5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this game, Get both activated on Steam (no more?), February 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance [Download] (Software Download)
As of 2/23/12 The CD Key you get for purchasing the DL version or this game gives you SC1 AND SC:FA when activated on Steam. The key you get for buying SC1 on Amazon does not activate on steam at all.

EDIT: APPARENTLY THEY REMOVED THIS DOUBLE-BUY STARTING IN APRIL 2012

However, in my personal opinion, SC2 is a better game. I got SC1 hoping the hardware requirements would be lower for large skirmishes, but they really aren't. SC2 is often on sale on Steam for under $4 as well.

Confirmed, the key works on Steam and Steam says that I purchased "Supreme Commander and Forged Alliance Retail (Thirdparty)" and indeed unlocks both games.
At this price, this is a steal.

It still works. Just did it and have both games downloading on Steam at this moment. Can't go wrong here, two games for the price of one thanks to activating on Steam with the Forged Alliance key and getting both.
