Star Trek: Resurgence is a brilliant game that successfully recaptures the spirit of the classic shows. The former Telltale developers, Dramatic Labs, effectively update the formula to bring variety and ensure that adventurers are consistently engrossed. If you are a Trekkie or have enjoyed games made by Telltale, definitely put this on your gaming to-do list.
The lack of accessibility options with regard to control and display customization also threatens to make Star Trek: Resurgence less inclusive than its Federation values would suggest. Nevertheless, these quibbles are things that I found relatively easy to overlook, considering how well the game channels qualities of Star Trek long absent from the franchise’s adaptations. I’d choose instead to hope Dramatic Labs addresses some of these concerns through patches and updates. Those like me, who are able to put aside those complaints, will find a thrilling and refreshing dose of Trek fan service, and perhaps the beginning of a special journey, in Star Trek: Resurgence.
Genuinely fantastic authentic Star Trek adventure. It puts recent TV efforts to shame for how well it puts you into the universe of Star Trek. Its not the highest graphical fidelity and it lacks a wee bit of polish here and there, the quick time events sometime feel a bit like they're there just for the sake of it. But in the end these are minor issues in an otherwise wonderful Star Trek story with first class writing and voice acting.
A game for a true Trek fan. Good story and good graphics with excellent philosophical dilemmas. I really was invested in the characters as if I was watching a good Trek movie.
Review for PC. The bad, frame rate can be a bit off at times and no options for high resolutions, but in the end this didn't bother me much. I really only noticed it when I first started.
Star Trek: Resurgence has an interesting story with thought-provoking scenarios and two good protagonists. While it makes adequate use of the interactive-story genre, there was room to improve the choices and gameplay.
The story of Star Trek: Resurgence does an excellent job of capturing what makes Star Trek work by presenting strong characters and tough decisions. Some storylines lack closure and it doesn’t always run smoothly, but its heart is in the right place.
PC - RTX4080.
Having been a long time Trekkie I discovered this by accident while scrolling the Epic store and decided to by it on a whim as the reviews looked good.
Now I don't usually either pre order or purchase games at release as I've been burned before (Arkham Knight i'm looking at you!) but I thought sod it, it can't be that bad... oh how wrong I was!
Graphically this is nothing to shout about, it's done in Telltale's sudo comic book style (as the devs are ex TT staff) which I could accept as adequate if it wasnt for the god awful lack of graphical options. Who builds a game in 2023 with no native widescreen support? FML it is painful trying to get this working on a 4k monitor.
But even if you can get it to play with your display it won't matter as the game will be locked to 30FPS (again in 2023!!!) for some unfathomable reason. Why? I mean it's not as if the Unreal Engine can't handle it especially as it looks like a PS3 era game.
Next is the character movement and facial animations. Holy **** on a stick, for a narrative heavy point and click based game the lack of fluidity in movement and the comical facial expressions actually take you out of the moment more often than drawing you in.
Following on from that **** show is the sound, or lack there of. I'm sure there are some interesting conversations to be had in this game. I couldn't tell you though as I can't hear any of them through the clipped audio and horrendous lip syncing issues.
Gameplay wise, it's serviceable. You're here for the story, which is actually really good, but you keep getting interupted by random QTE which often break the immersion of a scene and are usually just filler. Oh and if you ever wanted to know if being in phaser dual is exciting... if this game is anything to go by the answer is nope. It is instead just mildly annoying.
Much like the controls and oh my god the motion blur! Just give me options for graphics and controls!!!
So you may think at this point that I think ST:R is a POS? Well currently, in it's bug riddled, half arsed, comically broken state, yes it is. The only thing that is saving it is the story.
If they can address the major bugs with a patch then i'll give it another go just to see the story though, as it really is that good. But until then, sorry this is getting shoved back onto the proverbial shelf for a while. That'll teach me for wanting nice things!
Maybe its good on PS4 but having no graphic setting on PC is weird. Having 1080p and 30 FPS locked looks absolutelly terrible. This makes Star Trek Online look good (which is btw over 10 years old). Pc port could use some work. Cant speak about the rest since i decided to wait for a patch. I know that graphics doesnt matter that much but i want it to be at least watchable. + its Epic only.
Why is it that star trek games are always made by people that have no idea how to make a game fun? The graphics are sub standard for a modern game, The npc animations are as bad as watching a puppet show. Everyone moves like a robot, Similar to the original tomb raider game. The icons for pushing buttons look very childish, Like something a toddlers app would have. The game play is horrid during action scenes, They tell you to push a button, Then jerk you into a cut scene before you can push it. Overall this game is dull, And lackluster, And extremely clunky to control. The choices you make have very little impact on the game, And you will spend 99% of your time just waiting to push another button. It is boring in the extreme. If it costs more than five dollars, Don't buy it.
This is an ok Star Trek story but i disagree with people saying it's for people who like TNG.
It's more for people who like Discovery, Strange New World and the first seasons of Picard.
But this is a videogme and wow is a bad one. Maybe it's better on a console.,. But this janky ill ported mess is not worth spending money on the PC.
