Dawn Of War Dark Crusade increases it's game play with the new playable race, The Necrons.The game play still retain ' capture the strategic points' gameplay. But with the new necrons, dawn of war has increase its gamming experience. Like the rest oft he race, build, capture, and send units, necrons offer better experience in Dawn Of War. From my point of view, when i use necrons, it seems that they were UNSTOPPABLE. the resources needed are not very high if you like to end a base quickly. their most basic troops which does not consume any resources is able to take out base quickly. Like the marines, they are able to teleport to their strategic points if they are under attack. and with their weapones being upgrade, they are best fitted for both melee and range attack. the population is the same with the other race. BUT if the heroe is available and with the resurrection, population of the necrons increases and could even be over the limited population. The only weakness that the necrons have is that their range is limitted and small. with the long range attack from the imperial guards, they will be dead before they reach them, plus the moving speed of necrons is very slow, so they will be taken out before they reach. additional units were created for other races. But the terrain and gameplay is still intact as not to spoilt the game play.Try the new race and see if my words are true.
