Along with Warcraft 2, this was one of my favourite RTS at the end of the 90s. I don't think the genre is as fun as it used to be.

Hi thanks a lot for putting this on here but can you maybe put on an ISO version too you see some people do not like to play "downloaded" games online for some it makes them nervous about the other people online at the same time(that's me) because of hacker and such(OK so i am paranoid but that's one of the reasons i like this site it never asks your credit/debit card number and you can well what I'm doing right now if you have a problem with it) and some times people just want something al most like the original way with a disk

Yes! Finally this is free here. Some thing that I should say to C&C fans is that although this game did come out one year before C&C:Tiberian Sun(the worst game in the series so bad in fact that some of my fellow fans had to be convinced to even watch me play through half the Tiberium Wars campaigns before they would even think of downloading them) it is(if you have played C&C:Tiberium Wars or C&C:RA3) the game where if you look closely you will see that both units and factions are modeled after things from this game AND it has ratings the same as C&C2 BUT here it is animated and there it is realistic so if you like the C&C game you will love this too.

This Game is abandon ware AND freeware. In fact the only reason I am writing this is because I don't download stuff from the websites that have made a lot of gruesome and gory games...I had a bad experience once and I DO NOT like to talk about it or repeat that or experience it again but because it is freeware you can download or more they should download it well upload it in fact the only reason that i have not downloaded it from that is the other old games website they have less games but they come with install instructions) is that I am having some big problems with my router and I am not able to connect to it but in the mean time this web site can fined out what games on there are freeware and put them on here it is a win win I can get more games from here and here gets more games see how that would work.
