Command & Conquer 4 isn't really the Command & Conquer most people remember. The campaign feels more focused on completing objectives with smaller groups than building the huge armies of C&Cs past; while the online multiplayer has players striving to hold control points rather than simply crushing the enemy. Depending on how much you liked the original formula, you may well find yourself lamenting the franchise's distinctive brand of classic real-time strategy.

The one thing that hasn't changed is the franchise's over-acted live-action cutscenes, which feature middling actors giving voice to thoroughly campy lines. If this decidedly B-movie style of narrative hasn't done anything for you in the past, it won't convert you now. However, players who get a kick out of the franchise's corny melodrama will probably eat it up. It's fitting that the final game in the franchise remains true to its narrative roots, even if its classic style of play doesn't.

Online interaction: Players can go up against one another or work as a team together online. Open text chat is supported. Common Sense Media does not recommend open online play for children under 12 years of age.
