Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 allows two friends to play against preset computer opponents throughout the course of a short campaign. There are five campaigns, some harder than others with more being added with the offiical add-on Yuri's Revenge. The object is to work with your partner to destroy the enemy base. In addition you can team up with up to three other players to battle A.I. opponents in some traditional RTS "comp stomp".
Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 gives you the choice of playing as one of two completely distinct forces: the honourable Allies or the aggressive and militaristic Soviets.
In Single-Player games, if you elect to play as the Allies, you will battle against Soviet forces, and forces and, if you choose to play as the Soviets, you will fight against the Allies. In Multiplayer games, both Allied and Soviet forces and factions can battle against each other.
The two sides are very different, and share only a few common units and structures. Each side has a unique array of strengths and weaknesses that can be exploited. The units and structures of the two armies reflect the basic philosophy behind the armies. While the Allies depend upon superior technology and finesse, the Soviet forces rely on brute strength to achieve their objectives.
