Description: Why is this sound so right for this game? It isn’t particularly beautiful, but the sound works perfect for Red Alert 2.
When I was a year of 12 I played this game very often with a friend and eventually 50% of our conversations were filled with “electrician in the field”. The sound for each unit differs and it helps you to define what kind of unit you’ve selected. Indeed, this is done in a lot of RTS games, however, in Red Alert it are clear, unique sounds that for me became classic for me.
The background sound (certainly with the voices in the back) gives you a stressed feeling, and you feel the pressure of playing against a brutal enemy.
