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?

Most epic RTS I've ever played. Where games like Age of Empires and War Craft 3 added more "Emersion" and games got smaller scale, SupCom blew the boundaries off zooming in/out on large scale warfare. Command up to 1000 land/air/sea units AND buildings in 4 tech tiers. Massive base building (no limit on individual unit types other than 1000 max cap) zoom in to near 1st person and hold space bar for a rotating close up higher detail cam view of battles, or zoom out past the clouds to see the entire MASSIVE map shrunk down to minimap scale and watch a sea of little enemy lights blink out. Even in 2014 it's a beautiful game, does not look out dated. Not quite as pretty as Tiberium Wars maxed out settings, but plenty of eye candy. Very replayable, different strategies, different races. If you've played and liked any of the other games mentioned above and the like, your collection is not complete without SupCom 1 and Forged Alliance, I've dusted off both many times.

Games include the entry: Supreme Commander, a standalone expansion pack: SupCom- Forged Alliance, and Supcom 2 - which is a Square Enix takeover and is a dramatic change to the game. Highly recommend Buying Supcom 1 and Forged Alliance as a package deal.

As I mentioned in my review of the Forged Alliance expansion, Supreme Commander is the spiritual successor to the old Total Annihilation RTS. Both games involve creating large armies of land, air and sea vehicles to defeat your enemies, but Supreme Commander takes it a step further. Not only by having large maps and large varieties of units (even though they're mostly similar between the 3 factions) but also by adding experiemental units such as massive spider walkers or artilleries that have virtually infinite range or battleships that double as naval factories.

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.

I randomly purchased this game on sale, and I am very glad that I did. For noobs to the genre (like myself), having a plethora of tactical RTs games to choose from can be daunting. Despite it's excellent reviews, I had never heard of Supreme Commander before, until I saw it pop-up in the Steam special list.

This game is far more than I ever thought an RTS could be. I fell in love with it while still in the learning curve phase, and it only continued to get better as I played through the campaign. I am baffled that more people do not know about this game.

Love it. 10/10

I absolutely love this RTS.

Unit upgrade system rewards you heavily for spending the time to upgrade/build proper unit requirements. However, it's also completely possible to win any game with the most basic of units. No matter your play style, this game has something for you.

Build line and line of defenses and make a fleet of artillery launchers / nukes to snipe your enemies base or quickly build up a basic army and rush your enemy before he's ready. You will have fun with this one.

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 haven't played Forged Alliance yet, so this is just for the base game. Being a MASSIVE fan of TA, this game is familiar and different. The tutorial is stupid and almost useless, and finding all key definitions isn't possible in game, so use the internet. The interface in game takes a bit getting used to, but works just fine. The only gripe I have is when laying out multiple build commands, its not as streamlined as TA at all... should have kept it the way it was in TA, much easier. You'll find yourself deleting a huge set of commands and starting over from scratch just because you misplaced something by one tile.

OTHER than that, this game is FUN. Strategy up the yin-yang! Upgrades rock, units rock, defenses rock. GAME PLAY rocks. Buy

Please refer to Supreme Commander Forged Alliance.

Actually, you don't need to. All you need to know is BUY IT.

And get FAForever.

'Splosions, strategy, and a lot of potential zooming.

This game is simply awesome... might be a bit old but it is stil one of the the best RTS games I've ever played.

Not only is it the only RTS I know of that supports a dual screen setup, it has a nice story line and epic battles. Most times you fight on land, air and sea at the same time. Organizing your forces is crutial. (Although Gunships are a little OP in this version)

I totally recommend this game to every RTS fan, ignore the age of the game, it's awesome!
