Forum Overview :: Supremacy - Four Paths To Power
 
I found a positive review online by I need clarification 03/10/2005, 12:51pm PST
Oh wait, no. I meant I bought the game and played it and it's really great!

I'm not the world's biggest space-based RTS player (I've never played Starcraft or Homeworld), but so far I'm really enjoying S:FPTP. These games always make me feel smarter than I am. Until I hit the inevitable wall and realize that you actually have to think about what you're doing.

There seems to be a lot of complexity built into the game (ie. units, upgrades, etc.) which is usually a turn-off for an idiot action gamer like me (according to Jaffe, I didn't even upgrade Kratos correctly when I played through GoW), but after playing the tutorial and a couple of missions, it becomes pretty clear you only need to make it as complex as you want to. So far, at least.

I like maneurvereuring my ships around for a while, then suddenly launching my planetary assault and taking it to the dirt. It's like two RTS's in one! Fuck, where was this game four days ago, when I had a cold and was apartment-bound? Now I'm leaving for Australia...

Anyway, I'm very impressed!

I guess I suck at writing game reviews, though. Another extremely useful skill I don't have. :(

Wait, what's this?



But, but...

NICE STEALING OUR FACE SCAR, K-THOWAH! >:[
