    slightly disappointed at this review as the game is appauling and has completely destroyed the C&C universe and user scores seem to back up this opinion. Not worth a penny

    Well, we all have our opinions. I think it's a good review and actually covered what I wanted to know (ie graphics, gameplay etc.) and while mentioning the DRM they've not just binned the rest of the review because of it.

    Re: Reviews - Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight - Review - PC

    The score seemed very high to me given the comments?

    I'm guessing that you've rated it as if it's nothing to do with C&C, without any prejudice or preconceptions and just wanted to see how good a game it was?

    I may pick it up when it becomes real cheap just to check it out. I am fan of strategy games, and I don't mind trying something different from classic RTS. Hexus score matches other reviews: http://www.gamerankings.com/pc/96108...ght/index.html

    Re: Reviews - Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight - Review - PC

    Woooowwww.. Just had a go for 5 minutes just then, on Skirmish mode, and I just can't understand what's going on..

    This thing landed and out popped a Mammoth Mk 2 or something, and a little base thing flopped out too, then it spewed out 2 helicopters and flew away!
    What does all that mean? What the hell am I supposed to do with a Mammoth Mk 2?

    Bought through Steam.. I just don't understand what all the honeycomb stuff on the floor is, and why some of my units wouldn't move . It all seemed a bit too strange really..

    I'll give it another go later, maybe play through the campaign first.

    So the general theme is they've broken it then?

    imho the last of the C&C franchise should end up with NOD/GDI being brought to their knee's by the alien race that sent the tiberium here as a covert way of wiping out the human race so they can come take over...

    Re: Reviews - Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight - Review - PC

    71% is quite high actually, but I dont think I will go anywhere near it until becomes very cheap to buy.

    I think if you are die hard C&C fan then this game will probably get about 30% but if you are looking at it objectively, as just a new game (thats not part of a series) then 65% seems about right.

    Seriously?

    I've read a few reviews in detail and I can't honestly see what it's got in common with any previous C&C game, short of Kane.

    ok i will say that i didn't look at it objectively as i'm a big fan of the previous games, tiberian sun in particular. even that aside the campaign is short, the drm is awful and its not really an rts any more as the strategy has been taken out of it by removing base building. the one good thing was multiplayer as its quite a laugh, no real skill involved apart from spam counter units to whatever the other guy is doing and continue. reading around other comments (no doubt from more die hard fans than i am) the general consensus is the same, EA made a balls up by completely changing it away from what it was, rant over!

    Tiberian Wars had the Scrin that kinda fell into that plot.
