Command and Conquer 3 - Tiberium Wars

This is the latest in the stellar C&C series and quite frankly it is shaping up to be the best in the series yet.  This game brings back the popular character Kane and has really been improved over an already great format. There are so many cool things that have been brought back like the amazing movies that dominate the game with real life characters that make the in game action all the more riveting. 

Of course the acting is as hammy as ever but still helps make the overall experience something to be thoroughly enjoyed. The usual suspects are back again fighting the battle that we are used to, however this time round we have the introduction of an alien race, The Scrin. Tiberium has become a key to the future of technology on the planet and the race is on to beat your opponent and also harness the technologies available to you.  

Fighting across the planet, players will be confronted with scenes both recognisable and remote locations that are bizarrely changed with regards to the future environments and the way that the world has been ravaged. Itís really odd to see them in the shape that they are in but at the same time pretty cool to be battling in them. 

Something to consider about this title, especially if you have been a fan in the past is that itís a lot faster than previous games in the series. You really need to keep on your toes and get your backside into gear quickly and set up those tiberium refineries and amass power as this game is not going to be as gentle as others in the series and if you donít look after things constantly you will pay the price. 

Powerups are abundant throughout the game and the way that the AI reacts to your moves is pretty uncanny. As you play through the particular scenarios, you will find yourself playing very different games for each of the races. The thing that many will find interesting is playing Scrin as they are a different kettle of fish with tech that fans will not be used to. Itís a stack of fun and really ups the ante a lot in terms of gametime.  

This is a game that will take you a heck of a long time to play and possibly more than one go through each race to get the most out of each one. The user interface has seen an overhaul as well, bringing back parts of previous games that worked well and integrating them with the new look. This has enabled the ability to play the game at a much faster rate that is appropriate considering the speed that is a major part of this title. 

This is a damn good-looking title and effects used on the game are awesome. Sounds are handled extremely well during the game and you can tell that a lot of effort has been put into making the game sound just right. The quality of the cutscenes carries over into the game to make it one amazing gameplay experience. 

Tiberium Wars also supports a healthy online mode as well that fully carries on the speed of the single player experience with leaderboards and the like. The modes available are pretty straightforward but we found that this lead to frantic fast paced games that were a ton of fun. 

This is a strategy title that would have to be one of the most fun that weíve played in some time. The price tag is well worth the price of admittance and you will be happily playing this game until the next C&C comes out. This is an EA flagship title and once again they have shown it with this exceptional release.
