C&C 3 Previews

Play.tm has emailed me about a demo-review/game preview they've written:
The first thing that hits you in the face when you start the game for the first time is the amazing presentation that has gone into its menu system and FMV's. Yes, we have returned to the glory days of Full Motion Video with real life actors for this game bringing back a certain nostalgia and love for the older titles in the franchise. In the cast list we have the likes of Josh Holloway (Lost), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Michael Ironside (Starship Troopers) and of course Joseph D. Kucan, face of the enigmatic Kane (yes, somehow he is still alive!). Production value has quite obviously been high on the agenda, but does it work? Gladly the answer is yes. Personally I found the briefings in Generals to be very dull, the addition of the FMV sequences really spices-up matters and draws you into the story. After playing the demo through to completion I felt the need for more, so in that respect the snippet of gameplay offered really did its job well.
There's not a ton of new info, but it's a good overview of the demo.
