Combatants better with eye-liner than battle tactics? Check. Absurd, over the top units based on deliberately cliched national stereotypes? Oh yes. A story so mad Clive Cussler might laugh and suggest it be toned-down? Damn straight. And, finally, gameplay focussed on huge, unrealistic battlefields with little respect given to realism or strategy. Yes, Red Alert 3 was a blast, and now EA are back with an expansion pack and promising to deliver even more.
