The lights are on
Bear-firing cannons. Weaponized dolphins. George Takei in a silly Samurai outfit. The Command & Conquer franchise is certainly a strategy title unlike any other. Want to talk to a group of individuals who appreciate the series as much as you do? Come on in
Who would you rather have making C&C games
Personally I'd go with westwood, the games aren't as fast paced but I believed they are better developed.
westwood hands down
Normally I am not a big fan of big company acquisitions. When Westwood was C&C's caretaker, I envision they treated it with more care, while EA might tend to evolve the series with only the intent of making more money. Creativity may suffer. On the other hand, EA has the financial means to market the series more aggressively, which may be the reason the C&C universe is still alive. Red Alert 2 is my favorite installment - a Westwood title. In addition, Westwood's games had more of an impact on me than EA's did. My vote is for Westwood.
