Wielding strange new technologies and hungering for revenge, the Soviet Army invades America. Overwhelmed Allied forces, unprepared for the surprise attack, are decimated. Will freedom be crushed under the heels of Communist aggression. Red Alert 2 is another Real Time Strategy from Westwood the makers of the brilliant Command and Conquer series. This is one of the few RTS that really was modded heavily, and not just limited to new maps and or player models.

Red Alert 2 is quite possibly one of the best games ever made. When I was no older than 6, I remember playing Red Alert 1 for the first time, it was an amazing experience only to be followed up by an even better one as soon as my Mom came home one day with a copy of Red Alert 2 for me and my brothers.

Red Alert 2 (And also Yuri's Revenge while we're doing a full review) has been my favorite game ever since it was released, and I don't just mean out of the Command & Conquer series, I mean in general. While I am a fan of many other game series' such as Half-Life, Armored Core, Sonic The Hedgehog, Portal, Command & Conquer etc. Red Alert 2 tops them all in my books.

Real Time Strategy has evolved so much and so well since it was first founded by Westwood back in the golden days, and even though it has kind of gone down the drain thanks to EA's lack of knowledge on how to run the C&C franchise, the greats are still there and this is one of those titles that I can play and mod for the rest of my forseeable days without getting bored.

I love everything about Red Alert 2, the balance, the gameplay, the campaign, the music, I even like the graphics even though a lot of people seem to look down on them, there is just nothing at fault at all. With the addition of Yuri's Revenge, the game was made even better by adding some new missions, new music, some new units (thus, new tactics) and the unique voices for each unit. The game just got better and better as time went on.

Sadly, Red Alert 3 did not live up to my expectations, but after seeing Tiberium Wars being the follow up from Tiberian Sun, I had my doubts anyway, but Red Alert 2 / Yuri's Revenge are eternal. They have so much playability thanks to being so modding friendly and I intend to play them for as long as I possibly can (when I feel up to it, of course).

This is what Real Time Strategy should be and should have always remained as, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge are perfection.

Fun, down to the core. Map making is also very easy.

This is the only game I still play after 10 years (or was it longer? I am 50 now). Never had any game that is more addicting than this one.
