Summary: For me, C&C Generals was succeeding a very well made RTS, Red Alert 2, even though its a different type of C&C title. Although I do not believe overall that Generals is a better game, it is still a decent game and fun to play. It also importantly includes 2 great features, Online Multiplayer and a map editor. Online is fun against other players, challenging, and usually the connection is pretty solid.
Summary: The first C&C game that started the RTS genre became history to the fans of C&C but not for its gameplay, buggy AI, graphics and sound. It wasn't until C&C Red Alert that fixed most of the issues from the first C&C. Gameplay is difficult and unbalanced as well as lack of stereo sound and music. I never got to play this game until it went freeware several years ago which also had unofficial patches involving high resolution.
Summary: Being released in 1995, it obviously doesn't hold up as well as it could. But at the time, this game was awesome. If you're a fan of games of that era and you can stomach the troublesome interface, then check out C&C1.
Summary: Wow, this game was incredible back in 1995 when I was a sophomore in college. My friends and I were in awe even with its DOS talking installer. The game was rad. Sure, there were bugs, multiplayer were iffy, etc.
Summary: Command & Conquer is truly the definition of what a RTS game should be. Not only that, it still is the pinnacle the RTS genre and started one of the greatest series of games in gaming history. I remember getting this game way back in 97 and playing it for hours. Even my dad played a lot too.
Summary: I got this game when I was 8 years old, and didn't put it down for a few years. Though its hard to run on my PC now, I still manage... I still remember everything from when I was younger. I have 3 copies now, I lost one of them, bought one at goodwill, and then got another for Preordering C&C 3!
Summary: Does so many things right. The 3 teams you can play as (USA, GLA, and China) are all well balanced, and have very unique units and abilities. The skirmish feature gives a lot of replay ability to the game, and can give you a well challenge when you crank up the AI. The story feels like an actual military conflict, even though this is set in the early 2010s, and you're sitting 4 inches away from a computer screen.
Summary: The gameplay was great, the weapons concepts; Mammoth tank, oblisk of light, orca etc. were ingenious. The well scripted, entertaining mission briefings and other movies were the icing on a very nice cake.
