  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!!!!!!!!

It also adds helpful fixes, content and balancing that can really improve the Sup Com experience. Expand

As others I am a fan of Total Annihilation (the starting game of it all) but you don't need to have played it to enjoy this game. It's unique, clever, and has long lasting re-playability. The ideas that originated in TA and in this game have really set the standard for other RTS games. Expand

    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.

It can be frustrating trying to select engineers who aren't idle, as more often than not you'll have to move your own troops out the way so you don't select them instead. Multiplayer also isn't very active as far as I can tell, but that aside this is a very fun, entertaining strategy game that I've played dozens of times over from years back, and I really think it's worth checking out Expand

    An interesting attempt to rebalance the great original game in this expansion pack ultimately killed it - Forged alliance multiplayer featuresAn interesting attempt to rebalance the great original game in this expansion pack ultimately killed it - Forged alliance multiplayer features tech 1 (out of 4 tech levels), and nothing else. Game ruined by a crying community. Real shame. Expand
