Red Alert, Red Alert 2 ligt in de winkel. Gonegold had alvast de Collectors Edition geprobeerd en het was weer als vanouds... en of dat goed is of niet zal je wel in de 300 reviews kunnen lezen die binnenkort overal verschijnen I had a feeling that I was going to enjoy this one even though Tiberian Sun was a bit disappointing. I like the subject matter much better than the futuristic setting of the original Command and Conquer games. Lets take a look at the basics...

The first thing I noticed was how clear the video was. I rarely watch the opening cinematics of games anymore, but this was so crystal clear, I had to watch. I'm glad I did because it was very well done and sets the stage for the game nicely. As I booted up the tutorial, I was happy to see the graphics for the game were just as crisp as the video. Even though the units are still rather small in 1024, the detail is there and they're much better than Tiberian Sun. The Graphics all around are much better than TS, which I was happy to see, being the shallow gamer that I am.

The tutorial can be skipped by anyone who has played any RTS game, as it's quite short and to the point. After two missions it takes you right into the Allied campaign. Those familiar with the series will know what to expect. It's all here... Skirmish Mode, Multiplayer, Two Campaigns... Allied and Soviet, hours of gameplay ready to be had. There's really nothing revolutionary here and gamers that insist on having "new" gameplay/ideas should most likely pass, but it sure feels good to be back!Red Alert 2, tijd om de winkel te bestormen ?
