5.0 out of 5 stars My Critique: Awesome, with some flaws September 24, 2012
By No Name
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
First of all, I love this kind of game. I'm not particularly good at them, but I love them nonetheless. If you don't like complicated war-games that require an hour or two of reading the manual and paging through "Tip of the Day" tooltips before your first attempt, then this game isn't for you, right off the bat. It isn't instantly intuitive like Civilization 4 or 5. It requires a time investment and some experimenting before it can be fully enjoyed.

This game seems more complicated than Europa Universalis 3. I'm not sure that that's really the case, but in certain areas it really feels that way. There is more to this little studio's game than there is to EU3 when it comes to country backgrounds, war mechanics, diplomacy, and trade... every detail seems to be in place... Each country has its own backstory and predesigned situations, which EU3 sorely lacked when it came to Asia. I played as Taiwan and there were scripted events and dialogues and reasons given in-game for China's unwillingness to make deals with me. There's a briefing on each country and its problems and challenges when you select the country you want. Everything is very well thought out and I was incredibly impressed by the depth of the world.

Furthermore, the actual mechanics are very deep. You can micromanage as much as you want, or you can let your advisors do most of the heavylifting. That suited me just fine, at first. I soon found myself running a socialist utopia, with the world's greatest health care and social programs. The trade system takes some getting used to though, but it's incredibly deep and not all that unintuitive when you sit down and try to figure it out.

There is so much to do in this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the casual gamer. June 29, 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Supreme Ruler 2020 is probably the most complex strategy game on the market today. This is not an understatement. It's not exceptional by a long shot, but it does have some rather impressive features. First off, the game takes place on a global scale, and Paradox used actual satellite imagery to make the maps. The music is rather bland, and gets old quickly as there isn't much variety. In fact a single track repeats for most of the time you are playing, so it gets on your nerves after a while. The gameplay is more "Settlers of Catan" than Starcraft, this is to say that this game is geared towards those who prefer something a little less frantic when it comes to strategy games. Essentially you take control over an entire nation, and manage every aspect of it. From taxes to research, to social services, and the military. There are objectives and scenarios that pit you against some opposing force, which you must overcome eventually. The pace of the game is rather slow, and it needs to be, because there is a ton of stuff to do. If you can find a demo or perhaps watch some Youtube footage prior to purchasing, I would strongly recommend you do so. While Supreme Ruler isn't perfect, it definitely deserves credit for taking strategy to a whole new level of complexity.

1.0 out of 5 stars This game has way too many bugs March 7, 2014
Platform for Display:PC
The game has so many bugs that it's not even playable. This is the ONLY real time strategy in the world where your soldiers will many times refuse to follow your orders. In most real time strategy games, you'll click on your soldier, click on the enemy soldier and your soldier go attack that soldier, right? Well, not in this game. In most cases, you'll click on your soldier, then on enemy soldier and absolutely nothing will happen. There are also too many weird things happening in this game. Once, I got 7 of my tanks destroyed by 2 enemy soldiers. Were those guys supermen? No, they were conscripts but somehow they were stronger than 7 tanks. There are also many times where your soldiers go stand right by the enemy soldiers, the enemy will attack you but your soldiers will not fire back. They will just stand there and watch as they get killed one by one. This game should have never been published, it has way too many bugs to even be an acceptable product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very deep game May 17, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Maybe too deep to actually be fun?
I think if you have an inner accountant in you this would be an amazing game to have. I like the RTS's where you feel more in control. Not a knock on this game, I thought I'd give it a try, just not my cup of tea.
I like games like Supreme Commander, Galactic Empire II, Endless Space, CIV 5, etc. But was looking for something with a little more depth. This thing has a steep learning curve with no hand holding. It basically says, here is our game, figure it out. If I had more time and interest I am sure I would find the game amazing. I just don't have 40 hours to pour into it to learn it.

If you like deep strategy and empire building games, this one will make your brain seize and cramp.

You're going to quit and restart over and over and over again. Youll either blow up your economy with insane debt, piss off your friends who keep trying to bail your deficit spending ass out with cash, or invite the strong militaristic regimes who notice you are weak and declare war. You'll get frustrated. You'll play for days before realizing as you are looking through submenus, OMG I can adjust that? Then it's all going to start clicking.

The learning curve is pretty high, but when you start sending columns of tanks, drones and stealth bombers down to Mexico and Central America like a locomotive of death and destruction, you're hooked. Then you start figuring out how to use navies. Then this game makes crack seem non-addictive. Entire weekends will disappear and you still wont have Metal Storm Weapons Pods and Stirling Solar Generators.

This game is a joy to play for deep strategy nuts. If you're that kind of gamer, then you have to get this game. There is no instant gratification and flashy graphics here, you have to work for everything. That makes it more enjoyable in my opinion.
