I'm a huge Deeps Space 9 fan and am thinking of buying another Star Trek game. At first I wanted to get DS9 the Fallen but when I heard it was Third Person and played rather like Tomb Rader I wasn't so sure (I really didn't like the Tomb Rader games or most other 3rd person shooters.) My second choice was Elite Force II becouse I really enjoyed the first one and like the FPS genre. I can't deside which so I've desided to ask my fellow Star Trek gamers. Note, please don't say other; Bridge Commander or Birth of the Federation because I'm on a Mac. Thanks.

Neither.

Get SFC3 and Bridge Commander.

That is what is hot now and will be until Harry gets us a new game.

The Fallen uses the Unreal engine and it is a bit like Tomb Raider. You do have to complete objectives and find stuff like Tomb Raider. Elite Force II isn't the same as the original, I don't think MP is as good. But from what you have said you would probably like EF2 more. The other thing about The Fallen is that someone else does the voice for Sisko and O'Brien :(

I didn't realise they ported The Fallen to the MAC.

If you want to see screenshots go to the following links, if you want to see some movies etc when you go to the official forum check out the links in the side menu.

I see there are some MAC topics on The Fallen Official Forum

Yeah, I heard about Colm Meany and Avery Brooks not doing the voices of their characters. Is it really that obvious?

I disagree--I think you should buy both if at all possible. The Fallen is an extremely well-made game with a very good amount of "Dominion War" DS9 atmosphere. The voice actor for Sisko is pretty good and you don't hear O'Brien much in the game. Also, the "Convergence" mod is a free set of missions for all three characters due for release in September. It is being produced by one of the original level designers who is also a big fan of the game and DS9.

Along with the ones posted above, please check the below site for more info:

If you're a fan of "DS9," then you should DEFINITELY check out "The Fallen."

Don't let the 3rd-person stuff intimidate (or dissuade) you.  Personally?  I think it's the better game.

:eyesroll: And not enough Aliens vs Predators. I mean if its called Aliens vs Predator you expect to see *shocking statement* Aliens fighting Predator(s) throughout the whole movie. Not for just the last 20-25 minutes. :(

Look, folks who say "The Fallen" was poor?

Well, they obviously never played it.  And that's the damn truth.

"The Fallen" is one of the strongest "Star Trek" titles out there...

Both are too violent. Gene Roddenberry would be appalled. :angry:
