I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

C&C:RA2

This series never seems to end, and RA2 is another great addition to the C&C universe. 

Set in an alternate timeline, supposely after the events of the first Red Alert game, the soviets attack the USA in a full out aggression. AKA. WAR!

While not the best RTS with acting, the RA2 shows off some of its experience by correcting the mistakes of the previous game, with all the crappy expansion packs.

The acting is better than the first RA game, with improved voices and... ACTORS.

Tanya has one voice, instead of two in the previous game. Wonderful. Str she looks more like a diva, instead of a cold hearted commando that sinks destroyers with c4.

Side from some small descrepencies that the true C&C fan will notice (wheres KANE?)....

This game is alot of fun, sweet action, crazy missions, with some units that can really dish out the damage. Sadly, the game is kinda one sided in Mutilplayer. Any side with a superweapon practically wins the game.

Graphically, the game is better than C&C: TS, more detail to the buildings, and the stoviet style buidings are neat, when you think of the C&C universe having space age weapons and tiberium.

All and all, a good game.  Its better than the first one, but I would have loved it if Kane made a apperance that lead up to C&C3.
