For me X beyond the frontier was the reason to get into this game. The main pull of this game was that you basically start with nothing and in the beginning even things like docking a station and getting from A to B or making reasonable profit are hard. After some time you learn how to play and upgrade your ship a bit and you can actually do these things effortlessly. This felt so much like beeing stranded in space and slowly lerning how to "live" in an alien universe, that I fell in love with the game. This aspect does not translate well to the newer X games, but everything else is of course more refined. For me thats still a net loss, but still a good game.
I admittedly did not play X3 for long. I received it as a free bonus for purchasing games from GMG and decided to give it a try. The game throws you straight into a scenario with very little explanation and it took me awhile to figure out how to even move. I didn't get as far as learning how to achieve my objective. I can see the appeal for those willing to put in the time to learn how to play, but for those who are not that into space simulators and want something a little bit more accessible, try something else. I gave the game a positive review as I can see its merits. I just didn't like it.
This game combines the space fighting sim freespace with some RPG aspects such as upgrading your ship, buying new parts, you can do missions, you can do trading. Theres just so much to do. And of course the graphics are super pretty. Its a somewhat old game but its still amazing looking at planets and ships blow up. better than x rebirth!
When the game came out in 2005 the graphics were very good. It still looks relatively decent by todays standards. No other game had this level of economic strategy or freedom. Ship components such as particle cannons are manufactured and the prices fluctuate based on supply and demand. From your own factories you can build ships, assemble a fleet and equip all of them with guns and shields made at your factories. You can be as creative and destructive as you like in this huge sandbox universe. The campaign is relatively easy and short but the strength of the game play lies in the freedom you have in approaching combat. You could bring a fighter to a space battle or an armada of titans(battleships) or even captured exotic ships and weaponry. There is a large number of ships to capture and reverse engineer and weapons to try out that will keep you entertained for hours.
