Summary: I thought the graphics were decent with respect to the units, and excellent for the terrain and explosions. That said, I really would have liked to see this game developed on the DirectX 10 platform. I thought the game engine was very smooth (not choppy when you have a lot of units battling) and I didn't encounter any bugs or in-game crashes, so kudos to EA and the developers for not rushing an unfinished product out the door before it was ready.
Summary: Command & Conquer 3 is a definite "must have" for C&C and RTS fans all around. Once again, you get to choose whose side you want to fight for. The Global Defense Initiative or The Brotherhood of NOD. The graphics are great, you don't need a super computer to play and the controls are relatively easy. The only thing I didn't like about the game is after you beat it playing both sides, you unlock a third race called the Scrin.
Some new polish on some old gameplay (fun nonetheless)

Summary: I am new to the Command and Conquer series, so I bought C&C3 with no particular expectations. I thought that the demo--which I recommend you play before buying--was merely decent, but decided to give the game a shot. If you are into real-time strategy (RTS) games, this one is worth a try. It is fairly easy to pick up and play, has lengthy campaigns, and it looks great. However, this is, at best, second-tier gaming in my book.
Summary: Let me make it clear from the beginning: GREAT GRAPHICS! Physics and details are AMAZING! I particularly liked the exhaust distortions, the dust of the passing mammoth tanks and the burning debris falling from destroyed flying units! And for graphics like that it does not require the moon an the stars hardware-wise! Even my office 3year old system, sporting a 3.2MHz P4, 2GB RAM and an nVidia 7600GT can manage the highest settings. Why is this important?
excellent follow-up to a series that defines the genre

Summary: The changes are many, this game is vastly different from any other Command and Conquer game. Despite that, it is great fun, and devotees of the earlier games will know how to use the interface well within seconds. Use of multiple build queues is probably the biggest and best change, it speeds up the gameplay considerably without sacrificing the fun of the series. HD cut scenes are excellent, with actors deserving of the money they earned, unlike almost all other games.
Conclusion: ok well ive played command and conquer from the begging i still need to get my hand on that pack that contains the first decades games but here we are with tiberium wars now for a C&C vetran like myself this is gold 5 stars all teh way however as a normal gamer i will say its a little disspointing
Conclusion: at last back to were we started from nod and the gdi well driven story line with great cut seines just like command and conquer back in the 90's great single player mode for both sides but some of the levels can be a little sort at times and others impossible hard at times a great multi player mode helps to add some life to this game as well great value from play well worth getting
