Red Alert 3 was a bold effort on EA's part but overall the experience is lacking. EA missed the point of the Red Alert series. This game takes things that are unique to the Red Alert series (Naval combat, cheesiness), and exaggerates them way too much. They seemed to miss the point that, while the unique things about Red Alert certainly are nice features, they aren't the MAIN appeal of the games. Red Alert 3 makes GPM think that the developers didn't notice this, and exaggerated those things thinking that they were giving the fans what they wanted, but in fact ended up doing to opposite.
