Chris F Posted July 1, 2003 Report Share Posted July 1, 2003 Star Trek : Elite Force 2 came out last week. There wasn't a lot of fanfare about it, so I'm just checking in to see if anyone else purchased it. I was a big fan of the first one, and although it was short, it was probably the best, and most immersive, Star Trek game I've ever played. I've only played through the tutorial and first mission, but I'm enjoying it more than the first so far. It makes great use of the age-old Quake 3 engine, and looks pretty snazzy. Lots of cool visuals, and decent facial animation (It's no HL2 though). The first mission takes place on board a Borg vessel (a la the frist EF), and tied directly into the last episode of Voayger. It's very atmospheric, and very cool. Control is standard FPS style, and favors faster paced gameplay. Sound is straight out of Star Trek, and sounds great using EAX2 on my Audigy 2 sound card. There's an option for EAX3, but I don't think that's out yet in driver form. Multiplayer looks like a blast (the first had great MP as well). One of my favorite levels being a model of the bridge of the Enterprise being looked at by Picard. Everything is huge, and I was very surprised when I was in the ready room fragging people, and a HUGE Picard started staring through the window. There are different game modes including CTF and Team DM as well. Quite a few servers are up running it, so there isn't a shortage on where to play. If you like Star Trek, and you like the FPS genre, you'd most likely enjoy ST:EF2. If you don't, well, you probably won't. It was definitely worth a purchase for me. But how will I find time to play when every night is occupied by SWG? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
