Personal review
Command & Conquer is possibly the most imitated game in the PC's history. Indeed, the game itself is far from original, borrowing heavily from Westwood's previous work (and inventor of the real-time strategy genre) Dune II. In C&C's favour, it improved on its forbear in many crucial areas, not least Dune II's interface which was clunky and unintuitive at best. Improvements were also made in graphics and sound, giving the whole package a more polished feel.
All in all, C&C was a technically excellent game which many gamers hold dear.

In 1996 the released an additional mission-cd titled "Command & Conquer: The Covert Operations", featuring 15 more difficult missions and a hidden dinosaur campaign.

Official description
It's a classic real-time strategy game. There exist two parties, NOD and GDI. Both have different units and structures. The game features about 15 mission on each side. In most missions you have to build a base first to build new units and structures. Special harvesters collect the so-called "Tiberium" and convert it to money in a reffinery. The game features fmv after every mission.

Editor note
Diverges from real-world's timeline with a meteorite crashing down near river Tiber in Italy, introducing an alien substance to Earth dubbed Tiberium. Secret society known as Brotherhood of Nod had somehow predicted this event and had developed technologies to harvest Tiberium, much ahead of anyone else (presumably prior to the meteorite falling down on Earth).
