The Supreme Ruler series is one of the best grand strategy games you can find on Steam.

I started out with Supreme Ruler 2020 and played the hell out of it before and even after the Gold version came to Steam. With Supreme Ruler 1936 you not only get a better optimezed engine that can handle even more units and events than the previous one, but you get a time period that is extremely interesting to play in the Grand strategy scenario.

While the game might not look like much (graphics wise), it makes up for it with its superb and in-depth gameplay. You are the ruler of a nation, you take all the important decisions and even command your troops into battle as you take the territory of your enemy bit by bit.

What I like about this game compared to other Grand Strategy games is that while it is hex based, the style in which your units or the enemy units capture a territory is shown in a more interactive way making it feel like your actions truly have a great impact on the world.

The tech tree is also something to be amazed of, each tech you unlock as you progress through the years has a significant impact on the game and how you play the game and if you are able to survive the onslaught of enemies.

The economy is also complex and at times quite hard to manage, luckily the difficulty level can be adjusted to give new players an easier start on managing their resources. The buildings you can construct to help your economy range from simple wood managing complex to uranium mines. The economy also plays an important role on your armies, without petroleum your units will not move, without ammunition they will not fire, without construction materials you will not be able to build new structures and without food your population and army reservers will die.

The game is a must own to all Grand Strategy players, the game not only offers a singleplayer campaign and different skirmish / scenarios to play but also a multiplayer mode where you can fight with other players that control their own nations in real time.

If you have played previous games ..it will not blow you away but you will enjoy a more polished gaming experience.

Battlegoat is definatly moving in a promising direction. I will continue to invest in them and you should too :)

Well done!

Okay...to start I'd like to say this game is still in beta, and although not the prettiest of games it is one of the funnest and in depth Political RTS's I could find and be more than willing to pay for again. The game is regularly updated as well so no need to worry about support. The economic portion of the game is very quick to learn, there is a slight learning curve at first but if you're used to the Genre or have played any of the other Supreme Ruler games (I haven't) you'll probably love it and ask for even more! The one thing that really bugs me sometimes is the troop movement and the supply lines...obviously if you have enemy troops cutting off supply lines that's one thing, but if you do have open supply lines and your troops still aren't getting the supplies you do have available it gets a bit tedious and annoying (you'll have ships or troops stranded in the ocean or enroute to take an opposing countries capital and just be completely stuck until another unit comes with supplies). Overall I'd give the game a 7 maybe 8 out of 10 with a strong reccomendation with more to come and several campaigns and only one scenario at the moment, multiplayer and much more in store for this game. Please help them out by buying it early and posting in the forums!

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."
