An original text based adventure in the Star Trek Universe
Hmm, while I mostly prefer the second, Picard Star Trek series, the original ones is not without its merits. And so, at the time it created some buzz gaming wise, and, to my surprise it had spawned a few text based games as well. One of them, the Star Trek - The Promethean Prophecy here is a surprisingly cogent adventure, with a really interesting storyline and also with gadget based (mostly) puzzles that will really impress you. Compared to the Fisrt Contact text adventure
, which I also liked a lot it's got a more soap opera like story, but, as you get immersed in it, it's really captivating. You will be exploring the planet Prometheus, for a very interesting immediate scope. Nope, it won't be because you have some science related quest to fulfill, but because for some reason your replicators have ceased to work, which puts the entire crew in danger of starvation. But, of course, things spiral out of control and you'll find yourself immersed in a much more intense story. Difficulty wise, for text adventures, I would rate this a 3 out of 5 which is best, especially if you don't want to play with a walkthrough at the ready, but having seen the original series will help, as you'll better understand more of the equipment and the roles of the crew members. But, unquestionably, Star Trek - The Promethean Prophecy is a great adventure game.
