Employing a bit of role-reversal, this title offers players the opportunity to direct the soullessly utilitarian Borg, invading new planets, assimilating native species, and strengthening the Collective. The game's scripted campaign mode includes 12 progressively challenging levels as the player attempts to assimilate increasingly resistant cultures.
Each successful assimilation brings new technology and abilities, better preparing the Collective for its next challenge. Once the campaign has been completed, players can continue across the Alpha Quadrant in a "Freestyle" mode, which offers more customization options and a wider selection of gameplay settings.
Star Trek: Borg Assimilator was developed by veterans at Cyberlore Studios, who created the innovative real-time strategy game Majesty and also produced the WarCraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal expansion package. Relying on the experience gained in the development of these successful products and on the international popularity of the Star Trek universe, this release is designed to provide a fresh, new experience in a legendary setting. ~ T.J.
