Star Trek Bridge Crew won’t change the world, but it provides a stunning realization of the Star Trek franchise and brings with it an unparalleled level of immersion and VR fun. I can think of no other franchise that’s better suited to cooperative VR play than Star Trek, and Bridge Crew makes playing with strangers fun again. It also represents the ultimate in wish fulfillment.
When I received my VR headset, I learned about this game and watched some videos. Cool idea but not for me. Then a friend of mine picked up VR, he's a big trekkie. I said if he grabs this game, I'd get it too, cause then I'd have someone to play with. Then they introduced the ability for people without
VR to play which made two people buy it on PC (and can easily crossplay with us PS4 players) which then encourage more friends to go out and buy PSVR headsets. Now that I have a bunch of personal friends that love playing this game, it has become an incredible VR experience and a great teamwork co-op game. And now with the TNG DLC, it has become even greater! I'm not sure how this game could get any better (oh, maybe the ability to stand-up and walk around... especially in the lobby... but that is a minimal change)
This VR game truly lets you experience what it feels like to be a part of the crew on a starship. It is amazing how every role on the ship is interesting enough for everybody. It is just too bad the campaign is rather short.
If you can find some like-minded friends to join your adventures fresh out of Starfleet, Star Trek: Bridge Crew makes for a great social experience. Those that opt for a more single player experience might find themselves missing out on the magic.
Fascinating. It merges a lot of ideas and caveats that shouldn’t work or would be a barrier to entry but manages to overcome a lot of the potential shortcomings. As a VR experience on its own it won’t leave you too impressed, however as a cooperative VR title with asymmetric gameplay it would be difficult to find a finer example. Just be prepared to encounter unsavoury online types along the way, this game will live and die by its online multiplayer.
A good virtual reality experience, but a purchase is only advisable if you are a serious fan of star Trek. The game will require you to play buttons for hours. Of course, aboard a ship from the Star Trek universe.
The first time I can spend hours playing without be tired by the device or dizzy. Very intelligent game is a dream of my childhood to manage a star ship like these ones. It's easy to start and not very complicate to master but require some missions. Something different to others games, something new and only available with this interface. For me is a must if you have a VR and if your are a fan of sci-fy or Star Trek is going to be your best VR game.
Star Trek Crew Brigde is difficult to clearly assess. On the one hand, it allows you to feel like the captain of the Starfleet, on the other hand, the creators offer a simple, almost schematic game with limited interaction with the crew and the universe.
Although as a faithful fan of the universe, I do not regret those few hours spent with the game, but despite everything in the game I missed a more interesting plot and characters that I could even like. The simplicity of entertainment will not take away people who do not know the serial universe, who will most likely be disappointed in it.
You can feel like a captain of a Federation ship
Meaningful use of VR
Pretty good graphics
The game is constantly developed
The multi mode will appeal to RPG fans
A simple repetitive game
The plot is predictable
No interaction with the crew
There are no dialog options
The multi mode can be boring for fans of action games

Played the PC VR version and underwhelming is the best term I can use for this game. It seems like it would be better to play with friends but I don't know anyone who has this game or would even play it. I also got this game for free bundled with some VR gear and I still won't recommended it even if you get it for free... maybe some really big Trek fans might like it but from a gameplay point of view I cannot recommend it.
To boldy go, where no "always online DRM server" has gone before!
Probably the greatest and most immersive Star Trek I've ever played, I want to give this game a solid 8, but I can't. The game is sadly plagued with some seriously bad design flaws, which makes gameplay at times very frustrating, for no good reason...
There was absolutely no reason to DRM this game, absolutely unforgivable. Once my child is old enough to be able to use Playstation VR safely over the age of 12, Ubisoft will have closed its servers and we will all be left with a brick ****.
- Always online DRM means that people like me with the third world of Internet connections can not enjoy this game on single player without frequent game progress being entirely destroyed, at random.
- No save or pause ability when playing offline, meaning that in general you'll need to be emptying your bowels and bladder before starting, as you have to finish a mission in one sitting. Just pray to god that either the Ubisoft server, Playstation Network or your Internet connection don't go down while you're playing.
- On multiplayer, if one person drops out your game, say goodbye to all your progress.
- No mix of AI and human opponents, all AI or all humans, the game is practically dead online so searching for random games to join is practically impossible since you have to wait for 4 people and while waiting, people inevitably drop out
- During the game, if you didn't hear an instruction or misread before the command vanishes into the void, it can be sometimes very easy to get stuck and have difficulty figuring out what you are supposed to be doing and where to go next.
- 1960s Star Trek although realistic to the show, the controls and layout are very confusing unless you use the help popups, literally a wall of buttons and no good visual feedback or maps to know what is going on.
- The Kobayashi mission, rescuing 120 people is literally impossible offline, non only that most people you find online only want to play this mission to boost the trophy, meaning that if you want to play for fun, people usually just want to boost this Kobayash mission and not play for fun.
- Non VR view mode, most of the text is too small and hard to read, seems clearly just a bolt on feature added to boost sales due to the lack of sales when it was VR only
- Main missions are fun the first time you do them, but so linear that you probably never want to play them ever more than once. The random mission mode at least band aids over the problem somewhat, although you'll grow tired of the same voice samples.
I really loved this game at first but now, so much of it frustrates me and always playing in fear, haste even, because I never know when I'm going to get kicked back to the main menu due to the god awful DRM always online requirement.
This game is bad by design, and by design ruined by DRM, these design flaws are not by mistake, it's literally created on purpose. I hope a patch can fix some of these issues.
It's ironic that a futuristic game will in actual fact be completely unplayable in the future.
I wouldn't recommend this game in it's current state, not unless you have an amazing stable Internet connection, 3 reliable friends to play with and are fine with the fact that one day you'll wake up. Unable to play this game ever again because Ubisoft will have shut down the servers when the game is no longer making them any money.
if this game had no DRM and the ability to play online with 2 or 3 players, and AI would continue to operate for players who dropped out, and the ability to join a game in progress. I'd give this a solid 8 or 9. Otherwise I'm sorry to say, I give this game a lowly 2. A great game, ruined by terrible business practices and bad multi player design.
Its everything BumFrontMan wrote and more .... Had constant crashes just as was finishing 60 mins runs before save point .Navigations Pathfinding is horrible and they still want to charge another full game for the DLC . Discusting Ubisoft ....
SummaryDeveloped specifically for VR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is the only game to offer a true-to-life level of immersion in the Star Trek universe, where- as officers of the Federation- every action and decision you make together will determine the fate of your ship and crew.
