Re: Star Trek Online Beta Impressions
I played in the closed beta for a few weeks and I have to say I wasn't impressed.
Ground combat is pretty lame. Starship combat is OK... it was the most fun part of the game for me.
Like all cryptic games it's heavily heavily instanced which I tend to really dislike.
The graphics are pretty good.
Never PVP'd so I can't comment but I hear it's arena/BG style so I'm not really excited about that.
Server performance was terrible... but it's a beta so I guess it's to be expected.
IMO it's been like every single mmo released in the last 5 years.... absolutely mediocre.
Until someone comes out and really changes the game I feel like every mmo will enjoy 2-3 months of success until it's player base leaves out of boredom or the next big thing.
