More Supreme Commander 2 Unit Trailers

Two more trailers are now available from Supreme Commander 2, showing off another pair of exotic experimental units in the real-time strategy sequel being developed by Gas Powered Games. One trailer shows off the mighty Universal Colossus, the successor to the Galactic Colossus from the first game, a mech which GPG's Chris Taylor says is "one of the most incredible units in Supreme Commander 2." The other trailer depicts the Noah Unit Cannon. Chris Taylor describes how units can be constructed inside the cannon, so that when the time is right, they can be fired across the battlefield and right into the action. Both clips are embedded below.

I played the demo for about 2 hours. I was going to post some of the things I was disappointed with, but in light of the overwhelming negativity towards the demo, I'll say what I liked.

The action is very similar to the first, which for me is a good thing, as I totally dug the action in the first one. The game seems much better optimized this time around, and the familiar birds-eye map is back and just as helpful as it was in the first game. The zoom still scrolls very smoothly between down in the action and up in space. It seems a little easier to select different types of units inside enormous armies, which was always a source of frustration for me in the original. The sense of scale, with big stompy robots, massive battleships, and huge armies is very good, as it was in the first. The overall Supreme Commander "feel" is definitely here, which is something I was concerned about.

The disappointments are the standard ones for any game re-designed to fit on consoles - over-simplified mechanics, smallish maps, weak textures and graphic assets. How much this will detract from the game overall will remain to be seen. I get the feeling those were fairly early maps, so I would hope that as the campaign goes on the maps would get bigger and allow for more varied tactics. Overall, the way-too-streamlined economy is probably my biggest concern at this point. The skirmish and multiplayer are still big question marks for me. Hopefully there will be a mp demo soon.

Overall, I can easily say that I liked this demo a lot more than most everyone else here.
