Summary: I do like this game quite a lot, for a start its based on Star Trek, and i am a fan of the franchise, but also because the game itself is fairly good. Starting with the good, this game contains a campaign mode, with 5 different campaigns to choose from, a campaign for each race and a hidden campaign unlocked when all the other campaigns are completed.
Pros: Good amount of units, large variety of maps, good fun on multiplayer
Cons: AI can be too easy sometimes, suffers from the odd network problem.
Summary: "Armada" is a real time strategy game based on the "Star Trek" universe. It was first released in 2000 as a PC CD-ROM game by Activision. In the United States, the game received an age guidance rating of "E" which deemed it suitable for all ages. The system requirements to run the game are minimal but include: System: PII 266 or equivalent RAM: 32 MB Hard Drive Space: 600 MB Optical: 4X CD-ROM On the face of it, Armada is standard fare to the real time strategy genre.
Pros: Simple gameplay functions typical of RTS genre
Summary: Hmm, Star trek armada. I suppose an almost classic title nowadays, yet with still enough playability left to entertain you when there's nothing else to do. For a game released years back, it has decent enough graphics and sound, although the gameplay leaves something to be desired. The game will draw you into the world of star trek, but the the game isn't really balanced enough.
Pros: Good graphics for an old game, Good sound, and intuitive controls.
Cons: The explosions could be better, the ships could be balanced better.
Star Trek - Armada (PC): Star Trek Armada - Torpedoes away
4 September 2001
Summary: Star Trek Armada is a RTS like Command and Conquer however it is set in space. It follows the normal line of building up a strong base with enough resources to build your weapons of war. Resources can be gained by mining dilithium from moons or decommissioning captured star ships. The best thing is that it carries the Star Trek theme with ships and characters that all fans will know and recognise.
Excerpt: "...stratergy game and thought about star trek armada but u were worried u had to be a trekkie. dont worrie this is one of the best stratergy games out at the moment and i dont even have a clue who the romulans are i just know there ships dissaper every now and again. Its very addictive it runs well the plot isnt too long and the cut scenes dont take hours and hours to watch so all in all u just get to play. The graphics are really good and the units ...
Pros: good fun good graphics great gameplay
Cons: tiny bit short mission wise but always the multiplayer makes up for that either against computer enemies or across the net
Star Trek - Armada (PC): Gets Sloooow, annoyingly buggy, but great gameplay
14 November 2000
Summary: This game is slow especially with quite a few ships on screen, and multiplayer on the internet is even slower (for obvious reasons). Not just that but this game is very buggy with the graphic cards, as another reviewer said "if the creators had spent a little more time over it", but i do have to agree that this is one good game, and maybe the tv series should take notes from the giant battles in this game, then maybe the series would pick up ratings again.
Pros: Great gameplay, and good possibilities for mods
Cons: buggy, gets slow, need a fast net connection
Summary: The Dominion War is over. The three major powers of the Alpha Quadrant, once allied against a common foe, begin planning for the future. For now, an uncomfortable peace has settled in the Galaxy. This game is huge Star Trek: Armada is bigger than a big lot of big things stuck together, and that's just the training stages.
Summary: I bought Star Trek: Armada a few days after it shelved; my friends and I were sweating to get the plastic wrap off and install it. When we gave the game a few rounds the majority of us were not disappointed! in short,this game is bar none the most tactically involving RTS ever. Although opinions vary, I believe that battle tactics are more effective and executable than even the likes of Blizzard's work. This is what makes this game truly shine.
Summary: Star Trek Armada has got to be the best trek game that I have played, there have been some real lemons released with the star trek name on the cover, but this has got a great combination. There are a number of missions to be completed, you play the federation, Klingons, Romulans and Borg, but you have to complete the missions in order you cant just jump in as the Borg and assimilate everything.
