(The reviews were lacking sufficiant data)

THE GAME ITSELF IS ABOVE AVERAGE, ALTHOUGH THE SKIRMISH MODE(PLAYING AGAINST THE COMP IN BATTLES) AND MULTI PLAYER(PLAYING ONLINE)  ARE WHAT REALLY MAKES THIS GAME GOOD. I WOULD RECOMMEND GETTIN AS MANY MODS FOR THIS GAME AS POSSIBLE JUST MAKES IT BETTER

Legacy is one of the best Trek games I've played. The graphics are excellent, though the controls do take some getting used to (never figured out how to target specific sub-systems). Of course it's not perfect, but for a Trek fan who enjoys starship battles, it's a MUST have.

The graphics and 3D rendering of the ships is nice, however the game has some serious flaws as well.

-You can have only one save game. This means if you ever want to go back and say play the TOS-era missions you need to play through the entire Enterprise era first.
-The controls are sloppy, and there is no option to remap the keys.
-Multiplayer (in my timezone at least [GMT]) is practically dead.
-There is no option to select opposing fleets in skirmish. You give the computer a certain number of points to spend and you can guarantee what ships it will bring.
-A good part of the storyline seems to have been cut out.

The game also claims to cover all 5 series, although Sisko and Janeway make only brief and non-playable appearances.

All in all it's worth a play, the campaign is enjoyable. However, I'd suggest looking at an ebay/amazon site or similar to see if you can pick it up for slightly less than the retail price.

Are you kidding! Star Trek: Legacy is the best Star Trek video game and is work every cent. I have the Xbox 360 version of it (never played it for PC), the graphics are stunning, the campaign is very enjoyable and action-packed, the skirmishes are a good way to practice battke skills for the campaign or playing it on Xbox Live! which is always enjoyable. I give this game ********** (10 Stars!;) and would recommend it to everyone with an Xbox 360!

that sums it up for me, good but I never got past the Enterprise era. The last ENT mission is hard! You have to protect a space station, set off some beacons to paralize some Romulan ships then phaser target engines on three Romulan ships before they leave orbit.

I can always get two thirds of the way in the mission, and never can lock on to engines before the Romulans leave. It is frustrating, but fun anyway

Sorry, I'm with those who say nice graphics but sloppy interface and other issues.
If you're a fan it's worth getting, personally I enjoyed Bridge Commander (in 3D mode) more and that's how the game should have been made, or at least Freelancer/Darkstar One like. Not to mention that initially I expected it to be a rts like ST Armada, that was my first disappointment.

For the PC this game is unfinished and nearly unplayable.

Virtually no multiplayer (mostly because they did a poor job with the MP lobby and matchmaking).
Only one save-game.
No ability to select what ships you are fighting against in skirmish mode.
Chopped up story with no cinematic scenes--just talking ships.
Short shrift to DS9 and VOY in the campaign.
No way to re-map controls.
Very little "strategy" here.  It's more a first-person shooter in starships than a RTS.
Tons of bugs reported by people on all kinds of different systems.
The company has said they are not going to patch the game anymore (and believe me it really needs patching!;).

A major disappointment.  Avoid it.

so, the moral of the story is that it is only worth getting on 360

thats why u go to file front and get what is called the community mod. it fixes 90% of the problems in the game.

the only problem i see with this game is that it plays better on a new out the box run of the mill MAC than it does on a PC.
(MAC with PC EMULATOR).

this game is deffinately what could be called a game modders dream.

Not everyone has time for mods, and besides, the question was whether to buy the thing.  I would say no to buying it because that just rewards Bethesda and MadDoc another 40 bucks (American, anyway) for putting out an unfinished product.  Why reward them for making the people who buy it do all the work?

I couldn't stand it.  I was pretty upset by it.  I was hoping it would be nice and since the actors helped with the voices, I though it was going to be very nice.

But it kept my attention for four days

well for about 30 minutes of your time you can get the community mod from filefront(30 min cause u have to register then find what your looking for)

it fixes most of the major bugs and allows you to add other races.

once you star seeing how good the ship mods are u will get into the maps and what not as well.

best of all its free!!
