Re: The new Star Trek game is highly underrated

DS9: The Fallen is pretty under-rated too IMO. I never completed it with anyone other than Kira, keep meaning to go back to it one of these days and try to ace it with Worf and Sisko...

One of the fun parts is wearing the Kelvin uniforms and using the Kelvin phaser pistols. Sweeet!

Here's my review of the game. The short version is they wasted an opportunity to make something as awesome as Mass Effect. The game is pretty good despite this, though.

What makes Mass Effect awesome (in my book) are the party interactions, the (relative) freedom of character, and the galaxy-shaking consequences.

Party interactions they could have done. But not so much the freedom of character, nor the galaxy-shaking consequences (or at least, not without stepping on the movies' toes).

Something awesome like Mass Effect would've been nice, but I just don't think it's possible with a stringent license like this, where all the toys need to be back in the pram at the end.

Not necessarily, you could have done much of what was done in Mass Effect with the existing characters. Talk to Sulu, Checov, Uhura, and so on about their respective pasts and give them missions. This is, however, a much more linear game than Mass Effect, though. Linear doesn't necessarily mean bad, though.

I will say, ME is about what I want from Star Trek. It's also, amusingly, pretty close to JJ Abrams movies with better plotting.

Re: The new Star Trek game is highly underrated

Eh, it's an OK game. I'm enjoying it well enough, but there's nothing about it that's really drawing me into it. I've been too busy to play any games in a couple weeks, and even though I'm only about a quarter of the way through 'Star Trek', there are four or five games that I've been really antsy to get back into a lot more than this one.

It's pretty cool to have the entire cast voicing their characters.
