App Review – Command & Conquer: Red Alert

The Command & Conquer series is one of the best multiplayer franchises around, so it’s somewhat staggering that this otherwise impressive effort lacks any sort of multiplayer mode. It’s been announced in a future update, but it should have been included from the beginning. Still, gripes aside, this is an otherwise impressive effort and, while it lacks the depth and skill of the home computer forms, fans will still be impressed with its slick presentation, great visuals and varied play. Sadly there’s a lack of strategy in Red Alert. While there are plenty of different troops and vehicles, the inability to build bases and the general shortness of the campaigns makes Red Alert’s £3.99 price tag quite steep.
