Summary

A great real-time strategy game

The Good

The graphics are great. Ships fire phasers, torpedoes and a slew of other weapons.

You can actually zoom in close to watch the action up-close. The sounds are incredible. You'll think that you are in a movie. Every time you click on a ship, the captain says something in appropiate response to your commands. The controls are intuitive and soon you'll find yourself mistaking the mouse and keyboard for a tactical control panel. The story is also top notch and could be straight from a movie. You get to be the Federation, Borg, Romulans and Klingons, each with their own special weapons and attributes.

The Bad

The AI can be poor. In a normal game, your opponents have an annoying habit of building stations in your base and building mining stations nowhere near dilithium moons (the place where you get resources).

The Bottom Line

An excellent game and should be purchased despite the small AI problems.
