Summary: I will not go into to much detail but over all here are my views 1. Ship movement, very poor, you can't use the mouse or the arrow keys you move the mouse it move the camera but not the ship. Over all very poor. 2. Game Play, ZERO depth. Your better off with Armada, Starfleet Command 3, or Bridge Commander 3.
Summary: As a user on the game's forum called it, a "take the money and run" holiday PC release of an unfinished console port. A frustrating simple shooter. GRAPHICS: I tried this game because of the words "stunning graphics". The results were mixed. While the game can sometimes be beautiful, its sometimes not a big improvement over Bridge Commander. There are smoother models, planets have glowing halos, dust clouds, etc, but many of the ships are too plain and unrealistic.
Will try to be nice about it, but to put it simple BUYER BEWARE

Summary: If you are a PC Gamer like me, dont even waste your time with this game. I got it, installed it and it was bug heaven. I patched it, made it a little better, but still the control scheme has alot of problems that need to be addressed. On a recommendation, I purchased a 360 controller and soon after install and setup, the games graphics were VERY unstable (choppy video) as well as you cannot configure any of the controls at all.
Summary: This game has taught me a lesson I will never forget: WAIT FOR THE REVIEWS BEFORE BUYING. As a huge Trek fan, I made the cardinal sin of purchasing this game the day it came out. Man, did I get snookered. I thought I would be taking the helm of Federation star ships and engaging in complex, immersive battles that would make me feel I was in the Trek universe.
Summary: I am a huge Star Trek plan and love playing any and all PC games I can get my hands on. I was so disappointed with this title. My biggest complaint are the controls. The way they are laid out is very counter-intuitive and when you're holding down "Ctrl" to fire your phasers, at least on my new laptop, the ship stops turning. Apparently, it can't handle more than one command concurrently. (Holding down 'A' to turn and 'Ctrl' to fire.
Summary: I've waited with great anticipation for this beautiful looking game to grace my computer, and now I wish I hadn't. Bethesda has made some great games in the past, such as Morrowind and Oblivion. But with the Star Trek franchise, they've dropped the ball pretty hard. Star Trek: Legacy for the PC is a challenge to play, not because it is difficult (it isn't), but because it has so many bugs and bad design decisions with which the player must fight just to PLAY the game.
Summary: Another disappointment. Another casualty of the console driven push for style over substance. First, understand that this is a shooter, light on the tactical. If you are expecting an adventure, or the depth of say, Bridge Commander, or even Starfleet Command, you are in for a surprise. The voices of five captains, are all you get as far as frills go. You will never see them. You will never see cut-scenes. There is no Bridge view.
In space, no one can hear you scream...not until the patch comes out, anyway.

Summary: My son has been eagerly anticipating this game for nearly a month (the release date was actually on our calendar), and I was loathe to disappoint him. I drove clear across town to the only EB in the phone book that had it in stock (two days AFTER the release date, BTW. That is, the release date that was announced after the previous release date, which was pushed back from an earlier release date, but is stilll a week before the OTHER release date, of the xbox version,...
I had high hopes... was let down way more than I anticipated

Summary: The two games I would recommend as an alternative: Bridge Commander and Starfleet Command 3 are both near impossible to find nowadays. You know that you are in trouble when the PC game recommends the controller for the console it was ported from - and when you find AI files from STAR TREK ARMADA dated 1998 in the installation directory. It is difficult to change the control settings for novice users.
It would be nice if they released a completed game!

Summary: Well Bethesda did it again...all the potential in the world and they released an unfinished piece of junk! They did not even to bother to create a really cool space battle intro or anything. Besides being bug-filled and difficult to control, the missions are not good. Plus, you can not save unless you complete all the segments of a mission....what a joke. I think it is about time that these companies talk to us trekies (trekers) to see what we want in a game.
