 PC Gamer Awards Westwood!
Posted Friday, February 16, 2001

Stop...you're making us blush.

We were thrilled when the fans embraced Red Alert 2 and were even more excited when we picked up the latest issue of PC Gamer. The prestigious magazine recently awarded Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 Best Real-Time Strategy and Best Multiplayer Game in their Seventh Annual PC Gamer Awards.

In a year packed full of new RTS titles, RA2 took the top spot. PC Gamer mentioned the captivating single-player campaigns and awesome speed as reasons for awarding RA2 this impressive distinction.

"From the high-quality opening cinematic...to its fast-moving addictive gameplay, Red Alert 2 is an all around triumph," said PC Gamer. "It does everything that a good sequel should: deliver an updated play experience while retaining the familiar feel of the original."

PC Gamer also recognized RA2's outstanding multiplayer component by awarding it Best Multiplayer Game.

"Kudos to Westwood for creating both a kickass addictive experience and a user-friendly interface that makes finding and setting up multiplayer matches over Westwood Online easier than with any other RTS," said PC Gamer.

Thanks to all our fans who keep Westwood Online an vibrant place to chat and play games. Check out the full article in the March 2001 issue of PC Gamer.
