this game had potential to be in the 8 rating range at the least, however it is full of bugs. played threw as Spock, the computer controlled Kirk kept freezing up or would just disappear. In the final act of the game the Phaser pistol would only fire "blanks" and not affect the enemy in any way. The bugs in the game made it frusterating to play, and hard to enjoy the story

Star Trek's saving grace is the characters, who not only bear the likenesses of the film stars who play them, but have their voices too. Of particular note is Simon Pegg's Scotty, whose thick Scottish accent and penchant for panicking never fail to amuse. There's also some neat back-and-forth between the cold, logical Spock and the charming Kirk as they exchange quips between shots. Kirk even manages a cheeky chat-up line or two along the way.
Still, these are but small wins for a game that never does the license justice; it's a by-the-numbers shooter that just so happens to have the Star Trek name attached to it. Its numerous bugs and linear missions make it frustrating to play, and the story never grabs you like a good sci-fi adventure should. Even the most devoted of Star Trek fans will be hard pressed to find something to like in Star Trek The Video Game: there are simply too many glaring problems.

I would not recommend this game to anyone. The graphic Are great yes, but as far as game play ability it sucks, I don't want to give any spoilers so if you have played any of the other Star Trek Games An liked them by all means try this one you may or may not like this one but I did not an will not give it my approval.
