    Many great games have been built on the concept of expanding your space empire through diplomacy, trade and war. Armada 2526 is not one of them. [Nov 2010, p.83]

    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 elementsAt 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. Very limited, in many ways frustrating even, and specially nothing like the Trailer, that was the biggest surprise for me. I was very disappointed. If you intend on playing all your battles with Auto-Resolve it can be fun for its other aspects. I hope they release a Combat mechanics Overhaul and make this game what it was supposed to be. Full Review »

    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 asIt'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 galatic civilization series because it lacks replayability. The real time space battles means that A.I is pretty bad and i found myself squinting a lot in an attempt to make out ships. Full Review »
