If you’re still craving more Star Trek after the thrilling conclusion of Star Trek: Picard Season 3, then Star Trek Resurgence is the perfect game for you. With a gripping story and the opportunity to play as First Officer Jara and Petty Officer Carter on the USS Resolute, this game offers an exciting experience. However, it suffers from some bugs.
The story of the game is logical and attractive, with two different characters and their alternate missions. Your decisions carry weight and have a significant impact on relationships and the outcome of the narrative. The game successfully reinvents Telltale’s tried and true formula, replacing the vague “blank remember that” with detailed explanations of each character’s feelings for your actions.
The plot revolves around a new ancient threat and presents shocking mysteries that lead to a great threat to the galaxy. The characters’ personalities shine through, and difficult decisions await you at every turn. The stakes are high, and the tension is palpable as you navigate the story.
While the game starts slowly, it picks up speed as the plot thickens and becomes gripping. The voice cast and well thought out script contribute to the immersive experience. However, a potential sequel could benefit from more development of side characters and the ability to engage in casual conversation with the crew.
Star Trek Resurgence offers many aspects of being a Starfleet officer, including scanning objects with a Tricorder, flying a shuttle, and participating in combat. The attention to detail and faithful representation of the Star Trek universe adds to the enjoyment. However, some mini games lack clear explanations, leading to frustration.
Despite the rough launch and visual shortcomings, the game shows occasional moments of beauty in its attention to detail and pieces. However, it suffers from a lack of replayability due to the absence of a chapter-selection feature and long cutscenes.
Overall, Star Trek Resurgence is worth checking out for Trekkies and casual fans alike. It features the expertise of former Telltale employees and delivers a gripping storyline and unforgettable characters. The dedication to recreating the gadgets and ambiance of the Star Trek universe is admirable. Join this game and start an exciting Star Trek adventure.
The game is available on PC (Epic Store), Xbox Series X/One, and PlayStation 4/5. Although it is already available on these platforms, I eagerly await the possibility of a future release for the Nintendo Switch. The Switch’s portability makes it an ideal choice for enjoying interactive narrative games on the go.
