Is anybody still playing Legacy for the 360?

I'm wondering if anyone still plays this game for the 360 on xbox live or just in general.

I love the game despite all of it's glaring faults. I do wish the mods made for the PC version could be adapted for use in the 360 version. Would add so much extra life to the game.

I'm thinking of renewing my xbox live membership now that i own this game but only if there's going to be people to play against. For those that do play, is there usually a number of people to match against?


p.s. anyone know where I can buy a copy of Armada 1 and 2 for PC and whether they work on Win Vista?

Re: Is anybody still playing Legacy for the 360?

I gave it a try online, but I never bothered actually getting out of the lobby & into the match as I changed the disc too GRAW, but I know from checking the friends list of one of the people in that lobby that he had about 20 people on his list that showed they'd played the game recently.

I wouldn't use Legacy as the way to justifying whether to get your xbox live membership renewed as there's a "LOT !" better games than Legacy out there.

As for getting a copy of Armada, I would look at torrent sites as the game's almost impossible to find in shops & from what I've heard second hand copies are very pricey on sites like E-Bay. The game dose fully work on Vista as its never crashed with me.

When I played the game about a year ago, I tried playing it online but almost never found anyone else. And that was a year ago.

Re: Is anybody still playing Legacy for the 360?

That's too bad. I kind of like the game and see promise for it's multiplayer aspects.

I long for the day that we get a Trek game that is good enough to gather a large fanbase and lots of people to paly against (and is actually a great game).

As for Armada, I'm going to continue to keep my eyes out for it. Some pawn shop somewhere in town must have a copy lying around.

Re: Is anybody still playing Legacy for the 360?

This was one of the first games I got when I got my XBox last year as I am a big Trek nerd. I played the through the single-player campaign and enjoyed it a lot, although it could have done with some cutscenes rather than just 'voices over ships'.

I tried to jump on for some multiplayer but didn't find it satisfying. The game now sits discarded but I keep it around in case I want to play some space combat sometime.

I played through the game once on the PC. That was enough. I didn't care for it. Bridge Commander is way better.

Re: Is anybody still playing Legacy for the 360?

I like it. I am in the process of playing through it again. I got a free Xbox gold 30-day when my box red-ringed so I shall likely play a bit of Legacy Live in the near future with it.

Re: Is anybody still playing Legacy for the 360?

I still play skirmish mode from time to time, especially if I can play on my buddy's high def, man the game looks good that way. I check for other players online from time to time but have never found one. Next time I plan on doing it, I may post a message here with the time so that available people can have a game.

I'll play you when you do (when I activate my gold subscription.)

I tried the demo and really didn't enjoy it very much.

Armada 1 isn't too bad to find, with some patience you should be able to get the disc for under $20. Armada 2, however, is much harder to come by. SFC3 and Armada 2 are probably the rarest Trek PC games, with BOTF, BC, and EF2 coming in behind them in rarity.
I don't have any experience with Vista.

To be honest I have never had all that much trouble getting Vista to work with any of my games. The original Max Payne being the exception. BC, EF2, Armada all worked without any issues.
