More that meets the eye, or later impression is far better that the first one.

Lets skip the technical issues, like graphics, sound. Everything is alright there. Nice graphics and art design, on both sides.
The most important part of this game is multiplayer, which is played usually 5vs5. Sure you can do 1vs1, but this game should be played 2vs2 at least. One team spawns as GDI, another as NOD. Its really a shame, that you can't create custom teams, it would add a better variety to the game.
But either way, gameplay is solid. It reminds a bit Dawn of war 2 series. But I think that the creators, took ideas from Battlefield series more. You play Domination, capture point, killing enemy's earns more points, destroying crawlers get you even more points.
There are 3 classes to choose from, and each one plays differently, unlike another. Assault - specializes in tank and heavy land warfare, their units are tough, and powerful. So if you do like charging forward, this class is just right for it. Defense - can build turrets and infantry. Not so powerful in open field, but devastating, when backed by a crawler and turrets. The only class that can build super weapons. Suited well, for those who like bunker up in their push for control points. Support - aircraft and supportive global skills. The only airborne base (pre-deployed), focuses on aircrafts while suporting others with powers like, demoralizing, EMP, healing and etc.
There are also many tactical choices, how you can you use your units. If this tactics is not working, try another one. Units and buildings are free, it only takes time to build them. (support regenerate its power, like "mana") So in a way, the game is more forgetful than Dawn of war 2. Even if you lost your crawler, you will get another one in a short time, AND you can change again, which class to play with. So if a frontal attack is not working, try building nuke or ion cannon to sweep the enemy. Or try aircraft with global powers. There re many options how to play this game, that's why I am giving it a high score, cause the game is just not appreciated enough by most players.
