    I played Sup Com 1 start to finish... and I only played the demo for Sup Com 2..

    Bleh. The units in 2 look cartoony, and they immensely dumbed the economy down to a point where its no different from any other RTS. I loved the economy in the first game with its continuous income mechanic. It made a lot more sense within the context of the game, how you can have perpetually running factories.

    With 2, each unit built subtracts the full amount from your resources, and if you run out, the whole factory just freezes, until you manually unfreeze it. What a pain.

    They could have made Sup Com 2 accessible to a larger without removing this (necessary) feature... now there's no way I'm buying 2.


    Rant aside, I think the game looks worse, and it seems to perform better than Sup Com 1. Which makes sense

    I played both supcom 1 and 2. I find 2 to be good in performance and 1 was buggy. Supcom 1 would hang in skirmish after 1 hour.

    Gameplay Supcom 1 wins by war. Gameplay was more complex which made it much more fun. Supcom 2 is too basic and looks the same.
