I don't know about Dark Crusade, but a good example of a game you can play after the campaign is NeverWinter Nights. It has a world builder and a whole set of scenarios you can play by the mod community.Praetor Spectre wrote:Thats the problem with these stroy-telling RTS games - once campaign is done, you had better be really good or have good group of regular friends to play online, otherwise youre done. Fortunately for me I have at least a couple of diehard rts friends to beat up on and the game proves its value and gets to keep a precious spot on the o HD.
The WinterAssault exp added the usual couple races and mini-campaign but twist you played all the races of particular side (Light or Dark) not just one race all the way through. Neat but not enough to make u buy - what does make it worth it is the mod support and most req WA.
Very cool mods add a lot of life: FullScale, Halfscale come to mind and the most polished is Steel Legion which takes the Imperium from WA and makes them into a viable race.
The same needs to be done for the Tau in DarkCrusade.
Dark Crusade adds 2 races but its a conquor the world territory by territory with resource points and rewards adding to your persistent army - ala TotalWar Rome, Warlords, etc. Very cool and nice change of pace but not balanced: the Necrons are very tough (but cool) and Tau receive short end of stick. You can play with full ver of WA so 7 races but again its not balanced so online is tough playing but amonst friends who enjoy that universe - its fun. We're all waiting for the mods to be updated for DarkCrusade and them it all should really rock.
