It's a quality game, that can't be denied. Play it with a mate and it's a lot of fun. The live action clips are so bad you can't not want to watch them, and the whole experience has that addictive quality that makes you want to play it when you're not, but it's a hugely conservative effort. The co-operative campaign is a nice addition, but VideoGamer has been playing RTS games with friends on the same side for years in skirmishes, so this is more evolution than revolution. They were hoping for some genuine innovation with Red Alert 3. Perhaps, given the genre, this was an unreasonable hope. This is one for the series' army of fans.
