Red Alert 3 is a well made, excellent command and conquer style game. It's Graphics are excellent for something that has come all this way. Just look back at Red Alert 2 and the original. This type of game is for people that do not look for perfection but a good game to keep you busy and keep you drawn in. first of all the bad-@$$ intro with the classic h3ll march along with the intro and invasion scene. Also whats up with all the hot chicks? is that how they make sure you stay over the top interested in the game? That truly is a smart tactic. Especially for people that strongly critisize what a game is based on. Also They should try to keep the gameplay graphics somewhere close to the trailer and intro graphic experience. three things i reall like about the graphics. 1: They did an excellent job on fire and large explosions. 2: Water is suprisingly very good with the waves and ripples. 3: even with a not so good computer, the graphics range is great for enthusiasts or just gamers that like the game soley because its command and conquer. Keep it going Red Alert, your next game should look even better

Amazing Game
rated 4.0 out of 5

This is a great game for one and all to love. First off the AI is actually pretty good, well unless if your playing on easy. Also in the campagin you get a 2nd AI (or another player if your doing the campagin in Co-Op online) commander to help you. This works pretty well as you have basic control over them (go here, attack here, defend here, etc.). What I personally didnt like about it is you can just have them pump out 50 Gaurdian Tanks and send them in the enemy base and win fairly quickly, but this is helpful to new players to the genre and to Command & Conquer games themselves. Now for the Challenge, I personally am not new to Strategy games and the Red Alert series so I had little to no trouble on medium settings. But once I got to higher levels of difficulty I enjoyed the challenge that the AI brought, as well as you 2nd Commander relying on you for help. Graphics are unique in that they didnt want realism they wanted it to look cartoonish, and it allowed for some of the funnier looking vehicles to look cool. Also as in all C&C games you have actors/actresses telling you your objectives and what not. I personally enjoy these cutscenes, because they add some variety to the game. The Interface is pretty decent, if you've played other C&C or Red Alert games you should feel close to home. There are some changes like the Command Point system. Which I didnt even realise was there for a while, because it hasnt been in other C&C games that I can remember. The Sound is pretty decent to men dying, bombs droping, and vehicles exploding. Some Russians go back in time, one shakes the hand of Albert Einstien and he disinergrates. They come back to find that there is no such things as nuclear weapons anymore, the Allies are being defeated by the Soviet Union, and The Empire of the Rising Sun is starting a full out attack. A little cliche I know, but hey it tried its best. All in all get this game. 8 out of 10

Command And Conquer: Red Alert 3 is my favorite C&C game yet. I will now describe the ratings i gave this game. AI: 8: the opponent used pretty good tactics to try and defeat me, such as bombarding me from just out of range and going around my defenses. Challenge:10 The campaign was difficult but not too hard and you had to use strategy to win, not just brute force which makes to easy. Graphics:10 The Graphics are amazing on high detail, Although if your computer isn't very good then you may need to turn the graphics to low in which they are pretty bad. Interface 7: The menus were easy to navigate and the in game controls are easy. But building a base is fairly complicated, although that just adds to the strategy. Sound 10: The music is pretty cool and catchy. The units say a lot of funny things, For example one unit calls in an artillery satellite to bombard the enemy sometimes says "Your call is very important to us" or "Please Hold" Storyline 8: The story line was good and cool. But it was still a bit odd. This concludes my review of Command And Conquer: Red Alert 3

Corny but fun
rated 4.0 out of 5

I know Red Alert is known for it's "silly" videos, but sometimes they just go so far over the top, I can't stand to watch some of the videos. Sometimes I am surprised that certain Actors agree to do some of this stuff, but I guess desperate times call for desperate measures. Aside from the corny videos, the big difference between this and C&C3 and its expansion is the pace. RA3 is VERY fast paced. If you think you are a pro at C&C games, load up a skirmish on medium. Right off the bat, the AI "scouts" and tries to find your weakest point. If it's getting overwhelmed, it'll pull back. And battles are short. Even the strongest units dont last long. I'm not saying this is good or bad, but if you like the slow build up your base approach, you are about to get pissed off. I don't even know why the option to build walls is in the game. Graphics seemed pretty top notch. There is definitely a more "cartoon" look to it. I thought c&c3 and kanes wrath looked better, yet in RA3 I could not top everything out like I could in c&c3. Nothing big really. The story.... Is just silly. I'm sorry, but there's only so much I can take. (SPOILER) I haven't gotten in to the Empire campaign yet, but I'm going to assume that at some point like in the soviet and allied, you will have to take down your leader after being his right hand man through several missions. I would say the coolest thing about the campaign missions was the option to do the missions co op. Unfortunately, I did not have the patience to try it out. While there were people in Lobby rooms and chat rooms, it took far too long to get someone to join. So I played each mission with the computer AI, which I have to admit is pretty kick ass. The ability to order you're ally to "plan" an attack or strike a target is actually pretty well executed. I usually just tell him/her(each computer ally has some sort of 3rd rate actor to play as) to "take position" which works pretty well. All in all, it's not a terrible game, but it's not going to shatter anyones expectations. The computer AI does offer quite a challenge.

I must say overall the game played very well, this being after I ordered the game from the digital download only to find that the download is broken and wont give me my money back. I drove 30 miles to the nearest store that had a copy just to try it out. The AI was good in the game only rarely did it ignore me and just go after the computer assistance. Graphics are top notch on this game and really flow well I don't think you will be disappointed. Storyline was good if that is what you like mixed into the game heavily, I could go without it but a lot of thought was put into it so it turned out well. To end I warn anyone strongly of the digital download of this game. The secondary company used is not helpful and still offered the product for download even though they knew it was broken and didn't even take the time to inform you before purchase that you would have to wait 3 days in order to play the game you bought. Not only that but I personally spent 9 hours downloading the game to find out its broken and not just in one way. The answer given to me was sorry you can download it on Tuesday have a good day. If that is customer support then I'm set back. I must say if this doesn't get resolved I most likely will not use gamestop again for ordering games.

Q:
Do you have to play command and conquer 3 on line?
rishultz3 years ago
A:
No. You can play with yourself or network with a friend. Although you can use a co-commander like if you were playing with someone. I like using cheat engine to build massive armies. The enemy doesn't stand a chance. Unless you play 1 on 1 with the computer in versus mode. The cpu actually adapts to your style. No matter what mode you have it on, it learns and eventually becomes ruthless. :)
