I haven't played Generals in ages, but I remember not liking it.

I think it was the max zoom-out. If I remember, I always felt like I was seeing too little of the battlefield - the view was always too close. So while a lot of features were pretty cool, I felt like I wasn't seeing enough at a time.


But RTS games haven't been my thing since the days of late night Warcraft II over a phone line. Or TA, but TA sometimes lost me with its massive maps and no fog-of-war building memory. Can't wait for SC, though, if it's just TA with that fixed I'd love it.
edit - that, and the emptiness. TA always felt empty, barren and lifeless to me. The music just added to it. I felt like I was watching insects, not armies. Distant. But the game was good enough to surpass that.
