A-Ten-HUT! Fall in, troops. General Chaos from Electronic Arts brings you one of the world's most consuming pas-times...War! This one- or two-player game of paramilitary pandemonium has something for just about everyone — speed and physical challenges, quick thinking and careful strategy, courage and ruthlessness, grim determination and old-fashioned dumb luck. Fight as one of two bitter enemy countries, Moronica and Vice-ria. It's just plain mayhem and really great fun.
You choose to lead the fight with either General Chaos or General Havoc in a battle for turf that will lead you from the shores of Moronica to the capital of Viceria. Go to Boot Camp to leam your batde tactics, choose to play against the computer or the chump of your choice, select your squad type and experience the joys of explosive combat.
The most important facet of General Chaos is your Squad Selection. Before you select your squad, you should first see if the attacking army has any special orders for the upcoming battle. This helps you decide which of the four available squads is best-suited for the military mayhem you will create.
Choose from the Assault Team, the Demolition Squad, the Brute Force Squad and the Commandos. Each squad has a unique combination of arms and personnel. The personnel are the Gunner, who sprays lead; the Chucker, who lobs grenades; the Scorcher, Mr. Flamethrower himself; the Launcher, who has a long-range bazooka; and the Bomber, who is dy-no-mite at creating chaos!
You can individually control each troop member's movement and attack. Medics are available to minister to battle injuries. The violence in General Chaos is quite strong, but cartoony enough to take the edge off for all but the most squeamish.
There's a campaign mode where you and up to 3 of your buddies can go against the computer in a set of battles with each proceeding one getting harder in difficulty and more of a challenge, for example, the computers main base only has one hard to get pass entrance. Then there is regular play where up to 4 players can team up or go against each other in combat play, and finally the last mode is boot camp, which is a training mode, so you'll get use to the game mechanics and adapt to the way of playing the game learning everything about all the units, calling out medics, etc.
The arcade/strategy game called General Chaos is one of my favorites ever. General Chaos and General Havoc had to fight on a limited world map and to conquer the other's capital city, which is kind of similar with Age of Empires, just that this 1994 release is not so complex and takes less time. There are four total teams the player can choose from. The player sees the action from an isometric point of view and has to guide his team not only through violent battles, but also through strategic missions.
