nope. EA have ruined the series by adding that anime faction.. and the whole game is too much cartoony for my taste.

Its again going to be on the SAGE engine, which is probibly older then a few people on this forum. No RA 3 is all hipe, its going to suck, period; its only relation to any c&c series is the name, nothing else, the true "C&C" died when Westwood went down the drain. Just my opinion anyways.
They offered me BETA because I won the OMC4 mapping contest in C&C 3, I turned them down and quit cnc3. :D

Just like the Scrin in C&C 3? Do you see a series of disgrace building? :p

I brought the original with my pocket moneys
along time ago and it was the best game ever.
Red alert was also a hit but everything else after that seemed
a bit trashy,

true ea rapes games. but what i could see from the current movies and trailers ... well looks alot like ra2 gameplay feeling. And i dont give a **** about great video's or highly detailed units. all i want is gameplay. alto i did saw some units wich made me lol, and the empire of the rising sun disturbs me. Looks like a race wich was added in too fill up the game. like the scrin ...

For once it appears not only is kron typing normally... but he is actually making sense for a change :p

I remember C&C Tiberium Sun the old westwood one, I had it at the age of about 5 or so and played it till about the age of 10 (when the disc broke). One of the best games ever i reckon :) and yeah the new C&C are just lacking

Well as you saud, it's a Japanese schoolgirl. But yeah, I know what you mean, it's just that those kinds of labels bother me. It's a bit like saying that the Allies are the American/European manga faction.

I do admit there's a lot of soft p-o-r-n (apparently we have some kind of censorship on this site) material in RA3. :p

Now after having about a weeks experience i can comment on this game.
For a change it appears EA didnt fully kill a decent game, I mean they focused too much on getting hot girls into it and its advertising than on the gameplay.
The gameplay so far has been rather good, the campaigns arent too easy but their not difficult on the whole but still take a lot of time to clear.

The Empire Of The Rising Sun seems too unrealistic to work but surprisingly it does, they are the rushing race with fast build speeds and unrestricted building, the transforming units also make them a very formidable enemy, (just imagine, you have them in your sights with a plane or two and you think that group of vehicles has no anti-air and is going to be easy prey, then they transform into dogfighting fighter jets and thats when you know your going to have to pay close attention to the fight at hand)

I have a few problems with the game however, the skirmish AI is too easy at easy and at normal what it should be at hard and just dont attempt a brutal enemy.... they start with double your cash and have double the unit cap... It took both me and a mate to take down 1 brutal enemy....

Also the Online is rather good but it gets quite limited as many people use the same tactics, a popular one is to build up many japanese artillery boats to take out the base in a fast efficient way from a safe distance...
Another problem with online is the matching, it has a ranking system in place to show your win/loss and other such stuff but that does not come into play, I (rank 367) was matched up with a guy (rank 16), he had 267 wins and 12 losses... i was doomed from the start.

Overall it was a fun game and was worth buying, somehow EA managed to make themselves a game which didnt suck from the word go..

8/10



P.S, sorry for bringing back this old topic from the grave

The unit cap of 50... the brutal enemies get double that and so can have 100 units

I've played it too and I've never heard of no pop cap. It's not mentioned in the game, in any review I've read nor any ra3 related forum post I've seen.

edit: I think he's talking about a 360 version.

I saw the Japanese faction, noticed the EA label on the box and utterly gave up on that game. EA raped Westwood, nothing more to say.

okay fair enough, and by the way the english was probably better than many other peoples i have seen anyway.

On the Xbox the limit is just underneath the minimap, (0/50)

I suppose the Xbox limit is to prevent people from getting too many troops and not being able to control them all due to the nature of RTS games on a console.

I guess so... and besides 50 is plenty, generally all you need is about 5 shogun battleships, 10 sea wings, 15 mecha tengu and whatever you want then (yuriko is a good choice)

besides im a natural pro, and with my master shadowymoon above me nothign can me at any rts game... exept starcraft... i get my @$$ kicked at that game... any who i think the 50 cap limit puts me down on my very profeshinol-ISM at this game like i get century bombers and load em with and flank their base wile i hase gurd. tank at their base with a mix of peace keepers. this game is another failure by EA... dawn of war 2 for the win

It didnt fail half as bad as one would expect.

And yes i also hate the shoguns, their so overpowered and well i suck at naval combat so i tend to stay clear of that...
