Horrible game DO NOT BUY
This is the worst game I have ever played for xbox 360 or ps3. And at $18 it is a horrible deal! You would honestly be more pleased with justin beibers cooking classes for kinect! (This doesn't exist btw) anyways my point is DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.
I like the game it is better than every one has be saying about it yes the is not up to what some people what the game to be but it is a good game to play and i recommend it to my friends to play and other people to try it out.
It's not so bad- local co op fix.
Ok, I was one of the many who thought the local co-op was broken after the first time. It's not, you have to go to chapters. It will say it deletes all of your previous data...it lies. That's where you can go back to playing multiplayer with your friends/family or whatever. Only thing is, it won't start you EXACTLY where you were, but it will be very close. I know this problem was ruining the game for a lot of people, so I hope this helps, because it's not that bad of a game especially for Trekkies. As far as graphics go, on Spock, Kirk and the rest of the Enterprise crew, they're really good. But if you're looking for Mass Effect, go buy Mass Effect.
It was fun.
If you're just looking to have fun with a game & enjoy playing co-op. I would recommend this game. Good graphics & great voice acting.
My personal opinion.. The trailer was better. It was not challenging at all, Even on Hard mode. The best part of the whole game was its graphics (Give or take a few). The game seemed rush & Too much like Mass Effect without the moral choices & Free-play, It was a straight shot through, Seemed boring from time to time. The Gameplay was too short as well. If the game wasnt a straight-through type of game, & Had exploration, A few choices we could make on our own, It would have received a better rating from me. But each to their own. Also, The Co-op mode... Terrible.
I wasn't so sure if I should buy this game for $60 at first, but I went with my gut and bought it anyway AND I LOVE IT. The story is great and the gameplay is good as well.
Wait until it's patched & and free
Positive: Has the voices of the new Star Trek cast.
Negative: Just about everything else
It is rare that I write a review of anything... positive of negative... but this game is so bad and needs so much work that I am compelled to write.
As much as I want to like this game... the glaring bugs and conscious design choices make that very hard.
While there is a monotony of having to press and hold X at nearly every door I approach (or ladder, or turbo lift, or console) then tap X while the door is forced open... the fact that 9 out of 10 times I step on to a turbolift I DO NOT SEE the "Press X to use" prompt... instead have to run back and forth while looking around to try to get it to display (and be able to proceed).
The only way the achievement titles could be any less creative is if they were titled "Beat Mission One"... as the "Beat <Level Name>" sort we see in the game is only marginally better.
The level design is ok from a purely aesthetic perspective and looks ok for a title this late in the Xbox 360 lifetime (ie ok, not great)... but far too often there is no clear direction as to where one needs to go (such as when Kirk is limping while being assisted by Spock on New Vulcan in a huge room with two levels, staircases, 3 doors and only one of which works. Should I explore? Should I try to find the door I need?)... but when in doubt, try to do a Tomb Raider style wall hang/climb... as that seems to be the major dynamic here.
The 'AI' of both your teammate as well as the enemies reminds me of what I would frequently encounter in FPS games of the late 90's.
The feeling that you just have to have your tricorder out and scan everything (so you don't miss some important aspect of an achievement) seriously takes away from the overall gameplay.
Of course from the start I should have known that this game would be sub-part when during EACH startup of the game, you are presented with the title card/logo of what? 9 different companies who each have some stake in it?
In the end... I got lucky and paid only $40 for this game... even that I contend is $30 to much given the quality of the game. Some things may be able to be fixed via future updates... others I fear are inherent into the game.
really really fun
this game is fun it is really worth it and i would get it again if i lost mine and it is knda hard so yeah i would reccamend this
All aboard The Enterprise
I was really excited to get this game & although I'm not sorry I bought it, it's not as good as I think it could be. I'm not going to say it's hard but it does have a bit of difficulty to it. I'm not talking about a challenge---which most gamers like---but more of like an "annoying, doesn't make sense, how do I get past it" type deal. The co-op could definitely be better too. You can only get so far without having gotten through the game more solo. Overall, it's fun to play but I'd wait for the price to go down before picking it up.
AN EXCELLENT VERY UNDERRATED GAME!
I really disagree with most of the other reviewers. I thought it was GREAT! the graphics overall were very good and it is a really fun co-op experience. it has some replay value too if you want to get all the achievements. i would agree this is a gears of war inspired game but it absolutely has some of its own personality to offer. I would recommend this to the hardcore and casual gamer but kids might get frustrated by some of the jumps and hacks that are required to advance. basically you can play this game two different ways: as a run and gun fast paced shooter or take a metal gear stealth approach. its best the first time you play to go in guns blazing and familiarize yourself with the levels so that on your next playthrough you can get all the stealth commendations and find the hidden tribbles and other research data. this game rewards you by hacking things rather than destroying them by giving you XP for all successful hacks. you can then take your XP into the upgrade screen and get cool enhancements to your phaser and tricorder. it also helps to hack the Gorn turrets and drones to attack the Gorn for you. i really liked how there are almost as many energy recharge stations as their are starbucks coffee shops so you can always keep your favorite weapon without having to replace it with another dropped weapon cuz you ran out of ammo. the only thing that bothered me about this game is they should have had more than just one space battle stage. but maybe they will have some DLC extra missions with KLINGONS!? anyhow THANKS FOR READING! ALL TREK FANS AND SHOOTER BUFFS SHOULD DEFINITELY GIVE THIS A CHANCE! 8.5/10!!
