Years ago (and I mean YEARS ago) I used to really enjoy playing Red Alert (Command & Conquer) against mates from the home PC.
You'd invite 2 mates into a map (of which you could choose from a number of predetermined or custom maps) and then you'd spend hours building an army, etc.
But the best thing was being able to play against your mates - not just AI.
Is there anything out there now which is like this? Looking for something relatively cheap and cheerful as our computers aren't high performance gaming machines…and we're all tightarses.
Is there anything on Steam or Origin or buy outright (does anyone do that anymore?!?)?
Thanks for any recommendations.
Bunch of legends! Thanks for all the advice. I'll be hitting up cncnet tonight, and will certainly be looking to a few of the other recommendations as the days/weeks/months roll on.
I'll put my username up here for anyone who wants to battle on!
