    Great Game

    I spent many hours as a teenager playing this game. The campaigns aren't quite as fun however the skirmishes are a blast. I spent many of nights playing this game until the crack of dawn and getting screamed at by my par... Read Full Review

    Good in Many Ways, but you can see problems.

    In 1995 a group known as Westwood created a great, wonderfully balanced game known as Command and Conquer. The next year they made a prequel. This prequel was going to have the same, fast-paced gameplay of the original. ... Read Full Review

    The "sequel" to Command & Conquer & also the best in series.

    When Red Alert was released, the RTS Genre was already established by Command & Conquer, 1 year earlier. In Red Alert, instead of GDI vs NOD we have Allies vs Soviets.Again, a 2 way war battle that can get boring.Red Al... Read Full Review

    C&C Red Alert keeps the great RTS style of gameplay that the original C&C has in a creative alternate timeline.

    C&C Red Alert was a great RTS experience for me.It's set in an alternate timeline where WW2 never happened(I will let you discover why for yourself)and the Soviet Union(lead by Stalin)became the major threat to the world... Read Full Review

    Very awesome classic it is the best rts classic overall

    Command and Conquer Red Alert is to my understanding a classic one of the fathers of the rts franchise. The easy controls is nice and sweet. The skirmish games as far as i am concerned is the first of its kind. The campa... Read Full Review

    Still the best C&C of the entire series

    Even with RA2, Tiberian Sun, Tiberium Wars, Generals, and all the other C&C games, Red Alert remains as the best one to date. C&C introduced us to the RTS genre, but it was not without flaws. Red Alert addresses most o... Read Full Review

    Hard to imagine it being better.

    This is probably the first game I ever played on PC(15 years ago, and I'm glad I did). In fact, I ended up buying the Command and Conquer ten-game pack recently, just to have another crack at it years later. The missi... Read Full Review
