Command & Conquer Generals
(hx) 12:17 PM CET - Feb,28 2003

Command & Conquer became synonymous with real-time strategy gaming when the very first game in the series was released in 1995. Yeah, we can all remember the high points like Tiberian Dawn(1995), Red Alert(1996), Tiberian Sun (1999), Red Alert II(2000), and recent Renegade (2002). Now, the real-time strategy genre comes back with Generals in full 3D. This is the first 3D C&C RTS game, and in fact, the first one with a totally new engine. Contrary to what others say, the move from the traditional 2D to 3D is a welcomed move for me and many other RTS fans of the C&C series. The C&C series being 2D was a great series already, but making 3D just blows me away, especially for a game this beautiful. So, can Command and Conquer: Generals live up to the standards set by its predecessors?

Command & Conquer Generals takes the C&C series back to its root. Basically, Generals is all-new Command & Conquer, with a modern conflict inspired by events relevant to today. Set 20 years in the future, the game involves three sides, the United States (US), China and the Global Liberation Army (GLA), each with its own campaign, story, units, upgrades, structures, and general abilities. This time, China and the USA are dealing with a common threat, the GLA terrorists.

The U.S. is full of high-tech hardware (Cold Fusion Reactor, Particle Cannon), using plenty of bombs, missiles (Patriot Missile System, Tomahawk), jet planes (Raptor, Aurora Bomber, B-52 Bomber, Comanche +rocket pods, Stealth Fighter +laser missiles) and powerful armored vehicles (Paladin Tank, Humvee, Ambulance). The most effective weapon is Particle Cannon (with 4 minute countdown) that fires a beam from above that can tear through anything. The beam doesn't stay in one spot, it slowly moves around the area you targeted for a few seconds.

China's main strength lies in its large population, and they actually gain a support bonus when they group together, firing faster and causing more damage. The Chinese are armed with units like the Inferno Cannon (artillery), Mig, Dragon Tank (can be ordered to lay down a small wall of flame), Gattling Tank and Troop Crawler (lightly armored infantry transport) which comes complete with twenty Chinese soldiers. The Chinese has a strong assortment of infantry troops, including The Hacker who can disable enemy structures using a computer virus and Black Lotus Black Lotus - China's hero unit - she can capture enemy and tech structures, steal cash. They also have the Nuke Cannon that fires a long range tactical nuke and is extremely effective against structures and infantry, and super weapon - Nuclear Missile which will launch a Nuclear Missile at a targeted area resulting in huge explosion. If you build China fast you can bum rush the enemy and win.

Finally, the GLA are low-tech scavengers, but they are sneaky and flexible - they will adapt to the battlefield and have a surprise element in them. The GLA can produce Technical (pickup truck with a gun), Radar Van (can spot hidden enemy units within range), Quad Cannon (strong against infantry and aircraft), Toxin Tractor (clear buildings of enemy soldiers and contaminate the land), Rocket Buggy, Marauder, Bomb Truck (suicidal truck), SCUD Launcher (long range weapon), Stinger Site (anti-air defensive structure), Tunnel Network (used to quickly move infantry and vehicles between locations) and the Scud Storm - GLA's super weapon that launches (5 minute timer) a volley of missiles at it's target. The missiles not only explode on impact, but leave a toxin residue. Much like the U.S. and the China, also the GLA has a strong assortment of infantry troops, including the RPG trooper (strong against tanks), Terrorist (suicide soldier), The Hijacker (he can capture y enemy vehicle) and Jarmen Kell (he is camouflaged when not attacking). The GLA are probably the most challenging to play for being so unconventional, once they infest an area, they're very hard to get rid of.

With that being said, the units of each side are well designed and balanced. For example, each side has a special unit, Col. Burton for the U.S., Black Lotus for the China, and Jarmen Kell for the GLA. All three units have special abilities that are different but similar enough to where each has a balanced set of advantages and disadvantages. There's also veteran system for all units which makes veterans shoot faster.

In terms of gameplay, only little has changed from the original C&C games - make buildings, collect resources, make a massive army, point and click your way to victory. In other words, Generals doesn't add any revolutionary changes to the formula, but instead concentrates on pure battle. Anyone that has played any of the Command and Conquer games already knows what this game is about. A new addition to the game is the point system - the generals system. I suppose this is where the whole "Generals" thing came from. What the generals system does, is it rewards you for attacking. With those points you can purchase (with points not money) new upgrades or technologies. I must admit that Generals has an intriguing and satisfying single-player experience. Honestly, it was really hard for me to write this review instead playing the game :P The single-player simply rocks, only the campaigns could be longer (Generals contains 7 missions for each side + plus the skirmish with up to 7 AI players) and be interconnected. The three parts to the single-player campaign can be played in any order and are designed to be about the same difficulty. You probably noticed from screenshots, that a new interface puts the construction bar at the bottom of the screen as opposed to the side, and allows for a greater degree of multitasking to be done by the player. In addition, you can minimize it so it doesn't hog up a portion of the screen. Generals is the first game that has sort of a fuzzy logical AI element, meaning that the computer reacts to your actions with a mind of its own. It's sometime pretty cool, however the units don't respond to attacks that exceed their own weapons range, unless they are in guard mode.

For those who have broadband, DSL or Cable or higher, Generals works even better in its online multiplayer mode. There is a lot of replay value here, you can wage war against 7 other people or have 2-4 teams (depending on how many players in available). With players on high end computers along with broadband, you will be playing some great matches with blazing connections to have no lag issues.

Having done many real-time strategies before, I feel Westwood has perfected the formula with this one. This is by far the best C&C game, and quite possibly might be considered one of the finest games that has ever been released. If you are a fan of C&C, you will certainly like C&C Generals. If you can't surpass the system requirements though, don't buy the game. And if you do, don't complain that the game doesn't work :P


System Requirements:
Minimum: CPU: Intel Pentium III or AMD Athlon 800Mhz, 128MB RAM, Nvidia GeForce 2/32MB RAM, 1.8GB HDD Space.
Recommended: CPU: Intel Pentium III or AMD Athlon 1.8GHz or faster, 256MB RAM or more, Nvidia GeForce 3 or better
Reviewer recommends: XP 2200+ or Pentium 4 2.2Ghz, 512MB RAM, GeForce Ti4600/128MB

Additionally, the following specifications are required for multiplayer:
- 256 MB RAM for 3-8 players
- One set of game discs per player. Disc 1 and Disc 2 cannot be used simultaneously for multiplayer games.
- Internet (2-4 players): 56Kbps or faster direct Internet connection
- Internet (5-8 players): Cable, DSL, or a faster direct Internet connection
- Network (2-8 players): TCP/IP compliant network

Note: Some PCs equipped with the VIA KT133a chipset might encounter problems with Command & Conquer Generals.


snd: 5/5 - excellent, each side has it's own music theme, each unit has its own dialogue, Chinese and GLA units have stereotypical accents
gfx: 5/5 - truly amazing - best-looking RTS to date, fully 3D - basic zoom in/out and rotate, extremely impressive explosion and smoke effects, lack of full-motion video (though in-game cinemas are extremely well designed)
playability: 5/5 - damn addictive and very well balanced, revamped C&C style, each faction has a good variety of units, revamped interface situated at the bottom of the screen, skirmish, multiplayer up to 8 players through LAN/Internet, no sea units, huge difference between AI difficulty levels, resource hog - you'll need a system that meets or exceeds the game's recommended requirements, Multiplayer matches have fewer options than they should
genre: 3D RTS
release: February 2003
developer: Westwood Interactive
publisher: Electronic Arts
Excellent
Overall: 88%

great rts i expected alittle more but i'm still very happy with the game

Flukeposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 15:51
Ya i like it too, its pretty impressive. But I'm not liking the video lag associated with big fire fights or when someone nukes, hopefully that will be improved. Aside from the above, the graphics are really well done and it's unfortunate that EA swallowed up Westwood, cuz now i can't trust anything anymore. Compared to AOM, the netcode in this game is a lot better and no tinkering with my network adapters to get the game working, it auto detects my internet interface all the time. This game has also succeeded in keeping C&C alive and with this new engine, I can't wait for the addons. My only real gripe is, 3 races gets boring. Otherwise a 8.5/10

cool usageposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 17:23
how do you get the game to work, it says: "You have a fatal error!" -or something like that.... otherwise its a good game

Flukeposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 19:39
go to westwood.ea.com and click the main site, get on the forums and ask there, this question was asked several times there...

Lokam Turnerposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 19:56
ok, i have some MAJOR complaints about this latest game in the C&C series 1. control options - CANT CHANGE ANYTHING - wtf is that, i emailed ea about it and they said "When the game was in testing, it was not determined that key re-binding would be required or desired. I am sorry that the game does not offer this feature, however I will make a suggestion to our development team." 2. movies - every C&C game has had movies (w/ hit chicks normally) but they thought they would just make some in game movies w/ no real life vids 3. netcode - well since they cant seem to code their network so it can be past the built in firewall's that atleast 10-20% of bellsouth customers use (even when making the system the DMZ & opening all the ports they specify) i would have to say that 'gamespy arcade' is an extremely LAZY way to do netcode basis ea really 'screw'd the dog on this one they were trying to get it out in time for the 'real war' that the US is/will have w/ iraq and didnt care to TEST IT and make sure they were living up to the C&C series HISTORY / LEGACY other than that - the 15min i have played of the game looks good - but when i cant 'adapt' to the keys that 'big brother' says i should use for the game, then its not something i want to pick up and play every 2 sec

Flukeposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 21:05
Hmmm. The netcode and ports is as easy as using the 'netstat' command with no internet connections open. You can easily see the ports and configure your router for these ports. If anything, they require a little bit of computer and network experience which I guess you are lacking. Also, this is the best game by far of the series, the old ones were boring with virtually no graphic changes up and until now. I also have no problem with the key's they are fine. All a matter of preference, but I do agree that they shouldn't have blocked it out. You also have quick reference cards and a pretty good manual.

[HH]Blakkoppz^Dposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 21:31
Its truly sad when a individual reviews a game and to all who read that review and the issues raised by the individual indicate a keyboard to monitor interface prblem. In my opinion this game keeps the feel and fun of the original c and c series. Hat is difficult to do for the creators of a game or genre but to have a nother company pick up on a series and be able to give the player the same fell and flavor ...well, WELL done! In my humble opinion this game is awesome.it is potent and pregnant witht he most inportant thing a game can have.....FUN FACTOR.I too cant let go of the single player aspect and when i tried the skirmish......whoo boy i was beat back to the stone age. BUT i had a blast.Gte the game buy the game play the game it simply rock!

olufsenposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 21:41
C&C was always weak in AI, but this is the triumph. Units will simply do nothing until you move them or put them to guard mode, computer in scirmish easy mode will send every 2 minutes a group of 4-5 units to the same place, so you have to do nothing more for your defence than placing few more units to that area. In medium mode you are going to be destroyed in 5 minutes. The campains are short, battles are short, so I could not get anything from rpg feature of the game. However there are also good points in this game, one of them is music, very characteristic for each race. Graphics are fine, but nothing special these days. May be the strong point is multiplayer, but I didn't try it yet.

Flukeposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 21:59
olufsen, Sends 4-5 men every 2 mins! BS! On easy mode on China 7 they keep coming huge. I don't think you played much beyond map 2 in single player IMHO. I find the AI is fine, I think the replayability is great and the Multiplayer is awesome except for video lag in big events.

Somebodyposted - Feb, 28 2003 - 22:23
The thing about C&C is they are good in the first time. They explode in the first time but it never lasts like StarCraft. I didn't say it is bad, I like the game though.

Erbozposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 03:31
I think this game is rather poor, a mix of polygons, very poor interface, a real mess to select your troops, flakey camera behaviour, etc..etc... They only wanted to show that the could turn the original C&C into a 3D mess. Well, the have succeeded. Poor poor game.

Lokam Turnerposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 04:42
fluke 1. i emailed their tech support about my network problems - they said to wait for the next patch if 1.3 didnt work (and i know what im doing) 2. and like erboz said, the controls sux (even w/ a manual and a quick refernce card) you take any RTS and talk away the ability to change configs, AND REMOVE THE KEYBOARD MOVEMENT KEYS, replacing them w/ a scroll list for your troops in no apparent order; then your just asking for problems

ajaxposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 11:31
omg this game is extremely funn to play but the campaigns sucks only 7 missions on every campaign =( and i loved the videos in ra2 now its only a boring voice

WestwoodSucksposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 12:00
Really terrible game. Ai sucks, graphics is good only on P4 2.4 GHZ with geforce 3 or 4. Few missions and tons of problems and no movie intro. Shit game, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

sowposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 12:01
It looks to me, writinge this kind of review, is like being paid well to do so. This game sux totally. Maybe the 3D engine is okay, but at current gaming industry, every good 3D game have a good 3D engine, and C&C:GS's 3D engine is not outstanding at all. Having played other newer RTS games like war3 & AOM, C&C:GS's interface is completely unacceptable. The inconvenience will just make people who know what a good control interface should be feeling sick. Good luck EA games, this game is not gonna sell.

hxposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 12:29
abc: yeah I am fucking rich (cough..cough...):))...you are wrong, they didn't send me even review copy. Simply some people like Generals and some do not...that's the snag.

ray-bposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 13:23
i have an AMD 1150mz (palomino),256pc2700,GF3Ti200,damn......this game work great,even i set it to high setting,yea...it still have some error/bug... :(

Flukeposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 15:21
hx, half the people on this review thing probably are playing with the warez version. Lokam Turner, your computer sucks obviously (1) since I haven't had 1 single problem. (2) I have no problem with the keys (3) If finished all campaigns and I play regularly on internet and head to head. NO PROBLEMS. The game rocks and Westwood did a freggin excellent job, and this review is right on the money. Now if I could put that review 'it's time to upgrade your video card' behind me, I'd be fine. That's the only thing I ever read here that was so full of BS, it's incredible. hx, you should go to confession for that ;)

Erbozposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 15:23
I really doubt it would allready be a good game when patch 145654515554457 is out.

imyomommasposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 21:52
this is'nt a fucking crack page it's a game review look at astalavista or some shit, as for this game i like a variety of games most rts , fps and rpgs, opinions will vary. if you love rts you won't be going wrong getting this game. Single player campaignes could have gone a bit longer, movies scenes are dodgy ingame cutscenes. skirmish is insane i still wonder where the bastard gets his $$ when i cut him off from supply and he has no blackmaket income ect.. The ai always knows where to drop his ultimate weapon (this was on normal). this game is freakin action packed when you have it on the highest level of difficulty and makes a great Skirmish, multiplayer game. Skirmish is all i play now since i know half the arsholes on the net cheat their dicks off. This game beats the crap outta Unreal 2 6/10 for single player 8/10 for skirmish 9/10 when you fuckers out their play fair

sowposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 22:42
I don't really care whether you've being paid to write reviews hx, but I do feel bad for those who viewed your review, think C&C:GS is a flawless game and pay money to buy a game actually is flawful. This is really a bad review in my opinion. I use to be a hardcore C&C fan since dune2, and the handmade RA2 tin statue is still standing on my desktop. But this product has disappointed me. It's really the attitide thing, which EA currently does not have. EA has to do much better than this for me to buy anything else from them ever again. And to those who are wondering whether to buy this game, I do suggest you check on more reviews on the web that analyze this game fairly.

hxposted - Mar, 01 2003 - 23:17
abc: same here, I really don't care if you like the game or not :) Simply if you don't like it, don't buy it and don't play it! I didn't find no one serious bug in the game (unlike other EA games) and interface is also pretty acceptable for me. But I understand some people can be disapointed especially those with slower PCs.

Erbozposted - Mar, 02 2003 - 00:50
It has nothing to do with how powerfull your PC is IMHO, todays games get reviewed toward the graphics, seems like releasing a 3D game nowadays reasures that the game gets a 70% at least, nomatter how BAD everything else is. I score it a fair 27%.

Somebodyposted - Mar, 02 2003 - 07:26
The idea is if you don't like it, then don't buy it or even play it. Why all of you guys have to be such stupid guys. You don't like it and you have to critize what people what to do. People do what they want. By the way every people has their own opinion in the game. hx gives 88, well that is his opinion about the game. If you think it is only 27 or something else well just give it for yourself. You guys don't have to be so radical and forcing people not to play or waste the money. You guys think that hx is stupid for giving 88 well now you guys force your own opinions that's the game is only worth 27 or something. Now I want to ask who is the stupid one?

Erbozposted - Mar, 02 2003 - 12:10
I'm definatelly not pinpointing hg or gameguru mania, I think they have one of the best reviews around, I'm just pointing at the trend that's going on, great 2D hardly score 60% by average, while buggy, unfinished 3D crap scores over 75%.

sowposted - Mar, 02 2003 - 13:58
It's all about objectivity when it comes to a review situation, which I've found NONE in this preview, hence I judge this review bad. That's all.

Somebodyposted - Mar, 02 2003 - 20:13
abc: You said about the objectivity huh? So how can you accuse about somebody being paid for this review. Are you being objective when you accused somebody get paid for a review? You should tell yourself more than critize people first. Think before you talk. Cause i don't find any objectivity either from the thing that you talk

Dinovicposted - Mar, 03 2003 - 12:18
I don't like the game at all. The atmosphere is really bad. They don' t even have a music theme like "The Hellmarch". I also hate it because it's 3d. The textures also suck bigtime! When i looked at the first screenshots of the game i thought it would be nice. I thought the water would look nice but it also sucks. Why does it have to be 3d ??? I hope next time they will make it in 2d and I also hope it has the atmosphere like in the other c&c series.

BasicInstinctposted - Mar, 03 2003 - 15:20
Dibovic, ya lets put it back to 2D, ya that's where it at for these games, MORON. Get your thumb out of your ass Dinovic and wake up. "Duh, I saw screenshots it looked good so I bought it, then I found out I suck, so now I hate it." The game rocks! the multiplayer rocks and the graphics are wicked and unlike First Person games, they actually included a world editor that works perfectly! All around excellent game.

I don't write review dude. And from hx's review, this game appeared to be perfect, but is it really perfect? There are whole lot of cons you can list about this game, did he do so? This fact alone is enough to make it a bad review.

sowposted - Mar, 04 2003 - 06:22
I like the news section here, just don't want to see the review section ruins it.

Somebodyposted - Mar, 04 2003 - 07:55
So abc, why don't you made your own review if you feel that your review is so objective? From some comments that I saw up there seemed like most of people like the game. You said about the fact huh? So why are there still a lot of people that play this game? So you mean yours are fact huh or is it only an arguement?

This game goes back to the classic feeling of the old school C&C, finally a fully balanced selection of units where n00bs which cry that the game sucks cant do tank rushes anymore, the game rocks and opens up a great array of tactics instead of resource hoarding and tank rushing.

sowposted - Mar, 04 2003 - 16:21
I'm not a professional webber and I haven't got all day. Pros or cons of a game come from comparison with others of the same category, in this case, namely WC3 by blizzard and AOM by MS. Graphic engine of C&C:GS is definately more advanced than WC3's, but worse than AOM's. A player with an AVERAGE PC can't run this game SMOOTHLY. Even one with higher end PC still experience the same problem. I myself am using P41.8 with 512DDR plus a GF4 Ti4200 128MB(you can call it higher end, can't you?), and the frame rate still reduces greatly when the units in game exceed a certain number. You don't see this kind of thing in AOM's engine. Comes to the control interface, it's far worse than WC3 and AOM, although C&C:GS is 2 seasons newer than those two. Especially in the hotkey and unit selection area. And I don't need to repeat the widely complained network problem do I? You can say comparing to the excellent modern real time tactic gaming experience, those cons are nothing. But is it true to everybody, especially those who are new to C&C series? what if those who concern the cons I've mentioned above alot saw the review here and thought these cons don't exist, and go buy the game? If this is a review posted in a C&C dedicated web site, or even EA sites, then I'll have nothing to say, however it is not. I think this concludes my previous posts.

Nah, I call it more...umm, 'entry level,' wouldn't you? werd.

Shit, Crap, Barf e.tposted - Mar, 05 2003 - 21:54
This game puts the word shit on a whole new level e.g. 1-day o' playin=21 mission in 3 campaigns. I wonder did EA ever stop to think they were makin' the CRAPPIEST 3d rts nowadays? Skirmish sucks even 50+ tanks, 20+ aircrafts etc.=new units means nothing to me. And where are all those good videos from good ol' school C&C series? If this 88% than we're goin' to play shitfrom EA Games every year... P.S. Oh, to add to al I've said before the EA support is the crappiest in all fuckin world. Even the Micrasoft is of no comparison to this CRAP.

Totally crap game. Watever happened to the good old CnC games with the in game movies? THis is total shit. No naval units, the units are terrible, AI is crap. This game deserves a 2/10.

Nice 3D graph...Still the same old f-----ng RTS s..t.Anyone !!!!! Give EA a better ideea...We want some new type of games...Something realy new.Not old classic polished RTS games....Warcraft,Red Alert,Generals....Just variations on the same theme....Wake up guys!Put yours minds in action.WE WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT !!!!!!

edselposted - Mar, 08 2003 - 20:29
I dont know about you guys! I've played Red alert 2 and other C&C RTS and I think this is the best so far. I even love this more than warcraft, coz theres no limit on the units. As long as you can pump the money, you can pump the wrecking crew!!!! Stunning audio, but they can work on the graphics. I had no problems whatsoever, maybe thats because I got a good system. 2.4 AMD, 512 pc2700, 128 Ti4200, 80 g HD. Unlike those who are complaining that the game sucks. Maybe you got a shitty system!!!! He! He! He!

This game happily runs on an AMD Athlon 1.4ghz + 512MB DDR memory + Geforce 2 Pro. It also runs fine on my 2700+ AMD + GeForce 4 TI + 1GB ddr...and so it should :) The system ratings are a little overated in my opinion.

I think the US+UK vs Iraqi war influenced my liking this game so much. I am not a fan of C&C, prefering Starcraft and Age of Whatever, but this particular version really took me. Any tips on finishing Level 7 of China? Those Scud showers are really wacking my arse and when I tried to take the war to their base.. I was swept away. Any tips, or links to them, would be much appreciated

Great game, too bad the AI really sucks... it far too easy even on brutal, they keep building on the same place... a shame

I don't really understand why most of the people commenting here feel the need to swear and do atrocious spelling instead of forming a valid, useful argument. "Yer U n00bs suck ass, and ur all shit and ea r shit y tha fuck u playing this game...you shits" etc etc. Agreed, Generals isn't as fun as Red Alert - with its boats, chronosphere and tesla coils, but isn't it great when all your special weapons all come into play at the same time? eg Dropping a fat load of bombs on the nice big army the enemy has just built by their war factory, then, perhaps, shutting down their power or radar, then cutting a line through their base defences with the particle cannon, before storming in with Mr. Burton, some snipers and trigger happy choppers? It might not be revolutionary, but boy does it work! And those of you who are saying that it looks crap, perhaps you are the new generation of console kiddy gamers who need to stop wanking over heartless visuals, and instead concentrate on a fun, hectic game.

this game crashes very regular with any system using the KT133a chipset and also with any of the hercules video cards (such as the 3D Prophet 4000 and 4500 series 64MB cards). the game does still have other problems but maybe with enough patches it will work for most systems

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF YOU CAN KEEP THE PARTICLE BEAM CANNON ON LONGER BY MESSING WITH THE INI FILE? IF THERE IS A WAY PLEASE TELL ME.

I EAT YOU!posted - Jun, 08 2003 - 05:26
first AOL is lame. Second your a loser cause you want to cheat. third your question is too vague which file exactly?.If you want a cheat go look for it if you don't find it then you COULD try and do it yourself get some skills learn assembly or C++ or some other language and investigate. you probabaly won't figure it out any time soon but its a start unless of course you got other interest then don't want a long campaign. anyway i have no clue what your talking about sorry.lol

The game plays well and guys...it is only a game. What is garbage, is all of you brain dead ass-holes online swearing and abusing each other. Play a game and enjoy it! then take a deep breath, step outside away from the screen and chill the f@#K out. 9/10. Great game (and yes its only a GAME)

great game to play over the net...

Disgustedposted - Jul, 24 2003 - 14:50
ok after having the game for well over 4 months ive decided to say a lil something about it.1st its addictive,its been a while since i played a game that kept me coming back for more,But,The game is still yet buggy today,lets face it EA did not follow through on this game properly and released it to soon.The proof is in the pudding look at what patch were upto now (v1.06)and yet the game has already managed to rear more problems.the patch for the most part is fairly OK.But EA dont advertise what yer patch can do when it doesnt,were all still seeing DCers that cause a winning team to get a DC now.Now were looking at a exp soon,my god i would think fixing the game woul;d be priority over a exp but maybe im wrong,im not personally buying it till the game is sound.Like some said i dont forsee this game to be fixed till patch v5.06 is released.Lets not also forget that EA was responsible for canning one of the most ultimate fighting games that never made it to console or will ever for that matter "ThrillKill".I paid 50 bux for CNCG and for the most part its a good game but buggy as hell.Lets not forget either we`re the "boss" thats right we`re the boss we buy the games and we pay theyre salary so lets all get on th horn and tell EA to either get this game lined out ASAP or possibly face a million gamers calling the BBB and filing complaints.Beleive me it works

ey guys just want to ask if this game will run on my pc,i have the following specification for my pc, pentium III 600EB, 320mb SDRAM, geforce2 mx400 64mb vido card

umm did you read the review? well the requirements are posted there!! plus you can always just check out the games website or just search google. IS THIS SO HARD YOU CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF?. DO YOU HAVE TROUBLE USING A COMPUTER?

Rogi Pingposted - Nov, 17 2003 - 06:11
Well. What is left to say. Game is great. Exept for a rather slow LAN performance on XP2000+ KT400 256 MB DDRAM+GF4MX440. Is this normal ? I'd expect far better games to work nicely with this kind of computer (it's cheap, but WArcraft 3 for example run Great even with Intel P3-Celeron 733 Mhz on HOME LAN) I can't help but conclude that their network code is very bad. Perhaps they lack "dedicated server" support. but then, HL - CS Work nice for up to 20 players without using dedicated servers. What is so demanding in this game that it can't run decently on a XP2000+ class computer (On lan, singleplayer works perfectly even on slower computers) Is my lan so bad ? Are there some tricks ? Thx.

Hi i was play online Until yesterday but now when i LOGIn it say you're serial number Invalid try another what should i do who had a serial number that i can play online it is very bad

Danielposted - Jan, 26 2004 - 09:08
Someone recently asked about how to change the serial number of C&C Generals. Thier question was then answered in an assumptive & disreguarding fashion. Well I've got the same question & I'm not going to allow it to be misinterpreted as an excuse to hack or perform any form of piracy to the game. I cannot play LAN games with the same copy of this game. What's up with that EA, or whomever may know that will actually have a useful responce? It say this serial number is already in use. You don't seriously expect for customers to go & buy multiple copies of any given game so that they can share it & enjoy LAN games within thier OWN HOUSHOLD, Do you? What gives? & if tricking the game into think you've bought another copy because you "hack" the registry code isn't the way, then how? Just tell me that one game is plenty for the abliity to utilize ALL of it's features within any household with a network & I don't have to purchase another copy. Then, I'll agree that altering the game is something to be shunned. Thankyou in advance for your time & consideration of my question.

its a decent game, very addicting even if the graphics could have been better, but i do admit it has some funny resource problems, and glitches... i got up to mission 7 and it crashed, installed the path.. sure it looked a lil better but still crashes... i am pretty sure the rest of the game is as good as what ive played so far.. but it could have been alot better .. id give it a 9/10 for likability.. but im sure in time thatll dwindel ... give a 4 overall-ish..
