Descriptions:

The 3rd part of the Command & Conquer series series is a continuation of the storyline in the first game - pitting Kane's Brotherhood of NOD and its religious fanatics against the Global Defense Initiative. In gameplay terms, the GDI is more powerful and its units have a science-fiction feel, whereas NOD is a renegade force primed for sneak attacks.

This version replaces the graphics engine with a mixture of voxel and bitmap graphics. Several new units have been added, like hover tanks, subterranean units and the Mammoth MKII Super-Unit. Unit production can be queued. Most single-player missions have time limits and specific challenges.

Surprise attacks (using air transports for the GDI underground passages for the NOD) are one tactical option. Some units are only effective against certain units or buildings, emphasizing the strategic side of the game.

(Croatian:)

U prošlosti ste ratovali protiv Staljina, u sadašnjosti ste se sukobili sa Kaneom. Vrijeme je da vidite buduænost! Bitka se nastavlja na završetak Command & Conquera ako ste igrali kao GDI. Kane je navodno stradao u svom hramu, ali tijelo nikada nije pronaðeno, i eto opet zapleta. Ako izaberete GDI stranu, igra zapoèinje sa iznenadnom pojavom NOD jedinica, i još èudnije, Kanea. Vi, u ulozi Commandera McNeila (Michael Biehn) uzimate potrebne jedinice i kreæete na 'put bez povrtka'. Ako pak odluèite slijediti Kaneovim stopama, nalazite se u ulozi Slavika (Frank Zagarino), u potpunosti predanog služenju Kaneovih ciljeva po cijenu života i smrti.

Igra je izometrièna, i podržava rezolucije 640x480 i 800x600. Eksplozije su odlièno napravljene, padanje aviona, mijenjanje terena, a što se tièe animacija, nešto neviðeno. Za razliku od Red Alerta, ovdje nema vodenih jedinica, ali odreðene jedinice imaju svojstva prelaženja vode, ili pak kopanja pod zemljom. Potpuno novi arsenal jedinica i kuæa koje ne pokazuju na prethodnika ove igre po nièemu drugome osim po znaku GDIa i NODa, te dakako Kanea.
