CGR Undertow – STAR TREK: LEGACY review for Xbox 360


Good day. Here we have Star Trek Legacy, released
for the Xbox 360 and PC, and until fairly recently the PC version was absolutely horrible
because Legacy was designed with the Xbox 360 in mind. And surprisingly enough, it works
quite well. Now, Star Trek Legacy is a starship simulation styled game, similar to Starfleet
Command 3. In fact, you could basically just say that this game is a console version of
that game. Now in this game, you control one of four ships, and you just fight enemies
or run scans or do any number of other mission objectives. And it controls really quite well
– I’d almost go as far to say that you could control the ships in this game as good with
the controller as you could with a keyboard. The graphics for the game look good, and all
the ships are highly detailed, although I will say the actual name on the NX-01 Enterprise
doesn’t look all that good. In fact, it looks like someone just drew on it with a bloody
marker. And the voice acting for the game ranges from bad to really quite good. Really,
the most notable aspect of Star Trek Legacy is the fact that all the captains from the
Star Trek TV series actually appear in this game – and that gets into the campaign of
the game. It is EXCELLENT. Now the overall story for the campaign is
the origin of the Borg, and the campaign actually has elements that go throughout all the different
eras of Star Trek. Another really awesome thing is the fact that
you can use warp drive. I feared they might have actually removed this from the game as
it would be rather difficult to implement it, but it can be used to quickly escape from
enemies to go and repair your ship, which thankfully is also present in this game. Like in Starfleet Command 3, you can actually
repair the damage that is done to your ship. Unfortunately, your teammate AI is not good
enough to actually repair the ships themselves, meaning you have to go and take direct control
and make them repair their bloody ships. Also, they will never withdraw, but then again,
in Starfleet Command 3, they never did either. In the end, star Trek Legacy is a very good
game. It’s a very solid console starship simulator. Now, the PC version has gotten better with
various mods that have been released, but when this game came out, the console version
was the best, and I actually recommend it if you don’t have a PC powerful enough to
handle the rather annoyingly steep hardware requirements of Legacy. And so, this is Jon,
wishing you good Starfleet Command 1, good Starfleet command 2, or whatever makes you
happy.

  1. At first I didn't really like this guy, I admit but now after seeing like 2-3 reviews from this guy with which I completly aggree and like, I can honestly say ignore the haters keep up the good work.

  2. I loved this game. Only thing I would change was warp drive. I hated how it was just a quick burst. The game wasn't anything special and the online multiplayer was very basic but the game was just simple fun

  3. He's pretty unpleasant, sure. But at least he's better than the mentally handicapped kid they had doing reviews. Not trying to be cruel, but anytime I started a video and heard his voice, I'd immediately close it. Too painful.

  4. The xbox, pc version was too buggy and if you did get the mods you would make it as good as the 360 version

  5. Ah isn't that just one of the best things that can happen to a game that you own…..ლ(ಠ益ಠ)ლ
    Go to PB! You have the actual game so no worries! And If you don't know what that "PB" stands for, here is a hint, it is short for a certain website name! Use your head meat you'll figure it out!

  6. That's not the problem with I have with him at all. PC gaming always has been and always will be superior to console gaming in every way. I just find his personality, voice, and inability to criticize anything very annoying. As far as being biased, he seems to only review games he really enjoys, thus all his reviews are rather biased. Not to mention anyone that praises HL2 as much as him has no clue what makes a good game.

  7. Easily one of the best console Star Trek gamers ever, but there are some aspects of it that really suck, and I hate that previously completed missions aren't replayable. I had to create entirely different profiles just so I could save at various points in the game and re-experience the TOS and TNG eras.

  8. Starwarsfanboy101, STO has HORRIBLE starship combat, all focused on some bastardization of WoW and the stupid power trays. Don't insult people with this comment. 

  9. I dont even get where your coming from there is nothing wrong with the base version on PC and if your PC cant run this I think you should through your PC out even my windows 8.1 tablet could run it.

  10. would've loved it if it came out for ps3. Even thou ps3 is done, maybe ps4?! Either way probably the best star trek game ive ever played

  11. to play this game on pc without lag buy this laptop HP F125WM it is strong enough for high settings and Anti-Aliasing for the game

  12. This is one of the few good Star Trek games. All the other one were trying to be gears of war third person shooters. We don't want that, we want space battles. Good job on this

  13. Was a good game, personally I enjoyed Kobayashi Maru Bridge Commander to this game but sometimes I do come back to this, the plot was well laid out (yet underwhelming in execution, as described later), the gameplay was drawn out at times but the combat was brilliant, each ship functioned differently to reflect their respective era, the limitations with the number of ships you can have was one of the major downsides for me (Compaired to Bridge Commander which let you have as many ships as your computer could handle), this game and BC both suffered from the same problem through: Licencing, both games tried to get as many voice actors from the TV series as possible. Unlike BC (Which only brought in Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner) Legacy brought in ALL of the main protagonists, with their original actors for voice acting, because of this, the plot seems arbitrarily stuck together as Legacy desperately tries to make use of all these actors, bringing in all these actors also caused huge budget problems as they had to pay off all these actors, the PC version of Legacy also suffered from huge backlash due to the clunky, and at times, unresponsive control scheme which really ruined most of the game for me, BC also suffers from this problem too, yet this is instantly negligible due to BC having button mapping for keyboards, the XBox verson of Legacy is considered by many a much better game simply due to its superior controls.
    In conclusion:

    Gameplay: 7/10
    Story: 5/10
    Controls: 2/10
    Graphics: 9/10

    Total Score: 7/10 (Enjoyable)
