3.0 out of 5 stars Command and Conquer: Red Alert Review. 2 Mar 2003
Red Alert is the second in the command and conquer series from Westwood studios. I'm a big fan of the the original Command and Conquer, although I don’t think that this spin off is quite as good. However Red Alert is still a good quality game and it should please fans of the series.
Story:
The story in Red Alert while good is probably one of the weakest in the series, it centres around the soviet union under the command of Stalin invading Europe. The story takes place in an alternative reality in which Hitler was killed in the 1920s and World War 2 never occurred.
As in all command and conquer games you get a chose as playing either the good or the bad side (in this case the allies and the soviets), each has their own individual missions and story. The story is advanced after each successful mission via a series of FMV clips incorporating a cast of real actors.

Audio:
The graphical quality of red alert is comparable to the original although the layout and style of this game have been re-styled, to fit the different era in which the game takes place. The graphics like in mos command and conquer games aren't that good but they are functional.
The command and conquer series always had quite good audio with plenty of explosions, screams and gunshots, however it does get annoying when the troops keep saying the same things over and over again. The techno military style music is also quite good and suits the game well there is some march music, for example, although I did prefer some tracks from the original Command and Conquer.
Gameplay:
Game play is very much the same as the original. The game plays very well with the playstation mouse although it is still good to play with a controller.

Red Alert is a good strategy game to grace the genre. The game comes on 2 disks and you get to select whether you want to play as the Allies or The Soviets. Each side has different missions and units available. The game follows a tried and tested strategy method of collecting resources to convert into upgrading your army/base in order to complete your missions. In this game you use ore trucks to collect mineral deposits. The missions are varied such as:guard convoy, rescue Einstein, flush out the traitor etc. Furthermore, the cutscenes between the missions are enjoyable to watch. A wide range of units are available and as you progress you'll find yourself taking up war by land, sea and air. Your units are easy to control and your Soviet units have a convincing Russian accent. This game uses passwords to progress to the next mission as opposed to wasting memory card space. I found the music to be quite punchy aswell.
There are some negatives though: graphics are average, the introduction is poor and a really annoying feature is sometimes you can end up wandering aimlessly across the game map to try and seek and destroy one last remaining enemy unit that doesn't want to be located, in order to complete the mission. All in all though Red Alert is a solid strategy game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Command and Conquer: Red Alert review 23 Oct 2013
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Command and Conquer: Red alert was the 1996 sequel to the real-time strategy game Command and Conquer developed by Westwood studios. While more successful on the PC due to its modding and multiplayer accessibility, the PlayStation version was still a reputable port, keeping the core elements intact.

The game takes place in an alternate 1940s where the united states army enlists Albert Einstein to create the Chronosphere, A time traveling device conceived to assassinate Hitler in 1924, after He is released from Landsburg prison. While doing so succeeds to circumvent the rise of the Nazi regime, one detail is overlooked: The Nazi's influence on the Soviet's military expansion. Now living in 1940s even further than the original visions of World War II, the Allied forces must now contend with the incessant assault of the Soviet Union, a now inconceivably stronger threat than the Nazis.

The game contains two disks that both represent a respective team; Allied or soviet. Allied are the token protagonists of the game and utilise a wider array of arsenal, while not as outwardly strong as soviet, are better for tactical endeavours as well as cheaper for fast economic deployment. The Soviets, while less varied and more expensive, have a fierce and robust arsenal that gives no quarter in disposing the opposition; make them ideal for newer players.

One of the major improvements over the prior RTS franchises from Westwood would be the interface. The interface is so neatly packaged it makes the game very accessible to newer players. The single window tab in the right hand corner of the screen consolidates all gameplay options very clearly.

The variety of units available are plentiful and each with its unique function to serve a particular role.
