I have been playing all the RTS game's that have come out on the console. And by far I feel, this is the best one yet . It looks so much better on the PS3 than it does on the XBOX360. It has full support of Sony Online features (ie) voice chat, in game invites.
However I will say that Microsoft still has the best online communication with LIVE. It is very enjoyable on the 360, but the graphics and refined controls shine on the PS3 version.
I feel all the professional reviewers simply dont give the game a chance. They compare it to PC rts games and disregard the game. Let me tell you that if you learn the controls which are so smooth, You will be able to wage war quickly and micro manage with ease.
I am a fan of RTS on the console. And so far this is the best yet.

The game looks nice not great and has lots of depth in the strategy department. By the way does EA know you can plug a keyboard and a mouse into the PS3? I mean W...T...F! That's what you'll be saying when you try to command an army with your thumbs. Why EA, Why?!

The game looks good, pretty much everything else what you would hope and expect C&C to be on the PS3. The problem is that is is just to clunky trying to control it with a game pad. I felt like I was moving in slow motion with one hand tied behind my back.

That's not to say that the controls are terrible. I think they did just about the best they could, and if you have quick fingers and are pretty good at real time strategy, you may be able to have a good time with this. But otherwise just be wary that they didn't break the mold with this console version.
