Space-sim at it's finest.fable2 | Jan. 30, 2013 | See all fable2's reviews »
If you are a Space simulator fan, look no further. The X series is here to reveal this Space merchant, dogfighter, miner, explorer, bountyhunter, pirate that was suppressed inside you for so long.
A little bit difficult at the beginning, but once you get the hang of it nothing can stop you. The choices you have are unlimited. The detail on this game is unbelievable. The sad fact that there are no cockpits on the game is canceled by the big modding community, that offers you not only cockpits but many other mods to improve your experience an adjust the game to your needs.

This was a game I realy hoped would live up to my fond memories of Frontier: Elite II. Having played it for several hours I would have to say the graphics are fantastic, the sound is great. Combat is very hard and trading is complex enough to keep your interest. Where this game totally fell down for me was the combination of very long loading times and difficult combat. If your ship is destroyed you are punished with a very long wait for the game to reload. This brings back memories of playing Championship Manager 2 on my old 486 25mhx pc in the late 90's and having time to go and make a cup of tea and read some of my book between matches! The PC I have now (with a quad core processor) is good for nearly all games but couldn't reload this game quick enough for me to keep playing after the first few hours.
