I rarely express my dissatisfaction about a game, but let me say. This game is a horrible follow up on the C&C line. I have played C&C since the very beginning when a group of us would link our computers and just have fun making hundreds of tanks and sending them after each other. It was a blast to send 500 tanks at your friends, then hearing them react when they finally saw them coming. Having to play Online for everything is horrid. Not only does it drain bandwidth from others on your network but if the connection gets a little hinkie you get disconnected immediately. No way to explore and learn the new features at your own pace unless you have a massive ISP connection. In the end I am sad I spent money on something that will just sit in the drawer and collect dust after 15 minutes of playing.
