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

I've played for about 5 hours now and it's not a superb game, but it's also not bad I would give it a 7.5 but because of the fact it must have a 7 or an 8 and with all the extemely low ratings so far I'm going with an 8 for a bit of a balance :)
In space everything is just gorgeous and full of detail and I'm not even running on the highest settings, since my pc is already a couple of years old. Inside the stations it is pretty oke but just not up to the standards set by the space enviroments. The biggest problem that ruins the submersion into the game are the animations of the characters spend some more time on them and it would help a lot.
Controles 8/10 (For controller use)
I have connected my xbox controller and using that the most right now. At first the response of the right stick was WAY to high but after some tweaking that was fixed. It took a little bit of getting used to the several controls in the beginning and walking around is still a little bit awkward. But all in all I have no problems with it. But I have not spend a lot of time on the mouse and keyboard yet and since a lot of problems I read on here are about the keyboard and mouse controls my score might be a big higher
User Interface 7/10
The user interface has indeed been streamlined and although a lot of people are complaining about the new menu I think it all just a matter of getting used to it. Of course it is different from the old games and ofcourse that means you can't find everything right away. But that was the same thing when you jumped into X3 as a new player to the series. In fact for me this is already easier than the old X3 menus where.
So far the only real pain in my butt while playing the campaign is that fact that you must search for the right entry into a space station and then have to look around for the right persion (took me a long time to find a drones sales(wo)man). I rather not spend unneccesary time looking for people inside the space station when the outside is so much more beautifull to be in.
The game has a lot of potential and is off to a great start, just spend a bit more time on the animations and looks of all the characters we have to spend time with and try to think of a faster method of finding the right person for a job and the game would already improve a lot.… Expand

When i saw the X-rebirth trailer i was drooling like a dog and had a erection I was feeling glorious and thought by myself YIAHAAA FINALLY a beautiful Space game like Eve-online but offline space battles and trading and missions maybe more Looks great I am going to buy this one Maybe a lot of people thought this also and thats why they had a selling peak what they call a SUCCESS ?
Lucky i didn't want to buy this from Steam because long time downloading and wanted to wait for the dvd of X-rebirth coming to the game shop But now after i reading al these negative things here and on the Steam forum i will not buy this Maybe for 15 Euro,s ..dont know yet I will not buy it now maybe never and just wait for Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous and Space engineers final version .
But isn't it a crime to sell a game wat is in alpha stage for the full price … Expand

X Rebirth required me to edit myIt has been a LONG time since I had to manually edit save game files just to proceed in a computer game. X Rebirth required me to edit my save game files numerous times on the first day. Broken scripts, missing game elements, unresponsive AI, and other random issues helped me rate this game very low.
The graphics of space and the ships, stations and weapons are nicely done. The characters in the game look like something from 2003.
The voice acting is horrid, the actors were obviously recorded in different studios. Some actors sound like they are talking from inside a garbage can, while others sound like they are in an auditorium or in a sound proof box. The poor voice over work breaks the immersion of the moment.
I had to keep the Steam Group Chat open while playing, because I would come across bugs so often. I would ask if anyone help had the same issue and execute their fix or go search the forum for a work around. I have played game in the past, perhaps a decade or so ago where something would go wrong and a quick savegame edit fix solved the problem. When that did happen, it would be a ONE time thing.... with Rebirth, I found myself editing my save.xml file several times a day... really? If I had not the savvy to do this, then the game would just ended already.
I am done with this game, I may come back in a year or so and see if the developers can fix it and maybe the modding community can give it some life. Overall, this is a pile of cold crap... it's not even steaming.… Expand
Jul 24, 2015even after patch 3.53 the game is crap. still no economic system, still the same station to walk at every station, still a stupid autopilot (even after patch 3.53 the game is crap. still no economic system, still the same station to walk at every station, still a stupid autopilot ( remember me of X3 TC autopilot, do the same crap and crash you into stations ^^)
this game is still only a space shooter with a tiny element of random Price history tradingsystem.
X games had 4 foundations of gameplay: "trade, fight, build, think". Rebirth has only 2 left : fight and build.
