  1. One of the most original takes on a first person shooter to come along in quite a while. The game's clever blend of shooter and real time strategy almost warrant dubbing CCR a Real Time Shooter Strategy.
  2. Only two other games, "Half-life" and "Deus Ex" have given me the same Buzz as completing Renegade has.
  3. The world of first-person shooters is so crowded that in order to stand above the crowd you need to at least have outstanding graphics, and Renegade fits that bill.

    Renegade has its assorted other problems, like Gump-level enemy A.I. and somewhat silly mechanics (destroying a building’s master terminal disables the entire building), but the sheer fun of blasting your way through Nod's defenses and just being a badass makes up for a lot.

    This game made me realize the greatness of Command & Conquer AND the FPS genre. I love the game so much and I can't wait for a Renegade 2!

    Single player was okay, I played through it a few times; however, the multiplayer is amazing, if you get a good team together the strategy the game requires to win just makes it so much fun. Even being on the losing team is fun as you struggle to defend your base. If that's not for you, Renegade was easily modifiable and you could blow all sorts of time into changing the game play. In all I love the game, and I still play it even now. Full Review »

    This game is nothing like i thought it would be. This game for one, has a LOT of bugs. Luckily i download this game, i didnt buy it. When i played this game was total letdown. The training is completely worthless. Enemy A.I bots is absolutely horrible. These guys was stupid as king kong. After i finished a single player, there is no storyline, lame....u could go on to play multiplayer, which i will talk a little more postively about. U can easily just join any clan, leave a clan, search rankings. Very cool. U have all your buildings and basically your goal is to destroy their base. Sounds easy? Well its not. Virtually the only way to navigate the map at all is with a tank, or a humvee, or something of that sort. The maps are just too big! This quickly becomes vehicle combat and not deathmatch. It really falls flat and totally extinguishes any replay value. Could of been a lot more, a lot btter. Im ashamed this game. Full Review »
