I read somewhere that it took over a year to make this game and that it would be better than most games that come from movies. Well they were right it is better than your typical movie to game experience but man ol man is there some major flaws in this game. I guess they should have spent over two years making it.
First off this is an original story so its not exactly based upon a movie other than it has the same actors and voices of the actors. Where this game fails is the controls and the glitches. It is not a smooth game, you will find yourself getting frustrated about how you have to get at certain angles to accomplish goals and find yourself even more frustrated when no matter what you do you cant seem to find the correct button to push to get you thru a door I eventually commanded spock to open the door and it worked. The movement of the character isnt bad but it's nothing compared to the great games out there Uncharted, COD, Tomb Raider.
The good things are that the story is'nt bad and the graphics are pretty good. I also thought it had a good mix of shooter and exploration.
All in all I think the bad out ways the good but if you like Star Trek give it a shot.
This game could have been great had it just gotten a bit more polish. The music is good enough, and the voice acting (done by the movies cast) is pretty strong. The graphics aren't quite as pretty as I had hoped, and the controls are sluggish at best. Climbing over objects and taking cover are things that games have been pulling off well for several years now, yet Star Trek makes it feel like a new feature that hasn't yet been perfected. It's cool that you can play it online with a buddy, or even go couch co-op (a feature that more games should employ), but it's just not enough to save Star Trek from falling flat.
