I liked both games on the Amiga. The combat, cargo scooping and docking in Elite, along with the gradual upgrading of your ship made it a great game to play for a many hours.

Frontier is more impressive in almost every way, except for the combat. Instead of dogfighting like in Elite, it's more like jousting, which I thought was more realistic but a big step back gameplay wise. Still, everything else in frontier was totally absorbing.
It was the Grand Theft Auto of its day.
