Command & Conquer: Generals for PC is another real-time strategy game belonging to the classic Command & Conquer series. The game is set in a near future, when humanity is facing another global conflict. Combined forces of the USA and China are standing against a terrorist organization known as the Global Liberation Army. The creators included three campaigns here, a separate one for each of the powers involved: the US, China and GLA. Each of the campaigns consists of ten missions linked together by a complex plot.


The game offers over 60 combat units. As the commander-in-chief of the US army, the player conducts quick and focused attacks, using modern-day units, such as Aurora fighter planes, Crusader tanks, or the approved Comanche helicopters and B-52 bombers. When leading the communist Chinese forces that are very large in numbers, the player commands huge numbers of infantry, as well as units such as seismic tanks, Inferno cannons, Hackers (an equivalent for the engineers from the franchise's previous installments), or propaganda blimps, which reduce the enemy soldiers' morale. As the leader of Global Liberation Army, the player does not command regular military forces, as in the cases of the US and China. Instead, one leads here a gathering of fanatics, dissatisfied civilians, mercenaries, etc. Among the units at GLA's disposal, the player can find such as Angry mob (a team of 20 people armed with Molotovs and AK-47 rifles), Technicals (a jeep with a 50 caliber gun mounted on it), or Scud storm, which is a rocket launcher.
