    When I go to the store it says that kanes wrath is an add on. Is this the full 1000 G or just a couple of extra maps?

    Using the searchpanel on this website (a website about achievements) i figured out that it is 44 worth 1000g wink laugh

    @Hellgate Aeon aren't you a clever sausage!! However, if you know much about this website then you should know that an add on comes under a game and not a separate game! And as it says in the Xbox store, it is an add on, not a full release title, it also states that you need another game to play this content, so that to me says it should come under another C&C games and not a separate game!

    From what I'm understanding Kane's Wrath is a physical only release, then there's a map pack for it also called Kane's Wrath. It's pretty confusing because it looks like it's the full game, but I think the map pack is just an add on with no achievements

    My friend you should clarified that in a better way 😉
    Ok here are the facts
    Kanes wrath for xbox 360 is a stand alone game. You done need c&c 3 to play it.
    And it comes with its own 1000gs

    Further research:
    It seems that kanes wrath isnt available as download. It is not in my store. And the ms xbox store will send you straight to the dlc pack that is for the full game. I think you just confused the dlc pack in the store with the main game.
    I checked the achievements and that dlc map pack isnt important for gs.

    It seems you have to get a disc here

    I put the Tib Wars disc in and tells me not available to install for a full list of BC games blah blah blah

    Games aren’t quite rolled out yet?
    Either the update hasn't rolled out to your area or you may need to do a hard restart to refresh the Xbox in order for it to recognize that it is available.
    Mate hard reset worked. Thank you!

    Never played this on 360. Anyone give any insight on how the controls are?
    Not as good as the PC's, naturally, but very functional. May take you an hour or so to get used to it, but then you'll be fine.

    I just bought RA3 to get a fresh impression.
    You must work yourself through an annoying long tutorial. This is a hassle. But you learn to play. Due to the fact that you play with a controller, many things are managed in extra drop down menus and you are teached step by step. If you ignore that you end up having no idea how to get stuff done.
    Like it was said after an hour youre into it. In general it is a little bit complicated compared to the PC but it works.
    Good to go

    RTS is a genre I wish I could get into, these games are fascinating yet daunting for me. Whenever I try them I struggle to prioritize building units, knowing when and where to engage, knowing when to spend resources on advancements or additional facilities or troops. I get discouraged and fall off before I ever get the practice I need to improve.

    Good observation, most of their back compat stuff does eventually get added to the vault!

    I wonder if Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath will get a GoD release
    I guess some people are unfamiliar with the Xbox 360 store, as it is quite different to the Microsoft store. It lists all the DownLoadable Content (DLC) you can buy related to an Xbox 360 game, including the Game on Demand (GoD) if available. You can filter the list of downloadable content, for example to show only Themes - http://marketplace.xbox.com/Product/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-...

    Content is named based on the game, so a map pack for Halo is called the “Halo Map Pack”. You shouldn’t confuse a map pack with the actual game. They can’t call all map packs just “Map Pack” or that would be confusing!

    The TA web site also tries to make it clear that a map pack is not a game, since the map pack is listed under the DLC section of Purchase Options (although on TA, the term DLC only refers to what Microsoft call “Game Add-ons”).

    Before 2010 many games did not get a GoD release, as downloading 5GB or more just wasn’t possible over some people’s internet connections. Instead we had XBLA (XBox Live Arcade) downloadable games, which were smaller and cheaper and had a reduced total Gamerscore, for example Red Alert 3: Commander's Challenge

    Some games have had a GoD release many years after they were first released (such as if they go GwG), so we can always hope. Although with Xbox 360 now in it’s twilight years, there are more GoD delistings than there are listings.

    Played the hell out of Red Alerts on PC back in the day but I'm not a multiplayer guy on consoles and scanning over their lists looks like a lot of the achievements are based on that so I won't be grabning these

    Worth it just to get a new generation of gamers witnessing Tim Curry’s delivery of “Space!”
