About This Game

RULE YOUR COUNTRY, CONQUER YOUR ENEMIES, DOMINATE THE WORLD!

The Story:

SuperPower 2 is the only global geopolitical simulation game which allows players to control entire countries. Players control countries in 3 major areas: political, economic and military, but this time, in a beautiful real-time 3D environment. Players build up their own countries and increase their influence in the broader world while competing against sophisticated A.I. Along the way, gamers make use of economic sanctions, political alliances, and military actions to wage their battles. SuperPower 2 offers the ability to fine-tune each country's performance, from creating or breaking treaties, to making tactical decisions in particular military conflicts.

Key Features:

  • 193 real countries all playable & equipped with realistic data drawn from the CIA World Factbook, the United Nations and U.S. Military databases.
  • Sophisticated A.I. designed to realistically simulate each country.
  • Real-life combat situations, with multiple forces joining and leaving battles as the balance of power shifts.
  • Real-time gameplay and Modular units building.
  • Solo scenarios and "sandbox mode", as well as full Multiplayer support for up to 32 players in a variety of styles, including world domination, economic master, and many others

SuperPower 2 Steam Edition Features:

  • 14 steam achievements
  • New internet matchmaking library, and modified the UI flow in the multiplayer menus
  • Updated the code to support new OS
  • Widescreen Resolution support
  • Editor and Full SDK included

Gameplay Changes:

  • Capital ships needed for invasions from the sea. They need to be within 750km of the region you're trying to invade.
  • Enemy fleets must be further than 1500km of your invasion fleet when trying to invade a region from the sea.
  • The AI will take diplomatic relations into account and will decide whether or not to annex regions under it's military control now.
  • Economy: GTM limited to 30%, sectortax at 70%.
  • Diplomacy: embargo treaties result in a drop in relations.
  • Combat Radius has been enlarged to make frontlines easier to make.
  • AI: allies will make more rational decisions when there is war. If you can handle it yourself, they won't help.
  • Peaceful Annexation: depending on population support in both nations, you now have more or less chance of peacefully annexation a nation.
  • 95 and the nations involved need at least one religion or language in common.

I really want to recommend this game to people, but there are just too many flaws with this thing for me to do so. First of all, the way battles are done in this game is crap. When you invade a country, what happens is all of your and the enemy country's troops move into the same spot and have one really large battle, after which your enemy's armies are completely obliterated (or yours if you screwed up), leaving you to capture all their points with little resistance. The interface for this game is also pretty bad; they tried to go for a minimalist approach, which would be good for a regular strategy game, but in a grand strategy game such as this you'd want as much information as reasonably possible on screen at the same time, which this game fails to do in a way that's not stupid (you get to open a bunch of windows that can get cluterred very easily, and it can sometimes take a lot of fighting with the interface to get to the information you want). There's very little flavor to the game as well; if you're coming from Paradox games like I did, or even from Creative Assembly games, both of which have a lot of historical flavor in their games, you might be a bit disappointed with what you see here. I guess there's a bit of flavor in the tutorial missions and in early game when the game has some startlingly plausible events take place based on the data within the game that was "taken from U.S. military and C.I.A. databases" as the box proudly proclaims (I've had a Pakistan vs. India war in my game, and have heard of stories of the Arab Spring happen in some people's games despite this game being released years before the Arab Spring took place), but other than that the game can get very boring very quick if you're in it for the flavor, unless you aren't looking for historical flavor in a history simulator.

Also, you're playing Russian Roulette if you buy this game to play it on a newer computer. Despite all the fixes, this game still refuses to work on newer computers, and getting any support is next to impossible from what I've seen. You'll also need to be connected to the internet just to start the thing.

This game has MANY issues, but nonetheless, it still manages to be incredibly fun and addicting.

Pros:
-Good soundtrack
-Comes with mod maker
-193 accurate nations to choose from
-Amazing replayability; 100% sandbox mode
-Multiple preset scenarios
-32 player multiplayer; that's right 32 people on one server
-Custom unit design
-Well-rendered globe
-High FPS even on weak systems


Cons:
-Economy lacks depth
-Military lacks depth
-Politics lacks depth
-Cheap combat animation
-Mod editor not compatible with Windows 8 (it was built for Windows XP)
-Mouse-screen syncronization issues
-AI lacks depth
-Unreasonable AI (Such as Japan randomly invading United Arab Emirates or China randomly nuking Zimbabwe)
-Over-simplified UI
-Random crashes on some systems

Superpower 2 has a great concept, having the potential of dominating the entire Earth. Which is different from pretty much any game I've ever seen (except Shadow President). I love this game, I love everything about it. So you may be wondering "Why did you not recommend this game?".

You see this game is perfect in every way (like I have said) apart from one major flaw which kills the game, puts it in a coffin and buries it in the ground. You can only play this game for a short amount of time after paying money for it. I played it for around 5 minutes before it crashed. And I'm not the only one. If you go onto the forum page, you'll find hundreds of accounts of the game crashing or the game encountering a fatal error. And most of them are from 2014. It is now 2015 and the game still isn't fixed!

Because of this, it is absolutely impossible for me to give this game a positive review as I can only play it for about 2 minutes before I get forced to stop for having too much fun. The game had potential. The game could have been something special.
