Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Dark Crusade review

  • Thrilling multiplayer
  • Non-linear single player
  • Challenging new races
  • Limited battlefield view
  • Getting slaughtered in multi
  • Steep learning curve

Multiplayer fights take on a fresh component by loosing all seven factions in up to four versus four mashup sessions - blood-soaked cauldrons of death for the uninitiated, but always intensely fun.

The multiplayer browser is refined and trouble-free in this third iteration of DoW, and even includes an observation mode so you can watch and learn just how the best players crushed you during the previous battle. Latecomers to DoW should expect to be manhandled by veterans in multi, but with two new factions to learn, everyone should be on even footing, at least for a while.
