Supreme commander 2 it again like command and conquer but with a lot more weapons. There's a campaign mode Xbox live and skirmish as three different faction you can pick and compared to command and conquer. The AI actually helps you out in battle this is a great game. At first I hated it. But you have to give a game like this sometime. Gameplay is solid. The graphics are okay. I seem better. I would definitely recommend this game hope I helped

Supreme Commander 2 was an overall great rent, and a definite buy for fans of RTS games.
Campaign -The campaign was overall fun to play, but forgettable once you hit online. There are 3 campaigns you can play, and each faction is a campaign. Very good campaign to play, especially for an RTS game.
Graphics - An annoying, but convincing topic to many gamers, so here you go. Very nice visuals, and are very convincing, but not breathtaking. Effects are a bit odd, but overall a spectacular show to the eyes.
Multiplayer - Why!! The multiplayer consists of 2 game modes, 3 factions, and 1v1, 2v2, and 3+4 player Free For All. The game modes don't vary too differently. The maps are very nicely put together for a huge army to travel on. The biggest flaw of multiplayer was that there was only a quick match option for Xbox LIVE. With this, you cannot invite friends to a pre-game lobby and start the game. You can only search in Quick Match. The multiplayer is fun, but needs more balance.
Overall - Fun game to play, a rent for me definitely, but I can see how it can be a buy. Try it out, RTS fans!! Can't play with friends though and not much balance. Very fun though. Tons of replay value and lots to do!!
Now dont get me wrong; I'm a big fan of RTS. Civilization IV and C&C are always loaded on to any new computers of mine before I load Office 07. But never before have I found one that I've liked on any console, particularly the 360.
Lets face it- the first SC sucked HORRIBLY, so I was understandably leery of the second one. They finally got it right on the second one- good three pronged story line, multi faceted ways of playing, good graphics... and who doesnt like nuking an enemy into oblivion? I mean, literally nuking them off of a map?
This game may be a keeper just for when I have an hour to kill and just want to wreak havoc for a bit.
