DoW Dark crusade

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but this is the best I can do at present time. In dark crusade can you do a CSM campain. If not what DoW titles can you that are cheap ?

You can do the campaign as CSM, but its more of a map based campaign than a narrative one.

dark crusade is very much a tactical campaign that you can play as chaos for. the narrative only comes in when you purge an enemy race from the game. Soulstorm also has a similar campaign but imo crusade is so much better

My brother wants to know if Tau are playable on Dark Crusade. Also would winter assault be better because I really like the strategic elment

I also don't have any previous titles so any expansions I can't do but I do like the look of winter assault if you can play as CSM

Dark Crusade was Crons and Tau.

Soul Storm is Witch hunters and DE.

the 'campaign' in the origional and winter assault were both story driven, the others are more tactical you can play anything take over the map, style of campaigns which i prefered over the 'story' driven versions, especially from the joy that message i posted earlier was.

Yes. There is a Chaos campaign in "Winter Assault (you play as Orks as well if you play the Chaos one), Dark Crusade and Soulstorm. There is also a Chaos campaign in Dawn of War II: Retribution.

Hope it helps.

First three for a tenner http://store.steampowered.com/sub/447/
As others said, DoW and Winter Assault are narrative, Dark Crusade is a better game in many ways but the single player is less compelling as it is map based. DoW single player is just SM, WA is SM/Eldar or CSM/Ork. DC has SM, IG, CSM, ELdar, Ork, Tau, Necron all as SP but they SP campaigns are essentially the same with slightly different cutscenes.

Soulstorm for a tenner http://store.steampowered.com/app/9450/?snr=1_6_4__13 - it is the same style as Dark Crusade but adds SoB and DE.

All these are DoW1 based, so are fairly traditional real time strategy - base building, resource management, etc etc. DoW2 is very different, it is an RTS/RPG hybrid. You have 4-5 squads max at a time, each led by a hero that never really gets killed. That said the stories are pretty good, and collecting all the wargear is fun. DoW2 is SM only, DoW2:Chaos Rising is SM but depending on how you play they can go all chaosy. DoW2:retribution is narrative not map based but more like DC and soulstorm in that you can play as any race (SM, CSM, IG, Nid, Eldar, Ork) but they are essentially the same game.

So in summary, you can play narrative CSM in Winter assault, map based in DC and soulstorm. You can play as chaosy SM in CHaos Rising and full on SM in Retribution. You can get all of Dow2 at http://store.steampowered.com/sub/7432/

I'm pretty sure I'm getting DC but if I'm to play CSM on multiplayer I think I need to get winter assault and/or Dawn of war 1. What's your stands on this.
By the way Doelago I searched but couldn't find it
