Review An army of hundreds of heavily armed robots advance on your position. Your shields are up, perimeter defenses are guarding your resource generators, and production facilities pump out a steady stream of units. Under your energy shields, artillery, anti-air vehicles, and tanks wait to push back the attack, but your radar intel indicates the encroaching combined forces of the enemy may sweep you right out of existence. Then from your experimental production facility emerges a towering assault robot capable of absorbing enemy fire while pulverizing the opposition with devastating cannons. As the enemy brings down your shields and struggles with this new weapon, your air force bombards their artillery. You cheer at having averted the threat, but then your throat clenches as a 'strategic launch detected' warning chirps up. A missile is headed to the heart of your base. Because you forgot to build a defense silo, your hopes of victory fizzle in a nuclear haze...If the learning curve of the original Supreme Commander proved a little too steep for you, then you'll find a lot to like about the sequel. Gas Powered Games streamlined its resource and upgrade systems to make a game that's easier to play, but one that doesn't lose a lot of what made Supreme Commander so great in the first place. The pace is faster, the factions more diverse, and it's a whole lot easier to get the impressively large and powerful experimental units out onto the field, making for an experience that's more inviting and immediately rewarding. It's a real-time strategy game with a huge amount of depth and a fantastic interface that lets you stay in control of large-scale battles between warring robotic factions. The single-player campaign doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment, but if you're looking at this for the online play, you won't be disappointed.

Review The original Supreme Commander made waves on the PC, but on the Xbox 360, it barely managed a ripple. Bad bugs and abysmal engine performance overshadowed the satisfying and complex strategizing and made the game excruciating to play. If you were cautiously considering picking up the sequel, rest assured that Supreme Commander 2 suffers from few of its predecessor's visual problems. This is an inviting package for both veterans and newcomers--intricate enough to keep your mind nimble but welcoming to those daunted by the original's magnitude. Most importantly, it's good fun, letting you play with a variety of interesting units and giving you lots of room to experiment with all the tactical possibilities. The strategic joy doesn't go unhindered, however; pathfinding headaches, sound bugs, and predictable AI keep Supreme Commander 2 from reaching its potential. Yet while it isn't likely to challenge experienced armchair commanders, it still stands out for its fluid gameplay, excellent multiplayer maps, and the thrill of emerging victorious from a long battle of wits...The game-changing experimental units give you even more flexibility and can change the flow of battle in awesome ways. Some of them, such as the UEF's returning (and slightly tweaked) fatboy and the gigantic King Kriptor robot, are offensive powerhouses and as subtle as a destructive blast to the forehead. Others, however, take a bit more skill and produce much more unexpected and enjoyable results. A well-considered placement of the Illuminate's loyalty gun will convert invading experimentals to your cause, so that a hulking Cybranosaurus might end up mowing down its previous comrades. The space temple teleporter helps you take your enemy unaware, and using it multiple times in a row may lead to several concurrent scuffles. If you want more dramatic invasions, however, you can build some ground units within the UEF's land cannon and shoot them across the map into enemy territory. It sure beats a boring old transport ship...Whether you're a newcomer or a veteran tactician, you'd do well to overlook the flaws and enjoy Supreme Commander 2 for being so fun and approachable. The game maintains a difficult balancing act, providing the flexibility of the original Supreme Commander with a user-friendly makeover that lends some freshness and personality. This isn't the next step forward in console strategy games, but it controls well and performs well, making it easy to get lost in some entertaining robot-on-robot action.
