Mideast Crisis 2] (MEC2) is a total conversion for 'Command and Conquer 3 - Tiberium Wars' set in the near future, letting you use modern technology (such as the Abrams, F-35 and Hind) alongside future technology (such as Drones, Airships and Medibots) in a conflict ranging from Jerusalem to Beirut.

Seems like a whole game instead of a mod. Positively ingenius, this is the ideal mod. It changes gameplay, resource collecting, and has some of the funnest maps I have played. Overall, on par with studio-made games.

MidEast Crisis 2 really takes its predecessor into a higher level with more fun. I can't say more.

Only one thing in my mind though; the contents may be a bit sensitive to some religious "hardliners", but nevertheless, the mod is very good.

Note: This review isn't based on the gameplay because I haven't played it yet - it's based on the artwork and graphics style alone.

Mod looks impressive and ambitious and has some very cool looking units, but has some pretty glaring artistic problems as well.

First off is the Guardians of Islam faction - most of their buildings are based off of traditional Middle-Eastern architecture (even the base defenses look like they're made of stone) and don't look like anything you'd ever see in the middle of a battlefield. While on the flip side some of their units look way too futuristic (ex. the Berkut-styled fighters - seeing high-tech aircraft along side 'Arabian nights'-looking architecture just clashes really, really bad).

The Brummbar super tank is another issue - the tank is just too big, or the scale seems to be way off on some of the units (I see pickup truck-styled units shorter than this tank's treads). Not to mention the turret on the tank looks too similar to an Abrams.

Lastely - what's up with the UN faction using "advertisements" as a weapon on the battlefield? Even the advertisements at the base look a little strange - but using "Burger King" ads to defeat enemy soldiers is something that should be reserved for a comedy mod - not a semi-realistic mod.

Overall this mod looks like it has some impressive new designs, but some of these design choices are so unfitting that they stick out like a sore thumb and ruin the incentive to play it.

Best C&C 3 mod ever. It is really rare that mod is based on Middle East. I played this a year ago and I loved it. Wish they make missions if it`s possible

Superb graphics, voice acting, and some cool concepts. Gameplay is not all there. The attempt to make factions more unique simply adds huge glaring flaws in the faction that you will spend the entire game trying to cover. AI spams units, which would be fine if the choice of unit made sense in gameplay and common sense. (Hoards of Tanks: Alright, I guess its an armored division. Flocks of blimps: WTF?)

Viable gameplay for the UN just consist of tank rushes or turtling up and steam rolling the enemies who have no base defenses worth anything. Gameplay for the other two factions consists of a whack a mole with the resource points. Constantly chasing the enemy off of one or the other.

You know those "bland name products" in movies/tv dramas/anime that are so over the top that you just can't take seriously that satires the real life product?

... They this game appears to be one of those. No campaigns, over-the-top dialog, dark humor, among other things...

... For any other game this would be the end, but for MEC2 all these are just part of the theme.

The lack of canpaign and plot in general highlight the futility of the current conflict in the Middle East without actually needing to make a statement support either real life faction. The dark humor masked, while at the same time pointing out, the disfunctions and faults that can be found in the real life conterparts of the various factions. And sometimes, we do like a game that does not take itself that seriously while making sharp geo-political commentary.

Oh yea, I almost forgot about gameplay. MEC2 foucs on smaller scale conflicts using less troops, allowing players to utilize all of his/her units to the full extend of their abilities. Choices are not that many which force players to think outside the box in order to win.

So far the best mod for C&C 3.
