For the price, this package offers a great deal. I greatly enjoyed all of the older C&C titles, so when I spotted this pack I snapped it up. I was definitely looking forward to rekindling all of those old memories when the game arrived, but that was when I ran into trouble. I am running a Windows 7 64-bit machine, which I knew from reading other reviews would cause compatibility issues. The older C&C games simply didn't factor in Windows 7 design, UAC or 64-bit into their software design and so getting the games to run is a challenge. The first one I tried was Red Alert 2, which installed just fine along with all the others. Running it caused an instant crash, so I tried EA's offical 1.1 and 1.2 patches. The result was the same, with an instant crash to desktop. In the end I had to download an unofficial patch and add a separate .ini file to make the game run, at which point it worked like a dream.
I would advise owners of newer machines to carefully read guides available online on how to get these games to work with Windows Vista and 7, otherwise you will be disappointed. Once you get it all working, the games are just as great as they used to be. I was a bit disappointed that EA didn't try and upgrade their install package to try and account for these problems (though I know Westwood was absorbed by EA completely so this may not have been so easy), but as I have been hacking games for a good few years to make them work I didn't mind. If you're not sure if you can manage then do some reading online as stated too avoid being stuck with a large paperweight. I would say though, it is definitely worth the trouble to enjoy hours and hours of exceptional gaming from Westwood Studios!
