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.
I have two brothers that live out of state and we've gotten on every night to do missions together. It definitely takes playing games with people to the next level. After a few minutes you are completely immersed in that reality and it is the coolest thing to be sitting in the prep room of the star ship planning the missions and hanging out with your friends. Mainly because everyones actions are mimicked in the game. So when I look at my brothers they see me looking at them and if I'm talking with my hands that carries over too. It's insanely immersive.
The 4 roles you can play definitely serve a purpose and can be fun in their own right. I've played it solo and it is fun, but this game is definitely made to be played with others to get the full effect. It's a great way to hang out with friends or family in VR space with a fun task to do. If you are a trekkie this should be a no brainer. It puts you on the bridge of a federation ship to live out your Star Trek fantasy of being a Star Fleet officer. One of my brothers literally bought a PSVR just to play this game and says this game alone was worth the purchase.
Also one thing I really like about this game is it's longevity. Unlike most VR games once you play it through there is not much replay value other then wanting to go through it again. But, this game has dynamic missions which creates random missions with various situations and task. So the replay value is endless.
I like the direction that VR is going and where a game like this, which would be very boring played outside of VR, is opening up new possibilities for games. The graphics are pretty good considering the limitations of VR in it's current state, but definitely immersive enough. As for the servers, I've not had any issues connecting to date. If you have a friend that has a VR rig, you definitely should try this game out. If they ever make a sequel to this game, I would buy it.
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.
