    Star Trek: Bridge Crew may offer a steep learning curve to overcome, but if you've got a trusty crew by your side, there's serious fun to be had here for both fans and non-Trekkies alike. Interiors are well-rendered, control panels are easy to use, and action is intense, making it easy to lose yourself in the one of the first truly cooperative space sims in VR that offers a deeply engaging social component, hopefully lasting well into the 23rd century.

    As far as VR games go, Star Trek Bridge Crew is really solid, and hopefully over time Ubisoft expand the game’s content. There’s still so much more of Trek that could be explored. Star Trek Bridge Crew is must-buy for Star Trek fans with VR headsets, and, although it’s a little pricey, I think the experience is worth all the gold-pressed latinum you can muster.

    Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Star Trek: Bridge Crew is that it’s a VR experience that encourages repeat play. Having put a decent amount of time into the title already, it’s understandable that some may hope for additional content added, such as an adversarial crew vs crew mode. What’s in the package already, though, makes for some hectic times and an incredible use of the technology. The message behind the actual game mechanics, that of the need for understanding and cooperation among the players, is possibly the most clever expression of the themes of the franchise a game has ever mustered.

    Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a triumphant recreation of what it means to be on the bridge of an Enterprise-caliber ship from the classic sci-fi universe. If you play with friends then you’re bound to have an amazing time full of laughs, stress, and action. Playing alone is tough, but doable The bulk of your time will likely be spent with the randomized Ongoing Voyages mode since the campaign is brief and shallow. If you’re searching for a game that captures the esoteric and cerebral nature of Star Trek, though, then you’ll be a bit disappointed.

    A thrilling, authentic recreation of Star Trek that brings out the team player in everyone. Just a shame it's such a pain to set-up.

    Star Trek fans can't miss this experience, but the lacking content and some problems leave a bad taste in our mouths.

    While the concept is a prime example for a meaningful implementation of VR into otherwise rather dry gameplay mechanics, the lack of content is very harmful. A great virtual experience hidden in a weak game.

If you've ever wanted to command a star ship, this game will make you feel like you're there, actually doing it. Each station has just enough depth to feel like there's strategy in what you're doing.

    Also, this is one of the first VR multiplayer titles I've found with a great thriving community. Tons of people online, and I've yet to have to wait for players.

    Most fun I've had in VR to date, and a must purchase for any Trek fan, or hell, anyone with a VR headset.

    As others have said, it could use a DLC back for more mission types. The devs are asking for feedback on the ubi forums site though, so I'm hopeful that they'll keep providing support for this down the line.

PC is where it is if you want to enjoy this game totally.

    PC Version...10/10...full speed ahead.
    PSVR, 5 out of ten.......because half the fun of this game is in online with other people and it seems nobody is playing on the PSVR.

Yes much of the content there is focuses heavily on combat. Yes they've played rather fast and loose with elements of the trek universe. Yes much of the control and simulation are a bit too simple, and yes it's priced rather excessively.

    Yet I find myself coming back time and time again, somehow despite the above the actual gameplay feels compelling, the experience of being on the bridge so convincing and the interaction with, what is easily the best community I've encountered in an online game, so entertaining and rewarding. Even when playing on your own there is something special about this game. Sure it's not the perfect spaceship game, nor is it the perfect Star Trek game. But when you add the sheer awesomeness of being transported onto the Bridge of a Starship thanks to the power of VR it becomes one of the most enjoyable games I've played in a very long time.

    We're at the start of the journey here, with luck the game will expand well beyond what's there today, but even if it doesn't this is an unmissable experience. A real indication of how amazing VR is.

The game does have some flaws such as minimal options when it comes to avatar customisation, poor lip synching, the forcing of VOIP to be always-on, the lack of licensed music as well as it being pretty fiddly to setup if buying from the UPlay store, but it also seems to capture the feeling of being a Starfleet captain quite well and if you can happen to rope three Trekkie mates to play the game regularly, then it would definitely be a worthwhile addition to your collection.

    If you have two to three friends that own PSVR and love Star Trek: You will have the time of your live with this game.

    If you're just looking for another PSVR game: You will be bored.

    If you love Star Trek but haven't been able to convince your friends to buy PSVR: You will get some enjoyment out of this, but it will get boring quickly.

    Bridge Crew is a really great example of what VR is capable of. It is, however, also a game that is only really fun if you play it with your friends. That's the reason why I can "only" give a decent score of 7. A mentioned, with Star Trek loving friends, it's a 10/10. Alone, depending on how much you love Star Trek, and based on the rather small amount of content and the really dumb "AI crew", it's somewhere around 5/10.
