Fans of the Supcom series were excited when a sequel to the award winning Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance was announced, but this excitement quickly turned to disappointment when the final product was revealed. Supreme Commander 2 features smaller battlefields, simplified economy, no mod support, no custom battlefield support, and overall gimped gameplay compared to it's predecessor. If you are a fan of huge battles, this game isn't for you.
This game was made by Chris Taylor who is a popular RTS genre game maker, notable for Total Annihilation and Planetary Annihilation. He made Supreme Commander as a spiritual successor to Total Annihilation, it features three factions at war with each other. Just like in any RTS, you obtain resources to create buildings to construct units to do battle with your enemies. Multiplayer is fun and the AI can be challenging, so you can have fun with a multitude of maps and endless customizations with different spawn points and different AI difficulty settings. The story mode introduces you to the world of Supreme Commander via the eyes of different factions. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the RTS genre.
Supreme Commander 2 honestly doesn't have much in common with it predecessor beyond its title. The gameplay feels similar on the surface, but, as you play it more, it becomes clear that this is a very different game. It isn't bad, just different. I played through the campaigns once each, and never touched them again. It's a solid game to kill an hour with in a quick skirmish from time to time, and a solid RTS, but there isn't much to it beyond that.
I have around 150 hours playing this game and it's has caught my attention since 2013 when i started playing it. I always played rts games and i wasnt always the best, but this game made me around 20 times better at rts in general given it's typical base building feel to it. But it's so much more than that. it will boast multiple fronts when fighting enemies, and you can easily check on every front because of the amazing zoom feature that allows you to watch the whole battlefield. But as many other reviews have said, it is overly complicated. there are lack of buttons and functions that should be put into it, but hasnt. So because of that, micromanaging is a big issue, but you learn to get good at it. I would definately recommend this game for new and vetern rts fans
Supreme Commander 2 looks amazing. Vibrant colors, awesome designs, that great cover art. While it's not a bad game, it is a disappointment. It plays like your standard RTS with little new brought to the table. The designs and aesthetic look cool, but beneath those is a kind of shallow experience. It's worth the price, but your money could be better spent elsewhere, even on a different RTS.
