Supreme Commander 2: Should I open it?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I just bought Supreme Commander 2 today to play with a friend. He can't get his copy to work, so I have no one to play with yet. I haven't opened the package yet. I want to know is the game really worth playing or should I just take it back to the store and get my money back?

If you liked Supcomm 1 and wanted a game that is similar, return it. Supcomm 2 is a different type of RTS that personally I found horrible compared to the first game.

No, can't believe it even deserves to hold the name of "Supreme Commander 2". Nothing like Supreme Commander, which was supreme.

I completely agree with you.....
The first was so much better.....
My personal opinion states in fact that you shouldn't have bought it at all

If you want to get yourself an idea you should try to check the demo wich was relesead a bit ago

(my impression is that the graphic didn't improve at all, even worsened sometime, bad IA with pathfinding problems and overall not good gameplay compared the first wich was just great)

I never played the first one. Would that change your recommendation?

100% without any hesitation return the game. I had such great times with sup com 1... This release is just an insult to its fans. Return it and buy something from Steam, quite a few deals out this weekend.

No. Return it and buy the first one.

Definitely return it and buy the first one... then give the extra ten bucks that you'll have (at least) and give it to your friend to buy the first one as well.
