The most exciting part of playing Supreme Commander 2 is building huge armies and dispensing them to annihilate the opposing army. The game has a broad selection of options in building your army, which is why the pace of play is faster in this game than the original. The procedure for upgrading and building are more simplified and spontaneous. All upgrades now take place on a tech tree and you don’t have to cheat around with useless Tech 1 units and rebuild engineering squads to tech up a building. You can only have one engineer that's the same from beginning to end.

The economy has also been changed to a more conventional approach, which makes it easier for players to manage and maintain structures and units. In building your structures, two primary resources are necessary: mass and energy. In order to obtain the highest amount of resources possible, you need to expand your starting position on a map to have more extractor spots. With this, you will usually encounter an enemy. Research points can also be a great resource in the game, as it enables you to improve the effectiveness of your units, and also improve the defence of your structures.

In the original Supreme Commander, simultaneously enhancing your economy, while also fittingly assigning squads of engineers to assist is very strenuous. But you can save points and instantly unlock your favorite units. In Supreme Commander 2, the speed of gameplay reduces the fulfilment of getting these units in the field, but one of the benefits is that the game is more competitive and more prone to quick changes of momentum.

Another modification in the game is that the United Earth Federation, the Illuminate, and the Cybran Nation are now more distinct from each other. There are more units that only one army can use. This makes the whole real-time strategy game more entertaining. Gamers can choose a large-scale strategy or a smaller-scale approach.

However, the campaign is not that attention-grabbing compared to the original. The gameplay is boring because the first few missions for every campaign are too short and plainly serve as introductions to the armies. Every mission is designed differently and provides individual missions for each army, but the amusement value declines because you can already predict the next thing that happens as you go through a series of checkpoints in assembly line fashion. Another issue for the campaign is that the characters are shallow, which makes you easily forget them.

Still it’s worth exploring as even with the changes; this is still a hardcore game that is quite challenging in that it requires a lot of planning and thought-provoking deliberation before you can succeed.
