Mideast Crisis 2] (MEC2) is a total conversion for 'Command and Conquer 3 - Tiberium Wars' set in the near future, letting you use modern technology (such as the Abrams, F-35 and Hind) alongside future technology (such as Drones, Airships and Medibots) in a conflict ranging from Jerusalem to Beirut.
Simple to learn, hard to master mod! Mideast crisis is a RTS mod featured less on structure and harvesting rush and more on taking, holding and attacking points, the fuel system is excellent as it reduce the chance you can rush mass tank force as easily as the vanilla game. Cash point and collecting recourses makes it harder for anybody to sit tight and wait for money to cash in, you basically have to fight your way into hostile areas, massive buildings garrison with infantry and constantly bombarded and heavily defended position just to take a single cash point
I felt satisfied that there more close quarter fighting which using tanks is a big no no in urban ares which houses anti tank and anti infantry garrison. Its a lot harder to play as Guardian of Islam, which they lack anti garrison unit, so far i see. The team who made MidEast Crisis 2 made full use on the C&C 3 Engine, everything that should look right got better with high shader and strong bloom detail. Oh yes I can go all day telling how wonderful this game is. And how quickly the battle can turn tides, good details and strong multiplayer concept.
I wish to have some constructive criticism on the mod.The voice of Guardian of Islam is also somewhat lack of personality. Maps are somewhat felt smaller and tighter. These are the few minor problem for such a good mod.
Hell, well done! Wish to see your complete UN army for the upcoming version 2.0 :)
Israel with there mobilety and survivability
Guardins of Islam with more strenght in numbers and a good lategame
The only thing that i found disturbing is that the AI plays good at certain point of the map and at other spots ''not so good''
when the UN gets involved and the AI had some tweaks this would be a 10
Downloaded and installed this mod through Desura a while back and found it to be a great experience. The atmosphere and background is what really got me hooked since the detail put into making each faction unique in gameplay and in design. Production values and commitment is top notch rivaling that of professional game development and I would gladly pay for this as a stand alone game with single player if that was the direction this mod team sought.
