I always loved C&C games as it was the first game i played on my dad's laptop
(Yes i didn't have a computer before that, just my consoles!).
That being said the only horrible C&C game for me in the entire franchise was C&C4 and a previous poster already stated why it came out as horrible as it did. That being said I had to play it just to know the end of the story
Now for people bashing EALA and saying Westwood was much better, you have to keep in mind that when EA bought Westwood, half the team became EALA and the other half made Petroglyph studio. If you buy any of the collector games (I have C&C3) the head of EALA is also mentioned as the co-founder of Westwood and other intervewees mention their past workings on C&C games.
Now in regards to this game I hope they make it a good game. The mention of Facebook and M&M though doesnt really bode well for me. I hope we dont get a strategy game that is end-turn with base building on specific areas only
Rember Dune2, followed by C&C were the originators of basebuilding RTS !
