Original Command & Conquer Generals required to play expansion pack.

"While no-one could dispute that Command and Conquer: Generals was a fine game, there was the mild irony that despite the game's name, there weren't actually any generals actually in it. Instead, there were general powers that you earned as you played. The Zero Hour expansion pack sees this omission redressed with the addition of actual generals to command your troops. And it's an addition that works wonders to give the game new personality and gameplay.

"The Zero Hour expansion doesn't introduce any new playable sides so much as it just reorganizes the sides it already has into focused strategies. For instance, the USA can be played as the Air Force General, Super Weapons General or Laser General. Or you can just play as the plain ol' USA. No matter what you choose, you'll find a lot of new stuff has been added since the original game: there are new units, abilities, upgrades and general powers."

"All told, Zero Hour is a great example of how an expansion pack for a real-time strategy game can add a lot of new playability without necessarily adding a lot of extra stuff. It might seem spare when you consider it consists mainly of tweaks and minor additions, but it makes Command & Conquer: Generals play like a new and much better game."
