The first two Command and Conquer games established much of what we’ve come to know as the real-time strategy game genre, and the Command and Conquer Remastered Collection set the bar for how to repackage classic games. for a modern audience. The collection is currently 85% off on Steam, cutting its price to an all-time low of $2.99 / £2.69.
What do you get with this package? It’s Command and Conquer plus Command and Conquer: Red Alert, all three expansions, a map editor and more, all remastered in 4K resolution. The original members of the Westwood Studios development team worked on this update, which also includes a rebuilt multiplayer mode and a modernized interface.
Naturally, you also get all the gloriously old FMV cutscenes, which alone are well worth the price of admission. Another great thing in the remaster: you can switch between new graphics and old graphics with just the press of a button in single player mode.
Editor Rich gave the package a 9/10 in our Command and Conquer Remastered Collection review, concluding that “for those nostalgic, or for those who missed it the first time around and can’t wait to try out the game that was to RTS what Doom was to FS, there’s no easier buy to recommend this year”, and that was at its full price of $20, which he called “amazing value”.
The sale turns now until January 23.
