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?

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.

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.

Supreme Commander is an RTS (Real-Time Strategy) game with Land, Air and Sea units. There are video tutorials explaining all the basic controls, structures and units. The Graphics/Sound/Voice/Music are good and the game is well put together. It is easy to play, but will take some time to master. The game is fun to play and has plenty of re-play value. There is more complexity than commonly found in most RTS games. There are enough customization options to keep any player happy.

An excellent RTS that doesn't have many equals. It does have a bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it's just massive and super fun to play. Can be challenging but in a very good way. Being able to have up to 1000 units in your army is pretty neat. If you're a true strategist, this won't disappoint. There are multiple ways to go about how you want to attack the battle field. If you're a fan of heavy micro and macro managing, then this game is for you. But don't be fooled, the game can appeal to even the casualist of gamers. Trust me, I know. When it comes to RTS, let's just say I'm mediocre. But this game has what I need to waste some time. In a good way.

I bought Supreme Commander so I could play another Real-time strategy other than Command & Conquer or Sins of a Solar Empire. What I found is that this game is what you would get if you mixed the two.

Supreme Commander has the Epic scale and resource management of Sins, but the Micromanagement and the strategy of C&C.

Gameplay - Able to run at Full graphical quality on even today's entry level cards, this game is set for the future, as it was one of the 1st games to boast Multi-core support. The attention to detail n this game is amazing, being able to zoom in to your smallest units and then out to see an entire army, then to the entire battlefield is a concept only seen in Sins.

Graphics - The Graphics are okay for a game from 2008, which is probably why it runs so smoothly.

Soundtrack - The soundtrack is only really noticeable on the menu and in battles, as every other time you are concentrating on building a massive army

If this game is on sale, it's a good offer, so if you have nothing else to buy, this could be a good choice.

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)
