  1. The big difference is the technical move forward. Action is fluid, special effects are pretty, and the cutscenes are funny and entertaining. Even the in-game physics, like building explosions and collapses, are comparable to first person shooters.
  2. Yet another noteworthy addition to the Command and Conquer license. With enough content to entangle you into an exciting single-player campaign and a satisfying multiplayer experience, C&C 3 is a strategy game I'd advise you all to pick up.

    Tiberium Wars does what the series has always done best; providing the most enjoyable RTS experience around via excellent storytelling, enjoyable campaigns and a lasting multiplayer experience.
  4. An excellent RTS game. Even though the gameplay is still relatively the same, that doesn't mean you shouldn't miss out on the story, exciting action, and ultimately the overall fun experience from the entire game.
  5. Full Motion Video, the return of Joseph Kucan, the introduction of a third race to play, and the incredible competitive multiplayer package really shows just how much was spent to make this game the best production possible.
  6. After years in the wilderness, RTS is pretty cool again right now, and something as cheerfully straightforward as this is just what's needed to stop the big braininess of "Company of Heroes" and "Supreme Commander" leading to another plunge into an inaccessibility that turns more casual players off the whole genre.
  7. The game is as homogenous and unimaginative as a tabloid cover, and is as far past its prime as Billy Dee Williams. It’s still a decent RTS, but it wins with quantity, not quality, just like Colt 45.

    I enjoyed the game and even bought Kane's Wrath. It's very pretty. It is not the best C&C game, but it is the last good one in the series. RA3I enjoyed the game and even bought Kane's Wrath.

    OFMG! EA has brought C&C back from the dead and it's even better than I could have ever imagined! If you've ever played an RTS game OFMG!

    Great addition to the C&C series. Does the 'traditional' RTS formula incredibly well.

    An excellent extension of the C&C series, it suffers from slight balance issues, but still a total blast. It's reminiscent of the An excellent extension of the C&C series, it suffers from slight balance issues, but still a total blast. It's reminiscent of the classic games, but with a shiny engine and, woohoo, they brought back good ole human videos. Multiplayer is a blast, but not too much of a metagame that I saw, although I'm much more into single player. Plenty of room for mods makes this worth buying for now and later. Expand

    EA should learn that high production values =/= fun gameplay. The cutscenes with Kane and Michael Ironside are cool, but that gameplay itselfEA should learn that high production values =/= fun gameplay. The cutscenes with Kane and Michael Ironside are cool, but that gameplay itself is tired; we've all played it before. The RTS genre innovates at a snail's pace; C&C3 shows why. If you've been spoiled by SupComm and CoH, save your money. Expand

    Pretty Average. No skills needed. I've played all C&C,an apart from good graphics and video cut scenes, there is no gameplay advance Pretty Average. No skills needed. I've played all C&C,an apart from good graphics and video cut scenes, there is no gameplay advance over the last C&C some 3 yrs ago!! Disappointing to a past fan, but with EA marketing push it'll sell. Expand

    Beware, the game secretly installs malware - SecuROM. It is likely to cause problems with your computer and is almost impossible to remove.
