The Command and Conquer series is one of the most developed, longest-lived in strategy game history. What we get with Tiberium Wars is a continuation of that tradition, streamlined and with a few new features. The problem is, the "new features" (mainly in the form of multiplayer) tend to be painfully flawed, leaving us with a playable but not entirely complete game.

First, the single player campaign. Single player starts with the option of two different campaigns - GDI (the "good guys") and NOD (the insane rebels that some players will find slightly cooler). Supported by video footage that includes many known faces (Michael Ironsides, Billy Dee Williams, Grace Park, and Joe Kucan among others), you'll battle your way across the Earth in numerous missions. These missions are often short, but they tend to be both interesting (often with unique situations) and numerous enough where you won't feel you were short-changed by the developers. If you've played C&C before, everything will feel similar. In fact, not a lot has changed besides a slight update to the graphics.

Multiplayer, however, is where a lot of new features are added - and everything falls apart. A number of new features appear in an attempt to make this RTS game a viable "sport" with fans. These features include broadcasting games as a sort of internet TV channel ("battlecast"), various challenge systems, and clans. The problem is, at the time of this writing, multiplayer is painfully broken. Patch updates can cripple players and force them to re-install the entire game if they want to compete online; the interface makes it hard to select games; the network itself appears unstable at peak times.

Let me make it clear from the beginning: GREAT GRAPHICS! Physics and details are AMAZING! I particularly liked the exhaust distortions, the dust of the passing mammoth tanks and the burning debris falling from destroyed flying units!
And for graphics like that it does not require the moon an the stars hardware-wise! Even my office 3year old system, sporting a 3.2MHz P4, 2GB RAM and an nVidia 7600GT can manage the highest settings.
Why is this important? I have STALKER gathering dust waiting for my next PC - only, when it will eventually be playable, it will also be...obsolete!

The story moves along, new units get unlocked, you gather, you built, you defend, you read the terrain, you amass your forces and you push forward hoping for the best. No try it again with the Bad guys.

Where it misses the 5th star: one cannot hold a battle formation while moving as most major units move at different paces and (although the AI has improved) they keep bumping on each other. May be the next C&C could have some TOTAL WAR infused into it, with battle formations options.

- Is it balanced? Mostly YES.
- Does it require tactics? As much as one might expect from a COMMAND & CONQUER Game.
- Can you still hog resources until you tank-rush the opposition? YES (sometimes the only solution)
- Is it GENERALS 2.5? Definitely NOT. It has a clear C&C character!

True, I could do without the wooden acting of Michael Ironside! (Gone are the days of Kari Wuhrer...Lock'n'Load!)

I am new to the Command and Conquer series, so I bought C&C3 with no particular expectations. I thought that the demo--which I recommend you play before buying--was merely decent, but decided to give the game a shot. If you are into real-time strategy (RTS) games, this one is worth a try. It is fairly easy to pick up and play, has lengthy campaigns, and it looks great. However, this is, at best, second-tier gaming in my book. When compared to the likes of Dawn of War or Battle for Middle Earth 2, C&C3 doesn't fair well. However, it does have its moments and can provide some good entertainment.

Gameplay: This game has a late 1990s feel to it. It's an RTS game where back-and-forth resource collecting, tank rushing, and unit spamming still rule the day. But to its credit, these throwback features are put together fairly well. The game does allow for some strategic decision-making, despite itself. For example, you can tech fast to big tanks and the super-weapon and hope that the enemy does not show up in the meantime. Or, you can depend on air power to take out strategic targets and take a chance on the enemy not having good air defenses. Or, you can raid the enemy base with an expensive commando early on. Or, you can take a chance and construct turrets all over the place and play a defensive game, at least for a while. Sometimes, tank spam will win the day, but not always. A mixed force is usually best if you don't know what your enemy is up to.

The campaigns are somewhat interesting overall. Each of the three races (GDI, NOD, and Skrin) have their own story lines, which will allow you to become familiar with each side. There are a good 35 missions in all which should keep you preoccupied for a while. The missions are uneven in quality and difficulty.
