Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2


For this month's "Maps of the Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to LDK's Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 maps.



In the second installment of the Command & Conquer: Red Alert series, the United States are invaded by the Soviets, who are armed with mind control technology.  Playing as the Allied Commander, you will work with General Carville and Special Agent Tanya to defeat Yuri's Soviet Psychic Corps.  Playing as the Soviet Commander, you must "defend the motherland", take over the world, and eventually have to deal with the traitorous Yuri as well.  The expansion, Yuri's Revenge, sees the Allies and Soviets trying to stop the Psychic Dominator devices which would allow Yuri to take over the minds of everyone on the planet.



As with other real-time strategy games, like Blizzard's WarCraft and StarCraft games, each faction has their own set of missions, and therefore a unique set of maps to have to play through.  As you gather resources and manage your units, you should also have knowledge of the terrain to achieve victory.  LDK, apparently a RTS fan, gives us a good atlas of the world as seen through the eyes of both the Allies and the Soviets, as well as in the expansion.



So to recognize the effort put into mapping yet another PC RTS classic (as well as its expansion), LDK's Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 maps will be known as VGMaps.com's Maps of the Month for November 2008.

Good stuff. Speaking of RTS games, it would be insanely easy to map the Age of Empires/Mythology games. There's actually a button that will dump the entire map to a bmp. I just never did it because it seemed like cheating ;-)

Oh! Is there a long queue of Strategy and Simulation games waiting to become map of the month? Besides The C&C and Blizzard Software strategy games, what else is missing? The Heroes of Might and Magic Series and the Settlers Series for sure. Strategy games have got to be the games of the year. Around here anyway.
