This game is very simular to Supreme Ruler 2020, because of this, fans who loved 2020 will enjoy Cold War and vice versa. The cool thing about this game is that it improves upon many of the past Supreme Rulers adding more content and things to do. The downside to this is that the game an a very steep learning curve and the HUD is less than friendly. I must applaud the sheer amount of things to do in this game though, including everything from taxes to building and military. You play as any country starting from 1949 to the end of the cold war. If you play as America for example, you may decide to declare war on Russia rather than making the Soviet Union fall. China may decare WW3 and Sweden may decide to go Communist. The possibilities are endles

Imagine yourself commanding a superpower during the Cold War. That's what Supreme Ruler: Cold War gives to you. You control and decide what do to in all the different aspects your country is involved into (like weapons production, tecnology research, economy, etc.). You can also command the AI to take care of things for you, but this way you lose many interesting things the game has to offer. The three different game modes are very enjoyable. They can take some hours to finish or even weeks! You'll find yourself thinking about what to do while you're brushing your teeth, working or doing something else. The tactical variety is amazing, comparable to the historical accuracy. You can sabotage events that happened in real life, you can negotiate, spy enemies and much more. The game is very complex, what may be a drawback to people who don't enjoy strategy games very much. And the graphics are kinda poor, not a little appealing. If you enjoy a good challenge and are ready to play a thing like a Supreme Ruler, buy this game right now!


Vast number of choices!

This game can get a bit scary at first because so much is going on at once, but then when you slow the game speed down a bit you can really get to appreciate the detail and the vast number of choices you get when you play Supreme Ruler ColdWar. I like the military battles side myself, so the improvements over the older Supreme Ruler games with better naval transport, and the option to fight wars as a "proxy" instead of declaring war on everybody, are very big features. The Espionage side is a bit boring, but the tech tree is improved and easier to understand, and ties in better with the rest of the game. Diplomacy has some cool new options, and a lot of the other regions (controlled by the AI) seem to have lots of things of their own going on. I'm actually preferring the Sandbox to the Campaign game, but that may change - lots of gameplay and replay value in this game.

I do like the wider range and innovative ideas in this. first, you get a globe and a map. While other real time games are more limited to just "one" single area such as Europe, this lets you spread across the world. Neat and huge play time is already shown through this. Although there are only a few factions to play, they're the main ones that most people like to play as. United States, etc. Who wants to play as a small weak nation? Technology research, trade, etc is very common, so players should know what to expect. The ai ministers can sometimes screw be wary. Visually speaking, game is nice so to say. But I've seen better. Ai does what it is supposed to do..most of the time. I enjoyed multiplayer, always fun in a lan party.


A great strategy game!!

This is a great strategy game for fans of evolving gameplay, random events, fast-paced action, and government/military/economic management. Supreme Ruler Cold War provides variety and innovation to the stagnant strategy genre, which is exactly what the genre needs. If you like playing as multiple factions with a large "world map" style of gameplay, this game is for you!!
