Command & Conquer 4 for iphone?

Do you guys think that they will make the up and coming C&C 4 for the iphone as well? If they do, I sure hope it's better than Red Alert for the iphone...

i want either generals or zero hour. idk whats wrong with EA. zero hour/generals was the best C&C ever made. it had realistic units, factions, and environments. idk, is EA high? whats with this red alert and tiberium wars BS? all the units are fat and fake. everything is too futuristic. generals was rather modern and realistic, but Act of War is pretty good too in that sense.

Generals was and still is the best C&C ever made imo. A port of it that works better than Red Alert would be awesome.

they have three seperate storylines, Red Alert is alternate universe Cold War(I think), the original C&C had a futuristic Sci-Fi theme, then of course Generals the realistic one(other than the emperor tank).

I really hope they do.

But I'm not sure they will because Red Alert wasn't a very big hit, and I'm guessing lost them money.

It was a solid game, but they screwed up by not including the Japanese faction in that game. The PC game had three factions you could choose from... Allies vs. Soviets vs. Japan. The Japanese faction was by far the coolest. All their units transform from ground units to air units, mechs, giant robots, psychic school girls. They could build anywhere on the map.

The Allies were by far the most boring and useless faction in Red Alert, so it makes little sense to me why they opted to make it Allies vs. Soviets instead of Japan vs. Soviets.

They also screwed up by not including FMVs to the game (atleast as an optional download). The videos are a huge part of Red Alert's charm, without them, the game is just like every other generic RTS out there.

p.s: IMO, Generals was boring. Who cares about using real units like tanks, jeeps and helicopters that we see every day, everywhere and in every game. It's so much cooler to use futuristic vehicles like tesla tanks, flame tanks, invisible tanks, Obelisks of light, mechs, tengus, psychics, skywings and transforming units.

+1 The zaniness and humor of Red Alert was what drew me in. The heads of Mt. Rushmore shoot laser beams, for crying out loud, how can you not love that?

Actually EA has a website for C&C and they announced in their video series that they were adding an entire Japanese campaign as an update along with online multiplayer with new maps to the ipod touch Red Alert.

Red Alert for iPhone was the worst game I paid for over $5 (and bought it at launch at $10). Controls are absolutely horrendous, frustrating at best. There is virtually no content. The AI is useless. Choppy, slow framerate, jagged graphics when zoomed out (who the hell plays all the way zoomed in?). Both Allies and Soviet are virtually the same with very minor differences...

If they are going to do justice with C&C they really need to do a much better job, starting with the controls. Accidental drag/clicks happen all the time is unacceptable. Building placement is also a chore with the rediculous small maps.

They already have local multiplayer and the Empire faction (in app purchase). Never heard anything about Online Multiplayer.
