Star Trek: Elite Force II
10 February 2009
Excerpt: Games that are based on a successful movie licence usually have very poor production values, not being able to reach the success of the movie they are trying to convert to PC. There are many examples, and the Star Trek...
Summary: For years the Star Trek franchise was synonymous with extremely poor PC gaming.
A slew of reasons ranging from bad writing, poor graphics, to substandard
gameplay was the chagrin of devout gamers and Trek fans alike.
Excerpt: Star Trek: Elite Force II is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force. This time your mission takes place on the Enterprise, though oddly the only person that appears from the show is Captain Picard.
Excerpt: Another star trek game I hear your say? its been a while since the last, well this month anyway. Star Trek Voyager: Elite Forces is the first game to be based on the Voyager series. Star Trek EF uses the Quake 3 Engine to full effect making the game run smoother and better.
Excerpt: Three years ago, Activision and Raven have released their first-person shooter based upon the Star Trek Voyager TV series.

Excerpt: Much like the Star Wars franchise, Star Trek has had its own long run of hit-and-miss licensed games. Knowing nothing about the Elite Force games, one might guess that a Star Trek first person shooter would be a bad decision.
Elite Force II is a good, well-rounded shooter that should satisfy fans of similar games, as well as Star Trek fans looking to shoot first and ask questions later.

Summary: If you consider yourself a Star Trek fan, then you probably wouldn't expect the TV series to be very good material for a first-person shooter. After all, more so than other science fiction series, Star Trek has always taken a more cerebral approach as the courageous crews of vessels like the...
