Excerpt: People who know real-time strategy games have been licking their chops in anticipation of Supreme Commander, the latest project from one of the genre's supreme gurus, Chris Taylor, for a long time.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The RTS genre, like many others nowadays, is one that is slowly burning out with a new game being released every other month.

Conclusion: Supreme Commander really could have been the finest strategy game ever to grace a hard disk. As it is, it&#Array;s still one of the most thrilling RTS experiences on the market and a superb return to the genre for Taylor and his team.
Conclusion: In truth, the slow opening of the game might discourage most players. Although the game does a really good job of tying in each of the campaigns, the storyline doesn't amount up to much. Still, that's not the point here.
Pros: Unit variety, AI, engaging gameplay, battles get tantalizingly epic, multiplayer, wonderful soundtrack;
Cons: Takes a while to get going, a bit demanding for mid-range rigs, mundane storyline.

Excerpt: Supreme Commander has been referred to as the spiritual successor to 1997’s Total Annihilation; a game way ahead of its time and one of my favourites. TA was made by the Cavedog who are no longer with us, but after their demise lead designer Chris Taylor went on to found Gas Powered Games.
Summary: En résumé, Supreme Commander est un jeu qui, malgré ses imperfections de présentation et de balance entre les unités, plaira assurément aux amateurs de RTS. La grandeur inimaginable des combats qu’il engendre et les nouvelles commandes qu’il introduit pour les gérer sont devrais petits bijoux.
