I'm excited for this game. Hopefully it will be another attempt at a Battlezone 2-style game, with FPS and vehicle combat, along with RTS elements. IMO, Battlezone 2 is still one of the greatest games ever
Battlezone 2 got pretty good reviews but it failed miserably at the marketplace. But a C&C game of a similar design would be more likely to succeed since it's an established franchise.
I think they need to offer all the complexity that Battlezone 2 offered, but for players who want a simpler experience, they need to offer that, too. Perhaps different difficulty levels could accomplish it. I'm thinking on Super Hard mode, the player would be required to operate vehicles, be an FPS soldier, while also playing a simplified RTS game. All at once. On easier modes, you could progress through the game on any individual aspect of the game. So if you're an FPS fan, you can play it as a pure FPS. If you're a vehicle combat fan, you play that. If you're an RTS, you play that. But on super hard, you have to play all three.
Maybe the AI would take over the stuff you don't wanna do.
The multiplayer possibilities are awesome, too. Instead of having 12 players all running around as individual soldiers (boring and done to death), we could have just 4 players controlling squads of AI troops, vehicles, and so forth. All while being a part of the battlefield, too. It'd be like an RTS game but from a first person perspective.
