About This Game

Red Alert 3: Uprising features four new mini-campaigns, giving players a deeper dive into the storyline's of the Soviets, the Allies, the Empire of the Rising Sun and a unique campaign centered on the origins of everyone’s favorite psionic Japanese schoolgirl commando, Yuriko Omega. Set in the aftermath of Red Alert 3, the Soviet Union is still reeling from its crushing defeat. The Empire of the Rising Sun is desperately trying to regain both honor and identity, and the seemingly victorious Allies find themselves in the midst of corruption and deceit within their own ranks.


How will the defeated Soviets react to the occupation and the presence of FutureTech, the mysterious company contracted by the Allies to develop new technologies in the Soviets’ homeland? How will the humiliated Empire of the Rising Sun rise up and defend itself against the former Soviet commanders who have invaded their territory in a post-war land grab? How will the Allied occupational forces quash the uprising of the former Imperial commanders? And who is the mysterious Japanese commando Yuriko Omega?

  • Four New Mini-Campaigns – Battle your way through four all-new mini-campaigns featuring classic fast, furious, and fun C&C action. New stories and missions will cover all three factions, plus experience an entirely new, dungeon crawler campaign centered on the Empire’s commando, Yuriko Omega. Find out what the dubious tech company FutureTech is producing in their secret research facility, how the Soviets and the Empire deal with their inferior situation and witness Yuriko Omega’s rise from captive to deadly assassin
  • Challenge the Best! – How will you fight gigantic parachuting war bears, falling satellites, or an entire army of Yurikos? Can you beat the par time in each challenge? The new Commander’s Challenge mode puts you right in the action of 50 grueling challenges against 9 commanders from different territories and factions. Gamers skilled enough to make it through the daunting gauntlet will gradually unlock new units and find tougher opponents in a true test of RTS skills
  • The Largest Cast in the History of Video Games Gets Bigger and Better – Command & Conquer’s trademark live-action videos return with stunning HD cinematics telling the deep story of Uprising. Fan favorites like Gemma Atkinson and Ivana Milicevic will make their return to Red Alert, alongside Malcolm McDowell, wrestling legend Ric Flair, Jamie Chung, Holly Valance, Julia Ling and many more!
  • New, Over-the-Top Units – Uprising brings you 11 new over-the-top units in true Red Alert fashion. Use the agile Archer Maidens with their dangerous energy arrows, the fully amphibious Grinder that will crush everything in its path or the giant Giga-Fortress, a flying cyborg head s bigger than any other unit you have seen in Red Alert. Freeze your enemies with the Cryo Legionnaire or poison them with the radioactive liquid of the Desolator Trooper

The worst.
The only cool things are the new units and Yuriko camaign.
But the Upheaval mod for RA3 adds the new units.
So €9,99 for this is totally not worth it.

Honestly, I love this game. I own this and the normal Red Alert 3.

However the only downside I have in this DLC is the fact there's no multiplayer. Not even Lan.

really i think this shoud've been a cheap DLC, instead we have got a "standalone" game that has hardly any changes to the last, i think that instead of buying Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 you should buy this instead because no units are taken away, the only thing you'd miss is the campaign, but if you have already bought Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, don't buy this unless you're a real fan who want to know the campaign and play with the new units, which you will get bored of

well even though it's slightly better than the normal Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 it really isn't anything special, first of all there is no multiplayer and unlike Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 there is no patch that you can install (that i know of)

the campaign is very short, nothing like the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 but it is alright

there are a few interesting units added since the original and slightly better graphics

The game is good or would be...if it had multiplayer. But I cannot in conscience recommend a C&C game that has no multiplayer. I just can't. After a while the AI just gets dull to fight against. If it had multiplayer(it used to) I would give it 5/5 stars.

I needed this. in my opinion, the hardest installment in the c&c universe on default settings, and a treat for long-time fans. challenge mode can get extremely difficult at times.

recommended for experienced c&c players.

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising, is a standalone expansion to Red Alert 3. The story takes place after the events of Red Alert 3. In campaign mode, no matter which campaign you choose, the Empire of the Rising Sun, and the Soviets have surrendered to the Allies, if you aren't a fan of the allies, you might be disappointed. The campaigns seem a little short too, with only a couple of missions per campaign, unlike previous Red Alert games. This would have been better as a dlc to the original Red Alert 3, rather than a standalone. There are a bunch of new mapsfor skirmish mode, and some new weapons as well as units you can play around with. Uprising, also comes with the Commanders Challenge, which could be purchased as an additional stand alone, but without the campaign mode of uprising. I have a mixed-bag of feelings about this game, but I am a fan of the Red Alert series overall. Because of the new content and the commander's challenge mode, which has way more content then the campaigns, I think Red Alert 3: Uprising redeems itself. As I said, I think it would have made a better DLC to Red Alert 3, than a stand alone, but it's still a decent play.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

NOTE:
Some of the PROS and CONS of my Red Alert 3 Review are still applicable in the expansion. You can read it here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/miyumiayase/recommended/17480

INTRODUCTION:
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Uprising is the stand-alone expansion to the RTS game 'Red Alert 3', which has been released by Electronic Arts in 2008. This expansion features new units, new campaign missions, new skirmish maps and new live action characters (most notably, professional wrestler Richard Morgan "Ric" Fliehr)

The story takes place where the events of Red Alert 3 resulted in a canonical Allied Victory. The Soviet campaign involves the Soviets attempting to stop the European Union President's plans to remove the Soviet Union from history with the help of an Allied Military Contractor called FutureTech. The Allied campaign focuses on pacifying remaining Imperial Commanders who still resist allied occupation of Japan. The Empire campaign is based on defeating Soviet Commanders who seeks to have a land grab of Imperial Territory while the Empire is vulnerable. A special campaign is also available where the player takes on the role of Imperial Commando Yuriko Omega and her origin story.

PROS:
+ New Campaign Missions but...(See CON #1)
+ Yuriko Campaign is an interesting twist to the C&C formula although borrowing heavily from StarCraft's 'single unit' missions
+ New units that are both powerful and fun to use
+ Fun new game mode: 'Commander's Challange'
+ Stand-alone

CONS:
- Short campaign with under developed plots
- Campaign coop (even the coop AI) was removed
- New units caused severe balance issues that resulted in...
- Removal of Multiplayer, both LAN and Online
- Removal of Skirmish live action cutscenes (which I found very entertaining in the base game)
- Live action cutscenes were lazily made
- Forces players to play the Soviet Campaign first before unlocking the 2 other campaigns (which was not the case with Red Alert 3)
- Expensive for an expansion with several features removed from the base game (like multiplayer)

CONCLUSION:
NICE LITTLE EXPANSION but does not live up to the quality or scale of Red Alert 2's expansion; Yuri's Revenge. Red Alert 3 Uprising is not a bad game if you like the single player experience like myself . Despite having said that, the game feels as though it was rushed with many of its elements (particularly the Campaign), being half baked.

The removal of Multiplayer, caused by poorly balanced units, is one of the greatest sins anyone can do to an RTS game, even if its just an expansion. This prompts me to say that Red Alert 3 Uprising does not warrant its full price considering that it's currently priced the same as the Base game. BUY IT on a SALE or BUNDLE but NEVER at FULL PRICE.

Why do I still RECOMMEND this game? Well I particularly enjoyed the Commander's Challenge (more than the Campaign actually) It gave me several hours of fun. I DO NOT RECOMMENDED this game if you're looking to play Multiplayer.

7/10

First thing first. It DOSEN'T SUPPORT multiplayer. If you want play on-line, buy the red alert 3.

It has "challenge mode" which is fun and really hard. Well, I cleared all the infamous AOE3 and AOE2 campaigns on hard and that's nothing compared to this one. It will drive you crazy if you're going to clear "on time"missions. (The AI is insane, you can belive me) You're going to think a lot while playing it :)

Great challenge mode indeed but personally, the campaign was'nt that good.

If you looking for intense and challenging game than you may go for it. Otherwise you may be better off not buying it.

Red Alert 3 Uprising is one of those games you either love or hate. I for one love it, and let me tell you exactly why.

Let's get this out of the way first; this stand alone expansion has no multiplayer component. None. Not even coop. There are some unit in this game that upset the balance to such a degree that it would be unethical to let anyone play against one another. If you can get over this, then you'll like the game. If you really need this mulitplayer thing, then you might want to pass.

With that out of the way, let me describe Uprising for you. Uprising is an exercise in scenario building. It tries to create the coolest kinds of single player levels seen in RTS ever with ridiculous units and abilities that make a game of Warcraft seem tame. Image transforming tanks, ice beams, rockets everywhere, robots, tanks that eat buildings and giant floating heads with death rays that make any unit or building completely worthless. It does not end there. Each civ gets a few new units. The allies get to parade their new giant gunship and otherworldly tanks, as well as freeze troopers. The soviets have to do with a complete hack of an infantry killer, and some fast mechs. No, for the really cool stuff you need to check with the empire, who come rolling onto the scene with laser archers, robots with swords and the aforementioned flying death ray. Plenty of cool stuff to go around and no stupid balance that is holding any of it back.

The game features three gamemodes. The campaigns, that come with some really impressive production value. General skirmishes. Finally, the commanders challenge. Where you have to overcome extremely strong AI opponents with limited units. Each victory gives you access to new units to use in your conquest. It is extremely hard, and fiendishly challenging, but funny and rewarding.

I can reccomend this expansion. It's a blast while it lasts, and it provides some of that cartoonish fun that you don't get in any of the newer RTS games. If this is on sale, just shell those two bucks and indulge in some robot vs tank tomfoolery. You know you want to.

I tried the first game of Red Alert(Strategy ofcourse), many years ago...
I was addicted to it and i just couldn't stop, from that game i'm even remembering my life!
This game brings those memories back to me as it was yesterday that happened. One of the best strategy games i have ever tried on my life! If you like COD/Battlefield games you will not enjoy this one, but if you love strategy games, this one is just for you!
Also the characters are real actors, so you won't see any game made face but real face. For those who are new on gaming, this game could be just a real life strategy!
Good luck to whoever tries this one.
I'm strongly recommending it.
