You will conduct scouting operations and use your tricorder to decide where to establish bases to best accomplish your missions. Choose to view everything from either an overhead or third-person perspective. Star Trek New Worlds comes with 14 different single-player missions, as well as six multi-player missions.
That wow doesn't last long. You'll soon get confused and annoyed with nearly everything in the game.
Mission briefings are plain rubbish, with just a few hints at what you have to do and no information where you have to go.
Computer AI is almost pitying, you tell a unit to move around an object, 2 seconds later it moves and if it bumps into something while moving, it will sit there for another couple of seconds before moving around it. That delay can be so unacceptable when in battles.
No save option has to be the worst part of it. You can often spend HOURS on a level to end up failing without knowing why. The kill-all-units style missions can be unforgiving as well with how long you sometimes have to take to find that one damn unit.
Resource gathering can be excruciating. Knowing what resource amounts to what is hard enough, without having to find some PERFECTLY flat square hard ground to build the mine on and protect it with your limited population allowance, since buildings add to the total population size. To have a decent colony you have to use up 2/3 of you pop limit, which is harsh.
Then there are the bugs. One of the worst is where your units just literally shoot half way across the level and then IF you find them you'll see them moving left and right quickly underneath the ground. If can get them back somehow (I have managed to sometimes) then they are often on a mountain that they can't get off, miles away from where you need them. When it’s your main force, it can make you want to quit straight away.
There are few good things about it, graphically it is quite good and there some nice tunes and sound affects. That’s what made me warrant it 2 stars. Star Trek die-hards MIGHT want to buy this game, but everyone else, steer well clear.
the interface is frustrating.
The gameplay is slow
it has no atmosphere
you can spend hours on one mission just looking for one enemy unit.
Resource management is hard as is isn't always clear what you need to build up your forces...
Well no not really. Read more
