A worthy sequel to a classic strategy game!
Unlike the original Red Alert, I was much more able to get into the campaign missions in Red Alert 2. Somehow they just seem to be structured much better. Plus, they take place in a lot of realistic locations. Even the cutscenes that precede each mission are much more believable and entertaining than average.
As in any C&C game, Red Alert 2 features an excellent soundtrack, cool units, and there is now a whole slew of internet play modes that are quite a lot of fun.
The updates to the game's interface are also much appreciated.
There aren't really too many significant gameplay differences from the original Red Alert.
The Bottom Line
A simple, fun, and addictive, "just blow your enemies away" type of strategy game.
