Not as good as it could have been
29 December 2005 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I loved and played the original Elite on the ZX Spectrum so looked forward to this sequel on the PC. It was a bit of a disappointment in that there were a lot of good ideas in it that were not followed through. The stars around the Solar System were all placed correctly e.g. Alpha Centari, Tau Ceti, Ross 128 etc, so that was good. But there were millions of other star systems that just seemed to exist to fill up space - you could never get to them. The basic premise of the game was to either trade between stars, hunt pirates, or be a pirate yourself, or by some other means make enough money to buy a bigger and better space ship. After a bit of play you soon realised there was nothing else to actually do, but it was nice to fly around and imagine how good the game could have been.

I am surprised this game gets an IMDb listing as I don't remember any voice acting - the game shipped on a couple of 3 1/2 inch floppy disks after all! But maybe the docking computer said something...

Anyway - a game that needs a decent update for the 21st Centary! X2:The Threat and the new one from those German developers I forget the name of are OK games - but the science in them is shockingly bad. I loved this Elite game because it had a bash at making the part of the galaxy around our solar system look to a certain extent realistic!
