Weak

RTS on console is not fun

I played this game for a few hours and saw all of the familiar C&C mechanics that the other games had. This looks like a really fun game for the PC but the controls and visuals just aren't suited for a console. Selecting units on the screen is difficult and the radial menu can be clunky. I'm not saying there's a better way to do it just that this way didn't work for me. There is also limited zoom options so I couldn't zoom out and see as much of the action as I wanted and there were times I felt I couldn't zoom in far enough. I found it difficult to differentiate between infantry unit types so usually ended up selecting them all, then using the radial menu to narrow down the selection.
All of the control mechanisms were there, such as grouping and multiple selection, but the console control scheme was just too much of a pain to deal with.

EA did what they always do, take a great franchise and make a joke of it.

If you like flying bears, circus clowns, spiders, power ranger gundams and bubble warp fields then sure, give this game a go. The game is so over the top that even if you where on drugs you would probably stop and say... ok now THIS is just lame.

Otherwise.... go and buy some C&C red alert... 1 or 2 or anything before EA decided to ruin the franchise. I dont always hate EA, but this game is a complete joke and just does a really good job of reasserting my dislike of them.
