With the release of Command &
Conquer last year, Westwood Studios broke new ground in the computer
real-time strategy genre. C&C has been
heralded as one of the year's best, selling over 1 million copies to
date worldwide. Thousands of people challenge each other daily, with
the war raging over phone lines and the Internet as all strive for supremacy
over their peers.
Now, Westwood Studios prepares to once again re-define the real-time strategy game with Command & Conquer: Red Alert. The prequel to C&C, Red Alert probes deeper into the mystery of the C&C universe, giving the player all new strategies and elements to further their conquests in solo, LAN, and modem play.
The story: World War II never happened. At least, not the way we think of it. Hitler never rose to power and threatened all of Europe - something more terrible happened: Joseph Stalin.
The Soviet empire is storming into Europe. Towns are falling and countries collapsing before the overwhelming might of the Soviet forces. Does anyone stand a chance, or will the red storm engulf all of Europe?
New Features for Red Alert include :
Add to this the superb 3D cinematics and audio that people expect from Westwood Studios, and the result is obvious - A game so addicting you'll swear the history books are wrong.
