CGM: How Star Trek: The Game Stands Up

Essentially, this game is an on-rails arcade shooter with supplementary mini-games. One player is whack-a-moling down the bad guys while the other completes a variety of puzzles. It’s a clear attempt to combine the intellectual prowess lauded by Star Trek’s TV franchises with the cowboys-and-indians action adventures of the movies. Our PR representative acknowledged that ‘Star Trek has never been about just shooting the bad guys,’ and indeed this game does compel the players to do other things besides butt-kicking for justice. But I felt like Paramount weren’t brave enough to give players genuine choice about whether to fight with brains or brawn. (PS3, Star Trek, Xbox 360)
