One more RTS console port to review! This one's based off the famous PC series waging a campy sci-fi style battle between three factions: Allies, Soviets, and Empire of the Rising Sun. Each group brings something special to the table in different units and powers. My favorites are the Allies (the good guys) and the Empire (with the coolest toys). The real highlight of this game is that it includes A-list actors from Jonathan Pryce (of Brazil and Pirates of the Caribbean fame), J.K. Simmons (J.Jonah Jameson from Spider-man), Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show, and one of the standouts), and the show stealer George Takei (Hikaru Sulu) in surrealistic cutscenes. The campy, cartoonish tone matches that of a G.I. Joe cartoon though sometimes goes a little over the edge, whereas my favorite in the series C&C 2 Yuri's revenge had camp and restraint and coolness. Overall this one is worth your time.
There's also an expansion called Uprising and among the new stars in this one are: Malcolm McDowell, famous for playing the derby topped teddy boy hooligan from A Clockwerk Orange and Ric Flair (Woo!) as a Commander. In fact here he is:
