GameSpy: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising Review

GameSpy writes: "It isn't that difficult to figure out the mental calculus that went into the design of Uprising, the single-player standalone expansion pack for Red Alert 3. RTS designers are often restricted when creating units by the need to balance them for both single-player and multiplayer gaming. That sometimes puts a crimp on creativity (though that'd be tough to say considering how wildly creative the original game was). Since most people who buy an RTS never go online, why not put out an expansion solely devoted to single-player and skirmish and let the designers go hog-wild, game balance be damned? Unfortunately Uprising is the answer. While it's certainly not a bad expansion, it misses out on a lot of what made the original so much fun."
