In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Command & Conquer set the stage for most RTS games back in the day and Generals takes it in a whole new direction, Leaving the old 2-D PC RTS games in the dust by introducing a new polygonal 3-D Command & Conquer world at our finger tips.

When i first grabbed to box of this game i was stunned at the fact that it was true, 3-D graphics have been itroduced to the C&C World in a large scale. But because of the the graphics were lacking of detail and contrast, making then choppy. The building, tank, and aircraft models were detailed and crisp. But use the new zoom feature on one of you infantry units and all you see is about 6 colored polygons with a rifle. It looks as if they didnt even try to texture the units, but just colored them. The Environments of Generals ar full of interesting things, suches cars and cities to use for a more tactical gaming style. You can man a skyscraper and use it for a fortress and take out enemys with riflemen. All aspects of the enviornment or crisp, if only they worked on the unit models.

When I started to play this game, the aspect of gameplay has changed drasticly from the origional. First off, there are differant sides of play. Instead of GDI and NOD there are USA, China, AND GLA (Global Liberation Army) which brings in a newer, more realistic feel to this game. You start out with your basic infantry you would see in real life but once you get higher in the General scale you get more of a Sci-Fi feel of the game, with stuff you could really only find in a game of C&C. Now they even incorperated the dreded builder into the game. No more cool hi tech buildings popping from the ground any more. I guess it was to add to the fact that this is more of a modern war game and they are trying to make it as real as possible. But for any hardcore C&C player, it will take no time to ajust.

So, i guess EA/Westwoods Finally game together and Westwoods last game period turned out to be everything a die hard C&C fan will enjoy, and even some new ones, This game gets a B+ in my book.
