Strategies themselves are boring. That’s a fact – they excite us for a couple of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months or years, but finally we loose our interest. But it’s always nice, when you can come back to such a game and continue your adventures inside its imaginative and complicated-logics world.
The game called General is a successful example of such kind of strategy games. It creates a world, in which you are supposed to act as a general, less than a president, but greatly more than notorious Gordon Freeman. The number of your duties is unbelievably high. You should do everything, exactly, to make decisions “what to do”. You should decide, whether it’s worth to buy grain or not, whether your country (Russia, The United States etc.) needs scientists or militiamen and so on. You may start a war, you should protect your borders, you must feel like a real patriot and hate all the enemies. Simple multi-window interface with clear instructions for each button will make your career more successful without any additional efforts. The game has English and Russian interfaces. It requires Win98 or higher – and a user, who believes he or she is a general!
