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.

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 ›

One of the classic Trek PC games. Good fun and challenging in places.Published 10 months ago by Amazon Customer
I played the demo of this game when it came out a few years ago, it's good for its age but you do need to run it in Windows compatible mode for it to work!Published on 24 Jun. 2014 by Mike
