Summary: Overall this is a good game. I wish it had more video clips of characters with the story line. it seemed a little choppy between the eras. but excellent premis. but i really liked it. it used a good amount of stratigy and you needed to use your brain to finish some levels not just blow up everything in sight.
Summary: As others have stated, this is probably the third best ST game (after probably Star Trek Online, and Bridge Commander). I like the game better than I thought I would and thought the graphics and gameplay were better than most online reviews. What doesn't work with it: The controls are really non-configurable (you could edit a text file for some of them), and the in-game and pamphlet definitions don't always agree.
Summary: Indeed the stock game was a giant floating turd, but after 3 years of modders working their butts off the game RIGHT NOW is what it should have been when everyone first bought it. Do a search for Star Trek Legacy Mods because I can say "You won't be sorry" Miri's Hot GFX Artist/Visual Presentation Ultimate Universe Mod
Summary: What excitement had I to be able to pilot the ships of Star Trek, and to pick between the Enterprise X-1, the Enterprise NCC-1701, the Enterprise NCC-1701A, the Enterprise NCC-1701D, the Reliant, the Constitution, etcetera. And indeed I was having fun, with the familiar sounds of people telling me things on board, and piloting the ship in to lock phasers on a target and attack. But that's about where the fun ends.
Star Trek: Legacy could have been the best Trek game ever....

Summary: ...but instead, it became a disappointment. To start off, Legacy was clearly a disappointment even to Trek fans like me. The system requirements are all wrong, and many users have reported that even though it was listed (in the minimum system requirements) to have Windows XP, their game still would not run.
Summary: I know there is not much point in writing a review of this game at this point, since you will be hard pressed to find a copy of it, but this is truly a pathetic excuse for a PC game. Bethesda should be ashamed to put their name on such a product. The controls are completely broken. The manual, what little of it there is, refers to xbox controls, and the in-game tutorial refers to buttons that do not correspond to their stated function.
Summary: Oh boy, Legacy is a very pretty game with excillent ship modles, and interesting sand-box invironments. The controls are complicated, where they are not confusing, and some of the missions seem incredably difficult as a result. With the voices of five captains, I guess I got my expectations got too high. The potential factor is what hurts this game (everything it could have been is working against it)but all in all still a must have for "hard core trekkies"!
Summary: I had high hopes for this game. I really did. But like a Klingon BoP, it let me down at the worst possible time - all the time. The controls were terrible and to make it worse there is no way in game to change them, worse yet, it doesn't support joysticks. That's right, no pulling an 'Archer' and flying the NX-01 by the stick, nor any of the others either. The physics were horrible too.
Summary: I am a Star Trek fan, and when I heard about Star Trek: Legacy, I just had to buy it. I looked at many reviews on the game, and what I saw had me concerned. But, I bought the game anyway, since I wanted to give it a try. My final opinion,this game deserves another chance!!! The controls are hard at first, but after you play it for awhile, you'll get used to it.
