All in all, SR:CW is a really good game, with a lot of replay value and very authentic and addictive gameplay. With a great campaign mode, a Scenario mode, a Sandbox mode and just all round complexity and strategy that you will not see in many games these days, Supreme Ruler: Cold War is a truly amazing game.

Supreme Ruler: Cold War. It’s confusing, massive, sprawling and complex. Does that sound like fun to you? Because it does to me.

It may not be pretty, and it may not be the most flashy game on the market, but Supreme Ruler: Cold War packs quite a punch with its content, complexity and depth; oh and it's also loads of fun to get lost in, if you make it past the first five minutes.

Alles in allem ist „Supreme Ruler: Cold War“ Spielnahrung fürs Hirn und weniger fürs Auge. An tiefschürfender Komplexität kaum noch zu überbieten, bietet das Echtzeit-Strategie-Spiel einen unglaublichen Umfang an Möglichkeiten und Pflichten. Ddiese verlangen dem staatstragenden Spieler selbst bei langsamer Spielgeschwindigkeit alles ab und lassen nur wenig Spielraum für Fehler. Abstriche gilt es im grafischgestalterischen Bereich hinzunehmen, als Augenschmaus geht der Konflikt zwischen Ost und West nicht durch. Unter der wenig ansprechenden Oberfläche befindet sich jedoch ein gelungenes Strategiespiel, das jenen, die sich darauf einlassen und sich die Zeit nehmen, viele spannende Stunden in historischem Kontext bietet.

Dabei hätten wahrscheinlich sogar versierte Genre-Spieler eine Einführung in die verschachtelten Optionen gebraucht, die es ihnen erlauben, die Geschichte der Welt mit allen Details in einem absolut faszinierenden Spiel über beinahe schon alternative Realitäten neu zu schreiben. Diesen Anspruch erfüllt Supreme Ruler: Cold War erstaunlich gut und man kann sich auf Monate festbeißen. Und immer wieder mal fluchen, weil man im Truppen-Haufen der Schlacht um Gibraltar – geführt im August 1980 – mal wieder kaum erkennt, wer denn jetzt eigentlich wo vorrückt. Supreme Ruler: Cold War. Ist es eine Aufgabe, eine Berufung, eine Bestimmung? Es hilft, es als solche zu begreifen. Dann übersteht man die ersten Tage vielleicht und entdeckt die unerforschten Tiefen der Komplexität, die Welt zu beherrschen. Oder zumindest die kommunistische Volksrepublik Frankreich.

If you like your strategy games full fat and in depth, then Supreme Ruler Cold War is the perfect game for you. If you want to manage every tiny aspect of your country’s operations, you can. There’s also lots of replayability with the 16 player multiplayer as well as the Sanbox mode allowing you to pick whichever country you so choose. If you’re a newcomer to this kind of strategy game, though, you’ll probably want to avoid it, as this game is as hard to get into as Fort Knox. This is also not the sort of game you can just hop in, do a quick mission and then hop out again. It’s not for everyone, but if you can get past the lack of instruction and tutorial, you’ll fall in love with it.

Supreme Ruler Cold War è un gioco per utenti esperti che non guarda in faccia a nessuno. L'assenza di un qualsivoglia tutorial la dice lunga sul tipo di utenza a cui è diretto e la complessità e la profondità del titolo fanno il resto. Come contenuti è quanto di meglio, per il periodo in questione, si possa avere e desiderare, purché ci si rassegni a scendere a pesanti compromessi sul versante tecnico, dove il titolo non brilla affatto risultando addirittura trascurato. In definitiva il titolo BattleGoat farà divertire i veri appassionati del genere, mentre probabilmente si renderà difficilmente giocabile da tutti gli altri.

Supreme Ruler: Cold Wars ist eines dieser Strategiespiele, die man eigentlich nur Profis empfehlen kann. Ich habe wahrlich nichts gegen ein Spiel mit enormer Komplexität und viel Tiefgang. Wer das mag, kann sich hier so richtig austoben. Allerdings kann ich auch verstehen, warum alle anderen Leute vor diesem Spiel zurückschrecken werden. Die magere Präsentation, die kaum vorhandene Zugänglichkeit und die steile Lernkurve sind keinesfalls sonderlich attraktiv.

Het zal niemand verrassen dat Supreme Ruler: Cold War een aartsmoeilijke game is geworden. Door het gebrek aan een tutorial is het aangeraden dat mensen die nog nooit een game van Paradox Interactive hebben gespeeld, afstand houden van deze game. Daarnaast zijn de erg simplistische graphics gewoon een afknapper. Dat wil echter niet zeggen dat dit een slechte strategiegame is, integendeel. Je hebt belachelijk veel mogelijkheden en opties om te verkennen, wat dit een echt festijn maakt voor doorgewinterde strategen. En ook de schappelijke prijs van 29,99 euro is zeker een voordeel.

Трудно понять, зачем издательство Paradox Interactive взяло Supreme Ruler: Cold War под свое крыло. Его собственные проекты куда увлекательнее, пусть и затрагивают лишь самое начало «холодной войны».

Did I enjoy my time with Supreme Ruler: Cold War? Enjoy is probably the wrong word. I certainly appreciate its scope and ambition, and eventually the game began to grow on me, but the dearth of tutorship and the complete lack of direction in those early stages of the game will make it a hard sell to all but the most dedicated of strategists. Having said that, if you’re looking for what is probably the deepest and most complicated strategy game ever made, oh boy have you found it.

Nel dover giudicare Supreme Ruler Cold War non si può negare l'attenta ricostruzione storica, sociale ed economica, né si può evitare di lodare la completa ed esauriente esperienza che si ha destreggiandosi tra diplomazia, welfare ed esteri, in grado di appagare anche i più agguerriti esperti del genere (sorvolando su qualche scivolone dell'IA). Allo stesso modo l'estrema difficoltà, la mancanza di un tutorial e la povertà tecnica rendono Cold War un prodotto poco appetibile per il grande pubblico, in grado di strappare a malapena una sufficienza in una scala che deve tenere conto dei gusti di tutti.

Tirando le somme Supreme Ruler: Cold War è uno strategico pensato e dedicato ad una nicchia di pochi eletti in grado di capirlo e spolparlo a fondo oltre che apprezzarlo per la sua profondità e difficoltà passando oltre i suoi difetti tutt'altro che veniali. La completa mancanza di un tutorial ed un interfaccia veramente troppo confusionaria in grado di disorientare facilmente rendono questo titolo molto poco adatto a chi si avvicina per la prima volta a questo tipo di prodotti col rischio di annoiarsi seriamente dopo poco. La modalità multiplayer fallisce a tenere a galla un prodotto tranquillamente evitabile, anche dagli amanti del genere, in favore di un altro titolo di Paradox più apprezzato e rifinito, come ad esempio un qualsiasi episodio o spin-off appartenente alla serie Hearts of Iron.

Supreme Ruler: Cold War is one of the most detailed, in-depth and intricate strategy games available. But, of course, all this depth comes at a cost. It’s not as aesthetically pleasing as other games in the genre, and if you are looking for a game you can immediately jump into and start playing successfully, then go elsewhere. However, if you are looking for an in-depth, intense, demanding, no-holds-barred hardcore strategy game, this is the one for you. On a final note, BattleGoat Studios: For the love of God, include a tutorial.

Supreme Ruler: Cold War is a superb simulator. There are a ton of things going on at once. You can control things at a macro level, influencing policy, and you can control things at a micro level, moving individual units. Of course, everything between the two is fair game as well. In fact, it felt like there was too much to control. It's hard to keep track of everything, and there's no real way to know how to go about reaching goals. In a game, the player is given a goal, taught how to reach the goals, and finally allowed to try to reach the goal. Supreme Ruler: Cold War is more simulator and less game, showing users an in-depth simulation and welcoming them to see what effects their actions would have. Unfortunately, frequently there's little way to know what most actions would ultimately do. Supreme Ruler: Cold War gives you a ton of control over every little thing, but please, read the manual and be patient!

Per gli altri la complessità del titolo, unita alla mancanza di un qualsiasi miraggio di tutorial, fanno del gioco edito da Paradox un ostacolo troppo grande anche solo per pensare di affrontarlo con leggerezza. Capire a quale dei due schieramenti appartenete è solo la prima delle difficoltà che dovrete affrontare una volta scesi in campo.

Supreme Ruler: Cold War is by far one of the most in-depth grand strategy games on the gaming market. Though not graphically advanced, the oceans-deep gameplay speaks for itself. For those select few that enjoy complex grand strategy games, this game is a must as there aren’t that many Cold War history centric strategy games out there (Red-Alert doesn’t count). Combining all aspects of statecraft, Supreme Ruler: Cold War is a game that offers a wide range of paths to victory, which provides a high replay value. The game needs copious amounts of micro-management and it suffers from a lack of a tutorial which may be a huge turn-off for those looking to get into the grand strategy genre. But for the curious, it is worth a try.

Supreme Ruler : Cold War est une simulation géopolitique de la guerre froide exhaustive mais extrêmement délicate à prendre en main si l'on n'a pas l'habitude du genre ou de la série. Il faudra donc compter des heures de tâtonnement pour appréhender chacun des nombreux mécanismes présents dans le jeu et permettant de recréer fidèlement le postulat de l'époque, avec les deux blocs tentant de dominer le monde en plaçant chacun leurs pions sur l'échiquier mondial et de gagner la course à l'espace et à l'armement. Assez laid comme la plupart des jeux de ce type, Supreme Ruler : Cold War souffre d'un manque de finition sur certains points, ce qui ne sera cependant pas suffisant pour rebuter les férus de la période, qui se régaleront des milliers d'éléments qu'il faut apprendre à gérer pour l'emporter.

Supreme Ruler Cold War is, in general, a great strategy title, but it has flaws that, while sometimes easy to overlook, in this case, they don’t just stare you in the face, they flat out punch you in it. Supreme Ruler is a game that, if you’re looking for a change of pace in strategy titles and can handle issues in user-friendliness, it might just be for you. For other players, it’s best you stay away until the series is more refined. The best way to view it is to simply say, Supreme Ruler has an excellent vision in what it wants to be, but it either didn’t have the time, or the resources, to achieve its grand vision.

Who knows? If you can work out what the hell is happening, this might be a life-changing game of great beauty. I would love to hear from someone who’s got into it more, they could set the record straight. Me, I really don’t know what to make of this overall. It’s really dented my confidence that I couldn’t get to grips with it. I suppose I could therefore recommend it to someone who needs a bit of self-doubt, humility and confusion in their life. Simon Cowell, maybe?
