North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtAt the end of Red Alert 2 the Soviet threat was vanquished and Yuri, the Reds' psychic warrior fled. Now he's back in his own mission pack and as it says on the tin, he's out for revenge. To this end he begins building a network of Psychic dominators with the plan of turning the good ol' US of A into a race of mindless automatons, eager to do his bidding. The allies manage to hold Yuri off in San Francisco just long enough for Einstein to propel you back through time to try and change the course of history. Both sides will battle against Yuri and try and avert his psychic domination of the world, but if you play the Soviet campaign, your mission will not only be to stop Yuri, but also restore Mother Russia to its former glory. The add-on pack offers 14 new single-player missions, (seven for each side) although you won't be able to control Yuri's forces in the single-player game, you can in multiplayer and skirmish games. As well as the new missions you get new units on both sides. The allies have gained the Guardian GI, an infantry unit capable of attacking armoured vehicles (rather than just being run over by them) it can also take out air targets with its mid-ranged rocket launcher. In defence against Yuri's Psychic Dominator, the allies also have robot hover-tanks that don't require "human" pilots. As well as these there is an upgrade to the phenomenal, Mammoth tank--the Battle Fortress that also doubles as a troop carrier. The soviets on the other hand begin the game at a disadvantage seeing as when Yuri scarpered he took some of their technology with him, but they do have the Industrial Building, which substantially increases unit production efficiency and a Spy Plane, Boris, (basically Tanya but with more facial hair), the Siege Chopper and the Battle Bunker which holds up to five conscripts. This is a great add-on for an entertaining game and shows that the Command and Conquer franchise is still very much alive and kicking. --Kensington Walsh
