The Bad: The interface is horrible. The interface means that when you play online the game tends to lag a lot or slow down. When you are playing a multi-player game, the graphics and game speed is horrible. For the xbox 360, this game has a very small fan base. It takes on average ten to thirty minutes to start a multi-player game. The wait sometimes becomes unbearable, when you join a game and the host tries to start it, but to be shocked by the warning: "cannnot establish connection to all players." It's like the xbox's "ring of death" scenario.The Good: The most dynamic game play seen to date. Beautiful tactics created by pre-teens and adolescents introduce a new kind of warfare never seen before. Each race has there own unique KINDS of unites. But at the same time seem to be on equal scales. You are never fully defended enough. Never. There is always a way to win, and always a way to lose. This game is the creation of everything a RTS game player desires. 10 for 10 in my book. I'm addicted to a unusual degree.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Hillhulk Just plain epic
Supreme commander is the game for the gamer who wants to go into hardcore as this game has the largest learning curve of any game I have ever seen. I have played this game since it came out. I have played WELL over 2000 hours in the game. Gone through 5 discs including a melted one in my 360. I have never had so much fun in a 360 game... We have a large community of players on the 360 who play supreme... The only downside of this game is that there has NEVER been a update in the game, and it can be hard for a new player to it. But there is nothing more satisfying then having a war that lasts for quite some time. p.s. folks don't rush unless you use t1 light assault bots on a t1 transport... I am willing to help anyone in the game who wants help... name is Hillhulk Smash. Ask me for help and I will help. There is the most versatile amount of warfare here. I am looking for another disc right now as my newest one broke... 5 discs THAT should tell you something on just how epic this game is... P.S. turn your fx down in the game or you will blow your speakers :D
Rated 1 out of 10 by C.D.S i dont suggest even looking at it!
This game is by far the worst RTS game I have ever played. The missions take about 2 hours or more to beat. The controls are way off from any other RTS such as Command and Conquer, Universe at war and Lord of the Rings Battle for middle Earth 2. I personally think they should try and stay with similar if not exact controls as some other RTS games. The graphics could use some work, and so could the storyline. The thing I hate about this game the most is the camera view. The sensitivity is set really high, and I hate the auto angle, it resets your camera so you're always looking at one angle of the map, and I for the love of god could not find a way to turn it off. All in all, this game sucks and should stick to the PC and stay away from 360, ps3, and heck even the PC. If you ever get this game as a gift I suggest you smash it with a sledgehammer and then burn it. And yes I really do mean that.
Rated 4 out of 10 by A Silent Gamer Supreme Commader on the Xbox 360
Supreme Commander is a game that needed a lot of fine tuning. While the maps are very unique and the game play being very interesting, the controls as well as several other things just seemed to be out of balance. While Command and Conquer and Universe at War have a very simple interface as well as commands Supreme Commander just seems to go over broad with all of the little things you can do. Whether it's having a structure aiding another or combining power plants with other things to make the efficiency better, it's just too much. The makers of the game had some pretty good ideas, but they're just not necessary. Another thing I would add is there is a noticeable imbalance between the power of the structures and the units. Due to this problem I had an extremely difficult time beating the first level. Whether it's due to this imbalance or my inexperienced game play I will probably never know because I don't think I can play this game much longer. I'm not saying it's a bad game but it's just a little too challenging for me. I would suggest that if you see it, you should definitely check it out.
Rated 7 out of 10 by forza3n00b Supreme Commander? Not very Supreme...
For a game from 2007, the graphics and facial animations are good, and the plot is laid out perfectly, but there are quite a few problems with the game. It takes a long time to load, getting to the "build objects" menu requires a lot of patience(while holding the right button on the d-pad, push the down button on the d-pad), and the only time my Xbox has frozen is on this game(I don't know if it's just on the Slim or not). Not to mention if you have more than 20 vehicles selected, the game lags majorly. The entire game moves slowly, and it is very easy to die, and hard to kill your enemies. The game is challenging, but not in a good way, more like a pull-all-your-hair-out-in-frustration way. The vehicles are pretty 20th-century for a game set in the 3300s. If you are willing to pay $10 for an okay game, go ahead. I'm going to GameStop today to trade it back in.

Wow, I cant believe they're porting it to the 360. I personally own both Supreme Commander and Forged Alliance for the PC. All around on the PC it is an awesome game that requires a lot of power to play. The strategy required to win is intense and really keeps you playing it for hours on end. Imagining this coming to the 360 is an odd thought, but it's not the first time I've seen a strategy game on the PC be ported to it. I don't own a 360, but I definitely plan to play this on a friend's 360 once it's released. For those who own a 360 and a powerful PC, I definitely recommend buying Supcom and FA for the time being. I promise it won't be a bad choice whatsoever. With Sins of a Solar Empire as a close second, this is definitely one of the best strategy games I've ever played.

I got it on the PC and it's pretty good. I wouldnt say the BEST game (then again the gaming market sucks these days). If you played Total Anihhilation back in the day then this is a MUST for you. It's pretty demanding on the PC and it takes a lotta time to win. If you plan that it's like the Command and Conquer series youre pretty wrong. Plan on one skirmish taking a few hours. It's fun--and theres a promise of new units. On the PC the units are all equiv. A tech 2 tank of one race is the same as another except a few tactical differences. This game is awesome IMO seeing its impossible to rush lol. GREAT grafics on PC (even on low quality), INTENSE and STRATEGIC gameplay (unlike C&C where it's whoever rushes or gets a superweapon first), and above all-- IT OWNS! =)
Rated 8 out of 10 by CrysisEliteStalker One of the best tactical RTS games in stores.
Anyone who doesn't like this game has never played RTS games in my opinion this game takes the ultimate amount of skill in tactics even people who spam experimental units the entire time won't win the match if someone there against is far more skilled then they are in tactics as such as base size as well. But I would surely recommend this game to friends for the aspect of good strong gameplay. Large amount of units. Large scale warfare insanely large maps for hosting such battles. Then the 3 campaigns which make everything even more great and perfect for what lies around the corner.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Hibblemin Broke until update.
I got this game with high hopes. The PC version was nuts and looked beautiful on the computer, however such is not the case for its port to the console. The game may have some of the biggest battles you can find in an RTS, some of the most strategic and deep warfare found in an RTS, but it also has some of the most bugs and issues I have ever seen on an RTS. While games like Universe at War and Command and Conquer paved the road for the RTS on consoles, Supreme Commander should be left on the PC. The 360 merely can't handle it. Frequent freezing when trying to save, watching the command unit glitch out and stick hills when dropped by transport ships, and even the dreaded freeze when beating a level stop this game from being a successful port to consoles. If an update is released fixing these issues I'd say you've got yourself a very good game, but we are talking a MAJOR update. Campaign missions consist of three different factions, all containing levels with hours of play, and two additional online modes not on the PC version are also included. Achievements are basic but some like " Beat AI on all maps on hard" take lots of time and practice. If you're interested in this game I'd say rent it and see if you can put up with all the bugs and glitches before buying it (also look for an update). Until then keep this game where it belongs on the PC, the 360 port does an amazing game no justice.
Rated 0 out of 10 by sarevok89 Great on PC, Skeptical on 360
Headline says it all. It's a great game on the PC, the only real downsides being the steep learning curve and the massive amounts of time necessary to finish a match. A good match on a bigger map can take several hours, only ending when players resort to multiple nuclear launches and cheap assaults. Controls are certainly going to be a problem, as far as I can tell. Micromanaging 1000 units (the overall cap on the PC) is hard enough with a mouse and keyboard, not to mention hotkeys. I can only imagine the nightmare it could become with a controller.
