Product Description

Command & Conquer: Generals brings Real-time strategy fans the excitement and combat action they crave, in this fast-paced, intense new adventure!

From the Manufacturer

In a time of modern war, recent military aggressions around the globe have many nations worried. Between the United States, China, and the Global Liberation Army, tensions run high. Their leaders profess no interest in escalating the situation, but words ring hollow when satellite photos tell a different story.

UNITED STATES: America's military leader must use the world's most advanced military to root out an elusive foe. Eradicating the cell-based GLA will take courage, conviction, and the will to see a prolonged campaign through to the end.

GLOBAL LIBERATION ARMY: Facing superior firepower, the GLA embraces bio-terrorism, sabotage, and suicide bombings to further its political agenda. But leading a chaotic group of freedom fighters against two global superpowers will take some doing.

CHINA: No longer just a red-communist step-child, China's modern army is well financed, with a strong nationalistic bent. Parading technology like Dragon Tanks and nuclear missiles, China's military goes beyond simple troop numbers.

Features:

  • Wage real-time war in more ways than ever with a modern and near-future arsenal.
  • Command the powerful U.S. forces, the vast Chinese war machine, or the resourceful Global Liberation Army.
  • Battle it out in unprecedented detail on full 3D environments.
  • All-new units and tactics with maximum destructive capability, including Aurora Strike Bombers, Dragon Tanks, and much more.
  • Team up with eight friends or go head to-head in massive online multiplayer battles.

You won't see this in the advertising...anywhere...but at the moment (and probably permanently) Mac Generals and PC Generals cannot play together online. So, if you are getting this game to play with your PC using friends on your Mac, just forget about it.

Pretty much an entirely new story line and a different universe in this one, so if you're looking for GDI vs NOD action it isn't here. That being said, this is the best looking RTS I've seen, and the gameplay is good and the resource gathering mechanisms are rather simple (i.e. you don't need 9 different elements to build a tank).

One thing to note is that if you're like me and want to beat up on the computer in skirmish mode (custom game configuration where you can take on between 1 and 7 computer controlled opponents) it will slow down if you crank up the number of opponents and the skill level at which they play (I'm on 2x2.3Ghz G5, Radeon X800, 2.5G RAM). The one good thing that can be said about this is that while it does slow down in the heat of battle things keep moving fairly smoothly whereas with my PC version the game begins to stutter and get very frustrating.

First off, the reason it should be called "Age Of Generals". The older Command and Conquer games, for the PC, had a very unique gameplay type and interface that is hard to explain, while Generals is more like your average strategy game, such as Age Of Empires or Warcraft. Also, the money system has changed from the older games.
Now, to the reviewing. WHile it is different from the older Command and COnquers which i lvoe so much, IT IS BETTER THAN ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've played it for PC and it may turn out a bit different for the Mac, but it would probably only be visually different. Choose form 3 unigue armies; The United States of America, The People's Republic of China, and, my favorite, The Global Liberation Army.
the GLA is my fav because I love their cheap disposable units ((i like big armies :) )) and the fact that they don't need power for the buildings.
Another new feature introduced in Command and Conquer: Generals; general abilities. Similar to the God Powers in Age of Mythology, each army has a different set of unique abilities; these abilities can upgrade or battle-harden units,give you new types of units, give you special super weapons, and special sneaky attacks((like China's artillery strike or GLA's Ambush)). Here is 1 example of a General ability from each army:
-USA: A-10 Strike; Up to 3 A-10 THunderbolt II fighters unload their air-to-ground missiles on a target area, devastating everything in that area.
-China: The Red Guard veteran ability gives all Red Guard units battle-hardeness, making all of those units produced start out with Veteran status.
-GLA: The Anthrax Bomb ability lets you send an old bomber to drop an anthrax-filled bomb on a large target area every 4 minutes.

Command and Conquer: Generals is a great game and I'm glad to say the game lives up to the C&C name. Fans of the series will enjoy the simular gameplay but you don't have to be a fan to enjoy Generals. For those of you who are worried it might not be the same since Westwoods name isn't on the box (developer of past C&C games) worry not since Westwood is a part of Electronic Arts.

The interface is slightly different but works out nicely. Instead of having every building option available to you at once, the options for each building become available when you click on them. Another nice change to Generals is the 3D environment. Being able to rotate the camera and zoom in and out is a nice feature to have, especially if your units go behind buildings and you hate the colored shadows that show up to let you know where they are.

There are a few things that I miss from the previous C&C games. There arn't any naval units so if you wanted to blast your enemies base away from off shore with Tomahawk missles, you'll have to keep dreaming. Another thing they took away are the cinimatic live action movies for the storyline missions...in fact, there really isn't much of a storyline at all. I've played a few of the storyline missions and they are pretty fun so far, however, it would have been nice if they had kept the live action movies. from C&C games past.

Overall, I think anyone who is either familiar with the C&C games or likes RTS games should definatly check Command and Conquer Generals out.

I play this game on my recently purchased iMac G4 with an 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM and have not had any problems whatsoever. The box states the requirements are a 1GHz processor. This is an overstatement of the requirements in my opinion. I had a Windows computer with a 1GHz processor and played the PC version and I do not see any difference in the game performances. The MAC version functions very well with an 800MHz processor.

Bought it after playing the demo. it runs well even on my eMac 700, but i do have it maxed out. 160GB Hard Drive and a Gig of memory. note to anyone with same type of machine/processor who wants to buy this game, set all the graphics to the lowest settings. you still get decent eye candy, but i did notice that with the factory setting, the building construction seems cooler on highest and lowest settings. also, when you use the ultimate weapon for either team, you don't see the Big explosion, but for me on loss. I bought it for the amount of thinking you need to do.
