    I think WC:RA doesn't meet the full requirements to be a 3D game as I would guess that it's a 2D game with a 3D projection which means that every in battle calculation is one in 2 dimensions.

    It's very rare to see any strategy games be complete 3D games but it's actually surprisingly common to have a 3D projection which means that the map appears to be in 3 dimensions and that you can look around the map from different angles.
    Video games don't cause violence, lag does.

    Thanks for the insight.  Wikipedia has some interesting info on the transition to 3D for Real Time Strategy games.

    There are few tricks that the game designer use to project a 2D (x,y) map to a 3D (x,y,z) map as the only thing you need to do is to calculate the 3rd dimension which is the z-axis. As you may already know, 2D calculations are much simpler as you have only 2 dimensions to work with instead of 3.

    It may be possible to play WC:RA on a computer. However, it's only supported on mobile devices so I don't recommend trying to find ways for playing it at your computer.
