Summary: I have supreme commander two for the xbox 360 and i love it! so i searched for the original and read that it had some differences in game play. i purchased a it and tried it out, once i got to more than ten units and buildings on my map it started to slow down. i know it is not my computer it can do a bit better than that. every time i built my army up to a good size (around fifty units) i could barely control them the game was so slow!
Summary: these games look like doss games but many of my friends like the simplicity of these games. you can zoom in to see the graphics of the items your building and creating but to me its like a dos game or like grand theft autos very first game.
Summary: I'm a huge Starcraft, Warcraft, and C&C fan, so you know where I'm coming from... Not since the days of Ultima have I seen so much hype for a game; it makes me wonder what the magazines actually previewed. This game has a rediculously huge flaw - although the maps are indeed massive, the game is completely unplayable if you are zoomed in to see the detail of the units.
Summary: I was a great fan of Total Annihilation. I'm a fan of the RTS genre in general. I played SupCom online for a couple months but ultimately I have to confront the fact: This game stinks. I desperately tried to enjoy it but I can't honestly suggest it to other people. I played for as long as I did hoping it would improve with patches, and while they fixed a lot of technical problems, the gameplay problems still persist. The game *engine* is fantastic. It looks awesome.
Summary: People who have actually followed this game know that its very different from what it was claimed to be, both by Chris Taylor and the fans. I was expecting a game about grand manoeuvres, strategies, and intense battles, and I was expectant because it was supposed to be the spiritual successor to Total Annihilation, which was a great game, and one of the standouts of the RTS genre.
Excerpt: "...now. This being the case, Supreme Commander should blow all competition out of the water. Does it? Sadly not. Supreme commander is the latest offering from Chris Taylor, the genius behind Total Annihilation. However, it seems to me that he's a one trick pony, unable to break away from his previous success. I'm a great fan of Total annihilation, I've sat and played the game for hours on end without a break, determined to crush my opposition, I've ...
Pros: Excellent Graphically .
Cons: Requires high end PC to run, is almost Identical to Total Annihilation
Conclusion: I like RTS games but when a level takes hours to finish it's a bit much. I find myself having to save mid-level (as I have to go to work the next day), reloading the next day and the spending 15mins trying to remember what I had going on. I think the GFX are pretty poor too.
Conclusion: Sometimes I wonder if games reviewers have been playing a different game to the one I bought. I was brought up on simple but fun games like Command & Conquer. I also love games like Rome Total War, complicated, but absorbing strategy. This game just felt sterile. Your army just looked, how shall I put it......rubbish, everything looked the same, no character to it. This results in you simply not caring if they all get wiped out.
