Well... I like the older games of the series better.
I just want Red Alert to get it's online function back, when Red Alert 3 will come out.
And of course - the moding of Tiberian sun - easiest than any other game, ever. Yet, the results are much better!

I was a fan of the series till after Yuris Revenge, as that was when mostly the games started to get rubbish. The Red alert universe has got to be the best, as whats wrong with destroying boats with giant squids, or trying to beat the giant ant missions...

Yeah, C&C is just beastly overall.

Anybody here gonna beta test RA3; i am

We all know C&C rocked but i gotta say that the original command and conquer saga is the best. Generals is too short lived, and RA was supposed to be a precursor to Tiberium, but it spins off into its own series and well, gets pretty redundant and non-serious [in RA3 you get freaking bears to paradrop and attack enemies (so ive heard), fun but not realistic,] China is involved too, so at least they're up to par with the 3 faction status quo though.

The Tiberium Saga keeps moving forward full steam, with each event more and more in depth than the last. Cant wait for 4. i'm looking forward to see where Nod goes in the universe, if GDI gets demolished by the Scrin, and if the Scrin even come back through the last tower in Italy. Where will they go? Only Kane knows

Me too!

You mean Japan, and what's up with that 3 faction limit anyway?

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.

You should stick with PC, it will always be better, unless your computer can't handle it.

Nod's specialty is raiding.
They come, destroy lots of stuff, and go, recharge, come back, finish it off.

Hadn't all the servers shut down after Westwood closed down?
Or is EA still keeping them up?

yeah maybe you just cant play them for shit, your not suposed to go head on like with GDI, your supposed to weaken them with stealth then move in with High Tier units.

I played Renegade for awhile on GameSpot but there seemed to be one guy there who had a monopoly on the servers. Naturally I was a good sniper so they accused me of cheating a lot and I was often spending my time appealing bans on his little forum.

The game is dead now, I don't think anybody really uses it but it was an awesome game. If you ask me, the demo was the best online play, the other levels sort of sucked.

C&C was awesome when Westwood still owned it. But I still love them. Got a trial code from Kane's Wrath when I bought it for Red Alert, should really register with it soon =P. Looking forward to it.

Tiberium Sun would have to be the game out of the series with the most hours put in from me, most of which were online back in the days when it was active. Some of those mod maps with extreme amounts of money and base walls took forever. NOD with their stealth and artilleray had a clear advantage if they weren't stomped quickly.

I've been playing C&C since the first release though. Never eneded up buying the original Red Alert but I borrowed it from the video store that many times and played it at a mates house. I did however get RA: Retaliation which was pretty sweet. I also have all of the other titles, but not their expansions except for Firestorm.

Looking forward to RA3, the bears look like an addition awesome considering that Stalin experimented with a lot of that sort of stuff.

You have to run it as the administrator.
It's forcing the program to run, it's saying "I AM THE OWNER OF THIS COMPUTER, YOU WILL DO AS I COMMAND, NO MATTER WHAT MY COMPUTER IS!"

Or you can get the Ps1 port, I think there is somebody working on PSP port too.
