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.

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.

One of the best C&C Game Ea has released in ages wished that Westwood didnt shut down because Ea ♥♥♥♥♥ just had to ruin the forth Command and conquer wishing that multiplayer was online again that was the key of their sales but anyway balanced game could be helpful to add some sort of extra defence like walls and more troops but anyway 9/10 Would buy it again!

Ignore my hours. I had this game on disk since it first came out, and honestly, its had more time put into it than any of my other strategy games put together.

When Westwood still existed the C&C series always were wonderful to play - There was just that touch of polish and care which went into their games that you didn't quite get with others, even right down to the little animations of the commandos lighting a cigerrette and chucking it aside, quoting one of their infamous lines with a chuckle. So for 2D units you were commanding quite a colourful and unique army.

However when C&C3 came along... Oohh boy, that jump into 3D. It brought fresh life to the series!
... too bad it was the last 'good' game beyond Red Alert 3 after that. EA had washed everything 'Westwood' down the drain.


As always the three factions are almost brilliantly balanced; They each have strengths and flaws which play a triangular role against one another, with similar but unique powers and tech trees. While they can be infamous for certain reasons - Scrin with their hordes of alien ships for example - there is no reason why a player cannot use either GDI or NOD to the same extent and counter it.

From the previous two games the missions are also once again varied, can last you a while, and the AI can be dubious when you're unprepared, if not a little clumsy around the newly introduced slopes and hills, but you'll soon learn their routines and will be yearning for multiplayer - The true bread and butter of the game.

Modders have gone to town since it was released and patched to 1.9 - Maps. Game Modes. Entire campaign edits. New units, new customisation... Hell, they even have Tiberium Sun mods which adds the old units into the game.


Like I said. Sad to see its the last 'good' game of the series.
Command & Conquer 4 'Twilight' ruined the finale to the story by ripping out the core gameplay mechanics, making maps capture-the-flag esque and point control, while plummeting the player into a final 'thats all folks!' with the ending.
If you want a true C&C game, get Tiberum Dawn or Sun. If you want an enjoyable 3d C&C game, get this, or Red Alert 3.

I loved Red Alert when it came out, I bought this and it seems pretty close to it so far. Standard EA closing servers. I love that company, they are so great for gaming.

This and Kanes wrath is easily the best game in the series, if you played any of the other C&C titles, this is the one you should get first hand. not more to say here other than you cannot go wrong with this game, it's great, I totally recommend it.

Hands down the best RTS game of all time... such a shame there is no master server anymore (thanks EA ya pricks) still play the sh*t out of skirmish when I'm bored. Unfortunately, It's turned 7 now and it's time to say goodbye :(. Hopefully the makers of the next Tiberium wars game realise this 'hit the nail on the head' when it come to the perfect RTS.

This game is a classic yet still golden. There are 3 factions in the game which are, GDI the so-called "US Military", Nod a rebellious group, and Scrin an alien group. My favorite is Nod due to the fact that you can launch nukes and special forces. I'm recommending this game also because the price isn't bad and most of the buyers and satisfied about the game overall. Since the multiplayer in the game is shut down for me I use Evolve a LAN program similar to Hamachi but better.

The last command & conquer i actually enjoyed. The story was well made but I mostly played the online due to i own it on the xbox360. If you like rts games than this game is for you! Ion cannons are what makes you powerful!

One of the best C&C games so far, I have to honestly say that this game is twice better than Starcraft 2 and trillion times better than Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm. I used to be a Starcraft player, but Blizzard ruined the ♥♥♥♥ out of every ♥♥♥♥ing thing. So I changed my perspective on RTS genre, Westwood Studios is the best RTS maker of all times.
Their game may not be so competitve like Blizzard, but they are fast pace but FUN!
Competitiveness ruined the gaming industry, where it aimed only for FUN. C&C Tiberium War in this case exceeds most of its predecessors by being either fun (spamming units) and competitive. The AI in this game is very excellent and harder than Starcraft 2. The first time I played the campaign at easy level, the bots beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of me. In the skirmish game, the bots if you chose Steamroller, they will roll over you if in easy level.

Although the multiplayer is no longer supported by EA, you still can go to online forums and download software to help the multiplayer section.

The game is best at:
- Best cinematics (Blizzard looks cheesy, but Westwood looks serious)
- Amazing actors
- Stunning graphics
- Great soundtrack
- Large gamesize, it is beyond my expectation of previous games
- Dangerous AIs, they simply focus on wiping your most dangerous units
- Many special abilities
- Challenging missions with many bonuses that hardly find in any RTS game
- Best RTS Campaign of the decade (C&C games always pull me to be serious in watching briefing, tempting)
- Great Balance system (This new C&C fixed the unit spamming in Red Alert 2)
- Best modding community secondly after Skyrim Nexus (It composed of many foreigners, they are amazing)
- Tiberium Essence! The best mod that made this game perfect, you need to download it on DB.

Some flaws:
- Many special abilities (Old Red Alert 2 is easier, this new thing is quite hard to use)
- Chaotic graphic ( I feel the graphic is a little too oversaturated)
- AIs are quite dumb at pathfinding
- Still having some balancing flaws from the old C&C
- Harvester!
- Still no CABAL from Firestorm Crisis, I was waiting for an expansion on such amazing AI villain in video game history, yeah, ♥♥♥♥ EA.

Score: 96/100
Greatly Amazing, but underrated.

Starcraft 2 should have been 78/100 instead of 91/100 on reviewing websites. Tiberium War just bought me back to the Command and Conquer franchise, let's hope there will be a fifth installment.
