I played that to death years ago. It was really ahead of it time with the way that you could set aggression levels and patrol patterns and such. It was a very cool game for turtle players like me. Haven't played it in at least 5 years though.

I enjoyed it, far more than its sequel. The unit cap in TA was high for its time but at least it was still manageable. I remember the most memorable thing about it was its soundtrack, which I think was done by Jeremy Soule. The game as a whole was a bit soulless though in comparison to games like Starcraft, Warcraft, & C&C, a trait that carried on to its sequel.

Im not a video gamer that much, but damn. I LOVED this game so much a couple years ago. I love those games like age of empires and that. I dominated it so bad. Thats awesome that someone reminded me of it, thanks!

Great game, many fond memories of 8-12 hours sessions against my brother and/or the AI on fan-made maps. Great modding community for that game, some of the more recent mods push the unit cap into the thousands. Recent remake through a free-ware game called Spring as well, just google TA:Spring and it should lead you there. Makes TA entiely 3-D and, coincidentally, the TA:Spring community also has a thriving mod community.
