    So yesterday I downloaded that huge STO client and gave the game a try. Now I can see why it has mediocre reviews. The game looks fantastic graphically for an MMO but can't say the same for its gameplay.

    Have you guys heard about this new MMO called Vindictus? Just read about it. It's a free to play MMO from Nexon America. Looks like it uses Greek/Roman mythology. Pretty cool.

    Sadly the Star Trek Online Demo just does not do the game any justice.

    On the subject of STO, I checked out the demo and it is horrible compared to the real game. I've been playing STO since open beta, and I still enjoy playing it every day.

    I will admit that when it was released, STO seemed to be lacking some polish, but the devs have been cranking out new content and improvements every week since its release.

    I enjoyed the demo. I just wish I could afford a full account. Hopefully soon.

    Please rename the thread title as it have nothing to do with STO. It makes me wonder the real reason you posted this is for advertisement.

    I enjoyed STO for a while, but it soon becomes the same repetitive stuff every mission.

    1. Mission description.
    2. Go here.
    3. Kill it.

    Next mission

    1. Mission description.
    2. Go here.
    3. Kill it.

    The only thing that changes from mission to mission is the things the characters say, otherwise you just do the same thing over and over again, different ships, different race, same thing.

    I haven't renewed my subscription since march, and don't plan to again. There's no depth to the game at all. If you like doing the same thing over and over again but reading a different story behind it and that entertains you, then that's fine, theres no real exploration.. all you do is enter an "unexplored" system and get attacked. Infact, they couldn't even get that right because most of the time it's a federation station that's being attacked, or a federation colony, or pirates... or there just happens to be a space station with no inhabitants on it that suddenly dissapeared, you walk around the station tapping consoles to find out what happened... then times that by about 20. Seriously, i forgot how many asteroid stations i encountered whose crew had gone mad because of some experiment... there sure are a lot of federation outposts in unexplored systems that seem to suddenly end up being abandoned. I really fail to see how re-playing the same missions with a different polish from an admiral can really keep someone pleased?

    I gave the game a chance until i reached Admiral 4 or something like that, but after a long pause from the game due to my rig being down, i haven't re-installed it and i don't think i ever will.

    Shame the original developers couldn't get their game out before giving it to Cryptic, because it looked 100% better than it does now and probably had more to do with Star Trek than this load of crap.

    Rant over.

    When I played the beta for Star Trek Online, I played for all of an hour and then quit the game. It was absolutely awful.

    Actually all the original developers had was Vaporware.
    They had no complete engine and not even any actual game content, just a bit of concept art and renders and an incomplete engine.
    Cryptic is the only company that actually got the game done, and under pressure for a quick release from CBS/Paramount and Atari.

    I got bored of STO after a couple of months. I didn't have a bad time playing but the game just lost its appeal after a while. Graphics wise the game is stunning, but this is when in space. The ground combat is boring and like playing a one sided game of chess by yourself. Simply keep finger on fire and thats about it, nothing harder that that.
