I tend to burn through games pretty quickly and then retire them to their destiny as shelf weights. For me, this is a renter. I will play one full campaign, maybe a part of the other two. Really get into the skirmish mode for about a week and be done with it.
For the console... SupCom2 is a HUGE improvement over the laggy and borderline junky play of SupCom. The only delay in action I have seen is about a second delay when a commander goes boom. Aside from that, excellent all around.
The unit cap is annoying but necessary and I always over build anyways. It has been simplified, but is still a game that makes you feel like strategy is heavily involved.
Online... well, you may want to wait for a few patches to balance out the game play. It basically goes like this... log on, start a game, and your commander is wiped out with a squad of 10-15 gunships. They are devastatingly lethal and have a tendency to brush off antiair fire when fully upgraded.
Overall... a great game that carries the full nostalgia of the old Total Annihilation series.
This game has alot of great features a good system for upgrading units and stuctures. The tech system to earn new units and buildings was a fun way to play it. Adding add-ons to some buildings i belive was a great idea to, I love good rts games where you can work on a good defence and its not all based off a "All in Offence" game play.
The only complaints i had was there could have been a few more units to chose from, nothing major just maybe some diffrent shock troop units or such. The multi players was decent excpet no way to ensure you and your frineds could play, perhaps adding a Lobby/Friend invite option would have helped alot. All in all a VERY fun game hated to send it back hehe.
