Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

This strategy game pits the militaristic forces of the Global Defence Initiative against the Brotherhood of Nod, an equally well-armed religious order. Players may play either side as the factions fight to control an ecologically ravaged Earth. The key to winning is tiberium, a plant that serves as raw material for weapons and factories. Controlling this powerful fuel source allows you to generate funds, raise armies and fend off destruction.

Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun is a simple combat simulator that allows the player to gather resources, turn them into soldiers and unleash them against the foe. The game runs in real time, so events can turn against you quickly, but if one is cautious and observant, the battles are not too hard to win.

Though their missions are different, the two sides are essentially interchangeable, with identical military discipline and similar battle units. Though the Brotherhood of Nod has fascist trappings and is obviously the villain, there is no significant difference in playing one side or the other. The game also lacks female battle units, though it features a few women in interstitial sequences.

Despite these weaknesses, Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun is thoroughly entertaining and will satisfy anyone who enjoys building an army from the ground up and testing it on the battlefield. --Alyx Dellamonica

Manufacturer's Description

Tiberian Sun is the stunning sequel to Command & Conquer. Fight on dynamic 3-D battlefields where nature itself provides tactical opportunities: ion storms, destructible terrain, forest fires, treacherous ice fields and many more surprises that can help or hinder your strategies. Choose from two very different ways to play: command the Global Defence Initiative, or join the secretive Brotherhood of Nod. Then prepare your troops for combat in tiberium-infested temperate zones, arctic tundras and full cityscapes. Invent new strategies and tactics. Employ a deadly mix of advanced technologies, high-energy weapons, guerrilla warfare and high-tech sabotage. A kinetic and living battlefield created with new technology delivers things like flying shrapnel, shock waves and crashing debris for an in-game experience like never before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Command & Conquer : Can you make it? 30 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Starting on a strong base of the C&C Series, Tiberian Sun provides more of that electrifying fun from Westwood. Whilst the early missions are somewhat similar to the original C&C, those who complain of a lack of originality haven't been able to get through to the later missions yet, where strategy and cunning become as important as stength in numbers (always necessary in the original).
The mission disk add-on pack also allows greater variety, but if you don't have it, downloading the free patch files from Westwood is important. There are a large number of bugs, especially in Multiplayer, that need fixing.
Possibly the greatest strength of the game is the simplicity of its control interface, which is almost unique in the Real-Time-Strategy Genre. Attacking, moving and deploying are all simnple operations. Grouping of units is easy, and a new waypoint system makes long movements and unit-based base defence possible.
All the classic elements of construction, power plants, barracks and war factories will make C&C veterans right at home, even if they look different. On the same vein, there is a rich storyline, continued from where the original left off. Kane is once again aiming for world domination, but this time he wants to cover the planet in Tiberium as well. Why? Maybe we'll know in a future installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Command & Conquer Tiberium Sun 5 Jun 2003
Format:Video Game
Command and Conquer games are always classics but this one is my absolute favourite. The game, like the first is all about Tiberium, a alien substance from out of space which is used to create weapons. Nod an fanatical religous faction thought defeated in earlier games has no returned and it's up to GDI to take them down. Among GDI new units are the Wolverine a walking batt5le tank, the Ghost Stalker, invisible with a Rail Gun and the super Mammoth Mark2. Among Nods new units are the Cyborg, a brilliant anti-infanry united, the Cyborg Commando, an anti-everything warrior and the tick-tank a tank that converts into a base defense. The best game in the C&C series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice game, shame about the copy protection 7 July 2000
Format:Video Game
This follow up to Red Alert is a real mixed bag. On the one hand, it's more of the same quality entertainment Westwood showcased in the earlier C&C titles, on the other it contains the world's most irritating copy protection system, that refused to allow me to play the game on three of four machines I tried it on.
The game itself is very similar to it's predecessors, Tiberium needs to be harvested to build vehicles, which are launched at the enemy base until one side is finally hammered into submission. The problem for me is that while it would have been great as an expansion to the original games there's not enough here to have justified the long wait for it to be released.
Shame really ... as I guess for first-timers it's probably looks great, sadly for a seasoned campaigner it didn't do the trick and that copy protection thing REALLY ruined my day ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Westwood has done it again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 15 Aug 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Where to start? Well, you can choose between GDI or the Brotherhood of NOD (GDI tend to have huge vehicles whereas NOD have faster, more stealthy vehicles). It's based on the first one but better! Damn good song list, fantastic graphics (Not quite 3D), more missions! Plus, you gain more advanced infantry, vehicles and technology as you progress through the game. If you have the original C@C, then you'll know that the storyline follows on pretty much.

Overall, this game is still my favourite one of the series. ANYONE OUT THERE WHO'S A C@C FAN, GET THIS GAME! Three cheers for Westwood!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tiberian Dawn 19 Mar 2004
Format:Video Game
The command and conquer series are a highly addictive group of games, and Tiberian Sun is definitively my Faveourite. In the origional the GDI were far superior to NOD but now the tables have turned and Kane is back. If you love this game then the Firestorm bonus disc is also a must with beauts such as the Reaper cyborgs, Ion Storms and mobile EMP cannons, you cant go wrong. This game is a must, but dont expect to have friends when youve finished it!!!
