Reviewed: Star Trek: Tactical Assault
Producer: Bethesda Softworks
Required System:  PSP, Nintendo DS
Overall Rating:
Author: Michael Ahlf
Date: November 16th, 2006


For a long while, Star Trek gamers had nothing to show for their love of Star Trek. Most of the games based on Star Trek had been bad titles, with quality declining quite a bit between the "good old days" of 25th Anniversary Edition and the modern offerings like Star Trek: Armada and Voyager: Elite Force, both decent games in their own right, but lacking something when it came to the Star Trek universe. There was also the little problem of the decline of the series in general, which even had Activision (who had acquired exclusive game release rights) suing Viacom to get out of their exclusivity deals.

Right now, I'm pretty sure Activision are kicking themselves. So far, Bethesda Softworks look to be doing a good job with the Star Trek franchise: their "arcade shooter" Encounters didn't get such hot reviews, but Tactical Assault (done by Quicksilver, the guys who made the original Starfleet Command) is great, and Legacy, which will release soon on the PC and Xbox360, looks to be a solid title as well.
