    Playability is awful, you can't scroll trough the map with keys, you must select buildings to build troops unlike other games in the saga, and the button configuration of the mouse is plainly retard: the left mouse button is used to both select and give orders, meanwhile the right button is used only to deselect.
    Also units don't return enemy fire unless you set them on guard, by default

    Very stupid how you have to build units. It was so easy to build units in Red Alert 2 but now you have to actually click on a building to build the units. Westwood seemed to structure it EXACTLY like warcraft 3. Red Alert is the greatest command and conquer game ever, and one of the best war strategy games. looks great though!

    Pretty graphics, same crappy AI. Here we are in 2003, using 2003 hardware, and yet the AI of the units feels no different than the ones from Dune 2, over 10 years ago. Westwood's AI abilities and programming priorities are a joke.

    The worst C&C to date, finish it in half a day, and reflect on its shocking balance of the three forces (GLA is far too strong vs the other 2 teams). Crap Controls, your units will always wander into danger, Long range weapons will NEVER fire unless told to. U can't even ROTATE, even though its a fully 3D game. I hate it, EA has insulted a once great series.

    The graphics and animations are the best I have yet to see in a RTS, and the in-game effects are powerful. Just get ready to laugh like a maniac at what the units say during the game.

    Generals has a rock-solid single-player game and the most addictive multiplayer skirmishes of the year... A gaming masterpiece.
  3. With amazing visuals and an arsenal that would make Saddam Hussein soil his prayer mat, C&C Generals is war at its flashiest.
