Based on the 1960s feature movie
Star Trek: 25th Anniversary is an adventure game, which contains both classic point and click mechanics, but adds to the recipe some first person action, from the cockpit, and from the point of view of the members of the Enterprise spaceship, that command the bridge. Also, there are a few levels that are delivered in sidescroller style, but the majority of the game is the adventure mode. As Kirk, you can order your crew around, you can also move about and inspect elements and generally, you have all the freedom that a point and click offers. The first person battles are simple, clashes in space, where the most important thing is that you prioritize the ship's energy sources the right way. Last, the sidescroller portions are maybe the least well produced, but they are still playable, and break the game in chunks, making it less likely to bore you. Graphically, all of the portions of the game look alright, but don't expect some out of this world production quality; it's fair to say that Star Trek: 25th Anniversary looks mostly like a good, rather budget oriented title. So, all in all, Star Trek: 25th Anniversary is worth it, as is Star Trek - Judgment Rites, again, based on the original series.
