Like most self-respecting RTS fans, I’m at this moment playing and loving the hell out of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. Having been a long time Red Alert fan, I’m just eating up the hammy action — good God does every actor ham it up in spectacular fashion! It’s just awesome.
I don’t want to write a whole review here on Rifles Ready!, but I’ll just venture to say you should probably consider getting this game. It’s a blast and the graphics are even more gorgeous than in C&C 3. The whole package has been done so many times before, even by Electronic Arts alone, but EA has managed to shine the C&C RTS to a mirror polish after so many iterations. That benefits RA3 considerably, and it feels very solid and fun straight out of the box.
I’ll be swinging back into the thick of things in a couple days, after the thrill of arcade-like tank and infantry battles get boring. COH’s signature 1% health bug on armor will soon seem refreshing rather than frustrating.
