Summary: The basic real time strategy algorithm is alive and kicking. This is inevitably true with releases like AOE2 which succeed despite trite RTS implementations. ST: Armada is basic RTS set in the Star Trek Universe. There is little here for the non-avid Star Trek fan. I personally love Star Trek, and have watched the series since the first episode of The Next Generation aired.
Summary: As a long suffering Star Trek fan who wishes that not almost every ST PC game turns out to be a stinker, I am glad to report that this game turned out to be playable. Like Blizzard's Starcraft, you control each of the 4 major ST: Next Generation races in turn (Federation, Klingon, Romulan, and Borg), solving a series of liked scenarios for each, all linked through a common storyline. I'd wait until a patch was available before buying it though.
Summary: My first impression of this game was "Wow. Gorgeous. Amazing." In all fairness, this game is very nice to look at; all the ships look fantastic, as do the environments (although none of the ships are sized to scale; as a Borg fan, this bothered me a bit). However, there were a lot of problems...first of all, all the races are pretty similar in how they function..
Summary: I've spent the past couple of weeks playing this game and havemade it all the way to the Romulan campaign. Right now, I'm fightinglike crazy to defeat the Borg, and every time I come close, the game crashes on me. Of course, I could skip to the Borg campaign, but that would spoil everything, wouldn't it? Good game, but only if it didn't bomb out on me.
Summary: The game is excellent in every aspect, except that it IS FULL OF BUGS. It is very upsetting when you are playing for an hour or so and in the heat of battle, when suddenly the computer monitor flickers and your suddenly in windows. It's true and it happens a lot.
Excerpt: Star Trek Armada can only be described as a Star Trek themed Command & Conquer (C&C) look-alike in space. Anyone not familiar with Command & Conquer (the biggest selling real time war strategy ever!) it’s a mixture of fighting, attack and defence against a common enemy with construction of bases and vehicles with option of mining as a way of gaining finances.
Excerpt: I bought this game in the High Street at a reasonable price, and when I got home, I tried to install it. This went very successfully. However, when I tried to proceed any further, problems started. First, the multiplayer mode against the computer failed as soon as there was a war. Secondly, there were various other problems (too numerous to mention!) in the single-player mode.

Perfektes Star Trek-Flair und moderne Kompatibilitätsprobleme
7 February 2010
Summary: Star Trek Armada ist ein in die Jahre gekommenes Echtzeitstrategiespiel, das das Flair der filmischen Vorlage seinerzeit großartig auf den heimischen Rechner zu portieren wusste. Inhaltlich orientiert sich die Story an den Geschehnissen um TNG und DS9. Auf der Suche nach dem mysteriösen Omega-Partikel verschlägt es den Spieler auf vier verschiedene Seiten des Konflikts.
