I have only put 30 hours into this game, but have easily put 500 hours into the series in total. My opinion? Stay away. If you want large scale strategy based around modern/semi modern warfare, get Hearts of Iron 3. It is a better game in almost every way.

The SR series of games are large scale stragey games based in the 20/21st centruries.You control the economy, diplomacy, government and military of any nation you choose.

The problems with this game:
1)There is no tutorial (or at least not a very good tutorial). Be prepared to spend plenty of time trying to figure out how the game works (The economy is especially convoluted)

2)The territory system is a mess. conquering a country will often result in it being broken up and divided in the most nonsensical way possible.

3)The AI is abysmal. For Example: As Canada, I helped France obliterate Germany, barely having to cede land at any point (Hard/Hard/Hard), not because of skill, but because the AI does not understand how to use their armies properly.

4)As the game progresses, the performance gradually gets worse, until the game is unplayable. I have never been able to "finish" a game because of this, usually after 6 years the game runs so poorly that I have to quit.

The only positive thing that I can say about this game is that once you figure it out, the economic system is somewhat entertaining. You aren't able to transform a fledgeling nation into a super power overnight, and resources have to be carefully managed and balanced.

I like the concept of the SR series, but the games are not rewarding or challenging in a fun way. If you are thinking of getting this game, or any game in the SR series, make sure you try Hearts of Iron first. It is better in nearly every way imaginable.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE
I CANT STRESS enough how horrible this game is! historically speaking this is a sad attempt. The devs have abandoned this game so if you need help or want changes forget about it, it wont happen. i love the game but the devs have screwed it up beyond repair! The Ai is pathetic, my dog is smarter then it is! Germany declaring war on everyone when they have nothing? They must be as ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ as the devs! The ai is a joke! dont exspect any type of fight or intelligence on the Ai part, it wont happen! hundreds of flaws in this game because the devs have given up, i guess they just arent smart enough. if you have played 2020, stick with it, dont get this version because you will just get mad! the objectives in the game lead you to believe your doing something for rewards, mahaha. forget the objective, they mean NOTHING! victory points dont mean crap when your dead or you failed to beat someone(which only happens if your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥). the only thing the devs did when releasing this version was party with themselves knowing they scammed everyone with a "new" game...They changed 5 things and call it a new game, they remove things, and change things you have only half control over now. Debts, dont try to pay them back, your stuck for life with them. ♥♥♥♥ POOR attempt for a new game...

Supreme Ruler 1936 is supremely boring. I can think of nothing good to say about this game. The tutorial is poor, in game help is pathetic, controls are terrible, economy is broken, and snails move faster than this games speed. Even the card drops are slow.

I hate to "hate" on an otherwise good game, but it's such a HUGE part of WWII, that without it, this is way off from being Grand Stratagy. The tech tree is good, battles are a little boring, but all in all, good. There is NO supply chain though. There is for your forces on the ground (local level), but not in the big picture (country level). When Germany needs more oil, it can just get it instantly from Mexico, or anyone else who will sell it to them. Like wise, the German U-boats serve no real purpose (the Battle for the Atlantic doesn't exist) as you can't sink cargo ships and attack convoys as they don't exist. There is no real point to having/building/researching any submarines as they pretty much ineffective in game. But this single point is a show stopper for me.

Update to this from Battlegoat:

"While Supreme Ruler 1936 simulates the wide span of WWII, like other games of the genre we have strengths and weaknesses to what we can simulate in high detail. Naval is currently not a "specialty" of SR1936, though we do have every intention of continuing to improve this area.

-- George / BattleGoat."
