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

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 its release, and 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, a better story, and everything to the limit. I was wondering if they would ever do an anniversary remake of this game in the future. Maybe for RA1.

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

2 Command & Conquer: Generals

I can't choose between RA2 and Generals ZH. But since Generals made a massive improvement in graphics, gameplay, and mechanics, and the greatest thing is it was released only three years after RA2. Also, the mods for Generals (like Shockwave and ROTR) are the best. 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 favorite in the series.

3 Command & Conquer Generals: Zero Hour

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 letdown. This game can run on Windows 10, but EA hasn't made that easy 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 is abandoning the franchise! Even if the next C&C just upgraded the graphics and added a new campaign, I would definitely buy it!

4 Command & Conquer 3:Tiberium Wars

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. 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. Most of all, I love the more classic style Mammoth tank, not a Walker based on the name "mammoth." Unfortunately, this game's 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.

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

This is the game where they should have kept all the formatting and built off of it. If they could have made this game new like Starcraft 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, reads this post, and uses what I said, they could easily beat any new PS4 or Xbox One garbage out there! People like this style and will always have a love for games like this exact one.

6 Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun

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

Just great. Probably one of the best games created in the late '90s/early '00s.

Overall amazing. The only annoying thing is the destructible terrain.

This game is great. For its time and what they had to work with, they made a pretty amazing game that kept me playing every day.

7 Command & Conquer: Red Alert

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 or 5, and the graphics and gameplay were exceptional for its time. It was also my first experience with Command & Conquer and my first time playing a computer game (on the PS1, Retaliation [still Red Alert, laugh out loud]), and I was so happy that I could play it.

Being really easy to learn but hard to master is what makes a franchise truly 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 will be able to play the best RTS game that will ever be made.

8 Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3

What is wrong? How come this masterpiece is only 6, Uprising is 11, and the 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, three single-player campaigns, a decent story, and a new system that requires MICROMANAGEMENT!

Any fool can amass a horde of tough units and press the 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 the hot girls in RA3!

9 Command & Conquer: Renegade

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

This is the last standalone game on the list. The other two will be expansion packs. I don't think this game fits with the title at all. It's an FPS/third-person game. I don't know how they managed to call it a C&C game.

10 Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath

I liked the Tiberium series and Red Alert series. The best Tiberium game is definitely C&C3 with Kane's Wrath DLC. Tiberium Sun and Firestorm DLC were good back in the day. Red Alert 2 was one of the best Command and Conquers ever made, but Red Alert 3 was a joke with its graphics, physics, factions, and story, harvesting, etc. C&C3 or Kane's Wrath for the win!

I like Kane's Wrath because I have more factions to choose from and more units than Tiberium Wars. Plus, there are more player-created maps than in any other C&C game I have played.

The Contenders
11 Command & Conquer: Tiberium Dawn

This is a good game, but I couldn't find my favorite version, 1.07 Tiberium Dawn.

12 Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun - Firestorm

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 best C&C game. But I just got Red Alert 3: Uprising, and I think it is even better because it has new units that are really epic. My favorite units are the Giga Fortress, Harbinger Gunship, the Grinder, and the Reaper.

14 Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight

This game was fun, but the lack of base building made it a forgettable and unaddictive experience. Its single-player was enjoyable, but its 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 a fan of the crawler.

15 Command & Conquer: The Covert Operations

This game is pretty old and isn't great, but gameplay-wise, it 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 going to be disappointed! Even people who "pay to win" can be beaten if you try hard enough, and it offers you many different ways to play! I just want to get Rivals over Renegade, which is a horrible game!
