Dawn of the Tiberium Age (DTA) is a stand-alone mod that combines Tiberian Dawn (C&C 95) and Red Alert. While classic mode gets as close to the original game-play and balance as possible, Enhanced mode provides improved game balance and a lot of fun new stuff. DTA features many customization options for Skirmish and multiplayer (where you can play as GDI, Nod, Allies and Soviet on over 100 maps), challenging original singleplayer missions, as well as co-op missions. Since this is a stand-alone mod, you don't require anything but the mod itself to be able to play: the original game is not required.
The Dawn of the Tiberium Age: ****: Look For the Dawn
Dawn of the Tiberium Ages (DTA) is a Tiberian sun mod that looks to recreate the game that started it all, Tiberian Dawn. In that regard, DTA is a massive success, with the mod capturing the look, spirit and feel of the original game. It does not stop there however, as DTA takes Tiberian Dawn to the next level, including skirmish modes and online support for fans.
Graphically, DTA mimics it's ancestral father perfectly, the charmingly simple graphics being recreated smoothly for the Tiberian Sun engine. Where DTA really shines is with the addition of the "enhanced" mode which allows the player to play with new units and new game modes, including a naval style of skirmish. DTA also boats a few single player missions, but these are few at the moment but there is promise of new ones to come in the future.
There a not many bugs, although the limits of the Tiberian Sun engine are shown from time to time. Despite this, game play is smooth and relatively bug free and balanced.
Anyone who grew up playing the traditional Command and Conquer game will love this mod, as it brings back the old style of Tiberian Dawn, with several pleasant twists.
Free Standalone game based on a classic... Whats more to ask for?
This mod is amazing despite a few bugs, I can't wait for the next release!
Well, DTA goes beyond being a simple mod for a game to being a compilation of games itself. Essentially it features the first C&C game improved and the Red Alert 1. Full MP support is good with its custom lobby made thanks to the PPM initiative. It's worth a download if you are looking especially to replay the grand old C&C now more modernised.
The maps are diverse and there are a lot of them and the mod is quite lively for a game it was based on. No major issues with its functionality even on operating systems like Win7, the graphics now somewhat shine with emotions. An Arctic GDI A-10 & resupply base in one of the missions had this feel that both TS and TD never had before. Too bad the number of missions is very limited and the original TD campaigns will most likely never be remade. I can recommend DTA if you are looking in particular for a small weight RTS game that has a lively MP base. That's kind of how I see it minus the obvious C&C heritage.
A great, if not fantastic remake of an old classic. A must try for any diehard Command and Conquer fan, and especially now that part of the Win8 problem has been circumvented.
Very well designed mod. It captures the original feel of Tiberian Dawn and with the Tiberian Sun Engine. Also having an original and enhanced game choice caters to all players. well done
I love the mod for TS it bring the TD feeling ande the tow modes is amazing. Good work. ;)
Best of the best of the best among the best clasics brought by best team.
*cough* too much "best" words
The sole reason for it not being 10/10 is because there is always room for improvement. Pretty much the best TibDawn experience available.
