Report RSS C&C Generals 2: Excited but Concerned

Posted by on

I am excited that the long awaited sequel to C&C Generals is now in development! However there are a few concerns that I hope get sorted out before its release in 1.5 years. Otherwise I may have to sadly boycott it just as I did with C&C4.

I just hope EA has learned their lesson from their past mistakes.

To the game developers I have a few notes for success:

DO:
Keep the gameplay and atmosphere of the original game.
Add new units, missions, and "gameplay innovations" that would ENHANCE the original concepts.
Add a more DIVERSE and INNOVATIVE singleplayer mode.
(Also Look at the old C&C games that feature a map that allows you to select up to four different missions in the singleplayer campaigns.)
Keep Skirmish & Generals Challenge!
Add Naval Warfare!
Add Global Conquest Mode!
MAP MAKING SOFTWARE & MOD SUPPORT IS A MUST!
And bring in both Bill Brown & Frank Klepacki to compose for the game!

DON'T:
Cut out the core gameplay mechanics.
Add half-naked women in every cutscene and mission briefing.
Make ridiculously over-saturated cartoon styled graphics.
Force players to always play online even in singleplayer missions and skirmish mode.
(The fans like to play C&C games anytime, anywhere WITHOUT the leash of an active internet connection, thank you very much!)

Follow these guidelines and this will be the best C&C game ever!

This always amuses me regarding the EA Origin:

I agree that Origin is bad news. Hopefully things will change before the 2013 release.

No half naked women? No no, you have it wrong, what EA failed to do, was have good looking women. Have you ever played Red Alert 2? All the female actors were all porn stars. West Wood knew how to do it right.

I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING BRO!!!!!!!!!!! EA MUST throw away those cartoonish-like units and add them some realism!

I'll also suggest EA to make all the RA2-YR civilian buildings and convert them into some kickass nice detailed 3D models.

So sad my fears were confirmed... we will never see the new Generals game now.
