Star Trek: Resurgence is out but should you go out and get it?
Star Trek: Resurgence is the second modern Trek video game to be made, right behind Star Trek: Prodigy: Supernova, which came out late last year. That was more of a run-and-gun action game, while Resuregence is far more along the lines of an old Telltale game, like the first season of the classic Walking Dead Telltale game.
The gimmicks are the same, you’re injected into a novel of sorts, where you can choose your own adventure, so to speak. Each situation is supposed to alter the game in some significant way, and the ending is supposed to be different enough to create replayability.
They’re not the most exciting games, definitely more geared toward heavy readers, and less geared towards the Fortnite fandom. The emphasis is that the writing and performances are supposed to drive the excitement, not the gameplay.
So should you get Resurgence? Well, let’s see what everyone is saying about the game;

"Despite these glaring flaws, Star Trek Resurgence offers a space-worthy experience for Star Trek fans."
"Resurgence does an admirable job of capturing the spirit of Star Trek. …The choices are almost never easy, but the lack of a morality system or any indication of what you’re “supposed” to do creates a sense of freedom to act how you imagine these characters would."
"While yes, I have my gripes about the technical issues, the game is hands down a proper Star Trek game worth playing. If you want to jump into a brand new Star Trek storyline, you will want to pick up this game."
"Resurgence will very much give you a solid Trek tale populated with compelling characters and interesting leads that perhaps comes closest to making you feel like you’re taking part in a classic Star Trek narrative—certainly more than many other games have attempted in decades. But that success is often in spite of itself, a not-quite diamond in the very-much rough of its clumsy, awkward mechanics"
"The game seamlessly flows from cut scene to choice to puzzle and back again making this the ultimate choose-your-own adventure within Star Trek. However, both the PC and console review releases had a few hiccups including dropped frames, and audio issues, usually fixed by just reloading the most recent save point, and hopefully, these little bugs will be sorted out with early patches."
