Command and Conquer is widely considered one of the most important RTS series around. Initially developed by Westwood and later on EA Redwood Shores, the franchise includes some of the best games in the genre, as well as a few of the worst *cough* Command and Conquer 4 *cough*. It has helped pave the way for other incredibly successful franchises like Company of Heroes, which got a new release recently.

Overall, though, it’s an incredibly influential series that has sadly been put in the backburner by EA. Recently, they did put out a surprisingly good remaster of the very first game, which was developed in partnership with Lemon Sky Studios, out of Kuala Lumpur, Malasia, who pulled off a literal miracle in remastering the cheesy FMV sequences the series is known for that first started out in the original Command and Conquer.

This re-release of older RTS games comes in tandem with some other EA classics, such as the supremely overlooked open-world game by Pandemic, The Saboteur, Dungeon Keeper, Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, Populous 2, and Sim City 3000.

So if you’re feeling like waging virtual war and enjoying some great games this weekend, be sure to stop by their page. There’s bound to be a game or three that you’ll enjoy. And no, this is not sponsored content, I’m just a huge CnC fan!
