a fun game that has held-up well over time

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: 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 game is just difficult enough to keep you playing yet not too hard. Cool graphics and sound. I was disappointed that there are not more capture the flag games and that you cannot be female at all times. Overall this is worth your money. Especially if you like action in a Star Trek format!!
Summary: Well, as my subject heading says, the single player was pretty darn good, with the multi-player being quite a disapointment (I'll get to my reasoning in a moment). SP had a good plot, graphics, map design, character interaction, etc., etc, that I believe is just as good, if not better, than the first game's SP (designed by Raven). Ritual definitely spent most of their efforts on this part of the game.
Summary: I recently finished playing this game, and I have mixed feelings. I gave it four stars for the graphics, sound, gameplay (overall), and because it was a pleasing distraction. But I took one star off because of how heavily scripted it is. There was no chance for exploration at all, you went from point to point like a mouse in a maze.
Summary: This is a good game: great graphics, interesting story, a very satisfying assortment of weapons and you get an up-close view of the Soveriegn Class Federation starship (nice looking main shuttle bay, and big too!). BUT: Before installing the game, make sure that you have DirectX 9 compatible video and audio hardware and drivers installed on your computer or else the game will completely lock up your PC on the second part of the game.
Summary: As in most of my reviews, I use the word "solid." While this game doesn't match up to Aliens Vs Predator 2, I enjoyed it much more than the original Elite Force. For me, the graphics were much improved. I found this game a bit more challenging than the first. It was hard enough at times, to get me frustrated. Yet not too hard to throw in the towel. You'll battle aliens on different ships in the galaxy.
Summary: Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this game. Graphics in particular were greatly improved over the original. I enjoyed a change of scenery from voyager to the Enterprise-E. Weapons, more than the original, some were enhanced. There are some secrets to look for, and they are worth checking out if found. As with all windows software, it can be expected to give some problems, but for the most part it was stable.
