Played this game for years truely timeless. About to buy it for a friend, so we can hit it together!

  An old but brilliant game

Had this for years and still a decent game, especially the value of the deluxe edition that gives you the zero hour expansion pack.
MP is definitely fun, however last time i played, players could use the scud laucncher cheat... which obviously ruined the whole game!!
however even though its old, it still probably beats the new c&c games hands down and no questions asked!!!

  Conquers all others!

My son and I love this game! It beats all newcommers hands down. The gameplay and graphics are fantastic. If you're into battle strategy then this is for you for sure. Enough said! Buy it or lose out! A bargain.

  RTS - Very Fast Paced.

I'v played this game since release late 2003. (Very well known online!) this game is the best. All other rts are usually slow paced (well 5min till fights) but this... This u can end most 1v1 fights in pro games in under 3min! Losing 1 supply stash is like losing a army. Very very heated battles over supplys and espically oils on twlight flame (defcon 6 with the patch on 2005) i shun ea for there servers very poor and there is no online support at all. I'v never needed support really most online "pros" (commander in cheifs) thats still play are long time players and will usually help... Most of the "kids" that like new and shiney games that do fail.. (Sorry but generals+zh are easily better then tiberium wars and ra3).

This cnc is the best!

  How to get it to work on Vista

| | See all Dreaming11's reviews (1)

I have had this game for years, absolute classic and beats most newer RTSs in terms of strategy - but it is pretty buggy and EA dropped the ball on support. As for getting it to work in Vista - this is down to lazy programming by EA which meant that when the location of the my documents folder changed in Vista, it no longer created the necessary files. It is easy enough to do this yourself though:

Go to your "User\Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data" folder and create a new text file. Copy the following text into it:

AntiAliasing = 6
BuildingOcclusion = yes
DrawScrollAnchor =
DynamicLOD = yes
ExtraAnimations = yes
GameSpyIPAddress = 0.0.0.0
Gamma = 50
HeatEffects = yes
IPAddress = 0.0.0.0
IdealStaticGameLOD = High
LanguageFilter = true
MaxParticleCount = 5000
MoveScrollAnchor =
MusicVolume = 55
Resolution = 800 600
Retaliation = yes
SFX3DVolume = 79
SFXVolume = 71
ScrollFactor = 50
SendDelay = no
ShowSoftWaterEdge = yes
ShowTrees = yes
StaticGameLOD = Low
TextureReduction = 0
UseAlternateMouse = no
UseCloudMap = yes
UseDoubleClickAttackMove = no
UseLightMap = yes
UseShadowDecals = yes
UseShadowVolumes = yes
VoiceVolume = 70

Then save the file but save it as options.ini.

It should work then :-)

  Fantastic... if you're not running Vista

| | See all petehix's reviews (4)

I do love this game. I owned it before and it was absolutely amazing. But then my pc crashed and the time came to reinstall the game and... oh dear. I had lost my CD key. A few years passed and I found myself with some money and bought myself a new laptop and I found myself craving for Generals (remember, this was a few years after I had played it - I still love the game). I bought a copy on play.com [cheapest I could find] however when I installed the game and tried to run it, it wasn't working D:
Has anyone with Vista managed to run Generals? Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
Once again though - the game is absolutely amazing.

  Brillant

Best C&C there is got to the highest rank online :D but its not for people who just like shooters its more like a game of animated chess with nukes planes and terrorists.

  Pretty God Damn Good

Great game with awesome gameplay excellent missions as well i also love the fact of getting upgrades and new stuff like airstrikes the only down factor is the graphics which are kind of crap but its made in 2003 so what do you excpect still quality game! A definate must buy!
