About This Game


The desperate leadership of a doomed Soviet Union travels back in time to change history and restore the glory of Mother Russia. The time travel mission goes awry, creating an alternate timeline where technology has followed an entirely different evolution, a new superpower has been thrust on to the world stage, and World War III is raging. The Empire of the Rising Sun has risen in the East, making World War III a three-way struggle between the Soviets, the Allies, and the Empire with armies fielding wacky and wonderful weapons and technologies like Tesla coils, heavily armed War Blimps, teleportation, armored bears, intelligent dolphins, floating island fortresses, and transforming tanks.

Gamespy is closing its servers the 30th of June. This means that you cannot play this game online anymore.

There are plans that someone else might take over the server. Still I was told that this was not certain.

More information can be found on the Red Alert 3 community website:

Solid gameplay, good campaign, and intriguing units. This truely is the sequel to red alert 2 with its querkyness and all. Although this game does not take itself very seriously it is massively fun to play for hours on end. Strategy is key in this game where you have many options of assault and you are able to take research and development in different areas to see what is effective. You will soon learn after playing the strengths and weaknesses of each faction and just how to play as each. This game decides to mix naval air and ground battles just as in red alert 2 but it is done better as you have the worry of being snuck up on by enemy fleets, or bombed by bombers.

This game is great and I enjoy it more than many of the other command and conquer games out there. Definitely buy this and if you enjoy the campaign or just single player battles but wish for more units then buy the expansion pack it is worth the money if you don't mind no multiplayer which really is a shame.

Very nice follow up on RA2. I really enjoyed the Rising Sun campaign! C&C remains RTS king.

Has a co-op campaign that is great to play with your significant other, and a tongue-in-cheek storyline that is quite entertaining.

The Good:
Red Alert 3 is a great game. The easy user interface combined with the fast action make me choose this game over Starcraft II on a nearly daily basis. The multiplayer is amazing, and the game is incredibly balanced. Unfortunately, the game does not have a massive online community. You end up running into the same people, time and time again.

The Bad:
As a fan of Red Alert 1 and 2, I found the campaign to be COMPLETELY destroyed by EA. Real actors, combined with cartoony stuff, and Tanya having blonde hair. It made me cringe. If you're looking to play the campaign, and not delve into the incredible tactics within the multiplayer... don't bother. This game is not for you.
