Our Comments:

One of the best games ever. Personal favorite that I’ve dumped countless hours into. The music is beautiful, the campaign is serious and engaging, which was a rare thing to do well with RTS games, especially of the era. If you have never played this game and are even remotely into real time strategy games, you really ought to try it. The HD edition that’s available is high quality.
