The people who right bad reviews don't get the concept of real time strategy. Not only can you see awesome robots but there's a story. controls are easy. Great game!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Tragic A Pleasant Surprise
Being new to the RTS genre on consoles, I must say that Supreme Commander 2 came as pleasant surprise to play. The only RTS I have played prior is Halo Wars, so maybe I am a bit biased toward something different. While Halo Wars is a great game, Supreme Commander 2 does strike similarites. I simply look at it as Halo Wars on a larger scale. In Supreme Commander 2, one gets to choose between 3 factions. They each have their unique units as well as counter units. Gameplay is easy and graphics are good, maybe not as good as Halo Wars, but close. The sound quality is terrible. The sound effects produced are reminding of the 8-Bit Era. I just cannot justify giving that praise being on the 360. Also, some of the units will look small on the field, even while zoomed in. It does have a good story behind the campaign. At least good enough to keep one's attention. Overall, if you're in to RTS game or at the very least getting into the RTS genre like myself, I'd definitely have to say 15 dollars is well worth checking this game out. Grab it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Razor Rex Excellent RTS
Pros - Great frame rate. Good graphics (The large battles are GORGEOUS.) Skirmishes do not take 5 hours to get anywhere in. Each faction is unique, but similar enough that one is not overpowering. (Good balance.) Sound effects are good. Best RTS game on a console to date. Rush timer! Cons - The story is... pitiful. It is really obvious that the Campaign section was some sort of afterthought to skirmish and online modes. The voice acting is downright terrible. The cut scenes look worse than the actual gameplay. The enemy AI loves to rush. The difficulty for skirmish AI opponents goes from *yawn* to *I lost... 1 second after the rush timer.* Overall this is a good game. Supreme Commander 1 purists will be a little angry over the streamlining, but for those of us that can't sit for 5 hours on 1 battle, this game is great. I would definitely suggest this to any fan of the genre.
Rated 5 out of 10 by USArevenge It's ok I guess.
supreme commander 2 is supposed to be a spiritual successor to total annihilation. Sadly the game doesn't live up at all. It's an RTS with a decent unit cap, you have a wide range of units from very small units to massive walkers. the campaign is pretty fun for a playthrough, each race feels different and are fun to play. it's a very short game though and you can beat in in 1-2 days without issue. back in total annihilation skirmish mode vs AI was very fun, sadly the games in this don't last long vs AI because of nukes. 1 nuke pretty much eliminates any ai base, having 2v2 ends up failing because the ai kill each other with nukes, boring... if nukes were removed it could be a lot of fun but last I played you couldn't. It's still a good RTS on console but it gets boring soon as you beat the campaign I hope for a sequel with a good skirmish mode on next gen consoles.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Frodo dono Not a port
The 360 version is going to be running on it's own engine as announced by the creator Chris Taylor. The first supreme commander for the 360 was a direct port from the PC, the develoupers of it did not have the propper amount of time or recources needed in order to make that port succesful. However, because the game is new and is running on a completely different engine then the orignal Supreme Commander, the designers now can properly format the game to the constraints of the 360 and optomize it to play at smooth framerates, after all it is being made from the ground up. Also, Chris Taylor in an interview stated that he would be very suprised if the game did not do as good as the PC version. If you have read this post and or done research on the subject then you now know that this game may turn out to be what many people have been waiting for.
Rated 0 out of 10 by SpaceGhosty! Not Sure...
Well first of all the new trailers are looking very nice and clean and the battles look very cinematic and i love that. But i still have my doupts about this title. While back i played the SC (supreme commander) demo and it was a huge let down for me. I personally am a huge fan of the RTS genre but when i played the demo of the 1st SC i was very upset. The Controls were absolutely terrible and nothing really seemed to work properly for me. It seemed like just trying to perform the basic action of moving my units was a huge hassel. BUT!!! I still have hope for the new and 2nd addition to this series. I am hearing that they have a new engine for the 360 version of the game so im hoping they make it all work. Im going to wait for a demo or a friend to get this before i decide wether or not to purchase this so for now... im just not sure...
Rated 9 out of 10 by iamasmallchicken1 AND I DONT EVEN LIKE THIS GENRE!!!!
ok so when i picked up this game i dint expect anything but a Red Alert rip off with some robots but gladly i was extreamly wrong. this game is noting like Red Alert although being an RTS a game genre i hate, this game got me hooked! this game dosent have overly long tutorials that take hours to complete *Cough( Red Alert 3) *cough No this games tutorial forces you to play it before playing the games actual story but no worrys (I got through it in 10 minutes) so if someone who never really plays these types of games got through it that fast and got the entire jist of how to play it experianced players wont even have to worry about it. now about story your this one guy who works for this corporation called Migrane ya I know... well after i guess proving yourself the comander guy tells you to destroy a city filled with illuminate solders only problem is your wife is illuminate and lives there so you go against him and fight and destroy him and the story goes on with the illuminate story and cybron story so this game has alot pluss you can do scrimages and face others on xbox live so your getting a lot for your money thats why i gave this game a 9 out of 10
Rated 10 out of 10 by epik76 Great in just about every form but doesent last
This game has amazing graphics, easy (once you get the hang of) controls and a good apeal. I also thought the caimpain was great (afew cheesy lines) but overall fun. Idont understand why so many think its sucks but thats their opinion. Saddly i found that it doesent last. after you beat the caimpain the skirmish matches are essentially reapeats (send scouts,attack by air(or land depending on map size) attack bigger, attack more, send larger attacks, send experimentals, nuke.) thats the basic of the AI. for me it build mass,defences earn reaserch get experimentlys and if all else fails nuke. pretty basic. Hoever the online is extreamly challenging (when you can find a match). but even online it can get boring. overall great at first but dont expect it to last.
Rated 4 out of 10 by epadilla72000 Don't buy this game
The AI is simple at best. They rush even when on Hard(turtle) with no real strategy, just send waves of unit and attack the first thing they see. The graphics are barely next gen. The sound includes poor generic laser sounds, sub par voice acting, and no gripping music. Seriously, isn't square enix known for hiring symphonies for soundtracks? Not much challenge to win, build base, fortify base, research King Kriptor, build units, build King Kriptor, attack enemy base, repeat. The interface is pretty good, but missing some key features like select all units then control individual unit types. The story seems like a caption of a much larger story and even playing through all campaigns is incomplete. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone who likes RTS.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Supreme Commander 2 Fan Supreme Commander 2 - The Best RTS Game up to Date
Supreme Commander 2. The Best RTS Game out yet. I encourage anyone who loves strategy games to get this game, it is by far the best in the series and by far the best RTS game. Single player is good, AI is challenging, units are awesome, scenery is magnificent, strategic view is incredibly useful, the three factions seem like each an equal opposition, this game is great! The gameplay is awesome. The maps are awesome. Everything is awesome. The game has nearly reached perfection, the only thing stopping it is that it isn't possible to have a perfect game. For anyone who is considering getting the game, I say get it. Your money is well spent if you buy this game. I would pay well over the amount that this game cost for such an over the top strategy game!
