Game Description

Initially released in 2000 by Westwood Pacific and published and distributed by Electronic Arts, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 is a real-time strategy game standing as a sequel to Command & Conquer: Red Alert. It runs on Microsoft Windows both on single and multiplayer mode. The game can also be played with multiplayer using CnCNet. In single-player, Red Alert 2 features the same main two campaigns which make their appearance in the first game: the Soviets and the Allies. Set in 1972, the game’s storyline starts in the Third World War with the Soviet Invasion in the United States. From here, both campaigns lead to different storylines which both consist of 12 missions to be played to victory. Soviet Psychic Corps’s leader Yuri and US President Michael Dugan are the main characters of the storyline. Aside from the two campaigns mentioned, it also includes a Boot Camp which stands as a training and introduction to the whole game. If selected, Boot Camp eventually leads to the Allied Campaign. All these three run in an alternate ending structure. Multiplayer mode on the other hand can be played both through LAN and online. The gameplay is based on resource collection to be used for constructing buildings and units. Collection of resources can be done through various means: ores, gems and oil. Different campaigns feature different ways of supply collection. Compared to its predecessor, the game allows playing as a specific country which entails unique units and strategies.

  1. How do you uninstall the old free version? It does not show up in the Control Center on Win 10, and I cannot find a uninstall.
