EAStore still hasn't processed my order. What the hell is the point of a preorder if they don't ever bother to even ship your game on the release date? I feel like bitching them out and cancelling it.

Rofl I sent them a nasty message threatening to cancel it and they shipped it right away. What the hell were they doing in the first place???

A friend of mine has been in New York last week and he has bought the game for me. It includes a beta key for Red Alert 3. Bad news is that USA version is only 4 gb (single layer DVD) and it only includes English language, so I bet the one you guys are talking about is international version, those extra 4 gb must be international voices and videos.

the movies in the expansion dont have the quality that they did in the original, they seem a bit pantomimy in this one.

Despite lackluster reviews I grabbed this today... I hate to admit it to EA, but the Red Alert Beta Key was a small part of that decision, as well as more story and the possibly cool (for me) conquest mode.

So far it seems like a decent expansion, though I agree with K007 the story is... not what I expected. It might take me a while to play more though, I'm notoriously slow with RTS and just decided to give C&C3 itself a shot not long ago.

CnC3 was actually pretty solid game. The difference between CnC3 and the Expansion to CnC3 is that this expansion...doesn't actually continue the story...aside from the last 2 missions which is about 2mins~of new video continuing the story...which is very disappointing...

In otherwords..its a EA Milking

Ok I haven't finished it (up to the species chick) but so far I think its quite good, missions are better, game is harder, cutscenes are kane kane kane and they introduce units better, expansions are meant to milk the games usually.
