Command & Conquer Renegade Westwood / Electronic Arts 2002

This is developer Westwood's first 3d-Shooter, based on the successful Command & Conquer real time strategy series. Westwood's own engine was made for this (a reason, why the development time on it stretched so long). The engine is not bad at all, however, it shows also some weaknesses in features. Westwood still made a first-class game though. In the missions there is a lot to shoot always. More than in other shooters one must destroy buildings and vehicles as well as opponents who are on foot. One slips into the role of Nick "Havoc" Parker, who will be familiar to C&C players. A Rambo-type who already cleared up in the real time strategy-games as a one-man army. One therefore fights on the side of the GDI and must fight against the NODs (in general the bad persons). The NODs succeeded in arresting some of the best scientists of the GDI. The task in the game is therefore: to release them and to destroy the craft of the NOD. One gets practically all buildings and vehicles from the C&C universe to see (and can enter them or use). Especially in network play, possibilities come up for all kinds of tactical considerations. Renegade has been quite a lot of fun for me. Cool cutscenes and being able to be in a fully 3D C&C universe is fascinating. There is a little to criticize in Renegade, except maybe not one feature is astounding but the overall effect of everything is great. The multiplayer game is likewise interesting, however, it needs as minimum 5 players on every side to be fun. Unfortunately, Westwood did not offer necessary support for the game as the developer was shut down in Feb/2003. There are barely any patches, and therefore Renegade sank into the sea of many multiplayer games rather quickly. It does have a devoted fan following even at the end of the decade though.
