"Armada 2526 was the best space 4X gaming experience I had since Master of Orion 2 and Galactic Civilizations 2 at the time, and that is saying a lot."

Conquer the Galaxy In This ‘4x’ Strategy Game.

Lead one of 18 different alien races to become a mighty pan-galactic empire. Manage your colonies, deploy your fleets and conduct research. Plot your strategy and turn your planets into mighty bastions. Explore new star systems, where you may encounter tachyon storms, psychic plants, primitives or find abandoned alien technology. Diplomacy is of utter importance in being successful. Make pacts and alliances, make threats or ask for favours - and when the time is right, replace diplomacy by space combat and fight it out in real-time 3D.

The trade system lets you trade valuable commodities between both your own and alien worlds. Alien relics, rare minerals, tourists, or even natural anti-matter, your freighters will carry them all. Although the game is complex, and the possible strategies endless, powerful help and advisor features, help you get up to speed quickly. Unlike many games in this genre, Armada 2526 Gold Edition focuses on providing a game that can be finished in a reasonable time, and emphasizes battle and strategy over economic micro-management. All with one purpose: to emerge victorious and conquer the galaxy with your armada.

I really wish I could recommend this game. Most of the reviews I've read aren't even aware that this is an unpdate of a game so old is pre-dates MOO and MOO2. So to compare this with the MOO games isn't really fair, since it's just as likely MOO took ideas from the old Armada 2525.

There are some great features to the game. In particular, the events notifications after each turn allows itself to be used as a sort of checklist when resolving issues, in a way that not even the new Civ games do. However, there are several tedious features. Moving population around planets is necessary, and it just takes a little too long to issue each transport command. The issues are minor, such as having to move the mouse far across the screen, instead of having common commands set right next to each other. So it isn't awful, just a little tiring to me after some hours of play.

Alien races keep spamming me with requests and deal offers, and there is no way to stop them. Unfortunately, most of the offers just aren't that important. I finally declared war on one race to stop their nagging, which reduced communications to a series of offers for peace. The aliens will also sometimes park on your planets, doing no harm, but causing the game to prompt you to declare war every single turn, which also gets tedious.

This is basically a good, relatively simple sci fi 4x game that probably has some good strategy. But the polish isn't there, for me. The pace of play tends to tire me rather than energize me. So I recommend avoiding it, although it might be enjoyable if you are really interested in 4x sci fi games, of which there are not enough.

I have only played the Gold edition. Based on the new features list, I would avoid the regular edition and only buy the gold, if you do buy it. It adds quite a lot.

Update: Okay, I changed my mind. But with some caveats. The game is funny, quirky, and easy to mod. If you like exploring a game to see what makes it tick, and if you don't take it too seriously, this might be a good buy. The problems I mentioned lessen as the game progresses, and there are many ways to win. Myself, I have made small changes to the random planet generation to reduce the number of useless planets. It appears to have been made by one person, which I find quite admirable. It isn't really polished, but it has a good heart.

It is enjoyable but not a great replacement for Games like Masters Of Orion or Galactic Civilizations. Those are much better games than this.

Its a wonderful strategy game! Witha plethora of starships to choose from Armada2526 GE allows for limitless in battle strategies. While at the same time allowing for dictator like control over all that goes on in your empire. If for one reason or another micromanaging becomes a pain, several features allow you to hand different aspects of control to the AI. Alothough there are only 18 different alien races, there are several other factions with differnt perks than the main branch of that race. The map designer enpowers you to create just about any galaxy you heart desires and choose the riches at each planet. The only down falls to this game may be that the game can become a little monotonous after 200 turns if you don't set new goals for your-self and time between turns can be long if you are playing with a lot of races. Above all the game provides a wide variety of stratagies to conqur the galaxy.

I bought this game when it was for sale, so I spent around five bucks, and at first I hated it. I believed it to be an absolute bore.

However with some time and imagination, I loved it and found myself playing it quite frequently.

I have owned this game for over two years and i bought two seperate editions for each computer when (if i remember correctly) i bought the basic Armada 2526 and the expansion Supernova at $20 a pop. Twice, once for each computer. So now i have bought it on Steam and i have laid out $100.

Now i can play it on either computer without porting problems.

The game is by far more interesting to me as my years of playing it go on.

Yes, it needs some creative tinkering to make it an even better game in forms of management. I would love to be able to find just the planets that have reserch staions that have become obsolete so i can both remove them and replace them without going through hundreds of planets,

But if you like broad expansive strategy as well as figuring out how to make an economy work I think you will like this "game of chess with few limits."

it is fun, if your into that kinda thing fun, my only real problem was the ai loading inbetween turns can take up to 20mins on the biggest galaxy setting with 9 races, maybe its my computer, idk. ill always come back for more but its really annoying when i got a thought out plan on what to do on my next turn only to forget what i was going to do due to the fact the turns take forever with pop up messages with deals that are of no use to me anyhow, which then causes me to get annoyed and annihalate a single race due to the fact the game designers made them that way i would say a must play if you loved gal civ but hated the fleet restrictions. great setup but you can win with missle cruisers, fleet carriers and roid rollers. all the other ships have their uses but if a massive wave of missles wipe everything they have and fighters go into mop it up becomes repetitive, ill be back for more but the game designers might want to considers some changes next time.

This is a fun game but it does take a little strategy to start off. once you get going though it becomes an interesting challenge that will make you waste hours of free time without you realizing.

It is an amazing strategy game were you take command of a species to lead them to galactic victory. It has a very well designed economic system, a clean unhappiness system, and an amazing diplomacy system, even with AI. There is, however, one MAJOR flaw. The game has a bug where : If you attack an enemy colony, and do not choose to auto calculate the battle, the screen goes to the desktop exept for a GUI overlay. Then, after the battle is over, and the screen will remain black with a GUI overlay. Any text or windows that appear on the black screen will stay there even after closing them. Furthermore, saving the game and rebooting it does not help. Unless you plan on victory without fighting, you simply cannot win.

Yet another half-complete, shallow, limited "4x" clone. Gameplay clunky and simplistic. No challenge or interest.

Regret this purchase, despite the sale.

Absolutely terrible game. The gameplay is boring and overly complex with the game itself not having any context. If I could go back in time and never buy game I would in a heartbeat.

I got suckered into this game cause I'm a huge strategy game lover. I invested 7 hours into this horrible game just trying to get the graphics to look correctly couldn't see or read half the stuff. Game is probably really good it was fun for a bit but the graphics are all fuzzy. Seems like a really a fun game with a lot of potential but maybe its my computer idk.
