About the 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

Some say it's not as good as Supreme Commander (1) or Forged Alliance, and I think I'd agree with them. However, Supreme Commander 2 is still an awesome RTS which lately seem to be fewer and further between...

If however you thought SC1 / FA had too much micro-management (with units AND resources), you'll probably enjoy SC2 more!

This is my personal favorite RTS. It definitely has a more intense feel than other similiar RTS games, such as SupCom 1 and Total Annhilation. The overal strategy is a little smaller in scale, but this leads to faster battles that are more fun to watch. It's still far more of a macro game than something like Starcraft, but it's one where you can still watch the units vs being zoomed out the entire time like it's predecesor. It's campaign is plenty fun and playing on hard can be a good intro to skirmish matches. In additon to traditional multiplayer matches, co-op vs the ai is very fun and challenging as well. I also highly recommend the DLC, it adds many new units and research options.

A bit about the game and developers.
Supreme Commander 2 is a great robotic strategy game developed by Gas Powered Games and published by Square Enix.Gas Powered Games are also developers of Demigod, original Supreme Commander and so on and on, while Square Enix is a publisher of many published games like Tomb Raider, Hitman, Sleeping Dogs and others.

About Gameplay.
Supreme Commander 2 is a strategy game with three different factions. Each faction has its own units. Each Faction has its own bonuses. UEF have strongest unites, most expensive units and units with most HP. Cybran Nation are the weakest but the least expensive. They take the least amount of time to construct and are always largest in numbers. Aeon Illuminate are the most balanced units. Their HP and attack strength fits perfectly with the price of the unit and the construction time. There's one more faction in this game, but since it's unplayable I don't think they are too important.

The game has both single player and multiplayer mode. In single player your objective is, of course, to save the world. The story is pretty good but nothing too special. The awesome thing about this game is the multiplayer. Since the game is about 2-3 years old the servers are very empty. And those that have players are usually professionals and games with them lasts about five to ten minutes. There's tones of strategies you can do to win this game. I played a lot of skirmish games to learn a lot about this game.

To be able to play this game correctly you need to learn fast. Because even AI is so smart that it can win against you on normal difficulty. It will attack you from all possible directions: water, air and land. It will attack in small waves while slowly building a huge wave of army. The AI is amazing.

It has three different resources. Mass, Energy and Research. You can set up research facilities and energy builders where ever you want, but you can only place Mass on a designed area. Players can fight against each other to be able to own the Mass builders that they need.

You need Mass and Energy to be able to build new units and structures, while you need research points to be able to research for new units, more HP or new building that will help you with who knows what. You need to make sure to always have enough of each, but you also need to make sure that you're able to make a big amount of units since this game is all about large scale wars.

As mentioned before, this game is all about large scale wars. In my opinion best tactic is to play with two friends. One person focuses on land units, second on water and third on air. That way you can have biggest army numbers due to smallest cost of units. There are two main game types, annihilation and score points. In annihilation your objective is to kill enemy commanders while in score points your objective is to gather as main points as you can by taking over couple of big towers.

Graphic and Audio
Graphic is great! Lasers and rockets everywhere, blown up robots, massive explosions. It's very well made. Details on the units are also extremely nice! Songs are very quiet and calming, but for the most of the time you're so focused on the action and all the lasers that you barely even hear it.

Pros, cons and final grade.
Pros:
- Wonderful graphic.
- Amazingly fun skirmish.
- Huge scale battles.
- Very fun if you have a friend or two to play against the AI.

Cons:
- No players so there are barely any multiplayer games.

Overall grade: 7/10

Extra info: If you're big mech fan as I am, and if you love strategy games, this game is for you. It doesn't involve much thinking, but it's extremely fun to play. Though, don't count on Gundam units to be in this game. Sadly there are no units looking like Gundam ones, hehe.

This game is one of the best RTS's i have played and i have played many. Much like other RTS's there are some kind of "TechUpgrades" But with this RTS there is a huge tech tree that consists of; Land, Air, Navel, ACU (Armoured command Unit) and structure upgrades. This allows you to upgrade and spec out your millatry, to out gun, out whit and out manouver your oppent's army. Also with the structure upgrades you can add anti-aircraft guns to the building ,even; Shields ,missile launchers and intel gathers (radar). All units are upgradeable and have different abilities. There is range of different building and units avalable to each different faction that consists of 3 factions. Each faction has there own different abilties, units, buildings and upgrades! I recomend any RTS lover to buy this. For an old game it runs great and any one can play!
