Got a BEST BUY card from my folks for Christmas, and was planning to buy Star Trek Legacy... Does anyone know when Lost Planet is scheduled for release? All xbox.com says is: TBD. I would wait a couple weeks if it is coming soon, but I would like to get Legacy as well.
All Legacy players please chime in. I know you FPS and TPS guys will say Lost Planet. And I'm having a blast on Gears. But the Trekkie in me would like a good strategic challenge.

Lost Planet: 1/12/07 (or 12/1/07...in European speak)

I like Star Trek but I am no Trekkie so my opinion is skewed when I say there is no way that I would pick Legacy over Lost Planet .

Lost Planet is awesome, I'd hold out for it. I played the demo at Comicon and downloaded both demos on Live. Its going to be awesome!

On a side note, wheres the best place to pre-order if at all?

I'm a bit of a trekkie so I'm going to say .....wait for lost planet.

Honestly, it looks like it's going to rock. And how many trek games are actually good anyways?

Trek Legacy isn't that great. If you're a trekkie you'll LOVE it, otherwise you're probably better off waiting for Lost Planet.

Until there's a MMORPG star trek game, take the alternative. Lost Planet is good fun from what I've played. Plus, I have a deep hatred for aliens in video games. They think their technology is going to protect them from 12 gauge shotguns and it never does! Cosmic idiots if you ask me...

Lost Planet just doesn't grab me (and I don't need another shooter, even a good one), so I'm sticking with Legacy. At least it has the virtue of being different and has nerd appeal.

Yea, I don't get all the Lost Planet hype. It did not seem like anything special to me.

I liked Legacy OK enough, I suppose, but if I had to do it over again, I'd go with a rental instead of a purchase. There's no mid-mission save (or even fracking checkpoints!) and as far as I can tell no way to go back and re-play any of the missions without starting the whole $!@#ing campaign over. Also, you never actually get to play as Sisko ... and you don't get to use Picard or Janeway nearly enough.
