I thought the nuTrek phasers pretty much were the same as those in WoK, only with a fuckton of banks firing at once instead of just one or two (and that brings me to - why on Earth didn't the Reliant and Enterprise fire all-out at each other in the same way the Enterprise-D did at the Borg or the Enterprise did at the Narada in the '09 movie?)
Well, Khan was holding back at the beginning of WOK. Then afterwards we could argue that either the technology or the damage kept them from doing so.
Also for pacing and suspense reasons, I prefer the usage in WOK. I just think it works better than ST:ID's "BLIPBLIPBLIPBLIP"
Not a dealbreaker though.
