IMG Previews Command & Conquer: Generals
10:48 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG's D.G. Chichester recently got his hands on a beta of Command & Conquer: Generals and has written up an extensive hands-on preview of the game. C&C: Generals was declared gold today by Aspyr Media and will ship on April 16th.

Here's a clip from the preview:

Command & Conquer: Generals (or simply Generals for our time together here) is the latest real-time strategy blitzkrieg in the C&C series. In real-time strategy (RTS) games such as Generals, you command multiple military units ó from individual soldiers to squadrons of attack helicopters ó in mission-based objectives; at the same time, your opponent(s) unleash their war machines with the goal of wiping you off the virtual Earth. Blizzard has been phenomenally successful with raising the bar in this genre with their Starcraft and Warcraft series of games ó but many will have ordered their first troop movements in the original C&C.

C&C has long been missing from the Mac scene, and those looking for a fix of the seriesí trademark, over-the-top weaponry and military melodrama have had to resort to awkward Playstation ports or envious looks over the shoulder of our PC brethren. Aspyr is seeking to rectify all that with the fast approaching release of Generals on the Mac. Iíve been embedded with a beta preview of the title, and Iíve just returned from the front to tell you this is a game with serious firepower. But like in any war, thereís a price to pay for victory.

To check out the preview, including some in-game movies, please follow the link below.
