Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 packshot image
Like all other Command & Conquer real-time strategy games, up until the expansion pack of Tiberian Sun, Firestorm, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2 contains two distinct story lines depending on which faction the player wishes to play as. Both of the story lines differ in several distinct ways. However, the Allied story line is canon due to the way in which the expansion pack continues. After the attempted conquest of Europe, the Soviet Union is in utter ruin. Joseph Stalin is dead, and the Soviet military has been all but destroyed. The Allies determine that a regime change would cause mass unrest in the Soviet Union, and in order to gain both support and stability in the region, the victorious Allies name Alexander Romanov, a distant relative of Czar Nicholas II, as the puppet Soviet Premier. Romanov acquiesces to the Allies' demands at first, though he builds up the Soviet military for "defense purposes" – a cover for an intended invasion of the United States of America.

Anybody with an Intel HD graphics card may have trouble running this, getting a black screen when the game starts up. To play the game you need to change the graphics to High Performance

If someone doesn't know already, you can edit RA2.ini in the game folder to get any resolution you like. Playing the game in 1920x1080 with my 42" TV is RTS in it's finest! :D

Done a little googling and you can do this at least for C&C Gold with the 1.06a patch :) Also found some high resolution patches for C&C and C&C 95.
