TV and game buffs will be excited to hear about the latest revelation from E3, Star Trek should be released onto our consoles in 2012 as revealed at the Sony press conference, they also gave us a sneak peek into the game with a great trailer (shown below) which used all in-game footage of pre-alpha material.
Many people have commented on the game by saying that it looks remarkably similar to Mass Effect because of the environments and the graphics, this is by no means a bad thing and if the developers mix this with a fresh story line and solid gameplay they could be on to a real winner.
Some people on VG247’s page feel that it does not feel like the old Star Trek that people loved on TV, instead as another post points out, it is based on the latest film that was released and not on the older films and TV series. Another interesting point noted on VG247 was that they clearly state that “Exclusive content destined for Sony’s console”, finally the PS3 is getting the priority treatment the over other platforms.
The game will be released for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC and should be a hit with both fans of games like Mass Effect and huge fans of Star Trek. Will it be a success though do you think? We have seen Star Wars games become successful so will this be the beginning of a great series of games to come?
