Default command and conquer 4

i got the free cd from ea (i wont tell you how)

drm is really annoying tho... but i wonder... do you play the game?

i played this for 2 weeks... (24 hours) to fill completely level of 20... its not cool...

its not true rts imho... and very very unbalance units... its the best strategy to win is win the tcn and protect it... :\

i just like gdi offensive very much... nod offensive really sucks... but i hate to play against nod (defensive) because of hackers love my mammoths and tanks...

air support seems popular choice for overall units because i had a hard time to attack aircrafts with my offensive units (except gdi titans... really werid)


if anyone plays.. then lets me know... my nickname is "...AL"

I made a horrible mistake. When C&C3 was announced I followed every tidbit of pre release information there was, and when I got the game I found that I took away some of the excitment because I already knew about everything.

For C&C 4 I chose to completely ignore all pre release information so that I would experience the game completely fresh for myself. This made me miss the horrible train wreck of a game they made. I didn't even finish it. I think I played Tiberian Sun for 3 years, loved that game so much. I played C&C 3 for one year, really enjoyed it, especially the shoutcasting. I didn't even finish C&C 4.

Terrible story, terrible gameplay, huge dissappointment. It was even a PC exclusive so I thought it would be epic...

The C&C games have goon down the hill. The last great one was Tiberium Sun and its expansion. Generals was pretty good too. All the latest are either mediocre or just plain suck. Wish Westwood was still around.

I really liked Red Alert 3 but I am not an RTS nut. Never even played a C&C game so... what do I know? I would probably not buy this simply because of the DRM though.
