While this is an online multiplayer game, it also feels like an old-school dice-rolling RPG. By that I mean it relies on your teammates being mature, communicative, and cooperative, and thankfully 9/10 times its been just that. I have had a few younger people on my team who've been extremely polite, but you'll be finding yourself battling things like younger siblings threatening to turn console system off, or a parent calling for dinner to start. Not much you can do there.
The missions themselves can feel a little basic at times, I've seen more in-depth ones while playing the old Bridge Commander and Starfleet Academy games from 15-20 years ago. That said, I can see why the developers may have chosen to go more basic, given that the experience of actually sitting on the bridge may be a bit more than enough to occupy one's brain while playing.
The only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 are the glitches I've encountered so far. Sometimes you might get caught in warp, forever, or at times all of my teammates have seen different things on their readouts. As Captain I started yelling at my helmsman for not steering the ship when he in fact was. Hopefully these are things that can be patched.
Also, this includes missions on the original Enterprise which can be fun, but it ramps up the difficulty by 1000%. Imagine your keyboard being replaced with Jolly Ranchers and you can understand why. The experience of actually sitting on the original Enterprise bridge is a better experience than any gameplay you can actually get out of it.
Also, this game cross-platform with both the Oculus and Vive formats, which is a lifesaver in terms of online matchmaking.
Don't rush to judge this game based on training and solo play with AI. It really starts to shine when you start playing with real people online. The social aspect of this game is half the experience.
Also, if you are having trouble calibrating it so that your lap doesn't interfere with the virtual consoles... all you have to do is sit high in your seat while calibrating, then relax into your normal position. This will raise the consoles in the game.
The AI's are mostly decent at their jobs when playing solo, though the AI helmsman did inexplicably let the ship drift right into another stopped ship and then blankly did nothing when the entire AI crew was ordered to engage an enemy ship. I had to take over the helm position to reverse out of the collision before the AI helmsman would do anything again.
I originally dinged it a star for forcing the creation of a Ubisoft account, which is required even to play solo, but I have to give Ubisoft credit for enabling cross platform play when it is still hard to find a bunch of other people with VR equipment.
The Ageis is a good ship and quite strong. Note that you can fire phasers ONLY from the front 90arc of the ship, and your torpedo count is low to start with. So get used to taking over the helm to help your tactical officer keep wiping out enemies quickly, using computer remote hacking of the other ship after time time.
COOL FEATURE: you can run missions on board the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 from the original TV show!!! You don't play as Kirk. You play as yourself with your standard crew from the Aegis. That ship is a bit harder to control since the al switches and knobs with no labeling uless you use (which you will) the key-help pop ups. But it's still a lot of fun.
Playability: B+ (takes some getting used to with the different windows between characters you need to talk to or just take over for)
Pure Joy: A+++
