Editors Didn't Like

  • Similar feel to last years Dark Crusade expansion, Persistent campaign introduced in Dark Crusade is nearly identical here
  • Very little back story: air units fairly superfluous; not much change from Dark Crusade
  • A few game-killing bugs; air units add little; dull campaign maps; nonexistent campaign story
