DualShockers Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight Review

Jon Ireson of DualShockers writes, "With Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight being declared the final installation of the classic Command & Conquer series many people will be expecting this game to take the series to a whole new level. Being a cornerstone Real Time Strategy game in the league of Dune II, Warcraft, and Starcraft, the C&C series has always been revered as a source of innovation and an example of excellence for the RTS genre. For the gaming world to expect less than a masterpiece culminating the success of the series as a whole and celebrating its most prized features would be to doubt what is seen as a founding father of RTS. I'm here to tell you the truth, as all good reviewers do.

Beyond my huge expectations as a fan of the series, I was utterly shocked at a few of the major design decisions that came to bring us a Command & Conquer game with zero buildings, no resource gathering, and mandatory online play for earning higher tier units.

I AM a fan of RTS but this game just doesn't deserve to be called "C&C 4". A Spin-off at best. I also wonder how it stacks up against Supreme Commander 2 but unfortunately I'm pretty sure that game is ALSO a disappointment because they have removed the key feature of the original title which was sh$#loads of troops at once!

Games continue to dumb down.........
