Command and Conquer 3 : Kane’s Wrath

June 5, 2008 at 4:33 pm (Uncategorized)

While basking in my free time and vacation I’ve been seriously playing this game. I just finished it after 2 days. Why the hell is it so addictive? I think its the non-linearity of it all. The fact that I can complete a mission in a seemingly infinite number of ways : sit back, defend and drop nukes, rush the enemy base with tanks, bombard them with air attacks, strategically use a commando…good stuff. Gamespot gave it a 7.5..but these are the people that gave Jak 2 a 9.1. For me its a 9.5. The guy who acted as Kane since the first few C&C games is back, there’s the “evil” bimbo who gets killed mid-way in the campaign, there are aliens…wonderfully entertaining.

See a video to understand

The end of the game described spoiler-free leaves you hanging as to what happens next, and to make it worse :

According to German fansite CnC-Inside, Mike Verdu confirmed in an interview that there’s not going to be a second expansion pack for Tiberium Wars – http://commandandconquer.filefront.com/news

So we probably won’t know what the hell happened till C&C4. It doesn’t really matter however as the story is and has always been a sort of crazy, wayward, almost nonsensical one, particularly for the NOD campaign. Thankfully there is the Skirmish mode to keep us busy till the next release.

There is however an interesting new C&C game scheduled for release soon, C&C:Red Alert 3 which is based on a hypothetical WW3 between Japan, the Allies and the Soviets which theoretically could have took place if Hitler never rose to power. It ofcourse, isn’t out yet else I would still be in awe behind the screen making stuff blow up, but it is one of the most anticipated games at E3 this year (July 15-17) along with the sequel for another past obsession, Fable.
