Product Details:

The critically-acclaimed Command & Conquer series returns with Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars. This highly-anticipated next chapter takes the popular series back to its roots in the Tiberium Universe and features the fast, fluid gameplay that Command & Conquer is known for and an epic story that will redefine storytelling and set the standard for the single player experience for Real-time Strategy (RTS) games.

It is 2047 and the stakes could not be higher. Tiberium - a self-replicating alien substance that has infected the Earth - is spreading like a radioactive ice age. The Global Defense Initiative, a high-tech alliance of the world's most advanced nations, is fighting to contain Tiberium, but Kane, the megalomaniacal leader of The Brotherhood of Nod has other plans for Earth. Kane's secret society turned superpower is bent on using Tiberium to take control and transform humanity into his twisted vision of the future. All-out war rages over Tiberium and the fate of the planet rests in the balance.

The epic story of Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars is seamlessly tied together with live action, high-definition video sequences featuring top Hollywood talent including Tricia Helfer, Josh Holloway, Michael Ironside, Billy Dee Williams, Grace Park, and more.

Control massive armies and wage war as one of as one of three rival factions in Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars. Embark on an adrenaline-fueled single player campaign that features explosive 3D special effects, an unparalleled Hollywood cast, and over 90 minutes of live-action video sequences. Then, head onto Xbox Live for devastating multiplayer battles with five exclusive modes and Xbox Vision Camera support. You alone can decide the fate of the planet in the epic war over Tiberium. Welcome back, Commander.

GameStop Interview:

What's your favorite scene or line from any of the previous Command & Conquer games that you've been involved with?
There's a scene in the first Red Alert 2 where Kari Wuhrer stares into the camera, smiles seductively and then just jumps up and down for a full 5 and a half minutes. In her tank top. I thought that scene really went a long way in laying the foundation for the character of "Special Agent Tanya." Unfortunately, we had to cut it at the last minute due to a shortage of disk space. And threats from the ESRB, who are frankly really starting to piss me off.

Has playing the role of Kane for so many years impacted your daily life?
Why yes, Gary, yes it has. I haven't paid for a cocktail or a dinner or admission into a club for that past 15 years. And last November, when I went in for the pec implants, the doctor was a big C&C fan and did it for ¼ of his usual fee (he also tattooed a Nod scorpion under my left nipple, but that's another story...). I can't walk down the street without being mobbed by screaming 19 year old swimsuit models, unless I'm wearing my Burkha.

Are you receiving any kinds of feedback from the fans on your return?
Oh sure, I get a hundred or so emails a day. I'm sitting in front of my inbox right now as a matter of fact; let me read you some of the subject lines: "Please stop." I think that one's from Tricia Helfer. "Seriously dude: you suck." I'll bet that one's about my unyielding support for President George W. Bush.

What is it about Command & Conquer that makes it such a popular franchise for so many years?
Perhaps it's a little ego-maniacal, but I truly like to think that that a lot of thegame's lasting popularity has to do with the FMV. I really believed back when we were playing with the ideas that would culminate with the first Command&Conquer that this was a whole new way of telling story, a whole new way of connecting to a whole new generation of audience in a whole new genre. There's something to be said for having a pair of human eyes staring out at you from a monitor, challenging you to complete a task, taunting you toward failure, pleading with you for help - there's a personal connection there that's very hard to recreate with CG. To this day I have so many people tell me that I'm the reason they failed their PoliSci midterms or had to get divorced or whatever; they stayed up way too late trying to wipe that smug smirk off of my face! Sure, CG has come a long way: it's easy to create texture, motion, mass - very realistic looking characters. But at the end of day, these are still just golems; I still believe it takes a human being to really connect with a gamer on a human level.

How do you think C&C 3 is going to do? Do you think it will live up to its legacy and be a huge hit?
I think it's going to be a huge hit because a lot of people are going to buy it. Which they should, because it's going to be a huge hit. It's a very smart game put together by a very smart group of people who really respect the history of Command&Conquer andthe epic mythology of the C&C universe. It's exciting to see the pride and enthusiasm on the faces of everyone involved and I'm truly glad to be able to make my small contribution. AndIthink in the year 2025, when they start handing out Nobel Prizes for Computer Games, Mike Verdu will make a very nice speech as he accepts my portion of the Special Lifetime Achievement Award on my behalf. I plan to have been eaten by hyenas by 2019.

If you could cast any actors for a C&C game, who would be on your dream team?
I think EA has pretty much found their dream team right now in C&C 3. I mean, come on - Tricia Helfer?! Grace Park?! Billy Dee Williams?! My brother Daniel?! You can't beat that line-up with a stick! In fact, I can't even imagine how they could possibly do any better in the future! They'll probably just throw in the towel and use robots. Everybody loves robots.

Finally, how did you get the role of Kane?
Back in 1995, I was going through a bunch of boxes in my grandfather's attic. I found the role of Kane in an old spittoon buried deep under a pile of National Geographics from the 50's. I dusted it off, tried it on; it fit like a glove! My brother Michael saw me with it and tried to wrestle it away from me. But the secret to fighting Mike: go to the body. I subdued him with a flurry of kidney punches and actually cracked a couple of his ribs. Then I ran off and hid under the porch with Rufus, our old hound-dog. Mike was a'skeered of goin' under the porch on account a' the possums. The role of Kane was mine, dammit, and I weren't givin' it up fer nobody!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better Than Halo Wars The title is the best thing I can say about this game being on the Xbox, it runs sooooo much better on PC. It's very difficult to play RTS games on console, the controls are sloppy and it's hard to see what's really going on. The games are a solid 8/10 on PC but here... I think I'm overrating with the 6.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Console controls don't do it justice. First of all i love CNC, especially the Tiberium story. I've logged well over 300 hours in this game... on pc. The xbox controls slow you down far too much. On pc i can have a fully operational base with max defenses and 200 max tier units within 30 minutes. on xbox controls it takes well over 3 hours to create the same. As far as online play goes, your opponents will be just as slow, so it balances out, but i prefer it being about who can be smarter in a short amount of time, now who can choose the right units with plenty of time to think about it. With that said, cnc tw3 is my fav tiberium game. the 4th one sucks, and 1 n 2 are just prehistoric. I love games like this where there is no cap on units. If your xbox can handle it, go ahead and make 100000 units. The graphics are still some of the better graphics for RTS games, in that you can zoom in to look at each soldier and they still look half decent. Most RTS games you zoom into that level and it looks like a stick figure with meat on it. no camo, no real texturing, no gear such as vests, ammo pouches, etc, and the gun typically looks like a stick itself. they even have idle animations such as doing pushups, holding their gun over their heads, etc. And that's just the soldiers. this game has mechs, aircraft, etc etc. I highly recommend tring the free demo on XBl marketplace before buying, that gives you a solid taste of how the controls are, and what the game is about. The story itself is ok, not great but ok. However considering that it's an RTS and that they generally have no story, i say that demands to be said that the story is better then most games in it's genre. Game mechanics are very solid, but the controls are annoying. On the computure you can have a squad assigned to one key. so no matter what menu you have open, or where you are on the map, you double tap that key and it takes you to that squad ready to recieve your command. On console it has a similar feature, but to get to said button you have to go through far too many menus. Just highlighting units is annoying. On pc you can do "select all units on entire map" or "select all military units" or "select all of one specific type of unit" etc. on console you cant. if you have 10 soldiers, 10 mechs, and 10 aircraft. on pc you click one soldier, press a button and you have all ten selected. same with mechs and or aircraft. to do that on console, you have to click them individually, move them to an area where it's just them, THEN you can highlight the group. otherwise highlighting them in your base might highlight any others in the area including worker units, units already assigned to another group, etc. It's frustrating. All in all i recommend CNCTW3 to any rts player, but i HIGHLY recommend you go pc with it. Also if you enjoy the game, be sure to get the expansion pack kanes wrath. has a fair amount of added goodies, and an interesting story to continue through.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ONe of my fav's One of my Favorite games to play back in the old days was the first "Red Alert" game for the PC, one of the first PC games that i own and got hook on following by StarCraft when it first came out. I love the story's from the Command & Conquer: 2 to Command and conquer: Tiberium sun. I love this game because i love sci-fi and that you get to play a alien race. One of the best things is that you get to build as many unites that you can until your computer blows up lol but now with the new computers you can. I did not have a great computer back in the day and ill lag if i get up to 500 units with everything blowing up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uh... yeah. This game never loses its fun factor. Even if you complete the REALLY long campaign there's still new battles to be had in skirmish mode. The controls are very well laid out. I enjoy this game very much and even though its not by Westwood Studios I still think it's one of the best C&C games of all time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but better for pc i origanally played this for pc and loved it so i decided to get it for 360. there really isnt much of a diference. But with any game like this, its always better for pc. so if you have a good pc get it for that if you dont its still good on 360. gameplay is really fun, graphics are not bad at all, and it gives you alot of options and freedoms. one thing that i love about the camand and conquer games is the real video cincmatics. i dont know why but i love that and i think that it is one of the best features. but overall i love this game and i would defibatly recomend it to anyone who is a gamer. if your not a gamer than you might find it difficult or not fun.
