Supreme Commander 2
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.
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.
me and my dad loves this game. it's a great game for any kid. I tell everyone about this game.
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.
this game is really good and deserves praise!
this is one of the best strategy games i have played for the xbox 360 and is very well made. the only problem with it is the sound, which can get annoying after a while. the bombs and missiles will hit there target but you will only hear one explosion and then a few seconds later another explosion. other than that it is a very well made game that you should pick up because it is so cheap. this is an amazing game for anyone because it is so easy to understand and get.
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
Looks Like an Excellent Strategy Game!
I can't wait for this to come out it should be a lot like commander and conquer but with a lot of improvements!!!
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.
On of the BEST
Supreme commander is defanatly on of the best command game of all time. Supreme commander's gameplay is very well balanced and the inteligance will give you a new experiance every time you play. This games story line is nothing very special but this game really shines in multiplayer and singleplayer skirmishes. The AI is very smart and can be very chalenging set on a hard difficulty. The story literially is just a bout a war called the "Infinity War" and can be played by 3 different factions. The main faction and first one you should play, is the UEF or " United Earth Federation.The UEF is litterially your offenceive team, the team litterially shines in very heavy weponry such as a murderous aircraft called the AC-1000 that can completly obliterate any large ground force in seconds. The seconed faction is the Cybran. The Cybran is the most ballanced of the 3. The Cybran is a faction fighting for it's indipendance from the UEF and have some very good tecnology up their sleves. Such as boats that can sprout legs and walk on land. The last army is called the Illuminate. The Illuminate is the most tecnilogical of the three and has some very very strong wepons such as the ultimate collosis. The huge battles are nothing less than brethtaking but some how don't make to much sense. What I mean is that you send in about 200 tanks planes and boats but it just seems that they die too quickly and seem expendable which is true. But the coolest thing is their new addition of exparimental units. These units can quickly change the tide of a battle and rake havoc on your opponet.unlike the orrigonal the commanding has been simplified and is very easy to pick up. The game runs smoothly with very good grafics. Supreme Commander should last you a very long time and is a blast to play at any time.
I still play this game.
Honestly, I thought this game was great. one of the only games where you have two armies fighting each other and you can control every single solder. Not only is the campaign fun and challenging, but it also forces you to think and make strategies to defeat your enemies. plus the campaign is not something you can do in a day. it is a long and fun story. The only bad thing about the campaign was that the plot was not great.
Once you are finished with the campaign you can skirmish with up to four players or computer players on over 20 maps. played every map and getting bored of beating the computer players? Then you can skirmish online with or against your friends.
