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

SC2 is a superb RTS which unlike other AAA games in this genre gives you da ability ta STACK build waypoints and strategic command waypoints for each unit on da battlefield for ultimate ease of tactical use.... this is a great feature! The scale of battles is impressive, amount of units and structures ta build is great also. The graphics and sound are very good altho not up there with C&C... but considering da scope of battles they are nice!

With epic battles and lots of options from menu's to in-game mechanics, this is well worth a tryfor any RTS fan.

8/10

The dumb down of SCFA. Its fun and looks great, but you cant get mods and maps easily, the game is incredably boring, and there's no tech levels, only the "Research Tree" system (which is stupid to me), since in SCFA if the enemy destroyed your T2 engineer, you would have to get another T2 land factory to get that engineer again, but on here you just build and build and build until you win, on SCFA you could use alot more sophisticated tactics instead of rushing head-on with a bunch of spam tanks or gunships (you can do that in SCFA, but nobody's a noob like that(hopefully!)) Overall I do not recommend wasting 20$ on this game, if the mods and maps were better I might recommend this.

They take everything that is great from Supreme Commander and Supreme Commander:Forged Alliance then beat it until it's the same muddy brown color that resembles what the rest of this game is. Like what Spielberg did to Indiana or Shyamalan did to Avatar, Chris Taylor did this to Supreme Commander.

It is a shame that I parted with any amount of money for this game. After playing the original Supreme Commander, this sequel seems like a cartoonish trip down of a rather steep flight of stairs. Please do not purchase this game.

A complete shocker. The franchise of SupCom / FA was totally and completely trashed by Square Enix. Dumbed down for the lowest common denominator that disenfranchised core fans

Pros
Core mechanics somewhat similar to original franchise

Cons
Economy model that made the franchise distinct gone
Sense of 'epic' completely destroyed
Unit design heavily meddled with by Square Enix (very Anime like)
Tech tree horrible
No engine / AI improvements

Chris Taylor (Lead Dev) was a complete sell out on this game and it all but destroyed his until this point remarkable track record with TA and SupCom/FA.

Do not under any circumstances purchase this game. so much has been taken out that made the first one great and so much random rubbish thrown in for no reason that this barely qualifies as Supreme Commander any more. Buy the first one or buy Planetary annihilation. Hel even total Annihilation was a better game and that came out in 1997.

Despite that I do have to say that as a generic RTS it's okayish, nothing stands out as really great and the fact that it's folllowing in the footsteps of two such fantastic games just makes it seem like dog ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ in comparison.

I'm really not sure whether I can recommend this game or not. I first got this when it first came out and frankly, I was severly disappointed. It is a complete downgrade from supcom/FA. While I feel it is a good RTS on it's own, knowing what it came from is almost disgustng. If you want a basic RTS that won't require much planning then SupCom2 is your game. If you want an RTS that is massive in scale and requires actual strategy then I highly recommend you get SupCom/FA.

This is a step back in almost every way imaginable from Sup com 1 and FA. If you like the original or FA then stick with them, if you never played them than this game may not dissapoint you.

The game can be fun, assuming you like the RTS type and havn't played any of the other Supreme Commander games, Its loses so much in the new one. Everything is also more limited in options but hey, maybe people like that. While I would recomend it to players who have not played the series before, I would also recommend just skipping it and playing the first one.
If you've played the other series before I would recommend this game as a 2.5/10 and if you havn't played the series before a 7.5/10

The loss of the resource system from SupCom1 really brought this game down for me.
Not the most horrible game to play but I would still recommend SupCom1 over SupCom2.

By itself, it's not such a terrible game. It's kind of like starcraft with a strategic view, which is actually pretty cool. But it is not what I would expect to follow a game like Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance. Many of the models and names of the units in the game are similar to the previous game, but the scale of SupCom 1 is completely lost and having an upgrade system is against the heart of how Supreme Commander 1 was interesting. It makes me thing that they were trying to compete with the player base of starcraft instead of creating an actual second game in the line of Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander (Supreme Commander was touted by the devs as the 'spiritual successor' of Total Annihilation, and I consider the first one successful in that regard, but the second, not so much).

Many types of units. Many possible strategies. Top down view. Oh, that's an ordinary RTS.

Supreme Commander 2 is warfare on a massive scale. You can command armies of 200 or even more. This game is amazing, especially with friends.

Although I haven't played the "even better" original (yet), I will say this is a great RTS. I would easily recommend it to any RTS player, new or veteran.
