A nice RTSDaBigMan | Nov. 23, 2013 | See all DaBigMan's reviews »
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.
Just another RTSDemilisz | June 17, 2013 | See all Demilisz's reviews »
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
