    5-0 out of 5 stars The comand and conquer collection
    The Command and Conquer collection is a great game with Red Alert 2 and the expansion pack Yuri's Revenge.plus there are lots of other games .There are five games in all.Command and Conquer, Tiberian SunTiberian Sun Firestorm, Renegade, Red alert 2 and the expantion pack Yuri's revenge.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pure and simple
    Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 and the expansion pack, Yuri's Revenge is more than enough to justify a $20 price tag - that in itself is a bargain, with more than enough to keep any sane person entertained for hours on end, especially with the floods of modifications availabale for the game. To get three additional games thrown in just says it all. Pure and Simple

    5-0 out of 5 stars THESE GAMES ARE AWESOME!!!!
    In Tiberian Sun You can do really cool things like defend a UFO and in Tiberian Sun firestorm you can get awesome units like cyborg reapers in renegade is a first and third person shooter and red alert 2 you can use awesome stuff in yuris revenge you can mind control massively!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful endeed but...
    Anyone who bought and enjoyed the original CandC: Generals won't go far wrong doing the same again with this expansion. Your money buys you another 15 single player missions all complete with new units, a `challenge' scenario where you can choose a general that suits your style of play and put him up against 8 others as well as the usual skirmish and multiplay modes.

    The graphics and sound are excellent, as could be expected from a developer of this pedigree, with the cut scenes giving a truly professional feel to the whole experience. Explosions and animation are superb, I particularly like the way bodies fly through the air as a bunker is blown up, and the screams of anguish as troopers die a painful chemical death never fails to bring a smile (I know, I'm a sick git).

    Gameplay is fluid, albeit a little slow in places, while it should also be noted that he who rules the skies, wins (99 times out of 100 anyway). The GLA missions are slightly harder to my mind as there is no air power at all, but more enjoyable due to the downright nastiness of the terrorists. Winning a skirmish against the USA with all the superior weaponry is particularly satisfying and being able to camouflage your units and buildings making them very hard to spot gives an edge that is hard to beat - lets face it, its damn hard to destroy something if you can't see it. Chinese forces are once again numerous and it seems to me that my favourite Overlord is now a tad more vulnerable to rocket toting troops, but the vision of ½ a dozen or so of these beasts lumbering through an enemy base camp, supported by a couple of the most excellent Dragons to clear those troublesome buildings is one I can't get enough of. As always, the USA tend to dominate, and the initial scenario is great for refreshing the memory banks and getting back to grips with all the controls.

    The interface is, as usual, totally user friendly and it doesn't take much to get everything quickly set up to your liking. My son was not much impressed by the screen that appears after the loading scenes - unless a key is pressed or the mouse moved, it looks like the program has locked up and he sat there for ages before he realised this (heheheh - kids of today!!)

    My only real gripe with this is that, once again, the game doesn't deliver what appears to be promised on the box. I was hoping and praying for the return of the naval units but no such luck - you get a carrier (USA) but can't actually do anything with it apart from launch air missions - most disappointing. Overall though, this certainly ranks as one of the better expansions and does improve the original - if only slightly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for Generals Fans.
    Once you play Generals with this expansion you'll never play plain ol' gnerals again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Extends playlife of Generals to infinity...
    ...that may be something of an exgaggeration, but this statement isn't: If you loved Generals and haven't played Zero Hour, you have cause for celebration.At the time of this writing, Zero Hour has been out roughly 1.5 years (games live in "dog years" compared to other media), and as far as Real Time Strategy Games go, I put this at, or very near the top of my list, ahead of most every contemporary RTS.

    Why?

    To many reasons to list, but basically because Zero Hour completely refreshes Generals.If you played Generals like me (a psycho, social-life-debilitating amount), you pretty much had the game down; you knew build order, offense, counters, etc.Zero Hour completely reshuffles the deck by introducing a whole host of brand new units, as well as the ability to play as a General of a certain skill set that gives him advantages (like air/ground/nuclear, etc).

    Can you say "C130 Gunship", "Heavy Chinese attack Heli", "Suicide Motorcylist"...when my buddy sent in a huge plane that dropped a bunch of leaflets on my troops to urge them not to fight, I almost came apart with laughter.Good times.

    In addition to the General abilities, new maps, and new units, the games graphics have noticably improved.

    I couldn't recommend this higher.For RTS fans that haven't checked Zero Hour out yet, don't hesitate to buy this Expansion Pack, this game's got a lot of life in it yet.

    Enjoy,

    Command and Conquer Generals, Zero Hour

    This game is the game of the century. In Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour expansion pack you can be three teams, USA, China and the Global Liberation Army (GLA). Play to build your base and your armies from soldiers, vehicles, tanks, and aircraft. If you have enough money than you are able to buy superweapons like the Particle cannon, Nuclear silo and the SCUD storm. You can also be nine generals who have advantages and disadvantages. You can play missions with a goal or just fight the other team. You can also play other players online in the multiplayer games.

    What I don't like about the game is that some times it gets very difficult even if it's on easy. What I like about the game is that the challenges are fun to do and the generals with special abilities are cool. I think that the music is very nice for each team. The game has vehicles from real life like the Padalen tank, Raptor air plane and the SCUD launcher. I would suggest this game to many people and I would give this game a9/10.




    5-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER
    HI I AM A FEW OF THE ONES WHO THINK THIS GAME ROCKS AND IT IS.

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, Yuri's Revenge sets a new standard for expansion packs in both what it adds to the game and how it changes the way you play it. The world is once again on the brink of apocalypse. Yuri, the brilliant and powerful psychic warrior, has rebelled against his former Soviet masters and launched his own scheme to control the world. He's armed with cruel technologies, exotic weapons, and mind-controlling devices that have enslaved entire cities.

    In single play, gamers can choose to command the Allies and crush this new threat to freedom, or choose to lead the Soviets and punish this would-be usurper of the Soviet global vision. In multiplayer mode, you'll command Yuri's devastating army using devious weapons based on forbidden technologies: psychic thought, genetics, and cloning. See your brutes flip over tanks with their bare hands, unleash your dominator and control scores of enemy troops, or use a virus to infect opposing forces foolish enough to resist you. With 10 new cooperative missions, gamers have more interesting options than just fighting head-to-head. An improved multiplayer and tournament interface will make it easier than ever to find opponents and allies.

    Both the Allied and Soviet armies get new, powerful weapons. The Allies boast aRobot Control Center and Chrono Prison. Amongst the new Soviet weaponry is the Siege Chopper and Boris, a machine-gun-toting commando that can call down laser-guided bombing strikes. The high-quality in-game movies tell the story of Yuri and his insidious plot. The popular characters of Red Alert 2, such as Tanya and Romanov, are back to wage war in cities around the world, including London, Cairo, and San Francisco. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars great
    this game has kept me busy on my free time for 4 years and trust me this is a great game. here's how the storyline goes- Premier Romanov remembers a war from his childhood, Allied tanks rolling across the streets and soldiers marching through the city. because of this he has forever hated America, leader of the Allies. now he's an aristocrat and has become the king or something of russia under the image of a peaceful man. but he's really building bases across the world in a crazy plan to crush the Americans. he and his comrade Yuri, a person with the ability to control people's minds waged war against america with tactics such as using yuri's students to mind control cows loaded with explosives to american forts and using the navy to transport tanks as they overrun New York. in the end the allies won but yuri has escaped. during the War between the Allies and Soviets and created his own army and now's trying to dominate the earth with his new weapon the psychic dominator- attempting mind controlling everyone in the world. the allies' goal is to destroy yuri to save the world and the soviets' goal is to get revenge on yuri for betraying them. the campaign is extremely difficult compared to the original one's. there's a whole new army avaliable on skirmish and new units and fixes to glitches have been created.

    2-0 out of 5 stars 50% Good
    All I have to say is when you order the "pack" make sure they send ALL the serial codes to load the game!Spent the money got the games but received only one serial code for the pack (Red Alert 2).Yuri's revenge required a separate code which was not included, so now I can enjoy half the game and use the Yuri's Revenge disk as a coaster or maybe a colorful mini-frisbee!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable
    This game was not exactly what I was expecting, but for only $20, I was NOT disappointed.When it was released, I really thought about buying it, I'm glad I waited for the $40 - $50 price tag to come down... normally, I like to be the first one on the block to play one of the ones I have played in the past.

    Generals is a variation on the original Command & Conquer series and is not another updated version with a new name and additional units and plays, for the most part, without any sort of a similar "storyline".The RTS aspect is solid, the ai is pretty good, and the player interface is adequate (but took a little getting used to) - it's available at a fair price and worth purchasing.If I had bought this game at the original price I doubt I would have had any further interest in buying any of the the future versions of C&C, but for another $20 I will probably pick up the Zero Hour expansion pack.... something that should probably have been a free update to those that paid the initial price.

    The only complaint I would make is the "view" ... it's the type of view that drops to more of a "ground level" perspective like in Empire Earth or Total War:Rome rather than a true zoom/unzoom available in a Age of Empires/ Rise of Nations or even SimCity...Generals was quite enjoyable even though that feature is not my preference.

    Other than that, I thought it was fun and challenging and well worth the $20 price tag.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome!!
    This game rocks!! I love Red Alert and Red Alert II, but this game is 20 times better! It's real time strategy about wars that are similar to the wars we are facing across seas. I highly recomend this game, and if u have spare money, get the expansion pack zero:hour, which expands your battle options. But overall, this game is the best game C&C has come up with!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars A big dissapointment
    Buying this game when it came out was a mistake i think to this day.C and C previous titles were ones to marvel at, this one is one to chuck in a garbage can.The missions are somewhat amusing and the terran is ok, but the subject of the game that really mad me, dare i say, cry, was the game's shortness and terrible unit graphics.In Generals, you play in 3 campaigns, terroist, chinesse, and AMERICAN, however, with only ten missions, +or-, you can get through the game, quite quickly.Also, being in 3D, i expected some quality of the game sprites, or on ground units, however, they dissapointed me greatly.With its extreme shortness, lack of modes, and basically, i came to conclude that this game, fell far short of reaching the shrine of C and C games ...

    Amazon.com Review

    Sticking firm to the old "if it ain't broke" philosophy, WestwoodStudios conjures up memories of the original Command & Conquer gameswith Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2. The game is set just a few yearsafter the events of the original C&C: Red Alert, and opens with asurprise Soviet invasion of the U.S. mainland. Playing as the startledAmericans, you must cobble togethera resistance and beat the invaders back into the sea. Playing as the Soviets,you must quickly establishcontrol of your new domain, wiping out all opposition you meet.

    Red Alert 2 is very similar to the original Red Alert, withsome visual enhancements andgameplay improvements brought in from the recent Command & Conquer:Tiberian Sun game.You still lead a small group of infantry and armored units in most missionsand you still have to assemble abase of operations in order to accomplish just about anything. This timearound, however, you'll have aslew of new units to build and command in the field--most of which are prettyslick. The American PrismTank, for example, can take out numerous enemy units with a single, branchingattack. On the Soviet side,Tesla Troopers and Psychics help make ground troops a formidable asset.

    Another nice addition to the game is the ability to garrison troops insidebuildings. Because much of thefighting is on city streets, it helps to give your troops some cover fromtime to time. Also, there are anumber of special buildings that provide unique advantages once occupied byengineer units. The airportallows you to call in air strikes, for example, while oil derricks provide aresource boost for your warmachine.

    Multiplayer support is still the calling card of this series, and fans ofpast C&C games will not bedisappointed by Red Alert 2's multiplayer options. The basicfree-for-all mode that the originalRed Alert made famous is still intact, but the alternative multiplayermodes are the real treat. InUnholy Alliance, players get access to both American and Soviet tech trees,while the naval war variantstarts each player off on a small island. In addition, the game includesspecial cooperative campaigns.

    There's no denying Red Alert 2's charm, despite the lack of a funky3-D engine and the game'sreliance on ultracheeseball video cut scenes to tell the story (Kari Wuhreror no Kari Wuhrer). For fast- paced, real-time strategy action that focuses on quick, intense firefights onAmerican soil, no other gameholds a candle to C&C: Red Alert 2. --Michael Ryan

    Pros:

    • More frenetic real-time strategy in the C&C universe
    • Tons of new units and capabilities on both sides of the conflict
    • Cool U.S. settings for most missions
    • Great array of multiplayer modes
    Cons:
    • Not exactly a technical leap forward
    • Video cut scenes are cheesy beyond description

    5-0 out of 5 stars good game (when lots a casulteis)
    played this game online against a freind i was an allied team it was fun if you pick a good map were you can have land and sea battles on it think i broke the record for most units lost(it was a 3 hour game) 5332 for both sides allies are way better than soveits because i only lost 1032 units!!!!!! (most were tanks cause the soveits have stronger armored units) naval battle is also fun cause you have to have naval superioety i had 32 destroyers 9 aegis cruisers and 11 air craft cariors a good game but AI is pridictable (ecuse all my miss spellings)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Red Alert 2
    This is the awsomest game! It is so much fun. It is easy to figure out, there are a lot of game options so you can set the game to your liking. The graphics are satisfactory, and if you have the right computer, the graphics will be very smooth. this game is good for beginners, or if you want a challenge, you can make it a lot harder. GREAT GAME!

    5-0 out of 5 stars exellent game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This game is a really exellent command & conquer
    game. it is worth it; must to be bought!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Red Alert 2 Could not possible be better
    Lets face it, in this world we see before our eyes, (the computer screen) the ongoing war will indeed go on between soviet and Allies, I would be surprised if; a few years from 2005 a red alert three would be released. Red Alert 2 is the perfect sequal to Red Alert, more guns, bigger bullets and a huge range of units and structures to choose from. Compare the allies to the new allies, again lets face it, in RA they were totally appalling, completely useless, they had poor defence ie: Anti tank turrets that were feeble against anything - even tanks. The Pill Box, which I gRANT you did chop up infantry nice and clean, but compare to the soviet flame tower, that thing could fry an entire army of soliders in one puff! The Soviets had Mammoth tanks, Heavy tanks, MAD tanks, tesla tanks, V2 rockets. Wereas the allies lord help them had what, light and medium tanks, artilery trucks (A kind of one-shot-dead sort of thing) rangers, and a chrono tank. thats - about -it. Now look...

    Emerging from the ashes of close and some how, someway a victory the allies had a somewhat growth in there arsenal light tanks probable tossed in the waste basket and medium tanks being replaced with GRIZZLY TANKS, artillery replaced with PRISM TANKS, mwah ha ha. And of course the Weather control device. I personnaly think that the WCD came from the chrono clouds generated in the first game when you used the Chronosphere to much, its quite a possibility, the of course the chronosphere itself got upgraded alot, infantry in RA2 for the allies is enourmously better than the soviet, noe allies have dogs as well (Like they should have done in the first place.

    RA2 skirmishes are to easy and predictable, even now playing against brutal enemy is generally easy, the only thing that makes a skirmish on RA2 exiting is if 4 odd nuclear warheads are smilling at you war factory with a kind of sinister grin. Incedentally A1 do build superweapons of all availiable. Unfortunatly the game creators havemade it so all computer teams, regardless of contry, construct the bases in more or less the same way, which is bleedin' boring. In RA you were at least given one heck of a challenge! Even on easy all teams fought one another (including you) sent masses and masses of tanks and men to your base, were talking here full scale attacks and they never quit they threw everything at you until they were completely whiped of the map. Ok they never built specially advanced technology but I don't think they needed to since they proove that braun is better than brain if you know what i mean. Thats the only downside to RA2. The rest...

    Missions are far, far more exiting and interesting since the terrain for one thing is great, and well designed. In cities its not just a matter of blowing some base up its all about the capturing, infiltrating, rescuring, beating the clock, invading and well, blowing stuff up. My personal favourite mission is the first and last of both teams.

    Naval war has also taking a major role in the waging canflict. Soviets now have a majority of ships including dreadnoughts, sea scorpions (naff) and of course transports that look like transporters not that werid thing from the first game. Allies have the bloomin mavalouse Aegis Cruiser, generally unbeatable S.T.A defence. and air craft carriers.

    To sum up only skirmishes let down RA2 the rest is excellent and avengfull, also, another good thing is that ever country has a special different unit. *****

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best ever!
    If you are a fan of any strategy or war games i would recomend Command & Conquer Red Alert 2. From Americans to the Russians theirs superweapons and super detailed battlefeilds. You can play as the soviets and allied forces. I think this is the bes tcomputer game of the year.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game
    This is an extremly good collection of games. I was having trouble locating most of these games and expansions in stores but this puts all of them into one. This collection has well over 100 missions. Some of you might have seen the graphics of the origional command and conquer before your computer became too good to run it. This includes Command and Conquer gold! It is the same as the origional except for two reasons. The graphics are much much better and it works with higher OS's such as Windows 95,98, and ME. This is an extreamly good package for a good price. Definatly worth getting.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This game package rocks!!
    This game package is the coolest because if you buy these items seperatly you would come out to be paying $75.00- $90.00.It may not have good graphics ether but you get cooler wepons , missions, and solos.Plus if you think it might have good graphics, in a scence you're right!! But don't get your hopes up to much because it wont be as graphical as any Playstation games or something.But trust me.It's an awsome deal!!!

    2-0 out of 5 stars What a waste of money
    This game is a waste of money, sure you get a lot of stuff but thats not the point. I bought this game thinking the graphics were good and there not, everything is small and not very detailed. The game runs slow and sometimes it freezes. I gave it 2 stars because it did come with a lot of stuffand if you are an true blue C&C fan then you can look past everything.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Command and Conquer: The Works!
    This is a great package deal!If you like strategy games, this will blow you away.You get two full games, 3 expansion paks, 115 solo missions, and over 230 multiplayer maps!Plus you can create your own Red Alert mapswith the included editor.That is a GREAT deal.More specifically youget:

    Command and Conquer: Gold, Command and Conquer: Covert Ops*, Commandand Conquer: Red Alert, Command and Conquer: Counterstrike*, Command andConquer: The Aftermath*

    * Expansion Pack including levels, missions, andunits.

    What do you get when you mix Risk with pure action?Command and Conquer!C&C revolutionized the Real Time Strategy world when it debuted in 1995.Later Red Alert came packing even more heat.Now get all of theC&C series in one single pack for a great deal!Get two complete gameswith three expansion packs.If you love this, you will really loveC&C: Tiberium Sun. ...

    I bought The Arsenal pack for 10 bucks.I loved playing the red alert games and i always loved the original.But when i went to install I was disapointed that it would not work on my XP operating system. I thought Xp was pretty compatable with everything but i guess not this game.This is the first time i ever said this.But make sure ur OS (operating system) is below windows 98!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable; 'nuff said
    Could this be the most addictive game of all time?It certainly feels like it, and it has that office space feel to it that really sets the atmosphere for such an epic game.
    Command & Conquer 1 was a revolutionary game, and this game continues the legacy.Red Alert's story is engrossing in and of itself (start playing and find out), but the strategy and various battle mechanisms that really make this game a treat.
    In Red Alert, you are playing against an enemy but against the clock.The game is a frenetic quest to build up your units before the other side decides to attack, and the multiplayer mode only increases the the urgency.
    The Arsenal Pack is well-designed in and of itself - it includes the regular game plus an additional mission disc called The Aftermath, which also gives you 150 additional multiplayer maps.I strongly suggest the Arsenal Pack now that The Domination Pack (which also included the Counterstrike mission disc) is no longer in stock.

    4-0 out of 5 stars It's a classic
    This game is a classic. Myself I spent hours behind the computer triyng new strategies.m If a spy infiltrates your base and you don't have the ferocious Russian attack dogs...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still the best of its genre?
    If you don't play games on the internet, this review is pretty much useless, but if you do, please read on, since I have some (maybe you didn't know before) inside scoop on Red Alert with the great expansion back Aftermath.

    Ok, you may ask yourself what I am thinking for writing the headline. But ask yourself this. What combat strategy games do we have today?
    Yes, StarCraft is a great game, and surpasses this game in the mere fact that you have more options there. But, then again, the Westwood Tournament System is a delight, and free of charge. I have never really gotten Blizzards tournament system to work, and have found it complicated to get to grips with.

    The follow up to Red Alert (2) is of course a lot better graphic-wise. The music in my opinion, is actually a step backwards since I think much of the music in that game is pretty annoying in the long-run.

    BUT, that is just me mumbling about the cons, and odds of each of the games. WHAT MAKES RED ALERT SO MUCH BETTER? Well for starters, it is so well balanced. The Soviets have their might and power, while the Allies have their speed and agility. Have you tried this game on the internet? What a treat it is! If you haven't experienced it, you should. It really wakes a new adrenaline hormone inside the body, you know.. I've played the game on the internet for about two years, and never really gotten bored with it. Using the Q button to control tanks while shooting is a real must-learn if you want to get good at it, since using the X button really doesn't help much since all the tanks do is scatter instead of shoot. I am mentioning this, because they removed the fun Q button option in the second game, something I think is a bummer. Because then it's really just about building the biggest army, and attacking. Nothing about skill in the mouse control department: No dodging shots, like in the original beautiful Red Alert.

    Oh, before I let you off, there is one more thing you SHOULD know. Aftermath is the expansion pack to Red Alert, and if you want to try it out on the internet, you really shouldn't be without it. It adds some nice new music to Red Alert, some great new units, and some more tweaking of the weapons and armour, balancing out the two sides even more!
    THE ALLIES
    * Gets a great Chrono Tank which can blow out any building within three to four shots.
    * The field Mechanic repairs units!! So you don't have to drive your units to the repair bay each time. He also can take a few hits, but protect him just in case.
    * Probably most importantly, the allied guns now do double the damage of what they did before.

    THE SOVIETS
    * Gets a Tesla Tank. These are really the teslas you are used to, but a little less powerful version on wheels. Pretty neat.
    * Tesla Troopers, has an even smaller version of the same tech. Have many of these, and start a grill party.
    * The Missile Sub is probably the most talked about addition since it makes the Soviets more capable on waters. Some say it ruins the balance of the game somewhat. I don't think so, but its up to you to decide for yourself on that subject.
    * And last but not least the M.A.D tank. This one carries a shock wave dispenser which when activated does 1/3 damage to everything around it (on-screen.) This means, that if you have three of them, and activate them all at once. Whoops.. 100% (3/3) devastation man!

    Plus, there are tons of new maps to use on the internet here too.

    That was about it I had to say about Red Alert (with Aftermath.) I really can't recommend it enough. It truly is an amazing game! I play on the Westwood Tournament System as "Xanitra" so if you see me on the ladder, why not play me:) If you say you bought the game because you did read my review of the game here on amazon.com, I might just go easy on you, or even let you win:D hehehehe.. Well, why is Red Alert so much better internet-wise than all the other new ones I've played? The answer probably is; they don't make em like they used to I guess..Well, good luck with your choice in games.
    Have fun

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great value...!!!
    Except for the $10 jewel case for total annililation and maybe starcraft there is no better value in gaming. Red alert alone is a great game with solid balanced units and structures and fun entertaining and challenging missions. Add aftermath and counterstrike and you have hours of great game play. While this is a an older game you really don't think much about it. The graphics still are decent and the game play is smooth. Certainly this game doesn't need much computer or video card to function well and still there are hundreds of players ready to take you on at either westwood.com or mplayer .

    In red alert ore is the heart of your strategy. Controlling and dominating the ore on the map is the key. This might be a shock to age of empires or total annililation fans who are used to producing vast amount of resource in camp. No in red alert you send out defenseless ore trucks to harvest and protecting them becomes harder as the game progresses and the trucks have to go further away from the confines of your camp. While you can eventually build an mcv and start a second camp you have nowhere the flexability or mobility you have in those other games. The worst is when you start a second camp only to have it destroyed and all that money was wasted because it is very difficult to protect more than one camp so try and conceal it if you can.

    The units while not as numerous or interesting as TA are more than adequate. The soviets(russia or ukraine) have the bigger tanks and the better air force while the allies(england,france,germany) have smaller quicker tanks with the superior navy. The concept is cold war not WW2 as some have said. Germany is an ally while the soviets are the enemy.

    Now i don't actually own this package rather i have owned the components for years. My question for those who actually own this package is whether it all comes on one disc or not. I have counter strike and aftermath but i don't have access to both at the same time. If all of those units and missions are available on the same disc it only makes the package an even better value.

    5-0 out of 5 stars IT IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!
    it is the best game ever u have to play it so exitingand fun with realy cool movies even tho it is old it is still and will always be my favourite. Buy the game, play the mission, then go on the internet and play me at it cuz its the best game eva!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cool game. Cool units and battles!
    The very first Command and Conquer is extremely fun to play. The missions are exciting and can be challenging at times. You can get glued on this for hours, for fun, or you may be stuck on a complex mission for some time. GDI and NOD are both very cool sides, and both have exotic units and structures. Some of the mission play can be strategic or tank rush like. On the GDI mission in Hungary, you get to build a base and destroy NOD presence in the area. This includes: Their vehicles, infantry, structures, everything. I used many Medium Tanks + Humm Vees, barged into their base, and took out their construction yard and Tiberium Refinery. They were weakened after that, and a built several more Humm Vees and killed the Turrets and Hand of Nod. I built an APC, and filled it with engineers to capture the rest of that base. This was a somewhat strategic mission unlike some of the very first ones. For those of you who just began C&C, the missions will be challenging, and it will take you a while. In my opinion, this is the best NOD and GDI conflict game. If you finsh this game, try Tiberian Sun, but keep this winner.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome
    C&C tiberian dawn is the original and best strategy game ever. Originally released in 1995: the game still rocks!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easily the best game ever created
    Let me just say WOW.If you are the person that likes RTS games, and you don't own a copy of this game you don't know what RTS games are.This game game is phenominal.I bought it back in 97 and i started playing it single player.I loved it at first but it got boring.Then i decided to try the game out online.This game doesn't even get good till you have played it online.No game will ever be as fun as this game was to play online.THE BEST ONLINE MULTIPLAYER GAME EVER.Unfortunately the online gameplay has died because it is such an old game.The game that started it all: Command and conquer Gold 95 will never be eclipsed by any other RTS game to come.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The game that started an epidemic!
    This game changed the meaning of real time strategy gaming!The live action videos fill yuo in on what your next mission is and where you are in the game.The game has a variety of units from ground to air from the Brotherhood of Nods flame tank to the high flying GDI orca aircraft, learnig new strategies on how to command your troops and conquer your enemy! ...

    For those of you who haven't yet chosen sides in the Command & Conquer conflict, here's your chance to acquire both Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun and its Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun, Firestorm expansion set in one package. Tiberian Sun pits the militaristic forces of the Global Defense Initiative against the Brotherhood of Nod, an equally well-armed religious order.

Controlling this powerful fuel source allows you to generate funds, raise armies, and fend off destruction. Firestorm raises the stakes with new units, new artwork, new video cutscenes, and a new multiplayer game mode called World Domination, where you can battle other players over the Internet for free. ...

    Boring and cut-scene crazy.Not much different than the original command n conquer.Come 'on, let's get original you guys!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Average strategy game with some lost potential
    Let's face it...the Command and Conquer line has earned it's place in gaming history and will continue to be apart of that history for a time to come. Blending a great deal of strategy with economics. This game is one of the middle level games on the ladder of the great games that have come from the good people at Electronic Arts as far as C&C games go. The game is graphically impressive and is a dream in playability allowing the use of various strategies to achieve one objective. But, the game is still a spot linear in achieving these objective. The units in the game however are suppose to earn intelligence with the amount of combat experience they recieve, particularly the infantry. I never saw this losing more infantry that any other unit in the game, even the armor which I utilized most, But this did not really detract from the overall experience. The storyline is still as good as Red Alert and lays the ground for later Command and Conquer games to come. So if you can find this game cheap...I suggest you pick it up...it'll give you a decent amount of fun and might make you think a little. :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best command & conquer of them all !!!
    hello to all c&c lovers around the world, i would like to reccomend this game to all of u, this is the best of all the c&c yet ( including the 2 new ones ) it is smart, beautiful and it even has gates in the wals witch is something they should have done a long time ago... so in conclusion find those extra few dollars and buy the game !

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tiberian Sun Firepower
    This game is a must have.If you've tryed all those other command and conqer games and you liked them yor in for a suprise. Tiberian Sun has realalistic graphics,weapons of mass destruction and multiplayer options to boot.This is a must have for any gamer and if youd like there's Tiberin Sun Firepower including the origianal and new Tiberian Sun.

    2-0 out of 5 stars sad....this game should have been what RA2 was
    Tiberian Sun, in one word, HORRIBLE. The interface is pathetic with strange buttons that don't even resemble what they do, unbalanced units, and so-so graphics.
    I hate to do this, but TB's interface does not even compare to Warcraft 2 or Starcraft's. It's slow, weird, and akward. The hotkeys are non-existant. Also the money system is (bad).
    The units are far unbalanced. GDI orca bombers, nothing nod has even comes close. NOD artillery, nothing GDi can take a group of those down. Also, the GDI medic is (poor), and never works correctly. Also, i have always disliked how you can only build like 3 units at a time. It's so slow!!! And you need a Radar Station for the mini-map to function. I've gotten lost countless times looking for my base, after i commit to an assault.
    The game seems realistic, but is plagued by horrible programming. If your getting a Command and Conquer game, get Red Alert 2, it's by FAR better. ... Read more

    Dune 2000 is a real-time strategy game that requires gallant leadership, cunning tactics, and formidable military prowess to win the Emperor's challenge by being the first to harvest the most spice and take control of Dune. Three houses have arrived to claim the prize: the honorable House Atreides, the insidious House Ordos, and the vicious House Harkonnen. Whichever house you choose to lead, remember that the balance between power and efficiency will lead you to victory. Wage successful strikes to interrupt your opponents' spice production while protecting your own. But beware, the untamed desert holds challenges beyond that of your enemies. Giant sand worms can devour your army with little warning, greedy merchants of CHOAM will plan to interrupt your spice production, and the backstabbing Emperor may provide aid to a house that is not yours. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Looks good, but...
    The game looks good and has some nice control features, but it is exactly the same game as Dune 2 in content.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dune: The Ultimate Stratiegic Battle Game
    Dune truly is an awesome game.Choose from three houses and battle for control of the spice on the planet Arrakis, or Dune. You get to choose what kind of vehicles and tanks to produce in conquering the entire planet.The graphics are good, but it was probably intended more for the idea of the game, (Which is flawless).Sure made me power hungry.In general, it is a most stunning battle game.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not great.
    My wife bought this for 12 bucks. Its worth the price for the game even though its a few years old.

    Over all its not bad. The added video scenes of John Rys Davies is a nice touch.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love these games
    I've owned all of the games EA has made like this, including Tiberian Sun, Command and Conquer, and the new Red Alert 2.Everytime they come out with a new version of any of them I have to get my hands on it.It's just so addictive.I'll spend hour after hour playing and replaying it.The only thing I wish EA would have done was to have more missions.If you had the time you could beat it in just a couple of days.I find myself getting frustrated with most games when I have a hard time trying to beat them, then I just give up and never play it again.But, I can't seem to do that with these.I just keep trying untill I finish the level that is giving me so many problems.I wish that they had a training function like the first Dune game.This game is a whole different build than that game.In the first dune you went around looking for caves that would have Fremen in them that would help you.Some you would make military, and some you would have create farms so you could get more men as the cave grew in population (it's been a long time, I may have forgotten some of it).Also, they had a space port where you could buy weapons.Now, that would make for a more exciting game for the whole EA family of these games. More, I can't wait till the next Dune comes out in 2001.

    4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME BUT......
    This game is AWESOME.Once you get it you can't stop playing it, at least for a couple of days or weeks.This game is A LOT like Red Alert, just better graphics, a different story line, and the tanks look a little different.I would get this game if you love Red Alert or your just bored.I got it cuzz I love Red Alert.But anyways you'll probally get bored of this game in a couple of weeks (Even on Multiplayer) because not that many people play it and its all the same thing over and over again.Thats my opinion so you can try the game yourself and tell me what ya think of it! ...

    Amazon.com Review

    Games with ties to movies usually stink, but few adventure games can even begin to approach Blade Runner in terms of gameplay, production level, and respect for source material. You play the part of Blade Runner Ray McCoy, traveling throughout the Los Angeles of 2019 to gather clues and question suspects as you try to follow the threads of a series of interwoven crimes.

    Blade Runner is unusual in the amount of freedom it gives players. Theoretically it is your job as a Blade Runner to eliminate any Replicants you encounter in the course of your investigations. (For those of you unfamiliar with the movie, Replicants are synthetic humans banned from Earth due to their unpredictable nature). You can choose to sympathize with their cause, however, and all the choices you make in the game have a dynamic impact on the way things will turn out in one of the multiple endings.

    Blade Runner has some of the most impressive and dramatic visuals ever to grace a computer monitor. The title's low resolution is more than compensated for by the myriad animations on each screen, the stunning detail present in every image, and the atmospheric lighting effects. Still shots do not do this game justice.

    The game is also notable for its high-quality sounds and music. It is rare to find a game with voice acting that doesn't elicit chuckles, but the hours of voice recordings in Blade Runner are almost universally superb. The diverse characters speak in a variety of accents that rarely sound hokey, and the overall quality of sounds does much to make players feel like they are actively participating in a movie.

    No game is without some problems, and Blade Runner has its share. Puzzles sometimes devolve into hunt-the-pixel searches where you try for minutes to find the exact spot to put the mouse cursor so you can pick up an object. Some of the time-based events, like trying to outrun a bomb explosion, are just plain frustrating. However, if you can live with the pixel hunts and have the discipline to save often, prepare to enjoy one of the best adventure games ever produced. Just be aware that the R-rated language and violence make for a game that is strictly for adults. --T. Byrl Baker

    Pros:

    • Stunning attention to detail in both graphics and audio
    • Outstanding voice acting--especially for a computer game
    • Captures the atmosphere and style of the movie with aplomb
    Cons:
    • Puzzles are sometimes more cheap than challenging

    4-0 out of 5 stars Average game that's incredibly immersive.
    There are two things to think about when talking about this game. One is the game mechanics themselves and one is the execution of the look and feel of the game. On the former the game lacks, but as far as the way the game looks and sounds you will be hard pressed to find a computer game that puts you this deeply into a franchise. Blade Runner is this kind of game.

    Westwood Studios decided to take a stab at the Blade Runner franchise and make a game so true to the movie that you would be hard pressed to tell the difference. I think they succeeded in this. They do it in three ways: Plot or story structure, visuals and sound. All of which holds onto an important credo: be true to the source material.

    The plot itself puts you in the Blade Runner world as a Rep Detec (a Blade Runner) on the hunt for a group fugitive replicants. Apparently this is all happening at the exact same time as the movie events as well (kinda like two different cases going on in the department). The mood and manner of the story is well done and they brought in a wealth of talent to do with voice acting, including a few from the original movie (Sean Young, Brion James, William Sanderson and more). Add some really nice cut scenes and you get a pretty theatrical experience. One "scene" where you walk out of your apartment balcony so see the city streets and skyline is almost worth playing the game alone.

    The visuals are stunning for when the game was made. Actually they still are. The backgrounds are pre-rendered with some interaction here and there. While that sounds like it makes a rather static game it does mean when you walk into a familar Blade Runner movie location you REALLY feel it. Down to the little details the background visuals really inspire.

    While the visuals are great I think what really makes the difference in this game is the sound. I think this game takes full advantage of having 32 channels of audio, and if it doesn't it sure does sound like it. Every location you go to is filled with environmental sounds. This more than anything else sucks you into the setting. Add to that the occasional cues from the Vangelis soundtrack (which mixes in perfectly by the way), PLUS the incredible voice acting, and the audio experience in breathtaking. Even with two speakers it's incredible. Add some surround sound and you will get lost in the game.

    Okay that's all the good stuff about the game, but I did say the actual game play was merely average. I meant that. The game is incredibly static. While you can travel all over the place and see the beautiful sites and sounds (which is a good thing if you think about it) the game will not progress until you take a specific action or interview a specific person. You play a detective in the game, but since the game is so linear you really don't get a chance to stretch your detecting skills much.

    Also while the backgrounds and static images or animations are incredible Westwood made a compromise and decided to reduce the resolution of the items that are more dynamic so more people with "average" systems at the time could enjoy the game. The end result is you are a very pixelated character and the characters you interact with are just as pixellated. While shading is not too bad on your pixelled self any time you compare with the backgrounds the difference is painfully obvious.

    So the game had pixelled characters and VERY linear gameplay. That's not the reason to get it. The reason to buy Blade Runner is to get yourself immersed in the Blade Runner universe. This, more than anything else, is what the accomplishes in spades.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?
    Bladerunner is one of the few adventure games that has survived through the 'new era' of 3d gaming.
    Althought following a story similar to that in the film/book, the character 'Roy McCoy' is new to the game.
    This classic game allow gamers to be immersed into the world of bladerunner, and actually hunt replicants for themselves. However there may be a few hard choices on the way.
    Play this and you may be able to answer the question, "Do androids dream of electric sheep?".

    4-0 out of 5 stars I like it
    Looking at the cover of this game I would have assumed it to be more bang-bang and low on plot. I was pleasently surprised. You take on the role of the main character, flying, running and interacting with the environment at a speed that you desire. It doesn't have the graphic beauty of say Myst, but it is dark, futuristic and sexy non the less (some scenes are a little adult). It's easy to get addicted to this game, and look forward to whats around the corner. Solving this game is not super difficult I would rate it's difficulty as low to medium. It does the movie justice and is alot of fun.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Repeat after me....WOW!!!
    I borrowed this game from a friend, and was quickly impressed. At first I was expecting much, from what he told me, it was only a few minutes distraction, but after fifteen minutes of playing, I became immersed in the world of Roy McCoy, Blade Runner.

    The thing I love most about this game is that it's practically never teh same game twice. I got captured by some baddies, but my friend said that never happened to him. Actions you take determine the future of the game. In reality, it's like those books where you pick what decision you take and turn to a page.

    The sound and music is awesome! You become caught up in Los Angeles, 2019. The characters are pretty cool, not perfect, but cool. I played the game twice, and each play is so different, that not even they stay the same.

    If you love Blade Runner, get this game. You WILL NOT, repeat WILL NOT be disappointed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Closer to the book than the film was!!
    More than anything, I am amazed at this game's respect for its source material. Ridley Scott's universe is recreated, expanded on and given new life by the good people at Westwood. The voiceovers by Ray McCoy are better than the voiceovers in the 1982 version of the film! The graphics are a sheer joy to watch; just walking around in the cyberpunkish streets is marvellous. The weather changes from rainy and dark to, well, dry and dark (it's always dark, because of the radiation.)
    Furthermore, this game pays many homages to Philip K Dick's original book, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". It is amazing to hear PKD's original Voigt-Kampff questions recorded specially for the game; the use of pet animals to promote humanity is used; and the creepy bit from the novel where Deckard cannot tell if he has been dreaming since Chapter 1 is included here, for a real Phildickian reality shift halfway through.
    Unfortunately, the game is very far from being a "great" game if one goes beyond graphics and storyline.
    First, the puzzles are VERY simplistic. A point and click is very limited; not much brainteasing goes into playing this game.
    Second, some parts are far more unpolished than others. The second half of the game seems suspiciously rushed; the graphics, sophistication and plot begin to wear down (a bit like aPhilip K Dick novel, really...).
    Third, the game is very very easy. The touted "Real Time" nature of the game is embarrassingly badly used; basically not used to advantage at all. It degenerates into a shooting match with giant rodents as McCoy goes out into the Kipple.
    Overall, the game will probably strongly appeal to fans of the movie, or fans of movies in general. I like the storyline, acting and graphics a lot; they make the game worth purchasing as an interactive "sequel" to the film.
    To nonfans of Blade Runner, the profusion of guest appearances will be puzzling; the puzzles will be hilariously simple; and the game generally will fail to please.
    However, one proviso: when I originally played the game, I was a non-Bladerunner fan; I knew nothing of the film. This game turned me into a great fan of the film, and also a fan of Philip K Dick. So maybe non-fans would still get something out of this delicious piece of fanfiction eyecandy. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    With new units, new artwork, new video cut scenes, and a new multiplayer game mode, Firestorm is a solid add-on that will certainly appeal to fans of Tiberian Sun. Like every game in the Command & Conquer series, Firestorm lets you play as either the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) or the Brotherhood of NOD. Each side gets nine new missions to undertake, with both sides struggling to tie up loose ends left over from the Tiberian Sun game. While there aren't very many new missions in this expansion pack, fans of the series will appreciate Firestorm's solid mission design and variety of new units.

    GDI players get to build and command mobile EMP cannons, long-range Juggernaut artillery units, and the mighty mobile war factory, which allows you to build military units at just about any location on the battlefield. NOD players get a mobile stealth generator, a diabolical cyborg unit called the Reaper, and their own version of the mobile war factory, dubbed The Fist of NOD. In addition, many of the original Tiberian Sun units have been upgraded or enhanced in Firestorm.

    Another cool feature is the new World Domination multiplayer mode. In World Domination, literally thousands of players can take part in a tournament between GDI and NOD, as each side tries to take over the entire world. With the world map divided up into many small regions, players attempt to help their side by winning one region at a time. Once one side has control of the entire globe, the game resets.

    Despite the hype surrounding its development and release, Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun did little to revolutionize the real-time strategy genre. It did, however, provide more of the classic RTS game play that made the original Command & Conquer and its Red Alert prequel so popular. The same holds true for Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun: Firestorm. --Michael E. Ryan

    Pros:

    • More real-time strategy in the C&C universe
    • New units for both GDI and NOD forces
    • Great new multiplayer mode: World Domination
    Cons:
    • Only nine new missions per side
    • More real-time strategy in the C&C universe

    I don't have the Firestorm Expansion but I do have the original game. If you think the computer is pathetic try level two instead of bein' a wuss. They Really put up a fight(usually). Or even better try it on the internet its a blast. Everybody on there is pretty good and you'll usually lose.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this package....
    For the same price you can get tiberian sun along with this expansion pack. Why pay [this much] just for this? Get the combination pack called "fire power" for the same price and you will have an additional TS game to share with a friend. That package also provides you with a TS soundtrack CD which is pretty cool to listen to. As for the firestorm pack i would say it provides some nice additions. Several additional units on each side and some minor changes to some units that westwood thought would help the competiveness. They do. For example GDI jump jet infantry have been given better range and the ability to see cloaked units and structures. They have added the juggernaut to the GDI which is similar to the nod artillery. Another neat addition is the mobile war factory that is available for both the nod and the GDI. The nod is gifted with a multiple missile launcher. Of course you get several new maps which are bigger and better than the TS ones. The firestorm map editor provides the opportunity to make some really neat maps. Unfortunately none of these maps will work without the firestorm disc in case you have a friend who doesn't have it. Also firestorm brings a slightly improved steamlined look for some units. Not a big change but the firestorm graphics seem just a bit cleaner and sharper.

    That brings us to the main reason for buying any expansion pack. The missions. Firestorm gives you 18 original missions(9 for each side) and they are all fun and well thought out. These missions assume you already know how to play the game and include some creative additions you have not seen before. The video included is actually pretty good and very entertaining. I highly recommend them.

    As for multiplay there are also many exellent additions yet they lack popularity. While it's still fairly easy to find a game at the TS site the number of firestorm players is somewhat limited. Westwood came up with the neat idea of having a "tour for world domination". A site where you can take the gdi or nod and fight against the other side for the purpose of defending territory for your side or taking territory from the other side. For this purpose westwood sets up games yet you will find very few people to play them.

    In short tiberian sun is a game that is still a great deal of fun with graphics and game play that are still up to date today. Firstorm is a worthy expansion pack but it's simply not worth the price when you can get the fire power package for the same cost.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It rocks
    When I got it, I "plugged" it in and watched the magic.It is a vast improvement for GDI, because now they have artillery units(Juggernauts) making it a bit more equal on both sides(GDI[good] and NOD[bad]).

    The missions are by far better than Tiberian Sun, making this a most enjoyable game.If you feel lucky, you might want to try the World Domination Tour.I tried it and boy is the CPU hard.

    GDI has awesome new units like a Mobile EMP, Mobile War Factory, and Drop Pod Control Plug for on the Upgrade Center.

    NOD has new units too, but not as exciting as GDI's.They include a Mobile Stealth Generator, Fist of Nod(MWF), and my favorite, the Cyborg Reaper.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Could have been much better....
    This game could have been much better. There are only 9 new missions for each side. There are only about four new units for each side. The vidio clips are horrible beyond belief. The new storyline isnt very interesting, and in most of the missions you get very limited technology, so you dont get to use the new units very much.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Its great
    I just love all the new tactics you can now use with all the new units. This pack made me change all my fighting strategies. I love this expansion, its an expansion I wish they had to begin with. GDI now has long range weapons, and the Nod now get some more fierce items to use. I have to say, the Firestorm experience isn't complete unless you get this expansion. It also build on to the story of this series. This is part II of the normal command and conquer games (Tiberian dawn, Tiberian sun, and soon to come Tiberian Twilight [I think]). ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Though cast in the action/RPG game-play style of Diablo, Nox breaks its mold and offers up more than a few pleasant surprises. The third-person isometric perspective offers a refreshing dose of humor, served up by a slick interface and starring very distinct character classes. Much more than a clone, Nox takes the best the genre had and--for the most part--makes it better.

    Nox's story of a harmless auto mechanic who gets accidentally sucked into a fantasy world immediately sets this game apart from its dark and dour brethren. Nox is funny, and it's refreshing to play an RPG that tries to put a smile on your face.

    Game play, dungeons, puzzles, and even the story are slightly altered, depending on Jack's class, giving three separate single-player experiences, all leading to the same final showdown with Hecubah. The quests are typical RPG fare--find this, kill that, rescue these guys--spiced up with puzzles relating to the class's abilities or environment.

    The Nox team's energies went toward creating a game that's fast, fun, and easy to play. It worked. No knock-off, it won't be long before we start seeing games influenced by the innovative designs of Nox. --Mike Fehlauer

    Pros:

    • Very distinct, fun character classes
    • Innovative action/RPG multiplayer game modes
    • Slick interface
    • Refreshing humor
    Cons:
    • No female characters
    • Unrealistic inventory system
    • Uninspired magic items

    4-0 out of 5 stars Loads of fun
    By now Nox is considered a pretty old game I'm sure, and it's long been discontinued by Westwood. Sadly, it will probably never see a sequel, as this game is much deserving. It was years ago that I played it, I couldn't stop talking about it at the time, and while it's not the most original game around, I haven't since found a CRPG to match it for shear playability and fun. Let this review be an ode to the late nights I spent immersed in its gameworld.

    The three playable character types: Warrior, Wizard, and Conjurer, are suitably unique and for each the game plays out differently, with different environments and quests, all eventually leading up to the same objective (why, destroying the evil sorceress, of course). Also, the fighting strategies you employ will differ quite a bit for each character. This offers some replay value as you'll want to replay the game as different characters to experience everything.

    The environments and monsters are aplenty and diverse enough to keep things fresh. There's a great accompanying music soundtrack that helps create a nice mood moving from place to place.

    Nox shines in an area that, far too often, mars my ability to enjoy many otherwise compelling RPGs: its fighting system. Combat in Nox is fast, furious, and immersive; helped by its intuitive gameplay controls. Movement works by holding down the right mouse button and moving the cursor in the direction you want to move--closer to the character to walk and father ahead to run--and the left button swings your weapon; this in addition to a combination of hotkeys on the keybord for accessing your spell attacks, monster summons, or special abilities. Unlike in the similarly styled Diablo (I/II) (which this game undoubtedly takes a lot of inspiration from) where you'll often stand in one place and watch your character hack away without visible effect, Nox is very involved; you've got to keep moving as taking hits can really hurt, you're even able to use your sheild (if you can wield one) to block attacks from your front. It's basically an action game with mouse control. A nicely designed system that was excecuted very well here and one I would like to see more PC games implement.

    My biggest dissapointment with Nox is its lack of cooperative multiplayer. Its multiplayer component is a 2-38 player deathmatch, which I had a lot of fun with, but it would be nicer to adventure together with friends. The developers later released a cooperative multiplayer add-on for free on their website but I never played it so I don't know how it matched up to the single player experience.

    Before playing Nox, I was more of a multiplayer exclusive guy and wouldn't usually find myself sitting down to traverse the lonely world of single player games. Nox really surprised me; it's just plain fun and addictive. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest it to casual players and people who don't normally like RPGs, because of its fast-paced, action-oriented gameplay and short learning curve.

    5-0 out of 5 stars cool game
    this is one of the neatest games I've played.OK there are no chick characters and you can only customize you char so much, BUT it's so funny.The sound effects, and the visual is just great.It's not very realistic looking and it's a little faster than what I was used to, but it's definitely way too much fun (extremely time consuming, as every time I play, I end up at my computer for hours!)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best interface I'v played.Sleeper surprise.
    The interface is super well done.Made enjoying the game easy.It was for me a real surprise how well it was done.It did not recieve all the hype many games get yet it is as good as any other I played (i.e. Diablo, ...) and unique in many ways.As in all RPGs there is a spot or two where the play gets a bit teadious but this game had much less of this than others.Each of the three character types requires a truely different style of play.One aggressive (hack and slash with weapons and armor emphasis), one moderate (magic bent with spells and charms emphasis), and one defensive (summoner idiom with "let your friends do the killing while you try and stay out of the way" emphasis).Each requires different actions and thinking strategy, and each is just as fun as the others, just different; which means there is good replayability even if you don't go online for a fight.This game is growing harder to get these days so if you have an interest act now.

    Hail Flavius

    2-0 out of 5 stars don't expect much
    Electronic Arts simply isn't known for putting out good games of this type. Their money seems to be on sports games. Anyway, I got Nox at the bargain bin price. The game is solo action pseudo-rpg. Buy this game if you want to help Amazon out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Game
    This game was excellent and fun to play.The game from Westwood has you choose from being a wizard, conjurer, or warrior, and fight off Hecubvah and her evil necromancers.
    The game has good graphics and it keeps you busy playing it.You can play the solo and defeat Hecubah or you can go online and play with other people. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Game rocks!
    This game was the first C&C game
    I ever played.It rocks! I've
    played other war games like Real War.
    It was not long enough. It is only
    good for the campeign mode. It
    is a little too bloody for
    little kids. But, otherwise it is
    a great game. I recomend it!!!!!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Cool
    This game has no strategy involved, its about who can make the most tanks, men, etc...I have won in 20 minutes by mass producing my tanks...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I saw this item featured
    ...I have this game, it's a classic, and while I have played Starcraft, Warcraft I, Warcraft II, Red Alert 2, Tiberian Sun, the original Command & Conquer, Empire Earth, Age of Empires, Age of Empires II, all of these games' expansion packs, clones of these games, alterations of the genre like Myth I-III, Battlezone (but not Battlezone II, that wasn't as good as the original) I'd still have to say that I had the most fun playing this game of all of those other games. The focus now, sadly, seems to be on unit tactics. While fun, it never ever approached the level of fun or the need for nostalgia either(!) that was so well captured in this game.

    The previous reviewer who said that today's RTS games are too slow was correct. Red Alert really was about fast-paced battles, and the computer AI was one of the best and perhaps the most fun to play. One on one skirmishes against the computer, if played correctly, could be over in 10 minutes. The speed of the battles and the huge armies that you could create were amazing. The huge armies were only so much fun back then because they were actually hard to get. Now they are so easy. You build base defense, wait for your queues to finish, assign teams to numbers 1-0, and then move in to destroy player x. I play Red Alert 2 on the fastest speed setting and even then, the games always last twice and even three times as long as old Red Alert games. The acting and the stories in the movies was even better. The allied side had more character to it, unlike the RA 2 allies, who seem as deep as a sheet of paper. I especially missed the soviet side, which had more sense of story to it and Nadia's "Thanks... I made it myself," line. It was also nice to be in an actual briefing room with your other commanders as it gave a sense of urgency and made you actually fear for your life at times, not knowing what was going to happen in the movies. In short, the movies had more story to them, they were longer, and the characters were so much more memorable and at times believable.

    Superweapons were fun in the original RA, but now they seem corny in RA 2. As for unit tactics, you won't find them in this game but you'll find much more than that. You'll find battle tactics. Unit tactics, I think, were an effort to improve micromangement by making it more fun. And to some degree, it is, but it tires easily. That first big rush by the computer is something I miss a lot. The computer just keeps sending tank after tank after tank and you can never have good enough base defense. I also remember playing modem games allied with a friend of mine against the computer, and they were much more fun than any online games of Starcraft (which is separated into about 5 main categories: rush, normal game with limited resources, BGH with unlimited resources, role-playing game, and survive for x minutes while defending x structure) and much better than any game of C&C tiberian sun, red alert 2, etc.

    Build queues, making individual units have special functions, and other things such as formation and unit behaviors are really quite crappy in comparison to the gameplay in this game. I still appreciate that stuff but I liked the urgency and fast-paced battles in this game.

    I know it's not nostalgia either. The first RTS game I played was Warcraft II, and I played lots of modem games with that as well. I don't think a game developer has to do more than create a solid game for it to have an audience. The only other game I could place in this "holy category" would have to be half-life. Prior to buying half-life, I had played Quake, Quake II, Wolfenstein, Doom, Doom 2, Duke Nukem 3d, etc. These two games weren't the first, but they're definitely the most polished. If someone made a Red Alert with updated graphics, I'd buy it right away. That's probably the only thing that made me stop playing. Other games had better graphics...

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Instant Classic
    This is one of the most remarkable games ever put out for the PC. I know people that wouldn't, under any circumstances, consider themselves a computer gamer, but have nevertheless played Red Alert. That's how fun it is. From the day it was released, it was obvious this was going to be one of the best real time strategy games of all time.

    It is the pace of Red Alert that distinguishes it from some of the older classics, such as the original Command & Conquer and Dune II. After you've played this game, the other ones will seem to be going in slow motion. Multiplayer games in Red Alert are frequently over within 20 minutes, and the actual outcomes can be determined in skirmishes that last just seconds. What is probably most appealing about this is the fact that it's realistic- 20 minutes is about right for a real battle. Unlike the long slugging matches and wars of attrition you can get into in some other real-time strategy titles, you will never get into a deadlock in Red Alert.

    For those of you who were appalled by the AI in old Command & Conquer (more like, the lack thereof), the Red Alert AI is much improved. You won't see an enemy army camped peacefully in the middle of your base anymore, and they can actually fight in multiplay. The single player missions are challenging, and have a great plot. You definitely get a feel for both sides and what they are fighting for, and the acting- though at times somewhat painful- was a good backdrop for the action.

    Balance between the Soviet and Allied sides is well done. In general, the Allies move faster and have superior naval power (the Aftermath add-on balances the navies somewhat). The Soviets have stronger but slower units, and better air power. What distinguishes Red Alert (and its sequel, as well) is the fact that the units are really different. They aren't just clones of the other side with different graphics, and many have very specialized uses. There are innumerable tactical plans you can choose, each using different units, maneuvers, and strategies.

    One thing that will not work- and this is a good thing- is playing totally defensive. Unlike some other RTS games (Tiberian Sun, Starcraft, or Total Annihilation) sitting in your base and trying to hold off your opponents is a sure way to lose. This is good because Red Alert matches are therefore more than a bunch of rushes and resource wars, but tend to be climactic battles that usually involve large numbers of tanks and perhaps air and sea support. Now, I realize some people enjoy spending hours whittling down their enemies and being whittled in return, and if you're one of those people then this game isn't for you. For all the rest of us, it's a joy to play.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Red Rules!
    If you are looking for an awesome strategy games with lots of action, Red Alert is the way to go. It has over 30 different levels of intense bunker-bustin', enemy whoopin', tank-shockin' action! This is a must own for all military and strategy gamers alike! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars great
    this game has kept me busy on my free time for 4 years and trust me this is a great game. here's how the storyline goes- Premier Romanov remembers a war from his childhood, Allied tanks rolling across the streets and soldiers marching through the city. because of this he has forever hated America, leader of the Allies. now he's an aristocrat and has become the king or something of russia under the image of a peaceful man. but he's really building bases across the world in a crazy plan to crush the Americans. he and his comrade Yuri, a person with the ability to control people's minds waged war against america with tactics such as using yuri's students to mind control cows loaded with explosives to american forts and using the navy to transport tanks as they overrun New York. in the end the allies won but yuri has escaped. during the War between the Allies and Soviets and created his own army and now's trying to dominate the earth with his new weapon the psychic dominator- attempting mind controlling everyone in the world. the allies' goal is to destroy yuri to save the world and the soviets' goal is to get revenge on yuri for betraying them. the campaign is extremely difficult compared to the original one's. there's a whole new army avaliable on skirmish and new units and fixes to glitches have been created.

    2-0 out of 5 stars 50% Good
    All I have to say is when you order the "pack" make sure they send ALL the serial codes to load the game!Spent the money got the games but received only one serial code for the pack (Red Alert 2).Yuri's revenge required a separate code which was not included, so now I can enjoy half the game and use the Yuri's Revenge disk as a coaster or maybe a colorful mini-frisbee!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable
    This game was not exactly what I was expecting, but for only $20, I was NOT disappointed.When it was released, I really thought about buying it, I'm glad I waited for the $40 - $50 price tag to come down... normally, I like to be the first one on the block to play one of the ones I have played in the past.

    Generals is a variation on the original Command & Conquer series and is not another updated version with a new name and additional units and plays, for the most part, without any sort of a similar "storyline".The RTS aspect is solid, the ai is pretty good, and the player interface is adequate (but took a little getting used to) - it's available at a fair price and worth purchasing.If I had bought this game at the original price I doubt I would have had any further interest in buying any of the the future versions of C&C, but for another $20 I will probably pick up the Zero Hour expansion pack.... something that should probably have been a free update to those that paid the initial price.

    The only complaint I would make is the "view" ... it's the type of view that drops to more of a "ground level" perspective like in Empire Earth or Total War:Rome rather than a true zoom/unzoom available in a Age of Empires/ Rise of Nations or even SimCity...Generals was quite enjoyable even though that feature is not my preference.

    Other than that, I thought it was fun and challenging and well worth the $20 price tag.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome!!
    This game rocks!! I love Red Alert and Red Alert II, but this game is 20 times better! It's real time strategy about wars that are similar to the wars we are facing across seas. I highly recomend this game, and if u have spare money, get the expansion pack zero:hour, which expands your battle options. But overall, this game is the best game C&C has come up with!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars A big dissapointment
    Buying this game when it came out was a mistake i think to this day.C and C previous titles were ones to marvel at, this one is one to chuck in a garbage can.The missions are somewhat amusing and the terran is ok, but the subject of the game that really mad me, dare i say, cry, was the game's shortness and terrible unit graphics.In Generals, you play in 3 campaigns, terroist, chinesse, and AMERICAN, however, with only ten missions, +or-, you can get through the game, quite quickly.Also, being in 3D, i expected some quality of the game sprites, or on ground units, however, they dissapointed me greatly.With its extreme shortness, lack of modes, and basically, i came to conclude that this game, fell far short of reaching the shrine of C and C games ...

THIS GAME IS BASED OFF OF WINDOWS 95, AND WINDOWS XP IS BASED OFF OF WINDOWS NT, HENCE THE CONFLICT! INSTALLING IS A BREEZE, BUT DONT THINK ABOUT PLAYING LAN WITHOUT INSTALLING ANCIENT IPX PROTOCOLS, BECAUSE THATS ALL WESTWOOD USES!

    But if you do happen to install the game and configure your IPX Protocols properly then you will have access to THE GREATEST GAME EVER INVENTED!!!

    And yes.. I just got my copy of Red Alert running a lan game on a XP machine and an ME machine.. No please, no applauss.

    -This is the best version of Red Alert. The Expansion version of this one (Red Alert Counterstrike) is even better!! I have tried many other strategy game by this same company, but the original Red Alert and its expansion is by far the best!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best
    This game is the best game just like gameslice pc gamer and computer life think it is. Great levels,buildings and war trucks/men.A little bad picture great sound.

    3-0 out of 5 stars This game is moderately strategic
    I played this game for a bit and found it was ok. It was very violent and futuristic, but i guess thats what teenagers want these days. I found the campaigns very easy, as I beat them in a week. The game isnt very strategic, but it has it's strategy points.This game should not be rated 5 stars. The graphics are mediocre, the music is annoying, and the gameplay is slightly boring after a while. As you go through the world as either the Russians or the English, you face many campaigns that you must beat. It was clever of them to put them together, but they are very easy. You can go along several paths, another plus, but the paths all end the same way if you win.

    This game is also not very strategic. You are either allied or soviet, and each team has completely different units. That maybe strategic, but there are only 2 points of views to master. In Age of Empires or Age of Kings, there are many different civilizations each with bonuses and special units. Also, the terrain has no affect on how damage is dealt. It will just deal the same amount every time. No matter to what kind of unit. In AOK, each unit has a different amount of armor, some have attack bonuses against certain units, and units have the advantage in battle when they are uphill.

    This game is also very violent and bloody with futuristic weapons. Not the kind of game i would like my kids playing. In AOK, the units use bows, arrows, and swords, with not much blood and historical features. It also has a whole history book of all the tribes that you can be and their history.

    Oh. What the point of the game is. Blow the other team to bits with guns as big as you can.

    I didnt like this game much, and from my review, you can see that I would reccommend Age of Empires or Age of Kings. See my review of Age of Empires Collecter's Edition. Before you even consider buying this game.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best game ever

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best but still fun.
    You get to control people in a 3D enviroment. There is only one camera veiw though, which sux. Other then that the game is cool especially the computer intelligence.

    4-0 out of 5 stars dune is not pointless
    every one i know say this game is crap but i think it is quite good because you dont offen get to command armys that are bigger than the base you origionally built!!! strategy games are my favorite types, like the command and conquer series which were ace and still are. You also have the opportunity to steal buildings and nick their technology.
    i also enjoy battering the ai twats and putting their troops in a kind of death camp. oh yeah that reminds me i have tip to get rid of harvesters here it is:
    (you need to be ordos team for this)
    1) build a mcv and build it in a desolate area
    2) build a repair pad next to it
    3) buildset of conrete (the largest set)
    4) then build missile turrets all the way round but leave one gap for an harvester to enter.
    5) get a deviator and steal a ai harvester quickly get a carryall to send it to the repair pad near your 'death camp'
    6) when it has arrived send it in to the middle of the turrets and close the gap with a wall so when it turns back it cant escape.
    7) when it has been destroyed delete the wall and repeat the sequence over and over till they have no cash to buy with
    Then launch a massive assault on their base

    remember to keep the deviator safe from the enemy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars If you liked Dune, You'll love Dune 2000
    I fell in love with Dune for the ol' Sega.So when I saw Dune 2000 hidden in the back of some discount games I was browsing through, I impulse purchased.Dune 2000 ups the original, as to be expected. (It's not 16-bit anymore!) Better graphics, although not what one would expect, more scenerios, and some pretty neat video segways (even that proffesor from Sliders as the Atredies mentat!) are plusses.The menus can be daunting at first or when in a rush, however.I've spent many a late night plotting the downfall of each of the three houses.If you enjoyed Dune II, buy Dune 2000.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
    Dune 2000 is a very challanging game. I would recamend it to anyone who likes a challange.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Solid and Fun
    The Dune chronicles come alive on video?Well.... not really, but the game is solid and fun. This game is very similar to Command and Conquer with some improvements. As with C&C there is a story line to follow between missions which has some relavence to the books and worms will eat you troops. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    This strategy game pits the militaristic forces of the Global Defense Initiative against the Brotherhood of Nod, an equally well-armed religious order. Players may play either side as the factions fight to control an ecologically ravaged Earth. The key to winning is tiberium, a plant that serves as raw material for weapons and factories. Controlling this powerful fuel source allows you to generate funds, raise armies, and fend off destruction.

    Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun is a simple combat simulator that allows the player to gather resources, turn them into soldiers, and unleash them against the foe. The game runs in real time, so events can turn against you quickly, but if one is cautious and observant, the battles are not too hard to win.

    Though their missions are different, the two sides are essentially interchangeable, with identical military discipline and similar battle units. Though the Brotherhood of Nod has fascist trappings and is obviously the villain, there is no significant difference in playing one side or the other. The game also lacks female battle units, though it features a few women in interstitial sequences.

    Despite these weaknesses, Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun is thoroughly entertaining and will satisfy anyone who enjoys building an army from the ground up and testing it on the battlefield. --Alyx Dellamonica ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars c&c tiberian sun
    Addicting, but not worth the time.I say that because this game is a bit far-fetched.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Same as the original
    Remember Command and Conquer, the real-time strategy that lets you build a base, a lot of units and rush the opposing force?You'd think the developers of the original would come up with some innovative game play for the sequel. While maybe they can, they didn't here. Not only is the game play unchanged, it suffers from a weak story, poor balancing and computer AI and several small problems.

    The single player campaign story, what there is of it, is just a jumble of scenarios without much to tie them together. There are characters and things happen to them but but there isn't a story progression to follow. You fight over here, you fight over there, then it's the final battle. In fact I reached the end of the GDI campaign without realizing it. The live video cut-scenes should have helped create a rich back-story but writing this I can't remember any of it.

    There are balance issues particularly with NOD units and structures. A NOD 'super laser' structure can destroy almost anything with one shot but the NOD artillery is completely unbalanced. With a long range and a big punch, the artillery is can wipe out any ground force, and is unstoppable even in small numbers as long as a small anti-air backup is nearby.

    The computer is an easy opponent. It doesn't rush but sending units at piecemeal, a handful at a time. It doesn't protect it's harvesters either, once you locate them it's easy to cut-off the computer's resources. The computer showed some initiative just once: During a NOD scenario several GDI engineers rushed my base taking several of my structures. I was so surprised it nearly wiped me out but building a good perimeter stopped later rushes. In the scenarios that followed the engineer rush never happened again. I didn't try any higher difficulty levels, maybe the computer plays better there.

    Large maps are hard to manage, the game tell you that an offscreen unit is lost but not where the unit is. Some scenarios seem designed to simply frustrate you with a huge map and a timed objective with no direction as to where to accomplish it. In the end the game is all about the mass rush, once you build 50 or medium strength units nothing the computer can't stop you. On the technical side this game ran perfectly on Windows 2000.

    If you're looking for more of the original Command and Conquer this game's for you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tiberian Sun is still the best of the C&C/Red Alert series!
    When it comes to single-player (solo) gaming, Tiberian Sun is the best of
    the C&C/Red Alert series!Why?Let me count the reasons.

    Tiberian Sun missions are the most varied and interesting.It isn't all
    about building up a base and destroying the enemy's base.When you play as
    a GDI or NOD, you think one side really is superior (I thought GDI was
    until I realized NOD had better defensive base capabilities).The units &
    vehicles were really ahead of its time when you compare the game to RA or
    RA2.And lastly, TS really was harder for me compared to the other series.

    When it comes to multi-player (online) gaming, I imagine that TS is the
    best to play with too, although I imagine that NOD gets played an
    overwhelming amount due to its superior defensive base technologies and
    offensive weapons (stealth, artillery, destructive chemical weapons,
    lasers, burrowing, etc).The only good thing I can think about GDI is if
    someone gets to build too many bombers, then GDI will attrition NOD to
    death.

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of The Best Games Ever
    I never liked strategy games but this one is different. Great graphic with blood and corpses when you bomb or kill your enemies. Gets harder as you play but if you plan out your assault then you'll definately win the mission.
    Great music and reminds me of the creatures game music.. same company..

    4-0 out of 5 stars This game is excellent!
    I bought this game after borrowing RA2 from a friend and I decided to buy TS because I had played it before and it was really good. It has a rather small display which lacks in detail but is perfect to see what is going on. The units have variety, but GDI and NOD are a bit too similar, for instance both sides have the same type of MCV, but on RA2 they are different. It's just aesthetical. But some units are so [incredibly awsome] that they alone can keep you glued to the screen for hours, trying to devise a strategy to take them out. I find that NOD Banshees or GDI Orca bombers in groups of five or six can be used to take out the enemy MCV, then the other buildings. The NOD Artillery are really good defense and attack if you can afford to support them with Mobile Repair Vehicles and some sort of tank (Buggies do well, but die fast). The Component Tower idea is a bit stupid though. GDI Firestorm Defense is good but annoying and the walls are annoying to build (piece by piece, unlike RA2) and annoying to repair. The in-game movies are a bit disgusting, but the soundtrack is really good. Overall, it is a great game and one of Westwood's best productions. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pure excellence.
    Command and Conquer as a franchise (with the disappointing exception of Generals) is quite simply THE greatest strategy game of all time. Period. There is really nothing bad that can be said about the series. If you don't own these games, buy them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is great!!
    I started playing the C&C games way back, when they came out.
    I saw this at a store a few weeks ago and I was like "cool, all 4 of them in one package," so I bought it. I was completely new to Tiberian Sun and RA2 and they totally blew me away. The AI is much better and so are the graphics. However, I must warn you if you are running XP then you won't be able to play the original C&C or the Win 95' version of RA so you will have to install it on DOS. Oh, yeah, I got this 20 dollars cheaper at gamestop so this might not be the place to buy it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great
    The absolute best RTS ever made.The missions for both GDI and NOD are chanlliging in the extreme if you have never play this I recommend you pick it up at the bargain rack.It may be old but for its time it was very advanced.This game and warcraft started a revolution in the computer game industry ...
