Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is a science fiction real time strategy game released in 2007 by Electronic Arts. The game is set in 2047 and continues the story of the Global Defence Initiative, Brotherhood of Nod and the new alien faction of Scrin.
If you’ve played a Command & Conquer game before everything will feel familiar and your whole experience will be filled with nostalgic moments. If it’s your first time in the neck of these woods then don’t get discouraged though as the gameplay is still welcoming to newcomers although you’ll have the best experience if you return to the very start of the series.
Just like any real time strategy game you’ll be in control of your own base as you choose how to spend the resources you gather. This resource is Tiberium and gathered from the various crystal patches that you’ll find scattered around the map. By assigning harvesters to these resource fields you’ll be able to grow your military outposts into something that is defendable and capable of unleashing large scale attacks on enemies.
With a good array of buildings and units to spend your hard earned Tiberium there is room for all strategies in each game mission. While these missions generally require you to defend your base and take care of an enemy threat the variety of environments make the story very enjoyable to play through. This is quite an achievement considering the game has nearly 40 missions split between the three faction specific campaigns. The campaigns all tie together nicely and each comes with their own style, units and story.
Beyond the campaign mode you’ll find a well-design skirmish mode for more single player action to practice your skills before jumping into the online options of Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars.
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars could have easily gone the other way but EA has done a wonderful job at capturing the essence of the C&C series in Tiberium Wars.
