Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath
3 December 2008
Conclusion: Kane's Wrath is a commendable expansion to an already impressive game. It's not without its problems: the intimidating difficulty curve, lengthy load-times and choppy framerate (when things get hectic) may cause some to dismiss it but those who stick with it will enjoy what's on offer.
Excerpt: Controls controls controls. This one's all about the controls. With a number of Xbox 360 RTS games now under its belt (Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II), EA Los Angeles has more experience than most in the search for a solution to what might possibly be an unsolvable puzzle: how to make a good console RTS.
Excerpt: An expansion game can take one of three approaches. It can completely alter the gameplay of the original game, it can add new complimentary features or a new faction, or it can essentially give you more of the same. Kane's Wrath falls into this latter category, extending the experience of Command & Conquer 3 more than it changes or expands it. This is not necessarily a bad thing though, since C&C fans certainly enjoy the game's trademark fast-action gameplay.
Excerpt: A year after the rebirth of the legendary strategy franchise Command & Conquer, EA is at it again with an expansion pack. Known as Kane's Wrath, it was released for the PC in March 2008 and on Xbox 360 in July 2008. It takes place directly after the events of the first game and focuses players on Nod and its radical leader Kane. With a number of single-player modes and online multi-player, is Kane's Wrath a worthy follow-up to Command & Conquer 3?
Excerpt: The portable space is one where the RPG genre likes to experiment the most. Some of the most radically different RPGs, such as Infinite Space or Half Minute Hero , call either the PSP or DS their home. Atlus’s latest import, Hexyz Force from developer Sting, doesn’t stray far from the beaten path of the RPG genre, but still hides some welcome additions to RPGs. Hexyz Force moves at a quick and furious pace, keeping you and your band of heroes constantly in the fight.
Excerpt: As the expansion pack to the critically-acclaimed and fan favourite, Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars, this Real-time Strategy (RTS) game returns to the Tiberium universe with Kane at the centre of an epic new single player campaign. The single player campaign will allow players to experience a new story that spans 20 years – from the rebirth of the Brotherhood of Nod after the Second Tiberium War through the dramatic events of the Third Tiberium War and beyond.
Excerpt: The war over the Tiberium-scarred landscape continues in Kane's Wrath, the newest expansion pack for EA's popular real-time strategy game, Command & Conquer 3. Expansions can be hit or miss depending on the commitment from the developer, but Kane's Wrath appears to have been created by a team that cares a whole lot. Unless you're completely up to speed on Command & Conquer lore, the story in Kane's Wrath will likely be a little bit confusing.
