    Don't think there's very many RTS games like CnC! Maybe Empire Earth 2 (not great)!!

    Comand and conquer : Tiberian sun was good back in the day it was out. But it was terrible online. So offline. Just had fun playing in lan.

    Star Craft is a classic, and still a good game.

    I used to play Age Of Empire II when i had my 166 and 300 mhz , now it makes me sick :/

    AoE II just looked horrible but was good in it's day. AoE III? Dunno' yet.

    Total Annihilation rocks and I still play it after all these years, plus it's like €5.

    Of the new ones out I'll be trying Earth 2160 'cos it looks cool :tup:

    I haven´t played TA the last years . I still have it with the Add-On Core Offensive .Still a great game with tons of different Units .

    I´ll wait till 9th of December ( in Germany ) to buy Earth Ultimate .
    It´s the complete Earth Series (Earth 2140 + Mission Pack 1+2 , Earth 2150 + Add-Ons , Earth 2160 , Soundtrack CD , some goodies , like Earth Universe Filofax , T-Shirt and 350 Pages Manual ). Costs only 59.95 € . That´s cheap for the amount of games you get .

    Here are some pics from the content (sorry , text is in german )

    What is Earth like SaD? Mechs? Tanks? Troops? Air vehicles? All 4?

    If it gets released in the UK, it sounds a good deal to me.

    BTW, theres a mod called Unreal Annihilation, based on TA, but it looks to have gone the way of the UC2 pack.

    Try Age of Empires 3, if your system can handle it (i would advise you to first get the demo and see if it runs good)!

    I tried their demo. I though the grafics were good, even exelent. But the gameplay is still bad.

    It would be time to see a StarCraft 2 now. With such grafics.

    And maybe the "new" Warhammer 40.000 game Dawn of War, it's nice...
    Same goes for the AD&D RTS Dragonshard...

    The RTS the Miko likes be. All the CnC tittles for many reasons. Funny death sounds, Plenty of awsome tanks, A twisted WW2 (we didnt have an Abrams or Apaches or Bradlies in WW2), The Mirage tank's Yuris revenge voice over (Arent the tree's lovely) , The Mamoth/Apocalypse Tank, Crushable infantry which is not in any other RTS, Its easily modable, Tesla Coils as weapons, UBER STRONG CYBORG COMMANDO!, Tanya, Borris, Rominov, General Carville, Crazy Ivan, The M.A.D Tank, Recon Bikes, The Ebil Oblisk of Light, The Orca, The Miniature Hornets the RA2 Aircraft Carrier uses, Uber Giant V3 missles loaded onto a common day 18 wheel truck, Disk throwers, Titans, Wolverines that seem to go faster than anything though its a mech, Preset explosives to literaly blow up bases without trying in missions, Attack Dogs, Demolition Trucks, Mind control?, The fact they didnt add a decent unit que untill Red Alert 2 but still used the almighty Side bar, The Ion cannon, and last but not least. The greatest thing of all cnc games. *Drum Roll* KANE!

    The Earth-series are great games, but my all-time fav is Dark Reign, I just love this one!
    It set new standarts in the year 1996, but unfortunately it doesn`t work on Win XP any more :(
    When I`ve time I`ll search for a patch :lol:

    I played one of the older strongholds but not the new one though is it pretty good?:confused:

    I like the warhammer too especially winter assualt the expansion to it. The ai is crazier than heck though.:eek: :mad:

    I also liked the dark reign 2 game good times.

    I also recommend to anyone thats intrested Ground Control 2 is a very good game its not too old it has beutiful water and graphics (they could of done better on vehicle explosion though) Instead of buildin bases you use dropships to send for troops and the way you get money is you kill value (so the more people you kill more money you'll have.
