Star Trek: Bridge Crew
Top Critic Average
Star Trek Bridge Crew puts you in the seat of a Federation starship where you can be captain or crew. The game shines when playing with other human beings, but fails greatly when playing with AI. An excellent experience for the trekker inside you, if you find a suitable crew to play with.

While Star Trek: Bridge Crew might lose players along the way because of its particular gameplay and lore, the game has the merit of being original compared to other VR experiences on the market. The immersion is decent thanks to the use of the PlayStation Move and PlayStation VR, but it still requires you to play in co-operative multiplayer to fully live the experience instead of relying on AI bots.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a Trek fan’s dream – the chance to gather your friends and man the bridge of a starship together. Even non-Trek fans will be able to extract a lot of enjoyment out of the game, thanks to its intuitive gameplay mechanics and helpful tutorials.
If you dream of being on a Starfleet vessel, commanding the starship or punching it into warp, you won't find any better alternatives.
However, what Bridge Crew does succeed in creating is the sense of teamwork and camaraderie that all Star Trek shares. It feels like the next evolution of a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, or a virtual reality LARP.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a fun simulator game. It lets you experience manning a spaceship in outer space. It’s a nice little escape if you’ve ever dreamed of going beyond the space frontier. I really loved staring at its visuals. The vast expanse of space was just breath-taking. I just wish that we could have played this game without having to be always online. But if you have the means to do so, then I would recommend that you play this game. I’ll see you guys in the space frontier. Long live and prosper!
Overall, Star Trek Bridge Crew is a solid experience. A couple of small details to maybe work on but these can easily be addressed in future updates. The Co-Op is fun and better then the single player missions, but single player as well as the tutorial allows you time to get used to the somewhat complex controls and help not make you look like a total newb when going into the real thing with other people online.
I love this game. I really, truly love it. It's the realisation of a genuine fantasy, and, as I said at the start of the review, this is the kind of completely immersive experience that is exclusive to VR that makes for the most compelling argument for the technology.
For those of you who are Star Trek fans it's probably the best game based on this license ever made.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a fantasy come to life for Star Trek fans.
