  1.  Awful RTS game compared to rivals such as DOW & LOTR


    In a word "poor". I am a big fan of RTS games and spend my gaming time switching between these, Football Manager and racing games on the XBOX 360 so I'm quite picky about what games get my limited time and along with many I was eagerly awaiting the release of C&C 3 as I had recently been enjoying playing DOW and LOTR but once I bought and loaded this I couldn't believe how poor it is. The graphics are blurry and the speed of the game is very slow. The whole gameplay system is not user friendly and I think that the developers have spent more time recruiting famous actors for the cut scenes than testing the gameplay. This game is living off the C&C franchise name and will probably do well enough from that alone but if this was the first C&C game there wouldn't be so much hype for future releases. A very boring and slow game.

  2.  Superbly playable with fantastic graphics - Quality RTS Game


    I used to play Warhammer games in my youth and as I am now thirty I bought this game more out of nostalgia than anything else but this is probably the best RTS game I have played along with LOTR - Battle for middle earth. The single player campaign has incredible depth along with excellent playability and what this game adds to the previous two DOW games is "replayability" as once you have completed the campaign with your first race you have six more races to use and they are each different enough to keep interest. There is also a good on-line forum to play against other gamers. In summary this is an all round superb game and the only draw back is that it's so addictive you might end up in trouble with the missus!
