    Command & Conquer

    The chatter of minigunners firing. The throaty roar of advanced guard towers launching missiles. The hiss of flame tanks spraying. The foreboding, sinister hum as the obelisk of light charged up, before an angry pulse of... Read Full Review

    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

    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
