I have to say, as a huge fan of the franchise, I so wanted to love this game. Initial promo shots and trailers looked extremely impressive, and gave rise to the hope that finally a decent trek game had arrived on a console.
Unfortunately, the game is far less impressive upon playing. It's simply a second rate shooter with the occasional minor puzzle that has had a couple of key figures from the new film series roped in, along with other members of the crew providing the occasional voice-over.
The game itself is stilted and very glitchy, the gameplay repetitive and, to be honest, very quickly becomes boring.
I can only say that amongst a raft of great titles released around the same time such as the phenomenal Tomb Raider and God of War Ascension, Star Trek (and it kills me to type this) fails utterly, and is an incredibley underwhelming gaming experience. I find myself about halfway through the game, and wondering if it's actually worth finishing.
Gutted and severely disappointed. The 2 stars are mostly out of loyalty as a trek fan, but in honesty, to my mind it barely deserves one.
