Summary: I originally got Supreme Commander (Vanilla) back around 2007 whenever it first appeared in store shelves. I didn't think much of it at the time, I thought it was too hard, too complicated, and too demanding on hardware. I didn't have a proper appreciation or understanding of games like this at the time. Fast forward years later. I saw Forged Alliance and as a curiosity tried it around 2012. Something just clicked then.
Summary: Amazingly fun game. Not going to leave another long review of the game, but it's worth getting and trying (especially at this price). Still incredible in both game-play and graphics (somewhat) even after 10+ years. Download FAF to access the online community since the native SC online support is no longer supported. No bloatware Steam!!!!! Major plus, and the reason why I returned the complete SC collection to get this.
Summary: The expansion is a must have if you even kind of liked the base game. The UI gets some much needed improvements, and experiment units gets balanced out to not take an entire base a lifetime to produce. They become very standard in the expansion leading you to often need 5-15+ experimental units to win the war.
Summary: This game for the price is dangerous. I found myself time warping to 3am at night wondering where 6 hours went. A friend of mine said he played it but only when he had a big chunk of time. I could not help but be curious and of course curiousity killed the cat. After the first week and a half I learned to treat this game with a lot more respect like fire. I am careful not to start a session unless I have no expectations for many hours.
Summary: I love RTS games, and this is my second favorite RTS behind Company of Heroes. The game mechanics are unique and well thought out, and the massive scale battles are second to none. You should have a very good internet connection (20 mbps min) and a quad core processor to get the most out of multiplayer battles. Once you get over 500 units in play, you'll appreciate it.
Summary: If you are a fan of Total Annihilation, buy this game; don't listen to negative reviews which I will debunk in this review. Also, at the current cheap price of this game and the expansion, it is a steal; it's definitely worth the price. Don't even think about, buy it, so cheap. WHAT MAKES THIS GAME GREAT: The strategy is far more interesting and complex than any other RTS game to date.
Summary: Supreme commander is a lovely RTS game with so much built into it. Great campaign, great gameplay, however, the AI left something to be desired. Since Forged Alliance came out, I've seen many improvements that the first lacked, as well as superior elements that are a massive impact in the way you play, such as dual-screen abilities, a superior "HUD" if you'd call it that, and several other things too.
Summary: Better than the first! It's much more challenging than the first one. It's harder to win and really does require efficiency and strategy! It also felt better done as a whole. I love how the maps expand to an unprecedented leves in this expansion pack. You're on some part of a map you fulfill a mission, it expands, expands and expands and expands!! In one mission!
