It's come a long way since I first started playing it ... and whilst I'd love to give it a try, I expect I'd suddenly start losing whole chunks of a week and never get any work done.
yup, got all the command & conquer games. A few 1 or 2 i didn't like but red alert being one of my favs and some others.
I've played every C&C game and expansion ever made except for the C&C Generals series. Can't say I care much for the recent games though, they're too much the usual EA games.
Same, ive lost hours days weeks in a row on some of the older games.
Everything from the original command and conquer > generals zero hour was pure gold because it was all made by Westwood studios. So CNC, Tibsun (I still think the campeign in this game has yet to be rivaled by any other RTS since), Firestorm, Red Alert + Expacs, Red Alert 2 + YR (Great fun) Generals + ZH.
CnC 3 was a bit of a flop, though KW made the multiplayer fun again.
RA3 and CNC4.... well... I just pretend those games never happened.
God damnit, just thinking about tibsun... gonna have to re-play it now!
I loved the original Generals and played it for years after it was released. I would scour the fan sites for good fan maps and play them over and over. C&C 3 was good too - genuinely difficult.
I was very disappointed with Red Alert 3 - thought it was stupid and not fun at all.
Based on reviews of the way they changed the game play in C&C 4, I didn't even bother buying it - I gave up on the franchise.
If the can make Generals play like the original did, I'd be very interested in trying it.
Like most of us I think!
That's not entirely fair, RA3 was pretty good and had some really good moments, plus multiplayer was quite fun. The expansion was also pretty good in its own right. C&C4 however was brutal. I was one of the beta testers of that game, and was on the hidden beta forum for it. There was soooo much feedback (mostly negative), and EA more or less said "sorry, we're all ready too far into the development, we're not really gonna change much." and that was that. One of the worst games I've ever seen.. sadly.
All the feedback so far... seems to imply it does!
I did really love Tiberian sun. Invisible units. The fire wall! Ooooh the fire wall. Sure, it had quite some "hey where did my harvester go" moments when you activated, but blocking a super weapon just before it hits you was priceless.
Or abusing infinate firewall by turning it on, and then selling powerplants to put the generator "on hold" forever or using cliffs to bounce discs throwers discs halfway across the map
Still playing C&C Generals - Zero Hour, because Tiberian is nowhere to play on my good old laptop.
Last time I played any of the C&C was on a PC (and it was a blazing 486DX33). Been meaning to try the console versions, just never got around to it.
Heh, my first experience was playing it on a 386-SX40 (Cyrix, not sure Intel themselves ever pushed out a 40MHz 386 chip), ran surprisingly well actually.
"Is it done... Yuri?"
"No Comrade Premiere, It has only begun"
high speed, low drag
China will grow larger.
Just went out and bought every goddamn C&C title the local store had available.
