Nov 17, 2013Just play 3-5 hours before posting a comment Some people here don't realy understand that X-rebirth is a HUUUGE game with a HUUUGE tutorial and need time to be domesticated. I put 10 to increase the general rate. Objectively for now 8... But 9 or 10 once bug ll be fixed!… Expand
Nov 28, 2013Looking past the unfinished game there are a lot of positives from it at its core, at its current state you cant ignore the many broken scripts and the UI is interesting to say the least. If your a X fan try and ignore the pessimists with all the refund and 0 scrores as these kids never played the previous ones at release point either. Patches are coming quickly from egosoft and the Modding community as allays with the X series are second to none and have improved and fixed lots of issues. My opinion this will like all the Xs before will turn into a great game.… Expand
Nov 15, 2013This game is broken and is an insult to the simulation genre.
It's an arcade game posing as a simulator. Your ship has 0 functions. You just fly through space and shoot stuff if it appears in front of you. You have no radar, no ability to lock onto anything without manually clicking on it, no cycling targets, etc. You have no way to know if an enemy ship in combat is coming up behind you unless it starts shooting at you. There is zero situational awareness.
And on top of that there was obviously no quality control because half the missions in the game are broken and require reloading and trying over and over again to get them to luckily continue. The first hour of the game took me about 3 hours to get past due to constantly relaoding upon hitting mission breaking bugs.
Don't waste your money.… Expand
Nov 20, 2013Some aspects of the game are nice. Large space stations, huge freighters and a travelling system (which is not perfect, but better than boring jump gates) are ok.
The is a huge step down. In AP with its minimalistic hud you actually felt the space, it was very immersive, but now i feel like i'm in catterpillar tractor or something. Another sad thing is that there is only one ship to pilot now. In AP you could go and get fast Boron discoverer and or a big freighter. I miss this.
Unfortunately the commercials of X Rebirth featured only the bright sides of the game. They didn't include incredibly boring, lame-textured space station corridors (which is generally not a bad idea), and so (can't find appropriate words) awful NPCs. These badly-textured robots is a huge game breaker. I really don't want to see them, to talk to them or interact in any way. They are just creepy! Unfortunately one of these space monsters lives in my even during free game. What's wrong with her clothes? What is this hole in the chest area of her costume for? I can only speculate that this is a trick to drive the look from her face. I'd add 2 points just for a feature of ejecting this monster queen from my ship.
So, for the space: +2, -8 for everything else.… Expand
Nov 20, 2013This game is a complete disaster, well beyond repair. Its not about bugs or framerate but more about design errors.
The UI is absolutely terrible, it does not display any useful informations, you can not zoom out, no external view of your ship, apparently we re in the future, have space ships but we have to fly near an object to see if there is any trade available ???
We have the cokpit view all the time, so its really difficult to see what s going on around the ship, no targetting system, the cokpit offers no interesting information its a complete mess.
Avoid at all costs… Expand
Sep 10, 2014well, i can't say anything positive about that awful piece of packed up bits...
i always trusted egosoft and played their X series 2-3 years ingame time but that one isn't a X-game at all, no real freedom, all station-parts are exactly the same in every station
the npc's and interactions are dumb, boring and emotionless
if i wouldn't know that it is from egosoft i would've bet that it's the result of an unknown russian gameforge that hasn't made any other game before -.-"
it's a shame that there is no way to get back the 50 bucks i spend on this...
in my opinion egsosoft should pay back twice the amount players payed for that scam… Expand
