  1. Despite some control and visual issues, this Ultimate Edition is still an exciting experience, a “must try” for every strategy fan. The claimed “exclusive content” is not there, so don’t expect anything new if you already played it on PC – Xbox 360.

    Fiddly and frustrating, but not without its stand-out features. [May 2009, p.62]
  3. The best console version yet of the PC hit - and accessible enough to suit even real-time strategy haters.
  4. Essentially the Ultimate Edition isn't that much different to what's gone before. It's better than the 360 version on account of the improved technical performance, but, as with so many console RTS', it's got nothing on the PC version. If you're a PS3 owner looking for a solid RTS with good controls, this is the best the console has to offer. If you've got both "next-gen" consoles, Halo Wars is still the daddy.

    With poor controls and shoddy visuals, this is a low-point in the Red Alert series. [May 2009, p.82]

    A fun, and occasionally tense videogame, Red Alert 3 welcomes genre newcomers and casual gamers alike. However, C&C fans and real-time strategy stalwarts that get to grips with the controls may find the action a little bit lightweight.
  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.

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. Full Review »

    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 youi 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 Full Review »
