Just 2 posts above yours is a member who says the new movies feel like TOS again, so this is clearly your minority opinion.
The only thing I can say to that is that anyone who claims to have been a fan of TOS and says that J.J. "Michael Bay" Abrams' films "feel like TOS" are lying, and they either have not seen TOS or they have not seen Abrams' films (or they have not seen either).
I've seen TOS movies and episodes continuously since I was around 12. I'm 45 now.
I have to say that this is the first time I've seen these crewmembers this young. Not to mention, a totally new timeline, backstories (especially Kirk and Spock,) and completely different set of circumstances for Starfleet...
The crew is 6 years younger at the start of their first deep space mission than the crew in the original timeline. So naturally, things are going to "feel" different.
Change is good!
