Red Alert 3 is a fast paced RTS game that features three different sides in battle, soviets, allies and the empire. EA have taken the art style of the series in much crazier directions but not necessarily for the better. Apart from the art style Red...

It’s not often I come back to a game and consider that it’s possible I gave it a lower score than it deserved. In fact, I can only think of one other game that, in hindsight, I should have probably scored higher – Dead Rising. The...

Red Alert 3 is a worthy game to spend your time at but we must acknowledge that its theme has been largely exhausted in the previous games of the series and the developer finds it hard to come up with something original. The new faction, the Empire of...

A host of new features including innovative special abilities, co-op gameplay, limitations on resource gathering and a completely unexpected fighting faction mean there is much for Red Alert fans to enjoy, even if the pace of the conflict might seem...

It is safe to say that the fan base for the C&C franchise is expansive and expectant of nothing more than a fantastic real-time strategy game. Thankfully the pleas of these fans have been answered this November with the release of Command &...

The gameplay is spot on with a myriad of new features to help you control your army a lot better. For instance, in most RTS games, when you wish to retreat from a losing battle to recover your losses, your units take eons to turn around and run. RA3...

The above only really applies to the units and structures however. The environments themselves are beautifully done. The water in particular looks amazing. If I had to guess, this is a reflection of the effort that has gone in to emphasize naval...

Whether you enjoy this real-time strategy game depends on how happy you are to have comedy thrown in alongside your armoured assaults. At heart, its just like its predecessors: collect resources, build an army and defeat another army. Much of this...

The Command & Conquer series is easily one of the most recognizable strategy games on the market. Fans have been following the old Westwood and new EA titles for more than a decade. It is safe to say that the fan base for the C&C franchise is...

EA is the master of mediocrity. They remind me of that really smart but lazy kid in school; as long as they get a C or even maybe a B they seem to be happy. As I’ve said, EA has a lot of potential with their titles, but it seems that they do not...

Over the top units, cheesy dialogue, and lively visuals make Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 a game well-worth buying. Click to enlargeWhat if Albert Einstein was assassinated by Russians before he was able to conceptualise the Atomic Bomb? This was...

Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 brings new things to the C&C red Alert series, which is a good thing, overall the gameplay is great, and all of the eye candy, including the scantily clad babes is well worth it. Cleavage aside though, red Alert 3 does...

I grew up playing all of the Command and Conquer games. The original Red Alert showed up in 1996 when I was thirteen years old. It was the same year the first expansion pack came out for the original Command and Conquer. The next year saw the release...

Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 is a great RTS game that will keep players going for months to come, and a welcome addition to the Command and Conquer series. There is plenty to do with the 27 single-player missions and the plethora of multiplayer...

For many, myself included, the days playing the original Red Alert remain some of the best videogame experiences. It’s hard to believe that was 12 years ago, yet it has lasted so long in the memory, permanently imprinted by a prolonged Tesla...
