Quoted from gweempose:
but I also think CrazyLevi was correct when he stated that Star Trek games have never gotten the love they deserve because of the theme
I still consider the problem with Star Trek to be the release software of the game. I went in with such high expectations, 18 missions, wizard modes, the whole lot of things Stern was saying about it. And then I played it, and it was warm puppy poop. I'd do 3 modes to light... nothing? But there was supposed to be something. It was a fine shooter, and was also when Stern was doing better lighting. But the game itself was just boring and poorly executed.
It really took too long for them to update it to a decent level. The games place in history was cast at that point. There wasn't much to distinguish modes, and it was a bit lame.
Once they did get it together, the game is amazing. I find it to be an absolute blast. They gave you multiple goals, and different ways to approach the game.
I run the motion picture soundtrack with some edits to make Vengeance good. It is just a fun game to play.
