Summary: My mom got me this game for Easter and I love it. The first thing I did was do a skirmish to get a hold of the combat. I loved it. I thought that the battle mechanics were cool (note, this was my first star trek game). Next I played the campaign and noticed, this looks like star wars empire at war, where you have to manage not just a certain area, but the entire space. I have had lots of fun playing this game and unlocking different aliens to play as.
Summary: My son, (and I) are huge STNG fans. This was the closest we could find for Wii. He's figured out how to play & enjoys it. I think it's a mix of a couple of the Star Trek shows, but I'm not sure. I sure wish there were more Wii games out there for Star Trek!
Summary: So that pretty much makes me biased on anything to do with star trek. It is a strategy game so it your looking for graphics and tons of action you will be disappointed but you should be looking for that if you have a wii (not known for that). More like a thinking game i wished it had more of the original ships in it looked more like a new generation thing. After you have conquered it a couple times it does get boring but that pretty much all a games.
Summary: graphics: circa win95 gameplay: To start you've got clunky controlls, the screen is too close to manage the battle, and racial combat ability is rather lopsided (klingon fleet tore thru a fully upgraded/defended romulan starbase & defencive fleet without losing a single ship) story: no real story just pointless back and forth fighting sound: standard canned ST sounds and music
Summary: This is not the greatest game, but it is the only Star Trek game for the Wii available. It has moderate gameplay and would be better suited for one of the older systems. The graphics remind me of SNES.
Summary: This is a pretty bare bones game, but even so it manages to be pretty fun. It's a conquest game, where you control one of six Star Trek races and attempt to conquer the galaxy. It doesn't resemble the Star Trek franchise story at all as all of the races compete against each other and don't form alliances.
Summary: Pros: --- The auto battle system means that you don't have to manually control your ships --- It is fun to go around blowing your enemy's stuff up --- The graphics look good for the Wii --- The game is easy enough to pick up and play Cons: --- Each faction only has 3 kinds of ships, and with only 6 factions there isn't a lot of variety --- Whenever you select something, it causes the screen to glow around what you have selected, and this can cause eye strain when you are...
Summary: The game's main attraction as a turn based strategy game is the simplicity; there are no annoying details that you have to waste your time on. Combat caters to many different styles, so once you find something that works, you can generally dominate the map. I only wish that the AI was more intelligent and aggressive, and that the map could be randomly generated, instead of using one map only. Otherwise, it is a well made game.
Summary: I am a 40 yo man and remember playing pong on the atari system, so keep that in mind. I first played this game and got my a** kicked so many times I stopped playing and let it collect dust for 6 months. About 3-weeks ago I picked it up again and tried it out , now I love it and I'll tell you why- the reason I couldn't win was because I didn't know that when you are in arcade mode if you press the up + button all your ship will follow your lead and shoot the same target.
