Not great, not taxing but find of fun, I enjoyed it.
Coming off a binge of PS1 era Tomb Raider its just so nice playing something where you aren't dying, literally, every 3 minutes and its nice the fact they actually originated an original story for the game, not try to piggy-back it off whatever ongoing movie release - plus the vocal cast features the current cast, some of the dialogue is rather snappy - there's a nice line where Kirk comments how he like a female character and Spock retorts: "There are females you don't like?" - its cheesy and doesn't take itself terribly seriously.
First the good - it's got a good soundtrack borrowed from the new film scores. It's set in the Star Trek universe.
Okay that's all I got.
The bad - graphics are appalling for a game developed near the end of the current console generations lifespan. They border on end of the first Xbox's lifespan. Animations are poor and clunky. AI is terrible. I know graphics are not everything but there is nothing underneath to love either. It's like they found a generic shooter template given to beginner developers and whacked the Star Trek name and skins onto it.
I can't bring myself to play anymore of this and I feel bad as it was a gift from my other half who thought she was doing the right thing giving a Star Trek game to her Star Trek obsessed bloke.
All I can say is I thought Aliens: colonial marines was better than this before they improved it with patches and we all know how rubbish that looked and played out the box.
If you want a good Star Trek game, get a pc that can run older games and get Bridge Commander, sarfleet ommand III and either of the elite force games. They look poor by today's standards but at least the developers understood gameplay back then!
However, I'm a massive Star Trek fan and when I saw it again last year for a couple of quid I thought why not.
I'm glad I took the chance. OK it has glitches here and their but nothing that gets in the way of the fun, just persevere and it is a tremendously enjoyable game.
Also from a Trek fan point of view IT'S CANNON!
But as with every game that spawns from a movie I knew the price would fall shortly after, so I waited. (I'd like to stress that this game is not based on the movies but rather in between the 1st and 2nd of the Star Trek reboot with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto).
When it reached about £10 I went for it, as I could resist it any longer and I was quite impressed.
The graphics overall had a few glitchy moments but were not bad
The sound was truly excellent with all the voice actors from the film participating
The game time was a decent 8 - 12 hours depending on your gameplay style
The gameplay itself was alright, third person with a lot of repetitive code cracking schemes and story problems/objectives
The story was pretty good with some tense moments and classic Star Trek quotes and personality capture well
Finally, if you're buying for the multiplayer I wouldn't bother, its just the story with a friend but glitches out most of the time online, but ok with a friend at your location
The game was very enjoyable to a fan like myself but I think might not appeal to player who want a simple sci-fi shooter game, I'll be playing again but I think for others its a one time play through.
Firstly I'll say, I've not finished the game yet (for various reasons), so I cannot say whether the game redeems itself towards the end. Maybe it will. But so far, I've been disappointed. The splitscreen gaming is difficult, and could have been handled much better, perhaps even getting rid of the splitscreen all together - I'm not a game designer, so I don't know. But what I do know is that the experience hasn't been as exciting as I originally thought it would be.
The game itself is probably 70% video clips, 30% actual gaming. You could play for 5 minutes, then there's another video clip. 2 minutes gaming, another video clip. Why are there so many??? Let me play the game?!! I also feel that in some of the video clips, the voice acting is a little awkward, but perhaps the actors are just better on screen. That's just my opinion though.
But don't let me put you off, there are some great aspects of the game, such as the full body view of the characters (no first person) which I wasn't expecting with this game, a good range of weapons, and even the plot is pretty good. I just think it could have been executed so much better, and if they'd put more time into it, the graphics would be a lot better as well (yeah, I was disappointed with the quality). I also liked the teamwork aspect of the game, when one person had to do one job, and the other had to do another job in order to progress further.
All in all, the plot line is good, the teamwork is fun, but I am disappointed at how poorly this game has been executed, low quality graphics and poor splitscreen coverage being a main source of my discontent.
I would recommend this game to younger Star Trek reboot fans.
