    Three words: Best game ever!

    Its a great game, its like Age of Empires if you guys have ever played that before. You build buildings, you have a base, you protect it, the campaign rocks, you have different nationalities like AOE, etc.

    If you know anything else about it please feel free to share! =)

    Never played it.

    Sounds C&C-ish.

    Yep its definitely like Command and Conquer. Though Yuri's Revenge's campaigns are a whole lot cooler.

    Red Alert 1 was the first RTS I played. Have so many awesome memories playing skirmish with some friends :D

    Red Alert 2 was also crack. I think the C&C is one of the series that got ruined by going 3D. :(

    I've played the C&C 3 demo recently, loads of cool people in the intro.

    Boomer from BSG
    Dr Cameron from House
    Sawyer from Lost

    and even Lando!!

    Red Alert 2 was fun, I really missed the ability to have sea based units in Generals, nothing was more fun than sending off a squad of dolphins to take out some enemy submarines :p

    I thought so...I just wasn't really sure, so I didn't put that in my first post, (also I didn't even bother checking through Wikipedia either..^_^) and mostly I didn't
    want to feel really stupid by putting it up there and me being wrong...:yowch:
     
  11. RA2 and YR were amazing, but 3 is out now and it's incredible. :)
    Just been playing the GDI campaign... I'll start playing online soon, but I want to get good with the Scrin first. They're insanely strong, but I need to develop strategies beforehand.

    I like C&C 3 - its feeling has sort of returned to the roots of C&C and what made it great.

    I personally didn't like RA 2 as the plot went way too sci-fi, which was acceptable in C&C but I think that RA should have remained coldwarish rather than suddenly adding a psychic into the mix.

    Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge are awesome :)
    I didn't play previous C&C's so I don't know how these compare.
    I didn't like Generals that much either.
