When I first heard Red Alert 3 would be coming to the PS3, I was both excited and skeptical. Excited because of my love for the franchise, and yet skeptical because I had never played Command & Conquer on a console system. The mouse and keyboard interface was something I was not sure I could part with and I didn't know how playable the game would be without it.
With that said, I took a leap of faith and bought the game anyway. Although it is a different play experience on the console, I find that the new interface using the PS3 control pad is very manageable and after a game or two, it was no problem for me to know where to go and what to do. A radial menu has been added that allows you to select various construction options simply by pushing the stick in one direction or the other. Pretty soon you will find yourself knowing exactly what to click when, so don't let your familiarity with the keyboard dissuade you from buying and/or trying this game.
The graphics are crisp, although the tips and writing are a bit hard to read on a non HD television. The factions have a nice variety of weapons and styles and more has been promised via downloadable add-on content at a later date. The new Empire of the Rising Sun faction has some really cool new weaponry, including large mechs and transforming robots in the classic anime realm. There are a nice variety of included maps with more promised to come via download later.Read more ›
After having played both games extensively, I don't understand the lack of press coverage this game is getting.
This game seriously superior to Halo Wars in Every Single Area.
The basic controls are pretty much identical, but there's a ton of advanced controls available as well that make this game a pleasure to play. I control the game faster with the PS3 version than the PC version using a mouse oddly enough.
The Graphics in this game are better than both Halo Wars and the 360 version of Red Alert 3. The extra time that EA spent polishing up the PS3 version of the game really shines through. The game has more depth and strategy than Halo Wars as well.
The game has three different factions that really play out very differently, and they're all a lot of fun to play. Reminds me of Starcraft. In Halo Wars, you're stuck with only one faction in singleplayer mode, and two in multiplayer that happen to play out almost identically.
And most importantly, the game has a lot more meat to it and is all around more fun than Halo Wars.
he basic controls were nice and easy to learn, but there's a lot of advanced controls (hold one button while pressing another, double tapping specific buttons, etc.) that will be picked up during the course of playing the game.
The best cutscenes anywhere in any game, period! They really pull you into the story
Better than the 360 version and most RTS games.
The Soundtrack Rules.
Great all around.Read more ›
Overall, there is lots of attention to detail and plenty of options. You can choose between the Red Alert classics(soviets, and the allies) as well as the new faction, the empire of the Rising Sun. It's great fun and I think it's a worthy successor in the Red Alert series.
Those who are worried about the lack of mouse and keyboard controlls shouldn't be. The command menu works well and only takes a game or two to get used to. So far, my only complaint about the game is the price. I know the Playstation version had a couple small exclusive goodies, but we shouldn't have had to pay the full retail price when the game had already been out(and selling for much less)on PC and Xbox for over 6 months.
This version is great fun, somewhat harder to micromanage units with a console control, and I have yet to beat all the soviet AI commanders in skirmish mode on Medium. My only complaint is that about 30% of the time, if you load a saved game, there is no sound. I am using stereo 5.1 surround, but it seems EA should provide a patch to fix this issue, I've seen none yet. It works after I re-load, but kind of a hassle.
