Base building is important to me also. I love having multiple bases collecting resources with massive amounts of defenses like in Tiberium Sun.

I didn't mind C&C3, although I only yar'ed it so never played it online, same with Red Alert 3. Was not bad.. Definately nothing compared to the first C&C and Red Alert.
My guess is that everyone is awaiting SC2...

I hate it to be honest. They messed with the classic formula and it just doesn't feel right to me :/

Seems the general consensus of C&C4 is that its just plain a$$. I've been reading posts on a y'arr forum of people that have the y'arr full retail copy and they are disappointed to say the least. Someone that actually bought it said the best part of the game was when he returned it to the store lol. I was looking forward to another C&C, but after reading posts about it, I doubt I am going to get this. I mean no base building? WTF... that's the best part of an RTS game. And nothing like ending the series with a shitty final game eh EA?

I was an avid C&C gamer. I loved all the series except for RA3, which I thought was too cartoony and silly. I even bought the C&C The First Decade DVD, which just sits on my desk :P Gone are the classics that Westwood developed. After EA bought them out, they ruined the series! I would love them to revamp the classic with today's graphics, but I doubt that will ever happen.

I tried playing it and for me the DRM and generally idiotic premise succeeded in destroying the series.
