"Zero Hour is the best strategy game ever?"

Back in the day of windows 95 Westwood made a great hit called Command and Conquer. That was the best strategy game then and this is the best strategy game now. Command and Conquer Generals was one big hit because it was 3D and you can turn the camera angles and also cool effects. Well they forgot the coolest units in that game. So that's why they made this game. Zero Hour. With massive units and cool new weapons this is going to be the best expansion yet.

Gameplay 9/10
This game is challenging with 15 missions and around 70 challenge missions. You will be staring at the computer for hours at a time. Its not something you can just finish in an hour. You are going to be sitting in that chair for quite a while. So get comfortable.

Story 8/10
It has a pretty good story. Most of it is news people telling stories. Also when they are telling the news the game is loading so you don't have to wait some boring minutes for the game to load. The game also has fast loading times.

Graphics / Sound 10/10
The 3D graphics are the most best thing about this game. The first time you see this game you will be amazed. There is a lot of cool effects that the super weapons and units do that will make your mouth drop. The sound is about the same as Command and Conquer Generals.

Playtime / Replay 10/10
One mission can keep your finger glued to the mouse for an hour or 2. Some missions are fast but majority of the missions are long. Replaying is the best I've seen in a game. Other first person ones get boring after a while but this you wont want to stop. With skirmishes that you can configure and maps that you can make will make this game always different.

Final Recommendation
If you have Command and Conquer generals get this game for sure. It has about the same system specifications as C&C generals does. This game will take about a couple of weeks to complete if you play it a lot. But only start playing this game if you have a lot of time on your hands because it will get addicting and you wont want to quit. Also you can play multiplayer on the Internet if you are getting bored of playing against the computer and just like in C&C generals you have stats for online play.
