Star Trek : Shattered Universe
22 May 2004
Excerpt: Star Trek: Shattered Universe puts you into a mirrored universe of the Star Trek universe inspired off of a classic Star Trek episode. While I'm not a big Star Trek fan, I'm sure many Trek fans will like the idea of a game based off a classic episode. It's too bad that this game leaves a lot to be desired, however. I guess Star Trek: Shattered Universe's biggest fault is the lack of depth. Lets go through the game in whole and how it performs in different areas.
Excerpt: And that basically sums up my feelings about Star Trek: Shattered Universe . Regardless of the collective media impressions (which include two reports from recent TNL colleagues), I was ultimately left stunned. There's no simple way to put it - this game let me down. I'd sooner look for a feature to flirt with Uhura than spend another second with this ( wink , wink ).
Excerpt: I can see where someone might care for it, or develop a sort of jaded affection for it, the same way that people sometimes like movies because they're bad. I can also see why people who enjoy the original "Star Trek" series might also like Star Trek: Shattered Universe , as it's voiced by Walter Koenig and George Takei, and is set within not only the "mirror universe" of the classic episode, but chronicles an adventure of Sulu's as the captain of the Excelsior .
Conclusion: Overall Shattered Union is a great strategy game let down technically by the graphics engine and forgettable sound. Definitely one for strategy nuts (are there any who own Xboxes?) but not a game I’d recommend to people that want a quick blast.
Pros: Turn-based strategy on a strategy starved console, Good strategic gameplay
Cons: Graphics and sound take a back seat, Not for the pick-up-and-play type
