Interplay was a Division of Activision
I'm not really sure why this article claims the game "deserved" better. It received a 35% overall score in PC Gamer, had relatively poor for its time graphics, and still required a then-top-notch graphics card to run.
- If i didn´t pay enough to a magazine, then i get low score. By the way, Klingon Academy is a great game, try it for yourself, and you will agree with me and the article. ;)
This kind of leads on from above. I removed the entire section "Gameplay and significance" for being entirely commentary/POV:
- Klingon Academy is one of the few games to provide a truly Star Trek feel of what piloting a starship might feel like. It includes many valuable and Star Trek-compatible features. This includes multiple ship systems, and detailed operational processes and commands. It also provides realistic space terrain, and ability to travel to multiple space landmarks, including Earth, nebulae, star systems, etc.
- There is just one problem undermining the game's popularity: it is a victim of its own success. Interplay did such a good job of meeting fans' requests, after the complaints about Starfleet Academy, that no one tried to duplicate Klingon Academy. However, due to insufficient marketing of Klingon Academy, few fans realized that Interplay had created an entirely new kind of game, (one more suited to Star Trek), instead of simply a pale sequel to Starfleet Academy.
- Klingon Academy remains of relatively lesser prominence relative to other Star Trek PC games. However, it does deserve a greater prominence than it is generally given in the Star Trek PC game library.
