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 games are the standard C&C games that we all know and love. I bought this pack primarily for the tiberian sun game and expansion, so the others were pretty much bonuses and I haven't touched them yet. The elephant in the room with this though is that I couldn't get tiberian sun (the other games apparently have similar issues) to work just from installing it off the disk on a Win7 x64 box.
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.
