While some might argue, most would agree that the Command & Conquer series gave birth to the modern real-time strategy title. One of the spin-offs from the core series, Red Alert, has become so popular over the years that it is as, if not more popular than the franchise it came from, with a tongue in cheek approach to the Cold War and alternate history. Known for silly cinematics and frantic, polished gameplay, the series has grown over time, seeing spin-offs land on many different consoles. Sadly, almost all have been mediocre, failing to perform on the same level as the PC iterations. With the recent release of Command & Conquer Red Alert, EA has moved the series onto the popular iPhone format, taking advantage of the touch-screen input and powerful processor to hopefully render these complaints moot.
