  • Summary: Star Trek: D-A-C allows fans to pitch battles between Starfleet and the Romulan Empire. Up to 12 players can compete in thrilling team combat. There are three game play modes - single player, online multiplayer and online co-op. For each mode, there are three different game types - Team Deathmatch, Assault and Conquest. Players can now choose from four ship types for each faction, including the new U.S.S. Enterprise featured in the "Star Trek" film. Each ship - the powerful Flagship, the aggressive Fighter, the nimble Bomber and the all-new Support Frigate - offers its own unique capabilities for players to master and manipulate as they fight for victory. The Support Frigate allows players to heal friendly ships and easily target enemy escape pods. New gameplay updates in Star Trek: D-A-C for PlayStation Network include variable AI difficultly settings, customizable goals that allow players to set game time limits and number of kills needed to win, improved mechanics for capturing control points in Conquest games, and host migration, which will allow games to continue even if the host player disconnects.

    Star Trek D-A-C definitely benefits from the inclusion of the single-player Survival mode. The multiplayer modes were all that were available when the game was first released on XBLA earlier this year, and the package feels more robust now.
  2. It’s like a browser game with improved graphics. The upside-down look was a bad choice, everything except the survival mode get boring quite fast. So it’s just the hunt for a new high score or rank. Boring.
  3. Blandly go where no Star Trek game has gone before in this unexciting multiplayer shoot-'em-up.
  4. There are far more refined arcade offerings out there than this shallow use of a big-name license. [Feb 2010, p.62]
  5. Why must Star Wars get all the good games? [Jan 2010, p.102]
  6. In which parallel universe does a stinking top-down shooter become the right choice? [Issue#28, p.56]

    Great graphics, sound and game all together. The multiplayer is a blast and survival mode is stupendous. The controls are solid and yet simple. If you're a fan of the series this is a must have. Collapse
