Command and Conquer Renagade

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

Command and Conquer is a series that has a HUGE following amongst strategy gamers. Command and Conquer: Renegade is their entry into the first person shooter arena. The familiar sides of GDI and NOD are present, and all of your favorite weapons and vehicles are available for enjoyment.

The graphics are *really* nice, and shine in quite a number of areas. Well worth making sure you have a GEforce 3 or 4 for. Another great feature is that you can enter vehicles and even share them with friends. One person can jump into the driver's seat and the other can leap into the back to man the guns. There are APCs for transporting small teams.


The loading and recoil graphics on the weapons feel very realistic. You've got your weapons that you know and love from the various command and conquer games, including the laser rifle, chain gun, grenade launcher, flame thrower, chemical sprayer and more. A sniper rifle lets you zoom in on the action.

It's very much like you were actually in a command and conquer game. The harvesters bring you in money which you can then spend. Save it up, and you can buy yourself vehicles. If you're Nod, a plane will fly in with your purchase!

Sure, single player can be a bit boring. But as in most of these first person shooters, the internet multiplay is where the game really shines. Single player is really just a training arena until you 'graduate' to on line play. You can play with a team of 10 or more friends from around the world, working together as a group to coordinate your attack against the enemies. Just as in command and conquer, you have a base and have to defend it while destroying your enemy's base. You can blow up your enemy's bases by blasting them from the outside, or blowing them up from the inside!

With the HUGE number of HalfLife players out there, this is a giant step up in terms of graphics. The vehicles also make a great addition. It compares nicely with Halo, although Halo can't support large team play and isn't "really" internet enabled right now. If you find a fun group of players to team up with, you can easily get lost in the game for weeks, if not months!
