The bitter war for domination of the remote planet Kronus rages between Tau, Orks, Space Marines, Eldar, Imperial Guard and Chaos whilst deep in their tombs beneath the surface the sinister Necrons are awakening after 60 million years in stasis. Now, in the 41st millennium, they have found a galaxy teeming with life - a galaxy ripe for harvesting.
In addition to the two new playable races, Dark Crusade will feature an all-new single player campaign centering on the conquest of a "meta-map," with each territory captured giving tangible rewards to the occupying force. A greatly expanded multiplayer component and a completely unique economy model for the Necrons will present gamers with the most compelling Dawn of War game to-date.
  • Two new playable races, each with individual features: Tau and Necron
  • Brand new Single Player Campaign experience
  • Playable by all seven races in single player campaign mode
  • Non-linear game-play: conquer an entire planet in the way you choose
  • Watch a unique, non-linear story unfold from your race's perspective
  • Customize and manage a persistent army as you sweep across the planet
  • Customize the appearance and abilities of your commander unit as he grows in power and influence
  • Discover the dark secrets of a planet shrouded in mystery
  • New units - Grey Knights, Orcs: Flash Gitz, Chaos Daemon Prince, Imperial Guard Heavy Weapons Team, Eldar Harlequins

With a change in design, Dark Crusade captures the emphasis on strategy and combat that the Dawn of War series provides. Admittedly it's beginning to look a little rough around the edges, which isn't helped by the awkward path finding and dated visuals; but it is easily the most expansive, balanced and entertaining offering in the series to date.

These games from THQ offer the great fantasy history of the Warhammer brand, to those who dont want to pay for the models.

Dark Crusade offers alot of new features and for the most part are great, giving alot of re-play to the game. the main map does get boring after while since it is a space version of Risk.

I suppose this game wont follow the story lines that are in the table-top game and for massive fans might find this game a let down. But for people like myself who like the idea of Warhammer but dont want to play the tabletop game, this is well worth owning.

Whilst the RTS games on PC get ever popular Dawn of War put some new life into the genre and Dark Crusade expands on that. It builds on an already excellent game by creating 2 new, and fun to play races, and a fun single player mode which will leave you wondering where the time went. Although it may not be the perfect game it is certainly one which will entertain and surprise, even to games who have no knowledge of Warhammer such as myself. Certainly a game worth getting.

DoW dark crusade introduces 2 new races each with their own new stratrgys. the tau is one of the new playable races and the necrons the other which brings the total count of DoW playable races to nine(Space Marines, Orks, Eldar, Imperial Guard and Chaos).

2 new inotive races gives the DoW series a much more open strategtic depth as it allows player to use the tau's mixed range of powerful range combatants with a broad range of melee fighterswhich helps balance out gameplay as many tau range units have low health.

The necrons give you many new strategys. for example they have units that lower morale of enemys in their presence and a much more customaiable commader as he unlocks new upgrades with the base. the necrons also use a stratgys like the orcs by only usng power(unlike the orcs) but build obelisks that work like waaaagh banners bt on sp's. They can even resurect units.=)

it even introduces a new campain which is like a risk board.

overalll a must buy for all DoW fans and a very challenging campain sytem which makes you use ur brain alot more instead of just charging in.
