This is a real good RTS game. It introduces new concepts in games, for e.g. massive experimental units. It doesn't allow turtling and that means that you must play actively attacking the AI. One of the best around, surely superior to current old concept based RTS.

Im reviewing this product too explain to people that its really not worth buying the new Supreme Commander 2, this one is far better. This Gold edition version features both the original SupCom and its expansion, both games are incredible and the gameplay, graphics, units and combat are all flawless, just be sure to have a powerful computer to run it all. Dont waste your money on SupCom2, come and buy this one instead, much, much better.

Before I begin, service from Amazon and GAMEZONE was perfect as usual, product arrived in excellent condition and quickly.

Now the game:

I adore this game. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best RTS I have ever played. It's as simple or as complex as you want to make it, the AI can be monstrous or child-like, depending on how you want it. It is the perfect strategy game.

It is true that it is quite an old game, but still requires a fairly high-spec computer to run well. I intend to buy a gaming laptop soon, and this game is the yardstick with which I will decide weather it is good enough for me to buy.

The package comes with two DVDs, Disc 1 being plain Supreme Commander and Disc 2 being the Forged Alliance expansion pack. The two serial codes are included on a sticker on the inside of the case.

As far as I am aware, this game is not available on Steam.

My recommendation? Buy it if you think you can run it well, or just buy it anyway and wait until you have gear good enough to run it. That's what I'm doing.

As I said, this is the best RTS ever created in my opinion. Patches are also available from various internet sources as THQ/GPG support is not exactly great.

Be prepared to alter the game's graphics settings if you're using a machine with mid-level or lower capabilities - but this game is worth it. From humble and struggling beginnings, it is very satisfying to grow and expand your base, increase your resources, and at last unleash a huge avenging warmachine to kick the insolent foe all over the map.
Be prepared for increasing and sometimes surprising challenges as the story of each battle scenario unfolds - be ready for sudden time constraints and long-distance transport tasks!
Although the game is clearly clever enough to accommodate many different styles of gameplay and personal strategic preferences, my own is for medium- or long-term defensive policies, during which I work hard on the gradual accrual of tech and resource dominance, topped off by the satisfying coup-de-grace - and this is a mode that the game rewards - all the really spectacular units lying at the far edges of the tech and resource curves.
The game makes you work hard for the biggest payoffs - the experimental units (with the emphasis on 'mental' as the different factions come up with some truly strange machines) and the mass-destructive weapons, but watching them in action chewing up your opponent makes it all worth while.
Fun, challenging, absorbing and satisfying.
On the other hand, the AI can be a bit samey, and can let you get away with too much delaying. The introduction to the expansion story in 'Forged Alliance' is confusing - the intro movie is dramatic but not very illuminating, and the supplemental 'timeline' animation is confusing in and of itself.
Still worth trying if you like strategy, though.

If you liked Total Annihilation you may well like this. It's more balanced than some of the other post TA mods, the downside is that the game slows as play continues and even toward the end when you are mopping up a few remaining units game speed will remain very slow suggesting that the CPU is computing for units that are destroyed. You would think this is quite a basic fault that would have been fixed in the patches, but oddly no. This means a 1 hour game on the game clock corresponds to several hours realtime. Using intel i5 2.3GHz 64-bit 8GB ram win7 laptop.

Other observation; as with TA the single player is tedious but thankfully you have access to the full build tree in forged alliance. The main thing you get is the skirmish mode. This game virtually lacks a third party modding community, unlike TA's scene which seems to still be active - 15 years after initial release. There is a lack of tools to tweak game parameters and unit costs and stats.

AI attacks in more ways than TA - airpower plays a far bigger role than TA, also the AI seems to know how to build range weapons just beyond your defensive range; however the AI land forces rarely progresses beyond tech level 1 so the dominant strategy is early game survival to the tech 4, then wiping the opposition out with experimental units. Base defenses are weak to force a strategy of aggression; sometimes you return from a sortie to find your base gone.

Pretty much summed this up in the title! I actually prefer some of the TA units, but as you keep playing you get used to the new methods and units and it becomes equally addictive.

Shields, upgradeable units etc, moveable way points and patrol routes all add to the strategy.

Thorougly enjoyable RTS game, but only for people without a life :) - it is far too addictive and time consuming for someone of my years! :)
