COMMAND AND CONQUER: TIBERIAN SUNReviewed By: Matt Middleton
VOLUNTEER GUEST REVIEWER
On the back of the box there was the phrase “mild language” as a reason for the Teen rating. I find the language in this game to be more than mild. In the video introductions to over thirty missions the characters usually swear. That is more than enough reason not to buy it.
Being a warring type of game, there is violence. Realistic explosions and guerilla warfare are the basis of the entire game. When an infantry unit is killed you'll see realistic blood and the unit screams. In one instance, over thirty of my infantry units were ran over by a vehicle with no weapons. To sum up, the game is violent.Within the Nod forces, deceit, assassinations, and murder are the way to get more power. There are no sexual undercurrents or themes in the game.
"C&C: Tiberian Sun" is a good strategy game, but the objectionable content is enough to make you look for a better game.
Year of Release—2000
Negative—I can't say that I would recommend this game in any way. Aside from the moral objections in the main review (which I agree with) the gameplay is rubbish! I enjoyed both Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert and awaited this game eargerly. Within a couple of hours of playing it, I realised that Tiberian Sun was not up to the standard set by its predecessors. The units aren't fun, the AI is hopeless and the storyline is pure cheese. In short, save your time and money for something else. My Ratings: [2/2]
