[GS] C&C: Red Alert 3 Impression

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 


Quote:
It's been quite a while since we last checked on the Command & Conquer: Red Alert games, but maybe the time is right for a new chapter. The classic formula of real-time strategy games is built on harvesting resources, constructing a base, and churning out armies to crush your opponents before they can do the same, but this unusual strategy series was built around an alternate history. This is a world in which the so-called Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States never ended, and in which all the potential of experimental technology from that era, from the Manhattan Project to Tesla coils, was actually realized as devastating (and in some cases, fantastical) weapons on the battlefield. The series is set to return with Red Alert 3, a new game built on the modern Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars engine, but with all the over-the-top enthusiasm of a summer blockbuster popcorn movie. We recently had a chance to take a look at the game in motion.

Knew what Tiberium Wars and Kane Wrath really missed? BOATS! RA3 looks awesome. Finally, boats again.

Never was a big fan of C&C, saw a clip of some naval combat in C&C Red Alert 3 the other day and I got really excited. I love naval combat in RTS games, when I play Supreme Commander I always love to play the naval oriented maps.

I'm not so sure I'm too excited about RA3. I loved C&C3. Yes, i missed the boats. However, the graphics, as nice as they are, remind me too much of cartoons. Not what I'm lookin' for. + Rep for good link though.

Its a great game, and Im looking foward to play it. Damn how I love C&C.

I did notice an error on the article: The engine is the C&C Renegade engine, remember that game? and It was first used as an RTS engine with Generals and then on it's amazing follow up: C&C 3

The Sage engine that they used for Generals? I thought they made a completely new engine for C&C3?

I got lucky. When I went out to buy a copy of C&C3 KW I got a free beta key for Red Alert 3. But this engine reminds me a lot about how SC2 looks like.
