Movie games have a history of raising fan hopes with flashy graphics, recognisable environments and convincing voice acting, but a lot of the time they don’t deliver where it matters; in the actual gameplay department.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is the most recent proof of that trend, but sometimes you get licensed games that completely defy expectations. Games like Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Butcher Bay, Bladerunner or the criminally ignored Tron 2.0 and we really, really, really hope Star Trek: The Game falls into this category with its cool third-person shooter gameplay and lens flare-laden visuals.
The latest trailer will tell you all about this co-op experience at length, and in our opinion Digital Extremes’ work is looking rather special.
Look if any game can make shooting giant lizards look cool, then frankly we’re onboard. Controlling the U.S.S Enterprise during a dramatic battle is simply a bonus at that point. If this trailer has won you over to the point that you want to pre-order Star Trek: The Game, be sure to check out the best prices via PreOrder-IQ.com.
Star Trek will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on Friday, 26th April. Please be good, please be good, please be good….
