Total Annihilation: Kingdoms under Virtual PC

I do not like this game.  It’s funny – cause I like the original Total Annihilation a lot (as discussed here) – but I just don’t like this game.  TA: Kingdoms uses exactly the same engine as the original game, with different skins and a different story line.  But the nice looking mechanical animation of the robots in Total Annihilation looks more like bad puppetry of the human characters in TA: Kingdoms.  Also, while the camera angle used worked great for tanks it is really bad for infantry (is that an archer?  I don’t know I can only see his head and shoulders).

As it uses the same engine as Total Annihilation it runs just fine under Virtual PC.  I picked up my copy of this game for $2 at Frys a year or two ago – and I believe that you can still find it floating around in bargain bins if you really want it.
