Review

When Command & Conquer for the Saturn came out, people at our sister site, GameSpot, thought I shouldn't be allowed to review it. Why? Because being the "console boy" I am, they assumed I would give a two-dimensional PC strategy conversion a low rating for not measuring up to my "3D polygonal ass-whooping standards." Guess what? I played Command & Conquer all the way through and awarded it with the highest rating of any game on our site - it occupied every free hour I had (at work and home) for the better part of a month. Needless to say I was very enthusiastic about the PlayStation version rolling across my desk. For those who don't know, Command & Conquer is one of the best-selling PC games of all time. Taking place in the near future, players choose between two forces battling for world domination - the peacekeeping Global Defense Initiative (GDI) or the world terrorist organization, Brotherhood of Nod. As GDI, your typical mission involves establishing a base, increasing funds (by harvesting a dangerous mineral called Tiberium), and generating enough manpower (in the form of commandos, tanks, engineers, etc.) to accomplish your objective, whether that's destroying a key weapon, taking out enemy defense posts, or leveling enemy bases. Your skills are tested throughout each mission as you try to accomplish your objective while defending your base against attacks. What about playing as Nod? Well, chances are you're roughing up the civilians and making life tough for GDI forces while watching your back for the inevitable retaliation. Command & Conquer on the PlayStation looks really good. The graphics have more detail than you'd expect from a strategy game, and the between-mission cinematics are quite entertaining (especially Nod's). If you're used to the PC version, the lower resolution and control changes might scare you off, but the interface here works well and is simple to use once you get used to it (all point-and-click with a pop-up control window). The soundtrack stands out as one of the best ever included in a video game, and from start to finish, the tunes are simply awesome - featuring techno-pop that pulses along with the game. Graphics and sound aside, what makes Command & Conquer fun is the challenge it delivers. Each mission is tough: Towards the end of the game it can take hours, if not days, to complete a single task. With fifteen GDI and thirteen NOD missions, C&C has plenty of long-term play value. On top of that, there are fifteen Covert Operations missions (from the PC add-on pack), and five new missions exclusive to the PlayStation. It's no wonder this game comes on two discs. If you haven't played any other version of C&C, all of this will be great, but if you've checked out the PC or Saturn versions, prepare for a slight let-down. This game moves almost twice as fast as the Saturn version, and this is not necessarily a good thing. New players may thrive on the speed (no other strategy game goes as fast), but purists will be annoyed that even using the "slow cursor" option does nothing to slow the game down. Also sorely lacking is a two-player option that could have easily been accomplished with the PlayStation link cable (anyone who has played C&C two-player over a modem or network knows that this is the ultimate way to play this title). Overall Command & Conquer is a great strategy game and easily the best available on the PlayStation. If you're dying for intense strategy, you can't go wrong. C&C purists may want to wait until later this year, however, when Westwood releases Command & Conquer's sequel, Red Alert. --Glenn Rubenstein

4.0 out of 5 stars COMMAND & CONQUER November 21, 1999
By A Customer
A VERY GOOD GAME TO CONSUME TIME. YOU CAN ENJOY REPLAYING DIFFERENT MISSION AND TRYING DIFFERENT STRATEGIES TO FINISH THE MISSIONS. SOME MISSIONS ARE QUITE DIFFICULT TO FINISH.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anything can be better, but.... January 15, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was one of those that I had back on the N64 several years ago. I immensley enjoyed it then, and now is no different. If you are looking for a good game to test your reflexes and mind at the same time, then this is a great place to start.

On Commando Missions, you are a single solider armed with a pistol and C-4. Most of the time, your mission is to destroy a single building with the C-4. But getting there is the tough part. On standard missions, you can play as either GDI (Good Guys) or NOD (Bad Guys). Each has there different missions and locations that the battles take place in.

There was only one problem that I came across with the PS rendition of this game. If you or your opponent should have too many characters on the battle field, your pointer has a tendancy to be very slow. Several times I would need to move a group of my army to attack a target. But since there was alot of stuff going on at the same time, the commands would be slow to enter. Many times I would have to constantly click on a specific target to get my group to attack. Then because of the over clicking my team would become unselected.

If you should have a cheat device, (Game Shark or Code Breaker) then this game opens up alot more options and fun for you. If you are a purist(No Cheating) this game will still bring HOURS of enjoyment and frustration.

All in all, a very good game.

2.0 out of 5 stars not the pc version February 4, 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I am playing this game on ps2, but compared to playing it on the computer years ago, this version is quite bad, the grahics are extremly hard to see, the soldiers and units are very tiny and hard to see, the control of your commando etc. is terrible, the cusor and pad on ps2 controller will not help at all, the enemy units come at you so fast, and you can't shoot em down fast enough.I am quite disappointed in the ps version as compare to the pc version of years ago .Read the recview above in the game description area, it is quite accurate.As a command and conquer purist player from years ago, this ps version disappoints greatly.

Its a game I grew up with that I havent gotten tired of, its great for when you need a break from the other command and conquers. you cant cheat like you can in Red Alert Retaliation where you can get instant Nukes and Cash but its nice to change it up every once in a while.
