Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun

Gameplay Video (Including Live Action Cutscenes) Recorded by erlNite on YouTube

Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun (1999, Windows) is a mildly entertaining game for anyone who likes strategy games. The game contains engaging live action cutscenes between levels. Unfortunately, when you get to the higher levels & multiplayer (up to 8, internet-capable), you end up with a problem common among strategy games: build-a-million-of-the-best-guys-and-hurl-them-at-the-enemy-before-they-do syndrome.

Though the graphics have been improved greatly over the first game, you might appreciate them more if you have played the original. I own Tiberian Sun and I enjoyed it a lot before I quit. The first part of the single-player campaign is the best part of any strategy game I’ve played, but the after the “Rescue the Mutant” mission is over, the gameplay and story just gets repetitive and overdone. Therefore, you may want to skip this one and try Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 or a later game in the series.
