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.
everything looks great, but plays... not so well.
good sides of the mod:
live action cutscenes like in every proper C&C game, good and reasonable looking units, custom soundtrack (which varies wildly in performance and recording quality) and unit voices, varied units an abilities.
lots and lots of bug everyshere - terrain, abilities, units, scripts, you name it; bad balance - many units feels weaker than their price would suggest, some because of how bugged they are or how much managing a unit requires to be of any use; some powers are too situational, but requires too much to be usable outside of situations set up by the campaign; no way to check mission objectives in campaign unless when they decide to pop up on the screen for a brief amount of time; some insignificant descriptions are not in english.
all in all, it was not TOO terrible, but the campaign was rather frustrating to play through.
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.
