Didn't Like Yuri's Revenge? I think it's the BEST RTS, EVER.
You clearly don't know anything about game balance do you?
Yuri is overpowered to fuck.
My opinions on each game:
C&C was good fun and original the covert ops added some big challenges a great start for a new series.
RA1: One of my favourites, worked out all the bugs and problems with the original, and gave a much needed speed up on the gameplay, although the expansion was only really difficult because of the constant nuke spam on half of the levels, You also get to fight Giant Ants.
Tiberium Sun: would've been a gift from god, if EA didn't buy Westwood and force them to rush the release, which was terribly imbalanced, and by the time the expansion was out, most of the fans were gone or simply didn't buy it.
Renegade: Although FPS isn't what C&C was about, multiplayer was quite fun, especially when there are 5+ tanks on each beating the living shit out of each other.
RA2: good game, but it started to show the end of the series; Yuri's revenge almost instantly switched my liking of the game to pure boredom and anger due to the grave imbalance they somehow never noticed.
Generals: I didn't like this one, at all mostly because Westwood was either fired or placed into EA's strategy game section (I think it was EA-LA), a completely pointless story, and a completely different game, no sidebar and once again, imbalanced, then came Zero Hour, to me, that marked the end of the fun in the game
C&C3 (no expansion): I plain hated it, only thing that I could see that has improved is the graphics, and partially the gameplay, multiplayer was also terrible, only 3-4 units used in any game, and I had yet to see a decent counter to massing Mammoth Tanks.
Sorry everybody, but to me, the series is over, if EA didn't buy the company just to milk another cash cow, I would've easily stayed, and the series could easily match up to better ones like StarCraft.
Also, for anybody who didn't know, most of Westwood has left EA now, and made a new company called PetroGlyph.
