Summary

Better than Tiberian Sun by far.

The Good

The graphics, although still 2D, are well designed, and highly detailed. The gameplay is basically the same as the rest of the series, although new additions to this version make it all worthwhile. Multiplayer is the same frenzy, which isn’t a bad thing. And the acting isn't all that bad, either.

The Bad

Not much to say here, although if you have played the previous titles before to death, you may not find much here that you might enjoy. The graphics are still in 2D, and a little dated, but they do the job adequately. Multiplayer may get boring if you don't have enough players.

The Bottom Line

The best in the long running series since the original C&C. Definitely a huge improvement over Tiberian. Still, I get the feeling that this series is coming to an end, and a 3D version may not be far off.
