So... did no one pick this up?  I'm more interested in the 360 and PSP titles... but for 20$ it might be worth it.

I'm holding out for the 360 version myself.  I can certainly request it if there is sufficient interest. smile

There still aren't any reviews for this game.  Anyone try it out yet?

Yeah, the pretty much complete silence on this one confuses me.  For 20 bucks it may be best if I don't go near the mall for a couple of days smile

I stared at it for a while tonight.  Then I grabbed godhand instead.  I may get it tomorrow, or over the weekend if I hear good things about it

I saw it for $14.99 at Best Buy yesterday.

I still find it odd that the game is out and the only review on Game Rankings is a 4/5 from Jive Magazine.

I own it, but I've been distracted by godhand, so I haven't even booted it up yet.

Okay got a couple of hours in playing this tonight.  It is actually quite fun.

Targetting multiple bird of preys and blowing them away simultaneously doesn't get old.  I'm looking forward to trying out the co-op onslaught mode.  Basically unending waves of enemies.

You can switch setting between weapons, sensors, shields, and engines.  You have a limited vertical manueverability.

It is very arcade style.  But, so far very worth the 20 dollar price tag.  It also encourages me for the 360/psp versions coming out soon.

Found a copy, kicked some Xindi Spheres around the universe.  Now I'm into the Star Trek movie era. smile  This game is some shoot 'em up fun and I can't wait to play Onslaught with a friend!

Just as an FYI - the PSP version (Star Trek: Tactical Assault) is more like a tactical arcade shooter along the lines of the old tactical PC games (the ones where you were limited to one 'plane' of action, had to always turn to make sure your strongest shields (out of 6) were faced towards your opponent, and weapons have relatively long recharge times) than anything else. And most missions involve you blowing up lots of Klingons and other things.

Looks like a bit of fun, but I'm personally holding out for the PC/360 version.
