Product Description

Platform: PC | Edition: Standard

In the 37th Century, you are the Supreme Commanderof three races, with a single goal in mind—to end the 1000 year Infinite War and become the reigning power supreme. For a thousand years, three opposing forces have waged war for what they believe is true. There can be no room for compromise: their way is the only way. Dubbed The Infinite War, this devastating conflict has taken its toll on a once-peaceful galaxy and has only served to deepen the hatred between the factions. After centuries of struggle, the battle for supremacy has at last reached a turning point. Under your strategic command and leadership, will your faction will reign supreme? Will you be victorious and elevate your race to domination? Or will you lead them into the hell of defeat and ultimate extinction?

When I first bought this game I wasn't sure about it, the game seemed much to complex for it's own good and everything just went slow because I didn't get it. Despite this I stuck with it, watched the tutorials and other players replays and learned all the games great tools that help you manage the game and wow the game got a billion times more fun and faster.

I have a relatively old computer, going on 2 years and after hearing what a system hog people were saying this game was I was pleasantly surprised to see it runs smooth even with tons of units on the screen yes I have to run the settings on low, but another great thing about this game is it's support the games only been out a couple of weeks an there are already 2 great patches that solve a great deal of issues people were having. In the latest patch they even seemed to have made the game look much better on the lowest settings. One example of the great attitude the developers have is that they took the safedisk protection out in the latest patch, because many people were having problems with it.

The game also has some fantastic unit AI, some of the best I've ever seen, yes they can get a bit confused if you give them outrageous tasks, like say trying to send 1000 units at once through a very tight choke point, but if you use the games fantastic order queue system that lets you give any unit extremely complex routes then everything will be dandy.

The best thing about Supreme Commander is the sheer depth of the game, his isn't your grandpa's CnC game were all you had to do is mindlessly throw tanks at your opponent, oh no you need to mix a great variety of units and structures for defense and offense to be successful over land air and sea.

The online client is better then battle.net!

I am a long-time fan of Total Annihilation, so I had to pick this game up immediately. It is very worthy successor. It uses very similar gameplay, but expands it with enormous maps, original campaigns, and some unique "experimental" weapons. It takes a long time to clear a map (2 hours minimum), which I prefer to short scenarios.

The hardware requirements are pretty high, but it runs well on my [...]PC. I did have problems with the sound being out of sync, but I just had to update the drivers for my Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS. Make sure to update your drivers! It doesn't run well at the highest graphics settings - I am tempted to upgrade my PC just for this game (P4 3.4 GHz, ATI X850, 2 GB RAM).

I was a great fan of Total Annihilation. I'm a fan of the RTS genre in general. I played SupCom online for a couple months but ultimately I have to confront the fact:
This game stinks. I desperately tried to enjoy it but I can't honestly suggest it to other people. I played for as long as I did hoping it would improve with patches, and while they fixed a lot of technical problems, the gameplay problems still persist.

The game *engine* is fantastic. It looks awesome. The battles are great. The units look fabulous and there are some fun and unique takes on some of the high tech units (the ones always featured in screenshots).

The problem is the gameplay is just horrid, both for online and offline play.

First of all, you should have dual core to play this game. They have done a lot of performance improvements since the game's release, but if you want big games on the big maps, you need dual core. Consequently, trying to do 3v3 games online is a nightmare as no manner how much you stress that everyone in the room needs dual core and they all say they do, invariably one player will not have it and the gameplay will bog down to intolerable levels. Online multiplayer gaming can frequently become unplayable unless you just stick to 1v1 on smallish maps.

The game has Vista problems (or Vista has problems with this game). It tends to crash on Vista during big games. So don't use Vista if you can avoid it. This is just another way big 3v3 matches end up failing -- if someone doesn't bog the game down with their slow computer, someone will crash out because they're using Vista.

The economy is unique and horrible.

Supreme Commander has its roots in the old (but great) Total Annihilation game. If you liked TA, you will like Supreme Commander even more. Probably the thing I like the most about this game is the intuitive interface for commanding your forces. Using the mouse-wheel it allows you seamlessly zoom in/out of the battlefield. But, the cool addition is that wherever your cursor is located; the scroll automatically zooms to the coordinate. I wish Google Earth would implement that feature too! I've only played the demo, but the tech trees are intuitive and seem to be fairly well balanced. Like others have said Supreme Commander uses the same type of ranking system that was used in the highly successful HALO2 online play. This system is based on the ELO statistical system, which was originally created for chess rankings, but works quite well with online games! I truly enjoy auto-matching with equivalently skilled players much better than "join a server and hope your good enough" online play.

The only downside I can see to this game is if you do not have a fairly high-performance system, you may have difficulty running this game. So, I would recommend running the demo before you buy the game to make sure your system can handle it at the level of detail you would like to play it.

Have fun!
