Ah, Red Alert, a favourite franchise among many, and the third instalment of the series is particularly great. Now, finally, China joins the battlefield alongside Japan, the Allies, and the Soviet Union, thanks to a Chinese mod team, and it's pretty great.
The mod fits right into the game, and comes with it's own unique buildings and units, rather than superimposing new textures onto existing assets, a move which is most welcome. Interestingly, buildings are dropped from the sky rather than built, and new anti-matter weaponry is available for the faction, rather than the traditional ammunition of the era.
The mod has high attention to detail and great polish, and even includes all new audio and intro videos.
There's a few downsides, though. The mod is currently only available in Chinese, however, the authors state that an English translation is currently in the works. There's been some criticism from the community over the mod, too, with some saying that it's ill-fitting for the universe, and may even border on Chinese propaganda or nationalism, given the country's minimal involvement in the conflict of that era.
If you're interested in picking the mod up, however, you can download it, and follow the mod's progress, on their ModDB page here.
