    The first C&C game that started the RTS genre became history to the fans of C&C but not for its gameplay, buggy AI, graphics and sound. It wasn't until C&C Red Alert that fixed most of the issues from the first C&C. Gameplay is difficult and unbalanced as well as lack of stereo sound and music. I never got to play this game until it went freeware several years ago which also had unofficial patches involving high resolution. The story and the FMVs were also boring that was just the beginning. Expand

  1. If you like strategy gaming, get Command & Conquer. [Nov 1995, p.108]
  2. An awesome game, and exceptional fun. If you're a fan of "Dune II" or "Warcraft" then this one will be a winner.
  3. Playing the entire conflict in the role of the other side makes for twice the gameplay value, and I don't even want to think about what's going to happen when the six-player networkable version comes out. Highly, highly recommended.
