The more I read & see about this game. The more I like it. It reminds me of several games I really love. The commerce aspects remind me of Fable. It sort of looks like Fable in Space from that standpoint. The combat, energy and universal interaction physics remind me of Mass Effect. Except Egosoft seemed to nail it. The exploration aspects of it reminds me of MYST. So I am really excited about trying it. I haven't tried any earlier version. But if I like it. I will surely circle back. I hope this game provides the excellent experience I'm seeking to bridge me to the next Mass Effect.
Thanks Tory for arousing my interest in this. I had seen X in closeout bins. But never bought it. I'll grab it on my next visit to Micro Center if its still there. Otherwise, I'll download both from Steam.
On a simpler note...How did MS miss not locking up an exclusive port of this entire series for the Xbox One Launch?Edit
Major embarrassment! After pouring through my backlog of games...I discovered that I actually own X3 Reunion. I snagged it in July from Micro Center ($1.99), when I was building my Game PC. Just had not got around to playing it. But Tory's video above has inspired me to give it a run. I'll talk about it on this thread since it is the only one on the Forum about X. But after looking at the videos for X Rebirth on the link, I am intrigued about jumping right to it on Steam. So question for anyone who has played X. Would you play Reunion first? Or circle back to it after playing X Rebirth?Edited by barrelbelly - 11/13/13 at 12:46pm
