This is a great RTS game for those who love stragety games, The unit control is great and the diffrent roles for Infantry, Armor, Support and Air is also great, I strongly suggest that if you get this game then go download the Modern Warfare mod for this game, it changes the game and for the better, It updates the units to what the military is using today, There is modernized rocket artillery, the Air role is given Jets, although you cannot control the Jets you can order fire missions on enemy units. All I have left to say is if you like real-time stragety games, then GET THIS GAME

Just wanted to say that my game is working fine on Windows 8.1 with 64 bit. I was very apprehensive after all the comments saying it wouldn't work. I bought the Complete Pack, which includes Soviet Assault. So far I've only downloaded WIC and begun playing that without issue. I will update once Soviet Assault is downloaded to let others know if it is playable. Really great game so far considering it's age.

UPDATE: 5/30/15 Soviet Assault did not work when installed with WIC. However, what I've found is that Soviet Assault is actually the full version of WIC with new maps thrown in. So.....if you buy the Complete Pack as I did, DO NOT install WIC at all. Install Soviet Assault ONLY and you will get all the maps and your game will work fine.

As for a review, Metacritic scores seem to be on the money. The campaign doesn't last long. Replayability is moderate. Seems to lack depth as far as strategy is concerned, but overall a great buy at $9.99.

I'll try to keep it short:

by the way, I did not play the multiplayer.

Pro's:

- Very good looking Strategy Game
- Interesting Story
- Innovative camera
- Play on both sides (USSR+ USA) which diminishes the good/bad cliche a bit.

Con's:

- unfortunately no Building, just calling reinforcements (you have to use a points system, the reinforcements get dropped in via airplane)
- gets a bit repetitive after a while (In every mission you either have to conquer a spot or hold it, or both^^)
- Story-ending to open for my taste
- Normal mode is too easy
- in some parts the story is too cliche. (I don't want to spoil, but you will see it when you play the game)

Conclusion:

Can recommend it for strategy fans who do not need a serieus challenge and are ok with not being able to build a base!
