Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Commander’s Challenge is a stripped-down version of the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Uprising with only the challenge game mode retained.


The challenge mode has a world map screen where the player can select from different challenges to enter, which play like regular missions from the original game. Under Futuretech command, there are Soviet, Allied and Rising Sun units available to conquer each of the main and side challenges unlocking more units along the way.


The console version also uses a revamped control scheme allowing the player to handle everything under one menu: The player can select and cycle through units by simple button presses and has an efficient radial menu that replaces the regular one, which is used to construct buildings, issue unit commands and battle styles.
