Default Re: Red Alert 3 Thread

Red Alert 3 is a huge letdown - coming from CnC 3 I had high hopes for this one, but it just didn't deliver. The graphics are nice, but I just don't feel like I'm in control as I did in supreme commander and cnc 3. The AI is really dumb(my own units move in the wrong direction and don't shoot when the enemy is attacking my base) and every time you think you've finished a mission something else comes up and you have to start all over(after playing for an hour that's irritating).
And it's also irritating when your ally destroys an enemy building you're just about to capture.
What I like is that everything is happening at once and the enemy actually doesn't suck, but the sluggish and clumsy way you control everything just doesn't make it fun to move back and forth across the battlefield. And I also like that they've put a lot of effort in naval battles, but seriously - is this really necessary for every mission? It's irritating to constantly have to move your troops around from island to island.

And don't even get me started on the troops - let me just say that it's pretty embarrassing that a helicopter can take out a large battleship without getting hit.

This game had a lot of potential, but it just isn't as good as I hoped - it's still fun to play, but not something I'd want to spend 40 on. Coop is really great, but it's too bad that none of my friends like rts games..
