[Talk about one late-*** review, but hey!]


Storyline - 7/10:
Not the best conclusion to the vanilla game. Cliched in several aspects but hey, at least it's a decent effort that doesn't involve green crystals, psychic powers or time machines.


Gameplay - 9/10:
Arguably the most solid out of all the C&C games. Most C&C games often degenerate into spam-fests, but this doesn't really apply to ZH. Spam and you'll feel the pain; assuming your opponent isn't a complete dummy.

The addition of 9 sub-faction generals might seem to create a balancing issue (and as a matter of fact, it does if unpatched) but patches, in particular 1.06 can change this drastically, forcing players to be innovative with and against different generals. You won't find the balance of StarCraft: Brood War in ZH, but it's still pretty solid overall.


Visuals - 8/10:
ZH didn't really bring many graphical enhancements to Generals (it's an expansion pack after all). It's not too impressive when you compare it to WarCraft III, its competitor at the time. There are small graphical issues and strange effects at times, but a FPS adjuster for multiplayer games is nice. The musical tracks are composed nicely and fit well into their respective factions, so that's a plus at least. Although some sound effects do sound like they were recorded with a tape recorder, the voiceovers for many of the units are of absolute quality.


Moddability - 9/10:
Just like its 2D predecessors, ZH is a treasure trove for modders since almost everything in the game can be so easily modified with just a text editor; you won't need a fancy SDK to add a new faction or unit in-game. To make matters even better, there's a lot of unused prototype and alpha content that came along with ZH that wasn't previously accessible in the vanilla game. So really, it's no suprise as to why mods are still being made for ZH to this day, despite being almost a decade old.

Hardcoded limits do dampen the modding scene abit though

It handles large amounts of units well and has a lag-deterring time scale. The programmers did everything in plain text format so it is extremely east to mod.
