I have since grown to love the game. The developers have been patching / fixing / improving the whole time and it's now a great game.
Looking forward to the next installation.… Expand

It's not perfect, but no game ever is despite what people claim. Personally, I like how they did things and i believe that this game has potential with a few months of bug fixing.… Expand
Nov 19, 2013This is my review I did of X Rebirth on my review site, http://tiger-gaming.org
There has been a lot of hype surrounding the release ofThis is my review I did of X Rebirth on my review site, http://tiger-gaming.org
There has been a lot of hype surrounding the release of this game, and Egosoft has put a lot of time into creating such a game. After all, with the huge success of X3 and the X series in general there is a lot to live up to. However, no one can argue that the X games are complicated beasts. Advanced fleet management, combat, trading networks etc. Egosoft needed to “re think” and re design the game in a way to not lose the complexity, but to simplify the learning curve to allow more people to become fans of this very deep, and complicated world they created. Well, this has back fired! Is that a terrible thing, I don’t think so. The complexity is still there. It is just hidden behind somewhat inefficient menus, and interfaces. But don’t think for a second this is the end, far from it.
X-Rebirth is a game that Egosoft has been working on for the past 7 years, and the amount of time and effort put into this game shows. Sure, the models for some NPCs aren't the best, and the dialogue can be a little cheesy, but the real impressive feat is the dynamic living Universe they made. You are just simply a squirrel trying to get a nut in this huge Universe. Of course, that doesn't mean you can’t make a name for yourself, quite the opposite… You are free to do anything at all. You can be a space pirate and pillage any space craft you see, you can be a large scale trade tycoon making Millions, or be the best military combat pilot there is! It’s all up to you, and X Rebirth will let you do it all, at least that is what the plan was.
The game so far for many people has been a let down. There are problems with random crashing, performance issues, bad dialogue, and poor voice acting just to name a few. I was really excited for this game, and wanted to build up a huge trading empire, and eventually build my own space stations. I haven't been successful so far either due to crashing, being stuck in the campaign, or just plain frustration.
But, for all that is bad and disappointing about this game, there is a silver lining. Egosoft is very dedicated to the fans, and surprisingly they have been very supportive with the community and expressed sincere apologies for the issues players are having. I applaud them for doing that. Also, they have been busy working around the clock investigating the issues with X Rebirth and are truly listening to the feedback from the game community.
There is great potential for this game. After having problems with the campaign mode I decided to give the "Free Play" mode a try. And, in this mode it worked quite well. Exploring the Universe that Egosoft created can be breath taking. It is quite large and very well done. You'll find space stations, merchant ships, mining vessels and more just out there, doing their thing. It's all fully controlled by AI.
Another aspect of the game that does work well is Combat. I had some fun while going after raiders. I am terrible at combat in these kinds of games, but I still had some fun. It's especially nice to blow a ship up that is just getting on your nerves. And after gaining some credits currency you can upgrade your ship, and that makes flying and combat even better.
As for my recommendation for this game, it's a tough one. Sure, X Rebirth is not without problems, and I am sure you can read about many peoples experiences on the forums and community, but I like to believe there is still hope for X, and so far the developers have shown me that this is true. If you are an X fan then I say buy the game for sure. You know best that the X games have their share of problems on release, but they also have excellent developers and the games become truly great products. If you are new to the X Universe, you may want to wait for a major patch update, or a sale. But I still would suggest that you don't write this game off as a failure.… Expand
Nov 20, 2013To get my overall opinion out of the way, this is an exceptionally poor attempt by egosoft.
I'm a fan of the x series of games in generalTo get my overall opinion out of the way, this is an exceptionally poor attempt by egosoft.
I'm a fan of the x series of games in general but occasionally find them a bit too deep and meaningful, you can't just jump and be up and running in a couple of hours. Rebirth seems like it was designed to be that kind of title very suspiciously so) however falls flat on its face trying to implement it.
Gone are the many, many different systems, gone are the many, many hard to find but ultimately satisfying to get right commands, gone is the ability to fly different ships. What do you gain? An extremely poorly voiced and annoying co pilot, a single ship with very limited upgrade potential, very little control over anything else you own, game breaking bugs even in the tutorial section how can they get this wrong), very poor performance on a relatively high spec machine, about 3 different station interiors to explore....with about 5 people to talk to lots of other annoyances.
They've pretty much manages to take everything that was attractive about the previous games and either remove or ruin it. Not sure what the development plan was is or if there was a major shift that we dont know about causing the issues but 7years to produce an unfinished game charged out at £40 a time is nothing short of scandalous.
New players will be baffled as of to why they should persevere, fans of the series will be disgusted with the changes. No amount of patching will fix this game.… Expand
Nov 25, 2013$50 AUD for a game of this quality is absolutely unacceptable. The released version feels like an Alpha test given that all the promised$50 AUD for a game of this quality is absolutely unacceptable. The released version feels like an Alpha test given that all the promised features are still under development, and the sheer amount of crashes and bugs that riddle this game.
As a new comer to the X-series, I dearly want to like this game. I was sold to the concept of a space exploration game where you could build your own empire. I will never buy another product from Egosoft, I have to vote with my wallet for this one.… Expand

ThisHaving played all X games as they came out from X:BTF, I am very saddened by this release. I pre-ordered because I had faith in Egosoft. This game has so many fundamental *design* flaws that there really is no hope that I can see for it. Flying in space is pretty so perhaps they can take the engine and make X4, but the core game play of X: Stillbirth is so bad that I doubt any amount of modding will ever make it right.
It is obvious they designed it for consoles, and I'd bet all the money in my 401k we'll see PS4 and XBONE ports directly. Sad, because the X series was always a pc based complex trading game. I loved them for that, spent thousands of hours of my life playing the series.
They kept the game under tight wraps, didn't even send out review copies until release day. Now we know why. Egosoft will never get another dime from me. Hopefully Star Citizen or Elite will fill the void for a fun space sim, because this game never will.… Expand
