Summary: One of the most boring RTS games I've ever played. It's downright disgraceful that they could go from C&C3 (a pretty damn good game) to this piece of crap. There's no base building, no resource management, the units are boring, and there's almost no strategy beyond pointing your units at the enemy. Seriously, how do you mess up Command and Conquer SO badly? On top of all that, they've made the unit designs look worse.
Summary: I'll start out by saying I tried to give this zero stars but it wouldn't let me. The C&c franchise started my love of RTS games with the original game when I was still in grade school, but the last few games have gotten out of hand. The latest installment of the tiberium series is extremely disappointing. The command system of using different bases with different units is disorienting at best and a bad choice can sabotage a mission from the start.
Summary: I purchased this game from Amazon and then proceeded to complete the download. Once the download was complete I attempted to install the game and it required me to insert the disc before I was able to install and play the game. I made the information known to Amazon and they only told me that this was an issue with EA Games and to contact them. I have received no help from either Amazon or EA Games.
Summary: Purely and simply this is NOT Command and Conquer. No base building, no resource management, and no strategy at all. Just pump out a bunch of cannon fodder and if they die just pump out a few more at no cost. Joe Kucan is the only noteworthy actor and even he phones it in. The cutscenes are just bad and not in the usual so cheesy its good way. The DRM is just the cherry on this giant **** sundae.
Summary: I can't say it's the worst game I've played. The multilayer is an enjoyable factor, but could be tweaked to make it better. Besides the fact that the whole thing is different, I say it's an OK game. Nothing I would be willing to jump out and pay $50 for. I would buy it at the max of $20. Even then I wouldn't be all over it. I was really happy when I got into the b eta, and regretted coming out of it. I recommend you all wait 'til StarCraft 2 comes out.
Summary: Removing the title, and analysing this as a gaming concept in it's own right, CNC4 does have a few new and interesting things to offer. The skirmish mode, while rigid in some areas does allow for some new and interesting tactical decisions with a much greater emphasis on teamwork and larger battles. The crawler idea in itself in interesting and the option are relatively fresh to keep me interested in playing this.
Summary: I have played C & C since 1995 when it first came out. I was 35 Years old then and I thought it was a better invention than the wheel or the discovery of fire by man - even I played it on my antique DX 100Mz desktop computer Ie. 10% of 1 GHz process power with 8mb RAM!!!! But C & C 1 was the Best, Counterstrike, Red Alert 1, Red Alert 2, Tiberian Sun, C & C 3 excellent, Kanes Wrath Great! and Red Alert 3 BUT C & C 4 is BAD!!!!! Very Disappointing!!!
