traditional strategy games, Command & Conquer offers real-time combat.
The emphasis isnt on turn taking or solving tactical problems
like fuel, food, and bullets, but on real-time thrills, spills, and
old-time Westwood followers might recognize that Command & Conquer
is based on the same game engine as Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty
(on IBM and Amiga) and Dune: The Battle for Arrakis (Sega Genesis).
Undoubtedly, game play in Command & Conquer shares the same elements
of addictive fun as its predecessors: balancing real-time combat along
with city/base-building simulation, and the race to gather precious
resources to finance the players combat and building efforts.
But while the gameplay balance was preserved, Command
& Conquers artificial intelligence
has been greatly enhanced
to take advantage of the players strategies and weaknesses.Rarely
will the computer make the same mistake twice. You can expect to see
sneak attacks, advanced patrols,
and entire convoys striking at multiple weak points at once. In Command
the outcome of battle is not determined by your adversarys weaknesses,
but your own.
Command & Conquer you must first choose who you fight for. Does
your allegiance go to the evil Brotherhood of Nod,
terrorist faction bent on world dominance? Or, do you choose to fight
for the good of all and support the United Nations Global Defense Initiative
Command & Conquer, you can expect twice as much game play without
feeling youre playing the same game over and over.
Added to the addictive fun of the games play are the animated
cinematic sequences. Employing the latest cutting-edge graphics techniques,
Westwood staff artists working on Command & Conquer combined the
use of rendered and digitized full-motion video. Set to a script written
by professional screenwriters, these animated sequences set the game
play in an exciting story that places you right in the middle of the
because you asked for it, Command & Conquer will allow you to go
head-to-head against other commanders in specially designed missions
over a modem (2 player) or network (4 player)! As most of us know, nothing
feels better than blasting your friends into dust, then gloating in
triumph afterward. All of this, combined with the ability to play good
or evil, modem or network, human or computer AI, makes Westwoods
Command & Conquer a game with tons of
of Command & Conquers cool
features include: Command & Conquer comes from Westwood Studios,
the team behind award-winning titles including Dune II: The Battle for
Arrakis, Lands of Lore and the Legend of Kyrandia series; a wide range
