Their was a strategy in Armada ? ^_^
Best game I ever had was with a friend over splitscreen...first we have collected as many resources as possible...then came the big battle...nearly two hours of constand fighting.
Actually, I only played Armada for the WC strategy element. I found split screen dogfighting was impossible since at least one person had to use the keyboard. In reality it had to be both, since the person using the joystick would win no contest. Not only was using the keyboard frustrating, if I recall it was a logistical nightmare to share a keyboard in such a way. We ended up putting combat on auto just playing it as a turn-based strategy game.
Guessing people that enjoyed split screen combat were able to play using two joysticks on their system or somehow managed to become adept with the keyboard?
