Default Dawn of War: Soulstorm

So I was at Circuit City today, where I was looking for games as everything was 60% off today. I was specifically looking for Dawn of War II, which I was really hoping they'd have, but they didn't. Instead, I saw Dawn of War: Soulstorm, and, as I hadn't played the original, I picked it up, seeing as it said the original wasn't necessary to play.

What I'm wondering, though, is how much do I miss out on without having the original Dawn of War? Do I *just* get to play as the Sisters of Battle and the Dark Eldar? Is it worth keeping, or should I try to pawn it off on eBay or something?

If it is like Dawn of War: Dark Crusade, you can play every faction in the campaign setting but can not play every faction in the online multiplay without the other games, eg Dawn of War, Winter Assult and Dark Crusade.

Yeah I think it is like that.

Soulstorm was a bit meh, Dark Crusade was the better of the two, with DOW and WA being more or less the same I think with the campaign.

I think Soulstorm is entirely stand alone. I've played it on my computer without any of the other games installed, or entering their CD keys, and I could use all races. I don't think not owning the other games will limit what you can do.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ. Contained in a circle corrupted by crackheads and carnal cravings, he creates no concession to callous cheaters concentrating on nought but cock. Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Aye. You can use all of the races for the campaign mode and single player skirmish, but if you venture into the multiplayer wilderness then you will be locked into Sisters and Dark Eldar.

I'd have to agree.

DArk Crusade was by far the better of the two + the two new races in it were much better than in Soulstorm.

I got sick of the computer zerg-rushing me all the bloody time on Soulstorm... that's not how I want to play an RTS.

You ever try Sins of a Solar Empire? Its much slower paced than Dawn of War, and alot more fun if you are attracted to the whole building aspect of RTS's
