Command And Conquer: Tiberium Alliances is a free-to-play, browser based Massive Multiplayer Online Real Time Strategy (MMORTS) game from EA Phenomic and EA Games. It is based on the Command and Conquer Saga, where two factions, Global Defense Initiative and Brotherhood of Nod fight each other for control over the valuable resources of Tiberium.
As it is customary in RTS games, players start from a humble little base and have to upgrade it and slowly conquer neighboring opponents, computer or man controlled. To do so, they must gather resources and use them wisely to build or the necessary infrastructure. Once they have established a strong base, they can raise an army and send it to fight. The combat system is easy to master; first you study your opponents defenses and then you choose which units to send and in what order. Since your attack commences in waves and over a limited amount of time, you have to think really hard on your attack plan. And as in every game of the genre, allying with others and joining guilds is a good way to get one step closer to reaching your goals.
The game features an ominous 2D sci-fi world and manages to depict accurately the war-ridden land. Battle effects are simple but effective and together with the beautiful soundtrack manage to keep your blood pumping.
Command And Conquer: Tiberium Alliances is an interesting strategy game; it doesn’t discover the wheel but it implements the basic elements of RTS games correctly. The result is a game that will entertain you for a long time.
