Supreme Commander 2 is the sequel to the original Supreme Commander, an already amazing tactical real time strategy game. Does the sequel carry on with that legacy? I think it does. Lets find out why:
The graphics in this game are fantastic, but demanding. Turning every setting up to its maximum should be enough for cause nearly any computer to stagger, but it does make the game look very detailed and realistic. Toning them down a bit gives you fairly reliable gameplay, while still being able to watch the glorious sparks and explosions from battle.
The gameplay hasn't changed much for the original Supreme Commander, you still have 'tech tiers', each tier representing an increasing level of technology, and you still get a fantastic skirmish mode, but many of the units have been changed, or upgraded, and the gameplay is now a lot more varied, but with the same amount of action.
Nothing special here, really. Compared to the graphics, the sound really falls flat. Zooming into a violent battle, only to hear pathetic small explosions doesn't help you get into the game, although this is not surprising, considering it's an RTS. The voice acting is passable,but nothing special there, either.
Overall, it's a nicely rounded tactical game, that improves upon the Supreme Commander franchise. It's fun for the main part, especially in skirmish and multiplayer, but after a while it can get a bit repetitive.
