About the Game

The Sequel to the award winning X²: The Threat introduces a new 3D engine as well as a new story, new ships and a new gameplay to greatly increase the variety in the X-universe. The economy of X³: Reunion is more complex than anything seen in the X-universe before. Factories are being built by NPCs, wars can affect the global economy, NPCs can trade freely and pirates behave far more realistically.
The Technology: Extensive development has gone into the X³ engine, making full use of DirectX 9 technology, to create dramatic visual effects and stunningly realistic starships. Coupled with the massively enhanced A.L. (Artificial Life) system, X³: REUNION presents players with an ever changing, evolving universe; where a player's actions really can shape the future of the universe.
The new X³ 2.0: Bala Gi Research Missions: The X³ 2.0: Bala Gi Research Missions offers a host of new features and missions, allowing the player to delve deeper than ever before into the X universe.
Space just got a whole lot bigger with the addition of two new sectors and the introduction of the gargantuan Player HQ which allows many exciting new features including the ability to build your own ships and even give them customized space paint finishes. In addition to the new M7 battleship, there is an assortment of new weapons and onboard ship devices to use and explore.

X3 Reunion was introduced to me by a friend. when i first saw the game i wasn't into it. but he insisted. I loaded x3 reunion and x3 terran conflict on my system. I tried it, and never looked back. So what can we do in the universe of X.. i though i'd never ask. You can build a massive Trading Hub or be a trader - pirate - explorer - and when you get there.. a fleet commander of mind blowing hive formations and other formation lines. And when i say build a fleet, i mean buy 200 carriers 200 destroyers 200 corvettes 200 Mammoths. Fill them with missiles for other ships. Shields to repair and ammo. all kinds of stuff for the front lines. here's the fun part... build that fleet 200 times more because you can. if you can mannage them. sit back durring the war, commanding and taking pics like a tourist. at the same time your factories are making everything for your ships and other factories. your trade lines are protected by lasers and also have satelite info feeds to situational awareness. maybe for fun, a mine that i encourage everyone to fly past ;) the squash mine. i would make the info on it read - " Caution, this mine bites the hand that feeds it." when docked at a station you can read funny events, and take on personal contracts looking for ships, lost people and wares. Starting out is slow but its not like your gonna speed through space in 3 minutes and have it all - in one of the X3 series is a ship that simply can never fit through a gate and can build and store a whole fleet. i recommend this game to anyone interested in a different experience. p.s It's nothing like eve

I still love this game. For those like me, who like super deep games with tons of complexity, this game and the other X games are the best of the best imo. The controls suck, but I can forgive that to enjoy the detail and depth that this game offers.

This is not your pew pew game where you blow up entire fleets in your tin can with lasers. This game has economic, diplomatic, combat, black market, exploration, empire building, strategy, and so many more aspects its amazing. This game is like a living galaxy within your computer.

Biggest problem this game suffers imo is the learning curve. You can expect that the first few sittings with this game are going to frusterate you. If you can get past that, you'll enjoy the same complexity that frusterated you to begin with.

The eye candy will lure you in, the gameplay will keep you intrigued and the free-roaming feel will keep you occupied for hours.

I don't understand the gameplay yet but it's fun nevertheless. I liked to fly around shooting anything I see and then getting shot down myself but at least being able to do some climatic barrel rolls in order to avoid some missiles.

This game seemed pretty amazing, but it was single player and personally I can't devote that much time to SP. Recomended because I admire the detail in everything, and the immersion.

Not for those afraid of exponentially steep learning curves.

After years of playing on and off again with over 500 hours both on and off Steam under my belt, I can say this is my favorite game. This won't be universal, though, as the game has a very large learning gap and very little instruction, coupled with a format of gameplay that is best discribed as "love it or hate it". The lack of a tutorial doesn't help.

For those wondering if this is worth playing or buying, one must ask themselved what do they want first. Do you want to be a pirate in space firing on ships outside of the areas controlled by the law, and don't mind the high dificulty?
Do you want to spend many hours trading items from one station to another to gain money and eventually buy your own states, hiring ships to trade for you and leading your new found corporate empire to grand wealth?
Do you want to explore the universe, and all it's mystory and see it's dark secrets, with all the risks that may bring?
Do you want to be a cop, shooting down pirates, evil robots, evil incests and whom ever else may oppose order?
This and much more is in the game.

However: if you want instant gratification, always playing at a fast pace, or everything being handed to you?
Then this game is not for you.
