A truly awe inspiring package, the Total Annihilation Commander pack combines Total Annihilation, winner of Game of The Year, 1997, "Greatest game of all time," and over 50 other awards, with its two challenging, deadly, and wonderful expansion packs, The Core Contingency, and Battle Tactics. Top that off with the official 200+ page, straight from the developer, hints guide and you surely have a winner!

Even us editorial types can appreciate the greatness with which Total Annihilation was crafted, making the also great Warcraft series look like a mere child's game.

The ups include exceptional graphics, rich sound, a multitude of maps, missions, and battle ready units. The hint guide is also a major plus as it always helps the gamer in his or her quest to "Beat the Game." The few downs includes it taking up over 100MB of hard disk space, the need for a descent video card, and at least a Pentium 133 recommended. So all of those 486 gamers won't be able to have a whole lot of fun with this one as it will fill your hard drive and the odds are that it will not run on a standard 486 system.
