Old but gold
on 10 February 2014
I'm a big fan of the initial C&C series which I found very good almost 10 years back. Very complex and time consuming campaigns which made it very challenging and involving. Of course, as with all great games, there's a time to play... and a time to cry. And cry I did after I tried the last games from the series after EA purchased the company.
But for the few of us who still believe that a game should not be judged only by the number of girls they pack in, this Deluxe Edition will be great fun. I recommend it to anyone who likes puzzle games, true strategy and countless options in terms of playability.
I got this about a year ago for £10 delivered. So what you get for this? More than 200 hours of total gameplay. The first DVD is the C&C Tiberium Wars: Make sure you install the 1.07 patch to fix some bugs. It comes with a comprehensive booklet containing everything you need to know about the game: controls, campaigns, skirmish, units etc. You can play as GDI or NOD in campaign mode.
The second DVD is the C&C Kanes' wrath. Again, you are provided with a comprehensive booklet. In campaign mode you can play as GDI, Brotherhood of Nod or Scrin - some aliens which invade earth.
As this is the first release of the series after EA's purchase, the games is still true to the core of the series though you will get in both games interludes of brief videos with ladies dressed in very short dresses for a war zone. Nevertheless, the action can still be followed easily even with these distractions. However, I'll say it - the older ones where even better!
Let me know if you have questions.
