Video/Software Games


Recommended Posts

I was wondering how many people play the Star Trek video games? I only have one -- Starship Creator -- which I thought was pretty bad.

Who has other games? Are they any good?

I own Birth of the Federation, a great game, Starfleet Command I and II, both very good, and Star Trek: Borg, which is ok, but is made better by the fact that it stars John de Lancie. :)

I have Starship Creator, and Admiral...you're not the only one who thought it was bad.

I also have:

ST: Judgement Rites (TOS) - lost interest (older game)

ST: Starfleet Command - didn't really like the controls

ST: Starfleet Academy - wasn't bad, could've been better

ST: Armada (I and II) - haven't played yet

ST: Elite Force - awesome game

I've got/played:

Starfleet Command I, II, and III (I like 3 the best, but they could still do better. Nice mods)

Armada I and II (Both are awesome with some cool mods)

Elite Force I (Would have been nice if it worked on my computer better)

Bridge Commander (Pretty cool)

Invasion (Playstation game. Also pretty cool. Neat fighters)

Klingon (Meh)

Borg (Nice game)

I don't know the title, but there was an old TOS PC game that took you through several episode like levels. Never could beat it. Final battle always got me. Good game.

I've played all the versions of Starship Creator. Kinda interesting in the construction phase... the first time. After that, pretty boring.

Falcon, was it a game where you like took the TOS crew on away missions where you had to solve mysteries, resolve problems, etc, then fight like a clone of the enterprise? If it is, it was a game made for the 25th anniversary

I've played Starfleet Command I, II, and III. All pretty good games.

Loved Starfleet Academy-played it until I got the best score possible. If you do EVERYTHING exactly right, Kirk gives you temporary command of the Enterprise-A and you get to take her to meet the new species you've been researching. As you're arriving on the Enterprise, Kirk says "Have her back before midnight, and don't scratch the paint!" :)

Played TNG for Super Nintendo. Decent.

I also played the 25th Anniversary games and Judgment Rites. All very fun and great nostalgia for TOS fans.

Has anyone played / seen the new Star Trek game for the Playstation 2? The name escapes me, but I know it deals with the alternate universe thingy where the Federation are the bad boys. Set in the Star Trek VI timeline..you get to be Sulu and command the Excelsior. Looks really good, but so did Starship Creator. :P

Shattered Universe? If it is then the game has been axed twice and brought back from the grave twice. Not out in the UK for some time. :(

I own:

- Armada 1 & 2,

-Starfleet Command II

-Starfleet Command Orion Pirates

-Star Trek: Invasion

I'm planning on getting the one for P/S 2 whenever I get a new job and get some money again.

I also had the old PC game where you were Kirk, Spock, McCoy and some poor security guy who almost always 9 out of 10 times died.

No Elite Force?

Invasion was good aside from the mission when you had to fly insdie the Borg cube. I did more than scratch the fighters paint. :(

OK, I deleted my previous post after playing Shattered Universe for..ohh..a few hours. I was thinking to myself "There has to be more to it then flying around and shooting stuff..probably in the next mission". Well, no. There isn't. Essentially, all the game consists of is you flying around in a fighter blowing things up, or collecting raw materials to "repair the Excelsior"? (What, Sulu has a mineral processing facility on board?)

The game is equally frustrating when you're 99% done with a mission, only to have Orion Pirates show up to ruin your day. The missions lack any sort of imagination or variety in them. You'll either be:

1) Defending the Excelsior from attack

2) Destroying enemy fighters (I shot down 50 of them in 1 mission, and the game seemed to think that's normal)..

3) Destroying enemy starships AND fighters

4) Getting "raw materials".

I'm about 8 missions into the game and I'm already sick of it. The endless waves of fighters and boring storyline make me want to go play Starfleet Academy again.

Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.

The most notable of these you would know of would probably be "Sims Online," or "Ultima Online."

I too would be skeptical of a Trek MMORPG. I think it would be neat, yes -- but I fear that it would not be what any of us would enjoy. I might be wrong though. ::Shrugs::

I do know that I tried Uru, which is another part of the Myst series, and I didn't like it at all. They released it before they were ready, and the online version is absolutely terrible. The offline, single-player version is okay though. I guess it's hit-or-miss with these type of things.

Mostly miss for the recent ones that have come out. Some future releases look promising, but MMORPG game developers are worse than used car salesman. They promise everything you'd ever want on their website and discussion boards and then when you "drive off the lot" you realize that it was all smoke and mirrors.

Good analogy. That's definitely the feeling I get.
