Earlier this week, Electronic Arts launched the site for a new Command & Conquer game before promptly taking it down a few hours later. Thankfully, the site is now back up with all the info and details posted last time.
Well the last one sucked so hopefully they've learned from their mistakes.
It didn't suck, but it was not exactly what I was expecting, either. You will notice that the team working on the last installment, seemed to take a page from Petroglyph's playbook with Universe at War: Earth Assault, which is interesting, considering many people who were part of Westwood, before EA shut it down, left to form that same company. The truth is, sometimes it takes the key players to make a game shine. Why screw over a developer and abuse their creation? Seems like a waste of good material and opportunity. But, that's business. It will be interesting to see if they try and take the franchise in a completely new direction or if they stick to the same formula. I think I'm okay with both... though some might disagree. I don't have the original box for my C&C game... I wish I did, as boxes were cooler than.
CnC4 did suck. It sucked so bad that CnC3, and older game, cost more to buy because the demand is still higher than that of CnC4. When the new head of the department took over after everyone got the axe that was involved with CnC4 he made a statement that he would produce a game that long time fans of the series could be proud of. So hopefully that means it is going back to its roots. That being said - I would be happy with Generals 2!
I just don't think it sucked. But, I also didn't think it was up to the same standard I was hoping for and got use to with the previous titles. Generals was cool... Red Alert would be cool too again too. You know, they always say stuff like that.. that long time fans could be proud of... not many end up fulfilling that promise. But, let's hope they do.
A re-boot of the first Red Alert would be AWESOME!
I would be more than happy if they did a remake of the first C&C game as long as they don't screw it up.
Oh I hope it's a new Command and Conquer Generals!!!
I like Generals!
Generals 2 FTW!!!
