The Command & Conquer series is all about preventing factions from conquering the world. But sometimes it’s difficult to tell which faction is truly evil, and which isn’t.
Yuri’s Revenge, the expansion pack released for C&C: Red Alert 2, doesn’t make it any easier than other entries in the series.
Yuri, an ex-Soviet figure and his secret army, definitely feel like the bad guys. But the truth is a little different from first glance…
And if you haven’t had enough of this constant state of warfare, or if you want to come back to Yuri’s Revenge after a long pause, you will definitely want to take a look at this amazing list of mods.
They expand the experience considerably with tons of new content and features to boot.
10. New War
Nostalgia is a powerful thing.
The more we move forward, the more we start longing for days long gone. Days when warfare was actually more advanced!
The New War mod grants brand new units and structures that are meant to recreate the feeling and balance of the original Red Alert (arguably one of the better C&C games).
The missions haven’t been changed at all, so you may run into some minor balancing issues. But it’s a low enough price to pay to finally get rid of those ancient World War II armaments.
9. Yuri’s Revenge Revolution
Do you hear that call? It’s the call of the revolution, my friends.
The Yuri’s Revenge Revolution mod is more of an expansion to Yuri’s Revenge, rather than a gameplay overhaul, but still an incredible mod nonetheless.
With this we get 60 new units on top of the existing ones, as well as 10 new structures and some graphics enhancements. The best addition, however, is a new AI system that finally makes computer-controlled opponents worthy adversaries.
No more amassing units to win, folks: time to play smart!
Maybe you love Yuri’s Revenge, but Tiberian Sun still holds a place in your real-time strategy loving hearth?
You have indeed come to the right place.
The C&C Mashup mod is a total conversion mod for Yuri’s Revenge that introduces units and features taken from Tiberian Sun, and overhauls them so that they’re balanced enough for Yuri’s Revenge mechanics.
This total conversion is meant for multiplayer only. So you’re out of luck if you’re going for a solo run, but definitely keep this one in the back of your mind for a multiplayer session.
7. War Location: Global Crisis
With the Command & Conquer series featuring so many excellent games, does it really surprise you to see a total conversion mod that picks features from these older titles?
War Location: Global Crisis does indeed take some features from C&C Generals: Zero Hour. But it does not aim to create a sequel to the now-classic game… rather it sets out to be more of an expansion.
This means the new additions are fully integrated into a story that will make all fans of the series pleased with the end results.
When the Apocalypse finally arrives, you have no choice but to go all out.
And that’s what we get with the Apocalypse mod.
It adds 140 new units, structures, technologies, and SuperWeapons to Yuri’s Revenge, expanding strategic options considerably and giving you the chance to completely dominate your opponents in both single-player and multiplayer.
Not a mod for those that seek balanced experiences, that’s for sure.
5. C&C: Reloaded
Out with the modded factions that are not all that different from one another, and in with those that are as diverse as possible.
A little variety goes a long way in making global domination more exciting, after all.
The C&C: Reloaded mod introduces multiple new factions to Yuri’s Revenge, including the GID and Nod, who all come with some unique traits that make them markedly different from the others.
In case you like forcing your way through the game with brute force, you can pick the Soviet Union with their massive army.
Or if you’re in for something like domination with a little bit more of finesse, pick the Yuri, and watch your enemies kneel in horror as you unleash those terrible psychic weapons.
It’s almost scary how most of these Yuri’s Revenge mods focus on bringing units and technology that has no relation to World War II.
This sounds like a lot of missed opportunities, looking at the D-day mod.
This mod gives us thirteen different playable countries, all coming with different units depending on the chosen timeframe, ranging from pre-war times to post-war times up to 1960.
The final timeframe lets you go all-out with units from all previous times, letting you create the true definitive World War II combat scenario.
3. Red Alert 2: Reborn
C&C: Yuri’s Revenge is a very old game. So much that it needs more than a new coat of paint to feel fresh and relevant again.
The amount of tweaking needed is really daunting, but it wasn’t enough to stop one development team from overhauling the game in the proper way.
Red Alert 2: Reborn is a massive gameplay overhaul that improves everything you’d want. It touches the AI and introduces a lot of new units that can be used in both Skirmish and Multiplayer modes.
In light of the super units introduced in Reborn, the development team also rebalanced all existing units to make them as useful as they are in the vanilla game.
No one is getting left behind, folks!
2. Red Resurrection
Much like the Reborn mod, this Red Resurrection mod truly aims to make the game relevant in today’s gaming landscape. How?
By providing new features and a very dynamic experience to keep you engaged every step of the way.
The main difference with the Reborn mod, outside of the new units, tech trees, and special support powers, is the inclusion of new missions that are specifically built around these new features.
Better yet, the mod is still receiving support from developers as of this writing. So you can expect even more content to be added in the future.
1. Mental Omega
Mental Omega isn’t just a Yuri’s Revenge gameplay overhaul.
It’s an expansion that almost feels like a sequel.
Starting as a simple gameplay rebalance mod, Mental Omega is currently the only gameplay overhaul for Yuri’s Revenge that can be considered as the game’s true sequel.
This is thanks to a new campaign for all three vanilla factions, and of a brand new faction called Foehn Revolt, which is a technologically-advanced faction that allowed the devs to go wild with units.
You wanted the best of both worlds.
And with Mental Omega I’d say you’ve got it.
