After years of conflict, the Allies are finally on the brink of victory. Cowering behind the walls of the Kremlin, the Soviets decide to turn to one last act of desperation - the use of an experimental time travel device. The mission: to go back in time to eliminate Albert Einstein before he creates the technologies that will lead the Allies to ultimate victory. After a successful mission, the Soviets return to the present and find the Allied position weakened. But before they can truly celebrate, they find out their actions have spawned a new threat and global superpower: the mysterious, technologically-advanced Empire of the Rising Sun. Welcome to World War III.
This is the game where RTS and strategy falls apart, Generals and Tiberium War seems as master piece in comparison to this
Major problems of this game are
1) Its reliance on Coop
3) Support Powers and Skirmish mode
Lets tear this game a new a-hole
1) Reliance on Coop
- On gamespy, of course why NOT ?
You can play with AI, but Human would be few times better and certain missions would be easier
Revora Net tried to fix it, but i still cannot play Coop with my friend and they refuse to fix the issue despite lots of people are reporting it
2) AI, arguably, RA3 AI is most cheapest and annoying CNC AI ever spawned
It has Omnivision, limitless funds and insane micro and macro
This ties with the topic bellow
3) Support powers, superweapons and Skirmish
This is my main issue why i gave this game 6, above average rating
Support powers are 90% Un counter able instant deletion powers
Like a bomb that warps inside your base
You let it go bang, it will destroy your buildings
You destroy it, it will explode anyway and destroy your buildings and units firing at it.
But worst thing is Magnetic Sattelite, this beam sucks all vehicles and mechanic infantry to space if it reaches them, it can be controled, but AI with its Omnivision it will always target your Harvesters, and there is no warning of that happening
Or it sucks your 12 Apocalyps tanks in few seconds and you wont even notice
There is no way to turn this **** off and it makes Skirmish **** if your units are getting deleted instantly
Skirmish is the gamemode i evade the most, JUST because of the Support Powers !
Thankfully they improved from Generals and you can build only single Superweapon of its kind (Attack/Support)
Modding is sooo limited and there is just soo many hardcoded things, this reminds me of DOW 2....
5) While the balance is somewhat OK, atleast in campaign
The game boils down to massing of strongest units because there is no reason to NOT do that
Highest Rated (12 agree) 10/10
Awesome game but the unit scaling needs some fixing
as for the mods,there are too many of them with uprising units
We need more mods that adds completely new things. Look at Shockwave, Tib Essence, and Paradox, they are doing it right.
