Star Trek: The Video Game – 5 Reasons It Needs To Be Good

WC: Star Trek has had a long gaming history, dating all the way back to 1971’s Star Trek text game. But ever since the release of Star Trek: Legacy in 2006, there’s been a dearth of officially licensed games (fan games and mods are still alive and well though). Aside from Star Trek: Online, there haven’t been any AAA titles released since the critical bomb that was Legacy. That ended when a new Trek game was unveiled during E3 2011 – a third person co-op shooter named “Star Trek,” set after the first JJ Abrams film and featuring Kirk and Spock as the main characters.

Originally slated to be released in 2012, it was pushed back to April 23, 2013, as part of the Star Trek Into Darkness marketing campaign.

Here’s 5 reasons this new Star Trek game needs to be good. (PC, PS3, Star Trek, Xbox 360)
