I have: one unopened Collector's Edition box of Star Trek Online. This is what happens when people give gifts without thinking.
I have played the "free demo" part of the game. My impression: space is pretty and fun, ground combat is badly animated and sucks.
So now I wonder: should I ebay the box or should I try STO out? I have no faith in Cryptic: I played Champions Online a bit, it started as a massive fail and since evolved into moderate fail. All reviews that I've read are from 2009 and early 2010, so I don't know if anything changed. But most reviews agreed that once you get past the space eye candy, the game is boring, grindy and repetitive (moreso than a regular MMO).
Anyone got experience with it?
