“Creating a superpower from Haiti isn’t an easy task but it sure was a fun run, I recommend SuperPower2 to people that like world simulations or to people that wish they could run any country on earth in anyway they see fit.”

About This Game


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 rarely write reviews, but I MUST contribute here.

Where to begin! Well... I’ve probably put in over 1000 hours of play into this glorious gem over the years. Incredibly detailed slider control over just about every relevant aspect of a country. You can micro-manage just about everything. Such as, determining exactly which natural resources to exploit, how much money goes into building infrastructure, and which religion you want to convert your population too. Not a big fan of micromanagement? No problem! let the AI handle the areas you don’t want to bother with. Every decision matters and can have huge consequences. Take control over military research, including nuclear arsenals, naval, and land. Battles on land and sea have neat little animation scenes.

Nuclear conflicts are VERY satisfying. Reminds me fondly of the War Games movie in the 90s.

The game is a bit dated now, but still looks and feels nice on a new PC. Unfortunately does not support high resolutions but, once you get past this, it’s worth every penny and every minute in playtime.

There is really something quite satisfying about turning Gaza Strip and the West Bank into a global superpower! Or perhaps you would like to nuke Canada? Then this is for you.

I have played this game for longer than I can remember, so much that I bought it as soon as I saw it on Steam without even considering where the money is coming from, a new type of Multiplayer has been added from the previous title with the help of Steam, this game was also Greenlit by the community, the game itself can be improved with much needed setting changes and most issues with startup can be prevented by allowing of the joshua.exe which may may see as a virus, of which of course it is not.

I recommend this game to anyone who plays games such as Europa Universalis IV, as its a Modern Day Simulation built on the basis of real information in the time it was set, on release before Steam it had bugs and so on, but doesn't every game? Which have been on a constant fix since the games release and reviews by gamers such as myself have decided to help bring this game forward with the hope of SuperPower 3.

The game itself focuses on the year 2001 start date, where you take a country in the world and forge an empire, either through your politics, economy or military, just remember that when you take over the world, there is nothing left to take over! The game itself is the sort of game that puts you into a Multiplayer experience unlike any other, where you can RolePlay (RP) country politics, such as terrorists in Iraq or Russia invades Ukraine like the real world, the game itself is a brilliant Modern Day Simulator and I have played literly every game in this time period and will say, this is the best I have ever seen, I just dream of the day of the release of SuperPower 3.

How can you go wrong for £7.19 - £8.99 or less, depending on what it is for this review? Usually they charge huge prices for games like this, its a bargain in my personal opinion.

I hope to see you online! Get the game and lets start playing!

As an old user of this game since 2009, it is very exciting to get its steam edition with lots of improvement. It does not only still sustain its own strong points, which are noticeably distinguished from other strategy games, but also gets free from some previous unrealistic and exaggerating weakness. If you prefer to strategic game genre, this game is worth being played.
