PostSubject: Supreme Commander 2 Demo Thoughts   Sat Feb 27, 2010 12:15 pm

It's out on Steam folks !

Here's some copy pasta from my PF blog:

Well first things first, it's a hell of a lot easier to run than the first, probably owing to the new graphic style of the game; much more cartoony and less gritty.

Right from the first few mins of the demo you get the feeling that this game is a lot less technical than the first.

In the first you had 3 Different tech levels and then experimental on top of that. In SupCom 2 You only have Standard and Experimental. In place of the tech levels, there is a customisation feature which allows you to add bonuses and features to your units, and unlock new units. While this has a nice RPG feel to it, I can't say I prefer it over the old style.
One other feature that seems like a watered down version of the first is the Resources. In the first you balance generating mass by using electricity, and making power stations out of mass. While some criticised this system because often new players crippled the economy straight away, leaving them wounded for the rest of the match. The new system simply has the player stockpile both Mass and Energy in continuous generation until they have enough of both to build stuff. But the fact that you can't start construction of units and such until you have the right amount of resources slows down the game quite a bit, whereas in the first game, a skilled player could manage the construction and upgrading of many units and buildings at once, with very limited resources, you simply can't do that now. This makes it easier for new players, but somewhat offends veteran SupCom players.

On the plus side, you can really tell that Square Enix have had some input into this game, even the relatively short demo has levels of story telling quite rare in RTS games. While I'm not expecting an epic storyline akin to an FF game, I am looking forward to see how much effort Square Enix have put into this.

The G keys are win. You can script almost anything to them. I even have a yo momma joke button. Razz

I have a second monitor to do that. Cool
Speaking of Dual Monitors, I bet SupCom 2 supports them. SupCom 1 did. It was a usefull feature, if not a bit performance hampering. Very Happy

Hehe, that is basically what the second screen on the G15 can do. You can make programs for it too.

Can you operate the screen by hand ? Or is it just a display ?
