Summary: This is a fun little game for PSP with decent graphics and well thought out controls. I've been pretty entertained by it the whole time I've had it rented and now I'm planning on purchasing it. There are two full campaign modes one as the Federation and the other as the Klingon Empire and while both campaigns end kind of abruptly, respectively the skirmish mode offers a lot of fun instant action allowing you to set up your own opposition and choose any ship available in...
Summary: This may be a biased review as i love pretty much anything star trek. Its a good trek game with simple gameplay mechanics. I think if this game were not portable it would probably not work as well for me. I like that i can pick it up and play for 15 mins here and there doing simple escort, seek and destroy type missions. There is ship advancement and you can upgrade your crew which adds a little rpg element.
Summary: I swear this is easily one of the worst games I've ever played and the worst PSP game I have played so far. Granted every Star Trek game I've ever played have been very poor games. So I can't say I was all that surprised. Why can't anyone make a decent Star Trek game? Do not buy this game unless you are a hopeless Star Trek fanboy/girl who lives in their parents basement and can't buy a date. Yes, the game really is that bad.
Summary: Ok, so it's not as deep or as polished I'd like. But you can't compare this game to X-Wing or Tie Fighter (Oh how I miss those.) You have to compare this game to every other Star Trek game out there. In which case it comes out (sadly) near the top. The Good: It is fun. Once you get used to the controls and the emergency power system you realize that there is some strategy after all. The crew upgrades were a cool idea.
Summary: This game is pretty good.. I like it WAY better than "Encounters" for the PS2...THAT game had TRUE clunky controls... It IS sort of a hybrid between Starfleet command and Starfleet/Klingon Academy... Most of the complaints seem to be complaining about things that could ONLY be fixed if the game was on a computer, not a HANDHELD.... I like it alot... missions are challenging and the cheats for unlockables come in REAL handy!!
Summary: ... same old mistakes. It's fun! If you like Star Trek, add a star here or there. But they get the same thing wrong that all the others do, these are supposed to be BIG Star Ships. You can't "Dog Fight" in a ship like this, they should be huge, lumbering ships that turn slowly... SFC is the closest thing to getting it right so far.
