Kane’s Wrath Review

April 16th, 2008 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Electronic Arts, Gameshark, Review, RTS

I was playing Kane’s Wrath with a friend a couple of weeks ago and mentioned that I thought Command and Conquer 3 was the best AAA strategy game of 2007. Like a lot of people, he thought I was crazy, at least until I mentioned that I wasn’t including expansion packs. Let’s face it – last year was not a great year for original strategy titles.

Not that CnC3 is really “original”. But it delivers a frantic madness that has gone out of fashion in the RTS world.

So it’s a shame that Kane’s Wrath is only OK. The core game is still great, and the “conquer the world” more adds a few new twists. But if this came out last year, it wouldn’t even make the top 5 expansion pack list. Maybe we’ve been spoiled by expansions that add entirely new factions (the sub-factions here aren’t different enough to count) or that mix the game up a little.
