1.0 out of 5 stars Supcom 2 Is a XBOX 360 game ported to the PC, March 3, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Supreme Commander 2 - PC (Video Game)
Chris Taylor Lost a customer with this game. I played Total Annihilation, Supreme Commander and Forced Alliance. Supreme Commander 2 is not the same, it was designed for middle school kids who play only on XBOX.

If you by this game here is your warning.
First you install STEAM from your DVD. Then you enter your Key provided in the DVD case. Next, Steam "If not to busy" will start downloading the Supcom2 update, which takes forever. Mine took 4 hours at a rate of 400kbps. Then you need to update the Steam client. This is pretty quick. Then hopefully it will work and you can launch the game.... maybe. I say maybe, because some platforms are having issues and give fatal errors trying to launch.

If you get into the game you can play a weak campaign, a skirmish battle with no save, or you can go online with multiplayer.

The AI in single player missions is really week. It is also unbalanced. Your unit cap is 500 and the computer is 2000.

Jaded Gamer says:
Not justifying the download experience from Steam because slow speeds are never acceptable, but this game came out the same time Battlefield did on Steam. It was one big Chug for us all. The trick is to change your region in Steam. I live in Texas so I switched my region to the UK (where the Battlefield: BC2 was not out yet) and download a 6gb game in less that 2 hours.

I'm getting 2.5 MB a second and it took me about 15 mins to download...
Either your connection is slow or your just bashing steam.

The fact is that he bought a physical copy of a game that didn't have a large part of the game on it. How on earth is this acceptable?

If you choose to download games off Steam then that's all well and good, but purchasing a DVD copy, you really shouldn't have to put up with this nonsense.
