Summary: What can I say as a part time/non-hard core gamer about STSU? Well, it's sort of dull and kind of easy. There aren't a really great variety of ships to use at any given time. Having the authentic voices of original series cast members helps and the graphics for PS2 and X-Box are pretty decent. Personally, it gives me some satisfaction as a 29 year Trekkie (since I was 4..that dates me...
Conclusion: Star Trek: Armada and Armada II are actually halfway decent RTS games. They play just like any other space RTS and you also get to control Romulans, Klingons and the Borg (with Picard as Locutus) at one point. They get a bit repetetive at points but that’s nothing new in an RTS. Also, The Elite Force series was well made. FPS games are always easy to pull off but it was actually fun to play which is a plus.
Conclusion: Why the hell can’t anyone make a close to decent Trek game? Honestly, has there ever been one that is good? I can’t really think of any off the top of my head. With a universe as large as Treks, I think it is a shame that they can’t come up with SOMETHING, other than the shit box Tony reviewed. If anyone ever made a good RTS game based off trek…just thinking about it gives me the jitters.
Summary: This game had everything going for it, even Walter and George reprising their roles as Sulu and Chekov, but the game just falls flat. The levels are repetitive and very difficult, almost impossible even with invinciblity as another reviewer here said. The game gets old fast, the game play is just the same thing every level. This game is also very dull, I tried to play this game twice and I always stop by the fourth level.
Summary: Some of the levels are seemingly impossible. Even with cheats like infinite shields, the game is insanely hard. In one of the levels you have a couple minutes to destroy an insane amount of ships. Don't waist your time unless you are a serious trekkie and really good with this type of game.
Summary: Located in the "Mirror Universe" of Star Trek TOS, the game features the voices of George Takei and Walter Koenig. Sadly, the game is intended for a very skilled kind of player, used to dogfights. This, and the lack of proper controls make this game a hard one to master. The graphics are average, below the ones we're used to see in PC games of the ST franchise.
Summary: What is this? Maybe it's just me, but I thought I was a pretty good gamer, I normally beat all my games, mostly in the first week easy. But, after or during the 5th mission I flat out couldn't beat it. After 5 or 6 tries at 30 minutes a pop, I gave up. This could be quite possible the worst gaming experience I have ever had.
