  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Star Trek: D-A-C is a fast-paced, top-down space shooter inspired by the new motion picture. This pick-up and play game allows you and your friends to choose starships (from a list that includes the all-new U.S.S. Enterprise) and battle it out online. Enlist in Starfleet or join the Romulan Empire as you battle with up to 11 friends in game play modes including Solo Play, Online Versus, and Online Co-op. Command the powerful Flagship, the nimble Fighter or the devastating Bomber, each with their own unique capabilities. Choose your side, fire your weapons, boldly go where no man has gone before. Three game play modes: In single-player, practice against A.I. bots to become an expert captain. Jump into online multiplayer, where twelve players (six per team) compete in intense online battles. Team up with friends to combat in space in online co-op. Three game types: Team Deathmatch lets teams go head-to-head in a winner-takes-all fight to the finish. In Assault, teams must protect and conquer control points in space. In Conquest, teams take turns trying to dominate or defend a sector of space. Three ship classes: Each faction has the powerful Flagship, the nimble Fighter, and the devastating Bomber, each providing unique capabilities in combat. [Paramount] Expand

  1. Too few maps on offer and a shallow single player mode does this game no favours, thankfully though if you have a few friends online this is a fun space shooter that looks stunning.
  2. While the game is fun, the lack of multiplayer opponents quickly diminishes the experience. Anyone who has a group of friends willing to pay 800 Microsoft Points to play the game, will definitely enjoy the experience.
  3. 70
    D-A-C is a fun title that would have faired better at a lower price point due to the lack of content and overall mediocre feel.
  4. 50
    With friends or smart online players, D-A-C can provide a couple hours of mindless fun, but it just doesn't provide any reason to keep playing beyond that.
  5. If a download code for this game came in the form of a sticker at the bottom of your brand new Mr. Spock glass you paid three dollars for at Burger King, it would be an easy recommendation for a thirty-minute whirl on your Xbox. Since it actually costs the “Microsoft Points” equivalent of ten of your hard-earned dollars it can only be recommended that you take that cash down to Burger King and get yourself a #11 combo… with a Star Trek glass.
  6. A license squandered on a game which would have been no different with the Trek taken out. [Aug 2009, p.103]
  7. Despite quality graphics and sound and a responsive control system, there just isn't anything here to make Star Trek DAC worth playing.

    While not a very deep game, it's entertaining enough to play with a friend. You basically use different ship classes to destroy enemies, which is easier when you find the type of ship that fits your style. I would use the biggest one with long range guns while my buddy would use the fast, smaller ships. Watch out for the bombers! Expand

    I really hate this game. With boring gameplay and barely any difference between the two teams this game is really boring to play. If you thought it could not get worse your wrong because I've seen Star Trek and this is not it. Last I checked Star Trek was not about the federation and romulans fighting each other in a war. Also the three modes are death match assault and conquest (yeah that's what DAC stands for) the only goods are the soundtrack and the cool escape pods when your ship is blown up Expand
