If you are looking for a better RA2.... this isn't it....
on 23 August 2015
I bought this thinking it would be like Red Alert 2... but better seeing as it is the next in the series... it isn't. The units are no where near as interesting and there seems to be a severe lack of different buildings and units. The ore system has changed which means that you have to keep setting up new bases around the map just to get the ore, which some people might think is a good thing but I don't like it.
The offline skirmish is absolutely terrible. I am truly disappointed with it. You cannot create any random maps, and you cannot turn off superweapons... in fact there is very little you can actually edit. Nearly every single unit can travel over water which is highly irritating and the computer goes for the kill absolutely immediately no matter what difficulty you are on and of course they always only go for you and not the other AI players unless you are teamed up with them but that isn't much different to Red Alert 2 to be fair.
