This game was plenty fun. A lot of action, cool cut scenes, good music score, and the idle banter between Kirk and Spock was entertaining. I am a fan of this movie series, but by no means a trekkie. It's foundation is shooter, but it is nice the way the game mixes in a little platforming, flight (character w/ suits), a cool space battle, puzzles. The story and gameplay flow nicely. Character models are dead on too.
Don't be fooled by ratings suggesting that this game is "unplayable". It has it's glitches with character movement for sure. At the worst, they can be distracting, but they resolve themselves and the action continues.
recommend for any gamer especially ones that find Star Trek even just remotely interesting.

First off, I know this game has gotten horrendous reviews mostly. While playing, I could see maybe why some of them hated the game, the game is a tad glitchy at times (I had to restart checkpoint several times). Also, most were hoping for some space battles (there is only one in the game) so that was also an issue. But I'm not really here to talk about the negatives I want to talk about the positives. I gave this game a 6 based on my overall experience and time with the game. Yes, I am a Star Trek fan as well.
#1: Great voice acting from everyone around to Pine, Quinto, Urban, Pegg the lot of them.
#2- Decent storyline featuring The Gorn's return to Star Trek as the villains. Basically you either take control of Kirk or Spock and battle them throughout the game, while also completing certain objectives.
#3- Fast paced and never a dull moment, the game just continues with havoc from start to finish so it never feels boring or tiresome. Every cut scene is related to another event that is getting ready to happen immediately after that scene. Great build up.
#4- Simple easy gameplay especially if you like TPS (Third person shooters) sometimes can be a little sensitive when moving around corners and stuff but otherwise good gameplay.
#5- Great character models... I see a lot of complaints from people saying that the graphics felt dated. To me, I looked at is they gave the crew great detail everyone from Kirk to Spock to Scotty, Bones & Sulu all had great models. So for me the graphics didn't bother me at all.
So in all honesty if your looking to kill some time and if your a fan of Star Trek then you should play at least one time through. It's not perfect it's not fantastic but it is good. Look through some of the small glitches and lack of space battles and just have a good time like me.
