They just dont make games like this anymore......simply brilliant. At the price of under $10, its an absolute steal!!...and you would be insane to pass this game up for that price....its worth so much more. I have spent the last 5 months playing this game every single day because you will crave it so much when you play online and try to employ that new strategy or tactic that you've been thinking about the night before in your bed!
This game will elate you when you win and frustrate you when you lose, but it will keep you coming back for more, the more you peel back the onion and learn new things
Forged Alliance is an EPIC game
I played Starcraft 2 from the day it was released (Waited in line at Best Buy for it and everything), and I was into it pretty hardcore for awhile. I got up to platinum solo as Zerg, and masters 4v4. Yes, it's an extremely polished game, but compared to SupCom Forged Alliance, it's completely underwhelming. As Starcraft 2 pro LiquidTLO said, SC2 is like a real-time tactics game, whereas Supreme Commander is a true real-time strategy game.
I never played Supreme Commander when it came out because 1. I was too absorbed with Warcraft 3 (Unfortunately), and 2. my computer wouldn't be able to handle it anyways. In 2013, with a custom built rig, I can run it smoothly and damn does it look good. Forged Alliance is just on a whole new level of scale. The battles are truly epic and actually require very specific tactical maneuvers. The giant experimental units and weaponry are truly something to behold. The massive explosion yielded by destroying an enemy commander is ineffable satisfying.
Overall, Forged Alliance is much more complex than Starcraft 2, but it is also much more rewarding. I wish Gas Powered Games had more cash and support to continue this series.
Fast forward years later. I saw Forged Alliance and as a curiosity tried it around 2012. Something just clicked then. The game was on a scope and scale unlike any other RTS I had ever (or will ever) played. The maps are kilometers large, battles can have literally hundreds of units participating at the same time, and the tactical zoom is a fantastic invention.
This is an RTS about macromanaging much more than micromanaging. Which is one of the reasons why it is one of the greatest RTS's of all time. It focuses more on strategy and intelligence rather than the dpi and click rate of your mouse. There are three classes of units, land, naval, and aerial. There are types of intelligence such as radar, sonar, stealth, omni, jamming, and cloaking. Long range artillery, strategic nuclear warheads, and three techs with devastating experimental units at the end are all factors in the game as well.
You start out every game with one unit, your Armored Command Unit (ACU). The ACU can build buildings and fight for you, and is the start of the virus that expands and multiplies to your hundreds large conquest of maps.
There are four factions. United Earth Federation (UEF) contains more hardy units that can take and deliver damage, but are usually slower and contain nothing special besides your standard tanks and guns. Cybran Nation is the faction focused on guerilla warfare, with many anti information options at their disposal such as jamming and EMP. Aeon Illuminate is a faction that can only do one strategy at a time, but excels at the one thing you do with them. Seraphim are the last faction, and similar to Aeon Illuminate, with a few different tricks.
Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is one of the greatest real time strategy games that will ever be made, if not the greatest. I highly encourage this game to anybody who thinks they know anything about the genre.
