Let me just start off by saying that I love this game, but the standalone expansion "Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance" offers more bang for your buck. With that being said, if you want this game for the campaign then you should get it. If you want the game just for multiplayer and skirmish matches, then get "Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance," as it outshines the original in that regard. It isn't a matter of this game being bad or unlikable, it is just that Forged Alliance offers more skirmish and multiplayer content for your money. If you're looking to play both then just get "Supreme Commander Gold Edition," as it includes both Supreme Commander and Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance.
(edit): People seem to be confused by this, so I'll say some more about this below:
Forged Alliance is a standalone expansion. You don't need the original to play it. Forged Alliance offers a new story and a new faction. It has all of the original maps and units, as well as some new stuff on the side. Forged Alliance also has a somewhat active modding community. If you want to play skirmish and/or multiplayer, Forged Alliance is a better buy. If you want the original story, Supreme Commander (the original) is a better buy. If you want both, get the "Gold Edition". I've seen it for as low as $5 on Steam. Also, I thought that I should let you know that there is no more first-party multiplayer support.
