To start with it seems necessary to clarify that what you get in the command and conquer saga is simply the discs and manuals for The First Decade and Tiberium Wars in the same box. For all intensive purposes this copy of The First Decade is no different from that brought alone, the exception being that due to its later release date it lacks the need for patches.
All the games on The First Decade disc will run on vista(32bit) without the need for original game discs, or too much mucking around. If played normally on vista, Tiberium Sun and Red Alert 2 will suffer from errors on start-up and fail to run, while C&C, Red alert, and Generals will run fine. This is rectified by running the program as an administrator, after which all games run with no problems.
As Tiberium Wars is probably the best game in the command and conquer series, it in combination with the first decade represents incredible value. The only thing that could make it any better would be the inclusion of the Kane's Wrath expansion. As for the older games, it would be redundant to reiterate the fame of the C&C franchise. Suffice to say that while C&C and Red Alert are now very dated, and Renegade is still the same abomination it was on its release, Tiberium Sun, Red Alert 2 and Generals are all surprisingly playable and addictive

I bought this DVD in the hope that I could play Red Alert (1). I had previously bought The First Decade for XP but couldn't get it to work despite all the patches. The question was "would this be another flop like First Decade? Or could I play the old favourites again on my relatively modern computer and Vista."

The answer so far is a qualified YES. I could play both the first command and conquer game and Red Alert. But I couldn't play Tiberian Sun or Red Alert 2. However, when I loaded my original Tiberian Sun DVD it played perfectly as did Red Alert 2. I haven't tried the Generals yet, but I imagine they will work from the original DVD's as well. It seems that the Saga DVD prepares the ground for all the old games, and you can now play them on Vista.

Trick is if you buy this you will no doubt have an online gaming connection so to it has been said dated games like these are still haunted by some geek in his bedroom waiting to PAWN you with his hacks. In generals ZH you get HummerVee'd even before you have build your barracks and has like 90% off the game on this first Decade you will no doubt need one. Sufice to say Tiberium Wars is the better of the pack and does see the big leap in 3D graphics from the Generals. This more playable on skirmish because the single player missions are rewarding but seam very repetitive to say the least. After the last instalment KAne's Wrath does what it says on the tin and delivers nothing refreshing in giving your units more beefed up weapons on both factions. Super game trilogy but isn't as promised.

I purchased Command & Conquer the first decade out of nostalgia because I liked the old rather than the later versions of this franchise but it has the same old problems tending to blank out and disrupt the computer so wouldn't recommend it and they appear to flogging a dead horse.
