I’ve been fortunate enough to get some time with the Command & Conquer 4 beta. From what I’ve played so far it’s fun, fast paced RTS.
Before I get into my review of the game let me explain something shameful. I am a C&C virgin. I have never played a C&C game before this. I was into Age of Empires and that was enough to waste all my time in high school. So if you’re looking for the opinion of a hardened C&C fan go somewhere else.

C&C 4 lets you pick a game from a server list, auto-match, or create a game with a party of friends. Once the game starts you choose whether you want to play offense, defense, or support. You get a mobile crawler as your only base unit. The units you can make are specific to what role you choose to play. The objective is to capture and hold strategic points similar to Company of Heroes. You can make units while your base is mobile but you have to park it to let the units out. It reminds me a lot of the British in CoH.
Part 2 tomorrow!
Keep on gaming people!
