Good game overall,with some problems,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Supreme Commander: Gold (PC DVD) (Video Game)I bought SC as the unofficial successor to the old classic Total Annihilation, since its by the same guy. I find its as big and power hungry a game as I was led to believe. The maps are so huge you end up playing most of the game zoomed out so that the units are symbols (so much for the excellent close up graphics). Nevertheless the gameplay is good, once you get to grips with the strengths of the gear (artillery and special T4 units are great once youve figured how to use them right). The sound is nice, terrain and maps are well made, and the variety of the factions is a significant factor in gameplay. With a decent computer it runs fine, but its easy to see how a slightly lower end system would have problems (less so nowadays though). The multiplayer option is not very smooth, and hard to get into, with some obvious common gliches, but maybe with time I'tll get better.
In short, its turning out to be a good game the more I stick at it, but its been frustrating getting this far, especially since battles routinely take hours to play.
