    Generals has a rock-solid single-player game and the most addictive multiplayer skirmishes of the year... A gaming masterpiece.
  2. 100
    One of the biggest improvements to the game is the full-fledged air battles.
  3. The 3D graphics is exceptional, the units, the buildings, their animations also and the visual effects are very detailed and very well done for such a game.
  4. 86
    It’s these little details and the wide array of units for each side that makes Command & Conquer Generals a very entertaining title and the included skirmish mode will keep you entertained for a long while.
  5. 82
    Like Westwood's real-time strategy games, there's a lot of flash here, some of the same old interface problems, and more than enough "yee-haw!" enthusiasm to make up for any shortcomings. Well, almost.
  6. Although Command & Conquer: Generals has many points that has made the franchise so popular over the years, it has been “vanillafied” – it’s been molded to play and appear like every other real-time strategy (RTS) game out there.

    The glossy graphics can't shine off the mediocrity of the Westwood formula. [Apr 2003, p.67]

    C&C Generals is in my opinion one of the best strategy games ever released. Unlike many other games that call themselves "strategy" games,C&C Generals is in my opinion one of the best strategy games ever released. Unlike many other games that call themselves "strategy" games, Generals really requires a good strategy to play well. It is very well balanced and very entertaining while it isn't as needlessly complex as many other strategy games are. Even though the game was release quite a few years before I write this review, I still consider it a must-buy for people who enjoy strategy games. Expand

I am sure I have more than 1000 hours invested, and I could still go back and get my ass handed to me by some hardcore bots. I never had the chance to play it online, but I did skirmish like nobodies business, and the bots were fun to play against obviously. Generals is comparable to it's predecessors: Red Alert 1&2 + Yuri's Revenge, as well as the Original C&C. Generals is awesome as a stand alone, and with the Zero Hour expansion your world can get rocked upside-down. Unfortunately all of the games that follow C&C Generals really were complete trash... every last one. It seems like they tried to focus to hard on the graphics, and forgot completely about the game mechanics. If only EA would just let me direct just one of the current games, I could bring this series back from the grave. Expand

The balance for the 3 sides are totally off, firstly, China which is suppose to be like the zerg there(weak units, but cheap and easy to mass), has got one of the most powerful units there, and their units are not that weak. and USA which is suppose to be the expensive and powerful, is expensive, but the latter needs serious tweaking. the tanks are like not really great, yet the daring costs of it. the strength of USA is suppose to be in its air, but how can its only craft capable of anti air lose to China's ONLY plane!? glaring may the unbalance be, seasoned players adept to it and the climatic battles tend to make players overlook that aspect. the multiplayer support is quite good, although the player matching system could use a little tweaking. Overall, this game has great graphics, good gameplay(sweet and lite, nothing too serious) and is fast paced. For those of you doing some research on this game before deciding to buy and reading reviews and pl's comments, this game is a good go, i'm just being detailed on its flaws =] Expand

    Шикарная игра. Лучшая часть C&C и одна из лучших РТС уж точно.

    This game sucks at StarCraft. Multiplayer is just awful! He is completely unbalanced. The game itself is incredibly boring
