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.

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.

Cons: Graphics and sound take a back seat, Not for the pick-up-and-play type
