About This Game

Behold disciples of Nod, for the end is soon upon us. Electronic Arts’ award-winning and best-selling Tiberium saga is coming to a powerful conclusion with Command & Conquer 4, which will introduce a multitude of innovations to the classic fast and fluid Command & Conquer gameplay, while retaining the core compulsions that fans have come to love over the series’ history.
It is the year 2062 and humanity is at the brink of extinction. Tiberium, the mysterious, alien crystalline structure that has infested Earth for decades and served as the primary reason for years of relentless conflict between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of Nod, is close to rendering the planet uninhabitable. Mankind is on the verge of extinction when Kane, Nod’s prophetic leader, emerges from seclusion to deliver GDI the message that he has developed a system that could control Tiberium and harness its power. But he cannot build this "Tiberium Control Network" without GDI’s cooperation. Thus, the two opposing factions – GDI and Nod – inevitably find themselves in desperation for the same cause: to stop Tiberium from extinguishing mankind.
After 15 years, the network is nearly complete, Tiberium is under strict control and our revitalized, newly terraformed planet is on the cusp of a new age of prosperity and progress. It is then that the world’s citizens begin to seriously ponder why Kane chose to help, and what will he want in return. These questions and more lead to the dramatic final act of the Tiberium saga.
With a multitude of innovative new features to the fast and fluid C&C gameplay, Command & Conquer 4 offers players an entirely new way to play C&C. An all-in-one mobile base, persistent player progression across all game modes that is constantly updated in a real-time online profile, a 3-class system for each of the two factions, co-operative play, and a 5v5 objective-based multiplayer mode that promotes teamwork and social interaction, make Command & Conquer 4 unlike any other C&C experience.
  • The Epic Conclusion of the Saga - Kane returns in the thrilling conclusion to one of gaming’s longest running storylines, told through gritty live-action cinematics. Choose to take on the campaign solo or team up with a friend and play cooperatively!
  • Choose Your Class - Choose from three unique classes from both GDI and Nod, each with its own specialized units and powers, for more strategic and combative options that match your play style of choice! Offense, Defense, or Support classes—which will you pick?
  • Always on the Move - For the first time ever in the C&C series: a massive, mobile, all-in-one base, The Crawler, lets you pack up and move your base with your army for a new layer of strategic depth. Build units as you move across the field, and deploy whenever and wherever you choose!
  • Persistent Player Progression - The more enemy units you destroy, the more experience points you earn to progress your player profile! Level up to unlock new units, powers, and upgrades to make your army more powerful!
  • Team Up and Take the Battle Online - Join your fellow commanders online and tackle your opponents in the biggest C&C multiplayer to date, featuring 5 vs 5 objective-based battles! Choose your favorite class and take online strategy action to the next level as you conquer objectives while pummeling your enemies. The all-new party system lets you move with your party of friends from one online battle to the next.

Hilariously bad.

-Nothing like any of the other C&C games
-always online DRM required for singleplayer
-Kicks you out of the game if your connection drops ONE packet (yes even in singleplayer)
-they never bothered fixing any of the issues (I got the game when it came out)
-This is what happens when suits try to design a game

PLEASE TO ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN THIS GAME. DO NOT BUY IT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!
i bought this game thinking that it would bring back some really good memories of the C&C series and due to the fact i played Tiberium Wars i thought this game would be exactly like that but i was so so wrong... Please... I waisted 20$ bucks on this game. Dont just watch the videos thinking its so cool with the classes and all but its not. Please dont waist your money on this Poor excuse for a C&C game. Go play the oldies. At least those games had style to em.

started playing command and conquer since it came out in '95. this one is HORRIBLE. i was so jazzed up to see what would come next in the story after tiberium wars and kane's wrath and i was left with the utmost feeling of dissatisfaction. videos are cheezy and look poorly filmed. previous cnc games' vids felt almost like a movie. no base building? no harvesting? ea took a giant ♥♥♥♥ on this franchise and totally used the name of command and conquer to sell this turd under false pretenses. this is the worst thing to come out of ea; even worse than origin (which is saying something). i don't normally write reviews for games but this one was so crappy that it compelled me to tell people to stay away. STAY AWAY. erase this game from the saga just like indiana jones 4. 0/10.

Do not buy this, I have doubts that such a game even exists and that this is not elaborately programmed malware - I blacked out shortly after it finished installing and when I woke up my computer was on fire and the screen had a socket wrench jammed through it.

Can't even play it. The login is not working even though I put in the right password and there's no password reset in the log in menu. This is stupid. At least I only wasted $5 during a sale.

If you liked Command and Conquer 3 Tiberian wars you will hate this. You can't build bases like you could before and unit count is low. I'd rather play the ones off the PS1

Terrible game..not worth the money and never will be. Took the old base building formula of ALL previous c&c games and threw it out the window for no damn reason 1/10 = P.O.S.

Came back to play this after a while because of fond memories.

Alas, I was confusing it was CnC3: Tiberian Wars which is a far superior game.

Poor storyline, poor gameplay. Aviod.

Let's go kick some scrin butt! What? They're not in this one?! Why in the world would you introduce a new race and then the next game just steal it away?! Okay, Pros and Cons. Pros: Nothing. Cons: Everything. Believe me when I say this game is complete.. er.. poop. It completely takes away the drain based economy that everyone loves and replaced it with unit population and too rare tiberium crystals for upgrades. You cannot construct buildings unless you choose the defender MCV. That's another thing! Different MCVs, and multiple lives for them! Well, I hope some people agree with me, bye.

This game is just a grind. You have to work to permanently unlock things that you would generally unlock and upgrade every game in previous installments of the game, so if you play online you're guarenteed to get steamrolled by someone who has played longer.

The game offers different spawn ships that only allow certain units to be built with each and are supposed to follow certain playstyles but ultimately just end up limiting the game and the amount of fun it could have offered.

I love the C&C series, but this game has had some horrible decisions go into it. If you want an RTS, I'd reccomend picking up either C&C Tiberium Wars 3: Kane's Wrath, or C&C Red Alert 3, as both are top notch games from the same series, and infinitely better than this waste of code.
