Haven't seen this posted, so I thought I should share. This is my first time posting a deal here, and I'm doing it from my mobile phone, so take it easy on me.

"Buy a version of the Star Trek game along with the Blu-ray movie, and save $15."

http://www.bestbuy.c...6&type=category

Since the blu-ray is $14.99, this essentially makes it free with purchase of the game. I can vouch that this offer is good in-store as well, and automatically packages together at the register.

I'm only a little over an hour into the game, but I'm really enjoying it so far... Which is surprising, since I'm not particularly fond of Star Trek, and I haven't seen the movie yet.

the game is mediocre, if you want to see some actual gameplay footage. It is already available on youtube

It's not a bad game. If you really like Trek you will enjoy it. It uses the actors and wroters from the movies, and they did a great job. gameplay is fluid and smooth. its nothing groundbreaking, just imagine Trek Themed a co op shooter like Gear of War....but less clunky than gears. Gears always seemed very slow and clunky to me.

Have you played it?

i never once said the game was bad, and ppl should not buy it. the gameplay/ walkthrough videos are already up on youtube. Ppl can judge for themselves, if they want to buy it or not

Seems like the target demographic for this game would largely already own the bluray...

It's easy to write off licensed games as crap, but thankfully Star Trek is NOT the next Aliens Colonial Marines or Walking Dead Survivor Instinct. It's high on production values, graphics are good, and it's paced well. Gameplay is sort of Gears of War meets Uncharted, with a dash of Dead Space. I'm having a blast with it, and I'm not even a Star Trek fan.

Yeah, ok, so you played it, but did you watch the YouTube videos??

I kid, I kid. This is kind of a cool incentive in theory, but I feel like the folks who are going to buy this game would likely have a copy of the movie already.

It's just really sad that he would form an opinion of the game by playing it instead of just watching youtube videos. Ridiculous.

Yeah I am going to wait for a pricedrop...

I read three peoples reactions to it... one called it terrible and three loved it of which one was not a star trek fan... they often compared it to mass effect and gears of war with some arkham asylum thrown in there. Graphics were called good and co op was called "one of the best in years" and the plot was applauded as "movie like"

Negatives were that the cover system was a bit dry and glitchy and the AI was called terrible or bad in more than one review. But the reason that screamed "price drop" to me was that even the best reviews said the game had little replay value. So I will wait for a real price drop when that is added into the fact that I have a decent sized backlog

I hope it sells well, just because good Trek games are so freaking rare these days

Game is mediocre. It's not great, but it's not horrible. I rented it from Redbox. I did get bored with it pretty fast though. Graphics aren't that good, gameplay has some awkward moments with jumping, and cover system but the gunning, flow of combat is decent. I'd rent it first, but that's just my opinion.

Anyone have this feeling this game will be $10 on gamefly by the end of the year?

Hehe, but you have people like me who did preorder the 3disc blu (love the movie) but after a move, I can't find it anywhere so I am very tempted by this offer. (yeah, not the 3disc version but I will live. I am sure it is just in some box I overlooked).

Just ordered online for in-store pick up.
thanks OP. I've been itching to rewatch the movie and was intrigued by the game (not enough to pull the trigger separately) but this is just enough to push me over the fence.

They are so different from each other, that's a difficult comparison to make. I would say Star Trek has more in common with The Transformers Cybertron games in terms of gameplay and overall quality for a licensed game.

I don't know if you've been following Trek news, but AFAIK nobody knows jack shit about the movie outside of the fact that it's a sequel to the older one, and the title. I can't recall the last time security on a movie was locked down this tight, but there's been virtually no leakage outside of a crappy cell phone pic here or there. Trailers have just started coming out, but they don't give much away either. Do we even know who the bad guys in this film are yet?

Point is I think I've read that the game just ties in loosely with the movie, but it could be a word for word reenactment of the 2nd film and nobody would know it right now.

Anyone have this feeling this game will be $10 on gamefly by the end of the year?


A movie tie in game dropping in price? Nonsense. If anything the MSRP is just going to go up.

I hope it sells well, just because good Trek games are so freaking rare these days


Saying they are rare would imply that they exist, and I can't think of a single one. Star Trek Online and some crappy DAC game are the only ones I think you can still get. And god knows I wanted to like STO, but it's way too buggy/glitchy and just plain dull for me. And I'm insulted that they are selling $30 ships in the cash shop, I get that the game went F2P, but $30......... for a ship......... lol.

I remember they show the trailer when I saw Hobbit in theater and I was like, damn that's cool. Don't remember specific but my friends and I are totally excited since the 1st one was really good.
