I haven't played RA2 in a while and in a way I really miss playing it.

i still havent got C and C 3 yet, i might get it when i finsh/get bored with TotE, bit that could be anytime

personally generals was worse than red alert 2, however if the graphics were beefed up and another expansion was released, i'd get it

I found generals extremely entertaining in multiplayer (probably with a couple of friends), because the game isn't overcomplicated, is quick, and you don't have to give up if you lose 2 beefy units(whatever the case in star/warcraft games).

i agree, just because you lose your 5 overlords to 1 suicide truck doesn't mean its game over, although late game, i tend to find money being rather..... scarse

Generals + Zero Hour gotta be one of the coolest in the series. Like playing most sides. But those laser turrets beats alot of things, though they have a very high need for electricity...

I'll buy the expansion because I have all the games in the series, not crazy about c&c3 though. I think it could've been much better.
the first c&c and generals zero hour remain my favourites.

I've got all C&Cs so far. Going to buy the expansion too.

EA just can't name their games correctly. Kane's Wrath How stupid is that

The C&C 3 should have been tiberian twilight but they just don't care for traditions. The game had normal windows installer. It had turbospeeded gameplay of generals. There was a total lack of apocalyptic atmosphere. or any atmosphere for that matter. They wanted to make a generals like speedy multiplayer game although most of the old players were singleplayer turtles. No one cares for us long time fans.

If you want an incredible mp game just play StarCraft. Nothing can beat it. C&C used to be superior to any game in variety of missions and atmosphere in singleplayer but now it is broken in mp and sp. Sad.

Although EA has owned this from Tiberian Sun its influeance didn't show much until RA2. In RA2 I couldn't bare the USA is great and almighty attitude. The game itself was still amazing but the Soviets got the place as my favorite faction over allies. How did Tanya become american anyway? She was a querilla leader in RA

The Generals was far from C&C game. Even EA admits that they just named it C&C to get extra sales.

Just for the record quess which is my longest C&C 3 game online?
Two and a half hours. That sounds good. Not bad for 3vs3 game. But if you look at the game watch it says 15:59 And if you watch it as a replay you see the game watch is correct No lag in mp, not at all

The campaigns are good and story doesn't suck but it lacks in atmosphere and backgrounds.

If you love Tiberian Dawn and Tiberian Sun you can't stay away from it because of loyalty and will be disappointed. If you have never played them however you will find a very good game with fast and fluid gameplay.

Yeah the game lacked atmosphere. But the storyline was good. Hell if you have to spend so much time and money to develop a storyline like that and its not good i think id go around killing authors.
Im a Global defense initiative fan btw. I like stealth and tactics but GDI seems so much more fun with mammoths rolling over everything

Starts fliping through huge number of C&C memories...
...ah there...
...no that's the dino missions on C&C covert ops...
...there! Now that's the correct one!


Click the speaker on right up corner while pressing shift down.

On C&C: RA: Counterstrike.

There you go.

Generals was alright, but it wasn't C&C. Still don't get how they could think the generic building concept was better than the classic sidebar. At least they brought that back in C&C 3, but it's still lacking since you need to select the building directly for upgrades.
