Command & Conquer 4 draws the epic conclusion to the beloved Tiberium universe, where fans will learn the fate of Earth, Nod, Tiberium, GDI and most importantly, Kane’s motivations behind his decade-long plan.

    I’m shocked and amazed. Even I bought it for the PC and I never buy PC games.

    C&C is tired and old – unless they introduce something radical. World in Conflict leads the way in RTS gaming on the PC, and the original dawn of war – not the lame duck dow2

    Supreme Commander is better than World in Conflict.

    I did enjoy C&C3 a whole bunch actually, but from the screen shots and pats blurb up there, It doesn’t sound much like C&C to me really, but what the hell, I’ll buy it anyway :)

    Sounds like it has the RPG style gameplay of DoW2, mixed with the build everything mothership of Homeworld and the class based gameplay of World in Conflicts multiplayer mode, but in all modes.
