I’ve just finished all the campaigns of Command And Conquer 3. I must say I am pretty impressed.
I also played a bit of Supreme Commander but I didn’t really like that game and I’ve already uninstalled it.
Supreme Commander is good because:
- Huge maps. - Cool units. - Strategic zoom is really helpful. - Multiplayer. - But bad because: - Boring maps. - Though you can build hundreds of units, they are all so tiny… - Repetitive missions… always the same. Command And Conquer has: - Kane! - Kane! (Yes, he counts for two points!) - Full-motion video is back and you can’t help but love the cheesy acting. - Nice detailed maps. - A superb engine. The maps load incredibly fast, and there is no huge framerate drop - ever! Even with a lot of units on screen… how do they do it? (Supreme Commander takes ages to load.) - Cool units. - Fun multiplayer. - Did I mention Kane? - Spectacular effects. It does need better patching though (especially for people without high-end systems). On my system however the game ran like a dream in 1600x1200 with all options on highest (except AA, which is level 1). However, if you adored Total Annihilation, you will like Supreme Commander. If you loved C&C, you’ll love Tiberium Wars. I liked both, but I do prefer to play a game of CC3.
