Won't work on Windows 8
4 December 2013
Summary: It isn't compatible with windows 8. I tried trouble shooting it for several days by searching various blogs and websites for fixes, but ultimately the answer was that it would not run on my system. I'm sure it's an awesome game, but I'm disappointed it won't run on Windows 8.
Summary: There are a few problems yet remaining to be fixed with the upgrade. I've been playing the War of the Ring scenario, and it can get so frustrating. First, you have to wait for your units to come as reinforcements. Not so for the enemy. ALL the computer troops get to attack you at once. Secondly, you do not know where exactly the enemies may be. ALL of them know exactly where you are.
Conclusion: i cant comment on if this game is worthwile getting in regards to the non collectors addition...but i can say that this game is really poor in my opinion. if you are a fan of command and conquer (as i am), then i feel that this wouldn't be for you. i just got annoyed that you have a cap on the amount of units you can build, i feel that this ruins the game slightly. if you could build a huge army then this game would be far more better!
