It quite possibly has something to do with the live action trailers. Which, please don't flame me, I know many other people really like, but they personally do nothing for me. Probably due to my not being invested/interested in the C&C franchise as a whole and only having played ZH previously. Digit tells me that the live action clips are a kind of C&C staple and long-time fans of the series enjoy them. They kind of put me off, though. :-\

I guess we'll see; I look forward to reading people's thoughts about the game once it comes out and you've all been playing it for a bit.
*flames* (joke)

But yea, about the clips they are kinda cheesy at first, but if you have been playing command and conquer almost since it started, you learn to love them.

Another thing that riles me is that i find ever since westwood sold out they just haven't felt the "same".
Might just be me though.

Actually, from my understanding a good amount of the Westwood team left when Westwood was purchased by EA to go found Petroglyph:

If you play some of their games, you get to see some of those "Old C&C" conventions.
