This is like a simulated version of the traditional game battleship and appropriate for any child capable of playing the likes of chess

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The gameplay doesn't advance the RTS genre much, but it's a good formula. With only one resource to gather and relatively small tech trees, players spend most of the time building up the right mix of troops, armor, and aircraft to take on the enemy.

Like most RTS games, the game is all about mixing the right number and types of troops to blow up, kill, and otherwise destroy enemy forces. Unlike some other RTS games that feature economic or political victories, C&C 3 only allows players to win by completing the objectives, which usually include destroying vital enemy bases and troops. All in all C&C 3 is a solid RTS game -- not a lot new, but fun nonetheless.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
