About This Game

The last days of man are at hand.. Two years after the Infinite War the once great warring nations now lie in ruins, and humanity’s hope for a brighter future is nothing but a bitter memory. 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.

  • New Units: 110 new land, sea, air, base and experimental units evolve armies to address strategic weakness or become the ultimate expressions of factional military doctrine.
  • Warfare on an Epic Scale: Fully realized navies, orbital weaponry and advanced counter intelligence technologies give commanders unprecedented, deadly new capabilities in what is already the most strategic RTS on the market today.

A grand expansion for quite possibly the grandest strategy game ever made. If you are looking for massive battles across land, see, and air with giant experimental units towering over hundreds of tanks and explosions, look no further.

It is a beast to run even in 2016, but the incredible experiences possible make it completely worth it. You'll want to grab the community lobby at http://faforever.com to play mods, get the latest balance patches, and use matchmaking, as the steam version is a very dumbed down lobby list.

I've played the game since launch and consider Forged Alliance an essential companion to the original masterpiece. Once again, the campaign is filled with cliches and medicore writing, but it's better than the base game's campaign, and is a great prep for playing online with others.

Perfect 5/7 duck-sized horses or 10/10 fake internet video game points.

I first heard this game from my cusin. He is one of the few peorsons around me who knows about a legendary RTS game called Total Annihilation. If you know and love Total Annihilation, you will also love this one too.

This one specially the best of the whole franchise. The game engine and dynamics gives you a smooth game play experiance. It really makes you feel the same like you play Total Annihilation. Nearly same tech tree. Very nice and fun to play units and same game mechanics. you even have "D" gun on your commander too.

I love the single player missions in Forged Alliance. I can play them again and again and again.

I am an hardcore turtle. I always build a huge citadel like not a single unit can pass through and slowly build a brutal offensive force and destroy my enemy in a single hit. I used to play Total Annihilation in same way. I can spend hours in a single player campaign chaper to stabilize my citadel. This game allows me to do that. Also it expands the map during missions which gives me more citadel building options. Specially in hard mode being a turtle can be challenging too.

Do not look at my play time. I play this game 100+ hours in offline mode. I finished the whole campaigns with all kind of options i can imagine. even i captured an enemy builder and used only enemy units. I have built a commander army to defeat my enemy. I tried all kind of army combinations. I even used offensive turret building and i still can play the game withouth getting bored.

I loved the large unit concept which is called experimental units in the game. you can build huge expensive but strong robots to deal with your enemies. in the first game and the last one the experimental unit balance and feeling doesnt as good as in Forged Alliance.

What i most love about this game is the resource management. very simple but the way you use it is unique to the this game. you constandly generate non finishing resources and constandly spend them. management here is the difference between expence and income. I love how it changes by the time. and i love the fact that even with small amount of mass/metal income in start you can expand your income in game later with tech tree and mass/metal makers.

and i love shields, shields baby! my shineys...

This is a MUST OWN RTS game for everyone.

With this game you fell like you are controlling the army of the whole country. Want a 80*80 map? No problem. Want to Fight everything across the huge map? No problem. Want a large sea battles that only few RTSes can do it? No problem. Do you want a large explosions? no problem.

But gotta say. This game is very CPU intensive. You need a very good CPU. Not more cores, but more GHz because this game is very old and not support multicore CPUs.

I'm sorry that I have only a few hours. But I put most times on Forged Alliance Forever.

I would get owned and get negative rank in ladder again.

One of the best, if not THE best, RTS games out there. They don't make them like this anymore. This game has such an amazing sense of scale balanced with challenging AI, 4 unique factions and complex gameplay. This is the game for people who are fans of RTS titles such as Command and Conquer (Pre-CnC4, Post-CnC RA2) who are wanting to up the ante and go on to challenge foes in HUGE battles. Even better yet, either ONE key for SupCom OR SupCom FA will get you both games.

If you're just coming from the original Supreme Commander then this game is a must-have. It cleans up the UI, adds 1 more faction (Seraphim), loads new maps and an undying support from the fanbase. I highly recommend the Forged Alliance Forever mod manager for tons of community made mods and maps to increase the life of this game!

With a delightful mix of base-building and unit micro-mamagement, this game has everything most RTSs wish they had.

25/10 would get artillery spammed again.

An excellent RTS game with a remarkable amount of thought and care put into it, one can tell that the developers truely loved the game they were making, and that level of care, meticulous attention to detail, and authenticity is hard to find in modern AAA games like starcraft.

Supcom effortlessly joins relatively simple concepts such as mass extraction and energy generation with tiered technology and layered complexity to create a game that at no point seems overwhelming, but always keeps the player engaged. I cant remember any time in the game I felt like I was coasting, or I had nothing to do, as the tremendously effective AI always keeps you on your toes, and whether you are a new player, or a veteran, there's a difficulty for you. I also can't say there was any time, save perhaps one instance, where I rage quitted. Supreme Commander is one of thos games where losing is just as fun and spectacular as winning. Hearing that STRATEGIC LAUNCH DETECTED, or seeing an experimental bomber bearing down on your base are the kinds of twists and turns in the game that level designers would work to make by hand, Supcom acheives them on a regular basis just by operating within its own well implemented rules.

100/10, if you don't buy this game you're kind of stupid.

Why are you reading the comments ? Buy that game, play it, lose, start a new game, lose again, start a new game build nukes, UFOs, experimental units and destroy your opponent and finally win.

Supreme Commander: FA Where does one begin?

Born as a spiritual successor to Chris Taylor's revolutionary RTS Total Annihilation, Supreme Commander builds on TA's original formula and simply makes everything better. Tech levels where weaponry gets more powerful, and expensive. Land, Air, and Naval units to attack your enemies from all sides. Being able to que up units and have them set to go to points and attack, patrol, or be air-lifted to places on the map, this game simply does it all for an RTS. Gorgeous graphics, awesome effects, and a great sound score round it out. If you are a fan of the RTS genre, this is simply a MUST HAVE/PLAY!

The only flaw I can find with the game is that once you have four players with around ~750 units each, the game has to slow down to continue to keep things smooth. I would love to see something where it could be optimized to be able to take advantage of today's powerful multi-core processors to be able to allow thousands of units to multiple players and render them smoothly in real time.

9.999/10

As someone who has played 100+ hrs on disc, after I picked it up in 2007, this game is totally worth it. Forged Alliance I never bothered with- but now that I've started it it seems to just add a new campaign and 20 or so units.

PROS
- An AI that actually (OMG) focuses on economies and defenses!
- So many units, C&C can eat its hat(s)
- Great modding community
- Hours and hours of play vs Normal AI (C&C Hardcore is easier than them)- racked up about 9 hrs in one single game.
- MASSIVE maps. Let's just say a massive artillery piece can't get half of one.
- ACTIVE physics. Fire that nuke at the wrong time? Air force is gettin' halved, baby.
- BIIGGGGGG economy requirements. You can't plop a Tiberium refinery and be done. You need to fight to secure Mass from enemies, and you need a ♥♥♥♥ ton of Energy.
- AIs send lots of scouts at you, and engineers to remote locales to secure Mass- even sending bomber squadrons on sorties into your territory to take out a Mass collecter, then sending an engineer to rebuild it in their name
CONS
- AIs focus on air.. But that may have something to do with me building lots and lots of gunships.
- AI defenses too good- you'll need several hundred units to break through
- AIs build massive armies... and then don't do a damn thing with them
- SO MUCH MASS REQUIREMENT. I have over 15 T3s, and it doesn't make enough to build troops and a single building at once.
- Interface sucks compared to original SupCom.

Back when i was a young lad and didn't know how to computer, i didn't like this game because of the graphics. Now, i appreciate the work and effort people put into producing good games, and i understand the importance of screen resolution. The graphics in this game are not like, next gen or anything, but they are good. (taking into consideration that this game was made in 2008)

Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is a great RTS game that offers an experience like no other. The battles take place on a huge scale with maps ranging from 5km x 5km to 81km x 81km. The sheer size might sound pretty cool, but then you get into more small scale. Base building in this game mixes micro and multitasking with managing multiple bases at a time. Nearly everything in this game is upgradeable in some way, so you have to manage whats upgrading while managing unit production and income. You have to remember to upgrade your ACU so you get the benefits from it, all while remembering to build defenses and intel bases. Base building in this game is also really awe inspiring. Different buildings get buffs from other buildings, such as the energy generator, energy storage, and mass fabricator. These all affect each other in some beneficial way, stressing the need for a good base lay out heavily. The fact that nukes and artillery shells can hit a plane in flight also amazes me.

This game offers some really awesome experiences and has a real need for a good strategy. Base building gets more and more complex when you're trying to get the most efficient base, and upgrades add more depth and variety to the game. If you're looking for a good, fun, and over all enjoyable game, you're looking at it right now.
