The desperate leadership of a doomed Soviet Union travels back in time to change history and restore the glory of Mother Russia. The time travel mission goes awry, creating an alternate timeline where technology has followed an entirely different evolution, a new superpower has been thrust on to the world stage, and World War III is raging. The Empire of the Rising Sun has risen in the East, making World War III a three-way struggle between the Soviets, the Allies, and the Empire with armies fielding wacky and wonderful weapons and technologies like Tesla coils, heavily armed War Blimps, teleportation, armoured bears, intelligent dolphins, floating island fortresses, and transforming tanks.

* It's Always Better With Someone Else: Fight your way through three campaigns solo, or join forces with your friends or one of nine, in-game commanders, each with unique personalities and play styles, in missions designed from the ground for co-op play.
* Star-Studded Storytelling: Command & Conquer's trademark live-action videos return in HD, with over 60 minutes of footage featuring the largest cast in the history of the Command & Conquer franchise.
* Command the Seas, Conquer the World: Experience Gameplay³ as for the first time in the series, waging war on the water will be every bit as important as dominating by land and air. Gain strategic advantages by controlling resources in the seas and mounting three-pronged attacks from all directions.
* Ready your Man Cannons: Armoured War Bears, and Anime-inspired psychic school girls join your favourite Red Alert units like Sonic Dolphins, Tesla Troopers, Attack Dogs, and the ever popular Tanya.
* A New Threat From the East: The deadly Empire of the Rising Sun is a technological terror, with designs influenced by a mixture of anime, science-fiction, martial arts and robot culture. The Empire's futuristic units can transform into alternate forms, and they specialise in naval warfare.

sadly this game sucks badly because of EA new activiation system. You will spend more time fixing your computer than playing the game as EA like to put spyware on ur system. Although C & C is my favourite game ( i got them all) but this is taking it tooo far.

Totally agree, been a big fan of all the Command n Conquers, but this spyware rubbish has put people off buying this big time. Still a good price for the game, but I expect EA will be having this in the PoundShop the way there sales with DRM products is going.

DRM and spyware didn't bother me too much, it was just the hideously shallow nature of the game that ruined it for me. It's literally just Red Alert 2 with graphics as good as those from C&C3 with, in true EA style, a third the units and things you'd expect it to have. It's not just the mid-range units and structures you lose, it's the good stuff too. This means no more Spy Satellite station for the yanks, no laser tanks, no weapon upgrades, no defense strategy upgrades and power-ups, no more drones floating around defending and repairing your tanks, no warning sound for when a Keirov comes into play, and shamefully broken AI.

IIt's not £15 to play a game, it's £15 to feel incredibly sad at how EA have ruined a game series.

Thanks to you all for the postings-my son wanted this for christmas and i was just about to buy it-then i read your reviews.............
shall find something else now but thanks for saving me from a bad purchase.:)
#6
Loved all the C&C games (wish they'd make a new Generals one), but this copy protection stops me from buying this. 5 installs and requires the internet to install it, what a joke. You're effectively leasing the game and whats to say that authorisation server will be there in 2-3 years time. They punish the people who actually buy the game with this nonsense and those who download it simply apply a crack to by-pass it.

Hot price, wont buy though.

Totally agree with previous posters.

For anyone thinking about buying this please make sure you read and understand EA's DRM and usage policy for this game
#8
I agree with the previous posters too, but I am so so tempted at this price!
#9
Ordered already this morning, but after these comments, I've cancelled it. Sounds like a nightmare. Thanks for the advice.

It's a good game, and that's a good price considering the game has only just come out!

Single player is way too easy, and I mean ridiculously easy. The only time you'll ever lose a mission is if you run out of time. The AI won't destroy you as it'll send exactly the same attack at you everytime and from exactly the same direction. Once you've got a few defences there you can't lose and it's only a matter of time before you win.

Multiplayer is hard on-line. I'm not as quick and don't have as much time to play as some of the people on-line. But with friends it's a real good laugh.

What a fantastic price for a great game that can be played cooperatively. I paid £10 more than this a few weeks ago so snap it up. Who cares about DRM? I don't.
#12

Don't know why people make such a deal about it, you get 5 installs which should do you for 5 times formatting your computer. If you need more you can phone them up and they'll give you more.

If they haven't already then then will shortly be releasing a program to uninstall the program so you get your install back.

Really don't see the problem??

It's the principle. Do you want to waste your time phoning them up to prove to them you're not a criminal? Not sure about this one, but some of these "limited install" games have limits on what you can do, so adding hardware counts as an install and so on - you can be out of them faster than you realize.

In the end it comes down to us wanting to send a message : you wouldn't buy a DVD which allowed 7 viewings and then required a reactivation through phone calls.

Fair points, I'd rather it wasn't on there and I'm sure there are loads of people it will cause hassle for as you're right that upgrading significantly can count as an install.

But I'm now paying £15 for a game that I would have been paying £45 for 10-15 years ago. So at that price you could buy several. I'd rather have the cheaper game and maybe have to buy another or phone them rather than paying £45 in the first place.

That's a rubbish comparison. For a start it's not 7 viewings, you can play it as many times as you like...

Surely it's more equivalent to buying music from itunes. With that you can only install on certain devices. Not to everyones taste sure, but still HUGELY popular.

@ £15 I couldn't resist...

I would have bought this, were it not for the DRM

My point was that you don't usually (well, I don't) watch a DVD (i.e. play through a game), then immediately watch the same DVD again (play the game again from the start - unless it's Portal). You put it back on the shelf to take out at a later date.

I guess this is down to your workflow. I can't recall having installed the original RA 5 times, but if you uninstall a game after you move on , I can see how it would be a pain when you revisit it a while later...

Agreed, just leave it installed or use the uninstallation program to get your install back.

Indeed - it's more a case of not having to do that every time - choice (or lack thereof) is key here.

Can't say I'm not tempted at this price, mind you, I just understand why it's dropped this low this fast. Good thing I have a hefty backlog as it is. :whistling:
