Battlefleet Gothic: Armada
Rebus Forever here with another One Minute-ish (very ish) review for a strategy game, with spaceships, set in the 40k universe.
As a bit of a goth who likes spaceships, strategy and Games Workshop, I felt ethically and morally compelled to review Battlefleet Gothic, my massive throbbing bias aside, here goes.
Do you like Gothic cathedrals but wish they were better at flying?

You know how if you’re on a ship for a few days, you can still feel the rocking of the ocean when you lie in your bed? Ironically, that’s how it feels to play Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. The controls are so fluid for naval combat that you can feel the ship rotations in your walk and the rumble of engines in your sleep. For that, the game gets a massive recommendation. 40k games often work like that. They have this wonderful quality where the scene setting is always perfect. The voices are on point, the UI is appropriately gothic, and the music makes you feel like you’re charging into the final battle of the 13th Black Crusade.
