Product Description

From the Manufacturer

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 focuses on providing a game that can be finished in a reasonable time, and emphasizes battle and strategy over economic micro-management.

The game consists of two sections. The Star Map is where you run your empire: manage your colonies, deploy your fleets, do research, and conduct diplomacy. It uses a turn based system, so you can take as long as you wish to plan your actions. However, once battle is joined, you switch to the battle module and fight it out in a real-time 3D system that brings to life the beauty and visceral carnage of space combat.

  • Turn based star map for moving fleets, managing colonies, performing research, and conducting diplomacy.
  • Customizable map size and number of players, allowing you to construct tight 2 player confrontations, or huge galaxies with 50 or more players, and thousands of stars. Map designer included.
  • Twelve animated alien races to play and battle against / Full featured diplomacy system, with a highly intelligent AI and options to ask favors, make demands, and issue ultimatums.
  • More than 100 technology items to research, including advances in ship construction, ground defenses, biological warfare, and psychic powers / 3D Real-time battle system for fighting huge battles with 100 or more ships per side.
  • Ground combat is integrated into the combat system, allowing marines to be landed to battle ground defenses while ship combat rages overhead / More than a hundred beautifully crafted ship models, including mighty dreadnaughts, long range missile cruisers, fighters, carriers, and asteroids for bombarding planets.

    I bought this as a hard copy back when Matrix Games was selling it in 2010. This is an interesting space 4X game. Basically, there are not many colony spots, so you have to expand and do what you can with the colonies you have. Research is pretty neat. First, you have to construct Buildings on your colonies. Then, with the correct research centers you will automatically generate research points in a given area. There are different areas to research, so having enough centers will eventually research all areas. There are, of course, different buildings to construct, not just research. Space ports are also important, as are happiness structures (for many, but not all, races, as some races do not care about happiness!).

    Although strategy is turn based, the combat system is not, it is real time. You will see your fleet from overhead and send the ships to attack certain enemy units. Having a good combined arms set of ships (battleships, missile cruisers, destroyers, carriers, etc) will ensure victory. Usually, you will have one large fleet that roams around attacking the enemy. By the way, there is no ship design, just building.

    There are different races. This is where 2526 is kind of neat. Each race receives victory points for different reasons. Some, population size is important. Others, population happiness or event technology is important. In any even, just conquering is not enough - you have to play your race!

    The graphics are good, but the music is outstanding! I love the music!

    Armada 2526 is not a long game, but it is fun!

    This is a great game. Get the Supernova expansion. It adds a lot to the game. Or get the Gold edition that includes the Supernova expansion. Fun 4X title that is quick to learn. Genuinely challenging. I think it has the best AI of any 4X game I've played.

    Good strategy game with enough detail to get lost in. Lost in a good way that is. I started playing and noticed I was hungry three hours later. At first I was disappointed because of the limited game play scenarios. Then I discovered that by using the 12 race option the scenarios were almost endless. Simply select the number of races desired for play. 12 is the most but three works just as well. Choose the size of the galaxy or just about any other variable that you want. There is action too in the battle scenes. It isn't first person shooter battle but the player has a lot more control than in any other turn based space game I've played other than Master of Orion, which doesn't work on Win7 or Win8.

    I spent way too much time with this game and loved every minute of it. Conquering the galaxy with Armada 2526 is great.

    This is a great turn based space game. It gets progressively more difficult the further you get into it. This game is similar to other games in this genre, but it is still quite unique.
