Pretty, but very poorly executed space shooter.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

What seemed like a good idea on paper really didn't transfer well to the game world at all – similar to other like-minded attempts such as Undertow (also on the Xbox Live Arcade). The game relies on players online to make the game somewhat enjoyable. Playing alone is possible with computer controlled ships rounding out the teams on both sides of the battle, but that gameplay will tire quickly even the most dedicated Trekkies. Downloading the free game demo should be more than enough to see what the game has to offer.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
