"A mixed CNC game"
Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun was the actual sequel to Westwood's Command & Conquer (Red Alert was the prequel). Now this a mixed game since not all CNC fans like it. Red Alert and the first CNC game was loved by all but his game just split the people up. As for me, I don't think it's a bad game. The story line is actually good. Anyways on to the review. The story line takes place in 2030. GDI is now the world's defender against Tiberium since Kane is dead and Nod has been disbanded into sub fractions. However General Solomon (commander of GDI) gets a surprise visit by Kane (who was presumed dead). Kane quickly restores Nods power and gets ready to do war with GDI again and to try to conquer the world.
Game Play 7/10: Every single rts type of game makes the player build a base and kill his enemies and this game not any different. The only difference that seperates this rts game from the others is that it's made by west wood and they seem to be able to come up with more interesting units then most games like the disrupter tank. Tiberium again kills infantry however this time it urns them into Tiberium creatures. There are now Tiberium veins and blue versions of it. Nod is the only group that seems to have kept some of it's old technology while GDI seems to have up graded dramatically with mecha units.
Controls 9/10: Like most rts games, the mouse is your friend. Same thing with hot keys unless if you don't use hot keys.
Music 5/10: The music is not really enjoyable since it seems to be mostly depression music (or at least it seems the loop sequence only plays the emo type of music).
Length 8/10: Each side in the game has 15 missions so that adds up to 30. The only real fun missions (in my opinion) is GDI's last mission since you see old GDI and Nod buildings and you get to controls old mammoth tanks (the most famous unit in the CNC universe). Also again you can set the difficulty on easy, normal or hard.
Most people would get this game just because of the story line. So if you really want to know what happens next in the CNC universe then get it. If not then you are not missing much.
