·The Red Alert: The original, the only, the true; The Red Alert.

The Red Alert, under development by the mod team of C&C Labs, undertakes one of the most ambitious tasks in C&C modding: to recreate and improve upon an original game. The mod, in development for Red Alert 3, is based off the original Red Alert's art and game play. Not aiming to model realism, it instead endeavors to bring the addictive heart-pounding game play of the classic to a world-class 3D engine, to bring back all of the classic units, including those from Aftermath, and to recreate the very "feel" of its art style. With The Red Alert, epic tank battles, MiG attack runs, and Cruiser strikes will be more than just fond memories — they will all be weapons in your arsenal once again! It was released on September 21, 2011 and was ranked the number one mod on Moddb and critically acclaimed on other sites, with GameSpy calling it "A Command and Conquer fan's dream come true."

More than eighteen months after its release, The Red Alert mod is still alive and kicking, and more than 17 years after release, the classic Red Alert 1 game is fresher than ever. Whether you played the original game, are just a fan of the mod, or are new entirely, this release has something for you, with a host of gameplay enhancements, AI improvements, and bug fixes. In particular, we'd like to thank ZeroMD for doing so much to make it possible.

It's available in two versions: a patch and a complete download. Head over to the downloads page or take a look at the mod's trailer.

RA3 was too short, and it didnt live up to the other 2 RA's i was hoping for a little back story, like RA2 did to RA1, but i guess you cant have everything when EA takes your job!

Looks nice. Will this mod also feature a return of the AWESOME multiplayer functions such as tech level, shroud regrows, bases, and furtheron? 'cause that's what I miss the most.

Why is it that games keep getting mods planned(complete with renders)before it is even released.

I guess it's because C&C 3 modding is so repulsive to most that they are eager to move on, even if it's to a game they can't actually mod yet.

Alright, so I had at a it a bit, and here's my tentative opinion. First of all, the number one thing hurting this mod is lack of coherency. When I started a game on Pier Pressure, I had my large, smooth-looking conyard right next to an original RA3 structure. It was extremely jarring. Second, many units feel underdesigned and bland. I'm going to have to stick to my opinion from the first video (http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-red-alert/videos/the-red-alert-gameplay-trailer#imagebox) that the visuals…

Before i begin im firstly gunna have to say that my grade of 5 is due to the fact that i have feelings about this mood that are both good and bad, and in my book you round up from 5 :) Good points * Red Alert, just like how i remember it. * The use of modern feature like garrisons and tech structures * The ore mine (I like both node and mine btw) * old icons for units * The use of the nations for the diffrent bonuses (Like England and Ukrane) Bad points :( * Red Alert balancing factor.
