Command & Conquer: Red Alert

Red Alert is a prequel of the first Command & Conquer game. The game focuses on the war between Allies and Soviets. Red Alert is basically identical to the original Command & Conquer, except the factions have changed from the far future battlegrounds to the alternative timeline where Allies and Soviets fight for control of European mainland. The game takes place in the unspecified period in the 1950s of a parallel universe, which was inadvertently created by Albert Einstein as a result of preventing the horrors of World War II.

  7/8/2015 7:47:00 AM - Why? Gets stuck loading at about 75%! Noooooo this was my favorite way to pretend to work!! :(
  1/13/2015 4:27:00 AM - sucks that it will not load.
  11/7/2014 3:57:00 PM - Because there were constant problems with the rip version, we have changed it to full CD version. You will spend much more time with downloads but this version contains all levels and original cinematics. You can also easy play it in win95 mode. The new version also contains saved games for all levels.

  2/1/2014 9:26:00 AM - Aydan I can't seem to play it. The installer freezes and if you use rungame.exe it runs until you begin the first mission then it fails to load the terrain and any movement blurs across the screen!!
  1/30/2014 11:42:00 PM - I can only play to certain levels on both the allied and soviet sides. For both when you have to play inside a building (for the soviets the nuclear meltdown) the game just goes black and will not start up the next level.
What is abandonware ?
