    “Rally to me ALL who would FIGHT THE ARMADA!!!!”
    Loved that line, it never failed to stir my blood. Although I didn’t care as much for the main story missions, finding new bases and evolving your ship was great fun (Torch Saber and Shiva Cannon FTW!) A friend and I would test our survival skills making “radar runs” into deep space just to see how long we could stand against monsters twice our size.
    One thing I always wished that game had was a more dynamic world. Nothing over the top, just a feeling of ebb and flow in the great battle. It would have been so much better if the escort missions actually resulted in, say, new bases or the battles were over the survival of important locations.
    My friend and I tried Armada Online a few years ago but really couldn’t get into it. I think we missed the Dreamcast too much!

      Yeah, Armada Online totally didn’t feel the same, sadly. Armada was sooo much fun with friends too. I see what you’re saying about the dynamic world, but I think considering the restraints they had to work with they did a fantastic job.

    sounds kind of like transcendence which you should play if you have not

      Hi Pippy, and welcome! I have toyed around with Transcendence, and I enjoyed it. :) If I recall, Armada is quite a bit more frantic though. :)

  3. i’ve had this game for a long time. never beat it tho. also, in case you haven’t tried it, a good game for DC is Starlancer. it’s actually not too bad on console.

      I never got Starlancer for the DC because I have it for the PC, but I heard it was a good port.
