This game is the only one I tried that really needs dual or quad core processors with top performance video cards supporting them. IT'S HUGE! THOUSANDS OF UNITS BATTLING OVER GIGANTIC MAPS WITH SHELLS AND EXPLOSIONS EVERYWHERE! It's the only RTS that can show you the chaos of the modern battlefield. Unfortunatly, even with the latest 1.0.3220 patch the 90% of gamers cannot play it (STEAM statistics).
The rest of the game isn't so revolutionary: normal game scheme, old interface (except for the order queue that IS REALLY COOL!) and no research tree.
