Star Trek: Elite Force II, released this week, has earned favourable reviews from several web sites. Here are some of the comments on the release:
- Computer & Video Games says that "committed Trek-obsessives will get off on Elite Force II's depiction of Gene Roddenberry's universe." The game, says Steve Colton, "is shaping up to be another classy sci-fi shooter."
- Daniel Raebiger of the German TrekNews.de gave the game a 92% score, stating, "A intelligent story, great dialogs, clever enemies and two women to fall in love with - this game is a must."
- Also in German, 4Players.de gave the game ratings of 87% for single player mode and 86% for multiplayer mode. The review cited the variety of multiplayer modes and the excellent grapics.
- Games First! has a preview with comments from Elite Force II executive producer Marc Struhl and tester Patrick Bowman.
Gamer's Depot has an Interview Q&A with Activision's Dan Hagerty about the game. "There is no substitute for jumping into multiplayer and blowing off some steam by vaporizing your co-workers", he said.
Ritualistic, Ritual's official news site, which provided many of the above links, reported that the Macintosh version of the game reached the beta phase on Friday and that the port should be released next month.
A demo of the game is available at Blue's News.
