Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is the new real-time strategy game adapted from Games Workshop’s famous tabletop game that portrays the epic space battles of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
A nearly perfect RTS in a Warhammer 40k universe, universe that the developers absolutely understand. If you’re an RTS fan, you must try this game.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 is grand in scale and scope, a testament to everything that's possible in the grimdark Warhammer 40K universe. Although a few issues still exist, it's still a stellar offering and one that Tindalos can continue to expand.
Involved, spectacular, space battles packaged into satisfying campaigns, and great fan service too.
While Armada isn’t big on scale, it is big on fun. It is one of the rare good entries of Games Workshop’s liberally licensed universe, and as such, it is a must-try for any fan of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
This is not a game for everyone. It requires good performance both in the management of resources and in the handling of weapons. They are two extremes of the game that must be mastered equally to advance. If you don't like either of those two game modes, this isn't a title for you. If you do and want a deep and lasting challenge, you'll enjoy this game a lot.
The tactical space battles are great, but deserve more variety as well as a better campaign design.
It’s a solid but not exceptional middle-of-the-road game with some UI hang-ups but a wide variety of factions and a solid amount of the old 40K charm.
