Don't bother with Soulstorm. Nun's with Guns ruined everything, lol.

Dark Crusade had a cool campaign though.

DC is a great game imo. I have them all although DoW 2 wont run on my pc anymore as the graphics card is borked. DC online is better than SS, though there are 150 + on SS and 70- on DC peoplewise.

Why not bother with Soulstorm ?
It's a great expansion, and being able to chose from 9 different armies is quite cool. I still play that game from time to time.

Eh... to be fair to the series, DC and SS were the stronger for the number of races, not reading the balance issues they created for themselves. If you do include those issues, don't bother.

There are far better RTS titles out there, and if you want a list I will gladly forward it, however, that is not the point of this topic.

I honestly didn't care for the play-style of DC (and so by extension SS). The "stories" suffer, and playing on the same map 10 times gets infuriating, especially when the Comp starts to cheat. Much prefer more linear based RTS campaigns (like what the first two had).

Dark Crusade was my favorite. The campaign was basically Galactic Conquest from Battlefront, but with 40k. Kick ass.

worth getting DC and SS if only for the mods available
