    i liked the orig starcraft a lot. and yes, its damned annoying when they abbreviate the same isnt it? lol.

    supcom 2 feels like they wanted to capture teh gameplay of starcraft.,thar, no abbreviations.

    Just played the first campaign and i near feel asleep, so boring. Ive never built a sub in such a short amount of time with no help lol

    Its so toned down from the first SC :shadedshu, and you needed a quad core to run the first one smooth, now even my single keeps up with it lol

    I like how they have dual monitor support. I actually got to use my second monitor on a game for once.

    supcom and FA both had that.

    pity it doesnt work with crossfire or SLI (not the games fault)

    What do you mean? My X2 with its Internal Crossfire makes use of it.

    when you use the second screen, crossfire gets turned off - at least in the original game. you can tell it pretty easily by comparing performance before and after.

    I havent tried it in a while, so it IS possible drivers have matured since then and it works (at least in crossfire) - if so, thats good news.

    I really fail to see how SC2 copies any gameplay elements from SC. Economy is different, scale is different, unit variation is completely different. SC hardly has a research tree.


    As for the crossfire thing, I cant imagine that making a big difference, my 8800 ran SC perfectly when it came out. I would think a modern card can easily run two screens on its own, it is not like SC was heavy on the GPU.

    because all the units act and behave the same, and its simplified down to the same level.

    supreme commander is ridiculously heavy on the GPU.. running 2x AA late game i struggle for 30 FPS (and that goes up when i turn AA off/add in the second GPU, so its not CPU limited)


    i still play sup com daily, perhaps your memories of the game is skewed.

    This game is an abomination. I finally got to play it and it's crap compared to the original supcom.

    I was struggling with the crappy UI. click and click and click and click and click and f--king click again...
    also, no synchronized marching, no group build, no build assist. Graphics and art style are actually worse than the SCFA.

    WTF is this shit?

    yes, you can just get the Forged Alliance and be happy playing it, but if you want to play online you will only be able to play as Seraphim. If you want to play as all of them online then you'll have to get the original.

    Supcom is SHWEEEET. Much better than the second and much better than total annhilation.

    I just DL it (thanks for the heads up) I dont know if its worth $50 but its definitely worth Free.

    Im playing it on 1920 X 1200 at max with a 5750.

    I actually have Sup Com 1 and really like it (it was a pain in the ass to learn how to get all the updates at first though)

    I played the demo mission 1 yesterday. I didn't mind it really. It was a pain in the ass about the lack of sonar/radar/visual range guides. And the "fog" would have to expand a bit, it was just a bit too short (visual range) for my liking.

    And that experimental was shit, either all the units are stronger now, or experiments are just awful. Or that wasn't a true experimental.

    It is a lot easier to play than the first one, SupCom it ain't, but a good RTS on it's own merit... we shall see.

    I can understand the demo requiring Steam to run, but why can't they make it so you can download it on non-Steam computer for later transfer?
