Summary: Boldly, no. As a life-long Star Trek fan, I was skeptical about the reboot. However, my worries were unfounded as the 2009 film quickly became one of my favorites in the series, and it's attention to what came before while paving a new pathway for these familiar characters was a welcome change.
Excerpt: In 2009, J.J. Abrams rebooted Star Trek , effectively recasted an iconic crew and revitalized the franchise. It went more towards an action sci-fi film with Chris Pine as a young, handsome Kirk (yet Han Solo-esque) that you could build a new movie franchise around.
Conclusion: If you’re a Star Trek fan on a buzz from Star Trek Into Darkness and are both very forgiving and after a mostly competent but not as good Uncharted clone, and most importantly have a friend who is exactly the same, then you’ll probably be content picking up and playing Star Trek: The Videogame for...
Summary: The Star Trek reboot might be working out well in terms of the movies, but the video game is a complete mess. At best a bland shooter, the game is plagued by poor design, glitches, bugs, and other issues.
Summary: Short Attention Span Summary: Walking around with your tricorder out scanning things just felt right, and I wish the game had enabled you to use it more to escape by using science instead of your phaser.
Conclusion: Star Trek is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Animated Blood, Violence, and Language. I didn’t see any of the red stuff at all while playing, and most of the time you just zap enemies with your phaser.
