- Summary: Star Trek: Tactical Assault features real-time spaceship combat from the universe of the original Star Trek series.

Both the Federation and Klingon campaign modes feature real-time combat with branching missions and multiple outcomes. With a multitude of paths to choose from, you decide the ultimate outcome of your campaign. Wireless multiplayer mode allows you to test your skills and tactical maneuvers against those of your friends. Successful gameplay relies on strategic movement and effective use of a ship's weapons and shields. [Bethesda Softworks]… Expand
Sep 9, 2011This game I simply have to grade on a curve. Let's face it. The vast majority of 'Trek games out there just plain suck. The ones that are any good at all usually have massive, game-killing flaws, making for very unhealthy gamer - game relationships marked by lots of abuse from both sides frequently unending due to sheer bloody-mindedness (**coughcoughbridgecommanderhackwheeze**) originating from a diehard fanbase. For a trek game, it's not bad overall. The plot is okay, the missions are challenging but not stupid, and the actual combat system, while not perfect, is at least playable. Once you can play the Klingon campaign, there's an option that allows you to change your controls on the touch screen from English to tlhIngan'Hol pIqaD that appears to be Orkandian-canon friendly. On the flip-side, it seems that it suffers from instability, much like Bridge Commander. I had it freeze on me more than a few times playing through. Ships with cloaking have a serious advantage against you, since they can shoot at you for several seconds before you can even target them. However, when you play with a ship that cloaks, the AI ships seem to have no problems targeting you very quickly and pumping your nacelles full of cohesive nadion pulses. Shield regeneration seems to be very illogical, being very slow and far too brief in combat. Sometimes, the shields will partially be restored when warping system to system, but sometimes not, and a few times I actually lost shield integrity in transit. Topping all that off is the fact that Klingon shields don't restore at all, adding yet another layer of difficulty to the Klingon campaign (no wonder they always seem to be so ticked off). If you're a fan, you'll probably enjoy yourself, but otherwise, don't bother, as for you, I would rate it a 4 instead.… Expand
Mar 10, 2012Only a little above average. Really shallow gameplay nad very repetitive missions. Quite good, but not breathtaking graphics. The soundtrack I cannot even memorize. Maybe the fact that I'm not Star Trek fan is the reason. If you're actual fan of the universe, you cann add a point or two to my score.… Expand
