What do think so far? Does EA think that they handle lightening in a bottle twice? Will we see a remaster of Tiberian Sun/Red Alert 2? I know that there's a lot of remastering of soundtracks to do. I like the sophomore effort in the sequels.
Yep, after my last post I closed my browser and was looking down at my C&C manual. I thought, "Crap I missed the Chinook". Glad you pointed that out Thor, and I completely agree with your statement as to why the name changing has occurred.
Stay tuned for more later. I probably shouldn't have posted this in the AAR section, as I'm still playing through the game...I have put in (currently 45 hours) but I am keeping a folder full of thoughts, screen shots, video, etc.
One of the first things I noticed while playing a campaign mission was the lack of numbers/totals during the debriefing menu. Notice my Purple question marks?
It also appears that Neutral Buildings and Civilian deaths have been removed as well. I'm not sure if this is an oversight or it was removed on purpose.
The next few screen shots are unit name changes from the original games, notice the Humm-Vee is now called a "Light Scout"
What was originally the Apache in C&C Covert Operations for NOD has now been changed to "Attack Helicopter"
Another helicopter change is the Allied Longbow which has changed to simply "Attack Helicopter"
It's a nitpick, but why the changes is unknown (at least to me). Oddly enough the MiG, Yak, and Hind or any other unit (that I'm aware of) haven't changed. If anyone does know the reason please let me know.
