Sounds good. I just hope it is better than C&C3. I love the sound of the Empire of the Rising Sun.

C&C3 was worthy of the name and stood shoulder to shoulder with its predecesors in my opinion. I hope this does the same.

I'm so excited by that prospect, I've just felt a little bit of wee trickling out.

I always preferred Red Alert's wacky worlds to C&Cs po-faced futuristic feel. I'm REALLY looking forward to this now. You guys have just made my day. :D

It looks a little futuristic, advanced units and 'transformations'...Still, if it has the presentation, the music, the great cheesy voice-acting, and actors in vids, then that will be just dandy.

In a fit of nostalgia, I played Red Alert 2 again. Soviet missions were so much fun. Alas, I have lost my Allied disc. The horror, the horror.

Tesla... Boats? :shock:

That's probably not a wise combination. Probably devised by the same bright spark who thought putting Japan in this game was a good idea...

I think Japan could work quite well, just as long as the "anime" influences aren't too strong. Hopefully it'll be much more kamikaze than Dragonball Z.

The thing is, the Allies and the Soviet Union in the Red Alert games were super powers. You can understand how history would develop to the point the two were at in RA1 at least (even if you'd still have to suspend your belief somewhat, even more so in RA2). Japan on the other hand... Their Empire was rubbish. The vast majority of it based on oppertunism, fifteen years of non-stop fighting and the fact that the Americans didn't care enough about China to oppose them strongly. Unless EA are planning to tell me 'The Alien Space Bats did it' (which, looking at how RA3 is developing, is probably as good an excuse as any!) I'm not buying into Japan as a super power anymore than I bought into Yuri as a sub-faction.

I agree totally.

The only thing I ask after reading that is to allow us to Zoom out, never could stand the restrictive view in C&C3 far too close stopped me buying it!

I am not asking for Supreme Commander like zoom options however if this could be implemented too it would be AMAZING, view has to got at least 50% further than C&C3 though!!!

C&C 3 was bad, it couldnt hold a candle to the original game. The same will be true of RA3, I'd be VERY surprised if it wasnt!
EA Suck!

I see they sill haven't sorted the view out, previously I could have sworn this was a RTS Game, now it seems like a Mini-RTS, where are your large, or even medium size battles, the view is so restrictive, can only see about 6 units on screen, what a Joke!

I'll buy a real RTS thanks!

I really enjoyed CnC3 and still do, but i do think how much better it would of been if westwood had done it :) But a good attempt by EA, but sadly your never match the raw talent that westwood had.
