CnC owns, RA owns also, but don't make multiple topics on the same thing.

I love them. I remember first playing the original command and conquer on my Nintendo 64. Now I got the first decade series and its real fun!

I played the demo for tiberium wars and i loved that too! I would like to get it eventually, but my computer lagged playing it :thumbsup: .

Is there another game, or games, that C & C is similar to?

I guess Supreme Commander is pretty similar to the Commander and Conquer series.

I enjoyed the first couple of versions of C&C, beginning with one for the PS. However, with each new version, there isn't really that much difference in basic game play, and each successive version seems to bore me faster than the previous.

Er, roughly, in as much as they are both considered RTS games.

Supreme Commander puts much more emphasis on large-scale macro-management rather than high-speed micro-management of a handful of units. I'd also argue that the depth of the game play in Supreme Commander is much greater.

On the other hand, I have to give credit to C&C...the original game was my first RTS. I played RA and RA2, and also a bit of Tiberian Sun. I never did get into Generals...but then, that game was so different from the original formula that it probably should be dealt with on its own.

I would say that the strength of the series, for multi-player, is that it is easy to learn (relatively speaking) yet provides enough depth to produce interesting games for veteran players.

I am sure C&C3 will be fun, but it's pretty much the same formula; after playing SupCom I don't think I can go back to simply spamming and rushing one kind of tank.

I love the CnC series! I've got CnC 3, and like it, but I still think that I've dumped many hours into Zero Hour....gotta love that expansion! :thumbsup:
