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. Featuring state-of-the-art next-generation graphics, an epic story, and truly innovative features such as the ability to transform online battles into a spectator sport, Command & Conquer is about to reinvent RTS gaming … again. Welcome back, Commander.

Game works perfectly on Windows 8

Graphics still hold up to this day

There is no unit limit

Game is balanced

Music is great

Campaign is pretty long. Possible to play as all 3 sides.

Not sure about in-game multiplayer services, but hamachi/Gameranger work fine.

AI can put up a fight and has different "characters" (Agressive, defensive, etc).

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.

I bought this game on Disc so ignore my time counter. This is the end all be all of strategy gaming. great balance of units count and variety, simple economics. Aircraft that actually move around for combat. tech trees that are different and yet balanced. a strong campaign and a brutal AI.

unfortunately due to the advent of C&C4 (utter garbage) it is the last great C&C.

Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath Review
Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight

INTRODUCTION:
Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is a real-time strategy game that was developed and published by Electronic Arts mostly due to the acquisition of Westwood Studios by EA and Westwood's closure back in 2003. This game continues the Tiberian Sun story arc and is a direct sequel to Tiberian Sun & its expansion Tiberian Sun: Firestorm.

Following the franchise tradition, this title follows the story of the almost never ending conflict between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and an international paramilitary / militant religious organization called the Brotherhood of Nod. Unlike its predecessors however, this game introduces a new faction in an effort by EA to add more gameplay diversity. The new faction is known as the Scrin.

PROS:
+ The game has good art style and graphics: (Both of which aged really well specially since this game was released back in 2008.)
+ Very good Sound design and unit voice acting.
+ Quality live action cinematic played by very well known Hollywood stars and the ever iconic Joseph D. Kucan as “Kane.”
+ Lengthy Campaign for each of the factions (about 20 hours if you play them in the Very Hard difficulty setting)
+ Great story that is interwoven with each faction (meaning that each faction “wins” in their own right)
+ New Faction that is fun to play and comes with an unlockable Campaign once you finish both GDI and NOD campaigns.
+ Old factions (GDI and NOD) has been revamped with new units and playstyles without deviating from their respective origin stories.
+ Fast paced and intense action.
+ Lore heavy with story continuity from the old games.
+ Fun and challenging missions during the campaign.
+ Revamped game mechanics such as squad based infantry, super unit capture etc.

CONS:
- No online multiplayer due to GameSpy shutdown: FIX
- Some unit pathfinding quirks
- Some balance issues (specially with the super units)
- Relatively small maps
- Limited tech-tree options and build orders
- Campaign strategic options has no real effect
- Random difficulty spikes between the campaign missions

NEUTRAL
+/- Mission objectives are immediately marked in the map thus depriving the player of map exploration. A.K.A. spoon feeding the player enemy locations.

CONCLUSION:
GREAT GAME that captures the fun and excitement of the old C&C games while adding its own modern ideas to mix thus making for a wonderful and action packed RTS experience.

WORTH IT?
The game at full price is $15 (or your regional equivalent) thus its a must have for RTS fans and Command & Conquer fans a like.

Again I have to stress out that the official multiplayer servers are now permanently offline so you'll have to use CNC:Online if you want to experience the game's online multiplayer feature.

This game is very good.

Enemy attacks with infantry- base almost destroyed
rebuild & buy some anti-infantry tower
Enemy attacks with Tanks- base almost destroyed
rebuild & buy some anti-tank tower
More power required
Enemy attacks with air- base barely made it
rebuild & buy some anti-air defenses.
*Temple of NOD detected*

The second best C&C right next to Kanes Wrath, great campaign, decent graphics fun gameplay. Sadly when gamespy died EA didn't support the game with a multiplayer update, so it's no longer worth getting...
