A must have for any RTS fan, this is the apex of the C&C series coming on the eve of its decline in the playable but very flawed Red Alert 3 and then its total debasement by EA in awful C&C 4. The unit balance and differences between the 3 factions are perfect, the graphics were way ahead of their time and still look great and its has a very long and challenging single player campaign with an interesting story and varied game play.
Some of the missions prove incredibly difficult, especially when players need to defend a position against overwhelming odds, but the fast-paced battles and great multiplayer features make it all worthwhile.
An excellent RTS game. Even though the gameplay is still relatively the same, that doesn't mean you shouldn't miss out on the story, exciting action, and ultimately the overall fun experience from the entire game.
Worst pathfinding in the genre. When you play mission, where your resources is very limited and your units always dies because they CAN'T **** EXECUTE SIMPLE COMMAND AND GET THE **** OUT OF ENEMY FIRE RANGE - only wish is delete this crappy piece of code and never install it again.
Similar to C&C: Generals - Zero Hour, the AI is just ridiculous and nowhere near human-like playing style. I've tried playing against Medium (Balanced) difficulty level and it's just consistently relentless at sending units to attack my base. Even if I manage to defend I eventually run out of tiberium.
I wonder if the developers ever bothered to play against the AI to see what it's like. Also looking at the post-game stats there is just no way that any normal player would be able to build units and structures and attack in such a short period of time. Really, because of this I'd say it's border-line unplayable.
SummaryIt is 2047 and the stakes could not be higher. Tiberium—a self-replicating alien substance that has infected the Earth—is spreading like a radioactive ice age. The GDI, a high-tech alliance of the world’s most advanced nations, is fighting to contain Tiberium, but Kane, the megalomaniacal leader of The Brotherhood of NOD has other plans ...
