  • 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 main problem with Star Trek: Away Team, however, is the enemy AI. Whichever skill setting you play on (there are only two) you will find yourself confronted by some of the most stupid opposition ever found in a video game.
  4. 65
    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. Isn't going to blow anybody away with its relatively uninspired, non-strategic gameplay, but its package of solid graphics, sound, and timing puzzles is a passable one that most gamers will spurn, but die-hard franchise fanatics will enjoy.
  7. A potentially good tactical strategy game marred by a lack of inspiration.
