When I first began my own dark crusade I was delighted with every change I found, everything seemed to have changed exactly howd id hoped and wished for.

After a while though the cracks appear, the campaign map while it is a very good addition is unfortunatly the only real single player option and leads to many repetitive battles.

The two new races having spent much of my early teens playing warhammer or things like that I had hoped the tyranids would make an appearance but are sadly adscent instead you get two races id never seen before, seemingly undead androids and manga characters.

I would recommend Dark Crusade heartily and Dawn of War is easily a top 5 all time game but they just couldve done so much more...

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.

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.

dark crusade is a vast improvment on the previous titles, the campaign map system is great, and the addition of wargear adds a new perspective 2 the game,

the addition of 2 new races and new units for old races are both cool and freshen up the gameplay, however the game quickly becomes repetitive, as it dusn't take a great deal of tactical knowledge to outwit the ai, id recomend it to fans of the warhammer franchaise but you people propably allready have it but not to more serious gamers as it really dusnt compete with the more tactical games such as C+C or warcraft

hope this helps
