I enjoyed all the C&C games from C&C to C&C3 (although RA3 was a bit underwhelming). I wouldn't have said C&C was amazing, but it was a solid game, and did exactly what I expected it to. To me it just defies belief that they'd take one of (if not the biggest) strategy franchies, and completely ruin it's final instalment like this. I mean they knew what worked, they knew what sold well, all they had to do was do a few tweaks to the existing formula, maybe upgrade the graphics slightly, put in a story (with the cut scenes) and they'd have a decent but not great game.
Instead they decide to make a completely different game, and slap the C&C4 name(+story) on it. Even more depressing is that it's the final one in the series so there's no chance of it being a Renegade type game .
I just don't get why so many developers are taking a good formula that they know works, and completely changing it.
Dawn of war (although at least Dawn of War 2 was still a decent game), Supreme commander, C&C4...
