Did You Know?

Trivia

Red Alert was originally planned to be an expansion to Command & Conquer (1995) but ended up so good that Westwood made it into a game in its own right. See more »

Goofs

The familiar United Nations building in New York plays a part in the story. Yet in this history, the Nazis never came to power, and therefore the history of the UN founding never happened. This plot element should instead involve the League of Nations in Switzerland in place of the UN. See more »

Quotes

General Gunter von Esling: Commander, I wish I could say I had good news. But not all of our battles fare as well as yours. The Greek front is collapsing, and Germany... is all but taken.

Great but Hard
10 August 2006 | by gangstahippieSee all my reviews

Rated T for Violence.

I played Command And Conquer Red Alert a couple of times at my neighbors house.THe game is very good for its time.It has top-down graphics like Postal and Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2 and the gameplay is awesome.This is the only command and conquer game I ever played.I'm not much of a strategy game fan.I'm more of a fighting and shooting game fan so I have not played much games like this.The game is very hard.You have some money to start with and you must choose things like battle stations,electricity stuff you will need to defeat your enemies.You send trucks to find gold as well.This game requires lots of thinking and strategy.Command And Conquer Red Alert is a fun but hard game and I recommend it to any strategy game fan.

8/10
