the return of Necron, the best race ever (in my humble opinion), love what they do in this series, unfortunately you can only play Necron in this game only, the new one doesn't have Necron, it's a bummer

The basics of the real-time strategy game have remained largely unchanged. This certainly isn't a bad thing as the Dawn of War experience has always been a super-charged and exciting real-time strategy experience. Two new factions and new units for existing factions add even more variety to an already stacked package.

I wish PC expansion packs had always this much bang for the buck! Dark Crusade is a great entry point into the Dawn of War series for newcomers. It has an incredibly robust single-player experience and you also get a good taste of the online play. It's more fun when combined with the original game and first expansion, but it can be enjoyed quite well on it's own as well.

Dawn of War was a fantastic real-time strategy game to begin with, but it takes an expansion pack like Dark Crusade to make the original game feel as fresh and interesting as ever two years later. It helps that the game's presentation has held up so well, between the spectacular graphics and all the thunderous weapon effects and lively unit voices, but it's all been built on a foundation of great underlying tactical gameplay.
