Unlike traditional strategy games, Command & Conquer offers real-time combat. The emphasis is not on turn taking or solving tactical problems like fuel, food, and bullets, but on real-time thrills, spills, and kills. This series of games is for the person that likes to fight with his head.

In Command & Conquer you must first choose who you fight for. Does your allegiance go to the evil Brotherhood of Nod, a terrorist faction bent on world dominance? Or, do you choose to fight for the good of all, and support the United Nations Global Defence Initiative (GDI)? With Command & Conquer, you can expect twice as much game play, without the feeling you’re playing the same game over and over.

The resource management aspect of Command and Conquer is one of its best features. It’s in this area in which your strategy can either succeed or fail. For example, if you prioritise building units that are not suited to the objectives, you can make life difficult for yourself. It is necessary to develop your arsenal throughout the game to acquire the more devastating weapons. Figuring out what the best plan of attack, resources allowing, is what Command and Conquer is all about.
