Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars Reviewed

Applelinks recently posted a new review of Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars. One of several Cider powered titles recently released for Intel Macs by Electronic Arts, C&C 3: TW continues the award winning RTS series. Applelinks gave the game a perfect score of 5 out of 5.

From the review:

For an RTS, the levels of Tiberium Wars show a surprising amount of variety. Although the basic flow involves you setting up a base and upgrading soldiers/structures so you can effectively attack an enemy base or defend your own, that won't always be the case. A surprising level early on has you controlling just one soldier as he infiltrates an enemy camp. Reinforcements eventually do arrive, but you get a bonus if you don't use them. Considering that Tiberium Wars offers over 35 single player missions, this variety is quite welcome.

Once you get through the single player missions of Campaign Mode, the game isn't over, of course. You can play through it again as the enemy to get a completely different take on the various levels. There's also Skirmish Mode, in which you play a level as either GDI, Nod or Scrin against one or more computer opponents. And, as always, there's a robust Multiplayer Mode over a local network or online. The interesting thing about multiplayer mode is that you can broadcast your matches for others to watch even if they don't own Command & Conquer (website registration required). Observing matches in which you're not participating serves two important purposes: First, it can help you learn and master additional strategies, and second, it's a good way to observe the action of the game to determine if it's something you'd want to purchase.
