    Elite Force was... OK, it wasn't special, but it was worth playing.

    Have you played Legacy? That was a similar line to EF, pretty decent, but nothing to write home about. There is something special about a skirmish with the Borg though.

    Yeah, Elite Force was a game you should have really plaid. It kinda destroys the arguments in this post. It was good fun at the time. Also it had shed loads of violence. Right click to vaporise :S

    The next generation on the original gameboy was ok at the time, although looking back it should have been pretty tedious!

    Elite Force was good yeah.

    Also there was a 4X game in 1999 called 'Birth of the Federation' - came from Microprose and is also well worth a look if you like that genre, I lost many hours to that one back in the day...

    Oddly I have played most of the Trek games and Elite Force was the only one I truly enjoyed the sequel wasn't as good but still worth a play. I suppose it was because I was a Voyager nut at the time and Elite Force had all the right voices and context.

    Go play Elite Force mate you won't regret it the graphics actually still hold up quite well.

    Birth of the Federation was good, the Armarda games were also good, The Acadamy games were also good, enjoyed both Elite forces games and Legacy on the 360 is good as well.
    Seems like not enough thought went into this article ;)

    Star fleet command no academy.

    I loved ST Armada 2 so much, even used the mods for it, Birth of the Federation was nice to play and I simply enjoyed Elite Force 2 for ages.

    Am currently playing Conquest on the Wii.........very poor but I play it

    Birth of the federation was excellent, shame it just crashes alot on XP and above. And huge memory leaks. and cheating ai to the max.

    i hate the borg. 9 x Defiant class ships on Intercept Mode Cheesecake.

    I've only ever played Elite Force 2, and I quite enjoyed it. It ran on the Quake 3 engine IIRC, and I thought the way the phaser felt, was pretty good TBH.

    What about Star Trek: Away Team? That was pretty good from what I remember of it, bit like Baldur's Gate.

    Elite Force was a solid if unspectacular shooter (Quake 3 based IIRC) - worth playing, if thats your thing (wasn't so keen on the sequel though)

    Just play Elite Force! It's one of the best games I ever bought, especially LOVED the part on the enterprise
    even played it at quite a lot of lan parties, although the multiplayer part feels and plays almoust the same as quake 3 (actually not a bad thing if you ask me)

    didn't get into Elite Force 2 though because it literally gave me headaches due to the camera bobbing around on every step you make and all that... :-/

    I liked Elite Force and the Armada games :)

    Elite Force 2 kind of lost the plot and was more of an FPS that happened to have Star Trek characters and voices.

    Elite Force was immense, I remember playing the demo and just going 'whoa'. Wonderful game, apart from the finale.

    The first Armada game remains my favourite. Playing a true trek RTS with the music was about as good as it could get. Second Armada game is good, but seems to lack what made the first one special. I think it's the way it's balanced - the BORG cubes for example aren't dealers of ultimate destruction unless you fuse 8 together (yes, that's 8).

    Star Trek Bridge Commander once you added loads of mods to it was great fun! Especially when you can play a Borg cube and cripple all those federation vessles muhahahah

    STA was great as it supported multi monitor on the Matrox G400 so I had the real time battle footage piped out to my TV lol.

    Oh god and dont remind me of Klingon Language Lab & DS9: Harbinger :(

    Bridge Commader was good.
    Birth of the Federation was good.
    Elite Force was....ok.
    Away Team was....ok.
    Armada I +II were my favourites.
    Command series was also good.

    So overall, there are ok games, but none that are great.
