  • Do u guys know when it would come to "Malaysia App store" for that matter??
  • And my productivity drops to 0... :D
  • OMG - my inner child is being reborn. I've got to go buy this now... the hell with work.
  • this is too much, first classic doom and now c & c im in rose tinted specs heaven! :)
  • 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!
  • i wish this was warcraft II... this would have been so much more of an amazing game
  • 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.
