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
