Summary: I ordered it for my Computer running Windows 8. I have other games running on Windows 8 and have no problems. I use to own Star Trek Armada but I lost the CD. So when I found this one I was excited about getting it. It arrived and I loaded it on my computer and was sad to say it would not work. I contacted the seller to arrange for a refund which they had no problems doing but at the last minute I remembered I had a old laptop.
Summary: When it came out, I didn't quite understand it, plus the computer I had at the time wasn't capable of running it. It wasn't until 2004 that I had a computer capable of running Armada (and a couple other Trek games) smoothly, but by that point, finding Trek games in any video game store had become almost impossible thanks to Activision dropping the license and suing Viacom.
Summary: Classic but a great game. You will want to download the Millenium Project 1.9SE online and it makes it BAD ASS. I helped design aspects of the MP mod way back in the day when this game came out, a bunch of good guys that made a great mod. 10+ years later and I still play this game.
Summary: I thought originally the size of the files for the game just wouldn't load onto my laptop with a lot of space was taken. Now I have a brand new desk top and the disk will not even begin to upload on to the desktop. Second game I have got from online that didn't work.
Summary: This has got to be the best Star Trek game ever made even for its time. Even if this game is now several years old, it worked well under my Vista (Home Premium) computer (but has to be set under Windows 2000 compatibility mode and visual settings disabled; to do this, find the exe icon called "Armada", right-click on it and select Properties, then in the Compatibility tab, check the box that says "Run this Program in compatibility mode for" and select Windows 2000).
