Final Breakdown


Varied gameplay and solid, tabletop-inspired combat make the game fun and easy to come back to. The missions are all short enough to be played in a sit-down stretch, which is a good design choice for a game on portable systems.


 On the PSP, the graphics are all about the ships: in the DS, it's about the experience and interface, but both options make for a great visual experience.

Sound and Music:

With the exception of an opening movie, there's almost no sound clips, but the music is well done and sound effects faithful to the series.


While you can make it harder, some of the missions are darn difficult, while others are relatively easy to pass. Choice of upgrades can have a lot to do with success in the game.

Controls and Interface:

The controls on the PSP version aren't as good; the game really benefits from the DS's touch screen for giving orders.


Whichever system you get it on - DS or PSP - you're going to like Tactical Assault.
