-----------This is my review account, because the low playtime.
Graphics:
+ many new special effects
+ beautiful battlefields
+ smooth animations of units
- low-detail infantry

Atmosphere:
+ each of the nine factions with their own, nice style
+ many allusions to c&c history
+ 30 minutes new movie scenes

Sound:
+ good units comments
+ professional speaker
+ atmospheric new music
+ massive 6.1 sound

Balance:
+ challenging campaign
+ three levels of difficulty
+ all new units useful
- some unfair situations

Mission Design:
+ exciting, varied tasks
+ many surprises and cutscenes
- partly senseless secondary objectives

AI:
+ aggressive opponents
+ less pathing issues
+ halfway clever harvester
- many unfair and unflexible script

Units:
+ all new units look cool and fun to play
+ many possible combinations
+ clever special abilities

Campaign:
+ beautifully staged
+ answered questions
- only playable nod
- disappointing strategy mode

Game Size:
+ solo playtime around 10 hours
+ seven new factions
+ 30 fresh units
+ 59 multiplayer maps
- short, linear campaign

Multiplayer: Very good
+ multiplayer playtime around 100 hours
+ the new units and maps bring more diversity of tactics.

As the developers design dozens incredibly cool units, and then let me in the campaign only a fraction of play! Because of the dramatic missions makes Nods vendetta still a lot of fun. However, only about eight hours, of which the last 60 seconds again disappoint. Multiplayer strategists can not care, because in this area makes Kane's Wrath everything right: The units and sub-fractions can be seamlessly integrated into the game one, in every game I discover new tactical maneuvering. So be it! Kane's Wrath is something that old school RTS fans and die-hard C&C veterans will enjoy.

Score: 86 / 100

For those who said you can no longer play multiplayer, as they shut down the online servers, do some research first!
Just came out of an online game with a friend, just like before and found no difference
Check out http://revora.net/ for details on how to play CNC3 & CNC3 KW online, works a treat!

As far as quality goes, Kane’s Wrath provides everything a good RTS expansion should have. The Scrin, Nod, and GDI are divided into 3 “sub factions”, where 2 of the sub factions have a unique military specialization. The other sub faction has its default features from Tiberium Wars. Kane’s Wrath provides a ton of additional custom maps for skirmishes and gives the player plenty of extra content to continue enjoying Command & Conquer 3.

It's another one of those okay-ish single player, decent multiplayer games.

Since Command & Conquer was cancelled last year, this is probably still your best shot at a C&C-universe RTS. The community is small, but alive and kicking!

Kane Lives!

What else could I say? Classic RTS with great an atmosphere of doomed planet infested by a tiberium. And of course Joseph D. Kucan as charismatic Kane. Last game from a CNC series worth playing.

PS:
RIP Westwood.

id say that this is a fantastic game for the strategical mind like tiberium wars where you get the nod scrin and gdi... well we all know about tiberium wars and if you dont get it, really you need it to play this game so baisiclly it has all the stuff from tibeium wars exept it has more it adds in new subfactions like travelor-59 or steeltalons and even super units you (know how you get a commando well in this case a commando tank nod:redeamer gdi:marv scrin:eradicator hexapod) so personly this is a great game to play, esspecily if you want to move on because the only reason that people play tiberium wars any more is to use a mod called tiberium essances. so that concludes my review i hope this game sounds to your liking

The last good game of the Tiberian / Tiberium arc.
Stop at this one, #4 plays in a fashion completely removed from the traditional C&C fashion (no base building)
For best Tiberian war play, find Tiberian Sun.

This game continues the C&C RTS tradition, and adds a lot of new factions and units to the game. Gameplay hasn't changed that much since the original C&C3.

Although the game is called "Kane's Wrath" it would have been much better to have a GDI campaign added to the game. With that being said though the acting in this game is brilliant and Kane is one of the better characters, although the missions in the campaign are not that great.

However you can still play as all 9 factions (each core faction has 2 subfactions). Each faction has different units, upgrades and playstyles which does add some variety to the game.

There's also a conquest mode which is a "Risk" type mode where you can play as either faction and have to take over the world (The console version replaces this with Kane's challenge), and is for the most part a solid experience.

I can recommend this expansion pack, but not all full price.

Easily my favorite RTS to date. The singleplayer is so much better than any other game I own, I can play it for days and not get bored.
