Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight
6 October 2011
Conclusion: What is there to say at the end of the day? Simply saying "It's C&C" springs to mind, except it's not - they picked an interesting time to reinvent the series, that's for sure. Will it carry over into any new titles? One assumes so, but then no other setting really fits the kind of mobile warfare required of as seen in this title. It's a decent enough title, but unless you're a hardcore fan, you could easily live a happy life having not played this game.
Excerpt: As old as the RTS genre itself, the Command & Conquer series is about to bring its long running Tiberium Saga to a close with its fourth installment, Tiberian Twilight. Featuring a number of sweeping gameplay tweaks, number four moves the series in a direction that many fans of the franchise would not expect. The end result is far from traditional, but does it do its lineage right?
Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight - PC - Review

Excerpt: Command & Conquer has long been a staple of the RTS genre. From the groundbreaking original to the highly successful Red Alert spin-off franchise, the series has long been one of the most recognizable names in the strategy genre. Unfortunately, you can’t get that kind of longevity without having some staleness set in, and that seemed to be happening in the Command & Conquer series.
Summary: Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight sells itself as the end of Kain and--potentially--humanity. It's something of a reinvention for the series, but is this a going away party worth RSVP'ing for?
Pros: New gameplay dynamics level the playing field for newbs and veterans, Extensive multiplayer (competitive & co-op) adds plenty of replay, Stellar graphics and musical score
Cons: Gameplay tweaks will annoy series purists, Respawning in an RTS just feels wrong
Summary: There's a good chance that Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight is not what you were expecting. This real-time tactical game shares some attributes with the Tiberium-fueled strategy games that came before it--flashy graphical effects, GDI and Nod forces pummeling each other, and a scowling antihero with a stare so intense his eyes pierce your soul.
Pros: Persistent unlocks provide a nice sense of ongoing reward, Enjoyable online and skirmish play, Excellent soundtrack and darkly lit cutscenes make for great atmosphere
Cons: Short, limp campaign that concludes with a thud, You always have to be connected to the Internet, even in offline modes, Limited scope, limited excitement
Excerpt: One of the founding fathers of real-time strategy games arrives on the PC with EA’s latest furore action title, Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight . Returning gamers to this popular yet over the top universe, the GDI (Global Defence Initiative) and the Brotherhood of Nod are still at each other’s throats that would have probably destroyed Earth ten times over from the vicious battling over the years.
