Re: Official New Star Trek 2012 Game for the PC, PS3 & X360

I'm playing it on XBOX 360, and I am underwhelmed. Yes, it's a movie tie-in, I know, and I wasn't expecting the game of the year or anything, but with the work that we were told went into this, I at least hoped the writing and storyline would be better than it is. The one high point for me is the score - really like the updated "epic movie" music, but still hear references to some Original Series moments. I think the graphics look like they belong in a game from a few years ago. Someone else somewhere called the controls "janky", and I don't disagree. Lots of buggys all the way around.

Trying to suck it up and finish it, but I am not sure I have it in me. I'm a Trekker, true blue, and a big fan of the '09 movie and the new universe...this one's just not doing the trick. They can't all be winners, I get that, but this one may be getting a trip to Gamestop/eBay/Craigslist more sooner than later.
