Product Description

Product Description

Star Trek: Away Team puts you in charge of an elite group of officers brought together to take care of the Federation's dirty laundry. Your Special Forces unit will consist of 22 characters, each with a unique expertise such as medicine, engineering, science, security and command. Before each of the 18 missions, you'll pick a team consisting of three to six officers, based on what type of skills you'll need in order to complete the mission. During the missions you'll view the game from a classic isometric perspective, and can move your squad in real time or pause the game to issue commands. Enemies include Borg, Klingons, Romulans, and rogue Federation members. Locations include Qu'nos, Romulus, Earth and Vulcan. Equipment includes tricorders, phasers, hyposprays and phaser rifles.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Star Trek Away Team is a top down optional RTS game that sees you command a four man away team through a number of missions behind enemy lines. With an interface similar to Commandos the movement is mainly controlled via the mouse and shortcut keys rather than face paced First Person Shooter action.

Armed with the task of helping out where the Federation can't, Star Trek Away Team sees you play Captain Refelian on the USS Incursion, a new class of ship that can cloak/mask itself to look like any other class ship across the Star Trek universe.

Guiding you through your missions as you fight the Borg, Kinglons and of course Romulons is the voice of Brent Spinner--otherwise known as Data--and although you are unable to play him, it offers the familiarity that we all come to depend on in the Star Trek games.

Anyone who enjoyed Commandos or general strategy will be at home with the control system, especially the visual shortcuts. Trading on the roots of other great strategy games makes for a good start; and you can skip the handholding of early missions.

The 2-D viewpoint makes for a specification-friendly game except for the 600 Mb disk space; the main processor can trade down to under 350Mhz and less than 32 Mb on your graphics card. Being Star Trek it's almost blood free. The morality code within the game encourages stealth and long-range tactics; not the wading in with all guns blazing prevalent in Elite Force. Like its first-person elder brother, it succeeds by being a good game, Star Trek or not. --Kenneth Henry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Commandos in space 30 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
Anyone who liked Commandos behind Enemy lines should buy this games as it is essentially more of the same. The game will reward a more stealthy appproach to objectives, rather than going in with guns blazing.
The 18 missions may not sound like a huge number but Commandos... only had 8 and took forever to complete as the missions were extremely challenging. This game promises to reward real strategy and intelligence, unlike most RTS games which involve nothing but building until you outnumber the enemy.
I would only gave it four stars as it doesn't offer anything original over Commandos. Also the difficulty level and the fact you cannot lose any of your men may frustrate some people. That said if you want a challenge this is the game for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now hear this! 10 April 2001
By A Customer
Right now I'm really enjoying this game - it has the same feel of Balders Gate 2, but without the complex D&D rule system. The star trek atmosphere adds to the game - BUT you don't need to be a trek fan to enjoy it. My only glitch is that controlling the team is difficult at times, but with the handy addition of the ability to pause the game when the enter key is pressed or when a crew member is attacked - you can plan your defensive stratergy easily. All in all if you love RTS/RPG games, then this is for you. (Plus trek fans will love the voices of Data and Worf being integrated into the game!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking 2 May 2001
By A Customer
Finally developers seem to have got it, after the truely shameful excuses of the past, Away Team is a must for ALL trek fans. Unfortunately the game does suffer from the number of missions, that's hope that this paves the way for add-ons, with more races, missions and planets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok 29 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
The game promises much-does it provide? I don't really think so. The game's demo included some good CGI animations but in the full game, after the 4th level, the CGI animations disappear and we see a star field in the briefings. This touch meant that the game seemed unfinished. Another point- the autonomy of the team members was appalling! If shot they simply said a phrase and DIDN'T fire back!! Some of the theories in the game (like sound cones) didn't always work so you might be sneaking through a base in crouch mode, staying out of sight and earshot and suddenly WHAM! the entire base is upon you! Dissapointingly short (17 levels) and rather easy

4.0 out of 5 stars Its Good. 2 Dec. 2003
By Isen
I bought this game because I was bored and looking for something different. I must say that it didn't disappoint, it got the grey cells working and even managed to raise a certain amount of frustration at times......human error is a horrible thing.
The graphics were good, the concept was good and the game play was also good. If you like this type of game then I'd definately give it a go it wont make you wish you'd spent your money else where.
I didn't give it 5 *'s because in the end it wasn't really my bag man!! nether-the-less I did enjoy playing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought it had a lot to give 28 July 2001
By A Customer
Although there are glitches in some missions, once you've learnt how to play the game well, the only thing that can stop you are your mistakes. So your Team doesn't return fire when attacked. This is good on some missions, though, where you aren't allowed to kill anyone.
The missions get progressivly harder and although the third or fouth might 'seem' hard when you first play it, the game has a lot more to offer.
With spectacular backgrounds, you can visit a lot of places. I just might ask, cutscenes???? Also the graphics could be better when you zoom out to get a better look around you.
