WorthPlaying: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Multiplayer Preview

WorthPlaying writes: "After all these years, it is nice to see that the Red Alert series still has its tongue firmly planted in its cheek. Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 has been eagerly awaited by fans for some time now, and though we only got a taste of the multiplayer so far, things seem to be living up to their expectations. While it makes use of a more modern interface and some control enhancements alongside its shiny new engine, underneath it all, it still has the tried-and-true gameplay that fans should expect from the series. Red Alert 3 is a game of war, only complete with Japanese schoolgirls who double as psionic warriors and war bears that maul enemy infantry.

The multiplayer we participated in contained two maps from the full game, allowing up to four players to face off against each other. There are three fully fleshed-out factions to choose from, with the Allies and the Soviets still clashing with each other as well as with the series newcomer, Empire of the Rising Sun, a Japanese faction with a taste for high tech and pop culture. Don't let their cute schoolgirl unit fool you because backing her up are probably a squad of ninjas supported by mechs who can transform into jets."
