As far as I know, this is the first game to present a first-person perspective, which makes it groundbreaking in a way. But since it is executed in such a poor manner, you won't be missing anything if you pass Star Ship by. It isn't very good, even by late '70s standards.

The Video Game Critic
There are some other incredibly lame variations in which you just try to avoid oncoming squares - umm I mean "asteroids". And the "lunar lander" variations are truly pathetic. You simply move your little ship to the asteroid and push the button. Incredibly, there's no gravity, and hence, no challenge! What an embarrassment! No wonder Atari yanked it from their lineup.
