Summary: Loved the idea of a Nintendo DS game where I can play missions fighting Klingons, Romulans, and Pirates. There was one problem with it though, it was way too short. I thought it was very cool they included a campaign of Klingon missions as well. It was fun to fly around cloaked and then suprise someone.
Summary: This is an okay game, but it has a few flaws, so how about I lay down the pros and cons list: The pros are that this game has great graphics for a DS game. It has an original story. It makes good use of the touch screen. And it's very challenging. The cons are that it's very difficult to move your starship any faster than a snail. And I forget which controls do what, from time to time.
Summary: I was hoping to finally have a handheld version of "Starfleet Command" from the PC, and I got it... sort of. The "feel" of the game is very similar, but a lot of the extra goodies that really differentiated between ships and races got streamlined out. No drones, no tractors, none of the race-specific exotic weapons, and only Federation or Klingon to choose from. All right, enough bashing. The controls are good and the action is fast.
Summary: After reading the review in Nintendo Power (they gave it a 4 out of 10), I was sceptical about this game. Deciding to give it a chance, I discovered that they really messed up on the rating. As the title implies, this is tactical. For those live action gamers; don't worry. It's not turn based tactics, it's real-time. Rather than flying straight at the enemy and blasting them,though, you have to hit them strategically, and time your shots to lower their shields.

Summary: This game, for a handheld, is an excellent title for Star Trek fans. Before I begin with my praise however, I will cover the games defects. There are a number of bugs and freezes that really should have been screened by quality assurance before this game had a chance to release. The notable bugs are in the Klingon campaign, where I have suffered two freezes and found a break in the crew banter whereing I hailed and scanned two ships that I had already destroyed.
Summary: I won't comment on the accuracy of the Star Trek canon in this game but if you are considering purchasing it consider the following: This game is not particularly stragetic in nature, you serve as the captain of a starship and you engage in intergalatic dogfights with multiple allies and multiple bogies. These battles are conducted in a two-dimensional environment rather than a true aerial environment aka there is no vertical plane only horizontal navigation.
Summary: Star Trek Tactical Assault is brilliant!When you furst get it your a bit confused what controls to use like how to fire,how to change ship etc....But once youv'e figured it out the game is great.The game is quite hard but it's very good to have a challenge.Yes the graphics are very bad but other than that Star Trek Tactical Assault is excellent.I recommmend you buy it.
