It's like Command and Conquer Generals but done correctly. Really fun with a great sound track.

I liked this game. It was fun to play and they had some interesting weapons. For example there was a tank that can send out an exploding drone. I like the resource system being a simple system of oil or money. I also liked the different aircraft. Some where tactical while some where strategic. The also did a good job of using stealth for reccon. I often don't play RTS games because I am a TBS fan and RTS games are sometimes to quick for me. At the easy setting the pace was nice and enjoyable and I didn't feel rushed.

A very well written and playable game which keeps you engaged and moving along even if you only intended to play one mission as you will find it too easy and tempting to not quit after just a mission of the campaign. Be warned, for Windows 7 and 8, excluding 8.1, it requires some research and going through a few hoops to get it running, but well worth the effort.

Bought it with the understanding I would need to do a little configuring to get it to run however, all my attempts have failed. No refunds, I know so let this be a warning to any future buyers. My rig is more than capabale of running this yet error upon error keep it from running.

Hear that? That is the sound of 10 bucks going down the drain.
