  1. Will it be the most incredible expansion ever? My answer is ABSOLUTELY!
  2. The multiplayer component truly makes for the great replay value as you can play as Yuri’s forces while online but not in Single player.

    These single-player campaigns are really the only part of this whole pack that came close to disappointing me. [Holiday 2001, p.84]
  4. Gives you enough to be entertained but doesn't leave you thinking you just wasted a bit of cash on features that should've been included in the first game.
  5. This little CD is oozing with so much gaming goodness that it would be silly not to pick it up.
  6. The paper-rock-scissors effect has never been so intricately factored into the units, the missions are interesting, and all your favorite actors (from Udo Kier to Ray Wise) are back to make Yuri's some of the sweetest revenge ever.
  7. 70
    Delivers more of their established brand of imaginative gameplay rather than attempts at innovative technology.

    In short, this is the best, the one and only 2.5D real-time strategy computer game of all time in the history of mankind. It was released inIn short, this is the best, the one and only 2.5D real-time strategy computer game of all time in the history of mankind. It was released in 2001 and yet it still had a much better story lines and creative ideas created from the developers as compared to others. I played many other real-time strategy computer game but I do not feel the "X Factor" excitement as this one. From the moment of installation which has a nice song till finish installation it gave the feeling of you are inside the story. I do not really care much about the acting of the actors as this is a review of the game and not the movie. This game had great storylines, missions and most importantly many skirmish maps and modded extra missions which you can download from the fans/C&C community WEB sites. I had never bored playing this game and still playing till now (June 2012). Thank's to the fans and C&C community on this. There is no doubt that Red alert 3 and its expansions Uprising had a much better graphics. But Red Alert 2 & Yuri revenge definitely had a better story lines and missions. I wish they could be reproduced or remastered it in a better graphics. Command & Conquer 3 and 4 are not even close to compare. I played Command & Conquer 4 and stop at mission 3 or something. I have no interest to continue anymore. Command & Conquer 3 is a much better version than Command & Conquer 4. Red alert 3 is a much better version than any Command & Conquer series. Red Alert 2 Yuri Revenge is the winner of all. Expand

    It is also worth noting a company that is developing properly. Everything is very interesting and chic!

    One of the best expansions in RTS history.
    New campaign is great, with addition to new Yuri fraction and his new units :)

    Everything that is good about this expansion really should have been in the original game in the first place. Everything else is half-baked,Everything that is good about this expansion really should have been in the original game in the first place. Everything else is half-baked, including the new single player campaigns, which are even worse than the original RA2 campaigns, if that is even possible. The main justification for this expansion was that Westwood wanted to turn their Warcraft-esque game into a Starcraft-esque game. They had their Terran and Protoss, and wanted to add a Zerg. It doesn't stand on its own two feet and isn't really worth the price unless you get it bundled free with the original game, or wait for it to become freeware like the original Red Alert has. Expand
