Star Trek: The Video Game
Resembles the film.
The faces look good.
Entertaining Kirk/Spock banter.
Co-op is always fun.
Bland, generic gunplay.
Lots of bugs.
Incredibly poor artificial intelligence.

After years of being burned by crap film tie-ins I didn’t have much hope for Star Trek, but this failed to live up to even my lowest expectations.45

I don’t know what it is about the Star Trek license that makes it hard to develop great games based on it. Maybe it’s the non-violence, the talking-first attitude, the ability to go where no one has gone before? None of which incidentally...50

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.35

Star Trek The Video Game is a mess of bugs, glitches, and thoroughly uninspiring...35

Star Trek makes some attempts to be lively in the writing and acting department, but in every other regard it's deeply boring, incredibly stupid, ugly and senseless. Avoid.40

There isn't a scrap of imagination or originality in this whole thing, and it's a flat-out waste of the source material, the sound effects, and the voice cast. Even if you're a life-long Star Trek fan like I am, you don't want to beam down anywhere near this thing.42

When the music soars, the characters align and the combat gels, Star Trek becomes a rare movie game that rises above its peers and delivers something genuinely fun. It's only ever a partial success though, too bogged down by timid design and technical rough edges to really be the game that Trek deserves.60

No matter what you think of the new movies no franchise deserves a tie-in as timidly generic as this, with painfully bland action and low-tech, not sci-fi, presentation.30

The only distinctive selling point of this game – the promise of an epic buddy co-op experience between two famous sci-fi pals - succumbs to awkward banter and gimmicky co-op puzzles. Star Trek asks you to traverse a vast galaxy, but when the credits roll, you’ll wonder why you bothered when there was so little to discover along the way.40

Generic shooting, incredibly poor artificial intelligence and glitchy bug-ridden gameplay amounts to nothing more than a meager attempt to cash in on next month’s film. We salute you for trying, but this is better left untouched and propelled into space.30
