    Anyone else play this AWESOME game?

    It's a lot of fun online, much more simple than RoN (which is also cool, just a bit more complex, particularly multiplayer)

    So anyone else out there like Generals?!

    It's a long time since I played it last time, but it's a good game. I got the expansion Zero Hour as well.

    It's cool how the factions and their units differ from each other, in most other games they only differ by skin and perhaps some single units.

    On ZH, I completed the GLA and US campaign but got stuck on the 3rd level of the Chinese campaign. Pretty hard.

    I tried online as well, but I simply wasn't good enough. RTS against human players can be very stressful! The skill matching didn't always work very well, and ppl would quit if their initial rush failed (hmm, should have tried 4vs4).

    What's RoN?.

    Yeah, I used to play C&C: Generals. Had to uninstall it though.

    Played it, but I still prefer Tiberian Sun (my favourite C&C title thus far).

    I hated it. It did not live up to the C&C pedigree, at all. They took so many things that made past games so great and removed it. pretty much all its going for it is the units exploding and flying and that does not make the game good, just pretty.

    Generals is worst in the C&C series. Actually it doesn't even belong to the series, they just named it C&C to attract more buyers.
