Star Trek D.A.C. out today

So, Xbox Live Marketplace now offers Star Trek DAC. Has anyone played it yet?

My first impression is a good one. It's very simple, that game, very arcade-y shoot em up, but it's fun.

Too bad there are only two races to play - fits the film, but more variety would've been nice - and only three ship classes in each race.

On the upside: Original score from the film - yay! And nice maps that even show a certain planet in a certain condition... you know what I mean...

So for all Xbox users, make sure to at least download the trail version and then try going up against my mighty bomber ship.

If it doesn't come out for PC it's less than useless...

The game is fun enough. I wish one of the playable ships would have been the Kelvin though. that would be pretty sweet.

The ejection system is a nice touch too.

I tried the Xbox 360 demo. I was very disappointed and won't be buying the full game, especially since the reviews have pretty much confirmed what I already thought or expected.

Xbox Live, the only platform it's actually available on thus far.

There is absolutely nothing here that makes this game even the slightest bit compelling. It's a shitty, by the numbers arcade shooter with gameplay shallower than Space Invaders. My advice? Save the 7 bucks for something with a bit of depth. It's a cheap, rushed cash in and not worthy of anyone's time.

From my experiences with the Xbox 360 demo, this is "generic top down shooter" with a Trek skin applied and literally nothing more.

The developers should be ashamed at that they didn't put ANY effort into it at all.
