Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 Demo (360)

As much as I liked the previous C&C games on the PC, and the best RTS game ever made ever Dune II, I can’t get on with them on consoles. The controls have never fitted a controller, and I found the C&C 3 demo last year too fiddly and complicated.

Since this is based on the same engine, I expected the same problems. And, yes, I struggled my way through the training and the demo Russian mission. I enjoyed it, and I’m liking the huge number of people who used to be famous that litter the cut scenes, but I do wonder if I’d eventually manage to control the game or would I become too frustrated and give up?

I haven’t really played a decent RTS game in years, as I’ve not played PC games in years, but maybe I should stick with something like this?
