Original Command & Conquer Generals required to play
Games Domain by Giles Bird
"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."
