Product Description

Product Description

Continuing the legacy of the most successful Strategy War Game Franchise in history, Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 lets you become the Supreme Commander of Soviet or Allied forces. Shape the course of history by invading the United States or by defending it with forbidden weapons.

Amazon.com

Sequel to one of the bestselling PC strategy games of all time, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 concerns the full-scale invasion of the United States by the Soviet Union. With all-out war taking place in American cities and seven nations to play as, you'll have to choose which side of the conflict to enter: invader or defender. At your disposal is an assortment of land, sea, and air units, each armed to the teeth, as well as a number of covert units prepared to sneak past enemy lines, steal information, and sabotage their operations. Each victory your units acquire makes them stronger and brings you closer to winning the war.

The epic story lines of the two single-player campaigns are told with high-quality motion video. The game features an Internet multiplayer option, too, so you can test your tactical skills against real-time opponents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun, must buy for any and all PC gamers February 13, 2002
Well this is Westwood's 4th C&C RTS game, and it's GREAT as usual. I gave this 4 1/2 stars, but I rounded that to 5 to display on the title.
Red Alert 2, like all it's predecesors, is a strategy/war game by Westwood,a strategy gaming company owned by the huge Electronic Arts for a while now. It features 2 campaigns, 1 for each side, that walk you through the plot and train you for the regular battles ahead. There is a skirmish mode, which lets you play a multiplayer-style game with the AI. I once used this mode to re-inact the Bay of Pigs invasion, there are so many little options. True fun comes, though, with multiplayer mode, which is the main focus of the game.
Although in previous C&Cs, especially Tiberian Sun, there was a quite a lot of blood and gore when an infantry guy got killed, Red Alert 2 has NO Blood and NO Gore. In fact, when an infantryman is killed now, sometimes he'll say things like "Do'h!" and then fall over and disappear. Still, it's rated "T"like most strategy games. No swearing, either; the president says in the intro movie, "I wouldn't give a wooden nickel about your legacy."
The story is simple: after Red Alert (original), where the Soviets invade Europe in about 1940 instead of Germany because of some complex time-travel assasination that nobody really understands, the Allies install a puppet leader
in Russia. Seeming at first to be an advocate of peace, he later invades the Allies' main supplier and most important fighter the U.S.A. using mind-control and quite a few other intresting technologies. FMV movies will tell you most of the plot.
Once again, Westwod has included graphics that succeed in telling the player what is happening, but not state-of-the-art.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Game Rocks! October 4, 2001
(Note: This is Writer50's son)
Red Alert 2 features a new storyline (not pertaining to the old one), new units, new graphics, new sounds, and more depth, all of which are pretty good! Some of the old units have new features which add depth to the game. Like a Chrono Miner and the engineers ability to fix bridgers. The graphics are great for a game of this kind and if you know how to, you can edit the game in nearly every way. If you like war-strategy games or you liked Red Alert- Get This!
Some people (like those other than me that wrote a review for this game) don't know what their talking about!
1. For those you complained about the story, they use the word DECEPTION, it isn't cheesy! It could happen!
2. People complaining about new weapons and the year: It's kind of hard to tell what year it takes place in, but the new units used in the game could be developed in the future!
3. Yuri is added to the game as the Second in Command for Russia, is that hard to understand? In the next game, Yuri wants to take over the world :)
This Game Is Great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Come for the action, stay for the cheese January 25, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just out of curiousity I pulled Red Alert 2 out of mothballs. Especially in light of Generals, does RA2 still hold up? The answer, surprisingly enough, is yes!

The two big attractions for Red Alert 2 are its unique units and its unashamedly B-Grade Movie Acting cheese factor. Firstly - to the units. Because RA2 isn't based on any real-life scenarios (Soviet Union invades America? Please.), this gives the developers creative freedom to create the craziest units imaginable. So we have soldiers with rocket packs (Rocketeers), Tanks that can camouflage themselves (Mirage tanks), and shock troopers that fire lightning bolts (Tesla Troopers). To this very day, the units in Red Alert 2 are still my favourites of all time.

The second big attraction is how RA2 revels in its B-Grade movie roots. It was a huge surprise because so many game developers take the "grim and gritty" route. Red Alert 2 wallows unashamedly in its own cheesiness. It also introduced some very memorable characters. Udo Kier is suitably very creepy (in a cheesy way) as the Pscyhic Yuri. Tanya (played by Kari Wuhrer) - in addition to being a useful unit in the game, she's played with real charm and feistiness. There's Ray Wise as the US President, who's clearly sending up Bill Clinton. And finally, one of my favourite game characters of all time - General Carville, played brilliantly by Barry Corbin. He gets some great lines - one of my favourites is "I'm sick and tired of living in Canada. Get me my office back!". And his delivery really fires you up and makes you want to kick some Soviet [...].

That (to me) is what separates Red Alert 2 from any other game before or since. It flatly refuses to take itself seriously and invites the player to have a lot of fun. The graphics may not be as advanced as Generals, but the gameplay and memorable characters more than make up for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those of you who enjoy strategy games... March 15, 2002
A Kid's Review
Anybody who as ever played a strategy game and enjoyed it, this is the game for you! I borrowed this game from a friend for one day, and the next day I was out at the store buying it. I have been playing it for as long as I can remember, and I still try to play it as much as possible.
Some people are saying that this game requires no strategy whatsoever. Well, people who say that are most likely not winning a game right now. That is because they do not play with strategy, they simply build thirty tanks and watch them get blown up by the enemy defenses. As with any RTS game, you need to use strategy. Build forty-five tanks, send fifteen to the enemy base, and distract them. Then, send your remaining thirty tanks and annihilate their base. Unless I am mistaken, that is considered a strategy.
Of course, I must admit, Westwood Studios COULD have made Red Alert 2 with a Three-Dimensional engine, but that's not important. Sure, it may have a cheesy story and ultra-cheeseball cutscenes, but none of these things interfere with the fun gameplay of Red Alert 2.
As for parents worried about their children playing bloody, gory games, fear not! Red Alert 2 has no blood or gore at all. Oh, and also, there is no swearing.
All that I can say to you now is: BUY RED ALERT 2! You will not be dissapointed!
