Anyway , IMO then Total Annihilation: Commander Pack is like the mother or father of all great RTS games , there might
have been other RTS games before but Total Annihilation: Commander Pack had an outstanding quality that were far ahead of it's time, a quality that has made it a true classic...
Might? Too bad there's no global network of computers to look up such information.
Why bother when we have skilled and knowledgeable people like you around to do that for us...
But FYI then my reason for expressing myself the way I did were because I couldn't remember the chronology of it all , e.g. how far the C&C franchise had gotten when the TA game and it's expansions came out..
What I do remember is that I thought TA as one of the best RTS games of that time (I only got it in 2011 from GOG and while I think that I had main game on disc already and were mostly looking for the expansions in 2011 then I also remember how I a lot earlier found TA impressive compared to it's 'peers'....
There is a review by a user with handle 'n8mahr' over at the page : https://www.gog.com/game/total_anihilation_commander_pack
It's titled : Shunned by the press, loved by gamers! , go and read that if you want (# 5 from top on my page)
Review above from 'Blarg' claims that 'it was 3D when games were still using sprites, including Starcraft. '
And so on and so on....
Anyway , I would rather have you take your fine discussions with someone else on the internet rather than I have to read a lot and reasearch more just to satisfy you. In an emergency then go satisfy yourself ...
My use of the word 'might' were also other than what you suggests , my use were like if I had written that while there were other games then..... (there might have been other RTS games but)
Thanks for the info......
That surprises me a bit, but I think that I know why I didn't buy it earlier. I probably still hoped to pick it up original game on CDs from another source.
So when I bought it as digital download - which I back then considered as inferior to having the game on discs I most likely did it because I had given up hope of getting the original game on discs (needless to say that I now prefer my digital download version - games on discs in boxes simply takes up too much space and takes too much time and effort to find when wanting to install and use - not to mention the annoyance of having to have the CD/DVD in drive every time it is played)
I also bought the game (both games, actually) in May 2011. It was on sale at the time (50% off). Probably weekend sale. So perhaps that had helped your decision.
Thank you :-)
You must have gotten the game cheaper than I my receipt from May 6 , 2011 says :
Total Annihilation: Commander Pack $5.99
order total: $4.19
Which as far as my math abilities goes is only %30 off
Anyway , I have no regrets about the price , it was money well spent :-) (Thanks at GOG for that)(Great game)
