Hack, Blast, And Vaporize!!!!!

The alien invaders show no mercy, and neither should you. Hack, blast and vaporize your way into the heart of galactic evil with devastating firepower. Battle through the ravaged hulk of a massive starship, protect an alien colony under siege, face the unknown on a treacherous volcanic planetoid and assault a host of insidious alien strongholds. Where diplomacy fails, the Hazard Team thrives.

A terrifying evil has awakened. Hordes of nightmarish creatures are attacking ships and colonies throughout the galaxy. Evolved for combat, their armies have made easy work of the opposition. Now, it's up to the Hazard Team to respond. Lead your highly trained squad from volcanic worlds to deadly swamps, from starship hulls to the underground cities of long-vanished races, from mercenary space stations to ice planets. Bring the fight to the enemy as the twisting plot unfolds. Seek to uncover the mysterious origins of the invaders and eliminate their threat once and for all.

Reviews:

Action Trip by Uros "2Lions" Jojic

"But, even so, the story and its colorful characters (the Klingons, Ferengi, Vulcans, etc.); great directing, entertaining and sometimes witty dialogue, expressive voice acting and masterfully paced plot will be one of the main reasons why you'll want to finish Elite Force 2. That feeling I got when I was playing the original; of being a part of a Trek episode; was even stronger in the sequel. The designers had a decent budget and it shows. Even though you might question the game's originality you cannot question the skilful fusion of cinematic and gameplay elements that present the strongest quality of Elite Force 2."

"Finally, one of the things that the gameplay has working for it are the rather entertaining, though not particularly challenging logical puzzles. The good thing about them is that the programmers will make you use your brain in pressure situations. The idea is so good and such an obvious asset that I fail to see why it hasn't been used more often in games. The designers will generally put you in a tight spot (gas leakage, warp core overheat, etc.) and make you solve a logical puzzle under pressure. The great thing about it is that the time continues to pass in real time as you're solving the puzzle, so you'll not only be required to solve it, but solve it fast! Kudos to the ex-Ritual team members for including this novelty in the game."

"Seriously, even though some weird level design decision and venerable AI code may present a fairly serious drawback, the aforementioned qualities of EF2 outweigh the bads. Shooter fans that appreciate the Star Trek universe should go out and buy this game. The single-player is longer than in the original (I can't say exactly now many hours it took me to finish it, but it's certainly more than it took me to beat the original). There are also a lot of secret areas, and if you collect enough golden ships, you can unlock bonus maps. The multiplayer is standard and not exactly the game's main selling point, but at least it's present."
