Rating: Good Like the original Command & Conquer for the PlayStation, the PlayStation version of Red Alert is a good port of an incredible PC game. Everything about the PlayStation version of what I feel is one of the greatest computer games of all time is just right, except for two things. One, the game doesn't give you a wide enough view of the action. Much like the DOS version of the PC game, the "camera" is zoomed in too far, giving you a limited view of the action. The second thing is that playing the game with a console controller just doesn't feel the same as playing it with a computer mouse and keyboard. For me, an owner and avid player of the PC game, playing the PlayStation version just made me want to play the PC version more. Granted, Westwood did the best job possible given the different format (including a sweet two-player option through the use of the Link Cable), but I still prefer the PC version. However, those who don't have a computer to play Red Alert on should rejoice that now they can play it without a computer, and Red Alert is a great game no matter what system it's on.
