Wow...I am blown away by this game. This is one of those games where you say "It may be a school night, and I have to get up before 10, but I'll just play for 10 minutes or so..." yeah, that ten minutes later..."Oh crap, it's been 2 hours, I need some sleep...ok, 30 more minutes" *Alarm goes off* "♥♥♥♥ 10:30 AM" Well, it was fun while it lasted...but I get to play after school so YAY" Get home from school and go straight to this. Yeah, this game is THAT good.

Now for the actuall review type suff:

Graphics: Not that great, but does it matter with a game like this? Plus the special effects like fire and explosions are quite satisfying to see.

Gameplay: It is quite easy to get the hang of it after about 10 or so minutes. Solid, fun, eaasy to understand.

Awesomeness: 100/10. Need I say more?

Features: This is awesome. Now I have only played like 2 other RTS games ever, so I don't know if this is a common RTS feature, but you can literally level the environment. Bring every building to the ground.

SPOILER BEYOND HERE:

Other Features: You can call in airstrikes, control tanks, humvees, different types of infantry, anit-air vehicles, and much more. And in that airstrike section, you can also call in napalm strikes, precise bombs (for specific targets) and much more.

Story: I'm not gonna lie, the story gave me chills seeing what it would actually look like when the Russians storm our coasts and invade Seatle. Civilians dying, hospitals, super markets, office buildings, coming to the ground with bombs. It was so real it literally gave me chills. That's saying something. The cutscenes are pretty cool to watch. Realistic movement and voice acting, great audio quality, and overall exciting and thrilling to watch.

OVERALL SUMMARY: Great game, worth the price, tons of fun to come. And I haven't even tried the multiplayer yet. So I would recommend this to any fan of CoD and RTS. Totally satisfied with this purchase.

Imagine if the worst fear actually came to reality. That is pretty much what this game is all about. The Soviet Union attempting to accomplish world domination by invading both the United States and Western Europe. It is really cool how you control your forces in attempting to wipe your enemy. The story is great and fun, and the multiplayer is even better. Really gives you the idea if World War III actually would have happened at the final years of the Cold War. Graphics and effects are mind-blowing and exciting, you can call in reinforcements by having them airdropped onto the field and call in a variety of support attacks. You will never feel more rewarded when you drop a tactical nuke on an incoming wave of enemy forces, or use a tank-buster strafing run that wipes out a long line of enemy vehicles like dominos. You might even find yourself laughing like a mad-scientist if this were to happen. 8.1 out of 10. Very well made and deserves a lot of credit (and gameplay). Also very addicting.

This is a great RTS game for those who love stragety games, The unit control is great and the diffrent roles for Infantry, Armor, Support and Air is also great, I strongly suggest that if you get this game then go download the Modern Warfare mod for this game, it changes the game and for the better, It updates the units to what the military is using today, There is modernized rocket artillery, the Air role is given Jets, although you cannot control the Jets you can order fire missions on enemy units. All I have left to say is if you like real-time stragety games, then GET THIS GAME

I dont know, WHO those people with good reviews, but THIS GAME DOES NOT WORK on newer hardware with windows 7 (x64)
Seriously? This game ARE sold be steam - and it only can be launched on operation system which ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY MICROSOFT ANYMORE???

Dont buy it unless you have Windows XP. Or this will be a waste of money (Steam dont do refunds, you know?)
=====================================================
Я не знаю, ктопишет эти положительные ревью, но ЭТА ИГРА НЕ РАБОТАЕТ с новыми компьютерами - и даже не поддерживает виндоус 7.
Серьезно? Игра, продающаяся в стиме может быть запущена только на операционной системе, любая поддержка которой прекращена разработчиками?
Не покупайте ее, если у вас не стоит виндоус XP, или это будет пустой тратой денег, так как Стим официально не делает возвратов...
Также в ней нет русского, а английская озвучка ужасна по сравнению с русской.

NOTE: My time here is not accurate, I owned a non-Steam copy that I had countless hours on, not sure exactly.

This game is maybe the best RTS ever made, coming from someone who loves RTSs. At its peak, the multiplayer was my favorite multiplayer game ever, but there isn't much happening on the servers these days. The campaign is a bit lackluster but still fun.

The reason this game was so good was its fast paced action that was still easy to micromanage. It was super fun learning how to properly use the different classes in multiplayer. The best part is using artillery and air strikes to level areas of the map, and using each type of tactical aid to perfection.

I'll try to keep it short:

by the way, I did not play the multiplayer.

Pro's:

- Very good looking Strategy Game
- Interesting Story
- Innovative camera
- Play on both sides (USSR+ USA) which diminishes the good/bad cliche a bit.

Con's:

- unfortunately no Building, just calling reinforcements (you have to use a points system, the reinforcements get dropped in via airplane)
- gets a bit repetitive after a while (In every mission you either have to conquer a spot or hold it, or both^^)
- Story-ending to open for my taste
- Normal mode is too easy
- in some parts the story is too cliche. (I don't want to spoil, but you will see it when you play the game)

Conclusion:

Can recommend it for strategy fans who do not need a serieus challenge and are ok with not being able to build a base!

If you have a modern machine game is not very stable. Look at the forums and do some research before purchasing the game.
