This game is very complex, and it takes a lot to get into it. It's a good game, but hard to recommend unless you really enjoy stratagy games. My intrest in the cold war was really all that kept me playing past the 5 hour mark, but now I'm glad that I stuck with it. It's not a game that I play often, but overall, I do enjoy the game, and it was worth the $30 or so dollars I paid for it.

Cold War takes nearly every element from 2020 and improves it ten fold. The graphics are still somewhat primitive but improved greatly and it almost has a charm to it. The diplomatic elements are still some of the best in strategy games but still lacks some features that could make it the best. Military wise its fun and easy to figure out and the new Merchant marine makes it ten times easier to move troops globally and invade island nations. The economic part of the game is time consuming but makes you think about what you need to make it work well.
The interface for managing everything is organised but can be confusing with some elements hidden behind too many other interfaces making it a maze to figure something simple out.
The Cold War campaign is well organised with the Atomic and Space races and the many conflicts and problems are there that were present in the 1950s,60s,70s and 80s.
The Sandbox mode is also still fun to play and a healthy mod scene makes it enjoyable to try different modes and scenarios.

Overall this game is definatly worth your time and money if you into this genre.

While the game may be hard to play in the begining, it gets fun to play after awhile. You get to rewrite history in the game. In the end, its very fun to play.

One of my top 5 games of all times. For people who value Gameplay and Logistics over Graphics then this is the game for you.
A must have for all true strategists.

Supreme Ruler: Cold War is an amazing game. You get to play in a alternate-history scenario in which your objective is to dominate as much as the world as possible and run your nation to the best extent possible. In the Campaign, you can only play as the United States or the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). Each of the two superpowers are sleeping war machines and can be unleashed at any time. A Cold War between Capitalisim and Communisim may turn hot with the turn of a key and the push of a button...

However, my favorite feature in this game has to be the Scenario mode. You get different scenarios to play such as North Korean Blitzkreig on South Korea to capture Pusan to finally achieve reunification of the Korean penninsula under DPRK rule.

In Sandbox mode, you are able to pick from any country in the world during the Cold War. As in Campaign, the USSR and United States all have monsterous militaries and high-yeild nuclear warheads, but you have the chance to develop other countires to attempt to be on par with the United States and USSR. However, this would take weeks of gameplay and extreme amounts of skill and patience. Since you can play as any country, you construct your own world, hence the name of the gamemode.

However, nations do not just lay down and die. Supreme Ruler: Cold War thrusts you into a action-packed and intense World War III. You must defend your borders while expanding into your enemys' territory. Take their capital as many times as it takes and conquer your enemy. Your enemy will do their best to fight back, so be careful!

The modding capabilities of this game are outstanding. You can mod everything from the territories, to the flags, to the units. Another great thing about the mods are that you can still play Cold War if you wish. Some high-quality mods include:

Modern World

State of the Unions

Shattered World

The only downside to this game is that it does not have a tutorial. This can be infuriating to players new to the Supreme Ruler series. A tutorial is included in Supreme Ruler: 2020, but not in SR:CW. Since this game can be very complicated, it is up to the player to learn from online tutorials and exploring the game. Like learning how to move your units across water or why your units stop in desolate areas due to lack of supply with fuel shortages.

I love this game so much. My most played mod is Modern World, but other mods are amazing too. I wish this game was more popular, as it is a great game of strategy, war and world domination. 9.7/10
