Summary

An addictive game.

The Good

This game fascinated me from the first minute on when I played the demo. I like those huge pixel-mammuts, this whole quite detailed war simulation. I think the units are a main plus of the game, they're very different on both sides. And all the tactics you can use - e.g. you can easily kill an obelisk with 10 simple soldiers. Another thing which is positively remarkable about C&C is the dense atmoshpere generated through the cutscenes. And of course, they music was quite cool at this time.

The Bad

Actually not much - of course the AI was crap, like building a wall around the enemy base without the computer being able to destroy it ... or the stupid harvesters ... but that didn't disturb me.

The Bottom Line

A real classic one, many tried to copy it, but most failed. Get the game if it's not yet in your collection.
