      Disadvantages

      play for fun

      This is a RPG game,strategy and tactics,kind like C&C:generals Zero hour or Warchammer - 40000.The newest RPG with great graphic level,sounds,and many units to use,many ways to win the game and much other.
      It has 35 levels in singleplayer and some good terrains for multiplayer depends on how you`ll choose to play multiplay.This will keep us occupaited for many many hours.

      The minimun that you need to play this extraodinary game is :
      a CPU on 1.5 GHz
      512MB of ram
      3 GB of free disc space
      64MB of ram on graphic card
      and directx 9.0

      but if you want better graphic just need to have 2Ghz CPU and a better graphic with 256MB or the second way a 128MB graphic and 1GB of ram this will do the trick.

      Now something about the game :
      Who plays for the first time similar games or those who don`t know some units which is their purpose their is a cool help menu with everything that you need and some hints for how to use some units in combat.
      In this game you`ll have infantry,tanks,helicopters,planes and many like special abilities.Using the infantry is very usefull you can destroy almost anything with them.You can order them to go in a building an start firing from there or if there are enemy troops in a building you can using a helicopter drop your troops on the roof and take over the building.Hiding in a building is a very usefull stuff you`ll troops will live longer.There are some standard commands like in all strategy based games like patrol,this will order your units to watch an area and if enemy troops shows in that area you`ll units will automatically start firing on them.Usefull for protecting your base.

      There are 3 Forces : Task force , US army and Consortium.But in singleplayer we`ll have only one campaign but we`ll have the opportunity to play with all armies.

      One of the greatest new feature is prisoners of war.If you outrun the enemy you can capture them this will give you some instant money and some info on the enemy units that will be shown on your map.Very usefull if you`re low on money or if you don`t know what`s you enemy up to.
      I forgot to say it depends on which building you go into cause some building provide bonuses like if you go into a bank you`ll have money bonuses,or hospital healing bonus...

      This game is like all other strategies,create a base,find resources...but it gives us some new stuff,like new ways to get money (prisoner of war,banks,hostage rescue...)The armored vehicles are usefull but each has their weakness and powers so you can`t just make more then the enemy and you`ll win you`ll need to use for example apc against infantry,rockets against apc and so on on...You`ll find the best way during the play.

      I can say that the game is done very well.It has movies that will fill you with story info,and there are also in game movies with additional info for that mission.The effects are exellent,the explosions,details...I won`t say anything more cause i`ll spoil the game.

      Those who like RPGs like C&C Generals,must have this cause it`s much better you won`t be disapointed.
