Summary: It's close to the original Master of orion in terms of depth of structure/ base building, research and ship development which I didn't mind as it gets you straight into the mechanics of the game. I didn't mind the 10 year old graphics either as this is quite normal for x4 games. However it means it falls short when compaired to Master of orion II or even the overly complex III and the gal atic civilization series because it lacks replayability.
Summary: At first glance this looks like a great 4X Space game, it features all of the right elements, and blends Turn Based and Real Time elements quite well. Th graphics are quite well done, the Music I find rather good too. That being said, where the game loses all of its potential is in its combat mechanics. Combat in Armada, does not hold up to the title's name.
Conclusion: I bought this for a fiver at the local Game, and if I'd known it was going to be this terrible I wouldnt even have paid that much for it. The graphics are top-down, 2D.. when they work. This game crashes all the time for me and..
Summary: Wer Masters of Orion gern hatte kann sich das Spiel um den derzeit günstigen Preis durchaus kaufen. Begeistern wird es aber wohl nur eine Minderheit. Es ist wieder ein Strategiespiel bei dem man ein Volk führt und zu galaktischem Ruhm führen soll.
