    I've always been a fan of Command & Conquer games, in fact, Warcraft/Starcraft and Command & Conquer are my favorite RTS games ever.

    EA recently released the C&C3 demo and finally got around to download it and play it and man, it really is a fun demo, made me want the full game even more.

    Is anyone as excited for this game as I am?

    Heh sorry, just had to post that. I recommend anyone with a PC or Intel Mac to go ahead and download the demo.

    On my PC (3.2GHZ P4, 2GB RAM, 6800XT, WinXP) it played fine at 1280x1024 and medium settings (it defaulted at more but I really like steady framerates in strategy games).

    On my CD MBP (2.16GHz, 2GB RAM, 256MB X1600, WinXP) it also played fine at 1024x768 and medium though I'm sure the res can be pushed as high as 1440x900 with no problem (I was really anxious to play so I didn't mess with the settings panel).

    I've already pre-ordered mine.

    After playing through the demo and seeing the prologue, I'm very interested. Seems like GDI is in for some trouble and it's great to see Kane back from the dead (again).

    It's probably a Kane clone, considering how firestorm ended.

    The demo is great. I play medium/high on 1440x900 shadows off, I can push it a bit higher when I set my videocard clocks higher (C2D MBP 2.33).

    I finally beat some brutal computers. By the way for everyones information, you can play as Nod by holding down "n" while you select them.

    I think it's in the same situation of Call Of Duty 1...Just another thing they'll never get round to doing...

    i also have a black mb, 160 gb hard drive and 2 gb ram, bought the f*** game and it crashes as soon as the battle start, something weird about it is that before it crashes, there seems to be no lagging whatsoever... can the game be play in a black mb? is it that im missing something in the settings or drivers?

    thanks.

    Awesome game. I love C&C Generals, but this one is awesome. I understand why gamespot gave 9/10 for this game ... I love it ... I think I'm gonna fail the semester .. gulp.

    Well so far so good, I've got C&C 3 Kane edition v1.3 running on my wee MacBook (2.0Ghz core2duo with 1GB of RAM) :)


    Update on my last statement, it worked fine for the easy stuff but when it got a bit more taxing the built-in graphics memory (as I won't call it a card) couldn't cope and the game just quits.

    So I'm back playing C&C: The First Decade again. :(

    I believe this thread was originally for the Windows version.

    The final post from back then was long before it was announced at WWDC for Mac.

    When is this out for Mac? I checked the US Apple website (I'm from the UK) and the 'BUY NOW' button goes to the homepage of the store and that's it. It's not listed, the UK store had no clue about it at all when I asked. Is it out or not for Mac?
