X3: Reunion Reviews
The game play must be excellent for trading but it doesn't really seem to work for combat though.

This game is all like its predecessor, X2 with new graphic and few additions. It is great onlt thanks to those fans that edited great scripts that expand the X-universe and make the player really able to build fleets of ships and stations (and manage them). It is a good game, but FRONTIER still is the ONLY game space game that allows realistic planetry landings and solar systems maps (X maps are small). It lacks of multiplayer too (accelerated time deny this).
When will someone mix FRONTIER, the economy of X and the multiplayer capabilities of FREELANCER (no monthly paying, EVE-like)?
While Terran Conflict is one of the best space games, Reunion is THE best. The groundbraking graphics, realistic economy and a living beautiful universe makes this game outstanding and pratcicaly unreachable for years to come. The game doesn' end when the plot does; you can be anything you want to be, starting from a lone discoverer to a factory mogul or the most hated pirate in the known universe.
I liked the prequels and was looking forward to this release.
I bought it when it was released and installed it.
And uninstalled it. It ran as molasses on my fairly modern rig.
Read some good reviews and reinstalled it - patched the game so it was current. Ran it for an hour and uninstalled it yet again.
Tutorial was no good. Forum posts on how to get started was not very encuraging. I'm sure I would benefir for giving it six to eight consecutive hours would give me a run for the money.
A high learning threshold does not make a game good.
And a low fps does not help.
A gave it a third go, and this time I ran three missions and studied the forumm posts more carefully.
But the fun never happened for me.
A combination of a bad tutorial and a low fps will keep this game away from my hard drive.
Atleast till the next patch. I'll probably give it another go then again.
I do so wan't to like this game.
