X Rebirth is finally here, at least in Europe, few more days for America. Strangely though, I find myself waiting for some reviews before I decide on this one, it looks kinda weird graphically. Have they overdone it with all the lights, lightmaps and trails etc?

From what I heard from a couple of guys it would seem the controls are quite bad but the graphics are cool.
Can't judge for myself as I haven't got this game yet and actually I haven't even checked to see if my pc can run it.

The trailer is very impressive!

However, the reviews so far on Amazon.co.uk do not rate the game at all... think I will watch from a distance for now

This game is not for everyone. There're too much criticism on the web, related to graphics and other. But this game put me back to X2 atmosphere and that's impressive. X series is not about graphics challenge. For me, X is MUCH better than star citizens and everything other. Haters gonna hate. This game is not about all what these reviews say.

A crime is the thought itself, the implementation is the only consequence.

X: Rebirth seems to have a lot of bugs (typical for an Egosoft release) and a lot of questionable gameplay systems. Graphics aren't talked about much at all, from what I've read.

I'll pass.

I feel like I might well pass too, I'm just not feeling all that excited about it. My steam library is overflowing with too many good games already, as is origin and uplay, and X is always a massive time sink. It will only be a matter of weeks before I take the plunge on a new console too, no idea which way that's going to go and there's no way I'm buying both! Then there's you guys and your TOW boomerang. I never thought it could happen, but I really think there's too many amazing games right now, I can't keep up!

I hear you Timmy. It was like half a year ago that I was looking on the internet and I just couldn't find a game to play that I liked and now they're everywhere, I don't have time to play all of them How cool is that !

The more I hear about X-Rebirth the less likely I am to purchase it till the price comes way down and Egosoft's had time to patch the hell out of it. On the surface, it's pretty, but what I've been seeing on the AI and other mechanics is downright disappointing.


@Timmy - thanks for the kind words. FW:ToW is real, I promise

The reviews are starting to come in - it's looking bad, really bad.

Starting perspective - I've owned X2, X3:Reunion, X3:TC, X3:AP.
I've been a massive X fan, always got the games and even written a 2 mission walkthrough on X3 release to try and appease the screaming from people going mental (no tutorial provided).

This is NOT X4, it's different. Obviously a large proportion did NOT consider this and bought. More fool them.

So - that said - I've got the game, and to be fair, it's horribly bugged. I've barely played 3-4 hours of it - and I've considered asking Steam for a refund. The ranting is over the top on the forums, it's beyond compare, but the game is seriously flawed from bugs at present. Many of the key features of X games don't work as expected yet.

I've faith that this WILL be great sometime as I've seen enough hints at what they've tried to do to know where it may end up.

But currently it's a fricken bug fest with the basics of the game barely working. I'm used to their releases being buggy so was not surprised, but this is beyond compare.

Give it 6-12 months and maybe it'll be worth picking up and playing.

I was well aware of it being a 1 ship affair, but currently it is executed so poorly that it is a major PITA on the mind. Maybe if i play more i'll realise it's okay. But right now, I'm missing having different ship classes to fly... even though in most X games people end up with 1 ship and sticking with it always (for their personal ship).

Yeah, they SOTS2'd all over the place. Shame, really. Hopefully they're not as full of themselves as Mecron is, and can take the criticism.

I found X2 and X3 disappointing after the first few missions, to say the least. Too little profit, too much waiting, unbalanced wares prices, dull scenery, hard to see bases, too much similarity across all space regions, apparently unmoddable to the degree that I would like... where shall I stop? Right here.

So FL is still my fave and I won't be considering Rebirth at all.

X Rebirth is a lot more colorful and the space varies a lot more. It's probably the only big advantage it has over X3

I was really hoping Rebirth was going to be a winner because it was supposed to be so different to X3, simpler if you like. X3 was way to complex for my taste, I loved the models and graphics, look and feel, but I only like games I can drop in and out of, play for a couple of hours then if needs be leave it until a few weeks later and play again. Simply not possible with X3, and maybe not possible with Rebirth either by the sounds of it, might just be that X games are never going to be to my taste. I got around it with X2 and 3 by bringing the content into freelancer, but that's never going to happen in this instance so maybe I'll never see any of it.

I can play a different game every day of the week, and sometimes a few different games a day depending on who I'm gaming with, maybe the X universe if for when you just want to disappear for a month and not speak to anyone.
