Star Trek: The Video Game Review | The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail: "I tried to like the game, both because I’m something of a fan of the series and out of patriotism for London, Ont.-based developer Digital Extremes. It’s evident that some serious effort went into parts of Star Trek, but some of the key elements – like how the game looks and plays – got short shrift. At best it’s a mess that looks and feels dated, and at worst it is frustrating and unplayable." (PC, PS3, Star Trek, Xbox 360) 4/10

The trailers made it look like an action game ala Mass Effect

Ouch...

Seriously..why do devs even try with Movie tie in games?

Well that sucks. I really don't think there will ever be another decent movie tie in game...I think they've been working on this game for 2 or 3 years..

If someone does a Star Wars game it probably needs to be an RPG type game, but I'm not sure about leveling. There needs to be Space combat not on rails, which I guess you could level up the enterprise. There needs to be dialogue in the realm of what Bioware can do. Say the wrong things to the Romulans and war can actually break out, things like that.

A good game is doable, but it would take alot of dedication.

The first sentence says Star Wars, but it should say "Star Trek"

You almost induced geek rage, but I forgave your mistake as I shy away from conflict and prefer diplomacy. Like Jean Luc Picard. Who is better than Kirk anyway. Especially when Kirk is Christopher Pine.

Im considering picking it up but I was wondering hows the story?

I love Star Trek so I can put up with some bugs glitches and dodgy gameplay if its got an entertaining narrative.

Ya no problem buddy !

It takes place between the 2 movies and the story is about new Vulcan begin attacked with a virus and the missions has you jumping from planet to planet and there's some hints about into darkness in the game ....... It's a game for Star Trek "reboot" fans and I was a HUGE fan of the Orginal series and movies ! Didn't care for next generation, deep space or voyager

I thought this would be good due to the developer and the generous timescale. Oh well. Maybe one day Bioware will get given the actual Star Trek IP and be allowed to go all Dragon Age/Mass Effect on it.

In the mean time I will soon be able to play as a Romulan in STO.
