Ten hut! The creators behind Xenophobe and Rampage take their distinctive sense of humor to the barracks with General Chaos. The game involves two teams of soldiers (led by warring brothers General Chaos and General Havoc) in an effort to outduel each other through three campaigns.
The winner is the player who finally takes control of the enemy's capital, although points can be earned from claiming territory, collecting loot or killing soldiers. First choose a squad of five offbeat grunts or two commandos, then lead them to victory by using their strengths in combat.
Each squad member specializes in a certain form of weaponry: rocket launchers, dynamite, grenades, flame-throwers or machine guns. Control is different depending on the team of soldiers you choose, however. Squad movement involves switching to each man and giving him orders through a cursor system, while commandos are controlled directly with the pad.
General Chaos also lets you play with a friend on one of two modes: Head-to-Head or Side-by-Side cooperative play. If you own a 4-Way Play adapter, then up to four players can go at it at once! Having trouble with the game? Boot Camp will train you on using weapons, commandos, squad movement, medical staff and close combat. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
