Anyone who is familiar with the title, Command and Conquer, knows that this strategical war game is apart of first games of its class. For those who are new, Red Alert 3, is a Omni-present type game. (as like The Sims, Tom Clancy's End War) You have full control over your army.. soldiers, tanks, and aircraft. You control a entire army using your strategic maneuvers.
You play as a commander. A army is at your disposal and you have to lead them to victory. You have three sides to choose from Soviet, Allies, or the Rising Sun. Each side has a separate story, different structures, vehicles, soldiers, and technology that are all unique; requiring you to use strategic battle fronts to lead your army to victory.
Electronic Arts has continued the Command and Conquer series, Red Alert, nicely. They have not slimmed the budget, at all, on the title. With couple of familiar looking actors, and actresses like Jenny McCarthy, as Tonya. The graphics are all now complete 3d. No more 2d motions anymore for this title. The aspect has been changed, which you can now zoom in and out and even rotate around everything completely.
Notes- -The controls took me a minute to figure out and is only what I really didn't like of Red Alert3.
-I'm not sure if Red Alert3 is mouse and keyboard compatible..
-The skirmishes are still available.
-There is a Co-Op mode, with the ability of playing the game with a buddy, but you have to wait for a user to join before launching the game.
-There isn't a very huge selection of Multiplayer maps but they are still fun. There is no random map generator.
-Ore doesn't grow anymore its all in a large compound that you have to fortify.
-Everything looks completely different, but Unit commands are still available, only thing that is different is the controls.
This game really is not for everyone. But if you like a strategical challenge. You should try the game that lead the class of the strategical games, Command and Conquers': Red Alert3.
