Product Description

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, Yuri's Revenge sets a new standard for expansion packs in both what it adds to the game and how it changes the way you play it. The world is once again on the brink of apocalypse. Yuri, the brilliant and powerful psychic warrior, has rebelled against his former Soviet masters and launched his own scheme to control the world. He's armed with cruel technologies, exotic weapons, and mind-controlling devices that have enslaved entire cities.

In single play, gamers can choose to command the Allies and crush this new threat to freedom, or choose to lead the Soviets and punish this would-be usurper of the Soviet global vision. In multiplayer mode, you'll command Yuri's devastating army using devious weapons based on forbidden technologies: psychic thought, genetics, and cloning. See your brutes flip over tanks with their bare hands, unleash your dominator and control scores of enemy troops, or use a virus to infect opposing forces foolish enough to resist you. With 10 new cooperative missions, gamers have more interesting options than just fighting head-to-head. An improved multiplayer and tournament interface will make it easier than ever to find opponents and allies.

Both the Allied and Soviet armies get new, powerful weapons. The Allies boast a Robot Control Center and Chrono Prison. Amongst the new Soviet weaponry is the Siege Chopper and Boris, a machine-gun-toting commando that can call down laser-guided bombing strikes. The high-quality in-game movies tell the story of Yuri and his insidious plot. The popular characters of Red Alert 2, such as Tanya and Romanov, are back to wage war in cities around the world, including London, Cairo, and San Francisco.

  • Ausom
    Mind Contral is asom. Makes all other teams better, and Yuis is the best....more info
  • The Best Expantion Ever!
    I didn't think they could pull it off, but Westwood has crammed hundreds of awesome unusual things into the best game, making it even better. Yuri's revenge is a must have for RA2 fans, C&C fans, and just lovers of intense strategically action....more info
  • Yuri's Revenge almost seems pointless...
    Well I am finally back to review the Add On pack for Red Alert 2, Yuri's Revenge. Yuri's Revenge almost seems pointless because the AI in the game is still the same it seems, all the back to the Original Command and Conquer. The multiplayer aspect of the game is a HUGE PLUS. But let's talk about different aspect of Yuri's Revenge Single Player.


    The GAME - The storyline is very odd and weirder now that Red Alert:Yuri's Revenge is messing with Time Travel. Yuri has taken over the world with his Psychic Dominators and now it is up to you (Allies or Soviets) to go back in time and foil his plans. There are two Jurassic Park like scences which really play out funny. Ray Wise has made another appearance in this movie which really goes to show you how well his acting career is doing (LOL). Pretty simple rules apply here, Destroy Yuri and stop his Psychic Dominators. One of the battles will even take you to the Moon to fight Yuri!


    The GRAPHICS are what to be expected from a RTS. Not anything really special to look at but your standard 2D explosions and firefights. But I still love how much Command and Conquer has come from the first game and its Pixalated units.


    The GAMEPLAY is very nice with many new features and weapons. It is now even easier to get veteran units than before and I don't know what I would do without the ability to Garrison buildings. The Battle Fortress is a very awsome unit next to the Tank Killers and the Soviets still rule with the APOC tanks.


    GAMEPLAY BALANCE - Man don't start me on this again because I could go on for hours! I have seen better AI in Quake 2 and even Star Trek Armada. And again you only have to build a certain unit to pretty much destroy the computer. On the Allies side its all about building Prism Tanks. Amass about 20 of these units and you can destroy any base. On the Soviet side all you have to build is about 15 APOC tanks and you can overwhelm any base. Playing around with different stratagies is fun, but sooner or later you are ready to whip the tar out of the computer and complete the mission.


    Overall, I found this game to be enjoyable and a worthy add on to Red Alert. With different Units and three different sides to play in Multiplayer it makes to be quite spectacular. Yuri on the other hand was a complete ... His taunting in the game was pretty annoying and it really seems he could not even Mind Control himself a Pizza. But it was still enjoyable. I wonder what new Command and Conquer will come next after Renegade....more info

  • Great addition to a true classic
    This game is very fun, and a necessary addition to anyone's game library. The storyline got a little whacky, but that is part of the charm. I like the new units that were added, and the ability to mix Allied and Soviet tech in some of the later missions.

  • i love it
    i love this game, personally i think it's the best game ever made by westwood. I recommend anyone to buy this and the regular Red Alert 2 becuase it's needed for yuri's Revenge, I think they should make Red Alert 3:) it's awesome...more info
  • This is great
    Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, Yuri's Revenge:

    I'm in college now so I don't have much time to sit down and play computer games but I decided that I should probably make time for this one.

    Let me just say that I am amazed, this is what an expansion pack should be. The game also serves to illustrate something that I think some software companies have forgotten that namely is just because your product looks good does not mean it is fun.

    You're product could be the best looking product on the planet but if the game play sucks all you have is a nice looking game that sucks.

    In this case it does not matter that I found the plot to be ludicrous and strange the good game play more than makes up for it. Weather it is leading a last desperate charge towards a base, digging in and defending your territory and calling an air strike the whole game just feels like somebody who was designing it cared about the consumer for once(which I might add happens only rarely in a game produced by EA admit it).

    I would also like to comment on an aspect of the game that I usually don't bother with single player missions they are fun to play and unique this is probably the best Command and Conquer installment since Covert Operations that is the very first expansion pack made for command and conquer(the original)

    Overall-In this way Yuri's Revenge is a complement to Red Alert 2 rather than a letdown like I've found most expansion packs to be. Everything works so closely together EA should be proud....more info

  • THE BEST EXPANTION PACK
    This is probably one of the best expantion packs I own. The new units are really sweet. I highly recomend that you should get it....more info
  • This is cool
    I think that this game will be great.Especialy since you can play as Yuri in skirmish.Red Alert 2 was awsome so tnis game is going to be better.I suggest ordering it... It will be the equal for Tibreian Sun Firestorm.Thats all i can say for now>...more info
  • Yuri has his own game
    Yuri is the bad guy in this game. I do wish you can use his army to win the whole but you can only pick the American or the Soviet Union. The only way you can shoose to be Yuri's army is playing the skirmish game, those are just parctices. Their's no two seperate disc. I wish the story line in this game was a bit longer just like the (Red Alert 2) game. The Russions have a new sidekick name Boris, he can call an air strike by point a red lazer at a target when it turns red the air craft comes and hit's it plus he is a fast shooter with his machine gun. I really love fighting in Egypt if you distroy the pyramids a walking mummy comes out. In Hollywood celebrities will help you fight the enemy. The part I thought was most cool is this giant machine that Yuri uses to mind control people once it do that the computer will show Yuri's face with him saying "be one with Yuri"....more info
  • this game is the best
    this game is the best because not only does it ad on to red alert 2 its a whole other game ( it really deserves 10 stars)...more info
  • Awesome!
    This is a great expansion pack for a great game. The story line plugs into the story line from RA2. You can be the allies or soviets. Theres a few missons where you go back to missions from original RA2 and be the soviets in that battle instead of the allies. Some of the new vehicles are cool and Yuri's troops and structures are strange, but cool. If you like RA or RA2 this is for you....more info
  • Best One Yet
    Yuri's Revenge is one of the best expansion pack I've ever purchased. On Red Alert 2, the original game, I play multiplayer a lot. With Yuri's Revenge, multiplayer is a ton more exciting. There are new units asnd structures you can use defeat other players. If you're not able to beat the co-op missoins you can go on-line and download trainers. Overall I think this game is the game to buy....more info
  • Awesome!!!!!
    There was a time when I thought that a game couldn't get any more fun than Red Alert Aftermath...then Yuri's Revenge came along. Jesus H. Christ this game is fun!! If you play in skirmish mode, you can make this game last for days. ...more info
  • DIG IT
    I am a die hard red alert 2 fan. I think this expansion will be westwood's best ever. i am definetly buying it. And if you like ra2 as much as I do then you should buy it too....more info
  • A New RA2
    This game is going to be one of the best games westwood has ever come out with.There will be new units and a completely new team. Strategies will completely differ from those in RA2. Giving you a new challenge with harder enemies and stronger allies. I suggest buying this game if you like Strategy games or just plain like westwood games. This game is going to be AWESOME!!!!!...more info
  • NOT WORTH THE MONEY!
    This is another brilliant masterpiece made by westwood producers but buy something more worthwhile. Yes it is pretty cool yuris revenge does have some new vehicles, maps, and single player campaigns. But I played yuris revenge once its basically the same thing as Red ALert 2 same grapics same gameplay. So after playing it once I just stuck to the regular RA2 and uninstalled yuris revenge. Kind of a boring expansion pack if you ask me. Waste of memory, waste of time, but worst of all waste of your money! Please take my heed of advice and go buy some tinkertoys or something. unless you have some money to burn!...more info
  • Oh, good lord!
    I wish i could give it less than 1 star, but thats the lowest that amazon.com will let me go. Don't listen to the oher reviews here, trust me. (...) If you're going to spend time playing a strategy game, at least do yourself a favor and play something GOOD (...)...more info
  • Less RA2 more TIberian Sun
    I just bought the game a few days ago and I enjoy having new missions and what not. The major issue i have with this expansion is that it reminds me of the infamous Tiberian Sun. C&C games are always good when Westwood does not go over board with such exotic technology such as the Yuri "disk" which look like flying saucers. RA2 is an excellent game...but if you didnt like Tiberian Sun then you may want to reconsider purchasing Yuri's Revenge....more info
  • rip roaring fun!
    gave me more of everything I LOVED about Red Alert 2 and then some! Yuri is hysterical and the game play is awesome. Keep it up Westwood....more info
  • AWESOME!
    This game rocks! Be careful when you put the game on hard, up till the 4th or 5th level, you need to be on your toes cause the computers hittin' you from every which way! They finally made the computer a worthy opponent to play. It puts even some veteran players to shame.(Except me) BUY THIS GAME! YOU WON'T REGRET IT!...more info
  • Add-on to the Best Game!
    This is one of the better add-ons I have played. I would get this if you own Red Alert 2, like Rts games, and or like military games. It's very well put together and is always fun. The one thing that gets me is the loading times, they take forever! I still play it and enjoy it, but still. If you are a Red Alert nut get this asap. It's great!...more info
  • The best I have played without doubt !!!!!
    THis game is my favorite!!!!!!!!!!!!It has prism tanks ,acopylcse tanks,snopers,battle fortresses,chrono legenairres,terror drones,mind control,brutes,spies,boris and kirov airships!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The campaignes are a bit short but the skirmishes make up for it.I just love the team allience!!!!In that u have allies near your base and they help u figt against the AI.I GOT IT 5 MONTHS AGO AND PLAYING DAILY I STILL HAVE'NT GOT BORED OF IT.SO BUY IT. ...more info
  • Fun expansion for the classic Red Alert 2!
    This is another great addition to the Red Alert series of games, and has some significant improvements over Red Alert 2.

    There's lots of great new units that will make a showing in Yuri's Revenge that you won't find in the original Red Alert 2, many more single player campaigns to enjoy, more awesome Red Alert campaign videos, and cool weapons and technologies to play around with.

    My only real complaints are that I think the Yuri faction isn't as fun as good old allied/soviet type battles, and the music isn't as good as Red Alert 2 or Red Alert 1 music.

    The campaigns are fun though, and there's nothing stopping you from just playing allied vs soviet or vice versa only in the skirmishes if you want, which I usually prefer to do.

    If you liked the other C&C (Command and Conquer) games, you should enjoy this quite a bit I'd say. ...more info
  • The bomb
    This game is so fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every one would like this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The weapons are so much better then Red Alert 2! They buildings, men, and tanks are more realalistc. But it gets a little hard around the 10th mission! You should buy this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...more info
  • Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 Expansion: Yuri's Revenge
    A must have for all, from serious gammers to casual players. The graphics are supurb. The game makers really outdid themselves. I am relatively new to C&C, but in no time I have becom hooked!! I just recently got my 13 year old sister addicted as well. See you all online !!...more info

  • Yuri's Revenge is a great sequel!!
    A great game counterpart to Red Alert 2. This takes off right after ra2, having the inferior seeming Allied forces win the war. (Sigh.) However, Yuri has defected from the Soviet Union, building his own excellent army to play in skirmish or internet. You can command all armies in the most fun gameplay of them all, skirmish. New units have been acquired by the Allies and Soviets, to fight Yuri's diabolical army. Anyway, Soviets are making a comeback with all their units, with several marvelous brand new ones. The cool Siege Chopper has a machine gun to dispatch allies or yuris infantry forces, and an artillery cannon, (oh yeah!) to shoot the crap out of the allied structures and massacre their infantry, even the anti air guardian GIs will go down right away to these big guns. Attacking a Yuri base with these requires more caution, as mind controlling units and buildings can wreck a small force. Just place them away from Psychic Towers and fire away! The Soviet hero unit, Boris, is better than Tanya, as his range and ease of use is greater. Place a laser designator on any building, and some MIGs will demolish the structure with their missiles. The Industrial Plant reduces the build time of their powerful vehicle force. Yuri's army is quite fun to command, as his units are destructive and great to use. His miners are pretty good, but the slaves are extremely low on health, so guard them carefully. His Iniatiates are the best basic infantry, and are very dangerous when garrisoned in buildings. His Yuri Clones and Prime can fry infantry, (civilians) and control them. Primes can take over most of the armies buildings. The Virus sniper kills infantry with a toxic residue. His brutes are hulks that can crush tanks and infantry that stand in his path. His vehicles include one similar to the Grizzly and Rhino, the Lasher, and a Gatling Tank that has spinning barrels that can tear apart army men. Another addition to his mind control technology is the mastermind, a vehicle able to control 3 units at a time. (ONLY THREE PER DEVICE!!) Magnetrons can fry buildings and drag vehicles in the air with a magnetic beam, which won't effect infantry. His structures and Naval Yard are neary identical to the three armies ones, except the Psychic Tower can mind control units, and Gatling Cannons are emplaced anti infantry guns. Yuri's Naval Yard produces Boomer missile launchers like Dreadnaughts, and torpedoes like Attack Subs. His superweapons are the Genetic Mutator and the Dominator. Mutators turn any infantry into Brutes, while the Dominator controls and destroys everything in a wide radius. The allies are still here, and have mind control immune vehicles, (don't be TOO afraid of them) which are Robot Tanks with weak armor, and the massive Battle Fortress. 5 or so deployed grouped up Siege Choppers and some Lasher Tanks are enough to destroy a single Fortress, and a Yuri Clone can take one over with his mind. The way to build Robot Tanks for allies is to build a Robot Control Centre.
    Yuri's Revenge has some gameplay changes. Team Alliance has maps designed for close battle with teams.
    There are some neutral units on some maps. Civilians can carry very weak pistols, and automobiles are good to mind control and scout with.
    If you read this review, just play this COOL GAME!!...more info
