Supreme Commander 2
Great game. Nothing bad about it. It has many great features and story mode is cool. I think it is awesome.
Not as good as it looks
there is no infantry, which annoys me a lot because i like the classic infantry, cavalry(armor), artillary idea. The Steam engine is annoying, its really laggy and slow, there are like 5 real units per race and then everything else is an experimental which i really dont like since they are impossible to kill and one experimental unit can kil 10 regular without even trying. The AI is ok but they are just annoying, the game is really confusing and not very fun. I have to get updates everytime i want to play, even when i dont play it online at all, I hate patches. The upgrade trees are wierd and require research to get, which takes forever. Overall this game isnt good, Starcraft 2 is much better if your looking for an RTS and Shogun Total War is also really good. Just dont get this.
I don't see how people can't like it
This game, in my opinion, is WAAY better than C&C and is very good in gameplay and everything else. Some people say that he storyline is horrible, but that doesn't really effect me since I just play on the skirmish and online. The story line isn't really a big concern. I just play it when I'm bored.
The story is extremely slow and confusing until you get later into it. It forces you to play as a certain faction first, then another and end with the Cybrans. You should definitely try out the originals, they are ten times better then this. Overall, the gameplay is about the same as the last game, the graphics are much better and the sound and music is again amazing. However, the story development needs more work.
look out gamerz, here comez awsome
alright here comes the best game eva, anyway herz a shout out to all of the peeps that think this game is the best eva u rock 4 ur good reviews. anyway the graphics might not be as good as the first but the graphics to me doesn't matter at all since the campaign is awsome and a good storyline. along with the campaign the units and multiplayer maps and experimentals and ect. but i honestly i think the unit count is very low there should be a higher unit count because people have things to do units to make and probably alot of them too and places 4 them to go like in others bases and stuff.
Best RTS game made so far
This game is the absolute best RTS game you can play. And I have played alot of RTS games, so I know what I'm talking about. This game has very good graphics, and they will be even more enjoyable the more you paly the game, considering that you notice things like shadows cast by the terrain, and details such as distortion coming out of a walkers exhaust pipes. This game also has an amazing command system. There are more controls and options you can use to make your army do anything imaginable. This game also includes extra experimental weapons, which they balanced much better than on the first one, and actually have a general purpose rather than to walk into the enemies base and kill. And most people have heard that the nukes on the second ones are pitiful compared to the first. The difference is that on the first one, it was a bright light and smoke covering a large area of the map. On this one, it might be only a little bit smaller, but it is insanely detailed, in the fact that an extremely large portion of the map gets lit up in red, and things are actually moving with the explosion as they would in real life. When it touches water it makes steam and jets it into the air, so nukes on this one are much more enjoyable to watch, regardless of what you've heard. All in all, 10 stars.
I don't know why people don't like this game, because if you like real-time strategy or RTS, this is the game to get. I usually only play online and play skirmishes to get better or if no one is as good as me because I can destroy anyone. I am a veteran at Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1 and 2 so don't try and kill me or fight me.
good, but a little disappointed
What Gas Powered Games have done here is amazing, this game is packed with more units, new features, less glitches, and a lot more excitment. what i was really taken with is that there is no +mass or -mass anymore, its all based on real numbers. the tech tree feature is amazing, allowing you to upgrade old units to make them more lethal later in the game. a lot of the good things are still their like the cybran ships being able to crawl onto land. however, the story is disappointing, character extremely lack any sort of personality and emotions. also, for high end computers, this game has surprising lower graphics, units like the UEF titan look a little bit more like legos, even though some units have good deatil, others are flat out bad, although you have to appreciate that they are trying to let computers with lower hardware able to run this game. online play and skirmish mode are fun.
SC2? or sometihng completely different?
Supreme Commander 2 is different than it's "predecessors", i say it should just have a completely different name slapped onto it. Then i would of not had any quarrels with it, because i wouldn't be expecting something so different than what i knew. Now i own both of the "previous" games and they are both excellent, and so when i found out about this "sequel" i ran out and bought it with out much looking into it, i knew it had a different maker but i figured how bad could they have possibly made it... i mean it's Square Enix! Now don't get me wrong it is a good game, but i was expecting to buy SC2... Not SC2 revamped... i couldn't just jump into it, i had to learn the new feel to the game. In SC2 you now get to your good units by having to research most of them, and experimental units are really not that great, yea they are all based of the old games models but i think that most kinda suck comparatively... like the experimental units, for so called "game breakers" as they were know for in the old games, u can make them with very little ease and there not nearly as effective as they use to be.... which i guess is the trade off for it, but even hordes of units can crumble in no time it seems. Regular units are just knock offs of the original ones and are only really good when you upgrade them via research. However i do think the research is a cleaver aspect of the game and the brand new units/structures that were added are a nice touch, but it does usually take awhile to get to them in the research tree even with the research facilities which u can build to increase research income. completely Also the variety of units is gone there use to be at least 2 sets of everything... a lower cost, lower tech versions, and the higher end units, which i prefer the variety of them because they all had there uses, lower tech units could be used as cannon fodder, as your high end tech marches on, or even if you had to come up with an army quickly. All that said i do still play it as i've gotten use to it, but i am still disappointed, if you are looking for something different to play with a somwhat familiar story, then you would like the game play; especially online to which it seems that it was made for, but if your expecting the feel of the original game then i would say go play one of the old ones...
So where is the GAME?
Got my package, installed it and got a STEAM POWERED program that starts itself every time I start my computer [no option to turn that off] and emediately takes me to thier online site with only options to buy games. The was NO GAME on the disk. No information saying that it is an Online game only [no information saying it is even an online game on thier site.] I tried to check out the Forums, registering for thier forum kept takeing me to other sites. These other sites required me to reister. This repedative nonsence went on for 4 diff registration that finnaly returned me to the STEAM forums. Unfortunately I still wasn't allowed to access thier forums. No tech support, no contact information ,no game.. No reason to even consider getting this product.
