Gamers Depot is even langs Westwood gefietst om te kijken hoe het met Command and Conquer 2: Tiberian Sun staat. De game zal één dezer dagen Gold gaan, waarna hij in 3 à 4 weekjes in de schappen zal staan. Hier heb je een stukkie, de review vind je hier!
The gameplay of
TiberiumTiberian Sun is some of the most fun I've had since the early days. The design team has done an excellent job of creating a fast-paced game, while keeping things extremely balanced. You won't have to worry about tank rushes or anything else lame like that.
I didn't get to try every single map, but the ones I did play seemed well thought out. Every player had ample Tiberium to harvest, which was a complaint I used to have about there never being enough stuff to mine. Another nice touch is the ability to que up to 5 units or vehicles to be constructed.
The single player in TS is even more indulging than any of the C&C games before it. From Cut-Scenes that look like their right out of Industrial Light and Magic, and a music score to die for TS delivers the goods. One can't help but notice eight away that Westwood hired the talent of James Earl Jones to take the leading role of Solomon, the fearless who spites Kane and the Brotherhood of Nod. James plays the role very convincingly. Joseph Kucan returns as the Nod hero, Kane. I think he's definitely grown as an actor this time around! The cut scenes do an excellent job of keeping you in all the action between missions.
The Multiplayer action in TS doesn't disappoint either, it allows for up to eight of you and your pals to play on a LAN over TCP/IP or IPX. Westwood Chat will again handle all of the internet play, I didn't get to see Westwood Chat in action, but I sure hope it's a LOT better than what it used to be. (It'd be better if they went w/ an online gaming service like won.net) I got the chance to play a few of the new map textiles too, like the Snow and Ice, which looks really cool, and is a welcomed addition to the rather plain looking desert maps.
