  • Summary: This Red Alert 2 Expansion Pack finds Yuri ready for world domination in a post-peace treaty, free world. Refining his mind-control technologies, he's created an army of terrors, from mind-controlling tanks to long-range psychics, whose brains are their biggest weapons. Play as Allies or Soviets, and take on Yuri in Hollywood, Egypt -- even the moon -- in 14 new solo campaign missions. [Westwood Studios] Expand

  1. Will it be the most incredible expansion ever? My answer is ABSOLUTELY!
  2. The multiplayer component truly makes for the great replay value as you can play as Yuri’s forces while online but not in Single player.
  3. Imaginative new units and missions and an entire new faction, make this a no-brainer purchase for Red Alert 2 fans.
  4. This little CD is oozing with so much gaming goodness that it would be silly not to pick it up.
  5. It makes an already great game even better, not only by piling on new features, but also by adding enough significant enhancements that the result stands out as being not just broader than its predecessor, but legitimately different.
  6. The paper-rock-scissors effect has never been so intricately factored into the units, the missions are interesting, and all your favorite actors (from Udo Kier to Ray Wise) are back to make Yuri's some of the sweetest revenge ever.
  7. Delivers more of their established brand of imaginative gameplay rather than attempts at innovative technology.

    In short, this is the best, the one and only 2.5D real-time strategy computer game of all time in the history of mankind. It was released in 2001 and yet it still had a much better story lines and creative ideas created from the developers as compared to others. I played many other real-time strategy computer game but I do not feel the "X Factor" excitement as this one. From the moment of installation which has a nice song till finish installation it gave the feeling of you are inside the story. I do not really care much about the acting of the actors as this is a review of the game and not the movie. This game had great storylines, missions and most importantly many skirmish maps and modded extra missions which you can download from the fans/C&C community WEB sites. I had never bored playing this game and still playing till now (June 2012). Thank's to the fans and C&C community on this. There is no doubt that Red alert 3 and its expansions Uprising had a much better graphics. But Red Alert 2 & Yuri revenge definitely had a better story lines and missions. I wish they could be reproduced or remastered it in a better graphics. Command & Conquer 3 and 4 are not even close to compare. I played Command & Conquer 4 and stop at mission 3 or something. I have no interest to continue anymore. Command & Conquer 3 is a much better version than Command & Conquer 4. Red alert 3 is a much better version than any Command & Conquer series. Red Alert 2 Yuri Revenge is the winner of all. Expand

    This addon is just as good as a addon can be. New units, campaigns, cutscenes. Everything done in the same good quality like the original game. Just fun to play. Expand

    With yuri character the game being good. Yuri can control other unit, is difficult to kill yuri alone. The storyline about soviet, allied, and yuri make this game better. Expand

    It's the first and only time that a RTS expansion pack is better than the original. Despite 14 missions and no Yuri campaign, this game owes up with a lot of new interesting stuff, including the Yuri faction. However, there were some unbalanced issues that didn't quite get the gameplay going. Expand

    While I didn't much care for the storyline in the campaign, the new Yuri faction is a really fun addition to an already-awesome game. This expansion adds a whole new army with interesting new abilities, such as mind-control, unit recycling, and gravity-warping. I was never keen on playing as Yuri in multiplayer, but always found it to be fun when just messing around in skirmish. Definitely worth playing if you're already playing through Red Alert 2. Expand
