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.
