  1. Elite Force had the potential to be not only a really stellar first-person shooter but also a Star Trek title that would surpass all others. Yet its sometimes-sloppy graphics, constant interruptions and substandard enemy AI dull things considerably.
  2. On every level, this is a game destined to appeal to the silent minority who simply can't get enough of the series. If you're a fan, then resistance will be futile. [PSM2]
  3. Technically, everything about this game is average. The graphics are passable, the sound and speech are good (but hardly mind-blowing) and the gameplay is familiar.
  4. A fairly by-the-book first-person shooter given depth by the Star Trek mythos.
  5. If you're a fan of the show add a point here to take the game from good to very good.

    The level design of the game is decent, the atmosphere is great, the characters have character, but the control is lousy, the framerate is lousy, and the game looks like a bad port.
  7. Surprisingly compelling story, expectedly terrible gameplay.
  8. Underneath the offensive layer of crap that coats every facet of this version is a more than adequate game desperately trying to get out. [Feb 2002, p.113]
  9. Several generations behind the quality we’re seeing in other PS2 first-person shooters. [Feb 2002, p.85]
  10. While I'm on a tirade about the bad, let's talk stupidity; in this case, the enemy AI. Baddies are as dumb as an inebriated possum caught in a set of headlights.
  11. Aside from porn stars, no one likes sloppy seconds. But that’s what Majesco is shamelessly serving up with this effortless rehash. [Feb 2002, p.158]

    Have you ever played a game that was just so horribly bad that you couldn’t help but wonder why the game was ever released in the first place? A game so horrible that it could literally bring a grown man to tears over the amount of frustration and pain that it caused?

    Well, this is one of those games. Elite Force is one of the most fun games I've played in a long time. And as for you guys obsessed with Well, this is one of those games. Elite Force is one of the most fun games I've played in a long time. And as for you guys obsessed with graphics, grow up. Graphics most definantly do NOT make or break a game. Look at Mario. One of the best games ever, and you're a guy made up of about a dozen little squares. True Trek fans won't give a crap if the graphics aren't quite up to par. You're not a guy made of a few little squares, and the graphics aren't that bad. Great story and awesome multiplayer. Full Review »

    If you're a Star Trek fan, don't waste your time thinking this game is worth getting. It isn't.

    Let's start with the not-so-good: as far as graphics are concerned, I've seen better. But, then again, I've seen worse. The Let's start with the not-so-good: as far as graphics are concerned, I've seen better. But, then again, I've seen worse. The very-good list is longer: nice level design, high-tech action, all the weapons and a great storyline. Even if you don't really like Star Trek, you've gotta beam up! Full Review »
