Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, Tindalus Interactive and Games Workshop, PC, £29.99, Website
Set in Games Workshop's hugely popular Warhammer 40k universe, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is a new Real Time Strategy game based on 1999's tabletop game of the same name.
The game features a single-player campaign, pitting the Imperium against Abaddon the Despoiler and acts as an excellent tutorial to the game. The player controls a variety of ships with various weapons and abilities and requires tactical skill to outwit and outmatch the enemy in a variety of different scenarios.
There's also an option to run custom matches or quick solo skirmishes, good for when you just want a quick fix.
The unique feel of the Warhammer 40k world is really captured and the ability to customise your fleet as you advance really give you the feeling of a tabletop wargame. With the original board game no longer (currently) available, this makes an excellent alternative.
