  • Summary: The year is 2010 and the Major Powers of the world as we currently know them have disintegrated into bickering economic and military regions. The United Nations has disappeared, and in its place an organization with far sharper teeth referred to simply as "The World Market" has taken its place. Individual Regions are left to fight for power to dominate their neighbors, their countries, their continents, and then the world. Supreme Ruler 2010 represents the next generation of strategy game. Not another build and attack 'click fest', but a challenging simulation of political and military leadership. You control the agenda of your region as you maintain its economy, grow the support of your population, and strive to influence your neighbors. Through skilled management your influence and popularity will grow... Will you be a successful diplomat, who can increase your power through an incredibly flexible diplomacy model, or will you be a ruthless and ambitious ruler that lets your tanks and missiles speak for you?

  1. A brilliant, challenging and rewarding game.
  2. While Supreme Ruler 2010 is not the prettiest game in the world, it does have a lot of depth that will keep players coming back for ages.

    A great muitiplayer title, but a singleplayer one that’s alternately exciting and frustrating. I sincerely hope that Battlegoat Studios works on the AI and gives us more diversified scenarios, in the very near future.
  4. Represents a ton of commitment and hard work, and I commend Battlegoat on that fact. But they do have some issues in AI, complexity and general gameplay that still leave room for improvement.
  5. 70
    Admirably ambitious, yet also a victim of its own ambition, suffering from information/feature overload and a less-than-stellar interface.
  6. This is a game that requires so much studying and preparation, that only those hard-core RTS gamers that really enjoyed SimCity or Civilization may want to give this everybody-wants-to-rule-the-world strategy game a try.
  7. This game will find an audience...that could fit into a high-school gymnasium. [Sept 2005, p.70]

    Deepest-Strategy-Evarrr. Reviewers tend to score this game in proportion to the I.Q. they show in their writing. Part of that is the learning curve. Read the forums if you have trouble. Payoff is one of the best games you will ever play. Great for systems with decent CPU but mediocre graphics card. Or wait for 2020 in a couple weeks! Expand

    There's a LOT in this game - wargame, politics, resource/production, diplomacy, and more. A very well done UI and design given the amount of things that can be adjusted and managed. A system of advisors to help and keep micromanagement under control. Great battles! Expand

    This game is extremely engaging. It actually takes intelligence to play.

    The most fun I've had with a strategy game since Alpha Centauri. Deep gameplay, innovation, and a "do anything" design are just a few reasons why I like this so much. It's not perfect, (what strategy title is straight out of the box?) but it definately deserves a nine for somehow managing to be both innovative and fun at the same time. Expand

    Boy! PC Gamer must have some sort of vendetta against Strategy First. Not sure why this would be. PC Gamer doesn't have to shell out any money for the titles that they review. They are at least spared the agony of spending $40 on a game that isn't even worth $10, which is usually the case with a Strategy First game. And this game wasn't even half-bad. Sure it has some flaws. But it was still a worthwhile purchase. Collapse
