A somewhat entertaining -somewhat frustrating -time-killer
8 July 2004
Summary: Not nearly as bad as some reviewers would have you believe. I'm a casual gamer with a wife and a job, so I'm always looking for titles that promise more fun than obsession. As a Trek fan, I thought this might be one of those titles, and by and large it was.
Summary: I should have waited for reviews from people who've actually PLAYED the game to show up before I spent money on it. I was hoping for something like Interplay's "Starfleet Command" series, which was only okay to begin with.
Summary: At first I was a little apprehensive of this game. As far as I was aware fighter-style combat is not something that there is a lot of in Star Trek. However, after giving this game a fair hearing I was pleasantly surprised.
Summary: This game look promising but it had some fatal flaws. There were no training level. The control is too complicated to figure out. The action sequences get very repetitive after awhile. This game resemble the first target shooting game of Interplay's Starfleet Academy - Starfleet Command.
Summary: SPOILERS I nearly peed my pants when I saw this game sitting on the shelf in the store. I couldn't believe it: A Star Trek flyer! I've been a fan of the Colony Wars games pretty much since they came out, and I was surprised at how similar the engine was in this game.
Summary: It's rare I find a game which makes me run screaming from the room. Shattered Universe is one of those. My quick thoughts: The good: decent voice acting from the actors who made Sulu and Chevokv famous; set in the Star Trek universe.
Summary: Finally I thought they would make a Star Trek game good. But nooooooo, they have to make it one of the hardest games I've played in a while. First of all let me say that the one star is for the graphics. They did a great job bringing the ships to life but thats where the fun stops.
Summary: I bought this game thinking it was a capital ship type combat game. Instead it is a shuttle combat game. The missions are extremely tedious and HARD even on easy. I got really frustrated with the difficulty of the game and the repetion.
