    The only reason I can't give this game a ten is because its over ten years old and the graphics are a little dated, but not as much as your think!
    This game was ahead of its time in every way, no other RTS has repeated its brilliance.
    great campaign great maps great story great Innovative and hugely fun game play in every area, and with three factions that all work differently but are

    I dont think anyone will ever read this review because the game is so old but i can honestly tell you this is one of the most perfect RTS ever made. Simply brilliant, i cant get into detail because i will be here all night. I played this game when it first came out back in 2002 and now its 2016, i have just reached prestige master on BO3 and have decided to download the game on Steam andI dont think anyone will ever read this review because the game is so old but i can honestly tell you this is one of the most perfect RTS ever made.

  1. A mixed bag of great ideas and poor implementation.

    It's also great to see something as real-world integral as a searchlight become almost necessary in an RTS wargame.

    Introduces many new and interesting elements into the sometimes stale RTS genre; although it has a moderate learning curve, fans of the genre will want to pick this one up.
