Informace o hře

The Human Race had advanced to the point where we could travel among the stars, we developed giant automated machines to help us colonise other worlds, but there was a fault in their programming and they turned and attacked. Forcing us to lay a trap to protect Earth and exiling the Human race to stay on Earth once again.
500 Years later Kyle Brennan starts his journey by piloting an experimental ship equipped with a new piece of technology allowing it to cross vast distances on its own. However it malfunctions and traps him in a group of sectors inhabited by Aliens, hunted and with no way home, this is his story of survival... Beyond the Frontier...

X: Beyond The Frontier is the first part in the X-Universe series of games developed by Egosoft.

It tells the story of mankind's rise and fall in the universe, and the attempt by Kyle Brennan to help repopulate the stars using a new ship called the Experimental Shuttle, and how he became trapped in a closed group of sectors linked by a series of jumpgates, owing credits to an alien for helping to save him, and hunted by several people. Unknowingly, a group of secret service people are after him, a group who have tried to hide their races secret, that they are the descendants of a group of Humans who saved earth from the Terraformer fleet they created to help colonise the universe.
Now with the Truth coming out, X: Beyond the Frontier allows the player to play as Kyle Brennan on his hunt to find a way home, whilst helping a group of people find the truth about their ancestry, and continue to help save earth from the Terraformers who are now known as the Xenon.

Pretty good space trading game, not complicated at all and easy to get in to. I am enjoying it so far. Hopefully the rest of the series will be as appealing to me. It's worth trying if you like space trading games, and the X super box ever goes on sale or is bundled again.

Tip: there is a brief text file in the game directory you should look at first before starting. It will tell you exactly what you need to do to get going. e.g trade solar cells and buy a SETA so you can move fast right away. If you don't know that you may spoend more than 15 minutes moving at a snails pace and that wouldn't be fun. Definitely do 1 trade, then next immediately grab a SETA and keep going from there.

Reviewing this after trying it out during the free weekend.

For some the graphics might look dated but look past this and it is a gem. This not a bad game especially if you haven't got any other X series games or you want to play it for the plot. If I didn't already have X2 I would have picked this up.

Interesting game.
I can imagine this being a hit, back then in 1999. Seems to be the best old-school economy-business game I've ever played or heard of.

But beginning was quite boring. It gets exciting with your first money-making station, fortunately.

Trading feels very repetetive, as your playership only has very small storage and you don't make too much money.
Even with upgrades for 100 000s of credits, you will never have more than a pitiful limit of 500 carried wares, because upgrades cost more each time you buy them.
Also, the playership is very slow, and speed-increasing upgrades cost you a fortune, without any significant speed increase at all.
While the upgrade system itself is great, the value gained for price is very low.

There's no map and no property menu, you must dock at your stations to manage them or withdraw profit.

You won't be able to fight for most of your playtime, as you don't stand a chance without real equipment - which again costs a fortune. But at least this upgrade is really worth of invested money.

I like how stations work.
They are very cheap, comparing to newer titles. You will get the invested money back in a few minutes.
You just place a station, set right prices, buy a freighter and give a few credits to the station.

Story is very interesting, but stays at background most of the time.

There are also a few problems:
The game works very poorly on Windows 8 (perfect on Windows 7).
There are minor sound issues.


Overall, it's a great old-school game. Enough patience and thirst for learning will bring enjoyement.

So my review will probably end up somewhere and no one will ever read it but here I go nevertheless.

I played this game when it came or some time after it was in a gaming magazine as an extra. It's not that easy as a kid but if you actually know what you are doing it's not that hard. The story isn't the best but it's not that bad either.

There are 6 races, with 5 of them you can trade and build space stations in their systems. The beginning can be a bit slow but as soon as you have yor own station, which you can get after about an hour if you sell the shield you get, it gets quite easy. There are some stations which are just flat out better than others but you can either figure that out yourself or just google it. If you want to explore a bit you can, just fly wherever you want, leave some money in you stations and some transporters and when you come back you will have more money then you left.

Some tips you should listen to:
get the S.E.T.A upgrade it makes the game much more enjoyable.
and get the docking computer from the paranids.

if you have questions just leave them here i'll respond to them.

This game is a bit difficult to start out as the tutorial was... well useless and the manual wasn't really as helpful as it could be. Once you get into the game though it becomes more interesting as you can set up your own production plants and start getting into the finer aspects of trading. If you like trading games this is a good one to get as there is a lot of product to play around with. The combat system is a bit lacking as it's hard to destroy enemies with lasers in the beginning and the enemy AI gets really suicidal taking you with them as they crash into you. Still aside from the occasional nonsense the game itself is unique and can be very fun if your willing to learn how to play the game.
