Summary: I'm a big real time strategy fan, and when i saw that star trek came out with a game that gives me the power to create and command ships in that way,i was excited. when i finally got it it was filled with nothing but disapointments. first you'd think four different races from the galaxy would be different to use no. they're all the same, just a few cheesy special weapons.
Summary: Star Trek Armada promised to be what Trekkies had always wanted, a strategy game allowing control of the fantastic ships of the Star Trek universe. At a first glance Armada appears tto do just that. However, beneath the glamarous surface, Armada hides a rather dissapointing game play. The graphics of Armada are fantastic, truly capturing the different ships and creatures in their best lighting, you could truly be looking at the special effects of a Star Trek episode when...
Summary: Every time I have bought an activision game I have loved it. But Armada is not a game like that. Its major faluts are:bugs(it crashes every few minitues) AI (the computer has yet to beat me) patches (Activision stopped makeing patches!) and that it requres a fast computer to run well. However the graphics are good and it is fun when it isnt crashing. Buy this only if you are a trekke and rich.
Summary: I've played ST: Armada all the way through all the scenarios and I must say that while the game is fun, the Borg were made just way too powerful. The Federation ships are ok, but the Klingons and the Romulons are too weak to be belived. Not to mention that the AI is NOT (intelligent, that is). When I play multi-player, I play the borg and it's a rare occasion when I loose ships and/or structures to anything but stupidity.
Summary: Straight and simple: Wait for a couple more patches. It has the potential to be a great game, but the game is presently just loaded with bugs that Activision was just too lazy to fix in the Beta versions. Buy it, but not yet.

Summary: Do not even assume for a moment that Star Trek: Armada has any resemblance to Relic's Homeworld, the two are about as closely related as Woody Allen is to Arnold Schwarzengger. First off, it has the longest install process of any game I have ever played, and I have a 48x CD-ROM drive. Second, the interface is monstrous, even though it looks elegant and simple.

Summary: When it comes to space operas like Star Trek or Babylon 5 you can have all the square-jawed heroes, but what you really need to give a show that extra edge is some really nasty baddies. Bablyon 5 pulled this off well, featuring the evil Shadows, with their jet black ships and sneaky plots.
Summary: Auf grund von anraten von Freunden lud ich mir erstmal die Demo von diesem Echtzeitstrategiespiel runter. DSL gelobt flutschten die gut 70MB recht schnell in meinen Rechner. Gebannt spielte ich die 2 Demomissionen durch und entschloß mich kurzerhand das Spiel auch zu kaufen. Voller Vorfreude installierte ich das Spiel und spielte die ersten 4 Missionen der Föderation.
Pros: Eigentlich geiles Spiel, wenn es denn läuft
Cons: Bei mir nicht stabil zum Laufen zu bekommen ! ! !
Excerpt: ...delle mie serie televisive preferite Star Trek!!! Prendo il gioco lo installo, e sono ancora più entusiasta dell'intro, che pur non essendo graficamente un capolavoro è molto intrigante. Inizio il gioco e rimango subito perplesso dall'ambientazione, lo spazio. Naturalmente non potrebbe essere differente, uno scontro tra astronavi firmate Star Trek non potrebbe svolgersi da nessun'altra parte. Il punto è che essendo abituato a dettagliatissimi paesaggi, ...
Pros: Primo uscita di Star Trek di questo tipo
Cons: Mancanza di dettagli, pessima ambientazione, difficoltà nel manovrare le navi
