Excellent

For a good time, call C&C

From the get-go this game is your traditional tongue in cheek C&C game. I spent countless hours on this series from red alert 2 on the PS, to RA2: Retaliation on the PC, to C&C Tiberium Wars on the 360.

The control system has changed from TW and has become simpler and easier to use on the console. Most of the controls are based off of a trigger pull and a flick of a stick.

While I've barely scratched the surface of the campaign mode, the storyline in as compelling as ever...crush your enemy with wreckless abandon.

or at least that's what i thought until i got rolled by a simple medium opponent! as a veteran of c&C i couldn't stand for this!

The beautiful graphics and simplified gameplay make for a great experience, but the tank rushing ai doesn't give you enough time to set up a defense before slicing through it like a hot knife through butter.

The new faction has some great tricks to it and the ability to change your soldiers' weapons adds dimension to this great RTS.

I'd say it's a buy!
