    Thumbs up Yuri's Revenge

    In the mail the other day was my copy of the RA2 expansion, Yuri's Revenge and I am addicted all over again. The game is more of the same with a few new units thrown in for good measure on the Allied and Soviet sides but what I really like is the little touches Westwood put into the game.

    For example, on the Hollywood level, it's possible to get a hero unit (think Tayna) that is also a Hollywood movie star. One of the ones I've found was based on Clint Eastwood. He would move around saying things like "In the line of fire" or "Magnum by my side". Nice!

    Other touches included so far (i'm only on the 3rd level!) was defeding a software company in the Seattle area modeled after Microsoft complete with a mock Bill Gates, a huge basket of "apples" on his desk, and a framed picture of a dollar bill on the wall. Too funny!

    I think if you liked Red Alert, you can't go wrong with this one! Anyone else pick it up?
