game is alright, wish they would expand on this game with patch upgrades instead of expansions which cost more money....

Have you updated to 1.4?  Or any of the patches at all?  There's been quite a bit of content added in the various udpates since Supernova was released.

I also had an exciting moment the other day. My mother-in-law said she would visit her daughter (my house!) and the grandkids and would actually stay with us for the whole week. Then she called and said that she is planning on visiting her second daughter. Heard that poor husband of hers tried to kill himself as he was 'presented' with the news.

cpdeyoung is right, of course. This game, indeed, bring many exciting moments and I'd advise any self-respecting 4x strategy gamer to go and purchase the thing together with the expansion. It's worth it.

I do have the latest patch and it is ok. haven't played this game in months until just this past weekend but i still do not have the expansions, just cannot see it being worth the money.

To some extent, it takes time to discover all this stuff, and I have not put the time into it yet. But yes, so much better than the original release all around.

To each his own. Personally, I find Supernova improves the original game so much that I honestly can't imagine playing without it now (and I know that's the case for lots of other folks as well), but obviously everyone's mileage will vary.

Something to also consider is that you could probably pick up the expansion for pretty cheap on other sites. (Sorry Matrix, but your prices are more expensive!) I know GamersGate sells it for $9.95, for instance...and at that price, I really do feel you would find it to be worth the money. Just my two cents (no pun intended!).

Enjoying this game alot. It reminds me of Moo2 in some ways, is pretty easy to sink your teeth into (dont understand everything but concepts are comming fairly quickly.... I'm not always the sharpest tool in the shed). I like the "feel and pace of the game...it gives me a chance to view the landscape, think and execute without feeling hectic. Music is subjective but I like it. Im very happy with the game thus far although I have not experienced much with the real time battles..from what I have seen with the battles so far it is evedent that It will take some getting use to. I know with the Total War games I enjoyed the build up and strategic map more than the battles...might be the same with this game.

Ah, another convert.


Sounds like your experience with Armada so far has largely mirrored my own. I think that the game being relatively easy to learn how to play (but without sacrificing depth) is one of its greatest strengths.

Unfortunately, you may very well find the battles a little disappointing. It's probably the game's single biggest weakness, at least among the majority of players out there. It's good in concept, but doesn't work out so well in execution.
