Re: PC GAMES..

I certainly wouldn't advice any Muslims to play Command & Conquer Generals. Even though its a great time with good graphics n all... it is highly anti-Islamic... for instance I saw in one episode....the part where the game controls itself before handing over the job to u (the player)... US helicopters... probably black hawks or apaches come and destroy a Mosque and its tower so that the tower falls on top of the so called GLA or GLO or watever's forces sitting down below (tanks and jeepz).... I hate it when these games try n play politics...or try and act against a particular type of people...they are games...and MUST remain games!
other than that...I liked Medieval Total War and Age of Empires and even Caesar 3 and Pharaoh... they're excellent and without any political offensive stuff.... any other games anyone wants to tel me about to try n play??? strategy only plz

well, that definitely doesn't reflect true combat. The Conventions clearly state that places of worship are off limits to attack.

Any US trooper/pilot who deliberately targetted a mosque would end up with 25 years in Leavenworth.

I can explain how targetting is determined and confirmed by military lawyers before a strike if you like - but only if you are interested.

You're right though, I can't stand games that take some poetic "license" with what happens in the real world - but after all, they're games I suppose, not actual tactical sims.

Do it in a training room and you fail the mission automatically.

Re: PC GAMES..

yeah I know that US soldiers are not allowed to deliberately attack places of worship but the game CLEARLY shows that happenin in the second or third stage I think...I deleted that game as soon as I saw that happening! So my point is....they are just games but man they're insigating wierd thuoghts in the mind of general public who play these games! Its similar to the scenario like NY Times and Washington Post tryin their best to instigate Iraq war before it happened by publishing exaggerated stories over Iraqi threats and now bent on defaming Pakistan over the nuclear scandal... I strongly think, things that are meant to do a specific job should stick to that and nothing else....games for entertainment and newspapers for info! (correct and accurate info that is)

Deus ex:invisible war

It is fun but not nearly as good as the original deus ex. They cut out lot of things that were in original and this one is full of bugs. I used to visit company's official forums and posters were quite angry about this latest game.

I usually played as GLA in C&C generals. When fighting computer opponent, the tactic i use to fight USA is to build 20-30 terrorist in the early phase of the game and place them in all economic area. each time the enemy move in to repel this terrorist, i'll make a suicide attack on the enemy groups. a single terrorist could easily take out 3 tanks in a row. It reduce the number of their troops and strip them of much needed resource for further development. once they are weak enough for lack of resource, then i move in and finish them of.

By the way the USA crusader is look like abrams type, while the Paladin look like a heavier design might be compared to merkava.

never played total war so dono. once you click on a vessel for trade it should give you options on what to trade and then you click on your allies or enemies to trade with?

Re: PC GAMES...(Defence/Military related)

Does anyone here play 'Counter-Strike'.. its the most popular online PC game ever.. basically you can play as either a Terrorist or a Counterterrorist.. If you play as 'T' your objective is either to plant a bomb in one of 2 bomb site locations, or to kill a 'VIP', or prevent Counterrorists to rescue hostages.. If you play as 'CT' your goal is to do the opposite - prevent bomb planting, secure bomb site, defuse bomb if planted, escort VIP safely to an area, or rescue hostages.. Its definietly the greatest online game Ive played. you never get bored, b/c each play is a different challenge.. anyone else?? I just got the newest version - Condition Zero..

There are NO vessels for trade in Medieval Total War man! Its more of a board game type on one hand and on the other its very different than a board game! So anyone who has played it please let me know how in the world do I make my ports earn some income?
