Star Trek Conquest Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Star Trek: Conquest is a game for strategy enthusiasts and Trekkies, and probably not suitable from an entertain standpoint for anyone who is not a part of one of these groups. If you are curious, rent it. If not, don't bother.
  • Pros: Excellent for Start Trek Strategy Fans, Fine use of Star Trek source material, Good replay ability
  • Cons: Poor learning curve without much help from the game itself, Ship controls are somewhat lacking, Not entertaining if you aren't a strategy or Trek fan.

Star Trek: Conquest

Thunderbolt Games
26 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Despite being around for more than four decades, Star Trek has always had an irrefutable geeky-ness about it. Perhaps the Klingon conventions are partly to blame, or maybe it’s just that Star Trek focuses largely on different sentient species and their politics (not cool) vs. Star Wars ’ spaceships, warriors and battles (cool). Star Trek: Conquest is the latest in a long line of videogames based on Gene Roddenberry’s famous franchise.

  • Excerpt: Only three things will survive the apocalypse: bacteria, Cher, and the "Star Trek" legacy. The latter has taken on a life of its own over the past few decades and in some respects, can even rival Lucas' famed "Star Wars" franchise (although one is firmly rooted in film while the other has its foundation in television).

12 December 2007
  • Conclusion: Great Roddenberry’s ghost, how things have changed: There was a time, not so long ago, when no publisher would have dared to take the kind of liberties from a license that have been taken with Star Trek: Conquest . If the Great Bird of the Galaxy hadn’t left orders to have himself cremated, he would be doing more RPMs in his grave than a high-performance Tipler Cylinder . And yet, there’s something fond in this oddball, flawed little game.
  • Pros: Beer-and-pretzels gameplay, Sim your battles out, or come in swinging, Simple but solid visuals, The Federation gloves are off
  • Cons: Not much depth, Chews and spits out Trek canon, No multiplayer, Mode-anemic

  • Excerpt: A barely-advertised, "budget" Star Trek board-game / arcade-action mash-up that skimps on gameplay modes, completely eschews multiplayer, summarily chucks Gene Roddenberry's Utopian notions of The Federation right out the air-lock, divides both series fans and gamers on principle -- and manages to be something like compelling, despite it all. Fascinating.

Star Trek Conquest Review

GamerNode
8 December 2007
  • Excerpt: This was a pretty hard game to review; not because it was necessarily difficult to play, but because for every good reaction that I felt about the game, there was an equal and opposite reaction as well. (Mr. Hewett, my old physics teacher, would be proud of me for that statement.) The scenario of Star Trek Conquest is basically “us against them.” The galaxy (in the Next Generation era) has gone to seed and all alliances and fuzzy feelings between the races are gone.
