A disaster.

Asrahn | June 11, 2014 | Review of Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight

Diverting almost completely from what has made the C&C series what it was, Tiberian Twilight largely skips base building (leaving you with a MCV with a set amount of times it can be destroyed before you lose the game, and a few defensive buildings) in favour of more small-scale, tactical combat that frankly does not fit the genre. As much as it is a bold, new direction, it is also a failure in realizing what it attempts; lacking both in debt and strategic complexity. The endeavour to bring some manner of player progression, as done with superior titles such as C&C 3: Kane's Wrath, ends up falling flat and serves only to diminish the early game's options - effectively making the game and its few tactical choices seem even less complex than they potentially are.

I played the campaign through in its entirety, and while it was nice to see an end (?) to the C&C storyline, or at the very least Kane's part, I could not help but feel the need to exert physical retribution on those who butchered my favorite RTS series of all time.

Absolutely not recommended; there is only pain to be found within.
