Over at MSXbox World, they have posted my latest review for the Xbox 360 and this time on the RTS game Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars.
After many hours on the PC version and now the Xbox 360, it is interesting to see how the two different platforms deliver on what could be a very problematic control transfer from mouse to controller:
It feels just lately that some of the best games I played on the PC all those years ago are returning in a very sentimental form. This is certainly not a bad thing and for now a 26 year old gamer who has the experience and history to recognise how the industry has transformed in that time, it is nice to have that nostalgia and classic nature return for those younger peeps who have yet to experience the rich past a lot of us enjoyed.
Command and Conquer was one of those titles that met the requirement for classic status and although there have been many iterations of the game, the soul has certainly returned in the latest. Kane is indeed back as the Internet reported time and time again. Those wonderfully cheesy video segments (back in the day referred to as FMV sequences), have returned as well in over 90 minutes worth of glorious high definition footage with recognisable actors including the same actor who played Kane back in the day.
So while trying to remain critical while experiencing this happy glow that has appeared since reliving some great gaming moments, will Command and Conquer deliver the goods?
