Computer Gaming World (CGW)
The bottom line seems to be one of origins. Virgin has upped this form to the graphic and multi-player standards of today, but failed to rework the basic engine enough to create a entirely new game. So, if you thought gathering up “money” from the surface, building bases and exploring dark territory was stupid, it still is and your dollars are probably best spent elsewhere. On the other hand, if you even remotely enjoyed DUNE II, COMMAND AND CONQUER is the game for you. It is more than entertaining enough to make up for its shortcomings, and the two CDs contain nearly a hundred hours of missions for the average gamer. If nothing else, the entertainment factor is high enough and the action fast enough to please all but the most jaded wargamers.
