Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

The single-player and multiplayer are decent, but the controls and options missing really hurt.

Graphics:

The graphics are great, worthy of the DS9 franchise, but Trek games tend to have good graphics.

Sound and Music:

The original soundtrack just doesn't do quite as much as it could for the game, though the faithfully recreated sound effects help quite a bit.

Multiplayer:

The multiplayer is decent but not great, and the ability to bring in custom ships is too limited to really help.

AI and Difficulty:

The AI is good, but far from perfect. One thing I really liked: your wingmen are actually competent.

Controls and Interface:

Fighting the interface really hurts the game, especially the lack of a pause option that will let you give orders.

Overall:

Leave it on the shelf.

Pluses (+)
  • Graphics are great.
  • Minuses (-)
  • Major gameplay flaws.
  • Multiplayer ship imports from Starship Creator aren't useful at all.
