A package full of ROCK! And a package full of Crip aka Rick404 aka the guy whoís been hunting me on MSN messenger for weeks. Stalker he is!

In this fine deal, youíll get 5, thatís right folks, FIVE games in one Zip! Only on TADRS.

Itís Crip vs. ROCK, on five different maps. It is also five very different games, but they have one thing in common Ė Short, Intense and No fooling around.
This is top notch learning value folks, you wonít find a better introduction to high end TA then this package.

Enough advertising already, on with the games!

GODS OF WAR Ė FFs rules the day. Rock and Crip show how to control airspace with the help of level one units and sweet, sweet unit control. The game never reach the typical late game, buildup-stall-boredom-put-Abe-to-sleep-mode that some people with WAY too much time on their hands like to see. This is a fast war and these two players are the Gods. Well, not Gods but at least they run the local franchise which is pretty impressive for a banned Canadian and a 250 Ibs Hulk from Gibraltar.

ANTEER STRAIT - My favourite game in this fine package deal. Longest one too, ironic isnít it? But, donít be fooled, this isnít a boring game. We have the rather safe then sorry ROCK down left, and the better take a risk then hide Crip up north. Fast air meets defensive Sea! Such a waste of good FFs. But, all island maps are a lottery and you never know in advance what type of unit will rule the day. Before the game ends, weíll see a lot of units, clever strats, sneaky moves (watch the activity at the corners in late game) and tons of action. BOOYA!

100 ISLES Ė You know what happens when ROCK and Crip play this map? Lemme tell you. They sink to their very lowest and start lying to each other, in order to kill each others confidence. Watch a few games on this map, with these guys and tell me Iím wrong. I dare you, I double dare you. They do! The lie worse then Zone regulars when someone mentions words like virginity in Main chat. SoÖ. ROCK and Crip lie, build skeets, exaggerate resources, expand, lie some more, attack, deny losses and throw some more high quality, confidence-sinking lies at each other. Learn from the proís kids, honesty and TA donít mix! There was some top notch unit control and strategy too, I might have forgotten to mention that.

GASPLANT PLAIN Ė Weakest card in the package, but still very good for learning purposes. ROCK tries the rush, cries a bit about GPP being his worst map and the scouts are off! Crip defends, plays safe and counters with some flashes that werenít built in the vehicle labs I build. Cripís flashes are heat seeking, bullet dodging, radar map patrolling EMG elite forces. Well, maybe the metaphor was a TAD exaggerated but hey, my flashes never act like his doÖ Some nice building and strategy thrown into the mix and you have a schoolbook example of GPP in the premiere league (thatís a soccer term, European referenceish)

METAL HECK Ė Shortest game youíll see on this map. Funnay! Not much of a game, but Iíll refer to exhibit A concerning long games and this particular reviewer. Short and sweet, just the way we like em.

Worth the download? If you have to ask, you canít afford it.
