Summary: First, I have been a fan of Star Trek since the original series. Yet I am still willing to allow the developers some freedom to work with the material. But the developers in this case are lazy (this product was rushed...), and I seriously doubt their competence. I have been playing this game since closed beta (11+ months ago). And some of the same issues we had in beta, and at launch, are still here.
Summary: While I would not by any means call myself a diehard Trekkie, I have generally enjoyed the franchise- including quite a few older PC games. A friend recommended this game to me, and being quite sick of fantasy MMOs, I decided to give it a swing. Star Trek Online (STO) is a massive multi game, and has most of the typical elements present in such: levels, gear, crafting, PvP, quests, zones, customization, etc.
Summary: As a Star Trek fan since I watched the first episode broadcast in 1966, I had high hopes for this game. I've played games of all sort my entire life, and over the last few years spent quite a bit of time in World of Warcraft. Sadly, this game just didn't deliver for me. The graphics are not very good, and that was an initial disappointment that did not improve. There were bugs in the beginner training missions.
Could be fun, except for messy UI and lack of information

Summary: This game looks great, but the lack of supporting materials even in the special edition is concerning. I have played other games fromt this vendor that are much more straight forward. Nothing is intuitive in the UI. When I looked online to find ANYBODY with information on how to perform necessary tasks, I was constantly referred to a group of 6-10 manuals by a third party at $20 a piece. After a month I cancelled my subscription.
"Beautiful on the outside, lacking content on the inside"
23 February 2010
Pros: Graphics are beautiful; actions of both the ground & space units are true to form. Special effects are also very impressive as far as the combat goes. Initial customization of character was very detailed. Ships and characters were also true to form.
Cons: Lack of any "meaty" content beyond character creation & initial gameplay. Missions are "cookie-cutter", and the PvP lvling of the Klingons became boring after only a few battles. Lack of any diversity on the Klingon side. Repetitive, repetitive ...
"Good at first but find alot of flaws after awile...ALOT"
13 February 2010
Pros: Pretty good looks on the ships Give a little feel to the Star Trek Experience.
Cons: Few Quests can't be completed due to quests items being under the earth and unable to aquire. (gets very Frusterating) Ground Troops Graphics are not that good. Quests are sometimes hard to locate.
Summary: Als dieses Spiel rauskam kaufte ich es mir sofort da ich nach 5 Jahren World of Warcraft mal etwas anderes ausprobieren wollte. Zum Anfang macht das Spiel echt Spaß zumal man auch seinen Charakter auch in allen Einzelheiten selbst erstellen kann (Tattoo, Haare, Größe, Dicke etc.).Auch die Uniform kann man sich in liebevoller Art und Weise selbst gestalten.Doch die Euphorie flacht leider recht schnell ab.
Summary: Star Trek: Conquest Sie sind Q, das allmächtige Wesen aus dem All - jedenfalls möchte Star Trek Conquest Sie das glauben machen. In dem Strategiespiel treten Sie per Internet gegen einen anderen Q an; Solisten müssen gegen die (extrem bescheidene) Kl. spielen. Auf einem Mini-Bildschirmausschnitt hat jeder Teilnehmer einen Planeten, von dem er rundenweise seine Truppen in die Richtung des anderen schickt.
