  1. An adrenaline rush in a box...Everything about this game shouts quality.

    An awesome game, and exceptional fun. If you're a fan of "Dune II" or "Warcraft" then this one will be a winner.
  3. Playing the entire conflict in the role of the other side makes for twice the gameplay value, and I don't even want to think about what's going to happen when the six-player networkable version comes out. Highly, highly recommended.

    If you like strategy gaming, get Command & Conquer. [Nov 1995, p.108]
  5. This is such a fast paced game and there is so much action at any given time on the screen that keeping up could give you a slight case of carpal tunnel syndrome!

Not only that, it still is the pinnacle the RTS genre and started one of the greatest series of games in gaming history. I remember getting this game way back in 97 and playing it for hours. Even my dad played a lot too. It took me forever to beat the game because of how much you have to strategize to beat each mission; sending your units at the most opportune time, sending the right units, organizing your units to optimize their potential, all in the midst of fending off the enemy and gaining ground. Most importantly, the story is amazing. Full-motion Videos really set this game off to. I can still vividly remember the briefing for the final GDI mission; the general is distraught, clearly tired, and generally pissed off. It really made the game just that more realistic. Is and always will be one my all-time favorite games EVER! Expand
