Comment: Command & Conquer Generals is developed by “EA game sports”. The best strategy games that i ever played. U start with command center and one building unit, your goal is to defeat all enemies on map. In Command & Conquer there are many games but i will be focused on Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour, because that is my favorite strategy game
In this game there are 3 nations for playing; USA, China and GLA (Global Liberation Army) and each of them have special weapons and tactics. In Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour, every nation gets 3 more Generals with improved units. Every nation has their own unique super weapon and special infantry units so called Heroes of nation. By playing game you are getting higher rank and unlocking stronger firepower. Units and building can be upgraded in specific buildings. Every type of building produces one type of units. On barracks they are infantry, on War factory tanks and on Airfields plains. To create building or units i need income, main and only vault in this game is dollar. U can get more dollars by building supply center. Every nation have 1 more addition way of income. U can also capture additional neutral buildings for additional firepower or income.
Unites are divided by ability to shoot infantry, tanks, airplanes and damage from long range and stealth detection units, every nation have different units and all units are getting ranks during combat
USA: USA have really strong air force, base defense and it have larges promotion power of all. With each star for promotion you get better units or stronger bombs (stealth plains, unit drop, snipers …). Strongest unit that u can get on rank 5 is fuel bomb that can be upgraded to MOBA (plain that drop high explosive bomb with huge dmg). Their super weapon is Particle cannon, strong laser beam that is fired for several seconds, fries all on its way and can be controlled. Colonel Burton (popular called Rambo) is their special unit, he is stealthy, can climb over hills, have minigun and can destroy buildings or units by planting explosives.
Construction Dozer is used to create or repair buildings. Additional money income is get by Supply Drop Zones.
Strategy center is main building for upgrading units, it also have 3 stance, bombardment: all units get more firepower, search and destroy: all units have extra range and hold the line: all units gets extra defense. Base defense are Patriot Missile Turrets and Fire base (long range cannon that can hold up to 4 ppl)
USA use Cold fusion reactor to supply army with electricity which can be upgraded.
USA have in addition to basic army have 3 more. USA Air force, USA Super weapon and USA Laser.
USA Air force: Their tactic for destroying enemies is advanced aircrafts. They have strongest plains and gunships in game. By building Strategy center u get access to carpet bomber strong plain that drops line of bombs. Advantages for this army are “Carpet bomber”, airplanes “Aurora” and “King Rapidor”. All plains cost less and have best upgrade for airplanes and gunships , but this general have lack of tanks in his war factory.
USA Super weapon: This army have rly strong defense and her tactic to destroy enemies are super weapons. Base defense Patriot Missile Turrets are equipped with EMP missile that temporary disable vehicles, also can destroy all aircrafts with one shot. Particle Cannon cost less and it does more damage and last a bit longer. Advantages for this army are Strong defense, high power with super weapon, Aurora bomber have mini fuel bomb for this damage and Cold fusion reactor produce much more power when upgraded. But this Army also have lack of tanks, but frankly they don’t need it .
USA Laser: This Army use Lasers as main offensive or defensive tool. Patriot missile turrets are replaced with high damage Laser turret. Tanks also don’t use laser for combat. Advantages: Strongest defense in game that can shoot infantry tanks and airplanes. Particle canon do more dmg, Cold fusion reactor provide more power, laser defense on plain and tanks, bad thing that u tanks runs on power so u need a lots of rectors.
CHINA: China use large number of units to defeat enemies. Nuclear Power Plant is used to provide electricity which can be overload for more power but it will get damage overtime. China’s super weapon is Nuclear Missile, large bomb that do massive damage and leave radiation on place of impact for some time. Best promotion on rank 5 are EPM bomber and artillery. China’s special unit is Black Lotus, she doesn’t have any damaging tools but she can hack into enemy building and units to disable it, or to steal money from enemy, she is also stealted. Main building for upgrades are propaganda center, there is also Propaganda center who can be used to defend hacker who are addition money income for this army. Defend structures are Gatling Cannon for infantry and protective bunker that can hold tank infantry units for defense. This unit also use dozers to construct base.
China have in addition to basic army have 3 more. China Tank, China Infantry and China nuke.
China tank: This army has strongest tanks in game and that it use to defeat enemies.
Advantages: rly strong tank Overlord, tanks cost less and they are stronger and produce faster
China Infantry: This army use infantry as advantage. All infantry is lower cost, there are stronger and unlike rest all can shoot ground and airborne units.
Advantage: High amount of damage from infantry, stronger bunkers, infantry can shoot plains, Black Lotus is starting with rank 1 and she can hack faster, hackers provide more money.
China Nuke: This army using nuclear power to bring destruction.
Advantage: Nuclear rectors give more power, tank leave nucler radiation and nuke canons does more damage, Nuclear missile does more damage and cost less, airplanes drops mini nukes instead missiles.
GLA (Global Liberation Army) in this game they are present as terorists, they main tools for destruction are surprise attacks, toxic weapons, stealth explosives, bombs and tunnels that can transfer units across map in a seconds. Their super weapon is S.C.U.D storm, large amount of missiles that on impact leave toxic leftovers. Workers are use to build base. This army don’t use electivity cause they don’t need power supply. Best tool from general promotion is Sneak attack (tunnel that can be placed anyhwere on map), Rebel ambush and Anthrax bomb. Jarmen Kell is GLA’s special units, stealth snipers that can shoot on enemy vehicle driver and some of infantry units can capture it as own. Cash bounty is additional way for provide money. Defensive structure are Stinger Site and Network tunnel.
GLA have 3 additional armies: GLA Toxin, GLA Demolition and GLA Stealth
GLA Toxin: Use anthrax and poisons as main dmg to defeat enemies.
Advantages: Toxic bombs and any units with toxin are stronger S.C.U.D storm leave stronger toxin that last longer after impact, network tunnel become toxin tunnel that fire toxic instead of bullets. Rebel are also shooting toxin not bullets, they don’t have stealth ability
GLA demolition: Use high explosives and bombs to defeat enemies.
Advantage: Units and bombs does more damage, S.C.U.D storm also do a lot more of damage,
Jarmen Kell can place bombs, every units can suicide and deal damage on death
GLA stealth: Use invisibility as advantage to defeat enemies.
Advantage: U can make every units stealth, u can hide entire base from sight, surprise attacks, u can disable enemy building and steal vehicles. My favorite army.
This game has several modes. Skirmish, when u fights with or VS friends or computer, missions for every Nation and Challenge, where u go and fight VS fully builded base enemies and try to defeat them
Graphic is solid but whoever wana good strategy game i recommended this one
This is a sick, stretagy type of game. It’s kind of complicated though… The graphics is bearable too. The idea of the game is sick. I like how there’s many different types of weaponry. nice game!
Great RTS game even tho I prefered Red Alert a bit more 🙂
Still one of the games you should try out.
Very interesting RTS video game,it has solid graphic I recommend it everybody
Cool RTS game ,interesting gameplay ,try it
This is like the powecore of all war RTS games. It is very iconic that many copies of it were sold worldwide. It offers many features which are highly enjoyable and fun. From story lines to real time battles. Skirmish and many more. The graphics. Even tho some titles have been outdated now, it still gives satisfaction to players which is positive. Try it!
Great RTS war game the storyline of this game and its graphics are awesome its one of the great features the game can offer 4/5
C&C were one of the earliest that made the RTS franchise boom, together with Warcraft and Starcraft, Red alert were one of the first few RTS ive played. This game really hold up. Tiberian sun has made its way to FPS as well due to how much the story is well written. I played Generals on and off cause it tends to be easily beaten duecto imbalance exploits.
C&C: The First Decade is pretty good. It’s pretty much a compilation of C&C games from 1995 to 2003, so you’re going to have plenty of gameplay which is really nice; just know that it doesn’t include later C&C games like C&C3: Tiberium Wars to C&C4: Tiberian Twilight. Personally, I think C&C: The Ultimate Collection is a better value, because that one includes 17 games (far more than C&C: The First Decade), all for the price of just $20 which isn’t so bad. So if you had to choose a C&C game, I’d seriously skip C&C: The First Decade and just get C&C: The Ultimate Collection.
Overall, I’d rate C&C: The First Decade a 4.5/5; I’d probably rate it higher, if C&C: The Ultimate Collection didn’t exist.
