Is Armada 2526 any good?
Meh.
I like Distant Worlds a whole lot better, but it is real time. I've heard Star Ruler has gotten better with patches.

Sad that a game with no redeemable qualities sells so well, and so many awesome games never break even.

Yeah, the demo is single player only. What I mean is that in the full game, the skirmishes that in the demo are single player only are really designed for co-op.

Does this expansion offer anything new for singleplayer gamers?

You can do the skirmishes as a single player, but they are intended as co-op. Download the demo and see if you like it; what it offers is what SP will be.

Most people don't even know what draconian means.

It's one of the neutral races in Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic, duh!
UbiSoft's DRM will turn you into a neutral race! Run!

Hey, your money!

I just felt it didn't add enough stuff: the campaign is linear and the same each time.

which would seem to fall in the 5/8 range, or a "Buy it if you REALLY like the genre).

I debated the score for longer than I should. You can certainly argue that it could/should have gotten a 5, but when I compared it to some recent games I did that got a 5, I enjoyed it less, so I scored it less. Don't let the score matter too much: just read the review and decide for yourself, as you did. Too many people put too much emphasis on scores these days, gamers and publishers alike. I just hope I put enough detail in the review so that people can say "what the hell...by what you said it should have gotten a 5 or 6!" and reach their own conclusions based on content, balance, and personal value.

My biggest decisions are usually between a 6 and a 7, since the latter gets you put on the 8/8 games page.

Don't know if you'll see this since the news is a bit old, but:

Ubisoft = no.
Sad face.

I'm surprised you haven't received offers of employment yet from some of the industry leaders

Not industry leaders, but every once in a while I get contacted by a smaller site asking if I want to work with them. Honestly, getting the games for free and setting my own schedule is worth not getting paid. I like playing new games and I like writing, so it's a win-win, though of course it'd be even better if I made money off of it

The first two or three levels of the campaign serve as a tutorial in the full version. What's in the demo?

Re: DLC
Publishers make DLC because people buy it. Stop buying it. It used to be free until the pubs realized people would pay freakin' $15 for four maps.

Considering the reviews of both, I'm very sad to see Breach outselling Monday Night Combat.

I like Breach more than Monday Night Combat.
