New Star Trek Video Game Trailer Is A Total Shoot-Em Up
Remember when Star Trek was a thoughtful science fiction series about the future of humanity and the importance of exploration? Those days are long gone both in the movies and apparently in video games.
Now Star Trek is a shoot-em up pretty much like everything else, and the latest trailer for the new Star Trek video game reflects that. Take a look…
Turning into a full on action franchise isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I miss the thought-provoking nature of what Trek was but all this running around and shooting stuff is a lot of fun. And in the video game universe in particular, Trek could really use a shot in the arm. A lot of people have been heralding Mass Effect 3 as the new Trek, accomplishing all the complex universe creation that Trek used to do so well while also making it easy to shoot things.
Maybe this new Star Trek game is the answer to the Mass Effect challenge. Right now the only Trek presence in the gaming world is Star Trek: Online. That MMORPG is still going strong and completely worth your time, but it doesn’t really reach out to console gamers who just want to shoot stuff. This clearly does.
