Rated 8 out of 10 by maverick4444 This is not Mass Effect
The same phrase was said many times over the last couple of weeks that this game looked and played similar to Mass Effect. If you are looking for a sweeping arc of love, loss, and tragedy that will be remembered for the ages then look somewhere else. If you enjoy the campiness of the Star Trek universe and are looking to have fun playing as Kirk or Spock as you roll, shoot and explore the environments. The targeting system could use some help. The phasers and other weapons look and sound good. I wish that there were more things to upgrade. You can upgrade the Tricorder and the Phaser but that is all. There is fun to be had with the banter and the good story. Play through with a friend for some extra fun. Are there issues? Sure. Aside from aiming and some camera problems, there was one particular point where Spock and I were supposed to be sneaking through an area and Spock was "hiding" in the open. The enemies never saw him. All in all, a fun time that might be best served with friends.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BDogJake One of the best games EVER!!!!!!!!
I have to say I am in no way a Star Trek fan but this game alone makes me one! I have to say I LOVE THIS GAME!! Best co- op I've seen yet. I have to say the developers are geniuses. Out of my large collection of games this probably one of my 3 favorite. THIS game is great co- op but great single player. Great story great graphics great controls. Some reviews stated they didn't like the enemies but I loved them and if any games worth $60 its this. I'll never regret buying this game. I already know I will play the story many many many times. I'd say you would have to be nuts to not like this game. Great game for all !!!!!!!!!!!! No games perfect but this is close!!!!
Rated 7 out of 10 Trek fan fun
This game is great for trek fans. The game really reminds me of Ghostbusters video game. Same linear gameplay with scanning for collectables side quests. Same graphics, trying to look real but not quite there. Same stiff controls that don't seem to work when you really need them to in a bind. Yet has a great story and is actually pretty long like GB. Both have the original voice actors. I'm a Trekkie so I really enjoyed this game. I would prefer a Star Trek game RPG a bit like mass effect but this action game is a lot of fun. So if you like sci fi, are a Trekkie, and you thought Ghostbusters was a good game than you will like this.
Rated 8 out of 10 by 56ateam Star Trek comes back!!
I pre ordered this game in December of last year finally I get to play it. If you think it is a Game just called Star Trek you have another thing coming. In this action pack Star Trek game, they introduce a never made a Star Trek game like this besides Star Trek online. Some of the missions take time but are really worth the time. You can upgrade the weapons an the tricorder. Kirk can call air strikes from the enterprise you can be the enterprise you can walk around the enterprise and you can be Spock he can mind meld and the Vulcan neck pinch. There is much more cool things you can do but this is truly a real Star Trek adventure.
Rated 9 out of 10 by CJROX good overall
I thought this game was good overall. There were a few glitches that made me have to reload to last checkpoint but is saves checkpoints so often It didn't matter. The graphics were pretty good and the story was well written. The whole levels were long and there is limited customization options, but there is a wide variety of weapons and little things to find and collect. So overall don't listen to those who say it sucked they are focusing on the problems with the game. IT IS A REALLY FUN GAME.
Rated 0 out of 10 by SDKiNgZ13 I hope it meets every ones expectations....
I love Star Trek, i watched every blockbuster movie, and the last movie was by far the a little in between of the worst Star Trek ever made and the best one ever made. I hope the game won't disappoint me as much as when Spock kissed A'whora in the previous movie, but yet it again that was Hollywood doing its work in this generation. I hope the videogame says otherwise, because they are a lot of Star Trek fans who would have killed for a HD Star Trek videogame such as this one.
Rated 10 out of 10 by amshockeyfan An accurate & fun experience
I'm over 3/4 through my first play-through & I'm enjoying every minute of it. The Gorn as the antagonists is a welcome escape from the Romulans, Klingons, Borg & Dominion, as we only saw the Gorn once in the TOS episode "Arena". I have yet to play the game in 3D, but on my next play-through I'll try it. The mini-games/puzzles add a little bit of novelty to the gameplay.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ddog987 Better than Mass Effect
Cannot believe how incredible this game is. I haven't experienced any video game like it. It has gone where no one has gone before. The graphics are incredible and cutting edge. The shooting experience is amazing. The story is original. The game is long. And it is more thAn fun with two people. People who have played fps games with master this masterpiece of a video game
Rated 8 out of 10 by bam76 Decent
Not a bad game. Nice to see a good Star Trek game out now but would have been a little better if it were Romulan or Klingon enemies. I know the Into Darkness has the Kingons and the Romulans were in the first movie but this will work. It plays more like a PC game. Time will tell how long it will last up. Needs to have a MMO type battle field to keep you into the game long after the Campain is finished.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ddog987 If you know Star Trek, you know this game
Believe it or not i am a die hard star trek fan, the gorn are the main badguy in this game, true fans will know that they are from a 60's episode called "Arena"
The game itself is incredible, forget all those who say it is short, my cousin and i are video game masters and trek fans and the introduction took us 24 minuets, it is an amazing game and the online is so realistic
