C&C's first venture into the modern-world battlefield with units that aren't totally insane (and awesome), C&C Generals still holds up pretty well even now.

I've been following the Command & Conquer series since day one, and I was a little skeptical that they were discarding the corniness, the semi-believable resource, and the alternate-universe setup in favor of a more realistic setting. I won't go too far into the story, but it is relatively believable, amazingly so for a Command and Conquer game, and the writing and voice acting is far less bland (or over-the-top) than you would expect from games today. The graphics have aged a bit, but you have to zoom in all the way to see that the character models are blocky. On a high-resolution setting (easily done with a laptop that's a year and a half old, like mine) the game looks beautiful and rarely lags even when there's a lot of action going on on-screen. There's a few missions that are set up a bit odd, but for the most part this game is well worth the buy. There is an expansion pack that is also worth looking into, but if you want the cutscenes included, you'll have to avoid buying the games in the C&C First Decade bundle pack.

This game is a wonderful game. It is a tad old, but you should still buy it. Let me give you a run down of the basics: there are 3 teams, USA, China, & GLA (Global Liberation Army). The USA has the most technology, but have the most costly units. China is in between for technology and has an average price for units. GLA has little technology and cheapest units. Each side has a devastating weapon too. USA has particle cannon, which is the best because you can move it around to destroy buildings. China has the nuclear missle, which is pretty decent on units and small buildings, but not a whole lot devastating on large ones. The GLA has the scud storm, which does about the same amount of damage as the nuke. You start out building your base. You can build tank factories, soldier barracks, supply depots, base defenses, power plants, and some others depending on who you are. Then what you do is give your enemy hell. The graphics are nothing to marvel over at normal level, but if you have a powerful machine, you can crank up the graphics for a sweeter picture. There is a campaign mode too. One for each side. They are nothing super special, but can give you a little diversity when playing single player all the time. If you want to know more, check out the review on [...]. This game is a must buy, and since it is so cheap now, why wouldn't you buy it??

The Command & Conquer Generals series helped start the biggest push towards more and better RTS (Real-Time Strategy) games. The graphics may not be up to par with today's standards, but the mechanics and play style is still excellent, many of the newer RTS's still using very similar setups.
