I love this game, I stumbled upon it years back now and I was so happy to find it. The game is very In depth and is the type of game where you can do anything you want in the game. There is alot to it so take your time but you can learn it. Not everyone is goin to like it, but if you like strategy games, like C&C or othe planetary control type games this is what you have been waiting for, I mean everything from government control, resource management and development, diplomacy, trading, military, soical spending, space race, researching units and tech on huge tech tree of detail and scale and to top it off, you can be any country in the world from the small island nations to the USA, China, Russia, France, and England - and there resepcted colonies of the time, also there is many other small and medium sized countires which are independent and playable from a very unique perspective. Military production and personell are under your direct control or you can let the AI do the work, you have a load of options on how they approach through user controlled to cpu/minister control also there is options for how agressive and how many casualities you should sustain during battle. There is setup-up options galore for the map, you can win by economic, military, sphere, complete and many more options so the game is playable at many angles and replayable (try being Ireland, Liberia, Haiti, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and more) Also the historically acurate points of hisotry will/should kick in i.e. 1939 invasion of Poland, Austrian takeover, Rhineland re-occupy, Invasion of france and Russia, now For military building and deployment there is a very thorough and detailed unit line up with historically accurate units of the period army, navy, airforce.

check out my youtube intro video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGyyWcdhjXk&feature=youtu.be

If you like hearts of iron 3 - this is a shoe in and I personally prefer it over HOI

This is a very detailed game - and it is not a resource hog untill mass units (keep fog of war on) -

Great Value at $30.00

It's in beta and this is just the beginning so Its only going to get better, with your constructive involvement with the fourms.

Live Long, For give me 100,000 men and I shall conquer the world.

I stumbled upon Supreme Ruler 2010 years ago and ever since then I have been hooked on the Supreme Ruler series. Having played the previous titles and almost 60 hours of 1936 I can say the game is great so far even with the current beta issues. The issues which are to be expected as the game is still in beta do render the game unplayable and require you to start over but when the issues’ happen you can report them and usually find a way to avoid it in the next game until a patch is released. I myself have reported a few issues and made a few suggestions all of which the developers took note of and added to their system. The gameplay in of itself can seem overwhelming to new players but if you spend the time learning to manage your economy, military, technology and diplomatic relations you will find the game very rewarding and challenging. My favorite aspects about the Supreme Ruler 1936 excluding the gameplay right now would have to be the ability to mod the game, the ability to communicate directly with the developers, the amazing community, and the lack of any anti-piracy system screwing up or limiting my ability to enjoy the game.

Stalin Reviews: Supreme Ruler 1936 is a game that I wanted to get for a while, but its 30 dollar price tag made me have doubts about getting it. One day after a day of ruling USSR I decided I should get it. It turned out to be one of the best games I have EVER played. Yes there are some VERY VERY VERY annoying bugs (I.E. Units wont do what you tell them to do) But once the game works it is a amazing. I played as my country, the USSR and I can tell you it was a expirance unlike anyother. Taking over all of europe then attacking America? It was amazing, Challening, and it feels good to see your super nation take over everything. 95/100 Recommended To Everyone.

supreme ruler 1936 is a rough gem, i would recommend it to people who love RTT games like command and conquer.

the good;
-extended tech tree with technologies and units that go to around 2150.
-good simple and very functional economy, though it takes a while to understand it.
-good logistics system that may be a little obscure to understand

the bad;
-unit controls, it still suffers badly from a lack of good management option for your units, your battlegroups are overly simplistic and it can take hours to create a functional OOB for a major nation only to see it destroyed within a few days of combat as the units throw themselves away against entrenched defenders one by one.

This game has a lot of potential! It runs much more smoothly than other Supreme Ruler games, Although my only problem was that the GUI when playing in-game was a little too big for me. Although other than that the game is just fantastic!
