how many games from the C&C Ultimate collection are actually worth playing?

#1The_Pig_HostagePosted 8/29/2013 1:24:19 PM
Command & Conquer
Command & Conquer The Covert Operations
Command & Conquer Red Alert
Command & Conquer Red Alert Counterstrike
Command & Conquer Red Alert The Aftermath
Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun
Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun Firestorm
Command & Conquer Red Alert 2
Command & Conquer Red Alert Yuri's Revenge
Command & Conquer Renegade
Command & Conquer Generals
Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour
Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars
Command & Conquer 3 Kane’s Wrath
Command & Conquer Red Alert 3
Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Uprising
Command & Conquer 4 Tiberian Twilight

$8.99 on amazon. seems like a crazy deal, but I'm guessing that many of these don't hold up today or are redundant.

Red Alert 2 is amazing. Just sayin'.

They are all worth playing. The big issue is you may have to work around with compatibility. After all the original C&C was made for windows... what? 95? Maybe DOS?

i think the must-plays are red alert 1-2(with expansions) + generals and zero hour.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

I bought the C&C collection and I was surprised it worked well with windows 8, the only issue is the older games resolution is tiny, but they are mods to fix that.

The Ultimate Collection has the games preconfigured to work on current OS's.

C&C Renegade is actually fun, but it's not really an RTS so if you're just looking for RTS games, skip it... also it's made back in the 90's so everything about it is the epitome of cheese... but unless you're taking it seriously that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I can agree with this... RA 3 didn't really do it for me....

i somewhat agree....you can 'skip' renegade

but if you get engaged in the story enough then play c&c 4 single player

honestly C&C4 isn't that bad of a game...it is certainly different.....i certainly enjoyed the multiplayer BETA but when i got the game....i kinda felt meh about playing the online multiplayer part

ps,

i would however would have liked it if they just stuck to the original formula...ya know with the base building and all

I just play 3, and that's all I need. They're so similar to me that I don't need any of the others.
