Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars hits the sweet spot in real-time strategy games, somehow making it fun to micromanage your resources, buildings, and troops.

Of course it wouldn’t be a C&C without the flashy FMV (there’s an acronym I haven’t used in forever), and it certainly helps that EA went for broke by employing folks like Trica Helfer and Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica), Josh Holloway (Lost), and Michael Ironside (the voice of Sam Fisher in the Splinter Cell games). And FMV never looked better, as in plenty of DVDs play half as crisp. Sure, the story’s on par with something you’d throw rice at in a theater, but that’s what this series is all about, after all: one crazy, explosive, silly, gorgeous, over-the-top moment after another.

"Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars" pode não ser tão inovador quanto "Supreme Commander" ou "Company of Heroes", mas é uma grande continuação para uma das séries de estratégia em tempo real mais apaixonantes de todos os tempos. Com gráficos robustos, clima de superprodução hollywoodiana e recursos interessantes para a interface e inteligência artificial, a diversão é garantida. O multiplayer otimizado para competições garante a vida útil do jogo por um longo tempo.

With the release of Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars (C&C 3) on the PC, fans will be treated to a, well, reunion of sorts. Set in the familiar Tiberium universe, C&C 3 hosts battles between the Nod and the GDI and the new alien faction, the Scrin. But a word of warning to the C&C faithful: Tiberium Wars isn't new in its gameplay. This is the same C&C genre-specific game that fans have grown well used to. What it does offer, however, is C&C's most beautiful game to date.

Command and Conquer 3 is the game to buy for fans of strategy games. Constructing and commanding armies have never been simpler, and it is always a delight to watch. Command and Conquer is a game every person must pick up if they like to have some level of thought put into their multiplayer, or solo experience.

Täytyy tunnustaa, että aluksi C&C 3 tuntui pettymykseltä. Ehdin juuri tottua Supreme Commanderin monipuoliseen strategiaan, ja sitten täytyi palata takaisin kuluneelta tuntuvaan perusnaksutteluun. Muutaman tehtävän jälkeen mieleni muuttui täysin. C&C 3: Tiberium Wars on EA:n käsissä kuin tosiaikasodan NHL: erittäin näyttävä, sujuva ja tuttu. Se on tässä tapauksessa pelkkä kehu.

In many ways it was always going to very difficult to create a new Command & Conquer game that would live up to the fans expectations. Almost unbelievably though, Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is probably the sequel that everyone wanted. The single-player campaigns are first class and will hold your attention from beginning to end. Lasting between 20 and 30 hours the 35+ single missions are going to keep you busy for a while and when you're done you can take on the rather good AI in the skirmish mode. Of course then you have the online play which is certainly as good as most could have hoped for. It is disappointing that deaf gamers will miss out on elements of the game and this has to be my only disappointment with what is a very impressive addition to the Command & Conquer series.

Yet C&C3 is such an inviting and addictive product that minor shortcomings are easily overlooked. It’s a near-perfect concoction of speed, style, nostalgia, and fun. Play it now.

To cut a long story short, you can say what you want about the king of franchise milkage, but the fact remains that this is yet another noteworthy addition to the Command and Conquer license. With enough content to entangle you into an exciting single-player campaign and a satisfying multiplayer experience, C&C 3 is a strategy game I'd advise you all to pick up.

An mein Herz, liebe Entwickler von Westwood…äh EA. Nach den meines Erachtens „nur“ guten Schlacht um Mittelerde-Spielen legt ihr mit Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars wieder eine echte Meisterleistung ab. Sicherlich bietet das neue C&C gegenüber den Vorgängern wenig Neues, doch ein Spielkonzept, dass bereits vor über zehn Jahren für durchgezockte Nächte sorgte, macht auch im Jahr 2007 noch genauso viel Spaß, zumal die Technik die beste des Genres ist. Sicherlich mögen andere Genrevertreter in bestimmten Bereichen besser und vor allem innovativer sein, doch letztlich zählt nur der Spielspaß und der ist bei C&C einfach ungeschlagen. Vor allem im Mehrspielerdmodus dürfte sich Tiberium Wars wie schon C&C Generäle zu einem echten Dauerbrenner entwickeln. Eine ganz klare Kaufempfehlung, die aber ebenso uneingeschränkt für den Solomodus gilt.

As someone who has been dipping into PC gaming lately on and off, you can’t help but feel that horrid sense of console isolation when you try and control a game like this. Do not fear the pull of this title though! Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is confident enough to stick out its chest on PC and indeed the console for its impressive control setups. If you played the original and want to relive the series with all the updated wonders of modern technology or you are new to the C&C universe and love RTS games, you won’t be disappointed either way. So grab your Xbox 360 controller, dust off your Live Vision Camera and enjoy the delights of a true reincarnation that proves yet again that the good old days of gaming can be brought back without the nastiness of old age.

Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars ist ein kniffliges und sehr taktisches Spiel. Spieler die mit einen Kauf nicht ausschließen, sollten bedenken, dass man in diesem Spiel die Steuerung in- und auswendig kennen muss, um wirklich erfolgreich zu sein.

With Tiberium Wars finally correcting so many of the problems that have beset the genre since its console inception, it would be hard not to recommend this as a purchase to any 360-owning strategy fan. Whilst there are still some hardware limitations that cramp the immediacy of the control and the clarity of action on lower-end equipment, the core mechanics have now reached a point where the benefits outweigh the issues when playing on a console, and with the Live service in tow you could even make a solid argument for this to be the definitive version of Command and Conquer 3. High praise indeed, and all the sweeter for being fairly unexpected.

Zwölf Jahre sind bei Computerspielen eine Ewigkeit. Dass Command & Conquer 3 mich sofort wieder packt, obwohl es zu 80 Prozent aus dem Kern von 1995 besteht, liegt an seiner Beständigkeit. C&C-Spielen ist wie ein Klassentreffen: Ich begrüße lieb gewonnene Einheiten wie alte Freunde, die ein paar neue Kumpels mitbringen. Ich weiß, welcher Truppentyp welche Vorlieben und Abneigungen hat, wo seine Stärken und Schwächen liegen. Was Command & Conquer auch wieder grandios macht: Alles ist aus einem Guss. Schon beim Installieren. Im Hauptmenü. Sogar bei Tüddelkram wie dem Soundmenü! Dazu kommen gute Zwischenfilme, die natürlich keinen Oscar abräumen, aber mich auch mal verschnaufen und zurücklehnen lassen. Fazit: unbedingt zuschlagen!

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is... well, it's not the third Command & Conquer game. All things considered, it's more or less the eigth Command & Conquer game. Instead, it's the third of the Tiberian series / storyline. The whole name screams of cheap anyways. "It's got Tiberium and it's got Wars, let's call it Tiberium Wars!". So let's not talk about that. For those familiar with the series, well... frankly, all you need to know is this. The game is good. Really good. Command & Conquer good. Why are you reading this? You don't need to read this. Go out and get the game and it'll tell you much more than I could.

If you take Tiberium Wars for what it is, rather than what a fair few unrealistic hopers wanted it to be, then it's incredibly difficult to find fault. The retro touches like the return of cheesy cut-scenes, the universe itself and the focus on Tiberium in its decidedly science fiction storyline have had just the right amount of effort applied to make this an incredibly refined experience. Yes, skirmishes can be a little shorter than they used to be, but the slight refocus on frantic explosive action is all the progression the series really needed. Rather than make something new and try and force a gaming revolution, EA have taken something old and evolved it, with impeccable results. Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars takes a deserving place in the 'legendary' RTS line-up and will prove the perfect fix for long-time fans as well as a shining example to the few people still new to the genre.

But then, that's what a C&C game does, after all. Real actors, over-the-top stories, hyperkinetic special effects, and straight-up pulp without any silly self-awareness. Let the RTS wonks and contrarians toss it overboard for what it regurgitates -- it won't be one iota less entertaining.

If you're a fan of the Command & Conquer series, three small words are bound to get you excited: Kane is back. Indeed, so are a good number of beloved series hallmarks, like a huge amount of full-motion video and intense strategic combat. But Tiberium Wars is a lot more than just lip service to franchise enthusiasts, and you don't need the rose-hued glasses of nostalgia to appreciate its polish and intensity. It's simply a superb game that's fun and exciting to play both online and off.

Na sowas! Eine Serie, die das Genre mitbegründete, klaut von der Konkurrenz: die Videoeinblendungen während der Missionen von Act of War, die Schlachtfeldvergrößerungen von Joint Task Force. Ein paar Innovationen mehr hätte ich schon erwartet. Aber warum bin ich trotzdem so süchtig nach diesem Spiel? Vermutlich ist es die Perfektion des Bekannten: Ich habe zwar alles schon einmal gesehen, nur eben noch nie in dieser Qualität. Angefangen bei den effektvollen Schlachten über das überraschende Missionsdesign bis hin zu den herrlich überdrehten Filmsequenzen. Für mich der neue König der Echtzeit-Strategie.

If you're looking for a great RTS to play on your Xbox 360 then Command & Conquer 3 is the game to go for. The game offers a very similar experience to the PC version and plays really well. The control system is very good and feels quite natural. There have been some compromises made, there's no BattleCast feature for example and due to the nature of the control scheme it's not really possible to easily control large amounts of units as effectively as you would on the PC version, but for the most part it all works really well. In fact it's difficult to see how anyone would be able to create a better console RTS given how well things have been done with the Xbox 360 version of Command & Conquer 3.

C&C weicht nicht von der gewohnten Linie ab. Der neue Teil „Tiberium Wars“ fährt mit schweren Geschützen auf, um den Thron der Strategiespiele zurück zu erobern. Die Filmreifen Zwischensequenzen mit Starbesetzung und topp Synchronisation, die Detailtiefe der Einheiten, der fette Sound, sowie einfaches Handling, reichen nicht für eine Thronbesteigung aus. Denn leider mangelt es an Zoom, Kartengröße und Übersicht der Einheiten am Schlachtfeld. Hier hat Supreme Commander eindeutig gezeigt was Sache ist. Für Strategiefans führt jedoch kein Weg an Command & Conquer Teil 3 vorbei. Die Atmosphäre und der Spielspaß sind dem Konkurrenten absolut ebenbürtig, wenn nicht sogar eine Spur besser umgesetzt. In Sachen Multiplayer sind wieder lange Nächte vorprogrammiert.

Tiberium Wars ist im Mehrspielermodus das beste C&C, das ich je gespielt habe. Es ist wesentlich schneller als Tiberian Sun, abgedrehter als Generäle und selbstverständlich wesentlich zeitgemäßer als Tiberian Dawn und Alarmstufe Rot (1 und 2). Und es trifft mit seiner Hollywood-Trash-Popcorn-Inszenierung genau den Nerv der Zeit. Dazu laufen Multiplayer-Partien stabil und lagfrei, das Balancing ist für die kurze Zeit bereits relativ ausgewogen. Was mich aber stört, ist, dass trotz der dritten und zudem neuen Spielpartei C&C 3 irgendwie altbacken wirkt. Warum gibt es neben den Deathmatch-Modi nicht auch eine Art Risikovariante, in der ich online oder im lokalen Netzwerk um Territorien kämpfe? Und warum nicht mal eine Spaßvariante wie Tower Defense, Capture the Flag oder King of the Hill serienmäßig einbauen? Auch die Kartenauswahl haut mich nicht vom Hocker.

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is an excellent real-time strategy game that is worth playing regardless of the platform. If you still have a sneaking suspicion that the Xbox 360 version suffers from the inferior control scheme of a controller, think again. After a few minutes of adjusting, you'll find that it's just as easy to perform at your peak on the Xbox 360's controller as it is on a keyboard and mouse setup on a PC. The graphics and sound are great, but most importantly, the multiplayer is absolutely fantastic, and you can easily spend hours on the Xbox 360 lost in the world that is Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars.

Tiberium Wars is just an excellent example of how a strategy game off of its native platform should be. When it came out in the PC earlier this year we gave it our highly revered editor’s choice award. This time, unfortunately due to the graphics we won’t be able to give it the same score, but in every other respect it is just as good of a game. If you’re a fan of strategy games and have wanted something really good, this is the game. It’s a must-own for any fan of the genre whether it’s on the PC or Xbox 360. Do yourself a favor and pick it up today. We’ll see you online.

When viewed as a whole, Tiberium Wars is packed with immersive action, gorgeous visuals, upgradeable battlefield hardware, a plethora of destructive choices, and a reassuring conviction and self-belief that may just be remembered as the blueprint from which all other console-based RTS titles will be built.

Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars is een uitstekende RTS-game en een waardig opvolger in de Command & Conquer-reeks.

De campaigns zullen je vele uren zoet houden en als je daar mee klaar bent kun je nog weken, zoniet maanden plezier hebben met de skirmish en de online multi-player. Vooral de online multiplayer zit uitstekend in elkaar en het ranking systeem zorgt ervoor dat je niet alleen gemakkelijk tegenstanders van je eigen niveau kunt vinden, maar ook een kleine trofee overhoudt aan elke overwinning.

With all this said though, you'd be hard pressed to find another RTS out there that beats C&C 3 in quality when implementing said traditional and generic fundamentals, and while the live action isn't what I'd call premier movie grade, it is definitely some of the best acting and story telling the gaming world has ever seen giving a rather "big budget by gaming standards" impression. If you're expecting the end all one-of-a-kind RTS in C&C 3, you will be disappointed, but if you're expecting some no-nonsense, down right fun and addictive RTS gaming based around a proven formula, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

C&C 3 goes a long way to dispelling the argument that these kind of RTS games cannot be done on a console.

Nie, aber wirklich niemals hätte ich mir träumen lassen, dass mir bei Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars tatsächlich die Videosequenzen aufstoßen würden. Doch in der Tat, die anfängliche Freude über Jennifer Morrison und Konsorten verflog schnell. An der Genrespitze ist die Luft nun einmal sehr dünn die Schwächen bei der Geschichtserzählung (mal ehrlich: die Scrin-Kampagne ist doch ein Witz) und beim streckenweise uninspirierten Missionsdesign (warum gibt es keine einzige Indoor-Mission?) lassen den Abstand zu Die Schlacht um Mittelerde 2 und Company of Heroes schnell anwachsen. Wer diese Punkte außer Acht lässt, bekommt mit Tiberium Wars ein hochkarätiges Strategiespiel auf die Festplatte: Die Grafik ist über weite Strecken grandios, die Einheiten ein echter Spaß-Faktor und die Benutzeroberfläche eingängiger als alles, was ich bisher je gesehen habe. Auch das Wiedersehen mit Kane tut sein Übriges, um Schlaf zum optionalen Missionsziel verkommen zu lassen.

With games like Supreme Commander bringing tactical depth and tech leveling to the next level, EA has walked a different path with C&C3. Tiberium Wars is to Supreme Commander what Serious Sam is to Half-Life 2. It’s a game with a cheesy atmosphere and a great technical backing that makes for quick and fun gameplay. However, the balancing issues are a real party pooper for those that like playing with NOD and the fact that both campaigns are in se the same doesn’t help either. Command & Conquer is back and it’s fun, but it could have been near perfect if EA would have taken a little bit more care of the issues mentioned.

I suppose the upshot of it is, Tiberium Wars is an old game in new clothing, which, fortunately, is a not a bad thing. Sure, some of the sound effects are recycled from the earliest C&C titles – send out infantry to be slaughtered and tell me I’m wrong – and it does not bring anything significantly new to the genre but is sure is fun.

EA LA stuck to C&C's roots in Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, almost to a fault. While there are new features and tweaks to increase the pace of play, the core fundamentals remain strikingly similar to previous games in the C&C Tiberium series. Players looking for something new in their RTS aren't going to find it here, but they will find plenty of fun. The tempo has been given a jump start but this is basically the same RTS we've been playing for years and years, which will undoubtedly please throngs of fans. This time around it's just more polished and presented in its most beautiful package to date.

By setting the tone as unrealistic melodrama, you subconsciously expect the game to be. And lo! It Is. So you just get down to harvesting as much Tiberium as you can, and spending it on the finest array of military hardware you can amass, to prepare for the over-the-top future war. Jetpack troopers. Enormous robots that can tear apart their own vehicles to add more weapons. Enormous floating frisbees of death. Orbital death lasers. And, of course, our old friend the nuclear missile. And that's exactly what Command & Conquer 3 feels like. As the screen fills with explosions, it feels like an old friend. It's good to have him back.

There are still those reluctant C&C fans who don’t like the futuristic route the series has turned, but everyone else will have no choice but to become addicted to one of the best RTS franchises, with Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars leaving no one behind in disappointment.

If you want to run this bad boy on your big screen HDTV set in the comfort of your living room, the Xbox 360 version does a stand up job and is nearly identical to the experience the PC version delivers, with a few extras online too boot!

Command and Conquer 3 enters the reinvigorated RTS genre by providing a fun single player experience along with some great multiplayer. Hardly groundbreaking, the game upgrades just enough to feel unique on its own while still remaining enjoyable to play. True, it could be said EA played it safe with this latest entry into the series, but most seasoned C&C veterans probably prefer it this way. Featuring some of the fastest-paced battles in any RTS, Tiberium Wars delivers not just for fans of Command and Conquer, but fans of the genre in general.

Wer als Strategie-Fan bislang nicht die Möglichkeit hatte Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars auf dem PC zu spielen, kann bei der XBox360-Version bedenkenlos zugreifen. Als C&C-Spieler der ersten Stunde und ehemaliger C&C Generals Möchtegern Pro-Gamer freut es mich natürlich umso mehr, dass Tiberium Wars sowohl gelungene Elemente aus den klassischen Teilen, als auch der „modernen“ Version vereint. Taktik und Tiefgang mussten bei C&C 3 einem schnellen, actionorientierten Gameplay weichen, das von trashigen Videosequenzen und abwechslungsreichen Missionen getragen wird. Wie in den guten alten Zeiten also. Grafisch bewegt sich der Titel auf gehobenem Niveau, kann aber mit der Optik der PC-Version auf aktuellen Top-PCs nicht mithalten. Ganz ähnlich sieht es mit der Steuerung aus, die zwar auf der Konsole relativ gut gelöst wurde, im Vergleich zur klassischen Maus-Tastatur-Steuerung des PCs aber ganz klar den Kürzeren zieht.

If you can, you’ll want to play Command & Conquer 3 on the PC. If you can’t, the Xbox 360 version is good enough that it is definitely worth playing. The fast paced nature of the game can make things a little bit frustrating in the story mode, especially when you can’t quickly reload a mission once things go sour.

When you put it all together, you’ve got one impressive little game.

C&C3 feels like a mashed up version of the original 1995 game, transferred to the Generals style, minus the innovative features. The introduction of Scrin is implemented well but I'd have preferred to see the time invested in adding depth to GDI and NOD with the introduction of 6 or so units on each side. There are few surprises on offer, and while most design decisions are solid you can't help but think something more ambitious things could have been accomplished. Back when Tiberian Sun was released we all thought it was a good game but knew it had fundamental design issues that meant it would never be in the same league as the classic originals. C&C3 makes similar mistakes and again we're left, 12 years later, with a C&C game lacking the charm and excitement of the originals.

Tiberium Wars är så bra som det kan vara och idag betyder det att det inte är dåligt, men inte perfekt. Det är ett lagom underhållande spel som är extra underhållande för seriens fans och som säkerligen kommer att gå varmt över multiplayer framöver. Det ÄR Command & Conquer 3, på gott och ont.

Kein Zweifel: Mit "Command & Conquer 3 - Tiberium Wars" kommt ein grundsolides Strategiespiel. Da weiß man, was man hat: Im Vergleich zum Vorgänger wurde es nur behutsam verändert und dabei vor allem schöner. Eine die Handlung verbindende Hintergrundgeschichte mit erstklassigen Schauspielern (leider katastrophal synchronisiert), eine deutlich aufgepeppte Grafik und abwechslungsreiche Spielaufgaben machen den Titel zum potenziellen Erfolgsprodukt. Wer bereits frühere Episoden der C&C-Reihe gespielt hat, kann ohne Probleme sofort einsteigen und findet sich schnell zurecht. Neulingen in der Tiberium-Welt hilft das Programm mit leichten Startaufgaben. Gut so.

Alors indispensable ou pas ? Le manque de véritables nouveautés côté gameplay pourrait faire hésiter pas mal de monde, mais ça serait se priver d’un excellent STR, qui se paye le luxe d’être beau, optimisé pour tourner sur des configurations très modestes (contrairement à Supreme Commander) et avec une durée de vie plus que correcte. Entre le mode campagne très riche, les escarmouches pour s’entrainer et le multi pour passer aux choses sérieuses, c’est le genre de produit qui ne prendra pas la poussière sur vos étagères avant un moment.

En næsten skræmmende loyal treer. Et vidnesbyrd om C&C-seriens sans for fortælling, stemning og den rendyrkede glæde ved at bygge, angribe og erobre, men også en løftet pegefinger til RTS-genren om, hvor lidt én af dens største varemærker har flyttet sig på et årti. Et velkomment nyt kapitel for fants - en spøjs tidsrejse tilbage til 1995 for alle andre.

Command & Conquer 3 is an awesome addition to EA’s franchise and a solid Mac offering. It’s just a shame that PowerPC-based Mac users can’t play it too.

Die Entwickler von Electronic Arts machen es einem nicht einfach, eine klare Wertung abzugeben. Erst einmal spielt der Nostalgie-Bonus eine ganz entscheidende Rolle. Dieses prächtige Videospiel-Universum ziehe ich nun mal jedem „zweiten Weltkrieg“ oder jedem austauschbaren Science-Fiction-Szenario vor. Außerdem sorgt die klasse Präsentation samt schmissiger Grafik für genug optische Anreize, um die spielerischen Defizite zu übertünchen. Einige Details hätte man ganz sicher noch besser machen können, doch unterm Strich sind alle Fans froh, dass der Titel so nah am Original geblieben ist.

EA still hasn't quite nailed the RTS experience with "Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars" on the 360 yet. The controls and interface are much improved over BFME2, but the inferior graphics, long loading times and save times, and occasionally laggy multiplayer mean this can only be recommended if your PC is not up to running that version. However, the game does have some neat additions, and is still a valiant attempt that deserves a lot of praise and is most definitely worth playing, even if you just watch the amazing full-motion cut scenes. The campaign's length also makes the game great value for money, so you really can't go wrong, despite the occasional, minor gripe.

All in all, the 360 version of Tiberium Wars is a fantastic attempt at bringing the Command & Conquer series over to consoles. However, there is no getting away from the fact that the port does bring up a few annoyances that impede the experience being a truly awesome one. As I stated before, the biggest of these problems is the control method - it simply does not hold up well enough during some of the more manic missions. Thankfully with continual play most people will start to learn little tricks and become more proficient at using the pad to control the units which in effect cancels out the game's biggest point of contention. Other than that everything is just as you’d expect it to be, Tiberium Wars truly is everything you would expect from a C&C game.

Difficile de trouver un gros point faible à Command & Conquer 3 tant chacun de ses aspects a été soigné. Certes, la jouabilité au pad est moins agréable qu'avec une souris, mais les modes multijoueurs exclusifs à cette version 360 parviennent à faire passer la pilule. Voilà donc un jeu de stratégie à acheter si vous aimez le genre et que vous ne disposez pas d'un ordinateur assez puissant pour faire tourner la version PC.

Difficile de trouver un gros point faible à Command & Conquer 3 tant chacun de ses aspects a été soigné. Quelques modes multijoueurs en plus du classique deathmatch, ainsi qu'une race alien vraiment différente des factions humaines dans son système économique auraient néanmoins été les bienvenus. Finalement, c'est le grand classicisme dont fait preuve le titre qui lui porte un peu préjudice et fait baisser légèrement sa note générale. Cependant, on prend tout de même tellement de plaisir en enchaînant des parties rapides et intenses que l'on ne peut que conseiller le soft.

Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars turns out to be a sequel that surprises as it tempers the spirits searching for a last minute twist. Short on innovation, while keeping its head pretty high, but in the same time, nothing short of a delicious experience. The series' fans will definitely be pleased with a working communion between old and new, yet they'll raise their eyes in an instant, waiting heart-clutched, further moves from the EA troops. The RTS genre scores improvements in visual quality, as we share the upgrade induced obsession.

Globalement, ce n’est pas si mal que ça, et le jeu est même plus complexe qu’il n’y paraît. Command & Conquer 3 est donc un bon portage, et le jeu ne perd pas en maniabilité ni en beauté sur Xbox 360. Seule différence, les actions sont un poil moins rapides, à cause de la manette évidemment. Mais heureusement, le jeu conserve toute sa saveur.

If you're a C&C fan but lack the power on your PC to play it, own a 360, then you could do worse than picking up this slice of gaming pie. If you hanker for the good old days of the Wing Commander FMV, then pick up this game. If you're new the series and you really want to see what C&C is like, you guessed it, pick up this game.

We fully enjoyed the explosive action of Tiberium War’s single-player campaign—the game has a Hollywood blockbuster look and feel. Unfortunately, the visual flair comes at the cost of tactical depth and innovations in strategy. Tiberium War is the best Command & Conquer game to date, but it can’t hold its own against the hardcore likes of Supreme Commander and Company of Heroes.

Är då denna skapelse värdig att bära vidare på Command & Conquer-fanan? Jo, det tycker jag. Det har mycket av det som gjorde de första spelen i serien så populära, en underhållande och utmanande enspelarupplevelse ackompanjerat av högupplösta mellansekvenser med riktiga skådespelare och utmanande kampanjer. Den välbehövda uppfräschningen av multiplayerläget tillsammans med ett par nya idéer och tillskottet av en tredje fraktion gör Tiberium Wars till en komplett uppföljare, som dock har ett par mindre problem inom balansering och den artificiella intelligensen. Det har även rapporteras om diverse buggar som jag lyckligtvis inte stött på.

While there's a certain obnoxiousness in its total refusal to innovate, in a lot of ways it's exactly the right real-time strategy game at exactly the right time. After years in the wilderness, RTS is pretty cool again right now, and something as cheerfully straightforward as this is just what's needed to stop the big braininess of Company of Heroes and Supreme Commander leading to another plunge into an inaccessibility that turns more casual players off the whole genre. On its own, it wouldn't work, but as an alternative, even a companion piece, to those it's a gentle success. This is the ying to their yang, the Question of Sport to their Have I Got News For You - it's pure trash, and it suits Command & Conquer through-and-through. Really, it has no right to try and be anything else, and it's because it knows this that it works so well.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. That old adage seems particularly appropriate for the new Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, the latest in the futuristic RTS series pitting the Global Defense Initiative against the Brotherhood of Nod. The game takes the series back to its roots with fast-paced gameplay, full-motion video sequences with familiar actors, and enough explosions to keep armchair generals on the edge of their seats. While the graphics and sound have been updated for the times, don't expect many changes in the way the game is played and how it feels. This is Command & Conquer, and the developers didn't mess too much with a winning formula.

The game was already light on innovation, and a less-than-stellar presentation of tired ideas isn't anything to get excited over.

Command & Conquer 3 isn't a brilliant reinvention of the RTS game. It's dirt-farming and mediocre live-action cutscenes and tank rushes and screaming that the Mammoth Tank is unbalanced (it is), and that's where the fun lies. If the PC isn't an option or if you just need those Achievements, you'll do fine with C&C3 on the 360. It's just that you'll inevitably end up wishing you could play with a mouse and keyboard.

Med det sagt kan jag ändå inte förbehållslöst förorda 360-ägare att panga spargrisen utan eftertanke. Spelet finns trots allt redan utgivet till pc - då med den uppenbara fördelen att kunna använda mus. Om du prompt skall smiska Kanes svartmuskiga busar på konsol är Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars i sin 360-utgåva inget dåligt köp. Tvärtom - trots ett förutsägbart och traditionellt RTS-upplägg visar Electronic Arts att genren fortfarande kan plocka poäng på den tillfredsställande känslan av att se tio Mammoth Mk 2-stridsvagnar förvandla fiendebasen till en grushög.

We're sure Tiberium Wars will still find a following in the Xbox Live community, though. After all, people are still playing Battle for Middle-earth II today, and C&C3's super-shortcut controls should prove popular...overly magnetic cursors or not. Just save yourself a lot of grief and don't play too far into the single-player campaign....
