I bought into the hype and the appeals at my inner-geek. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting, maybe something with a little more role play action.
I was all jazzed up, I was going to be a Red Shirt, enjoy watching the drama unfold trying not to be killed, all the while making some space buddies for life. Judging the Captain for not seeing how very in love they are with their Science Officer and vise versa. What I got was repeative clicking, and boredom. I can't be bothered with the inane lives of real people, why did I think I would enjoy this?
I understand that that's the point, the commentary the game is making on FB and Twit etc. but a whole game on it? Where actions have no conquences, nothing changes, and a very real sense of same sht different day. I use video games to get away from that.
I was expecting more actions away from Spacebook, and that was my own fault, it had been on my wishlist so long that I turned it into the game I wanted not the game it was. I wanted to experience life on a space ship for the cannon fodder, all I got was life on Facebook.
I got the game on sale and would recommend doing so too if you are going to go for it. I didn't even bother saving the game, that's how sure I am that I'm not going to play it again.
Just be prepared for monotony, because that's the point. That's the game.
