Summary

A general disappointment.

The Good

As always, the Command & Conquer gameplay is there, and there are quite a few things to like -- the graphics are pretty, the deformable terrain is neat, and the full motion video is pretty and well-acted for a game.

The Bad

However, the same system and interface that Westwood used with C&C: Red Alert and the original C&C is still here, and the gameplay is pretty stale as well. C&C: TS is one thing that the previous two were never: boring. Missions are fairly run of the mill, and there's really nothing new to the game.

The Bottom Line

If you're a total neophyte to computer games and Command & Conquer, give it a spin. If you've played either Red Alert or the original, don't bother -- you've seen it all (albiet without colored lighting) before.
