You play as Kirk or Spock (with the ability to go online and play co-op) in a mission that takes on the Gorn, a warlike lizard race. You must visit several planets and space stations shooting repetitive bad guys and doing the same types of puzzle over and over again. If this is not fun enough, how about having to partake of some truly awful platform elements once in a while. Who does not enjoy being unable to figure out the camera angles and plunging Kirk to his death once again?
`Star Trek' is pretty awful. The graphics are just about acceptable and possibly the best element is the main star's reprising their roles in voice form. The problems with the game are level design and gameplay based. The levels feel empty and boring. You also feel like you are going down similar corridors and shooting yet more similar enemies. Repetition is rife in games and some better experiences get away with it by having compelling gameplay, but `Star Trek' does not. The controls feel very clunky and the shooting is just not fun. Only the co-op makes it worth a look at, as playing with a pal is always a little fun at least.
I went in with an open mind, despite having read many not-so-great reviews.
I am a fan of the recent 'Star Trek' reboot, and thought this game would be fun to play - and it was... in the beginning.
The game itself just feels very... dated. The graphics are okay and it's great to have the movie's cast involved. However, I found myself getting stuck on various levels - not because I couldn't figure out what to do or where to go, but because the character I was playing simply couldn't perform!
For example; in one scenario, you're in a shuttle bay and you have to jump over a broken walkway. Despite trying to jump this gap numerous, *numerous* times, my character always fell to his death! He just wouldn't (or couldn't) jump far enough.
I read numerous walkthrough's and guides - and all noted that jumping over this gap was the correct way to go to complete the level. But it was as if a glitch in the game meant that the character constantly failed to make it.
At that point, which I'm guessing was about 40% into the game, I simply gave up and I haven't played it since. It was just the final straw after numerous issues.
I really wish this game had delivered, as the source material is pure gold. However, it feels rushed and in turn, is a real let down.
For a full rundown on the scam that Paramount have done go to utoob and look for Star Trek Angry Joe's rant.
Annoying when you have to pair up with a AI.
Annoying bugs with bar/wall climbing.
Love Star trek so this was a slight disappointment after a long wait for what should of been an excellent game.
Graphics are good. And it is visually pleasing. Fix the bugs and it will be much better.
The engine of the game seems made in the 80's, heck even Doom has better engine.
Trying to fight the first big monster was a pain and probably what made me quit the game (bought 2, the other copy to play with my friend, who hated it too).
But I wanted to go into a little bit more detail related to the game play itself. The rating I've given it should give you a pretty good idea about my thoughts, but the most shocking thing for me is that even as a BIG Star Trek fan (ok, I don't dress up and go to conventions, nor do I speak Klingon), I was sorely disappointed.
The first movie reboot was fantastic, and many positives have been heard about the impending sequel. This makes it even more difficult to understand why `they' would damage the reputation of the franchise with this pile of rubbish.
Some basics: The voice acting is provided by the cast of the recent movies. So this is a huge plus for the game. The negative is that whereas in the movie(s), the interaction (for example) between Spock and Kirk adds humour and relief from tense space battles and alien attacks, the interaction in the game seem numb and boring. You don't once get the urge to laugh. This is a shame.
Graphically the game is average at best. A lot of bland corridors/caverns/ships. It can actually be hard to determine what your next course of action is due to the fact that if you lose your bearings, all doors/caves look identical so you're not sure where you came from and where you're meant to be going. With the exception of the crew of the Enterprise, the rest of the characters are bland and have little by way of differentiating features.
The space battles are `ok' at best. Graphically this is probably the highlight, but the game almost plays itself in these scenes so it's not exactly nail biting stuff.Read more ›

I love Star Trek. I read the mediocre reviews for this game but decided to give it a go, anyway.
My immediate impression was that the game was very old. Read more
It's just like most other Star Trek games, silly running around, shooting, solving little puzzles.
I recommend ya play this with another person as 1 player is annoying.
