- Summary: Gamers have the chance to play as two of the most famous science-fiction heroes ever -- Kirk and Spock – in STAR TREK, an original co-op experience that expands and builds on the Star Trek universe. Set in the 23rd Century world of the Star Trek reboot, this cover-based shooter enmeshes playayers in an original story and action-packed combat.… Expand
Jun 5, 2013No, Star Trek is not the best gaming experience you ever had, but it’s a solid, fun title, that follows the philosophy of the J.J Abrams reboot: fast-paced action, adventurous challenges, generous doses of humor and a casual, but entertaining, experience. [June 2013]
Apr 25, 2013It sounds good, but frankly, it just doesn't seem like developer Digital Extremes were able (or allowed) to put forth the time, money, or ingenuity to make anything but a Starfleet-themed cooperative shooter, complete with extreme use of cover-based gunfights, silly mini-games, or bad AI - all of which are generally considered hallmarks of a mediocre action game.
Sep 10, 2013Star Trek is a game with a lot of potential. None of which is being used. The game design is old, incomplete and riddled with bugs. The actors make a decent job and the co-op mode is alright but that is the only good things worth mentioning about this otherwise bland and forgettable tie-in to the movie.
May 2, 2013Its numerous bugs and linear missions make it frustrating to play, and the story never grabs you like a good sci-fi adventure should. Even the most devoted of Star Trek fans will be hard pressed to find something to like in Star Trek The Video Game: there are simply too many glaring problems.
Apr 25, 2013I came in expecting a 7.5, I got what I asked for. Star Trek is an above-average licensed game with solid, albeit uninspired gameplay. Once the AI pathfinding and miscellaneous glitches are fixed, it's well worth looking into.
+The cast of the movie reprises their roles. While some of the delivery from the minor characters is underwhelming, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto gave very good performances as Kirk and Spock.
+Decent writing. The plot was no more ridiculous than Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman's plot for the original J.J. Abrams movie.
+The soundtrack and theatrical presentation helps the game nail the feeling of playing a movie.
+The tricorder scan system and research library feels reminiscent of Metroid Prime's scan visor mechanic. It certainly adds replay value.
+Solid execution of shooter mechanics.
+Cooperative play, when it works, is excellent.
-No splitscreen cooperative play.
-Underwhelming graphics options. Might be adjustable via a configuration file, but I have yet to go digging for it.
-Default controls take some getting used to.
-Dated animations and somewhat lackluster texture work occasionally undercut the dramatic tension.
-Does nothing to innovate.… Expand
Apr 24, 2013Well i am done with pre-orders, the game is not another colonial marines, but nether is it the ultimate Star Trek experince, at a simple movie tie in job, nothing more.
Good voice work
Some set peices are good.
The graphics are last gen to say the least.
Some game stopping bugs concerning the AI.
And worst of all you can see its a console port the PC's power is simply not used nor is there are optimisation.
If you have a console then wait till this game is on sale for at least half the present price, its a generic shooter. nothing more.… Expand
Apr 25, 2013This game is a cheap Mass Effect copy, they didn`t even bothered to change the font and the UI style. The voice acting is horrible ,the lip sync is almost nonexistent and the animations are so bad that the characters snap in a predetermined location. This game is broken ugly and unresponsive.… Expand
Apr 27, 2013Honestly, I should have know there might be a chance of the game being a disaster considering the last two games that I played that were based off a tv or movie were horrible. This game seriously needs more polishing it just seem rushed with the bugs and glitches.… Expand
