    If you're looking for a playable version of the classic 1967 episode, “Mirror Mirror”, then Shattered Universe is the game for you. However, if you’re merely looking for a good time with the Star Trek Franchise then you would probably be better served to rent Star Trek IV on DVD.
  2. This game is aggressive and unstoppable in its mediocrity.
  3. Due to its overall poor design the game seems to of become nothing more then a mass of space shooting sequences.

    It contains nothing special and brings nothing new to the genre, meaning it falls below the other better Combat Flight Simulators out there.

    If your stupid game is as fun as watching a pet die, as attractive as an eight-legged dwarf, and as generally cool as getting your chest ruptured by an angered moose, it's bloody well not going to sell or be critically-freaking-acclaimed!
  6. It's just a bad game with crappy cinemas and more than enough frustrating moments to make you weep into your Romulan Ale. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.89]
  7. Simply a terrible game. Bad graphics, poor sound, lousy play mechanics, dull mission design, occasional crashes and no Captain Kirk combine to make this an adventure best left to the unknown.

    Terrible game. Graphics are fair but the playability is horrendous. I can't believe that something this bad would be released. Terrible game. Graphics are fair but the playability is horrendous.
