It’s been a hot minute since I’ve played as Command & Conquer game. I used to be obsessed with Red Alert and Red Alert 2 especially. I remember in college when we had the LAN connection and we’d play with people in my dorm suite. Oh those were the days. Anywho, since that time I haven’t gotten back into that RTS type of game and I decided with this new mobile version, it was time to get back in. 

EA has gotten a lot of flack for their microtransitions and general bastardizing of franchises but so far, I have to say, I’m having a blast. The game runs very smooth on my 6th generation iPad with the animations working as they’re supposed to. The gameplay is fast and furious with matches lasting only a couple of minutes. While I miss the good ol days where I could build a base for hours and slowly destroy my enemies however I wanted, whenever I wanted; I get why they went this route with it being a mobile game. They want people to idly play while they are supposed to be doing work or paying attention to their spouses, whatever. 

For now, EA has been actively listening to the community for feedback on how to improve things and it SEEMS like they are making amends for their past behavior. Time will tell as to what the future will hold, but for the moment, Command & Conquer: Rivals is an entertaining good time.
