Summary: If I were to imagine what kind of game the quirky, cheesy, and occasionally philosophical sci-fi television series of the 1960s Star Trek, now reimagined for the current generation, would be, a 3rd person shooter would be low on the list. That is, however, exactly the kind of game we got. Simply titled Star Trek and set within the new J.J.
Star Trek: The Video Game - Playing this game would be highly illogical

Summary: I was so looking forward to Star Trek: The Video Game . I probably shouldn't have been after seeing the words "third-person shooter", but then again, I noticed the obvious influences of games like Mass Effect and Gears of War . Too bad those games had no bearing on the final product. Digital Extremes has crafted one of the worst games of 2013. For starters, Star Trek: The Video Game is just plain broken. It's buggier than a Florida swamp in midsummer.
Summary: Did you honestly imply that "like the original series" the game will not last the test of time? Because if you did that's the most incorrect statement I've ever heard. Star Trek the original series has very well stood the test, seeing as they keep selling dvds and blurays. Also for its time it was a very high budget TV show. We may have come along way in 50 years but the show is as good now as it was then in many peoples opinion.
Summary: Color me surprised. Did anyone really think a Star Trek tie-in would work, let alone be fun? I sure didn't, but here we are. Instead of a long review, I'm just going to simplify this with a list of pro's and con's. Pro's - It works - The inside of the Enterprise looks fantastic - The characters from the movie do a superb job voicing the game.
Summary: ...as a Star Trek fan, I can safely say this was the biggest dissapointment I've ever had to experience. The sound quality is really good, but everything else about this is mediocre. The starships move too slow and warp speed isn't even fast enough to help that. The shooting controls are the all-time worst I've ever seen and I've seen a lot. The story is actually good, but could be better. The graphics are early Nintendo 64 and I mean 1996. Yeah, they are that bad.
Summary: I wish someone licensed to release a startrek game actually put an effort into the gameplay.The ships look very detailed,even plasma leaks, and combat damage look super.Firing phasers and torpedos sound and looks great.Command issues,piloting your vessel, or activating a scan or special order is like waiting in line at a DMV.You just hope you eventually get the job done, without going through alot of BS.If bethesda actually cared about the trek fans they would amend this...
Summary: Star Trek Legacy is good in some ways. The GAME PLAY is great for trekkies that the battles feel like you are watching the shows and the movies. You get to have four ships to play as and you can play from The Orginal Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space 9, Voyager, and Enterprise and you play as the Federation, Romulans, Kligeons, and the Borg. There are over 80 ships from all three eras and five shows.
Summary: As a religious Trekkie and a lover of all of the Star Trek series when I saw this game "excited" was not the word for it. But when I actually started playing it, it fell far short of my expectations. The controls are sticky and hard to get, ship battles are frustrating and game-play itself is quite dull. Also checkpoints are few and far-between and with no manual save you may find yourself playing an entire half hour mission again because of one mistake.
Summary: Star trek legacy in all is a great game. It has a well plotted story line and it's multiplayer is really great. Sound as well as graphics are very decent. Althoug interaction could use a little improvement. For example ships when the go on a head on collision they just bump into each other like nothing happened also the skirmish could've been better like it would;ve let you pick the enemy ship instead of the AI just picking a random one that would've made the experience...
