The game all students played before their exams. Me and my relationship with Red Alert has always been a special one; this game was a staple of the Net Cafes that were all the buzz in the late 90s and early 2000s, in many parts of Europe! By then, Command & Conquer: Red Alert was no longer a fresh game, however, it was always one that got a lot of playthroughs, along with Brood War, especially when a lot of better things (namely, studying!) should have been attempted instead! But we just loved this, it's brand of simple and effective real time strategy, it's need for learned building sequences to create a good base fast, and the skirmishes that needed to be very well calculated, and at times very fun! Graphically, Command & Conquer: Red Alert was not some revelation, it was a bit dusty even as it came out, but nobody really cared; because the gameplay was really the bomb, especially with caffeinated drinks around and lots of time to spare! So, have it around, you never know when you got to betray a productive task for some Red Alert madness!
A strategy masterpiece. Definitely one of the best games from the Command and Conquer game series, Red Alert is the first game in the series that is set in the Red Alert alternate universe and serves as a prequel to the original C&C game. It tells the story of the time before the events of the first game took place, when the ferocious Allied Forces battled a very aggressive war against the Soviet Union over the control of the European mainland. The game was revolutionary and extremely more advanced than any real time strategy game of the time. Not only is this game one of the first to introduce competitive online play, it is also one of the best when it comes to user interface, ease of control and complexity and detail of gameplay. You can't just win the scenario by eliminating the enemy - most often your win is determined by many other circumstances. The scenarios always come with an interesting back story which helps you to relate to the game and enjoy it even more. The graphics are absolutely outstanding for that time and the same can be said about the wonderful soundtrack. If there ever was a great game that is well worth everybody's time, Red Alert is certainly on of them. Highly recommended!
