  1. I did have a working knowledge from having played the original, but I needed more than just a refresher. Fans of the series are definitely going to get more than they bargained for with this expansion pack.
  2. Faster gameplay, bigger maps, more units, and a new race? Did I miss anything?
  3. Supreme Commander veterans will love the new challenges in Forged Alliance, but newbies should get their feet wet with the original game first.
  4. Supreme Commander manages to excel on so many fronts that other strategy games fell short of, with giant maps and a monetary system that makes sense and simplifies making an army.
  5. If you're a SupCom player, think of this as pretty much your dream patch for the game, but with the unfortunate but understandable addition of a price-tag.
  6. This standalone add-on brings a campaign that consists of six missions, each one taking many hours to complete as it develops from a simple task to epic struggle spanning over half the planet. It's a must for every gamer who values the strategic thinking over the tactical action AND is a fan of this game - the difficulty bar went way up, also, some changes are so subtle that only a true afficionado can appreciate their profound impact on the established patterns of deployment.

    But if you're already a fan who bought Supreme Commander, this is a big fat middle finger from Gas Powered Games and THQ.

    It's a shame what happened to this series, from the unknown first installment and expansion to the ruined - from a SupCom standpoint - secondIt's a shame what happened to this series, from the unknown first installment and expansion to the ruined - from a SupCom standpoint - second (third) game which ultimately killed it. Install Sorian AI and get a friend or two and you won't regret it. That and you can build shield generators to protect shield generators. Expand

    Greatest RTS EVER. This isn't for the casual gamer or strategy gamer. This is for the hardcore strategy gamer. We're a rare niche and this isGreatest RTS EVER. This isn't for the casual gamer or strategy gamer. This is for the hardcore strategy gamer. We're a rare niche and this is most likely why this game will be the last and best RTS that is macro in it's scope and depth. It saddens me, but this is our last great game guys so buy it on steam and keep it alive.

    This is one of the greatest RTS games I have ever played. I love Starcraft games but I'm a slow clicker and that works against me in games like that. However, I'm a very good tactician and this game is amazing at allowing a person to strategize. The scope of this game is breath taking, you can zoom out and literally see hundreds of units or zoom in and see an individual unit.

    The variety of units are awesome too. You like air? Well then you can make interceptors, air to ground attack aircraft, or bombers that bomb little bombs to mini-nukes. Want to launch stratetigic missiles? Awesome, but remember your enemy could build anti-missile defense lasers or shields. You can also nuke! BoooM!

    Did I mention this game's visuals still hold up after all this time? In 2007 when it was released most computers choked on the computations needed to run this game, but today's hardware can handle it rather well. It looks good, very good for an 8 year old game.

    I still play the campaign. I miss playing on GPG net multiplayer and the fun games. This game is 8 years old and I still love it.

    To this day, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance remains my favourite RTS of all times. This expansion pack includes a new faction to play asTo this day, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance remains my favourite RTS of all times. This expansion pack includes a new faction to play as and a ton of general improvements on what made vanilla SupCom such a unique experience. Forged Alliance really pulls off what it attempts to do. It is face-paced by nature but games can last well over an hour. Economy plays a massive role and players have the option of bunkering down in their starting location or can simply pour all their resources into spamming cheap units. There's also the option of sniping; selecting a group of units, quite often bombers or gunships, and assassinating an opponent's ACU. There really are more strategic options than any other RTS I have ever played. The FAF multiplayer community makes this a 10/10 experience and has really kept the game alive. SupCom 2 simplified the formula and was generally panned by the fan base so it's great to see FA doing so well today. A classic game. Expand
