Waffles says:

Multiplayer will be killer, let's hope this sells well and proves that full RTS games can thrive on the iPhone!

Its really good fun. The campaigns are short, but fun. But the skirmish mode is wicked. It only comes with 2 maps for skirmish, but 6 more are available as DLC for 59p. When this gets multiplayer it will be astounding. The controls are great, much closer to a true PC experience than any console port I've seen.
A lot of folks in the TA forums seem to be having crashing issues, but this seems to be people who aren't on the latest software and/or are running jailbroken iPhones. I personally have been playing for about 5-6 hours now and its only crashed once reloading after a phonecall.
at £5.99 i'd say its a little light. But £6.58 for the DLC as well and i'd say its a winner.

YES! Love the C&C series, but not a huge fan of the $9.99 price. I guess if I paid that for Madden 10 then I can stop my whining and get this awesome game. Multiplayer will be awesome!

patcom8 says:

i wish this was warcraft II... this would have been so much more of an amazing game

Al says:

Back in middle school, we played the original C&C and RA to death. I'm loving this, I hope it works alright on the 3G.
