  1. Even with its problematic moments, Commander’s Challenge has hours of tough and intense gameplay to offer console owners with a hankering for more Red Alert 3 action.
  2. One of the best console real-time strategies in a smaller, easily digested (or at least afforded) form.
  3. Commander's Challenge is a game that requires a tremendous amount of patience, skill, determination, trial and error, and plenty of luck.
  4. I will be the first to say that an RTS game on a console is not the best platform for this genre. But the Command and Conquer series has been one of the best for the console thus far. Real time strategy games are some of my favourite type of games to play but sadly this version feels more like an add-on. Not that that’s all bad, but I was expecting more for the 800 MS points.

    Those who are fans of Command & Conquer might even be left still hungry for more while newbies will be confused all together.

    New units were unbalanced. Story was the worst of any Command and Conquer game available. (Atleast Generals had one) Many of the missions New units were unbalanced. Story was the worst of any Command and Conquer game available. (Atleast Generals had one) Many of the missions were very unbalanced as the AI preferred to use mostly one unit. AKA Attack Dogs, Desolaters or Samurai Archers. The music was still not as good as Red Alert 2. 37 Out of 100 at the most. Full Review »

    Well worth the download.My total play time 26 hours 100% completion.Story does not matter so much the challengers keep you coming back to tryWell worth the download.My total play time 26 hours 100% completion.Story does not matter so much the challengers keep you coming back to try beat your times.13 Main missions and 37 side missions lots of content for you cash...unlocking more powerful units as you go along seemed to work well.

    Negatives are no multi player not even skirmish would have been nice to try out the new units against a friend.Also missing co op play! if the developers of the new Generals game thats rumoured to be hitting the xbox in the near future read this please include co op... me and my cousin loved that in red alert 3! was cool.

    Would have Preferred Gemma Atkinson to be back but im guessing they could not afford her for this ;)
