Comment: Rating this a 2 based on the follwing.

I am a star trek fan and yes i am going to hate on sto.

This review takes out community casue realy thier are goods and bads in every mmo and i normaly dont get into that to much its to situational and also view point oriented (ill see someone pk someone else and think cool i want to know ho he is even if iw as pked and see wha type of person he is not damn that guy he is a nub and sucks at this game blah blah blah, did you guess im a pk lol)

1. the only good point i can see is that graphics are decent not the best but decent.

2. the implementation of the factions the borders and the ability to interact with each is sad, sorry but being a star trek fan i know that even if thier is an allaince between factions thier still neutral zone problems along with raiding and spying. Saying that the klingons and federation are on the verge of war and wait i can fly right by a federation ship within my own territory or half of a territory and not engage him directly is just bad. Klingons are limited to thier couple sectors and cant move out of them which is also terrable.

3. Ships are not balanced very well to anything we have seen on any star trek show,now i know this is an mmo but come on, theve turned the star trek ships into funny cartoons IMO. Supper power on my BOP or Defiant and watch i fire so fast its not funny. Dominion wars buggy or not showd more accuratlyw hat tey coul do.

4. the way BO's work just bad the abilities removes it from being anything even close to a star trek game and puts it somewhere else.

5. I can understand gamefreak giving the content 5/10 but im sorry i think thats generous. 3/10 is more appropriate well 2.5 of 10 the amount missing from fed side is terrable while the klingons have none of it lol oh wait a couple things.

Recap: story line is bismal, pvp is a joke, balance is a major issue(fix klingon tactial so the ship skills affect their omega strikes and so forth so we get 90% like the feds instead of 30 lol and they complain about klingons haha just wait,)graphics are subpar for the time of release, concept of non interaction between your two player factions except in the bad arenas fail yet again, interface: gamefreak got it right 2/10.

game is not passable with terrable implementation of every aspect of the game.

Comment: I agree with gamefreak, STO is unfinished. I had high hopes but they have been dashed by the subpar MMO.

Comment: I"ve played the beta, and a week in to what is supposed to be the finished aspect of the game.

I"ll get straight to the reviewing, though.

Graphics 7/10

For a new MMO, I was expecting next generation graphics. What I found was a game that had around 2005-2006 graphics with a lack of shader use. However, some of the texturing is passable, and the character customization leaves nothing behind. For that, the game gets a 7/10.

Sound 6/10

Again, for a new game, especially one with such a title to live by as star trek, I was expecting good music, tracks, etc. I found those. However the voice acting in the game is terrible, and is certainly not where it is needed. The only remotely good voice acting is what comes out of Leonard Nemoy aka Spock.

Community 9/10

What to say. The community seemed very mature for me. Not a lot of those 1337 kids around in STO.

Interface 2/10

This is where the game hits the shitter. Horrible interface and control issues, from simple unresponsiveness to mission text coming up in the middle of a battle. You will go into a mission, and be attacked as soon as you arrive in some occasions, leaving the mission text to be scrolled through while your ship is getting vaporized. Annoying? To say the least.

Content 5/10

I have to pass this with a simple 50% as the content involved in STO is the bear minimum required for a mmorpg to function. You will have those classic, go and kill this many enemies and the scan this and come back sort of missions. Exploration is a joke, as there is simply nothing noteworthy to explore. To go along with this mentioning of exploration, it turns out you can"t even explore your own ship. With the exception of the bridge, which, ironically, doesn"t do a damn thing. Finally, the sides are very unbalanced. For example, there are two factions. Federation and Klingon. Federation is PvE and PvP, as it should be. However, Klingon is PvP only. This leaves masses of players on the Federation side and dwindling amounts on the Klingon side. This results in poor PvP, usually ending with the Federation annihilating the Klingons.

Gameplay 4/10

This area is another point in where the game cannot be passed. Let us start with the main focus of the game. Space.

Where to start? Well it"s a basic space game. You point your ship at your target and instead of actually aiming with a crosshair like you would in games such as X3: Terran Conflict, you press buttons to automatically shoot. Ship customization is small and few between, and there is not any sort of way to customize your weapons, nor craft any.

Where the game really falls apart is the ground aspect, though. The ground combat is horrendous. Your away missions consist of you and 3-4 other npcs, who are about as useful as a baby with a pistol on safety mode. They will die. A lot. The ground combat is also very bland, nothing exciting here. Missions? Well, simply this:

1) Beam down and scan then beam back up.
2) Beam down, kill 30 people, a ridiculously easy boss, then beam back up.
3) Beam down, find your mission is glitched, beam back up.

That"s all there is to say for ground combat.

As a final, on sentenced statement:

The game is passable, but widely unfinished, and does not deserve the attention of any players who do not want to play a mmorpg for over a week.

Comment: As a big Star Trek fan, I love STO. I have always wanted to have my own ship and crew. You can't call yourself a true Star Trek fan if you hate on STO.

Comment: Where is the meat. Cryptic has launched a very simple STO. Like City of Heroes and Champions, I can't see how the game will last for years. Star Trek fans may like it, but the hardcore will bore easy and leave.

Comment: i don't think it will be very good at all :( i am a HUGE star trek fan, im such a geek about that and only that, but i just don't think this will be good at all. star wars galaxies was ok with the player owned ships and stuff, but on star trek - imagine a thousand people playing each with their own galaxy class star ship. captain picard had to be the best captain in the fleet to command one of those, and that's picard we're talking about here. it just won't have a realistic star fleet atmosphere if the players own all the ships. with star wars the old republic (soon to be MMORPG giant) you can count on it being amazing because bioware are making it, who made kotor (arguably a masterpeice) and most other star wars games have been awesome. now looking at the star trek franchise's games, we see the all time low 'star trek star ship creator' and other games that have serverely disapointing and have gone without much or any recognition. i'd LOVE a star trek mmo, and i'm sad that i just can't count on this being any good. i'm very sad :(

Comment: This game has been delayed indefinitely. Star Trek OnLine crew has been laid off.

Perpetual Entertainment, now officially known as P2, will remain in business as an "engine-only" company. It is holding onto its proprietary MMORPG technology, which it has licensed to BioWare for work on its unnamed massively multiplayer project, which is rumored to be based on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

Comment: StarTrek ships and warp drive/hyperspace are immensly inferior to Star Wars Tech. (At least this game is better than Pokemon.)
