Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun, from Westwood Studios, is a real-time strategy contest between the Global Defense Initiative and The Brotherhood of Nod. The game contains many new units, more structures have been added, and constructive changes have been made to the multiplayer mode.

Kane, the leader of Nod, was thought to have perished in the last conflict but a sudden increase in the number of trouble spots around the world indicates that The Brotherhood is back with a vengeance. You take the role of either the fiercely dedicated Commander McNeil for GDI or the evil and battle savvy Slavik for Nod.

The two sides have almost no units in common between them, which makes for a unique conflict. Where GDI uses fairly conventional units and tactics, Nod concentrates its development on the sneaky and surreptitious. GDI marches into battle behind its powerful Titans, two-legged battle mechs that sport huge side-mounted cannons. Nod relies on its strange Tick Tanks which can burrow into the ground, making them much more difficult to destroy.

Both sides have a number of additional units as well. GDI can utilize missile-firing hovercraft, Wolverines (think Sigourney Weaver at the end of Aliens) and the powerful Disruptors that shake apart whatever they hit with sonic energy. Nod's sneakier units include the Devil's Tongue tanks that can travel underground, popping up to surprise the enemy, half-mutant, half-machine Cyborgs, and powerful artillery pieces capable of striking from long distances.

For defense, GDI relies on Component Towers, which can mount a variety of defensive structures. Nod still stands by its powerful Lasers and the incredible destructive force of the Obelisk of Light. Nod has also learned the secret of cloaking technology and can hide entire bases from enemy eyes. GDI, however, has access to mobile detection units that allow hidden structures and units to be revealed.

The story revolves around Kane's desire to change the entire world in his own image. To do this, he has sought out technology from a downed alien spacecraft. With this technology in hand, he has the capability of reshaping the planet itself. Only GDI has the manpower and the technology to stop him.

Both sides of the conflict have a full set of scenarios, many which contain optional missions that can make the main mission easier to complete. There are many different paths to the end, whether you try to conquer or save the world.

Tiberian Sun's artificial intelligence has been improved and an element of randomness has been added to the game. The computer will not always react the same way to the same situation and will often have multiple responses to any attacks.

Gamers who venture out to play human opponents will find a deep game with infinite strategies. Multiplayer games will tend to last longer than previous Command & Conquer games due to the difficulty of destroying an opponent completely. New options include the ability to re-deploy your Construction Yard and move it to new locations. Because of the unique nature of many of the units, there are virtually no limits to the strategies that can be created.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
