Best Command and Conquer Games

What are the best C&C games? Tiberium versus Red Alert?
The Top Ten
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.

This game is the very first game I have ever played I seen my uncle played this game and I am interested so I try the game and after the first mission of the allied I FELL INLOVE WITH IT IMMEDIATELY without the doubt this is the best CnC game or in my opinion best rts ever made yea I also like warcraft and starcraft but THIS GAME I WILL NEVER REPLACED IT I remember the awesome units like the mirage tank a high tech tank that can camouflage into a tree waiting for ambush, the terror drone ahh I remembered when I saw a battalion of tanks coming I also built a battalion of terror drones to tear them apart, the apocalypse tank now this beast is the defination of firepower it can 1v1 almost anything on the land and the infamous kirov airship well if you see a fleet of kitov well you already that you lose till today I was 4 backthen now I'm 16 years old still playing it then I stopped playing red alert 2 for a while until I discovered an awesome mod for RA2 yuri's revenge the MENTAL OMEGA ...more

RA2 is the masterpiece :) the last RTS game which was really fun to play. Graphics was under discussion back then because outdated for the time. Nevertheless the gameplay has'nt been as good at this. For me this was the top and it went all downhill from there

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

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.

I played this game I about 6 years old. I love this whole my life and I wish this game will available the Xbox Series X and Xbox one x because this belongs Microsoft same as PC❤️ Plus+ Red Alert 2.

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.

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.

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.

In my opinion, this game is one of the best games westwood ever released. Even though its development time was unfortunatly cut in half, it is still a great game.

Some of the mods people developed for it are good as well.

Play Generals, then this. It is awesome with an amazing generals challenge with a memorable street fighter "versus" intro. Very funny but absolutely brilliant game.

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.

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

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 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... ).

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

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.

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!

I like this one the most, did you know there is a new version? Renegade X! :D

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.

Best game I've ever played in C&C series, graphics are acceptable and gameplay is better than Command and Conquer 3!

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!

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

All time favourite but I'm yet to play the red alert series

For the Brotherhood of Nod Kane lives!

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

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!

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

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).

It is my favourite game but in 2009 their is red alert 3 uprising and the most strangest c&c game is called red alert 3 launched? I only got 3 or 4 information about the game but this is noting about the game their is 3 new army s 1 it is the futerteck we all know it 2 it is an army called uc 1 information about it and the last called children of sun unknown

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!

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

Probably the best of the previous Red Alert games.

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.

This is one of the best one so it should be higher

The Contenders
Command & Conquer: Red Alert Command & Conquer: Red Alert Product Image

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.

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...

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.

Command 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.

I like the game I think its pretty decent

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...

Worst Game ever

The story! The story! After the great additions to the lore they had in C&C3, this one is the worst kind of "giving the answer" story.One that full with plot holes that are so bad that every time they try to give us an answer, the whole lore is screaming with pain. There is no more lore for C&C. My hope is that EA one day will continue with a real C&C game and choose that this one will not be part of the cannon.

The ending is really bad, and the big reveal make no sense. Spoiler:
Kane the whole time fought the GDI so they can't stop tiberium from spreading, attracting the Scrin, so they will build a tower. So far so good,but this part is from C&C3. How this one continue the story line?
The reason that Kane wanted the Scrin to build the tower is for him to enter a metrix ripoff and activate the tower. And what dose the tower do? Clear all earth from tiberium Deus-ex-machina style.
So kane fought the GDI so they can't stop the spread of tiberium so the scrin will ...more

Command & Conquer: Tiberium Dawn

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

Command & Conquer: The Covert Operations

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

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!

Renegade X

A modern re-imagining of C&C Renegade. Some of the best team based multiplayer I have seen.

Command & Conquer: Red Alert: Counterstrike
Command & Conquer: Red Alert: The Aftermath

Missile subs made this so much better than RA
