About This Game

The year is 2047. A massive nuclear fireball explodes high in the night sky, marking the dramatic beginning of the Third Tiberium War and the long-awaited return of the most groundbreaking Real-Time Strategy franchise of all time. Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars unveils the future of RTS gaming by bringing you back to where it all began: the Tiberium Universe. With the corrupt substance Tiberium blanketing most of the Earth, the infamous Kane is back to lead his Brotherhood of Nod in a massive global assault on the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the few remaining livable Blue Zones left on the planet. Only you can stop him.

This is really, really an amazing game. This, along with C&C3 Kane's Wrath, are easily some of the best RTS games I've ever played. If you're looking for a great RTS game, buy this one, then buy the expansion for an even better experience.

But seriously, STOP HERE. Do NOT buy C&C4. C&C4 is a colossal train wreck, EA changed and ruined nearly everything that made C&C, well, C&C. C&C Tiberian Twilight is easily one of the worst video games that's ever been made. C&C3, though, is one of the best.

If you've got $15 to spare, spend it on this. That's my advice.

Great game, after so many years I still enjoy this game. It is worth purchase! It aged nicely, still one of best strategy games out on the market. In the game there are some actors who acted in Battlestar Galactica, Lost and Starship Troopers. 1000/10

The year is 2045. World is almost completelly infested with a strange, green substance, called Tiberium. This "thing" dropped down on Earth in 1990, and hell yeah, Earth will remember that day forever. Clearly an alien in origin, Tiberium (or Ichor - this is probably it's real name, given that the Scrins called it this way) has a very unlikely structure, and two very important abilities - 1st, it converts everything it touches, into itself, 2nd, its kind off... living. It is evolving.

On Earth, there are those, who want to get rid of this thing. And also those, who can claim it, worship it, and use it, maybe for greater good. These two sides can not go side by side. Thus - they are at an apocalyptic war across the entire planet !

This game, released in 2007, is still awesome. Yesterday, I was able to play it in Ultra High grafics with 3rd level AA - and I must say, this one still packs some power. Still amazingly smooth, still looking good. I like the story - and also cutscenes. Well, they could have been better, but this is no movie, this is just a game. And for a game, I can give those cutscenes 7/10. Textures are amazing, 8/10, but then you will see Scrins and you will have to give another point. Sounds are also very great, 8.5/10. Music is amazing, 9.5/10, it is not the best in the world, but it is very fiting and adictive.

Also mechanics, those are great as well. You have to consider at this point, that the game is 7 years old already, and back there... You know, technology and also programming went up. I still remmember how long I waited, together with my brother, to get this one in hand. I was 17 years old when it came out - and our poor old PC (2.4GHz Celeron - ONE core, 0.75GB RAM DDR2, and 0.5GB graphic card) can run it only on the lowest settings. But still, when I saw Mammoth tanks, Avatars and Tripods on one screen - hell yeah baby. I knew, that I will love this game one day.

Command and Conquer 3 has to be one of the greatest in the series since the very first installment. If you aren't familiar with the series, pick this up. It's my all time favorite. Play as GDI, NOD, and god damn aliens. Evil god damn aliens.
