Summary: I love this game I just wish they had kept making and improving it. My computer crashed and I lost the game so I bought a new one because I had installed the old one with all the updates and threw away the instructions, Bad idea which had the Key to unlock the game, so I had to buy new one which is...
Summary: I liked the game, I played it it a lot. I still play it sometimes. I like Warcraft/Starcraft type games, such as the C&C line,etc. This game got less than favorable reviews online for being short and not all that replayable.

Summary: Act of War: Direct Action comes out 2 years after C&C: Generals, so I'll make my comparisons to that excellent benchmark game. There are two major improvements that AoW has over C&C:G. First, the plot is far more immersive.
Summary: Would be nice if you could play as the "bad guys", not just on the U.S. forces side. Haven't played on the most difficult level, but on normal, it's rather easy to build up a strong armored force and just rush the enemy. Not a huge challenge, but still a decent amount of fun to play.
Summary: I have played both the C&C as well as RA2 and Act of War is as good as it gets. This may be the game that the other RTS games were trying to achieve. The graphics are spectacular, maybe an 8 out 10 (even better if you have a PC that can keep up).
Summary: This game is O.K. The missions are easy, really easy. Please do play on the hardest level. I can't even imagine how easy the easy levels could be. I only had to restart a few times and that's just because I wanted to "play" around and build a big and perfect army to attack with and would accidentaly...
Summary: Well produced, entertaining game that build on the RTS genre well. But it if you are searching for a game that involves any tactical skill or some difficult AI to come up against then try Rome: Total war because this one is lacking on both counts.
Summary: This is an enduring favourite, with some clever features other real time strategy (RTS) games lack (or rather, lacked - things have moved on). It comes with a range of great maps for solo play, and the storyline isn't as bad as some.
Summary: For a game released in 2005 I was pleasantly surprised by the graphics. The
unit models are nothing to write home about, but the environment is wonderfully
detailed, especially the city missions that bookend the game.
