A Lot or a Little?

Some stereotypes, such as thick-accented Russian commander and Asian emperor.
Violence & Scariness
There is some violence and blood, but it's quite tame as it's played from a top-down perspective and cartoon-like.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this game has some violence and animated blood, this "Teen"-rated game is not very graphic compared to most other PC and console strategy games. Why? It's played primarily from an eagle's eye view (not to mention the action takes place more between units, such as vehicles, than people). Also, several of the fighting units in this over-the-top sci-fi tale are units such as sonic dolphins and fighting bears. Mild language includes words such as "damn" and "hell."
Is It Any Good?
Yes, its good as long as you don't mind having to micromange every facet of the conflict, including building bases and key structures, and deploying troops in a tactical fashion onto the battlefield. This sequel enjoys a tremendous amount of polish, both in the game's visual flare and in the delicate balancing of the three sides. Plus the mouse-based control is intuitive and responsive. Quite simply, RTS fans longing for the return of Command & Conquer Red Alert will be more than pleased with the latest chapter in the franchise.
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.
