Summary: This doesn't deserve the Star Trek name. The real tragedy is that with a bit more playtesting and polish this could have been a good game. However, someone thought that frustrating, repetitive gameplay might be fun. On the good side, the game looks nice for a 5-year-old PS2 game. The ship-to-ship battles are actually fun in an arcadey kind of way, There are a good number of missions (20), and the skirmish mode is okay for a little while.
Summary: If you could take all the excitment of controlling a powerful starship on the edge of human knowledge and put it into a video game... it would be the oposite of this. I gave up on this game after the second level of "fly the ship to the destination points in time"... LAME. Maybe I'm missing something, but I did not enjoy this game.
Summary: Star Trek Encounters game was fun to play since it also had two-player capability. I did not like the fact I could not save at key points but it did let you go back if you lost. OK not the best but more fun in two-player mode.
Summary: I played this game for a few hours and the awkward controls sent me to bed that night with a numb arm and outrageous pain in my shoulder. I thought maybe it was something else, and tried again.... This game looks nice, but is actually a Klingon Pain Stick cleverly disguised as a video game. I had no choice but to stop playing and throw it away. It was either that or end up in doctor's office.
Summary: This game is cheap so you can't expect anything too flashy. The ship you control is very small and controls are not intuitive. Can be fun in skirmish mode but if you do the missions its a bit of a chore. There is a stupid section at the start where you fly through rings which is almost impossible. Overall not recommended.
Summary: Was looking for another game and this was suggested. Looked alright. Was fun for a week but too easy, not much fighting, and you do the same thing over and over in each mission. Didn't do much multiplayer.
Summary: To rate Star Trek Encounters is real simple;I paided $15 for it,you get what you pay for.Its ok for a quick game of shoot'em up,but like the reviews for its big brother(Star Trek Legacy),developer should spent more time instead of try to put it out for the holidays.Hoping for a sequel,and maybe hopefully they'll do it GTA style(open space,do what you want to do),and just focus on one era(TOS,TNG,DS9,VOY,and ENT).
