Armada you follow the story line that sets itself against the
backdrop of the late war against the spike headed dominion,
aliens who wouldn't find it hard getting jobs as 'cheese pokers'
in a cheese factory. Despite this the actual game has very little
to do with them, instead it's direct at the pending invasion
by the Borg - those guys that look like traffic lights set to
green at night, with a hint of red.
get to play as one of four races in the sequence of Federation,
Klingon, Romulan and finally Borg - one after the other. Each
race throws around 5 missions at you and provides for an unheard
of amount of originality and perspective on the whole storyline
and universe. So not only do you get to see what it's like to
send the enterprise into battle you also get to see what it's
like to assimilate it.
a BORG, you know you want to!
The first thing we look at in any game is the controls, Armada
being a rich C&C clone obviously takes full advantage of modern
Mouse control. You can use a Joystick or a pad, but as ever
with C&C clones, you simply won't get the fast paced control
reactions you require in order to truly master the game on anything
other than a Mouse.
