About This Game

For a thousand years, three opposing forces have waged war for what they believe is true. There can be no room for compromise: their way is the only way. Dubbed The Infinite War, this devastating conflict has taken its toll on a once-peaceful galaxy and has only served to deepen the hatred between the factions. After centuries of struggle, the battle for supremacy has at last reached a turning point. Under your strategic command and leadership, will your faction reign supreme? Will you be victorious and elevate your race to domination? Or will you lead them into the hell of defeat and ultimate extinction?

Why you should play this game:

-This is Total Annihilation on steroids. Except it is fatter, better, faster, stronger.

-Puts the word Strategy into RTS. Really teaches strategic thinking. Allows planning logistics, which is very useful, as you will move thousands of units across insanely huge maps.

-Big fat tech tree, with big fat city-sized units at the top of it.

-Multi-screen support.

-Picture. Looks great in 2014, and this is a 2007-made game.

An awesome game. I like to take my time, fortify my base, build up my forces before i take on the enemy. Something i find this game encourages. You do not want to rush things, because once the map shifts you could be facing a new enemy from a new direction.

And if you just lost most of your fleet or aircraft taking that earlier objective in a rush, the enemy will whittle you down. They might not get you on the first wave, but by the 5th they'll be through your defenses lighting your factories on fire, taking away your ability to rebuild the army you had. But if you took your time, that first army can hold the line, while you build a second to tear the enemy a new hole.

It's not a visually pleasing powerhouse, but it renders the units and explosions nicely. The story is fairly standard, as such games go. Pick a side and fight the other sides, who are evil. (off course pick an other side and you're old side is just as evil to them) Eventually leading to a climactic battle.

Supreme Commander is like Empire Earth meets Sins of a Solar Empire. Tons of fun and hours of replay value. A game any RTS fan should have in their library.

I just wish 'they' would still make games like this. I am a massive fan RTS's and this has to be my favourite. One of the few games i still have a disc for! This is a classic RTS style game and you can have deal screens!! You can have epic battles with 1000's of robots, although that will make your CPU.

I don't really know what i can say to make you buy and play this game.

Good real time strategy game. Comparable with the C&C series. Unique zoom out feature to view larger map is great. Large unit max count.

Probably this and Forged Alliance expansion are only RTS games that base on HUGE scale warfare. Hundreds or even thousands of units, advanced maintnance, advanced que system, advanced patrol and move system... Sum this all up and you have demanding, large scale battles that can last for hours.

Long time Total Annihilation fan here from 1997.

Supreame commander is deffenantly is the next step in RST gaming. this game has an interesting story that makes you want to keep playing to find out what will happen. with the three factions of the same story, it is nice to see the factions perspective of the story.

love this game, and its expanssion, Forged Alliance

I originally bought this game as a hard copy so my steam account hasn't logged the probable 100+ hours of game-play I've had from this game.
A fan of the old Command & Conquer games, this appealed and did not disappoint at all.

Firstly, the game play can be picked up very easily and the campaigns are a great way to get to handle the more in depth details as you play through the game and also the factions.
This game, however, came into it's own with the Skirmish option. Single player is always fun to pass the time and release stress by pummelling several opponents into dust. BUT for maximum enjoyment definitely has to be multi-player.
Once my friends and I hooked this up through a network (internet also) say goodbye to a decent nights sleep. The battles were epic, the scale was huge and most games started out as build a HUGE army and just slaughter your friends.
This does get a little overpowered at times but with the options to ban certain units/grades, etc. Then the battles became more interesting.
A friend would attack, you'd figure out a good line of defence, they go back and try work around that defence, you attack your way, they figure out another defence, etc... it was ♥♥♥ for tat battle that kept your ideas and strategies rotating and constantly developing.

In the years I've owned this game, it's never lost it's appeal. The graphics are nice & finely detailed, controls are very easy and bulk unit commands are simple, way points & patrols are easy to set. All in all a great strategy game BUT I'd highly recommend multi-player for a long lasting experience.

(After SupCom, I'd purchase C&C 4 and was very disappointed. Thinking about it, I've not played C&C since but instead gone with the SupCom expansion and SupCom2)

if the game dosent work here is how:

go to computer c:/ (or what ever hard drive you have the game instaled to) /steam/steamliberary/steamapp/common/supremecommander/bin. find the .exe file and right click go to propertys/compatability, the first option should be compatability mode, check it off and set the thing to windows xp(sp3)

hit apply and then ok and go to steam and run it. your welcome

the game is good btw 11/10 would bang again

I've only put an hour into this game as of recommending this, but I have to say, I'm definitely going to enjoy this game. The problem with many other games is that making a sizable army can take forever, and it never really feels like a true large scale battle (the only exception I can name that I've enjoyed being Battle for Middle Earth 2, when you can have 5+ barracks sending wave after wave into a battle zone).

This game takes large scale strategy warfare to a whole new level, even introducing artillery that can fire for seemingly kilometers right into the enemy base, bringing a hint of objective gameplay into multiplayer matches, where you may be forced to take out the enemy artillery to protect the integrity of your base.

I have encountered issues launching this game on Windows 7, however, but that was solved by launching the game in Windows XP Compatibility mode, so it's not a major issue.

To keep it short, hell yes, I recommend this game.

Years ago, I found this gem in the bargain bin in Wal-Mart and instantly fell in love. For an old game it still runs well and was one of the few games (even today) to be optimized for four cores. It needs that power to run because you will have awesome battles of an epic proportion. Each player can have up to a thousand units on the field at any one time. Even for an RTS game with thousands of units being rendered at the same time the units are well detailed and animated. Sup com is also the only game I have that supports multiple monitors, which is nice. It is too bad that there is no longer any supported multiplayer, but Sup Com Forged alliance does have multiplayer with Forged Alliance Forever, which is run by fans of the game around the world. The fans of Sup Com have even added support for mods and up to 12 player games, which is astounding with the fact that each player can have a thousand units.

Great Game, I recommend getting both Sup Com and Sup Com Forged Alliance. For $3.74 it is a steal and even for full price, it is worth it.











I do not suggest getting Sup Com 2, which was developed by a different company and the multiplayer is truely dead.
