I understand you cannot design your own ships that is fine

Is combat RTS in this game or turn based, do you have control over ships or is it just a video of what happened in the battle?

Trying to decide if I want to get this game or not

Also I have Galactice Civilizations II which game is better in your mind? From what I have played I have not liked a single aspect of GalCiv. I hate the planet management interface, I dont like the ship design and I cant stand the combat

Also can you invade planets in this game with troops? Thanks

Combat is RTS, and you do have some control over your ships.
This game is way better than GCII, there's really no comparison IMO. Supernova really made Armada shine.
And yes, there are troops and you can invade systems. Supernova added some troop types too.

Didn't enjoy GalCiv 2 much either (and i tried)...Armada 2526 with Supernova is just great.

Unlike the others, I actually really enjoyed GalCiv2. That being said, however, Armada 2526 is vastly superior, especially with the Supernova expansion (but even without it, it's still a better game).
