Red Alert 3 keeps getting better as you play. Developing strategies in competitive skirmishes is addictive, and being able to play with friends makes for great RTS-ing in the competitive online mode or two-player co-op campaign. And with an ace control scheme that should become the console standard, Red Alert 3 is easily the most kickass strategy game this side of Civilization Revolution. But hey - Civ doesn't have ninjas and bear paratroopers…
* Fast, strategic fun; co-op campaign; smart A.I. is a rewarding challenge.
* Trio of stupid, self-aware stories; groovy visuals and killer tunes
* Some missions are really tough.
* RA3 has a save-anywhere feature! Why doesn't everything else?
