Tiberian Sun is the stunning sequel to Command & Conquer. Fight on dynamic 3D 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 Defense Initiative, or join the secretive Brotherhood of Nod. Then prepare your troops for combat in tiberium-infested temperate zones, arctic tundra 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.

It is set on Earth and is played in the third person i.e. you command your forces from an elevated perspective.There are 16 missions to complete and each mission gets gradually more complex as the game progresses. If you fail to complete level 3 you cannot progress to level 4 and so on. A good tip here is to try each level on 'easy' before aiming for 'hard' as this will give you an excellent idea of what to expect in the more difficult levels.
Most missions require you to build a base, amass an attack force then unleash its diabolical firepower on some very aggressive enemies. The soundtrack is eerie and atmospheric and helps sets the tone for each level. Many of the levels are genuinely challenging and you'll pull your hair out trying to figure out a strategy to get you through. Another good tip here is to save your game regularly so that you won't need to go back to the very beginning of a mission if you try a strategy that fails.
Forces at your disposal range from armed human personnel to fighter bombers and if you're going to complete all 16 levels you'll need to use the lot! Games don't get much better than this.
The campaign is truly epic in scale with its 18 missions for GDI and 17 missions for Nod - provided that the player takes every opportunity of completing the optional missions that is. In certain places, as in the original game, divergent missions are offered in which only one or the other can be selected for completion offers replay ability.
Another great improvement is the revamping of all the units and buildings afforded to each faction. There's barely a sign of conventional warfare here, as GDI and Nod each wield their own futuristic,
Though reassuringly familiar, units and technologies. Tanks in the GDI faction have been replaced with massive armoured robot walkers, and though the Nod tick tank is a bit more well-known to the eyes, it can transform at a click to an entrenched turret.
There are Long drawn out missions which require you to spend time building up your forces and slugging it out with the opponent are balanced by small team infiltration type missions.
Where successfully navigating your way across a map crawling with enemies before the time limit runs out provides a fast paced change of action. Each and every mission is different, presenting tricky new challenges, and whilst the first couple of missions are reasonably easy, the trickiness soon ramps Overall the game is a classic to anyone who plays it,
If you haven’t even heard of it try it you will not disappoint you as this is an experience you are going to love, as long as you like you C&C style strategy games.
I Recommend the Firestorm expansion and from there the Tiberian Wars sequel. All great games.
Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun is still one of the best RTS Games I have ever played. Yes, it was hyped up more than deserved in magazine reviews and it was delayed for 2 years from it's first initial release date but most games are, at least good games are that have no bugs, glitches or limited gameplay.
You get to play great games - every mission is a challenge and great fun with a story line. The storyline with all C&C Games make it what it what it is. This game has brilliant graphics too.
I just wish EA games made more games as good as the Westwood Studios had made. EA games tend to mess with things and make them worse as a result, often ignoring their gaming fans. Note to EA: we love the games, not you! And hate you when you mess them up, profit driven greed and lack quality. The worst C&C game is C&C 4 Twilight. I do not even own that game because to me it is not a C&C game. Now EA games want to milk C&C fans using free play games engineered to make you purchase funds! They just tagged on that they will make more money by doing MMORPG games by getting you to spend multiple amounts adding up more than a game cost would, over the months and years you play online! If you do not pay you stand to be disadvantaged.
In Tiberiun Sun you still have to decide which side you play evil v good - NOD v GDI and you still harvest Tiberium for credits and get to train advanced new military units and soldiers.
Some of the machines, buildings and advanced tanks were never to be seen in the final game but this was down to the hype that was in the game reviews before the game had been released.
I waited for this game several years and was not let down.Read more ›
As well as the two campaigns, you have the skirmish option. This is great as you have no limits to your build quantity and you can play as long as you want and turtle the enemy until you have a force which covers half the map. Also a perfect training ground before you play the guys online, although the online option on the CD is not working (for me anyway), search online and you will find a few easy downloads and play via a mini server; btw I don’t like risky downloads, but this wasn’t at all risky it was safe and easy to do.
Overall the game is a classic to anyone who plays it, if you haven’t even heard of it I envy you as this is an experience you are going to love, as long as you like you C&C style strategy games. After you are done with this I highly recommend the Firestorm expansion and from there the Tiberian Wars sequel. Love this game, thanks Westwood for being a part of my childhood.
