First the good - it's got a good soundtrack borrowed from the new film scores. It's set in the Star Trek universe.
Okay that's all I got.
The bad - graphics are appalling for a game developed near the end of the current console generations lifespan. They border on end of the first Xbox's lifespan. Animations are poor and clunky. AI is terrible. I know graphics are not everything but there is nothing underneath to love either. It's like they found a generic shooter template given to beginner developers and whacked the Star Trek name and skins onto it.
I can't bring myself to play anymore of this and I feel bad as it was a gift from my other half who thought she was doing the right thing giving a Star Trek game to her Star Trek obsessed bloke.
All I can say is I thought Aliens: colonial marines was better than this before they improved it with patches and we all know how rubbish that looked and played out the box.
If you want a good Star Trek game, get a pc that can run older games and get Bridge Commander, sarfleet ommand III and either of the elite force games. They look poor by today's standards but at least the developers understood gameplay back then!
But as with every game that spawns from a movie I knew the price would fall shortly after, so I waited. (I'd like to stress that this game is not based on the movies but rather in between the 1st and 2nd of the Star Trek reboot with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto).
When it reached about £10 I went for it, as I could resist it any longer and I was quite impressed.
The graphics overall had a few glitchy moments but were not bad
The sound was truly excellent with all the voice actors from the film participating
The game time was a decent 8 - 12 hours depending on your gameplay style
The gameplay itself was alright, third person with a lot of repetitive code cracking schemes and story problems/objectives
The story was pretty good with some tense moments and classic Star Trek quotes and personality capture well
Finally, if you're buying for the multiplayer I wouldn't bother, its just the story with a friend but glitches out most of the time online, but ok with a friend at your location
The game was very enjoyable to a fan like myself but I think might not appeal to player who want a simple sci-fi shooter game, I'll be playing again but I think for others its a one time play through.
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.
