Just a word of warning about C&C4

#1 Edited by VACkillers (1021 posts) -

They never changed anything from the beta's and didn't listen to word of what the majority of the community was asking or telling them what needed to be changed. Im sure some of you will know most of the details about the new C&C4 Tiberian Twilight but for those that are fans of the C&C series and dont know, there is no base building for one, i think thats been known since nov/dec of last year i think? but basicly that was no supprise, so dont go buying this game thinking its anything remotely close to what you've been use to in the past. This game uses DRM, you have to be connected to the internet 100% of the time in order to play this game, even if you are playing offline you "still" have to be connected to the internet.
 
This game feels very much like a port of RA3, the units i think look totally crap, but thats just my personal opinion, has the same RA3 cartoon feel to it with the units, along with that stupid green highlight around the units, (RA3 had yellow) which basicly makes the units feel like they've just been copied and pasted onto the terrain and not part of the enviroment like previous C&C games. The Main campaigne is very shoot also, i havne't got to the end yet, but i've already heard reports that its extremely poor and definitely not a good way to finish the series off.
 
The multiplayer side of things can be really fun, i actually liked the multiplayer part of the game when i was in the beta's, but the balacing is such an issue, in order to use the bigger better or specialized units, you have to earn XP points in order to unlock them, and what happens (even in the beta) was that you'll be thrown into a match that you will generally go up against players that have a lot more XP then you, and just steam roll over you with their superior units, there is a unit cap which i think is good actually, this way no one can swarm your team with 400 units of the same thing, and the bigger units use more unit points so you cant hav 50 of the special units either, but the balacing is an issue. The way the multipalyer is setup is really kool, but playing the entire campgaine like that is absolutely terrible, it feels like a multiplayer component rather then having to play the entire game this way....
 
this is just my opinions though so far, and basicly just wanting to warn some ppl who were expecting a traditional C&C game to conclude the tiberium series... Some of you will LOVE this game, and thats awesome, theres definitely something about it thats fun, but i am very disapointed with it so far myself....
