Total Annihilation was named by some critics and magazines as the 1997 Game of the Year. It was a real time strategy game in the grand tradition of Command & Conquer and Warcraft II. Rabid fans of this rather overpopulated genre couldn't get enough of this game. And just like C&C and Warcraft II, which have had many, many updates and expansion packs, comes Total Annihilation - The Core Contingency. But this is no ordinary expansion pack...
Total Annihilation - The Core Contingency seems like a whole new game, or at least a sequel to Total Annihilation. Here's a "short" list of what's been added for you TA fans: 25 new missions for both the Arm and Core groups, over 75 brand new units, a map and mission editor and a whopping sum of 50 new multiplayer levels. The Internet play, probably the main reason this game is so popular to begin with, now allows players' to play against the computer AI. Needless to say, if you loved Total Annihilation before, The Core Contingency is a vital CD ROM for your collection. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
