Red Alert 1 is still an incredible and addictive game, I first played this in 1997 and I still play the odd skirmish, personally I think its still one of the best C&C games!

Red Alert original is incomparably better then RA2, the multi-player is miles better. I'm normally not one to yammer on about nostalgia this and that but Red Alert is one of the best games ever made and its just as fun in link up/lan nowadays as it was 10 years ago. Truly timeless. Still have a pristine copy for the PSX.
