March, 2047. A massive nuclear fireball explodes high in the night sky, marking the dramatic beginning to the Third Tiberium War. The infamous Kane has returned to lead the Brotherhood of Nod in a massive global assault on the Global Defense Initiative and the few remaining Blue zones left on the planet. Only you can stop him. The fate of humanity – and the planet – is in your hands.
My personal favorite C&C ever... alone it is good, but download the Forgotten mod from CnClabs and it is made perfect!
The story is wonderful, truely C&C IMO. It also has a sense of ambiguity at the end, giving the player (based on their faction preferance) the chance to decide their own ending in a way. The addition of an all-star cast in the video sequenses (very well done) only makes it cooler.
Gameplay is great. Each faction has their weaknesses and strengths, but ultamately, no side is too powerful over another. With the Forgotten expantion, you get an additional faction that adds so much to multiplayer as well.
Art, graphics, and unit design are great! The soundtrack is perfect!
The thing that I think makes this game a uniqe C&C is the database system, which includes a great deal of backround story and concept art as well!
If you are into stratagy, I highly reccomend this.
