Basic things don’t work 2/5
Music toggles, for example. I keep turning the music off and it doesn’t stick. So many bugs in this game just like that. It’s lazy development
Base Builder 4/5
Pros: The ui is smooth, I like the missions
Cons: this reminds me of game of war, base builder open PVP, base constantly attacked and resources stolen.
I quit the game, the Griefers just don’t make it worth to play. I relocated three times, every time There were just more Griefers waiting
Real game, but... 2/5
*Progression is super slow, even for a game that requires some in game purchases.
*PVP is very unbalanced and has taken all joy out of the game. I would have loved to have reached a higher level before PvP was opened up or have an option to select a PvP server when I created my account...
*Setting don’t save. This is a no brained, I turn of sound or music, it should stay off until I turn it back on. But every time I load the game these setting are reset and it pisses me off.
*mission balancing: I start a mission, but the end npc scaled way out of my range. I have very little to do besides grind until I’m high enough to kill it.
*Leveling: with any other MMO, I gain experience and at some point I gain a level. This game requires me to level my operations which requires no experience and zero skill.
*Gameplay and design overall are fun but tuning is way off.
Star Wars Battle Front 2 pay to win format with a Star Trek Twist 1/5
Fun game at first but then you hit level 10 and become faced with the pay to win model. Yes you can do everything with out paying but it takes a serious grind. You have to mine materials to progress but that’s when the players who spent 50 to 70 dollars come across and set you back to square one. The game really needs more protection for lower level or weaker ships. Game reminds me heavily of Star Wars Battle Front 2.
Want to bring my fleet to a battle. 4/5
By C. Hudson
Good game but wish we could take multiple ships to a single battle. Sometimes I’m up against a more powerful opponent and need some backup. Unless that’s something that happens later.
Way too buggy. 1/5
The devs must fix the issues in the game. I’m enjoying it but I also feel like I’m fighting the game more then the enemies.
Now with the spam in the chat and no word about it, I pay quit playing till something is done.
I could go more stars but the game has bugs, for instance I can’t visit the planets nor mine nor travel because of a bug freezing the window. Limiting game play
My issue is that when you research and build the only way out is the back button.
Highly addictive 5/5
Lots of fun, I would like more tutorial for beginners
Fun game, but a little buggy. 4/5
By Jake Coltrane
I’ll be happy to change it to 5 stars when all the bugs get worked out. There are obvious pay-walls, but all of these command/conquer games have them so you can’t fault it for that. All in all, a fresh take on the game format though. Overall enjoyable.
Good game, but...pvp is pay to play 2/5
This game has great depth with areas to explore, missions, research, building, pie, and pop. However, the pvp is over the top. I've played many pvp/mmo games, but if you are not in the top 5% of players forget it! You will spend 30 minutes repairing ships the were out for 2 minutes. I've spent $25 in hopes of being able to catch up, but that did nothing. If a player is slighting ahead of you, he can kill you over and over with no chance of game play. I am easily in the top 20-25% and spend the majority of my game play in frustration over being camped in multiple areas. Just Ridiculous!
Pretty good 4/5
Could be better! When I turn the music off it won’t stay off. A lot of missions won’t show up in the galaxy hud only been play for day haven’t seen much else yet.
Good game 5/5
Awesome game! Easy to get on and start upgrading or continue where you left off.
Lots of things going on 3/5
There are a lot of things happening in this game and there isn’t a whole lot of specific tutorial to learn from. Also, the control can be a bit wonky. The jumping from facility to facility to track down requirements is nice, but having to click the arrow to get off a facility gets old quick.
I love the game I like the quest but I can’t seem to collect from my parasteel Generators for some reason.It just says that they’re full but I can’t do anything.Everything else in the game is perfect the music is perfect the atmosphere is perfect just the one little bag of collecting parasteel.My compliments to the developers who worked on the game .Keep up the good work I hope you can work out the small issue.
I want to like it, but... 3/5
The game looks great visually. I appreciate the minimal micro transactions, and I really like the music in it. That said, I’d really rather it not be free to play with micro transactions and just pay for a full game. The time for progression is much too long. It’s gets boring grinding the non-faction aligned ships to the point where I’m just not enjoying the game. To add to that, the battles are all the same. No differences in weapons between ships, it’s all red torpedo-esq balls. Adding a variety of attacks to the ships or at least different attacks between ships would make it more interesting. All in all the game progresses to slowly to hold my interest, and that’s really unfortunate because I can see the time and love that went into crafting it.
Glitchy Pay to Win 2/5
By Dees Reviews
There are tons of glitches that don’t ever seem to end. One of them is that mining some resources in certain systems can be hit or miss. They may visually look like one resource, but you end up getting another one.
As for the pay to win, there are some people who paid $50 for a high powered ship who go around through the mining systems just blasting everyone away. I am more than halfway in building the ship without paying, but it appears that I may get there if I spend three or four days upgrading my ships to go on the missions that don’t get incrementally harder. Enemies go from being easily dispatched to impossible until you spend a ton of time researching, mining (while hoping you don’t get attacked, and if you do, it just slows everything down), and not much else.
I love Star Trek and our alliance in the game is pretty good, but this is becoming tiresome. The responses from the developers to bad reviews has also been a turnoff as they don’t actually have much to say about the content of the original review.
Greedy follow up 1/5
If you don’t want to pay to play prepare for long hours of waiting for upgrade. The higher you go the longer upgrades take, you start with minutes, then hours, then days. Don’t want to wait pay pay pay, or boring boring boring game play.
Pay to play 1/5
By wiz sailor
Cant advance without paying. You going to get eaten by players who paid to buy expensive ships. And dont buy the 100% shield ,attack or build speed bonus they dont work. Your ship damage is still the same.
hmm, i don’t think so 2/5
The moment i hit level 10 someone hit my station and bam my dilithium is gone, not playable due to all research requiring dilithium, in order to increase ship stats they must be researched. thus rendering the game unplayable.
Good game 5/5
By Making the kids cry
Fun to play.
Fun but repetitive! 4/5
By JW Perrin
Fun but repetitive, and pay to win.
Not bad, but basically a game for griefers. 1/5
By G. Harbican
In short while a neat concept, ends up being just matter of PvP, where some players have dumped a bunch on money into it just so they can wipe out the players who just want to play the storyline.
Unless you also dump a bunch of money into the game, you get to a point where you simply can’t progress once you reach Lv 15.
Prepare to be bullied 2/5
While fun at first the game will give you a simple choice be a bully or get bullied. The choice comes about because there are certain resources you have to mine. Now while there are ships you can build for this you can also just fly around blow up other mining ships and take their resources. There is no way to protect the mining ship by assigning an escort. You would have to sit there and watch the ship, for hours. So if you want to beat people up and steal their lunch money, play this game, otherwise avoid it.
One final note the game is still pretty glitchy. You routinely have to back out of the game because it freezes up.
Egregious pay to play 1/5
Unless you feel like shelling out a lot of money, or enjoy getting bullied by the folks who DID pay, I recommend avoiding this one. The main goal appears to be to seek out extremely rare resource nodes so that you can be promptly killed by someone who paid to get a more powerful ship. There is no way to fulfill several of the quests without mining resources, and mining is an immediate invitation to be killed by “n00bKru$hr69” or some equally scintillating name.
Unbalanced Game unless you like Ganking people MUCH lower level 1/5
By E. Shumpert
Regularly get killed by ships/players at least 10 levels higher. Come on guys. Put some level limits. How does this help gameplay?
Pay to win. Another ark of war game. 2/5
Yeah. Had high hopes. Nevermind that.
If you're willing to sink a lot of money into this game, then this is for you.
If you were hoping for a star trek space explortion game with interesting quests and missions. Don't bother.
It's rife with players who dominate through bullying and paying their way to the top rather than actual effort.
Such great potential. The pvp needs to be fixed. Reporting players should actually be effective.....
A lot of missions require mining various minerals etc. The issue? It takes roughly 1hr to mine about 600 of anything when the mission requests up to 8000.
So you have to sit there, for an hour to make sure nobody is going to demolish your ship. Because a lvl 12 player can attack your ship, even if you're a measly lvl 9.
Literally the first event that is hosted for a chance at one of the ships is an automatic cash grab.
I spent 3 days grinding away at missions to collect 30 out 75 shards needed for a rare ship.
Whereas if you're willing to spend over $50 then you don't need to worry about it. You get all the blueprints with a one time fee.
Giving the bird to literally every other player who just wants to enjoy themself.
Horrible take on Star Trek 1/5
Like many I was suckered by the flashy ads for this game. I thought it would be an epic Star Trek game of exploration and combat. Turns out the ad is not representative of the game. It is also not representative of what Star Trek represents, which is cooperation, respect and a better future. This game is straight up representative of the Mirror Universe of Star Trek. Very early on you become subject to PvP bullying and this ruins things. This game try’s to be a role playing game and a war game at the same time. As a rpg it is a fail. As a get beat up by more powerful players who revel in preying on others game, it is a success. This game gives no option for those that just want to play by themselves and do PvE.
Actual responses from Customer Support in response to my feedback concerning the predatory PvP.
“I do understand why you're upset. It is not fun when you're doing your best but others keep bringing you down. However, We intended to deliver competitiveness in all aspects of the game. We'd like to make sure that all players are challenged. This is designed in such a way to keep our players always curious and the game interesting.
I know you can step up from this. We encourage players to have it in them the initiative to explore more options and be creative in their strategies throughout the Star Trek Universe.”
“I know how it feels, playing the game wherein you have to constantly keep an eye or your guards up at all times. However, it's a norm for such games, because you may never know who will attack you next. But I will be noting down your sentiment as feedback and I will forward this to our team for consideration. Rest assured that we will look into it, but bear in mind that we won't be able to confirm or guarantee if any changes will be implemented in the future.”
I deleted this game and if I could, I would give this game 0 stars.
Grind Heavy 1/5
Fun til about lvl 9 then nothing but the same thing over and over and over. Grind is the name of the game. Plus you can’t attack an enemy with two ships. Gets real boring after lvl 11.
You will spend all your time repairing your ship 2/5
The game itself is fun at the beginning, following various story lines and running errands (though it would be nice to know who you will be working for before you accept a mission or a way to delete a mission you don’t want after you take it). After you get to a certain level though fairly soon into the game you will find you are spending all your real time and your in-game resources repairing your destroyed ships. A big part of the game is mining resources, but if you leave your ship somewhere for just a couple minutes someone who must have paid real money for a bigger stronger ship will come along and destroy your ship. Which then you need to repair for 10 to 30 minutes of real time depending on how strong your ship is. I do not normally spend real money on games but I did in this game for a resource pack and a crew pack because I was enjoying the game but now I have deleted the game. I was level 14 when I got fed up and at this level the game has you increased the defenses of your base. This tells me that players will be able to attack other bases once I had hit some level. Just what I want, to be spending all my time repairing my ships and my base.
Download, download some more, open and wait for more stuff to download ... then wait another 5 minutes for the game to just crash and kick me out. Rinse and repeat.
Game is broken 1/5
Zero ability to contact devs about glitches & ability not to even be able to play. Their Facebook page is one giant list of complaints. Do not spend here! If you did report the fraud to PayPal, your bank, & Apple AppStore.
Pay to Play Players Gang Up 1/5
By Matthew F
The pay to play players gang up on the free to play players. The problem is this makes it almost impossible for the free to play players to gain any experience and level up. So far only 4 hour peace shields are available, but are only obtained by paying for a pack of something. Until the developers curb bullying, this game will not be fun. Also definitely not the spirit of Star Trek.
It was fun... 1/5
From the start it was a fun game then it got to be a lot of being blown up by pay to win people. And a lot of time waiting to be able to do anything again. Mining you get blown up. Just trying to complete missions you get blown up by pay to win people. The more you level up the longer you have to wait to be able to get blown up again. If you like waiting. Then this “game” is for you. If you like shelling out your money for this then you are wasting your money. But again it’s a Scopely game so I should have known it was a waste of an actual game that could be played by people who didn’t have deep pockets. Good luck.
Fun but frustrating. 2/5
I enjoy the built world tremendously. Star Trek feel. Bunches of worlds. Lots of areas to search. Level up ships and bases. It’s all good fun.
Where the game becomes frustrating is there isn’t an “optional” pvp. It’s an open world game and it’s hard to enjoy when some one comes over and destroys my mining ship for the hell of it. Or higher level ships blow my combat ship up when I am trying to complete levels. I literally just want the pve portion of the game. Would pay money here and there for improvements and events, but the non optional pvp is going to drive me to leave. Hopefully this will be addressed in an update. Because there are many players who feel the same way I do.
Just make pvp optional. Please
Star Trek Fleet Command 5/5
Best starship MMO available, hands down! Simply amazing!
You’ll hit the wall quickly... 3/5
Great game for Trekkies... Good graphics, interesting missions, fun getting to “choose your path”... If you’re looking to keep playing for free, you’ll hit a wall pretty quickly. You won’t be able to advance missions or upgrade items with starting to buy things. Bottom line is that you’ll get stuck and not be able to advance - without breaking out the credit card.
Good game but 2/5
Constant bombardment of a website to go to to get “free” in game currency that then pushes you into multiple vpn apps and malaware ads.. If you download DO NOT FALL FOR IT!
So promising, so disrespectful. 2/5
I have dropped mad money on this thing in a week. Like, stupid, god I hope my wife doesn’t find out level of money. And I am still scared about turning lvl 10 and getting destroyed by an 11 year old with her mom’s credit card.
For the amount of money that’s being dropped we should expect several things including:
- a recognition that the story writing is consistently solid and immersive despite the constraints.
- a recognition that it never gets old clicking on the ship manage tab while warping, or using AR to blow your 2 year old’s space obsessed mind.
- a recognition that the ridiculous Pay2Win vibe goes completely against what the Federation stands for and is so short sighted as to damage the long term viability of the brand for thousands of families
- an immediate correction to the exorbitant wait times.
Good Game (Pay-to-win) 1/5
I love the game so far. The only thing is there is a pay to win feel to it and plus wait times take forever. Would give 5 stars if wait times were less and a pay to win aspect wasn’t soo obviously present
More explore 4/5
Less war, more explore. The game is great those
Safe- for now 1/5
By Scopely is bad
So far it’s a good game with minimum pay to win and lots of things to do, but only because it’s been out for a day and everyone is the same rank and stuff and there’s nothing TOO pay to win (at the moment at least, considering this is a Scopely game.) And i’ve lost faith in Scopely as they are extremely unresponsive and have been censoring me on their forums and ignoring my emails. I’m serious i have proof. BUT this game seems pretty good for a start but i guarantee they’re going to be rolling out $50 loot crates anytime now. Character rarity is 3 star max and so are ships but you can guarantee when you max them out next week they’ll release 4 stars that completely shadow your characters. Did i mention when you roll a loot box you don’t get the character, you get fragments, and to get say, spock or kirk, you need 100, and with about 3 fragments per pull, well, have fun buddy. did i also mention the chances of getting the fragments are 5%? Yup you read that right. But, i digress, it is pretty good right now but again that’s only because they don’t have much of a pay to win aspect, YET. I’m just glad they can’t censor my review on apple store!
Not even a month since the games been released and they’re already selling a virtual ship for $50 that’s rarer and more powerful than any ship until you hit 3* ships! Don’t bother!
Bring your credit card 2/5
By Tim the Tuna
The game starts off well. Lots to do such as missions, mining, and exploring. Once you progress to around level 8 to 10, you encounter PtW players who are severely overpowered. There is no was to defend against their whims of destruction. Beware the Jellyfish!
Simple, but fun 4/5
Quick caveat: It seems like it’s going to turn into a micro transaction shitfest at endgame and there prob won’t be any change of competing on leaderboards without RL money...
BUT the game is enjoyable so far after the first week. It has combat that’s even more automated than Eve (for those who have played that), but without the massive customization and specialization beforehand. But every choice being a good one is pretty par for the Mobile course. Def a nice time waster
No balance 1/5
By Lost its way
I actually like PvP games. This isn’t a “bullies!” review and it’s not against developers needing spenders to earn their paychecks.
The issue with this game is that there’s no balance at all. Pretty much immediately they put out a $50 ship that’s so much more powerful than anything else the game was rendered instantly pointless.
Get a mission. Try to complete it. As soon as you leave your base someone many times more powerful wipes you out. Repair your ship for half an hour. Rinse and repeat until you’re out of resources.
If that sounds fun, jump in. Just be ready to buy the $50 ship every time they put one out. So far, I’d guess you’ll need to budget at least $100 a month just to be able to spend 5 minutes on it at a time.
If not, go find a game with some semblance of balance.
Great work in progress 5/5
Very good game with great potential. Everyone is learning including the devs its needs improvement but it functions well. Give it a try.
Love it 5/5
I’m a nerd for Star Trek this game was designed well i love it
No sanctioning system 1/5
I am not going to mention anything of bugs and p2w system, as it is common for new started games and I see that developers are addressing those problems.
However, there is a huge problem about who is allowed to speak what in this game, and half of the galaxy chat is filled with PG rated insults. There are players that insult me and numerous other people personally while we simply point out his rude behavior is unacceptable. If STFC continues to ignore and give no consequences about personal insults on a regular basis, this game should be rated PG and placed under investigation by the App Store for reapproval.
The blocking system does not work, if these words are allowed to be seen by other child, they may imitate the bullying behavior. The consequences on this is huge and can be a subject for class-C lawsuit.
Great game with great feel 5/5
So far the game has been a blast! It has a great feel of the Star Trek universe. You can be Starfleet, Klingon or Romulan. I think you can even be independent. Graphics are nice but I would have liked better graphics in battles.
Great Game, just wish they had classic ships 4/5
Enjoying the game so far, just wish they had classic style ships, and I wish also that you had the option to be one of the main factions from the get go. Lastly, I think they make ships too hard to acquire. In a game called fleet command, it would be nice to have a fleet. Otherwise the story is engaging, and the layout is pretty nice.
