What resulted was a great adventure. You are in charge of the Away Team as you undertake unconventional missions under the Starfleet radar (and of course, try to save the universe). You have a bunch of well-balanced characters to choose from on your missions. You can operate up to 5-6 characters, clicking on their face and activating their special objects. The interface was very easy to handle and you get the bonus of Data and Worf.
I had never played this kind of game before, so perhaps that's why I think it's so cool. If you're a Star Trek fan you might like this more than the average player as they might find it a bit weak... but I didn't. You soon learn what tactics work (and which ones don't). Hint: Save often and come up with a numbering scheme or something to keep track of your saves as you'll very quickly come up with a long list if you save often like I do!
This is not very cinematic-heavy, so if you're into that sort of thing this might seem a bit low on that. Many missions offer different ways to complete them, they get progressively harder, and your game can be completely different depending on what team you pick (I'm replaying it with different team members). Each character has their own set of dialogue which can be rather amusing. Hint: If you think you've picked the wrong team restart the mission, you'll save yourself a headache!
The difficulty levels come in 'Easy' or 'Normal'.Read more ›
