Star Trek The Video Game is apparently equally as bad to look at and play according to an Xbox.com Forum member who recently played the pile of crap at a public event. The latest Star Trek title is currently being developed by Ontario-based developer Digital Extremes (Bioshock 2, Unreal Tournament, Dark Sector, The Darkness II) with production being overseen by Paramount Pictures.
Star Trek The Video Game’s story is being penned by BAFTA award-winning writer Marianne Krawczyk. It was built from the ground up as the ultimate co-op experience that lets players control both Kirk and Spock in a sweeping journey of epic proportions across unexplored planets and enemy battleships with the latest 23rd century weapons and gear.
However, first initial reactions were bad enough for gamer “hobblejp” to urge everyone reading specifically not to pre-order the game because “Graphics were the level of Walking dead survival instinct” and “The controls were floaty at best”, further pointing out that it seemed like a budget N64 game and basically a film cash-in game.
