Critic Reviews for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

A tubthumping tribute to the 40K universe, with perfectly grim design. Multiplayer definitely needs work on its balance though.

7.1 / 10.0

There are a lot of good ideas in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, and it certainly looks like a great tactical space combat game. But it struggles to build that into a coherent whole, making it tough to recommend unless you’re willing to utterly dedicate yourself to fully comprehending the inaccessible systems of its combat.

Despite some minor frustrations Battlefleet: Gothic Armada is a fun RTS that isn’t too unwelcoming to people new to the genre.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada lacks the management depth found in games like Stellaris and Sins of a Solar Empire. It instead offers brutal, fast-paced, ship-to-ship combat in stunning detail. I loved ramming and watching ships deliver brutal salvos of canon fire. This one is for action-hungry RTS fans with a love of the Warhammer 40k aesthetic.

Battlefleet Gothic is a mixed bag. The slow pace hinders a game that should be all about letting you jump in to epic space battles but as you develop, leveling up ships and customising your fleet to what you want, it does prove itself to be a strong contender.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada lets the player dispose of tens of thousands people at a time in battle, and the micro-management is no less complex. It appears as an excellent digital transposition of the original boardgame, and it also represents a great first test for the newborn development studio � Tindalos Interactive.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is a beautiful game that’s flawed but brilliant. Occasionally obtuse but always entertaining, it’s a wonderfully unique way to experience the Warhammer 40k universe.

Slight frustrations aside, I’ve really enjoyed Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. It’s a fantastic micromanagement heavy “naval” skirmish game that drips with the Warhammer 40k flavor. It’s always great to see a genuinely good Warhammer game, particularly a 40k one, that’s not something of a throwaway these days.
