Contrary to reviews out there if you enjoy anyone of the star trek eras I recommend this game. The complaint of the step learning curve about this games goes to show that those that reviewed this game haven't played any strategy game in the last 10 years. They do not bombard you with every contol in one mission but introduce more and build upon what was taught in the previous missions. I have been playing the 360 version and the controller with contextual menus works just fine and the fleet combat is fun. I had more intricate controls in GRAW.
