Product Description

Product Description

Now set in the Star Trek: The Next Generation universe, players can expect to face off against classic Star Trek antagonists such as the Borg, Klingons and Romulans. Players will also fight several never before seen alien species including a mysterious nightmare race. To help players gain the upper hand against such formidable foes, Star Trek Elite Force II allows players to arm themselves with 13 different weapons and gear including a phaser, compression rifle, multi-functional grenade launcher, Romulan disruptor, tetryon gatling gun, a full-featured tricorder, and several all-new weapons.

Over the course of the Star Trek Elite Force II, players will be able to explore different options or tactics when dealing with a threat, as opposed to being forced to pursue a particular path. Additionally, the game boasts a larger number of environments and a significantly longer gaming experience than the first Elite Force.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Combining elements of puzzling, exploration and full-on first-person action, Star Trek Elite Force II picks up where the excellent original left off. That it also proves to be one of the smartest uses of the undoubtedly resourceful Star Trek licence should endear it still further to action-hungry PC gamers. Putting the player in the shoes of one of those throwaway extras that tend to disappear in a special effect from time to time, the challenge is to complete a series of missions spread across environments that should be more than familiar to the average Trek fan. Yet to the credit of the designers, they're also suitably diverting to uninitiated, thanks to quality level design, a succession of interesting challenges and a believable game environment.

As a game, it demands that you work out what to do and where to do it, which frequently means putting weapons away and letting your brain do some of the work. But a good blast is never too far away, and you're never left you with nothing to do. Sure, you might find yourself stuck from time to time, but a little bit of thought can usually back you out of a corner.

Frankly, it's all very good fun, with just a couple of caveats. For instance, it does follow a tried and tested path that fans of this kind of title will have trodden many times before. It doesn't add too much in gameplay terms to the original, either.

All things considered though, it's still an easy game to recommend. Challenging, entertaining and, when it hits top gear, really quite engrossing, Elite Force II is polished PC entertainment and one of the strongest users of the Trek licence to date. --Simon Brew

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice puzzle shooter 29 Dec 2003
Although not been playing this game long, I am enjoying the experience. As a star trek: next generation fan you easily get a feel for the characters and locations (roaming round the enterprise is cool geekness!). Started playing a level and completed it only to realise it was a holographic simulation when completed. Nice voice overs from Patrick Stewart (Jean-luc) and good voices throughout. Graphically. Hmmm. After recently playing Max Payne 2 I have to say the graphics, although highly detailed and lovely to look at just dont quite cut it for me. Especially with the stencil shadows switched on. The shadows which whould should add mood and realism tend too look a bit odd and strangely disconcerting sometimes. I personally think the Quake3 engine needs ditching and is past its day. Musically unless my sound card isn't working properly (Vvery possible) where is the big sweeping orchestrations?. There is no satisfying rising zzzzziiipp when you top up your energy or weapons. Computer 2600 xp, 512mb corsair, radeon 9800. To summarise. Graphics: Very nice, turn off shadows, not worth losing frames. Music: ? Gameplay: Loving it up to now, absorbing and will stay in my cd tray till completed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Story And Graphics 7 May 2003
By A Customer
To all that have played Elite force and found a need for a more intricate plot this is the game for you. After playing a demo of the game I found that Elite force 2 has a superior plot and graphics. The overall plot is on the Next Generation this still offers the oppertunity of new races but the Voyager scenario would have worked better as their is a more believable theme to exploration and the chance of meeting new races. The game makers lived upto their promise of providing a more interactive enviroment and a longer storyline (Elite Force 1 was a bit short). There is a long plot with a more interactive play as the have created multi storylines available so that certain decisions made will effect the outcome of your missions. included in the new game is the availability of new weapons that in the first game were limited to the number of number keys on your keyboard. The game is an overall improvement on the first but lacks the BELIEVABILITY of the first because of being in the Alpha quadrant instead of the harshly unexplored Delta quadrant where unknown races may dwell. Though the Game is a Must for all Star Trek fans out there or those that like RPG's or tactical games.

3.0 out of 5 stars ST : Elite Force 2 22 Dec 2003
By Chris VINE VOICE
The original Elite Force was a long way from eing "excellent" - while it looked nice, it was far too short.
Elite Force 2 is a bit more in the same vein. The game is longer than its predecessor, although the lengthy storyline cut-scenes do become quite annoying later in the game. There are at least 2 cut-scenes which last around 4-5 minutes each; plenty of time to be tempted to press Escape while you're twiddling your thumbs and slightly too long a lull from the action. EF2 does look good, however, with very impressive texturing, effects, and animation. My beloved hand-phaser from Elite Force 1 also makes a re-appearance - perfect for a challenge. Elite Force 2 is also fairly difficult, which adds to the longevity if you're feeling brave. A few small puzzle elements are flung in, and in general, it feels as if some extra time was spent on this one

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear God why? 18 Jun 2008
By Switch
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The first Star Trek Elite Force was superb. The gameplay was engaging and exciting, and the story-line in keeping with the TV series and involving. Not only this, but the player was a crew-member of Voyager, able to fight alongside 7 of 9 and Captain Janeway. The modelling was superb, the voice overs well timed, and the overall experience was immensely enjoyable, compounded by the release of the Expansion Pack which enabled the player to, amongst other things, visit the Holo Deck and use food replicators.

This particular incarnation appears to have reversed all that made the first game enjoyable. The game begins with Voyager trapped inside a Borg Sphere, and the player, Elite Force member Alex Munroe, must free the trapped vessel and flee the sphere. So far so good. At least for the story. Unfortunately, what becomes immediately apparent is the unsatisfactory quality of the gameplay. I'm not quite sure how they did it, but they managed to make firing a compression rifle a distinctly "meh" affair. Vaporising enemies consists of them glowing faintly, rather than bursting forth in a flare of atmomic energy, screaming as their eyes ignite like two dying stars, as gamers will no doubt remember from the first installment in the series. The same goes for the I-MOD rifle. No longer is there a satisfying "BOOM!" of purple energy slamming majestically into a borg, but what now resembles a green trail of saliva floating out of the end of an oversized, technologically advanced toilet plunger. These are just two examples, but they provide evidence for a recurring theme throughout the game: that it has lost its soul.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original 16 July 2003
By A Customer
Oh dear. After much hype and anticipation, I bought the game expecting it to be an improvement on the original. It wasn't.
The game itself is worth playing, but you'll feel frustrated at the lack of power of the weapons and average graphics. One minute you'll find yourself battling with impressive boss monster, and the next you'll be sat there watching video cut-scenes and doing nothing for the next 5 minutes.
In my opinion, buy the game, the boss levels are amongst the best played to date. Just please don't expect the game to be anything special - its not.
