Some balancing on the squads is also awesome. Thaddeus has become much better now imo; and the new traits/perks you can pick up are cool!
I do feel Jonah is a bit... crap. Me and my buddy both aren't fond of him and rather rip it up with our usual squads. He is just so damn squishy.

Doom 2 was a vast improvement, with better, more open levels and a more sophisticated attitude to level design throughout. It's wholly better than the original game, regardless of whether or not it shares textures and enemies.

The other not only is an expansion pack that furthers almost everything found in the base game, but also keeps the community cohesive: there's no separation in the multiplayer community, unlike MW1 and MW2, for instance.
Yet, MW2 was praised as an excellent game, by most of the staff on the podcast. This expansion, that is in every way consumer friendly (except for the GFWL issue) and shows that Relic is listening to the community and trying to make the most of it's means, gets classified as unremarkable.
What the hell?

On a more relevant note, what do I have to buy to play as Orks? They're the only part of the Warhammer universe that I remotely care about.

Having a developer put out an expansion pack that keeps the community together, doing it the old fashioned way - new stuff in every aspect of the core game is remarkable in this day and age.
If this is unremarkable, then please tell me of a recent expansion pack that is remarkable.
That's a perfectly fair line to take and one we stand by.
