Info over het spel

X²: The Threat behoort tot een nieuwe generatie ruimtespellen. Je speelt de rol van Julian Gardna en het verhaal gaat verder waar het bij X: Beyond The Frontier eindigde. De bijgewerkte graphics engine heeft het universum opgefrist met nieuw ontworpen schepen en stations die de complexiteit van het universum vergroten.
  • Ga op ontdekkingsreis: verken meer dan 130 prachtig ontworpen sectoren waar galactische nevels je schepen en stations beïnvloeden en waar je asteroïden kunt ontginnen om materialen te delven die je later met winst kunt doorverkopen.
  • Nieuwe schepen: ga op verkenning in de meer dan 60 schepen van verschillende omvang, van verkennersschepen tot de veel grotere oorlogsschepen die geschikt zijn voor grote transporten.
  • Nieuwe upgrades: verbeter je scheepssystemen met nog veel meer upgrades en download nieuwe upgrades om de nieuwe scriptengine te kunnen gebruiken die speciaal voor X² is ontworpen.
  • Nieuwe wapens: je kunt je schip voorzien van nieuwe wapens, zoals de Ion Disruptor en Mass Driver, maar je kunt ook fabrieken bouwen die deze wapens ontwikkelen en ze verkopen om met de winst je eigen rijk in het universum uit te breiden.
  • Nieuwe missies: neem deel aan de missies die je op het mededelingenbord van elk station worden aangeboden, verdien geld met het verdedigen van konvooien en vernietig de binnendringende Xenon-vloten die alles vernietigen wat op hun pad komt.
    Maar help vooral het universum te verdedigen tegen de Khaak, voordat ze alles en iedereen op hun weg doden.

This game is exactly like X-BTF and X-Tension, but more complex and challenging. So you maybe better trying X-Beyond The Frontier first, in order to avoid struggling to climb up the steep learning curve, for this game. The best tip is to avoid Kha'ak M3s and M2 class ships as well as Xenon M2 ships, as those nasties can tear your ship into scrap metal in seconds.

If you already mastered X-BTF and X-Tension, then you maybe best to use Money Cheat as trying to rebuild your Space Empire is time consuming. Trust me, you best off using Money Cheat - just enough for a Argon M3 equiped with as much it can carry and the best shields & lasers. But for this game it is maybe best NOT to use any Cheats or Mods that will "***modify***" your stats - that will mess it up. You may feel to regret having your Stats modified but it is up to you and use the Money cheats AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Don't use any untested or not so promising addons or mods that may ruin your saves, as those things can corrupt your saves. As that will mean you will have to start all over again, if that is the case. And please don't shoot at ships or stations except those belonging to Pirates, Xenon and Kha'ak. Otherwise your saves will have your stats with a negative and irreversible reputation.

Economic simulator IN SPACE! You will HATE this game if you expect to fly around blowing stuff up like a bad Wing Commander clone and I will laugh at you for it. This game is for people who extract joy from maximzing profits as they dominate the market on space weed and use their illicit drug money to build an armada to destroy entire races because a transporter from a neighboring sector bought all the energy cells for their worthless wheat farm.

Do you like spending long hours establishing your empire?
Do you like big learning curves?
Do you like working a second/third job?
Do you want to wreck the economy?

If you answered yes to those questions you will enjoy this game, otherwise just go away before you become another one of those people who just doesn't get it and hates the X series without really knowing why. Unless you hate Rebirth, that's different.

There are some features about this game i like over the later ones (such as flying in stations and actually seeing characters outside of ships). It feels like a mix of beyond the frontier and x3. If you have never played any of them, pick up the super box during a steam sale. its worth it.

So, a quick review of X2 The Threat.
X Games are a genre unique unto themselves. The game is basically a sandbox universe made up of multiple sectors or solar systems connected by jump gates.
The main objects in the sectors are factories which consume and produce products; and different kinds of space ships flying about doing different tasks; such as freighters collecting or delivering products, military ships defending the sector, pirates doing their business (they don’t bother you too much), and a mysterious enemy called the Khaak (that will bother you relentlessly).
You can choose the kind of role you want to play. Be a pirate hunter, stealing their ships and selling them. Become a pirate yourself if you want. Build a commercial empire with factories in multiple sectors and your own fleet of freighters – and get rich so you can buy the high-end ships and equipment and go and conquer the universe. It’s really up to you.
There is a storyline you can follow if you want. It’s not great really; but you can drop in and out of it as you like.
X2 is not an arcade space dog fighting game. If that is what you want you will be disappointed. The game requires a lot of time to learn and play. For those who like sandbox simulation games, with an emphasis on building an empire from scratch X2 The Threat is excellent. Although that said the subsequent iterations have improved the gameplay and graphics. So if you want to play just one X game this might not be the one to choose. The whole series is available here on Steam, so do a little research and decide which one you want to jump into.
(ps I have the game on Steam but I played a retail copy)
