Excerpt: So familiar yet so different… As we mentioned before, Command and Conquer 3 is released by Electronic Arts, following the acquisition of Westwood Studios that have been renamed EALA. The game was in limbo state for quite a while, but it was finally released in mid-2007.
Pros: Traditional C&C gameplay with a few twists, 3 factions each with its own campaign
Cons: Graphics could have been done better, Frank Klepacki soundtrack is sorely missing
Excerpt: Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is a sequel to the 1999 RTS title Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun and its expansion pack Firestorm by Westwood Studios. The original story tells us of the battle between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of NOD, where you had to earn funds by...
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is In the realm of real-time strategy games, the Command & Conquer series is considered by many to be one of the omnipotent god-kings that preside over the more numerous but less-than-stellar contenders out there.
Excerpt: If you're a real time strategy gamer, Life is Good. Just consider some of the great titles that have appeared in the past couple of years: The Battle for Middle Earth 2 and its expansion; Dawn of War and its sequel, Dark Crusade; Company of Heroes; Supreme Commander.

Conclusion: Just to remind you, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is also making its way to the Xbox 360, as part of EA's continued effort to bring its strategy games to next-generation consoles. Expect the game to ship in May 2007. We'll have to wait another month to see how that one turns out.
Pros: It successfully embodies everything you need to experience in a modern-day RTS;
Cons: Nothing we haven't seen before, it simply lacks any tangible innovation.
Excerpt: This is the latest in the stellar C&C series and quite frankly it is shaping up to be the best in the series yet. This game brings back the popular character Kane and has really been improved over an already great format.
Conclusion: C&C has one major problem however. For those who’ve been raised on the new breed of real time strategy titles that focus on tactics rather than pure weight of numbers, the lack of indepth thinking might feel a little alien. But then, you’d be totally missing the point of C&C.
Pros: Looks gorgeous, simple, yet enthralling gameplay, fast paced action
