I am adding my voice to the many that are clearly disappointed with this product.

I have played the demo, had a go on a friends copy and found the game average.

However, the limited installs (limited to 3 machines!) with the daft uninstall policy and the securom haunting the background have made me not purchase this game.

I do not purchase games to hire them out. If I buy a copy I want to install it as many times as I like on both my laptop for when I'm travelling and my desktop for when I'm not.

One more lost sale.

I was looking forward to this Game. I am a massive C&C Fan and have bought every game and expansion pack (bar Sole Survivor) and play them regularly.

BUT I cannot buy this game. I like the look of the game and have invested in upgrading my PC to play it, but on release contains DRM which is reliant on an outside server to authenticate me to play.

I cant condone this. My old PC was 9 years old (with the odd upgrade) and I was happily playing C&C 1, RA and RA2 quite happily for years.
EA a couple of years down the line will no doubt stop authenticating the installs and I will have nothing but a coaster for my money.

DRM like this has to stop. EA should stick to console gaming. That's what these games are aimed at anyway. Leave PC gaming to a company who cases about the community and listens to their customers.

The DRM issue has led to a lot of negative press, and a lot of one star reviews. My review will tackle DRM, but I've also tried to fairly review the game itself. Firstly the game itself...

Red Alert 3 follows on from its predecessor really well. That camp fun of Soviets, Terror Drones and psychics is back. I think it works well that the main C&C series takes on the more serious tone, while the Red Alert franchise takes on the ridiculous-but-fun stories. The game designers obviously know their stuff, and have followed on from RA2 with great respect. Fans of RA2 will be familiar with lots of the sound effects, characters and units.

There's also a new faction to keep things fresh, the Japanese, which I can't help but feel the game designers liked best -- there seemed to be more ingenuity when it came to this new faction.

There's a great sense of humour in the game. In addition to all the campy cut scenes, humour pervades the game. Dog units can "maul with impunity", and a special upgrade where Terror Drones erupt from the wreckage of vehicles is aptly named a "Terror Drone Surprise". I love the attention to detail.

Graphically, the game is gorgeous. Keeping the style of RA2, but modernised, it looks lovely and somehow doesn't seem to cause levels to take five hours to load!

On a production level, it's really gone up a notch. There are a lot of very well produced cut scenes, including some "I know them from somewhere..." actors, including faces from the O.C., 24 and UK TV soap Hollyoaks. There's a really nice guest spot with the actor who plays the American VP -- I won't spoil the surprise.

But for all the polished production values, and game designers who were obviously very much into RA2, the game does fall down in many ways.

I have bought every command & conquer game since the original. I was eagerly anticipating this game up until I heard about the Spore fiasco, looked up C&C Red Alert 3 and the idea to add DRM to this too. Many times have I installed and uninstalled the games because my computer, although is quite powerful, can not cope with so much installed on it.

Say ea continue to use secuROM on their games... You have to keep them installed or else you lose one of your installation credits. So the games build up until you have no more hard drive space to install anymore... then what? I know hard drive space on machines now is ever vastly increasing, but there are still limits. What makes things worse is if you use you're installation limits up, you are put at a further cost by having to ring them, and ask them to allow another activation... like you have done something wrong! Vote with you're wallet, I know I, and many others are.

I had high hopes for this game, waiting 7 years since RA2 and followed the long promotional campaign EA ran. It could have been a great game but RA3 restricted itself by targeting too young an audience. The game has the comical entertainment of RA2 but lacks any serious tactical and strategic elements.

EA redeemed itself after Generals with C&C3 but RA3 fails to live up to this. The successful infantry squad element of C&C3 is gone - for some reason? The gameplay of RA3 is flawed. Its major failings are the co-op system which is frustrating, the general abilities which adds little to the gameplay and the campaign which is far too short. The re-introduction of naval units was a big let down as they are too similar to land-based units and there are too few naval missions. The characters are forgettable and the story is minimal, patchy at best and so, unlike previous C&C titles, I didn't find myself as the gamer engrossed - to be honest the promotional campaign was more interesting!! There is a serious longevity problem with this game in that I really do find it difficult to play again. It just seems so out of place in the C&C series. RA2 is much better if not a little out of date.

I would recommend this game to people who don't take strategy seriously and who like comic-book style graphics and simply want to be mildly entertained for a week or so. I have grown up with C&C games and having played them all in my opinion RA3 is by far the worst to date. I will be surprised if the RA series continues. It will be interesting to see which direction C&C will take next.
