Command and Conquer HH

Nintendo 64 Command and Conquer, arguably the best war-strategy game ever, has unexpectedly moved from the PC to the N64. If you are unfamiliar with C&C, the basis of the game is to build up your armies and destroy any opposition. Although at first glance this console version has a certain fluidity, the aggravating control system and slow game-speed removes any potential polish from this sub-standard game.
