Product Description

Product Description

In Star Trek: Invasion, you play a Valkyrie fighter pilot reporting to Unit Commander Worf, who will guide you through 30 space-shooter missions. You'll first have to complete some training missions to firm up your maneuvering and fighting abilities, and then you'll go up against Romulans and the Borg. You're equipped with weapons from the series, such as photon torpedoes and onboard phasers, as well as some newer firepower in the form of homing rockets, gravity bombs, and more.

Star Trek: Invasion incorporates enough Star Trek elements to keep the fans happy, but not so much that gamers unfamiliar with the series will feel left out. If you're less concerned about keeping the Beta Quadrant safe than you are about dogfighting other ships, the game features a two-player combat mode that will allow you to fight to the death. There's also a play-nice two-player cooperative mode.

Amazon.com

While Star Trek: Invasion never quite reaches the lofty heights of the Colony Wars games, it's still worth a look even if you're not a green-blooded trekker.

Set in the time line of the Next Generation TV and film series, Invasion has you cast in the role of a fighter pilot destined for a big part in the upcoming war against the Earth-bound Borg. The Borg is not the only Trek race to show up in here; the Cardassians, Klingons, and Bajorans are all along, too. Speaking of the Trek gang, actors Michael Dorn as Worf and Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard contribute good voice acting to an all-around solid production.

The visuals in Invasion are uniformly sharp and show an attention to detail that almost makes the old PlayStation beg for mercy. The planets, the ships, the explosions (especially the explosions!) are topnotch. The music, however, is painfully repetitive. Disturbingly, the controls in Invasion are way too sensitive for all but the most die-hard space jockeys. The Valkyrie space fighters often make too wide a turn, resulting in constant misfires and untimely deaths.

Perhaps because it is set in the more politically correct universe of Star Trek, Invasion does lack the Colony Wars games' level of intense, gritty combat, and its story isn't nearly as engaging. Yet, for a laser blast-filled journey into the final frontier, it's still a fun ride. --Mark Brooks

Pros:

  • Lovely graphics push the PlayStation to its limits
  • Excellent voice acting all around
  • Easy to get into
Cons:
  • Awkward controls
  • Light story line doesn't compete with standout games in this genre
  • Too few missions

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be a Star Trek fan to enjoy this game! September 4, 2000
I was excited when I heard that there was going to be a Playstation game with a Star Trek theme and that excitement has not decreased over the past few days that I have been actually playing the game. If any of you have played the Playstation game Colony Wars you will recognize the influences of that game in Star Trek:Invasion. The gameplay is more or less the same as Colony Wars but with a Star Trek theme. You are given mission objectives such as engaging a Borg cube or protecting the Bajoran transport from the aliens bent on destroying it and that is just to name a few of the many missions in the game. Controlling your ship does take a little getting used to as the analog stick does have a 'hairy trigger' so to speak. But once you get past that little annoyance the game sucks you in and won't let you go. You will spend many sleepless nights trying to save your Federation freighters from the barage of phaser fire emitting from the banks of the enemy's ship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting March 24, 2003
Well let's start with the basics. Very good graphics for a Playstation game. The game play gets a little tedious after a while. It's just flying through space and blowing things up, over and over and over and over again. The music is so repetitious that I kept flying my Valkyrie into things just to die. But then again it can be fun if you're looking for a game with explosions and sometimes extremely difficult missions. For the most part the game is entertaining, but if you get stuck in a mission, you'll be stabbing pencils in your ears to get away from the musical scores in this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warp Factor 9 November 8, 2000
By A Customer
As a Star Trek fan I will admit a certain amount of bias in writing a review of this game but I can honestly say it was well worth the wait! I have been waiting for a long time for Playstation to market a Star Trek fighter game and I am very satisfied with Invasion. Manuverability and the realistic detail to ships and hazards are outstanding. Plus the cameos of Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn (Capt. Picard and Commander Worf) were excellent additions to this game. All of the enimies proved challanging and versitile. I would definetly give this game 4 1/2-5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars RESISTANCE IS FUTILE November 4, 2000
By A Customer
If you are a Trekkie or just a casual fan you will love this game. It is hard to get used to the controls (I'm used to Colony Wars)and the missions can be very hard but they are NOT impossible. As with most of the best games on the market this one is difficult and will take time to complete all the missions. You will have to have some dedication (like all 3 Colony Wars or any Tomb Raider game) to complete the game. But, if you liked Star Trek TNG you will love it when you attack the Borg and hear "Resistance is Futile, you will be Assimulated". The special effects, mission line, and voice and music score is very good. It is hard to make a PS1 game as good as a PC game. But, I think Activision did a really good job!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool Star Trek Game for the Playstation. July 25, 2003
When a Federation science vessel, the U.S.S. Discovery, builds a probe in Klingon Space, it is then destroyed by a large Borg fleet. The U.S.S. Discovery then sends the telemetry from the probe before it was destroyed to Starfleet Command. When Starfleet realizes that the Borg is coming, they send Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-E, to investigate. Also aboard is Lieutenant Commander Worf of station Deep Space Nine, where Picard gives him a carrier starship, the U.S.S. Typhon, to compensate with the upcoming Borg invasion. He then recruits twenty ensigns from the U.S.S. Enterprise. You will soon realize that the Borg are not here to fight the Federation, but it is even more. Captain Brennan of the U.S.S. Sentinel NCC-1703-B has been defying Starfleet orders and is becoming allies with some gross-looking aliens. The game takes place two years after Star Trek: Insurrection, and has two aliens, one which the Klingons know, the Hur'q, they aren't mentioned until the U.S.S. Discovery is attacked by them and leaves them adrift in the Scorpion Nebula. And also a sort of insect-like creature, the Kam'Jahtae is thrown into the story in the beginning of the game's fourth mission. Voice talents of Patrick Stewart as the U.S.S. Enterprise-E's captain, Jean-Luc Picard, and Michael Dorn from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as Worf are in it. Survive 30+ missions via big cheat, that unlocks all weapons, missions and the option you can't die.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not so good graphics... August 29, 2000
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
But what can you expect of a PlayStation game? I haven't gotten anywhere NEAR finishing the game, but it seems pretty good. You get to star as a Red Squad elite member, flying missions on behalf of the Klingon Empire. Worf (voiced by Michael Dorn who must've had a cold that day) leads and trains you for your missions. If you've ever played Colony Wars, this game will seem VERY familiar. The smallish levels, the handling of the Valkyre, and the screen before the actual mission starts seems to be taken from Colony Wars. I'd suggest any hard-core Star Trek fan get the game, like me. But I think I'll still be playing Star Trek Armada LONG after Invasion begins collecting dust on my shelf.
