fun game, frustrating to make work

Summary: While this game is almost exactly what I was looking for, it is really frustrating to make it work on a Windows 7 64 bit computer. I have to reduce the amount of processors and memory being used and reboot just to make it work.
Summary: this is the second time i have owned this game, had it previously on my old computer running windows xp. This time while trying to install it on my new laptop i ran into several problems, at first i couldnt get the game to launch after installing it and i couldnt figure out why, well after hours of...
Summary: I love C&C generals zero hour despite the fact that it is filled with cheaters and have no support anymore (if it ever was any support to speak of) Reason for this , is not graphics, but gameplay and strategy depth.
graphics are nice. game controls & storyline kinda sucked

Summary: The graphics were amazing. By zooming in an arc to the ground level, the details are better than Command & Conquer Generals. On the other hand, the game controls are just not good: they're very confusing.
Much potential for this game yet there is something missing

Summary: There has been a long comparison between this game and the game C&C Generals. However, I find some aspects in the westwood rts line that made it great not in this game. One aspect that disturbs me is that you can skip through missions. That turns off all of the fun right there.
Good game, but not that great. Beware of system spec

Summary: This game has good graphics, great cut scenes and the terrain and units are very well detailed, But it is not as great as some people are saying. What i don't find good in this game is the movement of the units, they move very choppy, not as smooth as in Generals.
Summary: I love the Command and Conquer series of games, and so it was with great aplomb that I installed Act of War. With 5Gb of data, it must be an extensive game packed with missions... or so I thought. The scenario is that an unknown terrorist faction has declared war on the Free World.
Conclusion: Glossy command and conquor clone, decent although lackluster single player game, but it won't hold your interest for long. The game centers around resources, early acquisition of them, and base/tech management. Command troops, tanks, planes and nukes.
