All in all Supreme Ruler is a solid game. I enjoyed the hours I put into it, once I started figuring out how to not completely suck as a world leader. It’s not big on flash or photorealism, but for the intended target those things aren’t what matters. Having spent time looking at the forums and user suggestions from Supreme Ruler 2010 it’s obvious that the designers took user complaints to heart and strove for a better strategy experience in 2020. I believe they succeeded.

Top Gaming Moment: Having all of my production items in the plus for trading. It didn’t last long, but no red negative numbers was highly satisfying.

Both in comparison to the first Supreme Ruler and as a stand alone the game is technically nice to work with. The visuals and sound are both well done, providing for a variance in experience depending on which area of the map you?re playing in. The mouse controls the camera in and out and you can move just about anywhere on the mouse with a right click drag. Information is available from each area by hovering over it where stats are displayed as to what it is and how it?s doing.
