Top 10 Best Command & Conquer Games

What are the best C&C games? Tiberium versus Red Alert?
The Top Ten
1 Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 Product Image

Played the original C&C, then went to Red Alert. After many hours of RA, Tiberian Sun. RA2 dropped, and I never played a game for so many hours. This was the pentacle of the C&C franchise, with Zero Hour right behind. RA2/YR goes down in history as the BEST C&C game of all time.

I think I started playing games because of this game. I really damn Loved it. I think I played it continuously for 10 years since it's release. An I was waiting for a really damn awesome sequel for this game. But RA3 Was not what I was waiting for. RA2 had better gameplay and units, better story and everything to the limit. I was wondering If they would ever do an anniversary remake of this game in Future. Maybe for RA 1

I used to play this game on my old Windows XP computer for hours. Used to stay up all night battling until I got the win. I just wish there were a little more offensive troops and artillery in the arsenal list. I did used to get bored after a while creating and using the same ones all the time. Still, awesome gamr though.

Glad to see good sense prevails in the number of people voting for this masterpiece. It has great gameplay and well designed scenarios, both sides fun to play, great sense of humor, a lot of beautiful and sexy ladies. RA3 was OK, but not nearly as memorable. I need to dust RA2 off and play it again.

2 Command & Conquer: Generals Command & Conquer: Generals Product Image

I can't choose between RA2 and Generals ZH...But since Generals made a massive improvement, graphics, gameplay and mechanism, and the greatest thing is it was released only 3 years after the RA2 was released. Also the mods for generals (Like shockwave and ROTR) are the bests. So I'll vote for Generals.

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.

This is simnply, in my opinion, the best Command and Conquer game out there. The graphics may not be the best of the series, but the semi-realistic setting and the different factions more than make up for it.

By far the best Command & Conquer game I've ever played in all of my existence. There is a fair amount of difficulty with mostly smart AI. The scenarios are real-time. Etc. Etc.

3 Command & Conquer Generals: Zero Hour Command & Conquer Generals: Zero Hour Product Image

Absolutely epic game. I ended up sinking so many hours into this game when EA announced that Generals 2 was not going to be released after the alpha testing, it was a very disappointing let down. This game can run on win10 but EA haven't made that easy either and requires a patched copy.

I love all C&C games, but I think zero hour has taken it to another level of realism and strategy. I just don't get why EA are abandoning the franchise! Even if the next C&C is just upgraded the graphics and a new campaign, I would definitely buy it!

More units, the addition of generals, and new missions make this a worthy improvement over the original. However, I HIGHLY recommend you get both. Generals + Zero Hour = the best C&C has to offer.

The one I spent the most time on. You can do so much more than in Generals that make the game so much more rewarding. I haven't played it since 2005. I'm playing it tonight... February, 2017.

4 Command & Conquer 3:Tiberium Wars Command & Conquer 3:Tiberium Wars Product Image

After growing up playing the first Command and Conquer game, I decided to take another look at the franchise later on, so I bought the Ultimate collection which includes all the games, and this one by far reminded me the most of the original Command and Conquer, much more than Tiberian Sun, since that game was a little too post-apocalyptic for me. I enjoy the fast paced gameplay, the story, and the great vehicles, especially in the expansion pack, Kane's Wrath, and most of all the more classic style Mammoth tank, and not a Walker based on the name "mammoth". Unfortunately though this games soundtrack is extremely lackluster, so I end up playing old command and conquer music in the background to make up for it. After that I think my favorite would be Red alert, then the second Red Alert.

Glad to see that my top 3 (Generals, 3, and RA2) are also the top three on here. RA2 has humour and nostalgia, Generals has realism and novel ideas, but C&C3 remains my favourite RTS because they took the proven formula that they have been building since the original Command and Conquer, and here they perfected it. Beautiful game, interesting factions that all play very very differently, and lots and lots of choices.

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

This game to me is the pinnacle of the Cand C series. It still looks good graphics wise even today, the story was good especially with its expansion. The units are cool but also balanced. The difficulty is there and the AI offers up a decent fight without going overboard. People like to hate on it because it came after the demise of Westwood. But if you play the first game then go to something like red alert it feels like a slap in the face to the franchise and more of a joke. (which in part is what they were going for at the time and that's fine) But to me this game feels like the direct sequel to the first game, and unfortinately to this day, the last game in the series. As the 4th game really was a slap in the face to fans and doesn't count. lol

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

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.

This was the best expansion for the greatest every C & C (RA2). This just added that little bit extra to it and I absolutely loved it from day of release and I still play it today!

This is also a great expansion pack, much like Zero Hour it provides all the improvements of graphics, maps, singleplayer, multiplayer, units and much more!

6 Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun Product Image

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.

Great and best start of westwood company..., I can just say, It's perfect.

After this you can play Command & Conquer 3-Tiberium Wars, They are nice and cool.

7 Command & Conquer: Red Alert Command & Conquer: Red Alert Product Image

Possibly the game I've spent the most amount of time on EVER. Almost perfection for me. Only negatives are how the AI will not build certain units/buildings (Superweapons, Naval Units etc). And the addition of aircraft carriers would have been amazing but hey ho...

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.

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.

8 Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Product Image

What is wrong? How come this masterpiece is only 6, Uprising is 11 and epic Kane's Wrath is 10? Just too many damn nostalgia and Westwood fanboys! Come on! RA3 is epic! It has cool graphics, you can build your base at sea as well as on land, 3 single player campaigns, decent story and new system that requires MICROMANAGEMENT! Any fool can amass a horde of tough units and press left mouse button to attack, but in RA3 a horde of super-units is NOT a guaranteed victory, you have to manage them WELL if you want to win. YES, I actually LOVE hot girls in RA3!

This was the beginning of the end of command and conquer! The graphics from this game compared to C&C red alert 2 and yuri's revenge... it wrecked the franchise! All of the imagery and screen control for 3D effect was terrible. your new options was what killed the game and ended such a great brilliant start!

Pure pure nostalgia and amazing graphics and gameplay. Compelling story and also my first entry into the command and conquer series. My second being tiberium twilight 4( which I don't think it was that bad please don't hate me).

Lovely game.
- Good graphics
- Nice campaign stories
- Interesting units and characters
- Enjoyable game play

Probably the best of the previous Red Alert games.

9 Command & Conquer: Renegade Command & Conquer: Renegade Product Image

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!

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.

10 Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath Product Image

I liked the tiberium Series and Red Alert series. The best Tibirium game is definitely CNC3 with Kanes Wrath DLC. Tiberium Sun and Firestrorm DLC was good back in the day. Red Alert 2 was one of the best Command and Conquers ever made but Red Alert 3 the graphics, physics and factions and story, harvesting etc etc where all a joke. CnC3 or Kanes Wrath for the Win!

I like kanes wrath because I have more factions to choose from and more units than tiberium wars. Plus there are more player created maps then any other c+c games I have played.

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

For the Brotherhood of Nod Kane lives!

The Contenders
11 Command & Conquer: Tiberium Dawn

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

12 Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun - Firestorm Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun - Firestorm Product Image

Fixes the balancing issues of the base game and provides a much more creative and interesting campaign. There is even a level where you have to use non lethal force to avoid killing anyone, not something you see often in an rts.

13 Command & 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.

14 Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight Product Image

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...

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

15 Command & Conquer: The Covert Operations

This game is pretty old and isn't Great but gameplay wise is decent.

16 Command & Conquer: Rivals

I began playing C&C with Generals and proceeded with Kane's Wrath which were both very good games! now they released this mobile title and I can only say, that you are not gonna be disappointed! Even people who "pay 2 Win" can be beaten if you try hard enough and it offers you many different ways to play! I just wanna get Rivals over Renegade which is a horrible game!
