While you wait for Command and Conquer 4's release, why not play a previous game in the series for no charge? Today EA released Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun and its expansion Firestorm as freeware.
That's pretty cool of EA.
Cool...hope the online works for it.
OMG, I was just talking about Tiberian Sun the other day, definitely gonna download this!!!
I hate .rar
Because I hate installing softwere for one time use. I reinstall Vista allmost everytime I past 10 programs. I just do.
I've been using 7-zip instead of WinRAR for a long time now. Unlike WinRAR, this one is free.
I hate installing third parties software when there is one perfectly working called zip! With that said, there is the open source and free 7-zip which works pretty well.
interesting... why would you go through all that trouble
They are giving these good games away so that when you finally play CnC4 you will realize what a kick to the balls they just gave you as a fan of the series and how badly they have ruined the game.
I wouldn't say Tiberian Sun was their best work by a long shot.
Tiberian sun is still pretty good though....Red alert 2 is my personal fave i think.
No, it was not their best work. But it is still hella better than the crap they are gonna give us next month. I guess if I knew I was going to be laid off then I would probably crap out on my last project as well. They should not have told the team they were shutting them down until AFTER they had completed their last project.
true. i appreciate the series needed a bit of a 'reboot' but the new game isn't c&c, but it isn't even fun imo. it seems the only tactic is deploy ur bases around abjectives and pump out as many units as possible
The days where the command and conquer series was actually good. I played red alert 3 but didnt like it very much.
Dude, have you actually played any of the games WestWood made since leaving and making Petroglyph? THEY SUCK! But they did do good with their limited time in the CnC franchise.
"their limited time with the CnC franchise"? You mean, from Command and Conquer Tiberian Dawn to Command and Conquer Renegade, which includes the likes of Red Alert and Red Alert 2? The day Westwood closed to become EA Pacific, the Command and Conquer franchise died. With Generals, they removed everything that made the CnC franchise and replaced it with StarCraft-like gameplay set in the modern era. Gone were the cutscenes, the sidebar and well pretty much everything else. Since then, they only try to go back to what made CnC great in the first place, bringing back KAne, the Kirovs, and the likes. Red Alert 3 was a joke compared to Red Alert 2 and the Uprising pack was just plain bad. I'll buy CnC4 to see the ending of what used to be one of my favorite franchise, but I'm just glad they say it's the ending, as I hope they end the slow and painful death CnC has been suffering in the last years.
Sorry for doing this but there is 3 Command and Conquer games on the PSN all of them are £4 but on PC you can get them Free off EA official site Now they have expanded the love by releasing the newer games for free and when you pre-purchased C&C RA3 you got C&C RA2 Free. PC - it only does everything PC - it only is the most affordable
It downloaded fast with a download manager and installed fast, im doing the tiberian sun one and its pretty fun i like Red alert 2 as my best command & conquer game Agleed.
these are the games that made c&c amazing, the best in the series was ra2. did any one else like renegade i think that is such a good shooter much better than the crap there making now.
