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?

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.

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

My favourite strategy game, especially the expansion that made this jewel of a game even better.

The story is well written and the voice acting is up to the standard. The campaign is full of well executed missions and the cutscenes are well done too. It is the kind of commitment I see in every detail that most games nowadays are lacking.

I can hardly comment on the multiplayer in steam version. I own the original release and activated the game in steam. The olden game had this gas powered games hosted multiplayer lobby system that worked excellently. As I've gathered the service has been ran down. Leaving the steam version with only direct ip multiplayer. Which as consept sounds oh so very crippled when compared to the excellency that was the old multiplayer.

Only thing I could think to complain of ( in steam version ) is the lack of manual. Proper one existed for the non steam version of the game, however it has not been added to the steam version of the game. Not so terrible I suppose. I found it problematic because the game has well mapped hotkey controls. It is much easier to control your air units if you know that ctrl+a selects all air units. The key mapping was only present in the game manual. So the steam owners might find it bit more difficult to organize their army than people who have the manual.
