Critic Reviews for Battlefleet Gothic: Armada
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.
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: 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.

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.
