Stunning!

I waited a long time for a decent Star Trek game, sadly the last few years game was very weak. But Star Trek The Game was a pleasant surprise! I don't know why the bad reviews and angry fans, this game not that bad. It's better then ACM for sure. Let's see why. We got the whole cast of the new movies, not just Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. We got a nice score from Michael Giacchino. We got nice graphics and models from the characters we know, great sound effects. We can use the phaser stun mode, I can count on my hand how many Trek games allow this. We can use the tricorder for multiple puzzles, doors, consoles or just for scans. We not just can use the tricorder, we must. We can play as Kirk or Spock, playing as another character slightly differs from each other in style and certain lines and scenes in the game. But yes, the game has some bug. However I'm not encounter any serious bug, I say Crysis has more. The partner AI sometimes stuck or not helping well, but this not happens often. I can tell much about the co-op, since I only played offline. The game using Digital Extremes's ow engine the Evolution Engine - Warframe use the same engine - which looks stunning, but also runs very smooth. We feel the movie vivid colors and it's blinding lens flares. Everything looks pretty and clear, like in the movies. The characters are well designed and lifelike. We can visit the Enterprise seen or not yet seen locations too. All are detailed in every aspect. The sound is great, especially with a 5.1 system the score and effects has a perfect bound and mix.

If you a Star Trek fan this game is a must have! It's almost good as the old Elite Force games. Has many achievements, collectibles and upgrades to playthrough multiple times.

Star Trek - review

For the duration of the adventure will be accompanied or Kirk or Spock, depending on who we have chosen to impersonate at the beginning of the game. The two, however, do not differ greatly and even their customization options are identical, so the choice is given by the purely aesthetic preference or by our degree of affection for the character. The game relies heavily on cooperation, and wanting can play with a friend online. In terms of gameplay, however, Star Trek itself as a classic third-person shooter with cover "to Gears Of War". Star Trek is a mediocre game, trying to mix so many genres and ideas but fails to excel in any field. The disastrous technical component and the presence of numerous bugs, graphic glitches and poor artificial intelligence make the experience very frustrating, and the only reasons why you may want to proceed to the end of the adventure can be curiosity about the plot or because you are a die-hard fan of the series, and only be able to impersonate Kirk or Spock and hear their original voices.

Great Game!

A wonderful Trek game. It gives you the sense of actually being in a tie-in movie, and sports the banter of the original series characters. The gameplay is fun and very similar to how it plays out in the 2009 movie, and the whole game is executed in the same way. For those looking for a more "Original Trek" feeling, you can try to take on the Commendation objectives, which are more challenging and rewarding, and require you to take care of objectives more diplomatically. The graphics hold up even under close scrutiny and fast paced action, though require a stronger system than average. They may not be groundbreaking, but they are definitely up to date and good looking. The multi player adds a layer of fun as well, and promotes a lot of teamwork. The majority of complaints about the game happen to be centered on the fact that AS SOON as the game came out, there was a Steam server problem. The error was corrected within three days, but that didn't stop anyone from coming here to write awful reviews, in an attempt to make the developers fix it faster (even though it wasn't completely the developers fault). The outrageous reviews have given it a bad name, when it is a thoroughly enjoyable game. I was part of a forum where I saw the members decide to make several accounts here, just to talk bad about the game, in their attempts to get the developers to fix the multi player servers faster. It has forever stained the review score here and was unnecessary. In the end the multi player was quickly fixed and the game is great. Star Trek fan? Buy it!

A classic!

DanielZo0 | June 11, 2013 | See all DanielZo0's reviews »

Incredible for fans of ST and of all Sci-fi. Difference of space combat vs ground is nice. PvP, PvE, etc. all welcome. However, Cryptic must devote some amount of time continuing to develop this title as it does suffer from some shallow aspects and some general bugs and unfinished areas. That said, as a fan of the series and of sci-fi MMOs in general, this is a genre that is sorely needed with the glut of WoW and DnD clones perpetually on the market. As it stands, I give it an 8 for a classic theme, sci-fi bent of RPG, and quality of play and variety. If cryptic fully supports this game and continues to release content and upgrades, it could definitely move into the 10 range for me. I will be playing and hanging around to see if that happens.

Very disappointing

MauroR | May 8, 2013 | See all MauroR's reviews »

When I see a game based on a movie/TV series I have a strange sensation. Let's face it. Most of these game based on a famous movie/TV series franchise were all, at very best mediocre and bad executed, except really few ones (Golden Eye for the N64, the first Chronicles of Riddick, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic and few more) and this new Star Trek game is not an exception. This game has bugs to sell, you AI companion (Spock) get stuck in every situation making this game almost unplayable and frustrating, in short another good idea poorly executed, reminds me of Aliens Colonial Marines. I give it a 50 score just just to be generous, but in truth it deserve less than that. I don't understand, you spend millions to get the rights to use a famous TV series like Star Trek and then you end up delivering a buggy and unfinished product like this one? Using a famous TV series it's not enough to make the game great, it takes much more than that.
