Summary: This is not going to be a game review beyond me saying, THIS IS GREAT! I love the generals games but the others are worth playing through. What i am here to say is that this game does work on windows 7 if you load it correctly!
Summary: This game is purely glorious. Well. Compilation, since it's all of Command and Conquer up to Generals Zero Hour. Befitting of its name, The First Decade contains all of the wonders of the series that was once declared the King of RTSes. Well, with the exception of Tiberium Twilight, it still is, but... Let's forget about that abomination.
Summary: The game is advertised as an XP compatible game. I like many other customers presumed you could just go into the Win 7 compatibility mode and run the game in XP. This was not the case, after a somewhat lengthy period of time troubleshooting the Win 7 compatibility mode I was able to play some of the games. It was somewhat frustrating that almost every one of the games required different settings in the compatibility mode.
Summary: Yes, you can get these games to work on (32 and 64 bit) Win7. It was so cheap that I figured if I get it to work, great. If not, no huge loss, this is the first game I've bought in probably over 5 years. That right there says something, how much I loved these games as a kid and still enjoy playing them. I probably spent about 5 hours of surfing the net for various patches, configurations and methods to install/run the programs.
Summary: These are excellent computer games; however the issue I had is with functionality as most had running issues. C&C and Red Alert had screen corruption in terms of colour. Renegade couldnt start. However the the Tiberian sequels and Generals did function.
Summary: If you are a C&C fan, then this is a must buy. I still enjoy playing these games. It does however have a lot of bugs/glitches as you have probably read in other reviews. Luckily for you there is a patch out there that fixes the majority of the issues with this title. EA have released a couple that don't really solve all the problems, but an unofficial 3rd patch has been released by some hardcore fans that pretty much does the job.
Summary: I enjoy many C&C games and this has 10 of them. some earlier ones on the disc dont play well on new technology in new computers but my favorite ones play fine, so no big deal. still cheaper than buying individually. I received my game promptly with excellent and prompt email feedback from the seller.
