live long... and prosper.  i think 
 
Edit - so, Mass Effect?

#3 Posted by snide (2413 posts) -

Pretty pumped for this.

#4 Edited by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -

I'd rather take a Mass Effect clone with Picard, Janeway and the other characters I grew up watching. So much potential for a large sci-fi game going to waste... Then again, there's Mass Effect. :)

Though it does look kind of awesome, I'll have to give them that.

am i the only one who cant really take Star Trek weapons seriusly? LAZER PEW PEW!!!!

A few parts there looked like Dead Space. When I think what I want in a Star Trek  game I immediately think third person shooter.

#7 Posted by monopolyloser (17 posts) -

this could be cool. i hope it doesn't end up being another generic 3rd person shooter.

Very nice post-fx treatments.  It's got the rhythm of a Mass Effect-style rpg/shooter; I hope it can further that story-telling style as well.

The soundeffects in the movie are awesome, these not so much. Now don't get me started on Star Wars guns.

And now here is the third person cover based co-op shooter that no one wants. 
 
I better be able to dick some green alien chicks in this game.  
 
 
Edit: OMG i posted that before I saw the trailer.  Seriously?  That is what they are going with?

Never cared much for Star Trek (sorry fans), I'm sure some people will enjoy this game. Not me.

#12 Posted by HarlequinRiot (1098 posts) -

Looks surprsingly good.

Not really what I want out of a Star Trek game, but hey, as long as it turns out alright sign me up. I'll take what I can get.

Trailer looks very Mass Effect'y, if they have some RPG and talking in there too I might be interesting. Looked definitively a lot more interesting then I would have expected from a modern Star Trek game.

#15 Posted by Zippedbinders (1034 posts) -

It looks very action heavy, but like I said before, the ability to have Spock logic a way out of a scenario or Kirk bone his way into one could make this pretty awesome.

is this going to be linked in to a future movie ?

do not like new spock

The best parts of Mass Effect are the setting and the conversations. Similarly, Star Trek's strengths have never been its action but its characters and ideas.

Reducing Star Trek to a third-personal shooter just seems contradictory and doomed to failure.

#19 Posted by zoozilla (984 posts) -

I was hoping it would be more like this.
 
Why did that game never come out!?

#20 Posted by TorMasturba (1089 posts) -

Hope springs eternal... That's all.

There's been a couple of Star Trek FPS games that were quite good. Perhaps not the best match, but the co-op dynamic between Kirk and Spock should at least work well.. and the new movie was pretty much all action anyway.

So pre-order DLC will be Shatner/Nimoy skins right?

#23 Posted by Ceno (117 posts) -

I'm on board. They're showing off the crazy action stuff to emphasize the production values, but have said the gameplay is varied in the way Trek fans would expect. Besides, it's Trek. I'll take whatever game I can get (except Online).

Nice though want to play as Scotty.

#25 Edited by emem (1974 posts) -

Really looks a bit like they are trying to go the Mass Effect way, but I don't think that's a bad thing.

Looking forward to it.

Set phasers to ... skeptical.

#27 Posted by alexhigh (35 posts) -

To be honest a better game would be you playing a rogue-ish character within the star trek universe, those guys always seem to have a lot more fun than the good guys of starfleet. 
 
Mind you that wouldn't help them sell their next film very well.

Finally a Star Trek mod for Mass Effect... though four years too late.

Star Effect or Mass Trek?

Too hard to decide.

#30 Posted by sixpin (1309 posts) -

Oh please be good. A good Star Trek game would make my 9 year-old self very happy.

#32 Posted by ProjektGill (753 posts) -

There was a part in there that reminded me of Dead Space 2.

Where is all the diplomacy and exploration.

#35 Posted by Xpgamer7 (2398 posts) -

Be fair, friend, Mass Effect was trying so hard to be Star Trek that I'm surprised Leonard Nimoy didn't make a cameo.

I hope it's less Gears of War and more Mass Effect.
