i've been considering getting this game because i used to play C&C games, especially Yuri's Revenge, how similar are the two games?

Not really similar, Generals is a bit more realistic, but it still has the old c&c gameplay.

I like the game a lot, and ive played it online a few times, but im not very good.

I dont understand what you mean when you say that is has the old C&C gameplay. The old right sidebar isnt there, which is pretty much what defines a C&C game.

have you tried the demo for C&C 3? it came out a couple of days ago.

no, actually, the graphics are very adjustable. If you can play generals you can with no doubt play cc3

I love Generals. I was actually considering playing it in a few minutes, but I might now go find that demo of Tiberium Wars instead.

Generals is a million times better with the Zero Hour expansion though. Zeall, when you get it, make sure you get the expansion also. I've played all the other C&C RTS games and Generals is definitely my favourite.

It's fairly different from the usual C&C style actually. The traditional method of acquiring money through some kind of harvester has been mostly replaced. You do collect supplies with either workers, chinooks, or supply trucks, but these run out fairly quickly. You're then left to make money from other sources depending on your faction. China uses internet hackers, the US and GLA use buildings that generate cash, China can also steal it directly from other players and the GLA can earn a percentage of the cost of everything they destroy.

The building system is totally different. You now use bulldozers to build, or workers for the GLA, and you can build anywhere you send your bulldozer. I think it's substantially better than the old C&C method.

You now create your units by clicking on the respective building. As you can see they implemented several Warcraft like changes that make the game more user friendly, in my opinion.

The bulldozer system is worthless. The building/training sidebar to the right IS command & conquer.

The building/training sidebar to the right IS command & conquer.

So? That just proves that Generals is better than the standard C&C build system.

I downloaded the demo for Tiberium Wars. Time to see if I can run it.
