Oh Wiily? It's not like rise of nations at all. The game lets you play on a grand scale any nation you like. The smallest unit type is a division and you're using your nation's resources to develop your military and technology. It's not like otehr RTS games where you point and click in individual units, it's like a battlemap coming to life.

You know, the ones that have the boxes for divisions and arrows pointing to their directions, the game is like that. Each of those pieces on the map is a province that you take over and can use the resources of to further your cause. There's partisans to consider however and how much is worth it. If you take over certain parts of Europe you can make new countries like Basque, Wallonia, Flanders, Scotland and other places. If you take over the soviet union you can split it up into the modern countries and russia itself can be carved into 4 countries. Nuclear weapons come later on and they're very devastating but toned down from the first game. All in all, good stuff, not rise of nations.

I always loved CNC. Renegade was in my opinion pretty good, but just didn't ahve the fan base for a sequel.

It's new but it looks incredible, truly a strategic scope.

I'm never going to buy this because I own all of its components except Yuri's Revenge, and Renegade.

In terms of gameplay Generals bears more resemblance to ...craft games or Age of... games than previous C&Cs.

There is a third Tiberian game coming out (4th if you count Renegade).

If you get the ProGen mod, you also get to play each side's "Boss General".

That would be really cool. Unfortunately, each GLA vehicle with scavenge ability can only obtain 2 specific upgrades, unrelated to the destroyed vehicle you picked up the remains from.

Haha yeah the first time I ever played as Nod I noticed that I couldn't build a Barracks, so I decided to build a "Hand of Nod" just to find out wtf it was supposed to be et voilà, I was able to train Minigunners and Rocket Infantry.

Yeah they should bring back Kane.

...and then send infantry all over it

That's what everyone else has said. Maybe if i ever played the game i would agree, but i have no idea what it's like so i can't compare.
