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.

Awesome graphics and an exciting, never-boring gameplay for this military strategy game

Command and Conquer: Generals is one of those games that is both challenging and exciting to play. Whether you’re playing against other human players over LAN or with the AI, the game is truly a test of your strategic and tactical playing skills. As the player, you’ll have the option of taking command of the armies of United States of America, China and a Middle-Eastern, quasi-terrorist organization known as the Global Liberation Army or GLA.
In Command and Conquer: Generals, you’ll start off building essential structures that will be the foundation of your military force. One of the things that I noticed with this game is that there are inherent, differing advantages and disadvantages for the USA, Chinese and GLA forces. The United States military might feels more balanced in my opinion though, while the GLA force has this lightning-fast feel, which means that everything feels much lighter to build and even faster to deploy. The Chinese super-power feels a lot like the US to play.
Installed on a PC with the minimum specification requirements, Command and Conquer: Generals is a game that you will surely play for hours and hours on end.
- Excellent gameplay and perfect graphics
- Even with just 3 types of militaries to choose from, this game is very addicting to play
- The game exhibits a relatively good balance whatever side you choose
- Expansion packs make the game even more fun to play
THE ULTIMATE WORLD WAR GAME FORECASTING FUTURE WORLD HAPPENINGS AND WORLD SUPERPOWERS REALIGHNMENT

Command and Conquer: Generals
This game employs pure fantasy imagination based on to what can happen in the future and in mind is realignment of world superpowers and the omnipresent and borderless terrorist group. The game has three factions to play i.e the two superpowers of that day in mind i.e the Chinese and United States (U.S.A) and then the Islamic terrorist organization known as the Global Liberation Army (GLA).
What I like about this game is the very clear graphical designs and the pleasing and colorful camera effects. It looks real when a nuclear bomb is dropped on Beijing and the tension created is apparent as Chinese Generals plan and strategize on their attack. The attack that follows as Chinese hits several targets of the GLA in the Pacific Ocean as well as the USA carrying out attacks in real sites like Bagdad and the Caspian Sea looks too real.
The game becomes more captivating as you employ first class strategies and tactics to defeat your enemy. It is very interesting to watch what will happen as you employ strategic tactics such as hit and run, suicide stunts, modern war machines with Aerial strike bombers, steal enemy supplies and vehicles etc.
- Improves your imagination ability and is exiting to play
- The graphic and camera effects are very good
- Some strategic missions are complicated and hard to complete
