    Actually EA offers few free games. It's not Red Alert 2 though, but they do offer these games for free:

    - original Command & Conquer + addons
    - Red Alert 1 + addons
    - Tiberian Sun + addons

    Even though i'd love to see Red Alert 2 with addon to be free but Tiberian Sun isn't bad either.
    I's dark graphics atmosphere, dark music, futuristic units, hostile environments. And the game has laserz! Tiberian Sun still has a special place in my memory because of all that.

    Several C&C Renegade fans have set up a team to create their own free-to-play Renegade game that's called Renegade X: Black Dawn which includes a single player and multi-player mode (this last part is not released yet); the single player game is already released this year: http://www.renegade-x.com/site/

    The graphics look pretty good because the use of Unreal 3 engine.

    This Renegade-x looks like UT2K4 update or what UT3 was supposed to be.
    Thanks.
    I knew some intelligent people would start making games again or mods of crap games to fix the developer insanity / failures.
