For MP, go to the latest game in series. For SP - here comes longer story.

Many people claim that WG:EE have best SP campaigns. They are story driven and thus appears more interesting than skirmish-like ones. But there is one, massive problem existing - balance. Campaigns were not easy and thats good, since challange is part of having fun. But they are no longer just hard - many got elevated to "impossible" level due to patches, nerfs and, more importantly - massive AI buffs.

AI simply cheats, as the last try to make it "challange". It dont need recon, ignore "line of sight" rules, can replenish ammunition and fuel before your very eyes, spawn units out of thin air, stay invisible next to your own recon units and so on. Performance was boosted in latest patches, making SP campaign missions unbalanced and nearly all old guides obsolete.

There is no fun in that anymore, just frustration, abusing the system and beding the rules, simply to compete with cheating AI.

I managed to beat the game but was it something to be proud of? No, I just felt glad that this is over.

Dont believe the lies about SP campaigns. Get Red Dragon, if you want multiplayer but stay away from EE.

It can be a fun game at sometimes, but I can't even get past the 3rd damn mission because the AI in singleplayer is so god damn brutal. You may notice that a lot of reviews say this....they are not lying... this game is IMPOSSIBLE because the AI basically just sends like 10000 units over to you as soon as you spawn and knows all your units and where they are at, at all times. The game is great otherwise, but because of the AI, its not even fun to play anymore.

Pro:
Good setting - OK story
Free DLCs actually add to the game
Steam achieves
Single & multiplayer
Low system specs
Solid gameplay
Anti-cheat

Con:
Tutorial is not as good as it needs to be
Bit of a learning curve
Multiplayer is dying
A bit expensive $11 (should be 5-10)
No steam cards
AI is a bit off
No demo


Overall:
5/10 +2 Free quality DLCs, +1 story, -1 price, -1 learning curve / limited tutorial = 6/10
If your into RTS wagames, give it a try. If you can get it on sale, even better.
