The Red Alert, developed by the mod team of C&C Labs (makes of The Forgotten and C&C All Stars, 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.

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. (the game was unbalanced then and it is now)

* (I had no music for some reason)

* Requirement to use high detail models to prevent the annoying tone.

* Red Alert, just like how i remember it.

Please accept my comments with the knowledge that this mod is indeed fantastic, but then again..

Same old problem as All Stars, sticking faithfully to the original unit stats setting to the point of ignoring balancing and no integration to adjust to the new game platform, thus making the gameplay very dull. It looked like a lot of effort, but maybe not enough and didn't go to the right way, hence its mediocry.
