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).

The last of the Command & Conquer games that made it a true C&C game. I've played this game time and time again to always enjoy the game play and story line.

This is a must have for any strategy fan and the last great C&C coupled with Kane's Wrath. Don't waste time playing Tiberium Twilight

With 200+ hours on this account for this game; I'll make it quicker than I want it to be and I'll be providing a TL;DR at the bottom.

This game is beautiful. No, not just because of the graphics since that does not make a game great. I'll admit that being made in 2007: the graphics do hold very well to this very day. I'm talking about how the game feels to play, how much lore that you can unfold in this game and a very important point I will bring up later on.

The game itself is very easy to pick up and learn the basics such as what units do what, what your base does and many other things. As you progress through the story; you'll meet bonus objectives that you can complete for a different medal at the end (great for you completionists). The campaigns can have some very challenging moments for newer players but it will make you do what you're supposed to do: Come up with a strategy to win.

Notice that I said campaigns. You can play the GDI (Global Defense Initiative), NOD campaign and a short Scrin campaign. The last being unlocked once you have completed both of the other two campaigns.

This game supports free building (allowing you to build almost anywhere on the map except impassable terrain), there is no unit limit and there is some decent to good balance in this game.

Now, onto that point I mentioned earlier: It's the community. The C&C community has been part of me throughout my childhood and still is. People have constantly pushed out custom maps that have gamemodes for them such as No money, Art of Defense and Comp stomp. Command and Conquer Generals was my introduction to the community but not the series and I'm glad to see how much it has flourished.

If you wish to play this game online: Look into C&C Online. It's a community project that provides players to connect to their servers to play online so you can play with your friends or strangers. Downloading and installing custom maps is incredibly easy to do and can provide you more enjoyment in this game.

Now, here's another important piece of the community: Mods. There are tonnes of them that bring things from the older games or whatever the team behind the mod wanted. I've played dozens upon dozens of mods and because of that; this game has continued to be something I love to play and relax with.

TL;DR: I love this game and if you're wondering that if it is worth your time and money; I hope you do pick this amazing game up. This game has good replayability with custom maps and mods that you can find via Google.

Needless to say that this C&C fan will be giving this game a 10/10.
