Details: Sticking firm to the old "if it ain't broke…" philosophy, Westwood Studios conjures up memories of the original Command & Conquer games with Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 Gold Collection, which includes the original game and the mission disk, Yuri's Revenge. The game is set just a few years after the events of the original C&C: Red Alert and opens with a surprise Soviet invasion of the US mainland.
Playing as the startled Americans, you must cobble together a resistance and beat the invaders back into the sea. Playing as the Soviets, you must quickly establish control of your new domain. You still lead a small group of infantry and armoured units in most missions and you still have to assemble a base of operations in order to accomplish just about anything. This time around, however, you'll have a slew of new units to build and command in the field--most of which are pretty slick. The American Prism Tank, for example, can take out numerous enemy units with a single, branching attack. On the Soviet side, Tesla Troopers and Psychics help make ground troops a formidable asset.
Yuri's Revenge Mission Disk: at the end of Red Alert 2 the Soviet threat was vanquished and Yuri, the Reds' psychic warrior fled. Now he's back in his own mission pack and as it says on the tin, he's out for revenge. To this end he begins building a network of psychic dominators with the plan of turning the good ol' US of A into a race of mindless automatons, eager to do his bidding.
The Allies manage to hold Yuri off in San Francisco just long enough for Einstein to propel you back through time to try and change the course of history. Both sides will battle against Yuri and try and avert his psychic domination of the world, but if you play the Soviet campaign, your mission will not only be to stop Yuri, but also restore Mother Russia to its former glory.
The add-on pack offers 14 new single-player missions, (seven for each side) and although you
