Favourite space sandbox

What the previous "X" games did well, Rebirth does even better. And it makes the space look so beautiful and hypnotic so you can spend long hours just travelling and watching it. The X series can be considered a space sandbox game. It can be a trading game, a RPG, a space combat game - you shape your own gameplay and your own genre with the way you play it. For me it's the direct successor of the old Elite game, and with every incarnation it becomes better and better. With excellent space combat model you may be willing to focus more on combat than on trading or exploration, but there's nothing to stop you changing your direction during the game and choosing a different style. That's the perfect thing about X Rebirth - you can make it your own game.

Not that good

Mikagee | Nov. 20, 2013 | See all Mikagee's reviews »

The game initially released with a lot of bugs and performance issues which drastically affected the overall game at release. Though the game has great detail in ships, stations and interiors. The animations of people talking or doing actions are poorly done and the speech's are repetitive. Another bad thing is the mini games within the game, they get annoying quickly and its the only way to continue sometimes. Overall Egosoft will release patches for the bugs, but they surely released a unfinished product. To sum it up, the graphics and detail are good but the game play and plot are disappointing.
