About This Game

In Supreme Commander 2, players will experience brutal battles on a massive scale! Players will wage war by creating enormous customizable armies and experimental war machines that can change the balance of power at any given moment. Take the role of one of the three enigmatic commanders, each representing a unique faction with a rich story that brings a new level of emotional connection to the RTS genre, or fight the battle online. Where do your loyalties lie?

  • A deep and powerful story - element adds a personal, human aspect to a storyline previously focused on warring factions and the politics that fuel them. The single player campaign features three character-driven storylines set 25 years after the events of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance
  • Command enormous armies made up of customizable land, air and naval units. Each of the three diverse factions – The United Earth Federation (UEF), the Cybran Nation and the Illuminate – have been completely redesigned from the original game, with many units.
  • Experimental units - returning with new designs and greatly enhanced looks….and some new tricks that can be unlocked through research
  • New Supreme Commander Gameplay Experience - players now have the ability to research new technologies and units and deploy them instantly on the battlefield, allowing them to upgrade a base-level tank to a high-powered, multi-barreled, AA-sporting monster by the end of a given game.
  • Strategic Mode UI - the redesigned UI that is faster, takes up less screen real-estate and gives better player feedback
  • New rendering technology that allows us to create visually spectacular environments

I loved everything about this game. Its pretty easy for a new guy to come in a pick up the basics quickly. But its also complex enough for the veterans to spend a lot of time on different battle plans. The only thing I didn't like is that when your playing and you get close the the unit cap the game starts to slow down a lot. But this is far from a deal breaker. If you are looking for a simple to pick up but complex enough to keep you going, look no farther.

If you liked the first Supreme Commander then you will hate this one. It took everything that was good about it and dumbed it down. It took away all the complexity that made the game fun. Not worth it at all.

I don't really like leaving negative reviews but this is one of those rare occasions where I really regret buying a game. The first Supreme Commander was perfect, an absolutely brilliant game and so was Total Annihilation before that. But Supreme Commander 2 just doesn't cut it.

The game feels unfinished. There are only a few units and buildings per faction with no tech tiers or special functions. Graphically it is not as good as the previous game and the rehaul on the factions unit styles is just simply strange... like the cybran giant fire-breathing lizard with robotic limbs.

The maps are tiny and the lack of units literally means the only strategy available is to hurl a constant wave of bots at the enemy.

The campaign is also lacking. They've attempted to add more of a back story through a series of overly cheesy and annoying cutscenes and comms dialogue. You don't get the epic sense of scale that was previously seen in the first Supereme Commander.

All-in-all, if your hoping for a newer version of Supreme Commander 1, I'm sorry but it's not this.

I purchased this RTS game on discount, after only checking a few pictures, I had no expectations and I must say, the story of the campaign was great. So I would recommend this game on discount for all RTS fans that liked games like Red Alert, Tiberium Sun, Generals etc.

Highly recommended, especially if you are time limited and only have an hour or so but want to play something that will challenge you in that timeframe. Don't listen to the people whining about Sc1 and SC: FA and how SC 2 is "like, so dumbed down".
It's a different game, it's not rocket science folks.

Extremely good game. Plays smoothly and so far have had no problems. I used to own the console version but bought it on PC for the higher unit cap as well as the added units in the DLC.

Supreme commander is a very good RTS game. It looks amazing, seeming to focus on that as much as they focus on gameplay. You can scroll in to see every detail of every tank you build, and they all look amazing. The gameplay is much like any other RTS, but it twists it up a bit by adding addons to buildings, research points, and other cool things that you have to try to enjoy. I know I am not giving this justice in this review, but, if you are reading this, trust me. It is a good game if you are a fan of any RTS game. I give it 9/10.

Definitly a fun game to play. Easy and quick to learn, as well as a fun story line to work on. It does however have a lot of the epicness missing that SC 1 + Forged Alliance carried (Early made game). My 500hrs into this game was well worth it however; a blast!

Bad game compared to the first which had large battles and strategy, in this as soon as the cease fire start period ends artillery can fire half the length of the map with tiny maps the game lasts less than 5 minuts and is no fun. With bigger maps this would be a great game.

This game is nowhere near as good as Supreme Commander or Supreme Commander Forged Alliance although it supports windows 7 seems too cartoony.
