Summary: I have to say I was a little disappointed... I love the first one with a passion but there is something about this second one that seems a little off. While the graphics are a MAJOR improvement and nice to finally be able to use a tricorder, the cut scenes are unskippable (and there is minute long cut scene every time you start up the game) and you can't permanently set any controls whatsoever.
More action than brains spoils replayability of this game
Rottenberg's rotten book review, Amazon
16 March 2014
Summary: YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S ABOUT "Elite Force 2" follows the adventures of Lt. Munro, leader of the Hazard team, Starfleet's special commando team "Elite Force". (Unlike the first EF game, you play Munroe only as a guy.) While the story opens with Munroe infiltrating a Borg super-ship (encountered in the Voyager finale "Endgame"), the plot of Voyager covers a different story entirely. Back in Alpha Quadrant, Munro leads a new Hazard Team.
Summary: The seller was Amazon. It works fine on my PC running Windows XP Home SP3. There is a patch for the game (version 1.1). I replayed this game recently, and I thought it was still fun. It's an older game, but the graphics, sound, dialog, and game play have held-up well over time. It plays like a Star Trek episode. There were a few tricky parts, but a walkthrough helped with those.
Summary: Two-disc install quits in the middle, by causing my computer to cease recognizing the CD-ROM drive after the disc swap. To be fair, maybe it's the Dell computer. Dell is also the worst crap in the galaxy. I'd like to grab Michael Dell and shake him for foisting worthless junk on an unsuspecting world. I don't know if it's Dell or Activision; I'd like to kick both their asses.
Summary: Seeing how this product and most of the reviews for it are quite dated now, I thought it would be kind gesture to give people a heads up for those using more current hardware. First off, the game seems to have no problems running on Windows 7/8, but of course if you're running a widescreen monitor (which were still quite rare or nonexistence when the game came out), I suggest you google "Elite Force II Widescreen" to get some tips and tricks on how to run the game in...
Summary: The gameplay is nice, the graphics are pretty nice, but the game overall is just OK. About the gameplay, I'm glad that you actually have a tricorder and use it for different things. Actually, it's integral to use the tricorder if you want to beat the game, because you use it to find walls that you can shoot through, poison gas vents you have to seal, and bioscanners you have to avoid. The weapons aren't all that great, they seem to be overdone.
