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 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).
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.Read more ›
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.
