If only it had the amazing multiplayer of the blizzard games, then it would be a revolutionionary masterpeice. As is it has likely the most engadging plot and setting you will find in RTS; it could comfortably be a movie... perhaps not a very good movie, but a movie. Even if you can win the entire game with GIs, the downright coolness of all the other units make you want to win it with as many combination of soldiers tanks, aircraft and seacraft as possible. The cutscenes and installation graphics make it what it is. Compare it Generals which should be a great game, but instead is easily forgetable beccause of its non-present plot. Despite my earlier knock, multiplayer is still pretty good all things considered.
