  1. Red Alert 3 boasts a deep single-player experience that allows you to take control of three separate nations, and watch a rather cool story unfold. The co-op experience and the solid visuals are also a pleasant surprise for an RTS game. And sure, the acting is stale, but that isn't enough to hurt Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3. Fans of the series and/or genre, pick this up.
  2. If you are fond of strategy games, there’s no risk in buying this title. The handling for the PS3 is very well done, but the humor is a bit strange, sometimes.
  3. Amazingly it works - particularly in online co-op. [May 2009, p.97]

    It's a good and amusing experience, and if you're willing to overlook some of the gameplay issues that come along with it, you'll enjoy battling Soviets, Allies and Imperials until the next true RTS comes along – or until EA decides to provide the Uprising content as a downloadable pack through the PSN.
  5. A fantastic game that just doesn’t fit in with the everyday console crowd. It’s a shame because EA-Los Angeles really put their heart into the PS3 version, but the game ultimately stumbles because it’s just too darn complex for the controller crowd. Still, if you can get past the overly difficult HUD and gameplay design, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 is one hell of a game.
  6. 75
    While RA3 is still tip top -- featuring vibrant graphics, fast-paced gameplay, hilarious cutscenes, and the best co-op mode in RTS today -- it is absolutely no different in its "ultimate" edition than it was in its PC/XB360 regular edition.
  7. This is a game that Command & Conquer fans will enjoy (and it’s definitely the best version for those interested in purchasing it) but for everyone else, I suggest you rent it first.

    This is one of my favorite games on the PS3. A well made game with smooth graphics and very few glitches. People say they want to put this game down after an hour and I respect that. It happens to me a few times and that's what makes this game good. You progress slowly so you don't finish the game in 8 hours, which I hate myself for doing. This game is good at keeping you coming back for more, given its skirmish mode and lengthy campaigns. Plus, there's online multiplayer, although underused I've noticed. Expand

    great package and well polished game, but frankly this game takes too much time. usually after one mission, i don't want to do another in the same night, so game progression is slow and it's easy to put down and never pick back up. a good RTS, but menu navigation and mission objectives just seem to make you beg for the next save point so you can put it down and play something else. its a game that has been buried between my "games i'm playing" disc pile and my "games i'm done playing" disc pile, and that is a game limbo in which few titles ever see the light of day again.

    i hate myself for giving this game such a low score because this game is good in so many ways but i cant give a good score to a game that you want to put down after an hour. the graphics are alright and as always the fighting is top notch but you can only play this game for so long before you want to put it down for the night and play something else because this game is too slow paced and im sure many people have gotten frustrated over the controls and the complexity of them since there is so many that it is hard to remember them all. i still play it but only in small doses because this game can get a little boring after an hour. my advice is to skip this one because you wont be playing it that much and i think you may just get frustrated with it Expand
