  • 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.

  1. Star Trek DAC isn't great, but it isn't awful. It's fun, but only for a while.

    Originally this was something you could have a few hours of fun with. Now, we reckon you can extend those fun times to a few days.
  3. This is a game that will likely sit on my PS3 hard drive... forgotten until I need the disc space for something else.
  4. It just isn't very fun. [Mar 2010, p.115]
  5. 57
    While fans will certainly glean some enjoyment, everyone else should steer clear. [Issue#189, p.91]
  6. Blandly go where no Star Trek game has gone before in this unexciting multiplayer shoot-'em-up.

    I can't believe they took one of the coolest SF franchizes and created a glorified 2D asterorids game. The game play is very 'asteroid' like. You fly around in a restricted 2D environment getting shot at. Expand
