As the Soviet Union was beginning to disillusion by the massive powers of the western world, General Nikolai Krukov (Andrew Divoff) and Colonel Anatoly Cherdenko (Tim Curry) with Dr. Gregor Zelinsky (Peter Stormare) makes a last ditch effort to save the Union by using Zelinsky's latest invention, a time machine. Cherdenko, Krukov, and Zelinski time warp to the 1920s, and kill off Albert Einstein (Smokey Miles). As they come back to their original time, they realize that the Soviet Union is a better faction than the western world, and Cherdenko becomes the Premier of the Soviet Union. But, another faction is now rising to power, The Empire of the Rising Sun, and they intend to invade the Soviet Union. With three factions fighting, only one can be the one standing to rule the world.

One way for EA games to promote this game was to make fake Presidential electoral ads with President Ackerman, since because the game was released in 2008, an American Presidential election year. The slogan for Ackerman's election was "Screw 'em all". After the election, commandandconquer.com even made a concession speech from President Ackerman. See more
The Soviets try to eliminate Einstein before he can help the Alliesby creating weapons that far surpass the Soviets. But what the Soviets don't know is that Einstein is what also created the time machine (which he used to eliminate Hitler before he formed the Nazi party and thus triggered the European theater of World War 2), so eliminating him would create a time paradox and thus would erase even the soviet created time machine.
