Movie tie-ins are widely considered a bane among gamers. But with interest in a movie being enough to swindle some less-informed individuals into buying one of these apparent cash-ins, they just seem to keep coming. However — occasionally — something rather surprising happens. A tie-in game is given to a development team with some sort of merit to their name, and is given the triple-A treatment with up-to-date graphics and gameplay tight as can be. While many doubted, I silently thought Star Trek would end up like one of these highly successful tie-ins. While developer Digital Extremes may not be as widely renowned as some, The Darkness II was proof that they could put together a entirely enjoyable shooter that even includes a decent narrative. With Star Trek, something must have gone horrible awry.
