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.
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
