It was the darkest times in China, when ruthless warlords waged battles to satiate their endless aggression. Millions of lives were perished, and those who survived had only two choices ? To kill or be killed. The battalions of warring states Liang and Wei collided in a bloodbath that lasted from dawn till dusk. Only two men were left standing ? A FOOT SOLDIER from Liang (Jackie Chan) and the rival GENERAL from Wei (Wang Leehom). The soldier could survive because he?s an expert in playing dead, with a device strapped on his body that could protrude an arrowhead for added realismThe Soldier captured the wounded General, hoping to use the enemy as his exit ? By handing the General to the Liang warlord, the Soldier could be honorably discharged and returned home to his peaceful life. The young General, though taken captive, was always condescending towards the Soldier. The two men were often at loggerheads during the long and winding journey.Along the way, they encountered a mesmerizing but scheming songstress, who drugged the duo and stole the General?s jade medallion, the only evidence of General?s identity. In the course of pursuit, they became entangled with a cohort of refugees who robbed all their food and water. To make their life even more complicated, they were stalked by a ferocious bear. The odd couple was forced to collaborate in order to survive one crisis after another.Unbeknownst to them, Prince Wen, the General?s brother, was hot on their trails with his elite troops. What appeared to be a rescue mission turned unexpectedly into an assassination, with the prince desperate to secure his rung to the throne. At the end of the incredible journey, the hatred between Soldier and General was gradually replaced by camaraderie. A moral dilemma dawned on the Soldier ? Which was more important in life, the General?s friendship or the ticket to home?

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Wargame: Red Dragon is a real-time strategy video game developed by Eugen Systems and released in April 2014 by Focus Home Interactive as a sequel to the Wargame: AirLand Battle from 2013. Similarly to the previous games from the franchise, it is set during the Cold War, but this time focuses on the East Asia region, introducing new nations of China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, and ANZAC. The title allows you to command an army consisting of ground, air, and naval forces, and fight your opponent for area domination on 1:1 scale battlefields.StoryWargame: Red Dragon is set in an alternative version of history during the Cold War, where the Soviet Union doesn’t collapse. As a commander leading your troops, you will be able to experience first-hand the struggle between forces of NATO and Warsaw Pact in East Asia.Gameplay and Game ModesWargame: Red Dragon main mode is the single-player campaign which is split into two parts. The first one is turn-based and it gives you an overview of the entire region, where you can start your operations and move units between different regions or declare battles. The second one takes you to the battlefield, where you can command chosen units in real-time in order to defeat the opposing forces and either hold the region or take it back from the enemy.Battles take place on huge maps representing realistic areas on a 1:1 scale, containing several strategic locations you can capture. Once the battle starts you can deploy your units on the battlefield and move them around, order to shoot at the enemy units, make them fall back, change formations, and more. Because of how large the maps are, the game features an option to significantly zoom out the visible area.Alternatively, you can play skirmishes or join the multiplayer, where you can manually select what units you want to include in your deck, giving you an option to create a very unique combination of troops that will fit your individual taste and playstyle. There are over a thousand units available to choose from, including various types of soldier groups, tanks, helicopters, and warships from the Cold War era.ReceptionWargame Red Dragon received positive reviews. Reviewers praised the strategic value of the title and the gameplay that favors strategic thinking instead of fast clicking. They also appreciated the visuals and the fact that Red Dragon turned out to be an enhanced version of the previous games, improving the existing mechanics that proved to be working well but needed a little tweak, but at the same time introducing certain new solutions to make the title more enjoyable.

230 BC - The first sovereign emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, has consolidated his ultimate power with battles against the last of the dissenting tribes of China. With one last province to take, he knows he will be pitted against the one man he fears - his mysterious half brother, Li Zhang, leader of a peaceful province to the north. The new emperor's goal was to murder Li Zhang for the secrets he has kept from the world that would give Qin Shi Huang the power to strike beyond the borders of ancient China. The power over earth, water, fire, and air. After a fierce battle by the Great Wall of China, Li Zhang used the powers of Air Bending to escape with his many villages into the expansive and brutal Gobi Desert. There, Li Zhang and his nation will vanish from the histories not only of the First Emperor but of China itself.  Present day - The world's warring governments have simultaneously discovered deposits of an extraterrestrial ore within the borders of Mongolia. This amazing mineral has been found to have properties that, if processed correctly, have the potential to send men far beyond our own solar system using only a fraction of the material as fuel. The age of faster-than-light travel is now within the world's grasp.  Enter Department 5656, the secret US government agency known to only a handful as the Event Group, as they are called upon to join this expedition when it is learned that the recent and brutal nemesis they discovered as having control over a blinded Russian nation is leading the search for the newest of elements that will send mankind beyond the stars.  Join Colonel Jack Collins, Carl Everett, and Director Niles Compton and the rest of the Event Group staff as they attempt to discover the true mystery of what lies beneath the Gobi.  Skies will explode, oceans of sand will rise, and ancient seas from the bowels of the Earth will be called upon to protect the greatest secret in all of China - the legend of Empire of 1.
