Fun, for a while,
This review is from: Star Trek: Legacy (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Got this with high hopes for a fun 3 dimensional shoot-em up, and I wasn't disappointed at first.
The main gripes that I have are with the length of the game and the limited replay value.
It only took a couple of days to complete and, with a couple of exceptions, all of the missions consist of doing pretty much the same thing.
The vast majority of the game is spent going round and round in circles shooting until they're dead, which, whilst not a bad thing in itself, does get a little repetative after about 5 missions.
Graphically it's ok, though obviously doesn't push the 360 at all, though the voice acting is a joy.
The choice of ships is good, but like the other reviews say, you can only play as Klingon, Romulan or Borg in the highly disappointing multiplayer.
The multiplayer maps are just so ridiculously small! The battles on average last about 30 seconds, since all the players are virtually on top of each other from the start. There's very little tactical play to be had, which since this is touted as a tactical game, takes quite a bit of the fun out of it.
Overall, it's good fun for a quick weekend, especially if you're a Trekkie, but it's long term appeal is hampered by the repetative solo game and the pointless multiplayer.
