  • Summary: Serve the Empire well and it will shower rank, medals, prestige, and new ships on you. Serve the Empire ill and ... well, space is full of tiny Police Frigates, each manned by crews that never distinguished themselves in battle. [Interplay]

  1. Besides these minor quirks, SC2 is a deep and complex foray into the Star Trek universe. The sheer amount of acronyms for the different spaceships alone is a testament to that fact.
  2. It is like "Diplomacy," "Privateer," and "Space Combat" merged into one. The thrill will linger for a long time as the options seem endless.
  3. If you want an exciting starship combat simulator that presents some real challenge, this is the best.
  4. For the player who relishes a realtime space strategy simulation, nothing can touch the depth of this game.
  5. An incredibly deep and versatile tactical battle simulator, which is fun at first, but not complete enough to provide a compelling long-term play experience.
  6. It's terribly challenging and terribly addicting, although its longevity can certainly be questioned due to the design of the campaign game.
  7. A game with so much potential and so many great ideas, but, despite being a sequel, it doesn't have the polish necessary to deliver a compelling game.
