What is Legacy like?
It's like having all of your hopes and dreams ripped from your soul....To dramatic?
OK, how about...It's like having your pocket picked by a game developer.
At least that's how I feel about the PC version of Legacy.
I was so very dissapointed in what the game was supposed to be, in early discriptions, and what was finally released to the public.
The controls are ridiculous and the on-line game is almost unplayable.
The only saving grace for this game is that the graphics are nice and the single player game is half way decent (except for the before mentioned controls).
If it weren't for the modding community, coming up with problem solving solutions and designing new ships, I would have tossed this one away months ago.

Like NX01_Crewman said; the moral of the story is only buy it for the Xbox 360!

Yeah, it was a big disappointment for me as well. I am a fan of the old Starfleet Command series, but this was very hard to control the ships, weapons are very weak, and battles take WAY to long. Interface controls are sloppy and difficult to use in the heat of a battle. The save game function is non exsistant and frustrating, as you must play the entire era from beginning to get where you left off if you stopped! And I am sick of the ENT era!!!!

I have since deleted off my hard drive. Perhaps the mods may help, but meh....

It's only for PC and 360, it wasn't released for PS2.


As for the game itself, it's not the best game in the world, and it does have its flaws, but it is not the travesty that some people have been making it out to be. A lot of people were expecting it to be 'the perfect Trek game' (like that's ever possible  :eyesroll: ), or some other really high expectation, and it isn't. However, it's still a decent game, mediocre out of the box, but a decent game nonetheless.

So far, the 360 version has seen more enjoyment than the PC, but not because it was ported from the 360 to PC, it was actually developed for both simultaneously. The 360 users get a better experience because 1. the game developers used the Windows 360 Controller almost exclusively when playtesting and 2. The 360 has a set hardware configuration. Most of the major problems with Legacy that I've heard have to do with hardware issues on the PC, where people are playing the game with unsupported or insufficient hardware.

However, the 360 version has its limitations as well. Legacy's key strength, and what will make the game shine, is that it is incredibly easy to mod (I'm on one of the big mod teams, so I know from personal experience). If you have the PC version, I highly recommend downloading the mods, especially the big Total Conversion mods, because they VASTLY improve the quality of the game, to a level that the 360 players won't be able to match because their games can't be modded.

All in all, Legacy is a good game. It's not the best, it does have its flaws and its share of bugs (but then so does every game), and it was rushed out the door to be in time for Christmas, but with a little work from the modders it turns into a great game.

I have it for PC, and I get a lot of enjoyment out of it. But then, I haven't played the stock game in months, so that's not necessarily an accurate report on the game as it is out of the box.

Basically, there are four major mod teams working on separate mods for Legacy, plus the various individuals and small groups importing ships from other games, and making various and sundry other tweaks and adjustments. When the four major mods are done, it is my opinion that Legacy will be worth the original retail value, because of all the additional, user-created content that will be available. Already the big mods have made a huge difference in the quality of the game, and none of them are anywhere near being finished, so there's a lot more improvement on the way.

I recommend getting the game, either for 360 or for PC.
