AusGamers' resident strategy-buff Kosta Andreadis is back today with another RTS review. On Monday Dawn of War 2 expansion Chaos Rising scored highly but it looks like EA's Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight hasn't fared so well.
It works, and it doesnít. Itís enjoyable, and itís frustrating. It feels like a battle heavy RTS, and it feels like the RTS equivalent of a button masher.

Find out both why it works and why it doesn't in AusGamers' in-depth review.

That makes me sad, as I've really been keen to give this a bash - even with the internet connection DRM.. Now I'll definitely not drop the cash :(

I bought it last week, but not really cos I have any interest in multiplayer, I just want to see the end of the whole Kane thing. The new game mechanics are definitely kinda weird, but I'm only there for the dodgy cinematics :P

It still feels like C&C to me though, and its still a bit of fun. As for being a spamfest, I dunno, I thought C&C has always pretty much been a spamfest.

I'd heard a couple of the guys I work with saying that they've un-cheesed the cut scenes a bit?

I guess I'd grab/play it from a half-price steam sale or someone giving me a (legit) copy.. Not sure I'd want to pay to put up with the DRM otherwise..

Yeah, the cutscenes seem to have a bit higher production values, probably cos they spent more money on the production instead of paying well-known actors lots of money. Not that the acting is crap, its pretty good, its just they aren't hiring the likes of Sawyer from Lost or Six from BSG. They also made real sets instead of putting real actors against CGI sets which looks a lot better.

this game could have been truely awesome, but unfortunately i found it to be quite the fail...
the beta showed a little bit of hope for the multiplayer as it was fun, but when the full game was released i was dissapointed at how shit the single player was.
