GDC: Digital Extremes' Star Trek isn't looking too hot photo
GDC: Digital Extremes' Star Trek isn't looking too hot
by Abel Girmay

Take a beloved franchise like Star Trek, influences from the heavier hitters in a genre, and you can't go too wrong, right? Well that final verdict of course remains to be seen, but I can't say Digital Extremes' Star Trek makes a good case for itself.

The Star Trek film tie-in game is still a thing

gamescom: This Star Trek trailer reintroduces the Gorn

While it had been previously announced that the Gorn would be what Spock and Kirk get to shoot at in Digital Extremes' Star Trek, this isn't what I was expecting. Can you blame me? This game, due out early next year, picks u...

E3: Star Trek hands-off event was NOT like Disney World

It's kind of unfair to compare Star Trek to Star Wars 1313, and I know I'm only furthering the Star Wars vs. Star Trek rivalry, but there's no way I could not think about my hands-off LucasArts session. Whereas the Star Wars ...

Preview: Star Trek is shaping up to be something special
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The stigma of bad videogame tie-ins with movie franchises is very hard to overcome. Often rushed to coincide with the corresponding film's release, movie based games almost always suck. So you'll have to forgive me for initially ignoring everything related to Digital Extremes' Star Trek, set to take place between the fantastic 2009 film and upcoming sequel.

Namco Bandai showed off the latest at a recent press event and I honestly have to say I was a little blown away. The game is looking pretty great in the visuals and it actually looks like it could be a fun third-person shooter experience.
