  • Summary: It's time to leave the vastness of space behind and play out your destiny in the biggest land battle this universe has ever known. In Star Trek: New Worlds, you'll experience this classic universe as never seen before -- on land in full 3-D. [Interplay]

  1. Fans of "StarCraft" "WarCraft," and even "Myth" will love this new addition to the real-time strategy genre, and Trek fans finally have worlds of their own to build, populate -- or destroy.
  2. The construction sounds and repetitive voice samples may get on your nerves after a while, but this is a minor shortcoming.
  3. Clearly an an unfinished game. We have yet to see whether the patch will remedy some of these problems. Well, quite frankly, there are too many obvious flaws and bugs, so it's going to have to be one helluva patch...
  4. If you don't ahve high expectations for a Trek RTS, then you won't be disappointed. [Nov 2000, p.160]
  5. Everything looks the same, wasting nice graphics engine. A galaxy's worth of micromanagment.
  6. A game which is wholly unsatisfying and verging on unplayable.
  7. I'd like to know who decided to make a realtime strategy game, where some of the missions could last a solid 45 minutes to an hour, without the option to save the game.

I would say that the makers made a perfect game!!!!! Collapse

I normally don't even look at the RTS games but as a lifelong Trekkie I gave this a shot. It's okay, the gameplay is easy and the graphics are sweet, but the lack of an ability to save really diminishes the desire to sit and dedicate any time to the game. Expand
