Because kids today are watching TV with images that change every 1.5 seconds, vs old TV where the camera didn't move for 5mins on Perry Mason, Command & Conquer 4 is "insta-gratification mode!!!!" x10.
The old crusty folks will NOT like what they did to their old time boarder-line turnbased strategy game. C&C4 is very close to the action in a 1st person shooter. You have no idea how your guys are doing because you can't watch the whole screen, you always need more! more! more!, and you have so many other players working on the same problems, it's total chaos unplanned 5,000 click mess-fun.
It's a cool game, but major 'warning' it's 'different'. Perhaps they should have re-skinned the vehicles into something else renamed it, and it would have sold millions of copies. The old crusties are dragging the reviews down. (sorry...honest)
old crusties.. hahaha So let me ask you this, do you like it if they market "chocolate ice cream" to you yet sell you "pineapple ice cream" instead? The reason ppl are angry has nothing to do with being an old fan of the series.
CnC series has a distinct play style and to label it "CnC" yet sell us this poor game is an insult to those who supported the series financially for a long time. Even if you label this game differently, the gameplay is still uninspiring and hardly worthy of EA's past RTS title
