Definitely one of the best ZH mods in terms of models and textures.

The best mod for C&C Generals Zero Hour.It was the "mod of my dreams". E.g. I imagined a sniper who never reveals himself (unless spotted by radar) (Assasin), a SCUD(Elbrus) Launcher with unlimited range (Prince Kassad's Elbrus Launcher), a dual Nuke Launcher (Bertha, although it will be replaced with the Yanwang) a gattling tank firing anti-tank shells (Shaitan or Guan Yu).Also, I like the idea of the ranking system and, even more, the Super-units.It surely deserves a 10 ;)

A fun and ambitious mod which adds a lot of unique new content and a very distinct look and feel from the original ZH. Overall the mod focuses even less on realism and more on adding as many fantastic units and weapons you can imagine, but without going totally overboard.

Overall this is a pretty good mod, and the latest 008 release is a huge improvement over 007. Many of the unit designs are fantastic and creative and unlike anything you'll see in a typical Zero Hour mod, ranging from Cyborg infantry to giant robots to tanks the size of battleships, "real" nukes, and giant lasers which can intercept Nuclear missiles. While it may sound outlandish, it's fairly well-polished and balanced and never feels completely over-the-top. It also introduces some unique gameplay mechanics, such as tech buildings which rebuild themselves when destroyed, larger supply stashes, and requiring the players to rank up before gaining access to their most powerful units in their arsenal.

That's not to say it's perfect though. My #1 major problem with this mod is that the supply stashes have been made to have virtually infinite resources (almost $1,000,000 per stash versus the original $30,000). This essentially makes all secondary sources of income useless (hackers, oil derricks, supply drop zones, etc) and if you simply build 10 Chinooks or Supply trucks, or 20+ GLA workers - you'll pretty much never have to worry about running out of money. This makes the game feel a little dumbed down, and places emphasis more on just pure unit spam than careful resource management.

Aside from that there are a few issues of polish. Some unit voices and camos don't fit. Some unit models are noticeably better than others (though all models are now original and you won't find any of the 'mish mash' models from 007). the Challenge mode is currently bugged and unfinished, etc

Overall though while this mod is not for everyone, it has good potential and is one of the most ambitious mods for Zero Hour.

An awesome mod but in most cases doesn't work and causes the A.I to behave BADLY.

Absolutely super duper! People who don't like this mod call it outlandish (they don't know the meaning of the word)! It's challenging and interesting on so many levels! Thank you for making it!
