Command and Conquer 3: The Forgotten aims to bring back and tell the story of a fascinating faction. The Forgotten, featured in Tiberian Sun and Firestorm, are an ever-growing group of individuals afflicted with Tiberium-based illnesses. Detested, marginalized, and oppressed by the three superpowers, The Forgotten have begun to rally against GDI, Nod, and the Scrin. Since their story is not featured in C&C 3, the mod aims to tell it in a compelling fashion, through a deep singleplayer campaign, unique faction composition, and engaging gameplay. The Forgotten is also the only mod to feature high-definition Full Motion Videos, just like real C&C games, that advance the story.
By now this is a rather dated mod, but nonetheless it's an impressive work.
It offers zero changes to vanilla factions, but promotes Forgotten mutants, present in the series since Tiberian Sun but only represented by a single mercenary unit in the Tiberium Wars, into a full-fledged faction with a complete tech tree. It offers a campaign where you get to fight the other factions, too, and even features FMV videos like the original game! Incredible, huh?
Unfortunately it's not as awesome as it sounds. There are plenty of bugs, some of them likely to induce a crash, and that's just the beginning. While new units and abilities are original, with some ideas like power plants being upgradeable to defenses working surprisingly well, the assets in general look somewhat shoddy in comparison with vanilla, and some abilities or units are somewhat hard to use - the basic infantry are just useless, even in large amounts they're too weak for anything, and top tier units are absolutely uninteresting and generic. Campaign has it's flaws too - for some reason the mod authors decided the video intro guy is an old grizzled veteran who served back in the second tiberium war, yet the actor playing him is blatantly a college age dude, and the missions are particularly hard but at same time easy to cheese and cheat, which diminishes strategic planing.
Overall this is worth a try. While the final result is somewhat unsightly, it's still pretty wholesome.
Highest Rated (7 agree) 10/10
The mod adds the Forgotten as a new faction and shows their storyline in the Third Tiberium War. The mod adds great stuff for the Forgotten in a pretty balanced way. I suggest you try the Sidewinders and Bulldozers, they own.
