C&C Generals is the latest game that follows gaming industry standards --

The stated system tequirements are far too low.

The AI lays down in Normal difficulty.

The AI cheats in Hard difficulty.

The AI is impossible in Brutal difficulty (but here you'll finally need all the upgrades available).

Multiplayer over the Net is not what you paid for. If you want to play on the net, you better have cable or DSL (don't trust the system specs on this).

Less is more! In any kind of game you choose, the battle will be over quickly. This is due to one of two reasons: 1 You can't cheat like the AI does, or 2: The long range strategic weapons make ALL the maps terribly small. In skirmish, you always start in position one on the map. You'll grow weary of the maps provided very quickly. You can make your own playing maps, but a good map takes a LOT of time to make (these must be balanced)! And, following the industry standard for user made materials, EA will NOT provide support for the Worldbuilder.

Yes. EA Game's C&C Gnerals meets all the indusstry standards. The reported system reqs are too low; the ai fails miseralbly on all difficulty levels; making your own landscapes is encouraged but not supported; and you need a hefty system (Geforce TI 4200) to run all the 'cool' graphics and 'cool' sounds.

I must admit that these graphics and sounds are indeed very good and well done. Now if only this was a GAME instead of a TOY!

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttt.

1st , It's not that hard on Brutal. You just have to have a good stratergy.

2nd , You CAN CHOOSE where you start, and where the coputer starts by clicking on the grey boxes.

3rd , I must admit I DON'T know about the multiplayer component ( only got a 56k modem that drops out whenever it wants), BUT i have played it via LAN with a coupple of mates and it was VERRY COOL.

The GLA's missions caused a bit of an uproar due to the current political climate.

i have never really had any trouble fighting the comp even on brutal. when u have 7 Enemy brutal players it does get interesting tho nearly died that time.

Also why are there so many ppl who just post once or twice then go off???

I've never played neverwind nights but here it's really great. Generals is an awesome game, but it really sux with a bad comp. And how may I ask does the AI cheat?

The way it has a heap of units and rushes you at the start of the mission...

Also it can build, attack in 3 places and build defences do it's upgrades all at once while YOUR tring to do just 1 thing...

It has a big advantage like that.
