Ships Ahoy: Zero Hour & Breakthrough

EA Games has announced that a pair of their expansion packs have shipped to stores. Both Medal of Honor Allied Assault Breakthrough and Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour have shipped. Word on Zero Hour is: "The first expansion pack to one of the best-selling PC games of 2003, Command & Conquerâ„¢ Generals, Zero Hour gives players more weapons, more power, new battlefields, three new single player campaigns, 15 new missions, and new game modes." The skinny on Breakthrough is: "Published under the EA GAMES(tm) brand, the new expansion pack for the critically acclaimed hit title Medal of Honor(tm) Allied Assault takes players from combat with Rommel in North Africa to the heart of Italy in the struggle to breakthrough the fortified lines of the Third Reich." Thanks Frans.

...reviews of MoH: Breakthrough and the general consensus seems to be that it's nothing special at all.

Yeah, those reviews really turned me off despite my interest in the historical aspects.

Got 0 Hour instead. So far the USA campaign has been a bit overwhelming (Need to control multiple sections of the map, not all new units properly introduced, etc.) but I have no doubt I'll get the hang of it soon.

I have to say that disregarding gameplay I prefer General's Hollywood-style depiction of "What If?" near-future-world scenarios so much more than WC's "A Cliche Every Minute" fantasy world. Just like the pseudo-tactical FPSs of old, the cheeky nod to realism adds that extra layer of immersion.
