  • Summary: Venture into the Black Ops side of the Trek universe as the head of Star Trek AT, a special forces unit brought in to handle those "sticky" situations the Star Fleet won't officially touch, in this self-proclaimed squad-based strategy.

  1. It won't win any awards for graphics or AI, but Away Team is a solid and fun experience.
  2. Despite its minor frustrations, Away Team is still one of the more enjoyable additions to the ever-growing library of Star Trek games.
  3. The AI is somewhat poor and the timing puzzles get really old fast, but overall - the strategy/squad based Star Trek theme really worked out well, and for a single player adventure, ST:AT was all that and a bag of Tribbles.

    This could have been so much more if the mission and team selection were more flexible and less emphasis were placed on the underlying story.
  5. 60
    There's strong overtones of strategic gameplay but sadly, they're never properly realised. As Roy Walker from TV's Catchphrase might say, Away Team is good (ish), but it's not right.
  6. The game lacks any of the extra touches that make something special, especially a Trek game. The game does succeed in the basics. Its playable, the graphics are adequate.
  7. More of the same uninspiring gameplay that makes the license unappealing to game developers. Its failure to adhere to simple precedents or develop surprising action involving interesting characters empties yet another promise of a quality title.

    This game isn't brilliant or anything, but I still had fun with it.
