Was die Missionsanzahl und die Story angeht, so könnte man von einem mageren Add-On sprechen. Die Balancing-Probleme stören und auch den hohen Schwierigkeitsgrad könnte man als Kritikpunkt nehmen. Aber gerade letzteres macht ein C&C-AddOn aus und es gibt auch viele positive Aspekte. Neues Filmmaterial, ein recht fordernder Einzelspieler-Modus, neues Kartenmaterial sowie neue Einheiten für den Multiplayer-Bereich. Gemessen am Preis von 20 EUR bekommen erfahrene Spieler ein gutes Add-On. Anfänger sollten aber mit dem Hauptspiel anfangen und erst danach das Add-On in Angriff nehmen, ansonsten kann es zu einigen Frustmomenten kommen. Unmenschlich schwer ist es aber trotzdem nicht.

If you're the Command & Conquer fan who can't get enough, or feel like your skills haven't properly been tested, then Uprising was made for you. There's plenty of single-player gameplay to churn through, and no one tops the series' blend of live-action cinematics and candy-colored, fun gameplay.

Een leuke singleplayer uitbreiding met enkele goede ideeën die je weer voor uren in het Red Alert universum kan onderdompelen.

Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3: Uprising is a great expansion pack. It adds new units that everyone is sure to love. The only bad thing is the lack of multiplayer and co-op that made the original so fun. After players get through all the single-player missions and the challenge mode there is nothing left, and that is a true shame.

Uprising z pewnością w wielu punktach nie jest porównywalny z „głównym menu”. Brak tu szczególnie elementów kooperacji, które w dużej mierze zadecydowały o sukcesie RA3. Jednak wszyscy oczekujący kolejnych potyczek, dalszej porcji lekkich filmów, nowych jednostek i oderwania się od schematu „podstawki”, nie będą zawiedzeni. 79 zł to nieco ponad połowa tego, co należy zapłacić za Red Alert 3. Nie będą to na pewno pieniądze zmarnowane, tym bardziej, że do dodatku można powrócić w dowolnej chwili, bez konieczności dorzucania kolejnych płyt do naszej kolekcji.

Ob unbeabsichtigt oder bewusst, Electronic Arts hat sich bei der Spielbalance kräftig verhoben. Klar macht es Spaß, mit Yuriko ganze Heerscharen zurückzuschlagen oder mit einer Giga-Festung Feindbasen einzuebnen, als Fan will ich aber auch gefordert werden und mich an neuen taktischen Herausforderungen ausprobieren. Stattdessen klatscht mir Der Aufstand bockschwere bis unfaire Missionen hin, in denen kleinste Fehler bestraft werden und Frustresistenz statt strategischem Vorgehen gefragt ist.

"Hey ich hab da noch einige Einheiten, die für das Hauptspiel zu imba waren, aber voll cool aussehen!" - "Lass uns die doch in ein Add-On packen. Wir müssen nur irgendwelche doofen Missionen drumherum entwerfen." So in etwa stelle ich mir die Entwicklung von Der Aufstand vor. Wer das Hirn abschalten und eine Art Ego-Shooter-Echtzeit-Strategiespiel will: Bitte zugreifen! Alle anderen: Schnell wegsehen!

When it's all added up, Uprising is a generous package. Not as extensive as Kane's Wrath, but released at half the price, it offers you about a third of the original game. It's not remarkable, by any means, and though it's never dull it also never escapes the feeling of being an expansion by numbers. So much of it will ultimately come down to price: at 14.99 GBP it's a fairly steep prospect for what amounts to a long weekend of content. EA's contentious decision to ignore Steam and make it available solely on the EA Store and Direct2Drive will likely cause offence, too.

Red Alert 3 Uprising is op een handjevol aardige extra's na vooral een game dat de multiplayerveteranen zullen aankopen om met de nieuwe mappen en units aan de slag te gaan. In de Commander's Challenge mode zit nog wat, ahem, uitdaging, maar voor de rest is het middelmatigheid en frustratie troef.

Samodzielne rozsze­rzenie do Red Alert 3 oferuje kilkadziesiąt godzin zabawy i 11 nowych jednostek. Ciekawym doświadczeniem, choć bardzo krótkim, jest kampania, w której kierujesz Yuriko Omegą, japońską psioniczką. Chociaż Powstanie jest klimatyczne, to wciąż ma wiele błędów z oryginału, a rozgrywka jest zdecydowanie zbyt trudna.

Uprising's decent value at £15, but without any multiplayer features it lacks longevity and feels at odds with the original game. It introduces some nice new units and successfully makes a move into the dungeon crawl arena, but ultimately it's an underwhelming experience that never hits the spectacular heights of the game that fathered it.

I'd be remiss if I didn't add my voice to those crying out against the lack of multiplayer in the game. I understand the rationale behind the decision. Multiplayer gamers do make up a minority of all those who bought the original Red Alert 3, but that ignores the fact that these are also the gamers that provide word of mouth and keep your franchise alive between releases. More than that, if you're going to ignore multiplayer in favor of making a single-player expansion, you owe it to both fans of the franchise and the new players one would hope would be enticed by the standalone game's $20 price point to make the single-player experience the best it can be. Despite Uprising's many strengths in unit and map design, imbalanced units and lackluster AI mean it misses the mark.

Red Alert 3 Uprising may have abandoned most of what made its predecessor great, but it does retain all of the glitchy pathfinding and occasional animation jitters. Thankfully, Electronic Arts didn't abandon its commitment to great music, delivering some terrific new tracks to complement the visual mayhem. It's just too bad that in almost every other way, Uprising struggles to merely preserve the delights of the franchise, let alone improve them. In Red Alert 3 Uprising, compelling chaos has been bafflingly bulldozed to make room for tedium.

Nevertheless, Yuriko's heroic experiments in mass carnage do not entirely save this from being a rather underwhelming offering: she's just three large levels. The rest of the game might be dressed up in FMV spangles, but it's simply not produced to the high standards of the original game. There's skirmish aplenty, but no co-op, and in fact no new multiplayer offering whatsoever. I'm kind of okay with that, but I do hope that there's another downloadable expansion for Red Alert 3 that remembers why the co-op was so compelling - it might help to balance out some of the residual badness I'm feeling after sinking hours into Uprising.
