3.0 out of 5 stars Cold War on the PC 21 Dec 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Supreme Ruler Cold War is the latest offer from Battlegoat Games. It is, potentially, huge. I am expecting it will take me quite a while to even learn all the ins and outs, and a full campaign could take months to play.

The timeline runs from 1949 up to modern times. There are several "game speed" settings ranging from VERY slow to VERY VERY fast so you can take your time or sit back and watch world events rush by. You can also issue orders while the game is paused which is excellent while you are learning.

In the Campaign game you can play as the USSR or America. In the Sandbox game you can be any one of a very large number of other countries ranging from the UK right down to tiny ones like Ireland, although only the USSR and the USA get the option to use nukes. Yes, in the main Campaign game you have the option to push "the Button" and launch whatever nukes you have. In 1949, that is not many. If you are looking towards experiencing Armageddon you will need to research a whole lot of technologies. I have not played through to the 1960's yet but am guessing you won't have dense-packs of silos until at least then.

There is a multi-player option too but I have not looked at it, myself, as my internet connection is not the best.

I personally like the game very much as it DOES capture the flavour of the Cold War rather well, but you are warned that the learning curve is very, very steep. The on-disk game manual is sadly inadequate and the tutorial videos on You Tube are pathetic too. You will best find help on the forums dedicated to the game.

You control your chosen country by assigning orders and guidance to a number of Cabinet Ministers responsible for diplomacy, finance, trade, production, and defense.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much micro management 24 Aug 2012
By Easty79
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Not for me...

If you like massively over managing things and have mild OCD when it comes to gaming then this line of games is for you... I like stategy games but this was a bit far for me, honestly very very very very very very very very complicated. But if that's what you're into go nuts!

One star from me as it's not what I thought it would be and didn't enjoy it at all.

Three stars as I found it really quite boring. Im into this genre in a big way but this game doesn't have that little spark I was looking for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing game 15 Mar 2012
By Dakez
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I received this game, I installed right away with no problems apart from a little trouble of finding the code before realising it's on the disc so problem solved.

The game is actually very confusing since there's no tutorials, or book to explain things. You have to learn everything yourself (or look up on internet but to me, they weren't clear or i'm just an idiot). The gameplay is simple but yet difficult. Especially the economy, very bloody hard to stabilize especially when you're at war with a big or small countries. When there's an alert of warning of petrol is running low so I decided to ask my allies countries to buy barrels of fuel. I offered twice or third times the worth of petrol I requested from them and they refused. What the hell? With that much of money, they could build an army about five times what they have!

I was expecting this game is slightly similar to Tropico but a bit more detailed, worldwide and controlling the military. But I was wrong.

Honestly, this isn't my type of game although I might would get into it if there was a book explaining the things, tutorials is the most necessary for this type of game but there isn't any. Disappointed. It is actually a hit or a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game endless gameplay. 1 Sep 2012
By Airforcekid - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Paradox interactive never fails you just have to try this game to understand it fully for $10 its well worth it! Once you get the hang of it look into cheats for some more fun like what if mexico became a nuclear power and challenged the US leaving the soviet union out of it or the US joins the soviet union can the rest of the world stop their combined forces etc.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great 9 May 2013

Great RTS of the Cold War, but it is very detailed and you do need a good graphics card. Wish there were more
2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly optimized, no tutorials and difficult GUI 27 April 2013
By Ernest Manning - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The game itself is a great idea, but so poorly executed that it's nearly impossible to play after units start getting deployed. Nuclear weapons are under powered, the menus are not intuitive, all in all it feels like a very ambitious iPad game made by my 16 year old nephew with a Ritalin and Adderol problem.

Had they bothered to even put in a tutorial it would have helped greatly. As is they have an unofficial Youtube series of how to videos that are too short to be useful and too long to be easily digestible. The coding burns up system resources at a rate usually reserved for refinery fires and white phosphorus. I loved the original Super Power they made, but everything since has been pretty half assed
