OXM UK: Command & Conquer: Red Alert Review

OXM UK writes: "You can't fault EA's marketing bods. They know exactly what's exciting about Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3. That's why every trailer has had sod all in the way of game footage and lots of a shouting Tim Curry at his ridiculous, eye-bulging best.

Part of a spin-off series, RA3 ditches C&C 3's drab sci-fi in favour of a bold, colourful art style and, best of all, intentionally ludicrous cutscene acting - there's more ham flying about than a food fight at a Bernard Matthews factory.

Mechanically, RA3 is based on the formula that's kept C&C popular for over a decade. Build a base, set up resource gathering and then start churning out your units for battle - standard-ish soldiers for the Allied Forces, robots for the Empire of the Rising Sun and, bizarrely, even parachuting War Bears for the Soviets."

The story is too old to be commented.
