Star Trek: Encounters

Playstation Illustrated
18 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Star Trek: Encounters is one of the biggest undertakings a Star Trek title has attempted so far. Spanning all five series, this ship-to-ship combat game is just what the Trekkie-gamer is looking for. Graphically, Encounters is dead on, at least as far as the ship and station models are concerned. All of the Enterprises featured in the series from the NX-01 all the way to the NCC-1701-E come through in spectacular detail and would make any Trekkie cry.

  • Conclusion: I said it in the review and I'll say it again here: this is a Star Trek game in name only, and it's a crying shame. If only a little more attention to the history of the universe had been applied it wouldn't feel like such a wasted license.

Star Trek: Encounters

Empire Online
20 May 2007
  • Summary: Star Trek may be 40 this year, but the classic sci-fi franchise has contributed little to the world of video games, having inspired only a handful of half-cocked space adventures that sullied the series’ good name. And things don’t get any better with Encounters. Spanning all Star Trek periods - from Enterprise to Voyager, via the original 1960s series - Encounters spectacularly fails to capture the spirit of the TV show, ditching the human drama, alien interaction and...

  • Excerpt: It’s been awhile since I last criticized a Star Trek game, hasn’t it. Not since I reviewed the not so sterling “Star Trek : Shattered Universe” (starring George Takei as Captain Sulu and Walter Koenig as Captain Chekov) have I felt so bummed out by reviewing a Star Trek game. It seems the only thing the Star Trek franchise is good for these days is space shooters and DOOM like first person shooters (with only the occasional “rare”game to come along to break the monotony...

  • Summary: Is Star Trek – Encounters dan alleen leuk voor de fans? Ik denk het wel. De game is uitgebracht om het veertigjarige jubileum van de serie te vieren en als je de tv-series kent, dan kan het misschien best leuk zijn om een aantal bekende missies te spelen. Toch zal deze game voor de 'gewone gamer' geen bijzondere ervaring zijn. De besturing loopt niet echt soepeltjes en ook de camera werkt niet altijd geheel naar wens.

Star Trek : Encounters

JeuxVideo.fr
25 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Une licence très connue (Star Trek), un éditeur prestigieux (Bethesda), la possibilité de participer à des aventures qui prennent place dans la série originale mais aussi dans ses dérivés, voilà qui est a priori très alléchant et qui promet de belles parties aux commandes du vaisseau culte Enterprise. Hélas, Encounters s'est avéré vraiment trop mauvais pour intéresser ne serait-ce que les inconditionnels du show télévisé.

  • Excerpt: Der Weltraum ... unendliche Langeweile! Wenn es nach diesem Lizenzspiel geht, ist das Leben auf der Enterprise alles andere als aufregend.
  • Pros: Gute Grafik mit den Original-Raumschiffen der Serie, Viel Action, Spaßige Mehrspieler-Action
  • Cons: Grausige und unnötih komplizierte Steuerung, Runden nicht ausbalanciert, Lahmes Missionsdesign, Keine echte Star-Trek-Story

  • Summary: Nach den Sternen gegriffen und doch nur ein paar müde Funzeln vorgefunden: „Star Trek: Encounters“ hat definitiv Fan-Wert, ist aber für den Normalverbraucher eher eine Qual. So gerne man auch andere Raumschiffe bombardiert, man muss diese erst mal erreichen und treffen können. Die Steuerung ist katastrophal und nur mit sehr viel Übung zu ertragen. Aus all den Lizenzen und Ideen hätte man tatsächlich mehr machen können.
  • Pros: Original-Lizenz, Original-Musik, Shattner als Sprecher
  • Cons: Miese Steuerung, Lasche Grafik, Missionsbasiert und keine Story, Schlecht spielbar wegen zu kleiner Gegner
