Saw this while mooching about after my shift and thought it was too much of an irrisistable deal to pass up on.
Not sure if it is available online on Tesco jersey thought. Checked online and all the retailers I thought to check have it going for £26.99. You are saving over £12 for this so grab yourself a good christmas present for somebody.
I will have to get back on the expirary date, I checked but I've forgotten already (its past the 20th though). Oops.

Demo on the 360 was absolute pants, its like C&C for pre-school.

Not a patch on Tiberian Wars or Kains Wrath, but a good price for what is a new (poor) release!

Actually, the majority of reviews I've read myself (including game magazines) seem to be split. While I won't be buying this myself (I'm sticking with C&C Generals / Zero Hour inc. Mods), the offer is actually rather decent. Most sites are selling this for £25-30.

If i remember right deals running until 24th (along with mirrors edge 19.99 ps3/360)-it's also down to around £27.71 on the 360 but i think play are [email protected] last time i checked.

I read through some of the reviews. It seems most people hate the DRM. The game reviews are very mixed. Have a look on Wiki here for more info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Command_and_Conquer_3#Reviews

Heat added but not for me because of the DRM.

They give it a slating mostly due to the DRM involved. Look at any recent (Big) PC title and you'll see the same thing (Crysis: Warhead, Spore, Mass Effect). In essence you're only able to "activate" the game (online) 5 times, and this has no doubt led to many boycotting the game and the prices falling accordingly.
Whether this is a problem for you or not is up to you to decide (personally I think 5 activations may be enough for my average use but it's a matter of principle for me), but the game itself got a commendable 81/100 on metacritic.
#12
Heat added.............. However the item is now out of stock....... :grrr:
#13
allow the DRM guys - no idea what that is anyway! the game is awesome - the Chinise are attacking now!!!!

Only problem is that it is hard! even on easy I found it difficult - maybe because I am ****! I am still waiting to overrun a base with 80 tanks and 500 men and 200 helicopters....

Why is the DRM issue such a problem for people? Surely 5 times is enough to make sure you can play whatever happens... 1 reinstall due to say a system failure, 1 new install on a new PC, 1 at a mates house, and still 2 to spare...

Software houses have to protect themselves more and more from piracy and this is a decent solution. You have to do the same with versions of Windows these days...

Yes but most of us sell on to a shop or individual - it makes the game pretty unsaleable

The DRM campaigners feel this is tackling the honest user far more and that's the primary objection as far as I could see

This was on sale at Play.com fer 14-99 on a link from here previously - strangely Play also had a link at 26-99 at the same time - can't find it now sadly

What about if I want to play it in a couple of years when they've taken the activation servers down?

And it's not a decent solution, it was cracked BEFORE release. All it does it punish the people who give them money when the pirates get a much better "product".

I bought it for £20 from HMV in store at the weekend, the price has now reached a level where I can stand the DRM. I've bought every other C+C game since Red Alert 1 on release but not this ONLY because of the DRM. If it was any other game (Including Spore which I was looking forward to) then I wouldn't have bought it at all.

As noted it also interferers with the UK law enshrined doctrine of first sale.

The problem with DRM is that it only punishes the legitimate users that actually paid for the software. The warez people get a more usable version than what I paid for. That said, if I want a game I will still buy it and then probably download the crack so that I get the benefit of not needing a CD in the drive or checking activation status online but still compensate the people who produced a product which I enjoy.

Edit. And as the above poster said I also only buy games when they're 50% off RRP usually. I'm not paying full price for DRM lol.

also now at game for £14.99 less 2.5% vat.

Where have you seen this? Says " £17.61
Sorry, out of stock. Try again later" on the website...
#20
Just tried to but it and it was full price. How did you get it so cheap?
#21
It was the advertised price in store, they had a big flappy bit instead of one of them little labels. I also got it even cheaper with my VAT back but not sure what it worked out at as I purchased a few bargain price games.
#22
Thought I'd login and mention that he the 5 limit install only DRM issue has now been officially removed after a new patch 1.05.

Now you can install on 5 computers simultaneously as before but now there is a utility included that lets you un-register and re-register the game as many times as you like.
This has ended even better than normal protection as the DVD isn't required to be in the drive while playing.

It wouldn't be so much of a problem if it only affected this game, but it affects others as well. If you try to play Fallout 3 it won't let you. You have to download a patch from the Securom site before you can play a game that you have BOUGHT from another manufacturer. The DRM is bad enough in itself but when it screws up other games, well that really STINKS!! What if they didn't release the patch, what could you do then?

Looks good, cheers.
