Summary: Some folks didn't like this game....thought it didn't measure up to the original or Forged Alliance. Boy, are they wrong! I thought this game was great! Maybe the tech tree is a tiny bit smaller, but the game more than makes up for it with new, cool units, great graphics and effects, and awesome explosions.
Summary: This game is the absolute best RTS game you can play. And I have played alot of RTS games, so I know what I'm talking about. This game has very good graphics, and they will be even more enjoyable the more you paly the game, considering that you notice things like shadows cast by the terrain, and details such as distortion coming out of a walkers exhaust pipes. This game also has an amazing command system.
Summary: played it today and i've never played a better RTS. im lovin it every step of the way and although its a little bit more 'cartoonish' than the last one, its still definatly a fun epic story lined game. it beats AoE, UaW, and matches EtW, and C&C. i really love playing it and my slightly old system can handle it perfectly. i was a little disappointed, i though the requirements would be a little higher and i definatly see a decrease in the quality. overall, 8 out of 10.
Conclusion: I've been a long time fan of Total Annihilation, and when Supreme Commander 1/FA came out they were awesome. Tons of units, so many game features and functions, awesome base building and a decent economy that required some learning and skill to use. Kinda like TA but with some new features and nice graphics.
Conclusion: Overall a great game, designed to run on low end computers so runs really smooth, but its nothing like the original Supreme commander game at all, The "Experimental" units that you can build have far too low HP, poor damage and really slow, for example a spiderwalker can now be destroyed by a simple 10 tank squad.
Conclusion: I will rarely criticize a game publicly as I believe that it is up to everyone to decide for themselves, but after having experienced this excuse for a sequel to Supreme Commander, which in itself was a remake of Total Annihilation, I felt that I must say something. For all those who played the first one because they missed an RTS with lots of diversity and massive battles and thought that the developers did not do too bad a job DO NOT BUY THIS GAME they have failed...
Conclusion: if you want a challenge, like supcom or value anything good about RTS games this is NOT for you!!! i loved supcom and FA but this took less than 24 playing hours to complete and as for the tech system well...Surfisive to say its completely different the other most important thing is the economy is horrible if your used to supcom1.
Conclusion: This is fantastic game even if you just want to play the campaign but i get the fun out of this when me and my friends play a multiplayer match against some bots, its great fun. I never played supreme commander 1 and alot of people say that supreme commander 1 was better but i havent played it so i cant share my view. If your looking for a new strategy game with a bit of fantasy violence then this is worth every penny!
