Spend $100s to be a constant victim 1/5
A game in which you spend $100s to be a victim to people who spend $1000s. Monthly release of ships that costs $1000s and can beat everything previous. I will never play a Scopely game again in my life. Do not reward them with either your time or money.
Keeps closing!!!!! 3/5
Have enjoyed playing so far but since the last update, it keeps closing after only a few minutes. Please address this!
Money and Time Sink 1/5
When I first started playing the game I had high expectations and thought I had found a hame that could keep me interested long term. Thus had packaged that you could purchase that would reduce the time sink aspect of the game and I was good with that. Little did I know that those affordable purchase would go away as they pushed you towards $50 and $100 purchases. This truly is a P2W game and if you aren’t willing to shell out large sums of money then you just become a snack for those players that did. They also don’t offer the same opportunities for ship purchases to everyone. Multiple people in my alliance were offered the opportunity to buy more advanced ships that were of the same level as me and I never saw the same opportunity. Things like this and having my ships destroyed by players with no hope of being able to respond have made this game more like drudgery than fun. It’s great for the first 14 levels and then it just starts to go down from there. Take this for what it’s worth but I just seem this game as something i threw my money away in.
It was enjoyable... 2/5
This is a well designed game that is fun to play. At least it was until the developers decided to give unfair advantage to those willing to spend large amounts of money into the game, making it unplayable to those who can only afford smaller in game purchases. I have this feedback to them in a survey that interrupted my game and in the same day had two other sessions interrupted with requests to take the same survey. I’m disappointed as I was enjoying the game but, it’s just become too much of a headache that just isn’t enjoyable anymore... unless I want to dump $60+ into it... agreed wins out in the end I suppose.
Star Trek Fleet Command 1/5
Another pay to play game. Everyone is bottlenecked for resources so it forces you to join big alliances. As a result we know the outcome of the game will be who can build the biggest alliance. If all you enjoy is pvp this is the game for you, but I think they missed what could have been a game for all types of players.
Impossible to move forward 2/5
Like others have said, this game is completely unbalanced. It was fun at first but when you hit around level 18-19 it becomes impossible and completely joyless. Can’t achieve any missions without a super trick ship. Can’t build a ship without mining resources. Can’t mine resources because the entire universe of player characters is out to destroy you. Can’t defend yourself without a better ship. Rinse and repeat.
Hard, joyless slog. Decent graphics and the play up to this obvious inflection point was good enough. Spare yourself from yet another digital chore.
Pay to win garbage 1/5
Shallow gameplay that favors whales above fun
Nice game 5/5
Worst PvP game 2/5
I’ve been playing since December.
Any resources like Parsteel, Tritanium, Dilithium that you obtain through $100 purchases are not protected and subject to being raided by other players.
If you think you can grind away to eventually get a cool ship? Forget about it. With the refinery woefully stingy, and having to mine, or raid for resources, doing the math, it would take you over 6 months for any higher level 22 and up upgrades.
And you thought grinding for the Maus in world of tanks was bad? Just try getting to a Tier 5 level 35 Kumari battle ship when you reach level 25... you could be spending a year grinding.
And then they dangle these cool ships and resources in front of you in the form of events... well they are limited time, and geared towards P2W players... unless you have the money to upgrade to beat other players and don’t have anything else to do during 24 hrs and can devote all your time to it, you will not even stand a chance of winning anything significant.
The only thing you get for destroying another player’s ship or raiding whatever resources you can is hate mail from the subjected player. No gold, silver, XP, or anything that might help you grind your way to getting stronger or better ships. Zip, nada.
If it were not for being able to hang out with some friends some nights and chatting while raiding some poor player’s base I would have removed this game back in January. Whatever money I spent on this game was not worth it. There are always bigger fish... players at level 34 and above have either spent 20k (by one such player’s own admission) or must be playing non-stop, 24/7...
Unless you plan on spending money buying shields, so you can grind forever, It’s just not worth it. Little or negative pleasure (when your base gets raided!) for the time and effort you put into it.
Paid for resources stolen 1/5
Enjoyed the game at the beginning who wouldn’t it is Star Trek after all. However there are lots of bugs. It is a true pvp game. You will realize once u hit lvl 15. worst issue is paying for resources and losing them by repeated attacks by higher level players. CBS should pull the plug on this game as it is giving Star Trek a bad name.
Don’t waste your time or $$$ 1/5
This game is set up to be pay to play, there is no way to be successful in any events or challenges without sinking tons of cash and spending every second of every day logged into this game. After level 10 you are free game to all players regardless of their power level up to level 14, and it goes up in that interval from there. You can be targeted in all areas and by any faction aligned person including those allied with your alliance. The officer recruiting process includes so many garbage officers that your only chance to get quality officers is to purchase multiple packs because the standard reward packs don’t supply enough of each rank of recruiting packs to get anything regularly. The ship building process is ridiculous and makes no sense, the same with station design and functions. There is also of course no way to auto-shield yourself even if you have multiple shields in your inventory and any enemy can move their base next to yours so that they can empty your stored and stockpiled resources within 6-7 minutes, meaning in the time it takes you to go to the bathroom you can lose everything because the game only provides a 5 minutes shield after your defenses have been breached.
There is so much wrong with this game that I would not recommend it to anyone I like or dislike. It is absolutely garbage!!!!
This game so far offers neutral areas for mining and NPC experience farming, there are also areas for PvP and other combat related operations, and large mix of quests. This allows for a variety of game play without having to purchase in game items to protect yourself from obnoxious in game bullies taking advantage of open world conflict. If I find derogatory items as I progress I will update. 1/21/2019
Game broken 1/5
Events broken, pvp broken. Devs don’t respond to issues or bugs. Definitely don’t spend any money on this game.
Total scam 1/5
By jin ko82
How much does it cost to get the enterprise? 2.5k usd. Does the GM listen to the community? No. Do they charge 50 usd for a partial ship build which you cant even use? Yes, yes they do.
Used to be good 1/5
I’ve been a casual player since day 1 and I thought this game was going to be awesome but as of today feb 21/19 I am done. Scopely over the course of the last few months have made this game impossible to play if you don’t want to sink tons of money into this game. Never mind F2P you might as well not even bother and their prices for things in game are ridiculous. I don’t generally mind sinking $3-5 a month on a game as long as there is a benefit but they’ve created an atmosphere in this game where to even advance at all you’d probably need to sink 10xs that amount into it. Starting about two weeks ago (whenever the north star ship was released) I went from being able to at least complete my daily quests with a bit of work but doable to today when I logged in for about 20 min as was completely unable to stay on a mining node for more that 3 min. This game’s environment is super toxic due to the set up and the multitude of alliances and players that are willing to destroy your ships for no reason other than to get a higher number on a ranking list. However if you want a game that will simulate the rage inducing equivalent of sitting in traffic for hours on end then have at it.
Great Potential but falls flat 1/5
This F2P game is great up to a low level. Then it becomes impossible. You are required to mine for everything at a point and the developers have purposely greatly limited the number of these resources and made sure players spend all day smashing each other to barely get anything. Then on top of that after a few days of mining your rewarded with 5-10 of the resources you need after you refine them. With the average cost of things around 300 it becomes mission impossible. You spend more time repairing your ships then anything. I find I log in for a minute max a day just to repair. I hope the developer takes a serious look at the game as it is.
High End STR 5/5
I highly recommend this game! This game has amazing graphics along with gameplay, audio and well balanced in game system. I seen the trailer but never dowloaded it, when I did. I immediately got addicted. Sadly I can’t stick to it because I want to spend money but I can’t. I’ve been playing Strategy games for many years and this is outstanding work.
Good potential but creators are very greedy 2/5
This game has a ton of potential but extremely hard to get past lvl 19 without paying a ton of money. This game is also very poorly balanced between the missions, the ships and the free reward chest given out. The money prices for the items to buy are way too much but if you’re a fan you don’t have a choice but to pay a ton. Too expensive, bad rewards and bad balancing.
Supports and even encourages bullying 1/5
By NOVA UAV Guy
This game started out well enough. Research and build buildings in your own base to grow more powerful and advance levels. Build more advanced ships that have greater power and range. Join teams (alliances) with other people and work together. All well and good...
And then the problems begin. Alliances form that just include the top players from your particular server - the ones that spend thousands (yes - you read it correctly - THOUSANDS) of dollars to build themselves stronger. These alliances then use their power to bully other players in game. I know of several players who stopped playing - not because they didn’t like the game, but because they didn’t like the bullying that was permitted by the logic that the game developers coded.
Of course, much of this could be fixed by the developers if they chose to do so. The game’s logic could look at the power levels of each player (or even ship) to determine what can and can’t be attacked. Instead the developers chose to use a different model which allows more open play and attacks on players. That’s fine if you’re one of those who are willing to spend thousands of dollars, but not acceptable if you aren’t.
And then there are other issues. The developer tries to censor the use of unacceptable language in the in-game chat but their system is poor and incapable of preventing much abuse. And some of the names they allow players to use make this game more appropriately rated for adults. I know I would not allow a child to play this; many others who I play with will not permit their children into the game either.
Overall, this game has potential. When I started playing I would have given it 4 or 5 stars despite many of its bugs. With everything that I’ve seen since I started playing a couple months ago, today I unfortunately cannot give it more than 1 star. I strongly suggest that Apple also review this game, including chat and player names within it, to reconsider its age rating. The current rating of 4+ is not appropriate based on content.
Not worted 1/5
Game with lots of bugs, Very expensive just to play confortable, Players expend thousands of dollars to be middle ranks, top players have spent more than 10k, hey! If you are starttrek fan go ahead an enjoy the graphics and give the money away for a sack of annoying bugs
Do not waste your time. YOU ARE CRAZY if you spend one cent on this weak attempt at an app.
Ahh Star Trek the show about imperialist conquest 1/5
Just stop trying to make Star Trek in to every other terrible hopeless forever war nonsense.
Such wasted potential 3/5
It started as such a genuinely fun game, but in short order you realize that the game caters to the serious spenders and everybody else, even people willing to pay a few hundred a month, can’t compete at all. We all understand it’s a business, unfortunately the developers have failed to realize they are running off everybody but the whales. (Signed somebody who was willing to (and did) invest reasonable amounts of money into your game and gave up).
Don’t Waste Your Time 1/5
This is a bad MMO, popular due to the Star Trek license. Why is it bad? Here’s a run down of just some of the issues;
-Gameplay. Spend your day boringly looking for the resources you need to mine. No bookmarks or system legend exists so you get to waste your time popping onto a planet, waiting for it to load, then checking every mine not already taken to see if it has anything left. Oh, 4 to 6 mines per system simply don’t work, too. Once you’ve found a mine you get to send a ship to it. By the time it gets there someone else has probably taken it. Once you finally do get on a mine someone bigger will come and take it from you.
-Bad, really bad programming. Constant crashes, ships getting stuck, too many bugs to list here.
-Server maintenance timeouts without announcing it prior to it being executed. This means you can be playing it when it goes down. You don’t have a shield up (since you were on when they took it down) you get everything taken from you when it comes back up and you aren’t on.
-Shady devs don’t communicate how many issues there are. They have a “ Known Issues” thread but it only has a few minor bugs listed in it. They don’t communicate all the issues there are unless they are asked directly through a support ticket. This way they can hide exactly how many issues there are (and you get to waste your time doing something that doesn’t even matter in the game since it is broken).
-Poor value for what you get when purchasing premium packs compared to other MMO’s.
No warning on any updates inside the game!!! 1/5
Come on guys!?! Can’t you warn people BEFORE you freeze the game for maintenance?????? My ships were at warp and no warning what so ever!?!? I’m busting my culo to get to level 19!!!! Ughhhhh I just want to cry!!! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
If spending $ is fun, this is the game for you 1/5
The game has a massive amount of bugs still. Your spendings define your skill. Gene would be ashamed of this cash grab. On a lighter note, the game had (no longer has) great potential to be an amazing PVP, base building, space exploration game.
Support with a script and a game with bugs 1/5
Have a level 15 mission spawn in a level 35 area that I won't be able to reach in a very long time. No one else in my alliance had that occur to them. Reached out to support and got a scripted answer. Don't waste time with this game. It's either a time hog or a money hog. And if something goes wrong, support doesn't care.
Star Cash Cow 1/5
Can’t advance without spending your in game currency to upgrade to next level. If you don’t have enough in game currency, then spend your money to get it.
What ever happen to play the game and earn your stuff and not grind which is way to keep playing. BS
Just another pay to win game 1/5
Game was good at beginning now it’s buggy and and a joke. If you want to spend real money on a game hen go ahead but I’m sick of the wallet warriors and devs cheating by hacking the game.
Rip off 1/5
First off don’t believe the 4.5 stars, that is not accurate and I feel is bumped up by the developer. Read reviews, everyone is saying the same thing. The developers obviously don’t care because to fix would be simple but they are only concerned about making money. Whales control the game and attack without restriction. When you do spend money you are systematically wiped clean by players who are impossibly larger than you, understand this is the point of the game for them. There is a limited number of missions and when completed they solely exist to farm others. Basically spending money is the only way to advance but you can’t because unless your on all day and night you will be farmed. There are better games out there, play them
So much potential 1/5
This game starts off great and it doesn’t take much to level up. But you get to a point where it’s almost a necessity to purchase packs in order to advance. It takes forever to upgrade things (I’m talking days). This game is a waste of time in its current state and I hope they improve it.
Avoid this game 1/5
By Squatting Bull
I’ve been playing for a few months now. The deva consistently misrepresent their in app purchases and blow you off when you ask them about it.
Yes this is a “freemium” game that requires significant monetary investment if you wish to pursue the more advanced ships and station upgrades. You go into it knowing that. But the devs have repeatedly lied about the capabilities of their loot packs and ships that you can buy. Instead of fix the problems, they ask for patience but do nothing to fix the issue.
Definitely take your time and money elsewhere.
Terrible idea. 1/5
The game is a great way to occupy your mind in down time. But do yourself a favor and don’t spend any money. Unless you’re ok with dropping $100 and then a few hours later someone attacking and taking the resources you just purchased.
The game is great, BUT when you purchase latinum, say, for 4.99 that price disappears. To advance it will soon cost you ( read carefully) 99.99 dollars! I don’t have money enough to spend that much money on a darned fool game, no matter how good it is. Go buy some fishing gear or something that makes more sense than paying someone that kind of cash so you can play make believe.
Lookin for a buggy time and money sink? 1/5
If so you’ve come to the right place. The app randomly crashes all the time... all the time. The in game rewards are scant and time sensitive... want to maximize your free resources better check in every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day. At around level 18 to 20 you’ll be forced to buy resource packs to move forward at anything more than glacial speed. All the while being randomly attacked by other players who have forked over cash for ships that normally take weeks to unlock and level up.
In short I would not recommend Space FarmVille I mean Star Trek Fleet Command
I’m so done with this game 1/5
By Kalos Thanatos
I love the IP. I love the graphics, the settings and the idea behind it. I’m mostly ok with the fact that you are not a Starfleet officer. I’m ok with the grind for resources as long I don’t get screwed. I’ve even put money into the game. I’m not ok with spending five or six hours of real time mining resources to build up my ships and station, only to have some dipstick blow my ship up and take off with my cargo. If it was a rare thing, I’d understand. Truly. but twice today alone and every time I try to mine something? To hell with that. Fix your game so that people can do stuff in peace, not pieces. Until then, I’m deleting the app.
Bad to worse 1/5
This game has gotten continually worse as time goes on. They nerfed ships earlier in Feb and basically destroyed value I had worked and paid for with packs into certain ships. On top of this they try to add new features but never fix the persistent and frustrating bugs. They are however busy making pointless celebrity and holiday tie ins and continue to try and sucker money from people who love the Star trek franchise. CBS needs to yank this from scopely.
Dont do it 1/5
Dont get this game and be very cautious if you spend real money i spent a little bit of real money and almost everything i bought was gone within 12 hours simply because someone far higher level than me decided to attack my base so they basically stole my money
Don’t do it 1/5
The game itself is not bad, but it forces you to make purchases to keep up with other players. I would be ok with that but buyer beware. I purchased a upgrade package for on of my ships, 100$ only to find out that it did not contain all the pieces needed to actually do an upgrade. Since it could not be applied, resources sat and where eventually raided by higher players. When Scopley was confronted, they simply just said you got what you where supposed to. Shame on them for deceptive practices.
Cool game, kills time.
No options 1/5
There are no options to opt out of any type of pvp action. Nor do they allow you to see who attacked you and where they’re located at for any type of retaliation. I would NOT recommend this game to anyone.
Money Grab 1/5
Played to lvl 16, no way to play this game without spending big cash to be competitive. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. Well, unless you can drop hundreds of dollars for something called uncommon refined crystal among other things. Major waste of last couple of months, I wish the reviews I had seen were truthful.
Shameless Money Grab 1/5
I started like many of the reviewers here trying to F2P and enjoy the game, but the reality is that there are only 14 levels of potential f2p gameplay. If you’re not buying ridiculously OP ships and crew packs, you’re just not going to be able to compete. It’s even designed when you level up to require that you have more materials than your allowed to store. Why? So they can sell you a parsteel or dilithium pack.
Like the look of Star Trek? This has it, and I have to say that graphically it’s pretty decent. When you factor in the constant bugs and the unrealistic advancement requirements, it’s simply not worth it. I’ve uninstalled and moved on, and trust me, you will, too.
Stand still 3/5
By kaine sing
I have had tons of bug problems and other problems and I have spent money but still getting stuck a lot and it’s seems like the game has stalled for the most part for a lot of players. They need to make more missions and be a little more player friendly when u buy packs. If not they will start losing loyal players.
Do you like to spend money? 1/5
This game is 90% grind grind grind. Oh but wait... you will still not be able to progress unless you spend literally hundreds of dollars to get to a mid way point. This game looks cool but it’s a huge time / cash drain. If you’re a trust fund baby maybe you’ll get half way. Have fun.
It’s getting better 4/5
By Mick Moose 980
Since I’ve joined an alliance the game is much more fun. Having help gets things done faster as far as research and building. Still complaining about dead mining spots and ability to recall an accidental warp should be able to recall any time.
What a great way to ruin an amazing franchise. Everything is gated behind an escalating pay model. You spend 5, the next available spend is 10, then 20, then 50. Everything is gated behind these items. Then there’s the broken pay2win ships that completely imbalance the game. Where low level characters demolish people who either bought the last ship or earned their rank.
Shame on CBS for allowing such a pathetic money grab to tarnish the Star Trek name.
Terrible rip off 1/5
Game is ridiculous to do anything, it requires at a minimum $50-$100 and then that will only get you to level 15
Don’t play here,,rip off city 1/5
By not paying any more
The higher levels dominate ,you buy upgrades the higher levels steal all your resources before you can apply them.admin wants you to spend ,then like Majic higher levels rip you off,,stay away,stay away...
Don’t waste your time 1/5
By heywood j simpson
This game was horrible. Slow to respond and lots of technical glitches
