Is it worth buying SupCom 1 too or...?
Hi. I have bought SupCom 2 because I heard it has smaller battles, so it would be easier to get a new player understand things. I liked it, so now I want to buy SupCom 1 for the massive battles, better system etc.

The thing in question is, I keep reading controversy about having FA only, including that there's only a single faction if you don't have the base game.

I am certainly going to buy Forged Alliance without question. But is it worth getting the Gold and buying the base game too? What are the handicaps of not doing so except not taking full part in the story? Are there any problems I'm going to occur into if I don't get the base game?

Forged Alliance is a FULL standalöone version, you dont need the base game, the only thing the base game gives you is the original campain
(the thing that you need the base game to play all faction was in the time of the GPG server GPGnet, which is not replaced by steam and FAF)

the story of FA is understandable if you dont played the base game, anyways i dont have the prizes in my head but i think getting 3 more campains (one for each, UEF/Cybran/Aeon) is nice

I'd say no, I ended up playing the base game after a long time with Forged Alliance, and I cringed when I saw the UI.

Ended up buying a game worth equivalent to one game to someone and they gave me a Gold one. I regret nothing. Thanks for the replies though. :)

I bought Supreme Commander 2 just because the first one was epic but only to find out it was total crap. :P

Yeah, the second one is not as good as the first one and forged alliance, but it's not a bad game either

SupCom2 is a good introduction to the series; nothing is an 'overwhelming victory' once you get it, like experimentals can be in SC1. However, it would be best to graduate them to SCFA after they get used to the scale of the game.
I like SupCom 2 for the better graphics and easier gameplay but sup com 1 and sup com FA is the♥♥♥♥♥
