C&C3 vs Supreme Commander

Postby Ghost Stalker » Tue Mar 06, 2007 4:31 pm

The hot battle (lol?) between Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars, and Supreme Commander tightens up, with SC released, C&C3 being released this month. Who will be thy winner of the new age RTS? Who will take the trophy of "The better RTS game"?


What do you think?
Yep.

Supreme Commander FTW!

My first time ever I used that abbreviation on these forums. I hope that gives you an indication of how serious I am. I'm definitely looking forward to CnC3 too, but after having played the demo, I don't think they can ever beat SC. I hope I can buy Tiberium Wars on release, by the way. I'm in Toronto due to a school exchange project, and I've heard Canada is cheap. Does anyone around here know the price in Toronto?

By the way, I already mentioned this here.

Nope. It will be Darwinia... for no matter how long I have CNC3, I will still be coming back to the awesomeness that is the Darwinians, and I'm sure many others will be as well.

Which just shows how good Starcraft is. He wasn't on the list and it still won :wink: (Darwinia and Defcon are a different type of RTS and I'm not considering them)

But if I'm absolutely forced to choose between any of those two, then my answer is : *Drum roll* Neither.

I'm not particularly interested in none and they wouldn't even run in my PC if I tried.

That shouldn't keep you from trying. Supreme Commander runs on my 6600LE... :P

Although my system doesn't like large skirmishes. When starting a 6-player skirmish (or more players), nothing happens. And I'm running the lowest possible settings...

But I still enjoy the large fights in Campaign mode.

I"m going to side with C&C. I've been a loyal follower of the series for since 98 or 99, so I'm excited for the next installment.

Well let's look at C&C pedigree.

C&C: Absolute classic.
Red Alert: Brilliant.
Tiberian Sun: Erm, not that good.
Red Alert 2: Well it's ok, but not as great as the others.
Renegade: Absolute shit.
Generals: America vs terror, and the gameplay sucked too.

As you can see since EAs take over it's been pretty much downhill. Sure might prove me wrong, but I don't hold much hope.

Total Annihilation: Absolute classic in every way. Better then C&C.
Supreme Commander: Short single player, but in lans it is fucking great.

In short, Defcon owns. :P

Command & Conquer all the way for me, played the games back when I was a kid and loved 'em. Tried Total Annihilation and could never get into it, Supreme Commander feels like the same to me and I just cannot get into it.

Played the CnC 3 demo and it felt so much like the old games (to me at any rate) so I'm rather pleased with that aspect, and of course I am euphoric over the fact that Kane lives again!

Chess, although I need to upgrade to battlechess

Seriously, the best RTS unit building games I've ever played is either C&C1, Homeworld and Cataclysm (Still haven't played HW2). If you're talking Non-unit building, in no order, Ground Control, Defcon, Harpoon2, maybe Jane's Fleet defender...

IMHO, In general EA games have gone downhill, think it because they've looking for image rather than good old fashion gameplay, and my pet hate is releasing a 'better' sport version, rather than an upgrade....

Compared to my graphics card, that thing is state of the art.

It's an ATI Radeon mobility, almost five years old. I'm lucky enough that Dawn of War runs without slowing down much.

Oh, and my PC's CD/DVD drive hates DVD's
