If you make to the end of Star Voyager, I commend and admire your abilities. But even if you never defeat the game (like me), you'll spend hours trying to do so. You just may never get that nice feeling you may be used to once you've saved the universe.
There are annoying points, in addition to the steep learning curve, that hold this game back. These include an aggravating collection of sound effects and punishing difficulty. But if you can figure out the esoteric nature of the game, there is some fun to be had here – a resource management system, the ability to explore planets for helpful technology, and simple 3D space combat that make for an interesting and unique entry to the NES library.
Dies Spiel ist langweilig. Man sitzt vor dem Monitor und starrt vor sich hin, während ein paar Eimer über den Bildschirm wandern und die Instrumente irgendwelches Zeug anzeigen oder einen so konfusieren, daß man nichts mehr schnallt. Also, Leute, ich sag‘ Euch was. Ich würde für dieses Spiel nicht 100 Steine auf den Eimer legen wollen, weil es sich nämlich nicht lohnt und einen hinterher nur ärgert. Aber stop! Ein Gutes hat das Programm doch! Die Titelmelodie ist wunderbar dröhnig.

Your reward for figuring out Star Voyager‘s purpose is nothing. Once you know how to read the map and warp and fight enemies, you’ll realize that the game is a mirage, an innocuous action title that shrouds its oversimplicity with obscure mechanics.
