I was just wondering which one people like better?
I liked the first one better. The second wasn't bad but it felt like it's additions pulled away from the game. IIRC.
I prefer the second one but I think that's because it's the first one I played.
The Star Trek vs Star Wars mod worked better in the second one though IMO.
Definately A1. It had by far the better storyline, and much more balanced ships. In A2, everything but the battleships so often seemed to be made of paper, which in my opinion made them feel too expendable. On the upside, I did like A2's resource and trade system, and its visuals were a definate improvement.
^Yeah, A1's story line was better.
I think the first was my favorite. The huge story was epic, especially more so at the last stretch. Not to mention they had Stewart, Hertzler, Dorn, Crosby reprise their roles respectively, though I thought it was awesome that Alice Krige actually voiced the Queen in Armada II.
A2 seemed overly-complicated to me compared to A1.
^That's what I was trying to get at earlier.
I like A2 more but only because I can play the Cardassian or Species 8472 in Instant Action. I don't remember storylines any more.
Hmm, maybe I should refresh them
I prefer Armada 1. I still go back and play it every couple of years. Haven't played A2 since the first time.
I just started playing A1 again. Is this game cannon, with the actors reprising their roles and all?
In Trek, nothing is canon except for tv episodes and movies, with Voyager's "Threshold" usually being regarded as the black sheep of the family. As Armada is set in 2376, the year after DS9 ended, there are no inconsistencies with canon. Only Nemesis and the main-universe events of the first Abrams movie are set beyond that and they do not contradict Armada as far as I know.
That being said, most of the other non-canon works (games, novels, etc.) are likely incompatible. The only exception would likely be Away Team, as the Incursion appeared in A2 and it was produced by the same company as Armada.
I still remember the hype and watching the movie like trailers for Armada 1, so that'll always be for me, the best. The experience playing it was fun, and it was the first time I ever played as a Borg ship, which was great. Alas, the movie trailer made it look far better than it was.i cheated on both games for infinite dilithium, which I found increased the fun levels significantly.
I liked the mods I downloaded for Armada2 that allowed the addition of Tholians, Ferengi, Dominion, Breen
I have to say, I played part one, the story was great but the instant action grew tiresome, then I played part two, the story was (well, currently is) lacking but the instant action was more fun. Armada 2 has longevity IMO.
I preferred the first one, although the second did have the Galaxy class in it.
I liked the first Armada game better. Man I miss playing Armada!
After playing them both (and growing tired of both after awhile), Armada I was the better of the two, story-wise, but Armada II had better instant action.
