At the end of the day, this certainly is an enjoyable download, and value for money. Honestly though, I can't recommend it to people with PC's. The download is huge and it's not the best introduction to the series. Who does that leave?
While it’s definitely missing a few features that could’ve extended the shelf life and fun factor of the game, Command & Conquer fans will easily get their money’s worth with Commander’s Challenge. Anyone looking to scratch an RTS itch through their Xbox 360 won’t be disappointed either, especially considering the hours and hours of gameplay you’ll get for the delightfully cheap price.
Taking what is arguably the most compelling segment of the Uprising pack and releasing it on its own, players will have hours of play ahead of them as they work on and refine their strategy to dominate the three factions of the Red Alert Universe. However, they'll also have to deal with a less than perfect control scheme, a lack of unit information and visual issues to enjoy these strategy brainteasers.
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.
