5.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek Away Team Review
Star Trek Away Team is one of the best Star Trek Games that there is! During the game you will smuggle your team into a Romulan starbase, Blast your way out of a Borg Cube, save the Klingon homeworld from invasion & Regain Control of a renegade Federation Starship all from the confort of your own home. You will choose four crewmembers out of a Complement of 28 to...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, badly done
I have mixed feelings about this game. It is a great idea. It plays well, and was fun to do so. Well, at least at the start. The problem is that once you've done the first few missions, you realise that its exactly the same thing all the way in. In the end I got fed up with the game and took it back to the shops. Really good idea, and probably worth a look in if you are a...

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek Away Team Review, 21 Aug 2002

This review is from: Star Trek Away Team - Xplosiv (Video Game)
Star Trek Away Team is one of the best Star Trek Games that there is! During the game you will smuggle your team into a Romulan starbase, Blast your way out of a Borg Cube, save the Klingon homeworld from invasion & Regain Control of a renegade Federation Starship all from the confort of your own home. You will choose four crewmembers out of a Complement of 28 to accompany you, each with unique abilities such as computer hack, Mind Meld, and Alien Technology Salvage. As you send your crew out on missions they will learn new abilities that will complement the battle stratagy you use. Another of the games features is the ability to order your team to run, crouch, create a blockade and set up a crossfire. There are also plenty of weapons and equipment to help you complete your mission such as a cloak suit, A Romulan Disrupter, Sniper Rifle and Stun Grenades. A definite must-have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Trek Away Team whisked away several great hours!, 26 Feb 2005
This review is from: Star Trek Away Team - Xplosiv (Video Game)
I got this not too long ago as I have been picking up several games I missed years ago. When I saw the box and realized this was a multi-character team based game (not a first/third person shooter) I was not that excited, until I installed it...
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'. I think it should have another harder difficulty level (especially for replay value) but the Normal level allows you to play and strategize but still have fun. (For example, I'm trying Commandos right now, very similar, but much harder and has ME swearing like a trooper...not always the best form of relaxation!). However, if you like super intricate difficult games you probably won't find this so interesting.
The low-down is: If you want an older game that will run smoothly, not take up too much space, help ease the ST game cravings, and be fun to boot you'll probably like this (and it's dead cheap! I got mine to run on XP with no problems!) If you're new to this sort of game genre and want a kind introduction this is a good start...if you're a hardened veteran you might want to find something a bit more tough and trying...

This review is from: Star Trek Away Team - Xplosiv (Video Game)
you play the role of an Captain under the command of Admiral in StarFleet Intel. and you have to unwrap the mystery of a presence from the federation using Captain Refellian and his USS Incusion starship. it starts easy and gets much much more difficult later on, Good luck if your going to buy this game!. the game itself is fully enjoyable and in true trek fasion.
