Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars
fun easy and good game
this one is my favorite it is easy for everybody. it is a good game for everybody. everybody should try it.
Console controls don't do it justice.
First of all i love CNC, especially the Tiberium story. I've logged well over 300 hours in this game... on pc. The xbox controls slow you down far too much. On pc i can have a fully operational base with max defenses and 200 max tier units within 30 minutes. on xbox controls it takes well over 3 hours to create the same. As far as online play goes, your opponents will be just as slow, so it balances out, but i prefer it being about who can be smarter in a short amount of time, now who can choose the right units with plenty of time to think about it.
With that said, cnc tw3 is my fav tiberium game. the 4th one sucks, and 1 n 2 are just prehistoric. I love games like this where there is no cap on units. If your xbox can handle it, go ahead and make 100000 units.
The graphics are still some of the better graphics for RTS games, in that you can zoom in to look at each soldier and they still look half decent. Most RTS games you zoom into that level and it looks like a stick figure with meat on it. no camo, no real texturing, no gear such as vests, ammo pouches, etc, and the gun typically looks like a stick itself. they even have idle animations such as doing pushups, holding their gun over their heads, etc. And that's just the soldiers. this game has mechs, aircraft, etc etc.
I highly recommend tring the free demo on XBl marketplace before buying, that gives you a solid taste of how the controls are, and what the game is about.
The story itself is ok, not great but ok. However considering that it's an RTS and that they generally have no story, i say that demands to be said that the story is better then most games in it's genre.
Game mechanics are very solid, but the controls are annoying. On the computure you can have a squad assigned to one key. so no matter what menu you have open, or where you are on the map, you double tap that key and it takes you to that squad ready to recieve your command. On console it has a similar feature, but to get to said button you have to go through far too many menus. Just highlighting units is annoying. On pc you can do "select all units on entire map" or "select all military units" or "select all of one specific type of unit" etc. on console you cant. if you have 10 soldiers, 10 mechs, and 10 aircraft. on pc you click one soldier, press a button and you have all ten selected. same with mechs and or aircraft. to do that on console, you have to click them individually, move them to an area where it's just them, THEN you can highlight the group. otherwise highlighting them in your base might highlight any others in the area including worker units, units already assigned to another group, etc. It's frustrating.
All in all i recommend CNCTW3 to any rts player, but i HIGHLY recommend you go pc with it. Also if you enjoy the game, be sure to get the expansion pack kanes wrath. has a fair amount of added goodies, and an interesting story to continue through.
ONe of my fav's
One of my Favorite games to play back in the old days was the first "Red Alert" game for the PC, one of the first PC games that i own and got hook on following by StarCraft when it first came out. I love the story's from the Command & Conquer: 2 to Command and conquer: Tiberium sun. I love this game because i love sci-fi and that you get to play a alien race. One of the best things is that you get to build as many unites that you can until your computer blows up lol but now with the new computers you can. I did not have a great computer back in the day and ill lag if i get up to 500 units with everything blowing up.
this is a cool summary
love this game i would really recommend this is a game to anyone
great game, so fun too play, want to play it again
This game is an amazing game, it has great plot twists, gameplay, and was ultimatly extreamly fun to play
This game never loses its fun factor. Even if you complete the REALLY long campaign there's still new battles to be had in skirmish mode. The controls are very well laid out. I enjoy this game very much and even though its not by Westwood Studios I still think it's one of the best C&C games of all time.
good but better for pc
i origanally played this for pc and loved it so i decided to get it for 360. there really isnt much of a diference. But with any game like this, its always better for pc. so if you have a good pc get it for that if you dont its still good on 360. gameplay is really fun, graphics are not bad at all, and it gives you alot of options and freedoms. one thing that i love about the camand and conquer games is the real video cincmatics. i dont know why but i love that and i think that it is one of the best features. but overall i love this game and i would defibatly recomend it to anyone who is a gamer. if your not a gamer than you might find it difficult or not fun.
verry fun, like halo wars better thow but this game is still fun except the lack of xbox live players
BEST RTS CONSOLE GAME
If you enjoy playing RTS games but are unable to play them in a PC this by far offers the best experience for an RTS in a console
best game ever made
command&conquer3 tiberium wars is the best game you will ever find what you will like the best is the building of your army or fireing you super weapon at the enemy base the story line could have been better i must warn you campain is hard even if you do boot camp the first misson is still a little bit hard but its the best game ever you could be the nod the gdi or the scrin i would recomend in skirmish that you do gdi vs gdi if your first starting if you really mad at the enemy you could build a super weapon but triple your army if you do after like 6 minets you could destory the enemy with the weapon[locate the enemy base first] and have fun wittnessing your super weapon do maximum destruction or just order air strikes to destroy the enemy
