Shame Really, could have been sooo good,
This review is from: Command & Conquer: Generals (PC CD) (Video Game)
I'm a big fan of the past C&C games and was looking forward with baited breath to the realise of Generals.
When it came I was instantly blown away by the graphics, smooth and details (if a little resource hungry). They had for the first time changed the building and unit manufacture menus, it took a little getting used to but is straight forward enough, if a little ungainly. The units have become more akin to real life (gone are the tessla tanks and radio-active splurge guns :), I really love the marine’s abseiling into buildings from helicopters though.
I think this game has some exceedingly good ideas and innovations but in doing so they have lost the fun that was rampant in Red Alert 2.
After reading a previous review, I understand that Westwood is no longer, which is a pity as I would have loved to have seen what they would do with this game platform to create Red Alert 3.
All in all, a good game but lacking the sparkle that make Red Alert 2 a great game.
