And apologies for the long-winded review!
I've been a Star Trek fan for a long time, but STAR TREK ONLINE came around post-WoW and I was not looking for another MMO to get sucked into. In addition, the initial reviews for the game were not all that positive. It was really easy for me write it off. But here we are now and not only has the game gone through a serious overhaul, but it's now free-to-play. I finally decided to take the plunge and I was nowhere near disappointed.
The thing I've noticed since quitting WoW is that most MMOs these days, regardless of how much sense it makes, always try and copy the WoW formula. It worked tremendously well in that instance so, therefore, it must work again, ad infinitum apparently. STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC was the latest one I tried. Fantastic concepts and production values, but what should've been a Star Wars game that played by Star Wars rules, was instead a Star Wars game that played by WoW rules. It was pretty much every MMO I had ever played, but with a Star Wars theme.
STAR TREK ONLINE, on the other hand, doesn't really try to be WoW. It jumps through hoops and tries to be, well... Star Trek. It's for this reason that STO really sets itself apart from other MMOs currently up and running.Read more ›
Star Trek Online ultimately proved disappointing to me. I bought the Collector's Edition, which is very nicely packaged and includes a slew of freebie passes to hand out to your friends, a cool-looking replica of the new combadge featured in the game, and a very nice selection of production art. The game installs easily and once the patcher finishes updating, you're ready to go. Character creation is very involved, enabling you to customize virtually to your heart's content. Human, Vulcan, Bolian, Betazoid, non-joined Trill, Andorian...or get really creative & invent your very own 100% original Star Trek alien species! You choose Tactical, Engineering or Science career path, the only difference between which is the powers granted for use in space & ground combat.
Combat is the primary focus of STO, with a greater subjective focus on ground combat over space--which was sad for me, because I enjoyed space combat so much more. There's minimal "exploration", really no boldly going anywhere 100's of players haven't already been. There is an economy, which is strange really, but nice work has been done trying to shoehorn it into the canon. The levelling pace in STO is INSANE. You begin as a lowly Ensign. You're rapidly promoted to Lieutenant, and from there you'll go to Lieutenant Commander, Commander, Captain, and finally Rear Admiral. Each rank (aside from Ensign, which has 1, and RA which has 5) has 10 ranks.Read more ›
The majority of this review was written prior to the actual release of the game. The content in this review is regarding my experiences of the beta and the first few days of release. Some of the details of this review may differ slightly as time passes due to updates; however, I feel that most will probably remain the same or very close.
Short and sweet if you don't want to read the whole review, I enjoy the game despite its minor flaws. I also believe the game has lots of room for improvement and shows great potential to be wonderful MMO. Ignoring the fact that it's still got some beta bugs and I often had trouble connecting for the first few days with the servers either going down or being full, I would give it 8 out of 10 at its current stage and for the content alone.
As far as the Collector's Edition goes, I would save yourself the money unless you're REALLY into the collectibles. While the badge and the art collection are nice and high quality, I don't feel they're worth the $33 premium.
The rest of the review is for those of you still with me who want more DETAILS about the game.
As for the game itself, I really enjoy it.Read more ›
