Just looking for a little insight. I know it has been asked before..

BUt which game is a better single player experience, this or SC?

I believe I already know this one, but which is a better strategy game this or SC?


I ask because I normally player MP SC with a friend who will not be available to play for sometime so I would like to get in and learn this game but not if its not a good SP experience.


Thanks...

It's a decent AI. It will be a bit more aggressive if you give it an advantage in experience and especially in supplies.

Not sure if in SC you can up the AI...but in this game you can actually give the AI more if you want.
Just need to learn a little programming.

Perhaps give them more units if they seem to be to easy...or more supply trucks to keep them sustain attacks.

I like that option.

BUT AI does not think like a human so...I do not find them overly challenging in games that require a lot of strategy mixed with tactics.

IMHO the AI, in WarPlan is better than the average AI on these kind of games, in fact one of the best I have ever played.

And it gets better with each patch.

There is a good MP community with Warplan too. Give it a try. Warplan PBEM is very good.

I will say when I played the Uber Axis...they did things I never thought of...

Operations Sea Lion...
Invaded Spain
Invaded Portugal
Took Gibraltar
Took Vichy France
Tried Vichy Africa but got beat back.

But it was a lot of fun...France just folded under Germans maxed out...Russia held though which was strange to me...thought they would roll over them.

I did like SCII a lot, especially some of the mods, but WP is more fun, that's for sure: not least because the weird is always possible but brings problems as well as benefits to both sides.
