Star Trek Online

Posted on: March 7, 2010

What?! Star Trek? As an MMO?! What could possibly be better?!

Long gone are the days when I condemed a game simply because it was an MMO. I feel to WoW three, maybe four years ago, and since them I’ve never looked back. Guild Wars, Lineage II, and stupid free MMO’s have all been par for the course. Now comes the newest one: Star Trek Online.

This is a sample of actual game play from the game. And I have to note, space combat is really cool. It tends to be a bit on the easy side, and PvE tends to be balanced for one person instead of a whole group of people, but there is at least a decent amount of strategy involved in ship position, movement, etc.

The thing I like most about the game though is the ability to write Logs. It’s a simple thing, and one that most people probably won’t appreciate, but to be able to file a log under a mission (just like I really was a Star Fleet captain) is beyond exciting. It makes my roleplaying senses tingle.

Still, I’ve only had the game for a few days. We’ll so how I feel with it after my thirty day trial is over.
