A new, seemingly unstoppable enemy, supported by the zealots of The Order, now seeks to eradicate mankind: UEF, Aeon Loyalist, and Cybran alike. With their backs against the wall and staring into the abyss, the tattered remnants of Humanity’s forces must put aside old hatreds and band together as they prepare to make one last desperate stand. One last chance. An alliance forged in blood, steel and hope, they turn to face the dark.

Game Size:
+ enormous diversity of tactics

- solo missions for all three parties the same

It’s a real-time strategy game in which hundreds of robots collide upon enormous maps. 40-by-40 square kilometers (or even 81-by-81 in skirmish and multiplayer), the game offers a lot of flexibility and room. Forged Alliance takes the already brain-poundingly complex and uber-balanced unit structure of SupCom basic and adds more than 100 new robots and vehicles to take into account (including 10 new unit types for each of the old factions). Releasing FA as a stand-alone game was an odd choice, then, as anyone who hasn't played the original will likely be way too overwhelmed by both oft-unstoppable AI and lightning fast online opponents.

The campaign six missions are often weak applied for in-game cutscenes, which is almost always present in need of blowing up another enemy base interrupted. But it's really not about story - it's about war on a planetary scale. SupCom wasn't loved for having a particularly good story, and it's no better here despite a valiant effort. If you were a fan of Supreme Commander, you've probably already purchased this expansion and will surely be pleased with it.

If you're new to the series, this is, logically speaking, the game to grab first.
It's not a game for every gamer, not even for every RTS fan, and, quite frankly, you might be turned off even once you get to know it.
It's your first day - take it easy until you've learned the ropes :D

Score: 83 / 100

Probably in the top 5 of All RTS games ever made. Will admit that the learning curve is steep but the depth adds so much replay ability to the game

GPG has long since ditched the online game play but the community has made their own match making and ladder system!
Check it out at forged allience forever!

This game is a masterpiece it is a base building RTS based in a future where the galaxy has been torn apart by a millenia of war by 3 factions:United Earth Federation Cybrans Aeon eahc being different and unique this game also has a unique unit system where u start with ur ''commander'' who builds structures for u and can defeat low level enemy units and ur commander can be upgraded to be improved in combat or have access to higher level structures u can also build enginers a=however ur commander can build quicker there are 3 technically 4 tiers in the game and are defined as ''tech'' u will start at Tech 1 and u get to higher techs by building factories of the previous tech eg once u have a T1 factory u can upgrade it to T2 then T3 each tech allows access to more advanced structures and units once u get T3 engineers or upgrade ur commander to T3 u can get ''experimntals'' which are the most powerful units in the game they are expensive and have high health and damage
The campaign takes place during the ''infinite war'' as the wars combatants have nicknamed it due to it's long period of fighting however when an alien race appears called the ''Seraphim'' the 3 factions UEF Cybrans and Aeon are forced to make a temporary cease fire and stand together to fight the Seraphim threat the campaign features 7 missions I believe each challenging with interesting objectives and characters uuuu can unfortunately not play as the Seraphim but can choose a commander from one of the 3 allied factions
The combat section of the game is phenomonal however battles can last too long these can be multiplayer in the campaign or the multiplayer the combat even though can last too long is great battles are intense and massive and requires strategy and constant attention matches rarely get boring
Pros:
Brilliant gameplay
Unique mechanics
Hard campaign
Interesting characters
Great story
Large battles
Intense gameplay
Well balanced
Cons:
Battles can drag on too long
Some units build too slowly
Campaign can get too difficult at times
In the end the game is a masterpiece if I gave it a rating it would be a strong 9/10 it is unfortunately held back by ridiculous difficulty spikes and battles dragging on for literally hours but I would highly reccommend this game to anyone who like the genre.

Best strategy game ever! My hrs into this game (787.5hrs + my other account) have well exceeded 1000hrs, nearing 2000hrs of total game play. It was without a doubt the best game I've been introduced to. I recommond this game to everyone, expecial those who love stategy game; whether or not it's on sale. Some have said that SC crash's and I would more point that at thier system then the game itself. Still, if you find it crash's simply go to google (Who uses bing ;)), search up Supreme Commander Forged Alliance Forever and download it. It'll fix your crash, as well as give you tounds of new mods and palyers to play with.

12/10

I first stumbled upon Supreme Commander when it come in a glorious steam bundle filled with big name titles. I owned the game for nearly 3 months before actually playing playing it. (You know how it is.) Never heard of Supreme Commander or the series and passed it off as a generic knock off from Command and Conquer. WOW I WAS WRONG. SC and SC: FA are 2 of the most underrated RTS games I have ever had the privledge of playing. The progressive scaling of units and map size where hundreds of units engage in epic land, air, and sea warfare is something very few RTS games get right. NIce blend between theoretical technology and pre existing war machines with armaments that can be found in armed forces around the world. But what impresses me the most is how smooth the games run, even when 2000 units are "in play." The interface is very polished and easy to navigate. Simply scorlling the mouse wheel immediately zooms into full view of the map where units are displayed by icons instead of smaller models, allowing for fluid macro play even when your 3 bases are scattered across the map. Has all the elements that one would want in an RTS which include but are not limited to:

4 playable factions. All with their own unique flavor and yet are still balanced.
4 Tier(s) of technology and units that are EPIC when engaged in combat.
A challenging campaign with 8 missions that can last between 1 and 5 hours. (5 if you're like me and enjoy building more automated base defenses.
Incredibly fluid gameplay that is challenging and rewarding.
And finally it is quality mental exercise when you've got 10 macro'd unit groups and several dozen unit production buildings gaurding your commander against endless waves of enemy units that often have an unfair advantage.

If you're a true pc game elitist and you enjoy games of strategy that are aesethically pleasing then definitely grab SC and SC: FA next time you get a chance.

PS - could care less about any grammar or spelling oversights. (Its a steam review that no one will read anyways.)
PSS - Do not buy Supreme commander 2 unless you are a HUGE fan of the serious. Square Enix produced the 2nd installment and completely re modeled all of the units and maps and turned it into shallow, brightly colored, and insignificant shells of their former counter parts.

Anybody who enjoyes R.T.S. games must get this one. It is by far the best one i have ever played, over the total war series, stacraft series, and homeworld. There just simply is no other R.T.S. that compares.

Good game, I recommend this over any of the other Supreme Commander games. There's so much content, way more strategies you can use because of this. More maps, buildings, units etc. make this game a must buy for any RTS fan.

The price might seem a bit much for something as old as this, but there's just so much stuff it's justified, but you could wait for a sale if you're not sure ;)

I honestly think there should be a third game i have been playing this game since i was six. Jesus i enjoyed it so much i bought copies for all my freinds. So yeah my idea for a stoty line is that the seraphim army that invades in this game was just a small army and that they now are waiting for a moment oppertune to strike the cybran accidently re open a portal that they can more fully manipulate and all hell breaks lose. Obviouly there will have to be new tech but the same look and feel of the other games just better graphics quality and more stuff if you agree all SC fans RATE AND REPLY WITH MORE STORY IDEAS!!!!

Best RTS i've ever played.

Commander and T1 units are still useful on the late game,

Really hard to master,

AI is actually very good and can make you go through a tough match.

Con: it takes way too long to get to experimental level and matches can easily pass 1 hour, atleast for me...

Buy when it's on sale because there aren't many players online.

Thumbs up, 9/10

This is quite simply the best RTS game there is to date, period. If you are wondering on what to choose from this version from Supreme comander 2, choose this one, it is far better than Supreme Comader 2. However, take these into consideration...

Pros:
-Intense scenes of battle and tons of infantry options (tanks, ships, air and uprgrades)
-more based on conquest over important areas rather than just having more territory
-graphics are pretty damn awesome for this type of game
-Custom maps and mod support
-Stratigically hard and makes you think about your next move
-never gets old...

Cons:
-Hard to grasp for new players (very nice and easy tut in-game though)
-Resource gathering is a little bit harder than the original game
-Long wars that seem to never have an end (my record, 4 hours of non-stop playing, which isnt that bad)
-Can be little crazy at times
-no multiplayer with random people (you will have to find a friend to play with because there just isnt anyone on)

Overall, its a kick ♥♥♥ game and i love it. Nukes, secret bases and stratigic base installments are key to success, while also trying to maintain a good economy (i.e. mass and energy plants to fuel your army).

The possibilities are endless. All there is, is war... KICK ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ING WAR...
