So pathetic

I was so excited when this game first came out. Then extremely disappointed. The lack of space to build, the lack of time given to do anything, and the lack fun make this game nothing like its pc predecessor. If you love c&c games, don't waste your time or money on this pathetic game. I waited over a year and decided, hey, I'll download it again, even buy it for my iPad since its on sale, surely they've made major updates in a years time.... WRONG! No graphics updates, no spacing updates, NOTHING. Hell, there's parts of this game that don't even make sense. An absolute disgrace to the c&c franchise. I had finally gotten over all my annoyances and was in the middle of a skirmish, had all my buildings built, was mounting up for an attack when out of nowhere..... The whole app CRASHES! So when I open it back up, I see a "Continue", so at first I'm relieved, until I tap it and it starts my entire skirmish over from the very beginning. WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING A CONTINUE IF IT DOESN'T DO JUST THAT??? So I deleted this app, writing this review, and will no longer be playing this game again. Thanks

This rocks, and no crashes

I have read through comments on many games and some say crashes all the time while other say they have never had a crash. Those people whose don't crash have IPads. So if you have an iPad, almost none of your games will crash, like me. Now to the review.

This game is very good, nice smooth controls and I like the cartoonish atmosphere. Although I was anticipating naval units like the original red alert games. But there are some minor tweaked that the developers should do. 1, the defenses are too weak. I'll have like 2 turrets which get taken down by only a tank and a missile soldier, even while they are being repaired. 2, they should at least try to put naval units in the game. And 3, bigger maps. I'll give it 4 stars for now, unless you start building up on this great game.

Great app ust not as fun as the original

I don't know but I love the original command and conquer on the pc but this app just kind of makes me miss that and also I don't know what all the fuss in the reviews are about this app has never crashed for me NEVER idk if it is because I use hd iPad or what. it is a great app but the graphics and touch/sensitivity could be a little better over all i think this app was worth the 5$ if you are not sure to buy it or not. Buy it it is 100% worth the pay I would give this an overall rating of 4 1/2 stars but I just put 5 because you can't do four and a half stars. Anyways.... Great app
