RadarPlays - Star Trek

Space isn't really the final frontier. It isn't. We know that's what Star Trek says, but, you know, it's a lie. It turns out, the final frontier is playing a Star Trek game. Who knew? Want to find out how we knew that? Watch the video below, wherein we make a bunch of Star Trek jokes and do impressions and stuff. Give it a watch, and then engage in the comments!


Want to hang out with GamesRadar's editors while taking a look at retro games, new releases, and totally random experiences? RadarPlays is for you. Mondays we'll be checking out blasts from the past on RadarPlays Retro, Wednesdays we change things up to whatever we feel like playing with RadarPlays Shuffle, and Friday is packed with the strangest titles you’ve never (hopefully) heard of in RadarPlays Freaky. We'll also release RadarPlays for all the new releases, so be sure to check back!

    I just recently finished playing through this post-patched PC game with a friend and have written a review. We both think the game is underrated and enjoyed our foray into the Star Trek universe. Keep in mind that most of the reviews you encounter about Star Trek: The Video Game were written just after the game was released before the developer had a chance to come up with a patch. So keep that in mind when reading about countless bugs and reviewers saying they were unable to finish the game in co-op mode. If you really like the new Star Trek movies and the main cast then this game is offering you something no other game can. The main cast have lent their likeness and voices to the game.You get to play as either Kirk or Spock and go on an epic mission doing amazing things in the pursuit of reptilian aliens who pose a great threat to the universe! Some of the highlights for me were watching Spock through the scope of my Star Fleet Phaser rifle and picking off the enemies around him as he went to activate a bridge. Swimming through subterranean waterways together. Flying through the air wearing wingsuits and being thrown into an arena initially weaponless and then be forced to fight Spock in hand-to-hand combat! Though there are only several weapons they are pretty cool. Having said all that I can't wholeheartedly recommend the game for two reasons. The first is that it is a polarizing game. Many enjoy it, many don't. The second is because it still has bugs though they didn't end up spoiling the game for my friend and I. Below are two of the bigger ones.. * In the first encounter with the Gorn if Kirk was the first one to go up the ladder the player will suddenly find himself at the bottom of the ladder looking up and unable to play and Spock fights the Gorn alone. If Spock goes up the ladder first the game continues on normally. * We found that if you go through three checkpoints on the Gorn mothership toward the end of the game and resume play on another day the game takes you back to the start of the mothership incursion completely ignoring those completed checkpoints. So give yourself a leisurely two hours to complete this part of the mission in one go. If you are an easy-going, fairly uncritical gamer that doesn't mind playing linear games and you like Star Trek consider trying it out. It's only $14.99 at Steam at the moment.

    Considering it's been out since yesterday, why aren't there any reviews out?

    This looks... incredibly mediocre, and that's from someone who actively plays STO (so I know mediocre Star Trek games)

    it seems the single player has a high chance for annoyance/frustration. looks boring as hell, too, but a tutorial is hardly fair game as far as judgment is concerned.

    I got my copy from Amazon today and I'm really enjoying it, I was worried it was gonna suck but it's turning out to be my favorite Star Trek game

    considering the 'turd to gold' ratio for star trek games, the bar must not be set that high. unless you were a pc gamer at the turn of the century, i suppose.
