I think this review pretty much sums it up.

One point they don't mention is the myriad of bugs that still need fixing.

So you have never seen a bad review of anything, film, book etc, tried it and thought they don't know what they are talking about.

You would have a point if just about everyone wasn't giving this game bad reviews...

I love the game but I know it isn't worth anything higher than a 6. I wonder if most reviewers are judging the game from the tutorial+first few missions, if so I can certainly see where the hate is coming from.

A lot of my favourite music, movies and books got bad reviews from everyone doesn't mean they are right. I still enjoy them.

soooo does this invalidate the review somehow?

I'm Cmdr 8 and can't see how this would change the review...

Oh, I see, you must be one of those that blasted through to RA in 3 days. Apparently, I must be missing the end game content and drastic shift in gameplay that is only available to RA ranks..... puh-leaze.

I think you're just a fanboi that can't look @ STO objectively.

Indeed....complete agreement.

However I must say I think perhaps pointing out all the bad reviews is just not going to do anything at this time because put simply they are all saying the same thing. I think Cryptic are well aware of it now as the survey shows and we should perhaps start suggesting ways to improve the game within the constraints of the current engine mechanics.

Just my opinion

Haha harsh but fair!

We all know this game has the flaws this review mentioned and a fair few more. I'd say Cryptic got off lightly with the IGN review.

'Passable' is about right. It's a long way from a game I would recommend to a friend, even a hard-core Trekkie.
