Best Command and Conquer Games

What are the best C&C games? Tiberium versus Red Alert?

The Top TenXW

1Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2

Of course it's amazing because it's a WestWood game, and all of their games are amazing, I think that after WestWood died in 2010, the C&C games died with it... - thexfiles123

Red Alert 2 is a timeless, fun, and amazing game. It is one of the last games from Westwood, so it has that classic CnC feel to it. Even in an official competition on Command & Conquer's website, it won (beating Zero Hour by 1 vote).

This game was and is still superb, Though its worth noting, that to me, the "Yuri's Revenge" expansion is equal to Red Alert 2 in almost everyway. I absolutely loved the story twists.. And the time travel thing, So my style of story!

1 of the Best Game in my life. SERIOUS. NO JOKE.

2Command & Conquer: Generals

This is the best RTS and C&C game out there, I love everything it stands for, it's battles/campaign are just... Incredible. - thexfiles123

A special type of c&c that has many dedicated fans! Real time warfare and realistic game play makes this one of the best real time strategy games ever made.

This game man, this game. I had the most fun with this C&C than I did with the others. There's just a certain charm about it, perhaps something to do with building 20 scud storm missile silos... My personal favourite in the series.

Love everything about it. I have played all the other Command and Conquer games and none of them even come close to this one!

3Command & Conquer Generals: Zero Hour

I'm putting this expansion on the list because it is like a standalone game! Better graphics, new missions, units, medals, maps, mechanics, EVERYTHING is new! - thexfiles123

Game had the best online competition scene and was well developed. Despite the fact it has no real storyline/base like other CNC games, ZH delivers intense online play.

Mega awesome game-good graphics, cool music and more easy on not so hardcore players

I can't begin to tell you the amount of HOURS my friends and I played online skirmish! Serious online competition! Fantastic gameplay.

4Command & Conquer 3:Tiberium Wars

This is the second best C&C game, I play it every day, literally.. I even take it to school on my laptop and play it when we have gym I love this game, but Generals beats it because of the environmental damage Generals has ( If you place your tanks on train tracks, they will all get run over by tanks, a nuclear power plant can kill all your infantry, etc... ). - thexfiles123

Ok I do get the love for the old... But still there is lots of new to the idea "how a RTS should look and play like. For me personally this is C&C with best campaign, visuals, overall atmosphere. What else - this game felt like the C&C with most attention to details. About the gameplay I believe that modern A game are more serious and need to appeal mostly with being good (or great) on every aspect. The most complete game by this definition is definitely C&C TW

Good graphic and balance (considering C^^C saga) good campaign with even greater story. It's the only new era C^^C that isn't rush to market

It's better than Call of Duty

5Command & Conquer Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge

This is the game where they should have kept all the formatting and built of of it. if they could have made this game new like Star craft 2 it would be alive today. as they continued the franchise they destroyed all of the graphics when they had it perfect the way it was. people hate change! So keep it the same but add new stuff! So if anyone ever makes a game like this again and reads this post and uses what I said could easily beat any new ps4 Xbox1 garbage out there! People like this style and will always have a love for the games like this exact one

I had never played this type of game when I was a kid, used to just play Need for speed and stuff until my friend told me to try it, and I loved it! Can not stop playing for quite a while, love this game, after school I would just come straight home to play this game until its real late at night. I played the whole campaign over and over.

Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2: Yuri's revenge is my personal favourite C^^C game because it's got great units, a great story ark, and the gameplay is fast paced and fun.

I have played many command and conquer but this the best that I have ever played and it is very easy to play

6Command & Conquer Red Alert 3

It has the most interesting campaign out of all of the games on the list, it's fun/addictive and it's just plain amazing. - thexfiles123

You must play this game, it's impressive and cool graphics. I've play this everyday. Please vote for this and play.

Just overall a great game with good (for it's time) graphics and exciting story

7Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun

The ever changing terrain and the deployable units made this game fantastic. I loved it how you had to land your air units because of an oncoming ion storm or the monster - all - eating red veins would approach your base and kill everything in their way. Ice cracking when heavy units drove over etc... Amazing game for it's time!

Just great. Probably one of the best games to be created in the late 90's/early 00's. Overall amazing. The only annoying thing is the destructible terrain.

This game is Great. For it time and what they had to work with the made a pretty amazing game that kept me playing every day.

What a game, even just the thought of it takes me right back! Just pure simplistic strategy at its best.

8Command & Conquer: Red Alert

The best game ever made! EVERYBODY was playing this in the 90'ies, we used to talk all breaks in school about our progression and all that things. It was so awesome, particularly as it had the skirmish option that C&C lacked!

My first experience experience of C&C, I loved the feeling of massing a 'shed' load of tanks and troops and making an 'all-or-nothing' attack for the win, against the beautiful backdrop of snow terrain.

I have played this game since I was 4-5 and the graphics and gameplay were exceptional for it's time. Also my first experience of Command & Conquer as well as my first time touching a computer game (on the PS1, retaliation [still Red Alert laugh out loud]) and I was so happy that I could play it.

Really easy to learn, but hard to master is what makes a franchise really good. If only all of the Command and Conquer games were like this one.

Also, if you didn't know, Command & Conquer has been freeware on the PC since 2008. Just search around and you are able to play the best RTS game that will ever be made.

9Command & Conquer: Renegade

This is the last standlone game on the list, the other 2 will be expansion packs, but I don't think this game fits with the title at all, it's an FPS/Third Person game and... I don't know how they managed to call it a C&C game. - thexfiles123

While this may have been different from the usual C&C style games, I still had tons of fun playing this game, and I really enjoyed the MC. Dang it Havoc!

10Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath

I love to play Kane's wrath because this games has more military units and Kane (Joe Kucan) becomes anger of GDI - 09ShamsulBahriel

Kane's Wrath gets new units and also added sub-factions. It is the best game that I have ever seen

Kane's Wrath is the greatest C&C Games ever. Joe Kucan, my friend is my best game character ever... - 09ShamsulBahriel

Amazing expansion of amazing game.

11Command & Conquer: Tiberium Dawn

This is a good game but I couldn't find my favourite version 1.07 tiberium dawn

12Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun: Firestorm
13Command and Conquer Red Alert 3: Uprising

I played red alert 3 and I think it is the c&c best game. But I just got red alert 3 uprising and I think it is even more better because it has new units that are really epic. My favourite units are the giga fortress, harbinger gunship, the grinder and reaper.

14Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight

This game was fun, but no base building made it into a forgettable and un-addictive experience, it's singleplayer was fun but it's multiplayer is an insult to the Tiberium saga... - thexfiles123

I was extremely disappointed when I bought this game and realized there was no base building. I wasn't fan of the crawler...
