Summary

Crappy game, pretty fun - no one knows why.

The Good

the graphics are preatty good most of the time, tho sometimes they suck. great music. voic acting for the units rocks sometimes, suck oher times. a good example for it is the great lybian truck vs. most of the lame soviets (if they were sampled from even semi russian people...) another example is the Desolator, he sound kewl, like a Warcraft2 deathknight - but isn't he supposed to be Iraqi???

The Bad

stupid plot. boring campaign. a few superunits can crush a base in seconds. snow levels look like crap. stupid unuseful expansive sea units. stupid ai - your units ignore it when they are being fired upon, plot their own stupid courses and enter enemy fire zones. a few dogs can kill dozens of gis and they just ignore them. units ignore your orders sometimes for no appearent reason - only to get themselves killed.

The Bottom Line

For some unknowen reason this game is fun. maybe it's alien influence. play it, curse the stupid ai and continue to play.
