Star Trek video games have a tendency to get unfavorable criticism. This is something that doesn’t help when your most recent release is an amazingly awful film that attempted to turn the ‘Star Trek adventure’ into a third-person shooter with components of the mythology tossed in as an afterthought. Given that Star Trek is experiencing a renaissance on the big screen and is reputed to return home to TV, it’s a disgrace there’s a lack of presence in the one spot it could truly thrive and that is; computer games.
However, for every one of you holding the arms of your chair while claiming to be the Captain himself we have a list of the 10 best Star Trek computer games you can really appreciate.
9. Away Team
Away Team may be seen as one of the more capricious sections on this list. Taking the acknowledged Star Trek group, tearing it up, tossing it into a tin, setting it ablaze and afterward launching its fiery remains out of a gun into the sun, this Strategy game from Activision made a special effort to make Star Trek lively and energizing when the franchise was fumbling.
With a great story that concentrated on a connivance to take control of Starfleet, Away Team gave you a huge number of characters with genuine profundity. A potent blend of Real Time Strategy, turn-based battle and top-down stealth segments made this one of a kind in Star Trek computer game canon. It was a game which depended on timing and strategic speculation on the ground, as opposed to in space.
8. Star Trek Online
Star Trek Online is a troublesome game. From one viewpoint it’s a different universe of Warcraft clone which, following five years of availability, no more holds the same enthusiasm as it once did. However, on the other hand, it’s an impeccable amalgamation of Massively Multiplayer elements with the Star Trek universe. It’s a MMORPG that switches between third individual ‘ground-based’ battle and visually amazing ship to ship fights.
However STO experiences one of the fundamental downsides in that a large number of the players have been playing it for all that time. This makes it troublesome for new players to get into the game. That being said, Star Trek Online is up there among the best Star Trek recreations ever constructed.
