An okay action game hidden under a non-RTS RTS title.
I wasn't impressed with the AI of my platoon either. There was plenty of micro managing. So much so that it made me feel like our "highly" trained United States of kick butt and take names army troops were dullards. Leave them alone for a few seconds to scout out a drop zone or laser bomb a building and you come back to half of them gone because they weren't smart enough to target tanks instead choosing to chain gun troops while the Russian tanks made easy work of them. Gorgeous layouts though. The graphics are top notch so if this is your thing, you'll love this game. And the sound is satifsying. Nothing like calling in some Nape and then pulling back to your platoon and listening to the "whoooosh" of the hell fire that was unleashed. Tread lightly and don't believe the hype. If you are looking for a fast paced RTS or any semblance of an RTS other than being able to control troops from the sky, pass on this. If you are looking for an action game that allows you to control troops from the sky and let you decide what to bring into battle, then this'll be for you. Me? I'll go back to C&C3 and wait for SC2.
