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.
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.
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.
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!!!!
LAME! LAME! LAME1
I was expecting so much more. Not impressed what-so-ever! They have done a great job with re-inventing the movie series, there should have been more effort put into the game. Feels like I'm playing a game from 15 years ago. Horrible!
Looks pretty awesome!!
I hope this game doesn't disappoint it's been a while since a good Star Trek game been out.For sure I will be pre-ordering this game looks pretty good so far!
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.
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.
This game is not worth $60 dollars and it was way to short.it had to much glitches in it.I would want until the game has a price drop.Save your money.
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.
