Editors' review

Apart from short trial time, this game is superb in all respects. SuperPower 2 puts you in position of a leader of a country and lets you tweak its economy, manage political relationships with neighbors, research military technologies, build armies, and lead them into battles. The demo allows you to play a single scenario for Russia with 90 minutes limitation, and that would be just enough for you to read the game manual (look for it in the game s directory) and try it out. The management of the country goes on the globe, which has high-detailed graphics and looks like earth from space even with shifts of day- and nighttime. Clicking on various buttons or armies brings up many menus. SuperPower 2 lets you regulate the laws of the country (even allow or prohibit same-sex marriage), get into numerous policy settings, and observe much statistics. We were impressed how many little things this game lets you to manage. A plague for some strategy fans, but a blessing for other, the wars are not of much interest in SuperPower 2, because all battles are commanded by your generals, and you have to sit and watch. Your role in wars is limited to building armies, designing, selling, buying units, and sketching the routes for maneuvers. A great thing in SuperPower 2 is its engaging music. Fans of economic strategies with fast connection should try this demo out, and odds are high they will seek for the full version after that.

    "Indepth, fun, educational, yet it has STARFORCE!"

    September 06, 2005   |   By webgovernor

    Version: SuperPower 2 demo

    Pros

    Very in depth gameplay coped with a stunning enviroment and advanced AI. Well, the BEST ai i've come accross in a long time...

    Cons

    I had several system crashes, I'm assuming Starforce is the cause of these errors, after removal, my systems performance returned to normal. My suggestion, "edit" the *.ins and *.exe install files, search for line pertaining to the installation of starforce, and recompile the .exe file...

    heh...

    "Starforce"

    February 08, 2005   |   By analogue

    Version: SuperPower 2 demo

    Pros

    Good game

    Cons

    This game has starforce in it, which installs a bugged CDRom driver into windows and renders it unstable.

    Don't buy it !

    "Uses Starforce"

    January 10, 2005

    Version: SuperPower 2 demo

    Summary

    The full-version of this game will install starforce on your system! Starforce is the absolute worst game protection system on the planet that tries so hard to prvent pirating it hurts it's costumers more than the pirates. Starforce WILL slow down your system and cause instability. In some cases it even has destroyed entire systems. If this game didn't use starforce it would be great but it does, so a warning to all DONT LET STARFORCE INFECT YOUR SYSTEM! DON'T BUY THIS GAME! BOYCOTT STARFORCE!

    "Awesome Demo, Can't Wait to buy game"

    September 25, 2004

    Version: SuperPower 2 demo

    Summary

    Awesome demo. Of course certain things had to be taken out to make the demo smaller, but if this is any example of what the full version will be like, you can bet its worth the money.
