    Where it all started

    I personally never played Command and Conquer when it first released. The game never really appealed to me. Recently I decided to pick up the Command and Conquer: The First Decade set after trying the Tiberium Wars demo ... Read Full Review

    Perhaps the greatest RTS ever made.

    This classic RTS vastly improved the concept introduced by Westwood's earlier title Dune II: Battle for Arrakis. Command & Conquer follows the fictional story based in modern times (1995) of a war between the Global Defe... Read Full Review

    The game that started the RTS genre

    I remember C&C being one of the first games I bought on a PC, and I was very impressed. C&C gave birth to the RTS genre in gaming due to its unit balance and interesting single player campaign. Lets start with the si... Read Full Review

    A legendary game, that marked the origin of RTS games...

    If I`m not mistaken, Command and Conquer was my very first RTS games ever played, and out of doubt, one of the best. When a gamer think about RTS, I guess 1st what comes to mind is Command and Conquer... This game, rel... Read Full Review

    This game is an apparent attempt by its maker to milk the first game for all it is worth.

    Having had a predecessor that practically made the die from which all later RTS games will be forged from, this so-called expansion pack is a very disappointing piece of recycled work. Covert Operations does not add much... Read Full Review

    C&C is the first to reliably streamline gameplay in the RTS genre.

    Where its peers strived for outlandish stories and impressive arrays of in-game models, the developers of the first Command & Conquer intended it to be the trend-starter of fast and streamlined gameplay in the market... Read Full Review

    Wish I had played this game when I was a child.

    I must say I'm an extremely big fan of the Command & Conquer franchise and I've played Red Alert and Tiberian Sun a lot during my childhood. As for now, I bought all Command & Conquer games up to Red Alert 3 (except for ... Read Full Review
