Play Time (Apr, 1991)
Star Control ist ein amüsantes Spiel, die Regeln für das strategische Spiel sind einfach, stellen jedoch ein Vielzahl von Optionen zur Verfügung. Der Arcadeteil bringt eine nette Abwechslung zum anstrengenden Nachdenken und ist leicht zu meistern. Die Möglichkeiten, den Computer entweder für die Strategie oder den Kampf einzusetzen, sind auch nützlich.
Commodore Format (Mar, 1991)
It's by no means a mainstream game and that may put off more people than it attracts. Star Control makes a challenging strategy bash for those who fancy a long lonely slog but it's not the final frontier.
Zzap! (Apr, 1991)
The year is 2162, and the Earth has a treaty with the Alliance of Free Stars. It appears that the alliance is under threat from an evil empire, the Ur-Quan Hierarchy. From the initial menu, you can choose two purely arcade selections: the practice and melee (both ship-to-ship combat), or you can dive into the Full Game where a semblance of strategic play comes into effect with mining, colonising and fortifying as options. This Full Game area comprises of nine different scenarios, the first choice being aimed towards the beginner. For those players who skip through all nine missions you have the option of editing and creating your own with a separate customisation utility.
