Now this won’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s played it, but the great reviews for Supreme Commander just keep streaming on in. GameSpy scores it a 4.5 out of 5, while Strategy Informer awards it a 9.3 out of 10. It’s really a vindication for long-time Total Annihilation fans like me that this style of gaming is finally getting the critical acclaim it deserves. All of my friends and I have loved Chris Taylor’s RTSs for years, and we’d have been really disappointed if his latest wasn’t given the kudos it deserved. Well, luckily, it was. The average score across all of the gaming review sites is very high. Go Supreme Commander!
Also, some tantalizing screenshots for Empire Earth III have been released. I remember playing the first Empire Earth game; it was a lot of fun. It’s kind of like Age of Empires, but across a much longer time range, and on a bit more of a massive scale (like, say, Chris Taylor’s RTSs). I’m definitely going to give Empire Earth III a whirl when it comes out — if I’m done playing Supreme Commander by then, anyway.
