Some missions goals are somewhat random but in the missions where it's quite straightforward what to do you will absolutely smash an opponent if you utilize good tactics.

Tactics are incredibly important, as are strategic decisions.

Get an Emperor class ship. Make it super tanky and keep your other ships relatively close to it so you can use it to support your fleet with ships from your launch bays and your large amount of defense turrets.

Can you get away with just rushing the enemy in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada?

Only if you're playing Orks

Yes, if the mission goal allows for it it's very smart to actually rush. Like when you need to take down 4/6 transports but fighting the fleet attached to it to protect it would take so much time they would already be out of reach.

How good are the graphics in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada?

Oh it's a lovely game, but so hard! Graphically it's got the perfect 40K touch, and the weapons effects are pretty too. If you're up on your 40k lore, the ships look like you'd expect them to.

Visuals are simple, but very well done. Sadly most of the time you'll be zoomed out so you can't see all that loving detail on your ship.

Decent. Mostly because it uses FXAA, and on high the textures are extremely blurry so you have to keep it on low to have good textures, but then you're stuck with jaggies. Explosion effects etc. on the other hand are exquisite.

Great atmosphere. Amazing cutscenes and voice acting. It just hits the nail on the head.

Sadly, it has gone done a lot lately due to the inability of the devs to hotfix problems with the balancing. On top of that their communication with the community isn't stellar either and deadlines seem to be seen as a vague estimate.

Would you buy at full price or wait for a Battlefleet Gothic: Armada sale?

I bought it at full price. It has a lot of replayability due to multiplayer, multiple different fleets, a long campaign, and several different choices in the campaign. It's campaign itself is longer than a lot of AAA games in total. So it's a relatively good way to spend money.

Full price, it's only $40

I should probably clarify. I like to play a couple matches and then switch to a different game after a while.
