The year is 2062 and humanity is at the brink of extinction. With only six years left until the mysterious crystalline structure Tiberium renders the earth entirely uninhabitable, the two opposing factions - Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of Nod - inevitably find themselves in desperation for the same cause: to stop Tiberium from extinguishing mankind. The unthinkable becomes reality and Nod’s enigmatic leader Kane takes off for GDI headquarters. What is Kane planning in the heart of his enemies’ base? Command & Conquer 4 draws the epic conclusion to the beloved Tiberium universe, where fans learn the fate of Earth, Nod, Tiberium, GDI and most importantly, Kane’s motivations behind his decade-long plan. In addition to the two campaigns on the epic battles of GDI and Nod, which players will get to conquer alone or in a cooperative mode, Command & Conquer 4 also features a new 5v5 objective-based multiplayer mode, promoting teamwork and cooperation and delivering a social real-time-strategy experience never seen before in a Command & Conquer game.

    C&C4 feels much more refined as a result of these changes - as though great pains have been made to nudge the series into new territory. It's all the better for it, feeling like a breath of fresh air. [May 2010, p.77]
  2. In the fourth and presumed final entry in the Command & Conquer saga EA chose to stir things up a bit. We're still treated to the cheesy tongue in cheek full motion video of series fame, but everything related to the actual gameplay has been modified into a much more action oriented formula. The simplified nature of the campaign is no home run, and only one multiplayer mode feels a bit on the cheap side, but co-op support in the main campaign makes this a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    But the inconsistent and ultimately disappointing campaign and awkward unlock system restricts the game to the realm of the good but non-essential.

    The last of legendary series and offers an ending that is truly epic. Epic fail. Redesign for the sake of redesign is stupid and lobotomizing is triple stupid. [Apr 2010]
  5. It's nothing at all like Command & Conquer, but - eventually - it's a thoughtful and bombastic multiplayer RTS that's welcoming to everyone.

    Straight fights in C&C4 play a lot like a boxing match between two guys with iron jaws and teensy weensy hands. You and your opponent can pound away at each other till you're both spent like an addict's last dollar, but nobody's knocking anybody out.
  7. Command & Conquer 4 is atrocious, end of story.

    Despite what other users said I think that this game is completly worth your time and money. It is indeeed not like her ancestors. But all Despite what other users said I think that this game is completly worth your time and money. It is indeeed not like her ancestors. But all the action gameplay, crawlers, cooperation between players needed, balanced units... This game isn't bad it's DIFFERENT. You either move along and enjoy epic battles or if you don't like it go and play something else. Would you like to rather have copy of previous CnC games (which were copied by almost all of RTS) with new graphics? Or you prefer something new, something you could explore, something fast but tactical, something different? Expand

    The game itself would not have been that bad if it were a new IP or an offshoot of the C&C Brand (Like a multi-player only side-game) but C&C The game itself would not have been that bad if it were a new IP or an offshoot of the C&C Brand (Like a multi-player only side-game) but C&C 4 was supposed to be the grand fanale of the traditional RTS, not some knock off. They should have kept the original formula and polished every speck of dust off of it. Personally I always like the C&C format of RTS, so I was serverly disappointed when I realized that the C&C franchise died with a whimper. Expand

    It is astounding that a sequel can have worse graphics, worse animation, worse visual interface and worse gameplay mechanic. Tiberian It is astounding that a sequel can have worse graphics, worse animation, worse visual interface and worse gameplay mechanic. Tiberian Twilight feels like and looks like a game made 3 years before Tiberium Wars. The new gameplay mechanic becomes increasingly tedious and unsatisfying, it just screams "dumbed down". Also I don't understand the awful visual baggage of green outlying of selected units, it makes the entire game even look uglier. Tiberian Twilight fails at the basic level of lacking high production values, and it tops it of with failed gameplay mechanic. A truly bizarre sequel. Expand

Gameplay is nothing like it was before, it is complete cr@p in fact. Online only mode is also an annoying issue. I was hoping for great story continuation and epic/reasonable ending, but there was nothing like that. Super disappointing game for C&C Tiberium Wars fans, don't even bother watching youtube walkthroughs. I don't understand how EA have messed up so bad, although I should not be surprised about that.

When westwood created the original back in 1995, they revolutionised RTS. They layed the base core of what all RTS games needed. Tiberiun sun expanded on this, and EA again expanded further, whislt also angering its community with shoddy balancing and too many changes of what was considered the norm. Having to seemingly not listen to the community, despite saying they have, they then release Kanes Wrath, which was essentially, what C&C should have been in terms of gameplay. Having once again displeased the community again with lack of patches and securom causing ALOT of system formats due to major issues with it, they now release C&C 4, which is nothing like the previous games. Just because the game references tiberium and uses it in a majorly poor way, has Kane, and has old units (that look totally different), does not make a game deserve the Command and Conquer title. This game should have been scrapped at the start and make how the people wanted it. EA, a company so narrow minded it seems, that they only care about the money, not what the people actually want. I do feel sorry for Joe Kucan who is basically the star of the whole series being sent out in such a poor, poor way. Expand

EA could get better results if they hired monkeys, C&C4 is an utter disgrace and when they pull the servers down after about 6 months all those poor souls who payed out good money for this rubbish won't be able to play it even if they wanted to.
