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

Work of art
After playing several hundred hours I must write that this software is a work of art and that Chris Taylor and his team were or are artists. I will always enjoy playing SupCom 2 and so SupCom 1 and FA. A tremendously intelligent work was developed here. Thank you to the developers. I hope that team will get the appropriate support for future projects backed by kickstarter campaigns.

Still my favorite RTS to date. Nothing feels like the massively-scaled battles that SupCom 2 can produce. One mistake can ruin everything - for both your enemies and yourself.

One of the best RTSs I've ever played. A great development from the first game. Gives you all the tools you need to create proper strategies without having to micromanage everything. Steamroller your enemies!

As far as futuristic robot RTS games go, this one is my all time favorite. For anyone who loves robots and RTS games, this is one I can highly recommend. It is just one of those games I have always loved, every once in a while I'll launch the game and spend a little time playing skirmishes. I played the first version of the game for a while but stopped when I got a new computer. I installed SC2 on my new computer and have really had a lot of fun with the game. I really wish that someday they make another addition to the series, because it really is a great RTS series.

Performance of the game I would say is pretty good overall. I've played it on my older computers and it always seemed to run fairly well, which used to be really impressive to me to see so many units doing so much at once. Now on my more modern computer it is kind of to be expected it will run butter smooth.

I really like the camera in the game in that you can easily zoom very far away to a satellite view. It reminds me very much of how the camera worked in homeworld, and I loved that effect where it transitions to a different UI as you zoom. On the downside, the camera control when zooming in close and attempting to rotate in 3D space is not that special. You can rotate the view and get some angles, but it could be so much better if it was done in a similar fashion to Total War's recent games. In the Total War games I love that you get such a cinematic feeling with the camera, and this game could use this as well to great effect.

I think I tried to get through the campaign, but it wasn't really that interesting to me I guess, or I would probably remember it better. I also rarely find any interest in playing against others online, in my experience with other games it's often like playing against super hard AI and I don't like it when games are too hard that they frustrate me. I do love setting up skirmish games though and playing those, and totally destroying the AI. I like to set the AI to a low custom so they are easy to destroy, but it can be fun to play against harder AI ocassionally. It can be very challenging! A decent amount of maps for skirmish make me happy enough. I do find I play the same maps over and over, and would like more.

I'm not a hard core RTS gamer, I don't memorize all the units and worry too much about specific strengths. I just like building a base, building a huge army, and sending my enemy some hurt. Each team has some awesome super units, but I like the UEF and Cybran factions the most. I also love that you can build nukes and blow the crap out of the enemy eventually.

The game is pretty well balanced I think. If I were to think of what I would like improved about this game...

- A ton more units and super weapons, different factions, etc.

The game already has plenty, but it makes you addicted to wanting more and more fun toys to destroy the enemy with.

- Maybe some better graphics?

The game is kind of old now, but it still looks good to me. Most of the time you are seeing units from pretty far away so it's not that it matter too much. It would be cool though if when you do get close there is even more effects and detail, like the Total War games where there is DOF and a lot of unit detail.

I honestly do not know why this game gets bad reviews as it does from some people. But i absolutely love it. Actually i like it better then Forged Alliance. While Forged Alliance did have some nice bonuses as to putting more then one engineer on a building process and some other things, This game is abit better and more organized in my opinion. In Forged Alliance, to build an Experimental you had to use 1-10 engineers to build it on a random plot of land. In SC2, you can make them from factories.

I for one like that instead of random plots of land. Other things i am sad to see go were the Support Armored Command Units. They were very useful but i wont that ruin my gameplay fun!

The research is a nice add on, limits and makes things more complicated and more advanced. Not to mention very very challenging. Forged alliance was easy once a good base was set up, in SC2, it keeps you active and on alert for a surprise attack.

Another interesting challenge is defending against the Nukes! First time i played it, i was torn apart! But i eventually found a way to defend against 5-6 nukes every 3-5 mins. People also mention units move slow...Actually, they don't. They are 100% the same as Forged Alliance.

Pros:
- Good System of Units
- New Land, Air and Naval Units
- New Structures
- New way to acquire Mass and Energy
- Challenging
- A cool research system that provides complexity
- Keeps you on alert and not underestimating the AI
- Interesting Campaign and Storyline
- Good Multiplayer System
- New and Cool Maps to play on
- Better Graphics
- Better Quality
- Less Laggy then Forged Alliance when building huge hoards of units

Cons:
- Some classic Units from Old games were removed (Not that it is important!)
- Only one engineer per building instead of many that could build one building in Forged Alliance
- No SACUs
- Some Useless Units, but it doesn't affect the gameplay at all
- A little to frequent in Nuke Launching by AI and the # of Nukes is abit to high per strike. (Can be defended if done correctly)

So in conclusion, I would recommend the game to all my friends and surely say, it would be a great purchase and you will have tons of fun and will keep you active for a good time !

I'm filtering through my library of 300+ games and labelling my favourite from each genre. For RTS games, THIS IS IT.

Some people say that Supreme Commander 2 is a step-down from the original or Alliance or both, which is true in some aspects because the game is more simplified and with an increase of pace, especially when it comes to unlocking research, and the decrease in map size was definitely a let-down. I would agree that the original is slightly better, but I'm reviewing the second because I spent all of my multiplayer time on this installment in the series. Having said that, the gameplay IS just as fun and engaging as the first, with better graphics. It's not like the devs changed the combat and concept of it.

I actually have hundreds of hours logged in this game and the first from over the years, outside of Steam. If you love RTS games, you'll love the entire Supreme Commander series. Simple as!

Must have for anybody who likes strategy Games.
In my Personal opinion, its one of the best (After SoSE)

What you need to play ?
Well.. You either need to rush.. or to research for prototypes. Depends what the enemy is doing.

In Multiplayer, most people make speed x10 .. i personally hate it. But when they dont want to take time, then i cant to anything about it.

In this game are NO Ranks.
The Multiplayer is sometimes really... meh.
When 1 person lags, the other are lagging too.
Aswell.. not many players play multiplayer and many just go for nukes what is then .. yeah...

Well ... of to that.
Story is .. well .. okay..
Wouldnt say long, but its okay.
I mostly play against KI and the KI is well made.

I dont have many words about it, because its just a good game with nice graphics and not to much to say about it.
If you like strategy, get it.

As a stand-alone game it is amazing. But compared to the previous to Supreme Commander games this is a major step down. Remember how there were huge tech trees? such as the tier one factory can upgrade to the teir two which unlocked more units, well thats all gone. Instead now you build a research station which slowly gains research points which you use to upgrade your units not unlock new ones. Remember how you could choose a commander to start the game with? well now it is story based so you have to play the commanders in order (UEF, AEON the Cybran). Explosions are amazingly downgraded aswell. Remember the satisfaction of destroying a commander and watching a huge nuclear blast spread and destroy their base? Well now the commander explodes in a small blast and and all the oppents units die at once. Also all of the experimental units are extremely nerfed remember the AEON saucer? now it is smaller and much weaker, send 7 intercepters at it and it's gone. The Cybran spider bot has been turned into a crappy little beetle bot which are so easy to defeat they're in the first mission. All shields are the same size now (small, unless your counting huge UEF shield in the DLC) and instead of them all blocking shots the Aeon and Cybran shields let 15% of shots through! and now all shields look the same aswell. But the most annoying thing, the most annoying thing of them all is that everything you build counts as a unit. No more unlimited turrent defences, no unlimited shield protection and no more complex base defences. If you're reading this review before buying the previous games then buy this game first or dont buy it at all
