Hello! I'd like to say I've been a C&C fan since the very original, Tiberian dawn, and I've always liked em. Although C&C wasn't my first RTS (Starcraft was) it was one of my favorites. Tiberian Sun was kind of a let down for me but Red Alert was great. Red Alert 2/Yuri's revenge was too "humorous" for me I guess. Anyways, who here has CnC: Generals? I got it and well, so far it's been pretty fun. I still haven't decided on a favorite side yet though but I seem to like the Chinese.

:cya: :cya:

I used to play a ton of C&C, sounds like your views are close to mine.. tiberian sun == ok... red alert == badass ;)

how does generals rank on that?

Generals is quite possibly the best CnC game of all time. It doesn't have as many cutscenes as the older games between missions but it isn't unrealistic like "You've gotta stop Yuri from taking control of all the minds in the world commander! Wouldn't that just be SWELL!!!????" I personally...hated RA2 on some levels. RA2 and ESPECIALLY Yuri's Revenge totally went off from the seriousness in Red Alert. Tanya was just something pretty to look at. She didn't really do much for me otherwise. I didn't really care if the characters lived or died. In FACT half the time I wished Kane would come back in time and have some Nod stuff. But... Unfortunatley Kane made no appearances. It's kind of strange that they lead us on at the Soviet ending in RA yet in RA2/Yuri's Reveng we get absolutely no mention of him.

Tiberian Sun was more serious than RA2 by far, but not as serious as Red Alert. And even though Red Alert is very realistic, it's DEFINITLEY not as realistic as Generals. Generals is a good 3D RTS game that has a more old school feel to it for me. It's not all about your special heroes doing their special things and having to protect them or else the mission is failed. It's more about building up lots of forces and breating the living HELL out of your enemies. ;) And isn't that what these games are all about?

I've always been a fan of C&C...just read the review of Generals on firingsquad. And well, ANY game with a nuke that impressive is worth buying :naughty:
