          OK, so the storyline is pretty short, the sexy FMV girls of the past have been replaced by Michael Ironside, Lando and some guy with a mullet, but the gameplay is as good as ever, and the graphics are better than ever. One gripe is that the multiplayer registration can fail if you have to reinstall the game on your machine.

          Like alot of others I loved the C&C series and after playing dozens of strategy games I still remember them fondly. With all of the capture this location and rushing games out all I ever wanted was a simple, fun game like C&C, and this was it. This is pretty much what I thought I wanted in a game, until I realised that I liked having things to do, and just spamming units at another base isnt that fun anymore. Maybe this is evidence that maybe developers shouldnt always listen to what a community says it wants.

          I recently bought Supreme Commander and have been having great fun multiplayer with my bro, it was fun, franctic and never got boring (well maybe after 3 hours :) ). We tried C&C and I found this dull in comparison, there is just so little to do, and tactics dont appear do be necessary. Maybe some things should be left in the past (Phantom Menace anyone ;) )

          Conclusion
          By all means try this game, but be warned you may have grown beyond your simple needs of the past. On the upside though it is quite pretty :)

           Loved it!!!

          Bought the game, played the game and loved the game!!!

          Being a C&C fan form the early years it's hard to not be biased but to me this game was great fun!!!

          Both NOD and GDI campaigns are good with the characters being played by some recognisable actors I.e. Sawyer from lost.

          The campaigns itself are great to play although the story line is where the game lacks a bit as it is very simple and at times confusing. But saying that you are never short of the cheesy lines and great action clips that only C&C can deliver.

          The units and structures are great and with the return of the much missed NOD Obelisk tower and a few of the old units brought back such as the GDI Mammoth tank combined with all the new units definitely makes this an exciting game to play.

          Base building is a bit more challenging now as you are restricted to where you can build. This is unless you buy additional units to expand your base.

          Although this game has mixed opinions all in all I thought it was a great game and one that will keep you entertained for hours.

          Bring on the expansion pack!!!

          A must buy!!!

          Graphics 9/10
          Sound 9/10
          Game play 10/10

          Overall 9/10

           A solid RTS

          The command and conquer series has always produced great games although some disliked the recent deviation from the classic C&C style that Generals took, to counter this C&C3 takes things back to the classic C&C formula that made the series such a success.

          While there have been a few changes such as a new control scheme and interface (although it is a classic C&C sidebar layout) most things have returned such as the cheesy(but always great) videos between missions and of course the tiberium universe, familiar tactics are back such as the infamous tank rush and resource harassment however after a short time of play you will find ways to counter such tactics.

          The single player campaign mode is possibly the weakest part of this game, the missions are the typical "destroy this" type of missions with little deviation however the multi-player is as always where this C&C shines, allowing for great development of tactics the longer you play can make for a satisfying game experience to outwit an opponent online, the game sports some new features to aid in the formulation of new tactics such as directional armour(vehicles have more armour on the front than the sides), reverse move (to prevent your units showing their vulnerable sides) and stances (such as aggressive and defensive) while these may seem to be small additions they can drastically change the balance of a battle when you play an opponent that ignores these features.

          The game looks great for an RTS and runs well, I have tried this game on a few systems and it appears that it can scale to system performance well, once maxed out you can see the shining glints of light reflecting from tanks and beams of light break through the clouds and watching an airborne attack fly over the water is nice indeed.

          The competitive aspect of game play depends heavily on how you play the game, there are 3 sides to choose from, the GDI: heavy but slow tanks that can cause large amounts of damage have support powers to mainly summon reinforcements to any known area of the map, allowing for you to call an attack force next to the enemy base while you send in a dummy attack from the front to draw troops, NOD: the underhanded faction that benefits from stealth and quick attacks to keep the enemy off balance have support powers that mostly encourage this type of play with abilities to cloak units for example and the scrin faction: the aliens that work well in groups with units that can be combined for extra effect are also best at collecting resources allowing for large armies, the 3 factions units play differently to one another however their main buildings are pretty much the same thing with a different skin, each needs a barracks, war factory, ore refinery and tech buildings even the same amount each the super weapons also cause comparable damage across the 3 factions, speaking of super weapons these devices such as the nuclear missile are a way of causing your enemy to leave their base and attack, however for the most part this game discourages players that play too defensively by providing tech buildings that are extremely beneficial to capture as an incentive to leave a bass and rather weak defensive structures.

          when the game was first released it was horridly buggy, with frequent crashes and disconnects from online games and the game was also unbalanced, certain units too expensive and others not even worth buying, however now at patch 1.6 currently the bugs have been corrected and the game balanced, this game works well on XP and both Vista 32 bit and 64 (home premium and ultimate) and with an x1950 pro (just 256MB) and an E6700(2.67Ghz) this game runs perfectly on maximum graphics.

           Disappointing

          First impressions are good with c&c3 but once you get into the guts of the game it is decidedly average. There is nothing innovative to it and RTS has been done so much better.
          In short it's a game that could keep you playing for a few hours just to see what the next film sequence throws up but not a lot more than that.
