    For Star Trek fans... this may be the single best reason to own a Nintendo DS. Command 5 different Federation & Klingon based starships in a story driven - tactical heavy - starship combat game.

    But like so many iterations of the franchise(Star Wars fans think they've got it bad), Tactical Assault ultimately disappoints. [Dec. 2006, p.110]
  2. Tactical Assault is not a typical strategy game, and the original design feels fresh when you first start playing. But it's also a one-trick pony, boiling down to the same basic maneuvers and slow-paced combat. It also horribly overlooks its license.
  3. Although the game contains an interesting tactical set-up and numerous races to choose from (Klingons included), the game just isn't fun to play. Not only is it unnecessarily complicated, but also slow and sloppy.
