In keeping with the series's trademarks, the Allies and the Soviets are at it again, with well known units such as the attack dog and the Kirov bomber coming back to our screens.
However, this title takes a leaf (or a few) from other titles of the genre, such as Command & Conquer Generals ("General Points" and "General Abilities" mechanics, a third faction, Empire of the Rising Sun). Sea-faring units are back and greatly emphasized, as are the amphibian abilities of many units.
As seen from the multiplayer beta and various teaser trailers, the graphism is very much reminiscent of it's predecessor, Red Alert 2, but the graphics quality is cutting edge, taking full advantage of current High Defenition technology.
The storyline is yet largely undivulged, but promises to be as compelling as any in the series, and, naturally, narrated in several live-action sequences acted out by a star-studded cast.
A must have title for series buffs, genre enthusiasts and casual players alike.
