Reviews for Supreme Commander 2
An ok RTS gameBlockAgent | March 16, 2015 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
Supreme Commander 2 is a well made, well polished game. The graphics are good, the audio is good, even the cutscenes are good. But it is just an ok game in my mind because of two things: 1: Its very overcomplicated. Things are should have been simple are stuck behind layers of menus, a long list of key combos you are expected to memorize and some commands that should be able to be automated are not. 2: The enemy severely overpowers you no matter how much you upgrade or research, so expect some frustration when you send a massive battalion to fight a small group of fighters (expect to lose 2/3 of your battalion).
These two things hold the game back from being better than it could have been.
Not that Supreme but still goodPumba398 | March 10, 2015 | See all Pumba398's reviews »
This strategy makes you wonder. Chris Taylor wrote a good continuation of the first part. Yes, it is not as big as thought . With clumsy balance and strange campaign. Still, play as interesting as in the first part. Graphics tightened and looks good even in 2015. Multiplayer is not as good as it should be, but the campaign is cool and computer is worthy opponent to fight! Classic RTS genre is probably dead but this game can give you the same amount of fun as good old Total Annihilation. Totally worth buying.

This game series is probably my favourite RTS series ever, that's why I still play Supreme Commander 2 to this day and am saddened by the fact that this game series is dead. Supreme Commander 1 was a better game with more complex battles and the experimental units were unique. In this game experimental units are quick to produce and are needed to stand a chance as standard units (even with upgrades) do not suffice. Still, the graphics are good and the multiplayer is alive and kicking which is fun. If you are an RTS fan, definitely try out all three games in the series.
Fun, but not the same.theloststory45 | May 23, 2014 | See all theloststory45's reviews »
Supreme commander set a ton of mass battles where you used EVERY aspect of your army to totally crush your opponets. this game seems to favour smaller armies that are built up more powerfully. Along side that it features an RPG like element that allows you to speacilize your army the way you want. The problem with this is depending on who you face you really don't get to choose as you have to cater to your own defense instead of building a dream army.

You have three factions to choose from, each with their pros and cons. Strategy and decision making is important. Should I research a new experimental or improve my tanks power and range? Should I build turrents and shields, or build artillery? The enemy is sending a large attack force to you base. Do I launch my expiremental half-baked, or risk it being destroyed in the attack? You must always be improving your tactics and strategies. When you lose a match to someone, don't just go away upset. Save the replay of the match and study what moves your opponent made. It will help you out alot. Supreme Commander 2 isn't the best RTS game, but it's still an enjoyable, strategic experience.

I'm a pretty big fan of the original Supreme Commander, so I'm not the biggest fan of this sequel. The game is really scaled down, so it doesn't feel as grand or as epic as Forged Alliance. However, the single player campaign is well worth a playthrough. Get this when it's on sale if you're interested in an RTS that's different from StarCraft.

As RTS - this game is good. As Supreme Commander - disappointing. We get a better written and narrative plot, but at the cost of almost everything else. The maps are smaller and because of it armies are smaller as well. The graphics may be slightly better than the first one, but only slightly. If you are fan of sci-fi RTS games - may consider buying it. Total Annihilation fans should stick with first Supreme Commander and forget this one exist.
Still a fun gameEuthyphro | March 9, 2013 | See all Euthyphro's reviews »
This game has had a lot of units and features nerfed from supreme commander 1, however, it's still a fun game to play with friends. The graphics are good, game play is still good. I would like to see some of the more complex abilities from the first game brought back as one of the things I enjoyed about the first game was how in-depth the game was.

As a total Supreme Commander fan, I'm disappointed that the "sequel" is really just a game by the same name that was built for console gaming and slapped onto the PC platform without any enhancement. As such, it has a very short-twitch feel, with none of the large maps, giant armies, and complex build schemes that made SC so engrossing. I was hoping for even MORE complexity, larger scale, and more wow factor, but its not there. It is still a modestly fun game and pretty to watch

I never played the first Supreme Commander so I don't know how SC 2 holds up to its predecessor but it in its self is a very solid RTS. The campaign is decent and fairly long it took me about 15 or so hours to get through. The multiplayer is fun if your good at strategy games or play with some friends. The gameplay is fairly simple so anyone can jump in and have fun. The graphics are good for a 2010 game and still hold up to the standards of 2012. I would recommend this game to all RTS fans.

SC2 is a RTS game that is different from the rest of the pack in its epic scale. Alright, it's not as big as the original Supreme Commander, but compared to others of its genre, the scale is still pretty impressive. As a result of the smaller size, the game is faster than before.
It's a fun game with a nice campaign. If you enjoy RTS games then this is a must.

Supcom2 is a game come true for all die hard robot fans....even for those who tried to get into supcom1 but never could because it was too hardcore and time consuming. Basically, it has a ton of base building and robots ranging from super units..navy..air..and ground. The ai isn't a joke either as u can adjust the difficulty yourself. Skill or casual player is taken into consideration and that'ss evident when a new player can easily play the game without hassle.
Fun but different from the firstZippaLip | July 12, 2012 | See all ZippaLip's reviews »
SC2 is different from the first one. It is less complex, not as big, not as "epic". It's similar to the classic RTS, is faster, whit more differences between factions, with more "super unit", it has good looking graphic. Maybe the multilpayer is better, the matches can be less boring. But something form the first game is still presentAt the end if you have loved the first SC you can dislike it, but if you hate it let's give a try for this sequel.
No strat is complete without a ton of nukesStewartX | July 4, 2012 | See all StewartX's reviews »
I must be honest, I hated the first Supreme Commander as it seemed more of a way point game (Set factories to build, click where you want the new troops to move) and it lacked that personal touch. Well I can pleasantly say that Supreme Commander 2 is back to the good old style of tactics and building the right force for the job. Plus you get Nukes... not 1, not 10 but as many as you can afford! Nothing gave me more joy than watching 50 nukes land all at once on my enemy. Oh, I wish I had recorded that. :D
Graphics: Very good for a 2010 game. Nukes look fantastic ;) Gameplay: Good replay value. Multiplayer makes this game Story: Pretty average. I couldn't get into the story at all. My rating: 85/100 (Lost points for story)
Great strategy gameGh0st233 | July 4, 2012 | See all Gh0st233's reviews »
Supreme Commander 2 is a great strategy game. It is set in a very interesting and futuristic world. The campaign is fairly long and will bring you lots of fun, and when that's out of the way, there's multiplayer, and when a game like this has a multiplayer, only the sky is the limit to how much hours of fun you can get from this game. Definitely recommended for all strategy fans.
