What do these ratings mean?

The dawn of war indeed

Warhammer 40k games have always been overlooked stapled as a starcraft clone. Actually, it is more the other way around. When Game workshop decided to bring 40k to life on the PC as a srategy game, I was suprised.

Now, the second expansion to the excellent Dawn of War is out. Can Dark Crusade lives up to it's predecessor? Let's find out.

Dark Crusade implements major upgrade from the previous games.

-2 new interesting and new races.
-A full revamped single player game.
-New units for every races.
-Game balance

While not looking much, it is actually quite a nice package. The single player campaign can take you a LONG while to beat it with all races and the story is interesting. The 2 new races also adds up too and offer diversity that no ther races can match. The multiplayer is still solid though there aren't many people online (a 100 in overall) at the same time but fun can be had there... if only 40k was more popular....

If you liked Dawn of war and Winter assault, you will love Dark Crusade. A must buy for every fans and worth checking for people new to the serie.


+2 new races
+Full revamped campain!!!
+Long to beat
+New units!
+Don't have to get the original to play!


-Not many people online
-When is Dawn of War 2 out?
+Graphics beginning to show it's age
