As with the past 3-D games in this series, you'll play this futuristic war simulator from a tilted top-down perspective, as you build and defend bases, all the while commanding ground, air, and sea units to take down the enemy. Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath adds 13 new single-player missions and a myriad of new units, factions, structures, and powers to each of the three clashing armies: the noble Global Defense Initiative, the cut-throat guerilla tactics of Brotherhood of Nod, and the technologically advanced alien race, the Scrin.

While not terribly exciting, a new Global Conquest Mode has also been added, which allows desktop commanders to create their own turn-based games against two A.I.-controlled armies on a world map. Multiplayer over the Internet is back again, supporting up to seven opponents and a ton of new maps. An Xbox 360 version of Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath is expected this summer. While this console version will be a stand-alone game, it's a shame Kane's Wrath on the PC isn't – in fact, while it says "Expansion Pack" on the game box, it does not indicate you need the original Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars to play, which you do (the small print is on the bottom of the back of the box).
