Product Description

Review

Real-time strategy has been a staple of PC gaming for years. Several of the PC's most popular RTS games have made their way to various console systems, but all of them suffer from the same basic flaws: lower resolution and shoddy control. Command & Conquer for the N64 almost manages to get around both of these problems, and while the resulting game is good, there are still a few little clunky things that get in the player's way. The game's storyline, told through your mission briefings, is reasonably deep and pretty entertaining. While the full-motion video briefings of the other versions have been scrapped in favor of a slideshow of pertinent images, the audio is intact. So, depending on which faction you choose, you'll hear things from either a GDI (read: GI Joe-like good guys) or a Brotherhood of NOD (read: Cobra-esque bad guys) perspective. Each faction has its own worldview, its own various structures, and its own set of troops. Each faction does have different-looking vehicles and buildings, but do just about the same thing for their side. There are definitely differences, but the game is pretty balanced, so there really isn't any one super weapon on either force. Like just about every other RTS game in the world, this game is a tale of resource management. To build more structures and train enough troops to roll over your enemies, you must maintain a positive cash flow. You earn money by harvesting Tiberium - a mineral that rises to the planet's surface, forming dangerously toxic fields full of cash. Harvest enough of it, and you can build everything from basic machine-gun troopers to complex flying machines, flame tanks, and death-dealing obelisks. Come up short, and you can sell some buildings for quick influxes of cash, but this is usually a last-ditch tactic. Just make sure nothing happens to your harvester, and don't attack until you've got enough military might to crush your enemy two or three times, and you should be just fine. Those of you who have seen the other console versions of Command & Conquer are probably expecting this version to look the same as the other versions, complete with flat, blocky 2D sprites that are run in a resolution far too low to be discernable. But the terrain, buildings, and vehicles in the N64 version of C&C are done entirely in 3D, giving an all-new look to the game. This, combined with the expansion pack, lets you run in a higher resolution, which makes figuring out if you're looking at a minigunner or a grenadier a bit easier. If you still can't tell what you're looking at, the camera is slightly controllable, allowing you to zoom in or out a little bit. It would have been nice if the game ran at a resolution that would let you keep the map and building screen open at all times, since constant monitoring of your radar map is a key tactic in the game. Without the expansion pack, you're limited to the standard medium resolution. It looks nice, but it's a bit too blocky for my tastes. The game's speed and frame rate vary slightly throughout the game, depending on how much action you've got on the screen. At the beginning of a level, when you don't really have anything uncovered, scrolling is incredibly speedy, almost to the point of being too fast. When you get into major confrontations with the enemy, and structures are blowing up left and right, the frame rate sinks quite a bit, and the game's control suffers as the frame rate gets choppier. Aside from the frame rate problem, the game's control is well thought out and is definitely the best implementation of RTS-style control on a console controller to date. The C buttons are used to assign and recall various teams. So you can assign your attack force to the top C button, your engineers to left C, and so on. The analog stick lends itself well to controlling your pointer, though it's not quite as precise as a mouse on any of the control speed settings, so you'll occasionally miss moving targets until you've gotten used to the touchy feel of the cursor. The game features plenty of unit speech, and the music from the original version of the game has made it to the N64, though it doesn't sound quite as good. Keeping the audio from the PC version's briefings was a great idea, as text and still images wouldn't really convey the urgency of the game's various missions. Both campaigns from the original game are in this one, and there is a collection of pretty tough special ops missions that can be played separately from the main game. You can save your game at any time, though there are only two save game slots, so if you're the type of person that likes to save 20 different times to try different tactics, you'll be out of luck. The game doesn't feature any kind of multiplayer element, but considering that the only viable option would be a split-screen mode that would ruin any kind of surprise attack that you or your friends may plan, it's probably for the best that no time was wasted on a multiplayer mode. The single-player game is definitely strong enough to keep you interested, at least through both sides of the main campaign, though only hard-core players will remain onboard for the tough special ops missions. If you can handle clicking and dragging with the analog stick and the A button instead of a mouse, Command & Conquer is an improvement over the original game. The graphics give the game a surprisingly fresh look, and the excellent control scheme keeps the game from becoming as frustrating as the PlayStation and Saturn versions of C&C.--Jeff Gerstmann--Copyright © 1998 GameSpot Inc.

Product Description

The quintessential PC real-time strategy game Command & Conquer has been re-created specifically for the N64 with new 3-D graphics and exclusive missions not available anywhere else. Westwood Studios fully redesigned the game for Nintendo 64 with new 3-D units, buildings, and terrain. Play as either the lawful Global Defense Initiative determined to uphold freedom, or the evil Brotherhood of Nod bent on total world domination. Construct bases, command armies, and develop new technologies in a battle to control the earth.

Both the Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood of Nod have their own characteristics and style of play. Each side has its own set of buildings, units, and tactics of war. The GDI specializes in building barracks to house infantry, while the Brotherhood of Nod is a structure that trains elite shock troops. Throughout the game, players must seek out and mine the precious mineral known as tiberium, which provides both sides with the power they need to keep their forces operational.

There are a variety of mission types in Command & Conquer. Some require an all-out assault on the opposition, while other missions demand careful planning and strategy as only a single unit is available. Players must also deal with changing terrain and the ever present "fog of war," which prevents them from viewing portions of the battlefield they have not yet explored. Support for the N64 Expansion Pak allows for enhanced graphics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice try,but it falls a little short. January 2, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was good on 64,but it was somewhat disappointing.I was disappointed at the way your commanders mouths dont move when they talk to you,you'd think they would have added that in. The 3-d animation is really good in some aspectes of the game,not so good in some others.The boxes with a black stick coming out is the best impression of a tank they can give you,frankly its insulting,and the controls are way to hard to master if you are in a heap of trouble.The N64 control is too small with not enough buttons for C&C.But it does have its advantages.If you dont have a computer,then get C&C,just to give a taste of C&C on PC.The thing that surprised me was the "ghost" cursor they give you.If you move the cursor over a hill,it looks like its climbing over a hill,I like that.I think that the game is a good challenge for people who beat C&C,its the same,but it will feel REALLY wierd the first couple of missions.But even with all that,I still like the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best wargame ever! November 16, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was impressed with the diferrent weapons and tanks available. The idea of two fictional sides such as GDI and Nod is wonderful. The best weapon is the Nuclear Strike for NOD. It's the best wargame I've ever heard of. In my opinion it has better graphics than the original version on the PC.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everybody Wants to Rule the World November 18, 2001
I got this game and I thought it was going to be just an okay game. Did I ever find out how wrong I was! The game is absolutely addictive! You can play as the Global Defense Initiative (GDI)the good guys or the bad guys, who are simply called the NOD. There are 15 GDI missions and 13 NOD missions. There are also two exclusive N64 only missions for each side. The grapihics are okay, but not anything real fancy. If you want to run the game in High Resolution mode make sure you have an expansion pack; this also makes the graphics better. Just remember to go to the opions menu and select High Resolution everytime you play because if you don't the game will run on Medium Resolution. When you use and airstrick for the GDI or use a lot of flamthrowers, flamtankes, or a Nuclear Missile for the NOD, the game play will so slow down to a crawl until the fire stopsm but after the napalm is it out the game goes back to its normal speed. When a soldier dies he spills over and a little pile of blood comes out and then it disappears along with the body. If you run over enemy troops with tank or something, you get a squishy sound. When a soldier dies you may hear a scream. These are the only violent grapcis in the game. The music is great at times, but some of the tracks are boring. This is the best strategy game for the N64! A little hint to help is that the NOD are great at whiping out infantry while the GDI are better equipped to handle tanks and defensive positions. When you are capable to produce tanks and vehicles build vehicles instead of infratry because a NOD flame tank or a NOD flamethrower can wipe out a lot of infantry with no problem at all. If you play as the NOD then build turrets and light tanks to take out the GDI forces. You can use a group of light tanks to run over infantry. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Edition of C&C December 24, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you don't have a computer, this is the Command and Conquer game for you. While there are no new innovations to the classic CGI vs Nod stooryline and gameplay, the graphics and sound have been improved tremendously. The explosions and flames are particularly striking even without an expansion pack. The game has a great difficulty curve, earlier missions being easier than later ones. Conversion from mouse control to the N64 control is impressive. I found it easier to control than the actual keyboard/mouse combinations of the PC versions. Overall, Veteran C&C players won't find anything new here, but for those new to it, the game proves to be quite a find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great strategy game August 8, 2001
Command and Conquer is the greatest strategy game I've seen for N64. This game allows you to plan and strategize as the action happens, unlike other slow, methodical, and totally boring strategy games.
Another cool part is you can choose which side to fight on: the good side (GDI) or the bad side (NOD). Every mission is complex, puzzling, and can be won many different ways.
Overall, this is a great game and a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun on your N64: Mission Accomplished January 3, 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I hear the PC version is deeper, but whatever. To sit in my living room, in comfort, and play C&C in 3D is quite a pleasure! The 3D is such a nice touch. Ex. Where is the enemy A(nti)A(ircraft) site? I don't see it. But, if you move around, there it is! It was behind a tree. See? It's 3D, that's part of the game. Anyway, if you like strategy games, what do you have on N64? This, and Starcraft, and what? So, if you're tired of Mario and Peach and want a game that makes you think, and yet has lots of action in it, here it is! Highly recommmend this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun,but you don't do much January 9, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fun and challenging.I like everything about this game,exept you dont do much.When enemies are right by your men,you dont shoot them,your men automaticlly shoot them.All you do is command your men.This game is cool because as you beat more levels,you get to buy better troops.You start out with minigunners and two trucks.When you get a big truck,you get to run over enemies.If your not aloud to rent games where you shoot the c**p out of people you'll be aloud to rent this game because you don't shoot people,you just tellthem to shoot people.
