JJ Abrams hated the most recent Star Trek game

He felt it may have even hurt the movie

The videogame tie-in for Star Trek Into Darkness was pretty poorly received, and JJ Abrams, the movie's director, is bummed out about it. Well, not about the critical reception; he's in agreement there. He's disappointed in how hard the game actually did suck.

In an interview at the movie's DVD launch event, Abrams expressed his initial high hopes for the project, along with his eventual dissatisfaction. "To me, the videogame could have been something that actually really benefited the series," Abrams stated. "It was something that we were actually involved in at the very beginning, and then we realized that it was not going in a place where we wanted, so we dropped out," he revealed.

"It was something that, I think for me, emotionally it hurt, because we were working our asses off making the movie, and then this game came out and it got universally panned." Abrams even went so far as to say the game "was something that without question didn't help the movie, and arguably hurt it."
