    Command & Conquer Red Alert plays better than any other iPhone RTS, making its lack of modes hurt even more.

    Serious Command & Conquer fans will lament how EA completely streamlined the iPhone edition, but I think trimming some of the resource management makes it much more manageable for the new platform. However, at $9.99 without multiplayer (it's coming for free, unlike other content), it is hard to enthusiastically recommend Red Alert despite offering a couple hours of fun.

    Personally, as with most RTS games, I think there needs to be an option for game speed overall. Some people may want the game to be a little more "real time" than it currently is.

    Despite its lack of depth and a myriad of minor flaws, Command & Conquer: Red Alert succeeds in its objective of accessible real-time strategy with good controls and even better graphics.
