I have always been a fan of the Command & conquer (CnC) series, from the original game, right through Red Alert I, Retaliation, and the rest. This game is no exception to the rules here. There have been times (usually weekends) when I have spent nearly an entire 24 hours commanding troops and generally wiping out my enemies (dreaming that they were people that I didn’t like). For those who really enjoy ‘God’ games and have not had the pleasure of playing any of the CnC games I will begin totally from scratch. Story Basically it is just a mock Cold War. The Soviets (from the first Red Alert) have been defeated, but as time passes by, ... Read the complete review

I’ve been a great fan of the command & conquer series of games and have every one. Naturally, when I heard about Red Alert 2, I raced off to get it. For those of you who’ve been residing on another planet for last few years, Red Alert 2 is basically a real-time strategy game. You build up your base, train men, build tanks and by use of clever tactics and/or brute force, manoeuvre your army or armies to destroy the enemy. Common to all command & conquer games is the need to harvest ‘ore’ to get credits. Anyway… After Tiberian Sun, I was expecting lots of new & bigger maps, lots of new and many more weapons & ...

It’s hard to think that it was five years ago when original Command & Conquer was released and became the king of all PC games. Was it the originality and excitement of a real-time strategy game? Or was it the prospect of building thousands of tanks and kicking the sh*t out of anything which moved. We just don’t know. These days, unfortunately, a real-time strategy isn’t exactly original. Every other game released seems to be one, but most of them are merely very poor clones. The Command & Conquer series has, however, always provided us with good quality additions. After Command & Conquer there came Command & Conquer: Red Alert, then 3 years ... Read the complete review

The Command and Conquer franchise is a vast one, but probably the very best of the bunch is Red Alert 2, a thrilling installment that builds on the numerous entries before it, and has a nice wink and nudge with the knowingly cheesy cut-scenes that introduce all the missions. This is an RTS that is accessible to people who wouldn't usually play the genre, but also has enough crazy weaponry and technology to please fans of the series. Although there are two discs, so you can play as both the Allies and the Soviets, the canonical story involves the Soviet Union invading the USA and somehow ridiculously catching them by surprise. The game is also rather notorious ... Read the complete review

Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 is a very loud and colourful strategy game with a strong emphasis on fast, fun gameplay. As in its predecessor the game revolves around a war between the Allies and the Soviets, with each side having its own unique range of units and structures. The familiar C&C formula remains, requiring you to harvest and refine ore in order to build units, barracks, factories, radar facilities, base defences and so on, but the maps are a lot more varied this time round, including jungles, frozen wastelands, and best of all cityscapes, which provide tactical opportunities as you can now garrison your troops in all manner of buildings, including ...
