Solution 1

XNA is a effectively a Game engine XNA Wiki[^]
 
WPF is Windows Presentation Foundation WPF Wiki[^]
 
Check out the articles on CodeProject, for example, here is a WPF 3D Primer[^], there are plenty other ones.
 
So, for 3D, WPF certainly is an option Smile | :)

It depends on what you want to do in your game.
 
WPF is better for small games, because you get all the controls that you can put down on your Window without having to custom-make controls.
 
XNA, however, cna do some amazing stuff.
 
Here are a few games by XNA:
 
Robot Game (3rd person 3D shooter)
http://create.msdn.com/en-US/education/catalog/sample/robot_game
 
Racing Game (Fast & Furious style 3D racing game).
http://create.msdn.com/en-US/education/catalog/sample/racing_game
 
Net Rumble (2D Massivly Multiplayer Online Game)
http://create.msdn.com/en-US/education/catalog/sample/net_rumble"
 
WPF is easier, but for a game, XNA is definately better.
