Command Conquer: Generals is a PC strategy game in real time in which you can play the part of the Chinese, the United States, or an Islamic terrorist organization.
As with other similar games, it offers action and adventure and provides you with a great dose of realism. Command and Conquer: Generals confronts three powerful armies which will create strategic, but unstable, alliances to beat their rivals. If you want to achieve final victory, you will have to combine different strategies and tactics and always be faster than your enemy.
This great game also supports both single and multiplayer modes and different gaming styles.
Different forces in Command & Conquer: Generals
As we already said, Command and Conquer: Generals is a real-time strategy game. It allows you to choose between three different armies: the Chinese forces, the Global Liberation Army - which is the Islamic organization - or the United States military.
You have to take the side of one of them in order to achieve victory and every army has to successfully complete seven missions.
For example, the tensions between China and the Islamic group start after a nuclear attack on Beijing. As a result, the Chinese carry out several assaults on the different GLA bases in the Pacific Ocean.
However, the United States will begin to attack important locations of the GLA in different and real life scenarios such as Baghdad or the Caspian Sea. However, the final objective of the US forces is to defeat China, who will eventually end up supporting the Islamic terrorists.
As with any other real-time strategy game, Command and Conquer offers the same features as Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos or Age of Empires III. All three games consist of expanding empires, beating enemies to achieve victory while allowing the player to use real-life strategies.
