  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.

    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. [March 2008]

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

    Greatest RTS ever! Resource system is ingenious, at least i think so. The game is very complex, has so many units, four factions total, GIANTGreatest RTS ever! Resource system is ingenious, at least i think so. The game is very complex, has so many units, four factions total, GIANT units, great command structure, incredibly massive scale, Naval battles, and air power the likes of which I've never seen in another RTS! But over all, this game is a huge step forward for RTS games, and a glorious, shining example followed by no one : (
    If you love RTS games, and your computer is high tech, you will love this game, if only Chris Taylor made supreme commander 2 like this game. I say again, GREATEST RTS EVER!!!!!!!!

    Whats more I have not played any other strategy like it really. The base building is interesting to play long after first playing it and units are numerous enough and give plenty of options and create an interesting learning curve and to enhance creativity. It is like RTS fused with some kind of puzzle game - given there are so many buildings to build and certain arrangements of buildings matter!

    The story and universe is well fleshed out I thought, though some bits are a bit text book (as are the best of game's), overall it is pretty good for a science fiction game based in space.

    Some people will complain about it not being simple, but if you learn the basics and push your opponent hard, you can break them that way - although , its like anything, you give it the time - and it will become easier.

    There are also online communities like Forge Alliance forever which are still popular and certainly keep the game alive - the best multiplayer carnage I have experienced for an RTS hands down.

    I would rate this the best strategy game I have played not only as it feels nice to play and the innovations with the strategic view which makes getting about the battle field (which are huge in scale incomparison to other RTS) but because of the complexity, though there are lots of other things that are good about Sup Com.

    The game that makes Starcraft 2 look outdated.

    Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance brings a unique feature set to the table that should have set new standards to the genre. The user interface gives the user to stay in control even in the largest battles with thousands of units, all fulfilling their roles on the battlefield, from tiny. cheap and mass produced units up to the gigantic experimental units. True real-time strategy on small and large battlefields, a game that enables the player to really play out their strategies under constant pressure of battle. So far the best game the genre has to offer.
