このゲームについて

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.

Features

Really good game if you like chilled out space ship games. I loved it and definately looking forward to playing the sequels to this game!
Overall 9.5/10 (-0.5 for being a bit buggy)
Pros:
-Lot of hours can be put into this game
-Very many upgrades that will constantly challenge the income that you get
-At your own pace you can choose to ruch through missions or take your time to earn a lot of income and max out your ship

Cons:
-Needs a bit of optimization before it can be run without any problems (I have Windows 7)

Xシリーズの始まり。
 クソとも神とも評されるほど、人を選ぶゲーム。後の作品をプレイ済みならやめたほうが良い。やったことのない私ですら、これはひどいと思う出来だしw
 何しろゲーム時間の半分は移動時間だからね!まあ宇宙ってのは元来そういうもので、そこを誤魔化さずに表現したって点はある意味評価できなくもないけれども。
 日本語化は不可、だって英語字幕すら無いからね!会話ログも何をしろっていうメッセージもないから、ヒアリング能力必須である。私は無いけど。

 今作はどちらかと言えば「スペース経済シムのコンバットあえ」と言った感じであるため、何時間も転売を繰り返したり需要と供給を見定めて工場を運営して増えていく金を眺めるのが好きな人向けであり、せっかちや戦闘狂な肉食系プレイヤーにとっては愚にも付かぬクソゲーだと断言できる。


ストーリー
 主人公カイル・ブレナンは地球のテストパイロットである。ある日、ジャンプドライブの試験中の事故により、見知らぬ宇宙に転移してしまい、見たこともない異星人に助けられた。
 彼らは商業的な異星人であるため、無償ではなく金で返せと言われる。そんな金はないというと100cr貸してやるから稼げという。
 そうして交易を繰り返して金を稼ぎ、工場を建設しては金を稼ぐついでに地球に帰る方法がわかるかもしれない地球人に似ているらしいArgonという種族を探すために必要な身を守る装備を買うための金稼ぎの日々が始まる。

 故にこのゲームでは金稼ぎが主目的となり、戦闘はあまり期待してはならない。


ゲームプレイ(金儲け)
 基本は交易。まずはEnergy CellやNostrop Oilの転売で金を稼ぐ。稼いだ金でSingularity Engine Time Accelerator(SETA)を買えば移動にかかるプレイ時間を短縮できる。さらに貨物室を増やしていけば、より儲けは多くなるだろう。
 なお買取品は各施設で決まっているので、遠くの星系から珍しいものを大量購入してきても売れない。買ってくれるものとその価格をメモっておいてから買うべき。

 最終的には工場建設で稼ぐことになる。仕様について解説してる日本語サイトはないので、私の推測も含むがここに残しておく。
  • 最初は買い方に戸惑うだろう。マップで□で表示される船を雇ってから工場を買い、運んでもらう必要があるのだ。そしてMine系なら対象の小惑星を向いて、それ以外では置きたい場所で話しかけることで設置できる。
  • 大抵の工場はEnergy Cell単体か、加えていくらかの材料を必要とする。何を必要とするかは事前にわからないため、セーブして試してから決断したほうが良い。
  • 工場では材料を運ぶトランスポーターが雇えるが、材料1種につき1機しか働かないので、1種しか無い工場で複数雇っても意味は無い。護衛はぶっちゃけいらない。
  • 商品は手売りか、NPCトランスポータが来てくれないと売れない。当然他より安ければよく来るし、高ければめったに来なくて売れ残る。
  • 最初はOre Mine、Teladianium Foundryあたりがオススメ。前者はMineral Scaner(2.2万cr)を買って生産量(Yield)の高い小惑星を見つける必要があり、後者は生産も消費も早いので材料が枯渇しやすいのが難点。
  • NPCは大抵1000単位で買っていくので、1000以上は作れるだけの資金を計算して預けておけば放置可能になる。例えばOreは燃料4につき1生産なので、燃料12crで買うとすると4*1000*12+αで5.5万ほど預けておけば放置できる計算になる。
  • たくさん工場を作って供給が増えれば当然価値が下がり、それまでの平均価格ですら売れなくなる。供給過多だと全く売れなくなるので程々に。
  • 需要に関しては逐一NPC工場のinfoを見て確認しておく。複数箇所で1000を超えるような需要のある商品は、売れ筋といえる。Pranid領域におけるNostrop Oilとか。必要素材を作る工場も必要なので初期投資額半端無かったが、結果的にはNostrop Oil御殿が建てられるくらい儲かった。


戦闘
 戦闘はおまけ。いいね?
  • 自機は自分の射撃や雑魚の一撃ですら激しく揺れ、弾速の遅さもあってとにかく当てづらい。
  • 上下左右の転回は慣性がついていて、しかも逆側に舵を切ってピタリと止まるテクが使えないので、慣性の分を計算して早めに舵を戻す必要がある。でもコレはコレで慣れれば楽しい。慣れればね。あとチューンすればね。
  • 敵の大型艦は普通にやると速すぎて逃げられるので、正面から突っ込んでくるまで待ち、すれ違いざまにGammaHEPTぶっ放して倒そう。


難点
 ありすぎてどれをあげたら良いのやら…
  • キーコンフィグがあるが、登録したキーが表示されないし、ごく一部しか変えられない。それどころか説明にすら出てこない操作もある。
  • 字幕等文字による説明が殆ど無い。雰囲気を保つ役には立っているが、ゲームとしてはマイナス過ぎる。
  • 一応Pキーからの情報でやるべきことがLogとして閲覧できる。が、ほとんどは無意味なログの羅列で見づらい。とにかくUI全般に難がある。
  • セーブ方法が各ステーションで10crで売っているアイテムのみ。ドッキングにはリスクもあるのに、それをしないとセーブ出来ない。しかも自分の工場ではセーブできない。
  • ステーションから出た瞬間、目の前にNPCトランスポータがあって即死っていう事故が極偶に起こる。それで何時間無駄にしたことか…。


アドバイス
  • まず必ずすべきは、スマホや漫画など暇つぶしできる何かを用意すること。長い移動時間をどう過ごすかでゲームを続けられるかが決まると言ってもよい。
  • できるだけ早くSETAとSETA Boosterを買うべし。移動時間が短縮できる。ちなみに前者はJキー、後者はShift+Jで使う。Boosterはエンジンチューンを13以上にすれば動きが安定する。
  • Docking Computerもできるだけ早く手に入れるべき。これはロックオンさえできればワンボタンで即時ドッキングできる(15km先のステーションにすら!)という、この作品随一の便利装置。…風情はなくなるけどね。
  • Ecliptic Projector:F5キーでグリッドを表示する。自分の角度や向きやゲートの方向が分かりやすくなる。
  • Motion Analysis Relay system:他の船に自動でついていける装置だが必要ない。
  • 公式のパッチをあてるとnoSteamになる。すると加速ツールAlquadeも効くように!まあ気づいたのはクリアした後だったけどね…。
  • 急ぐな!クリアを目指すな!クリアを目指せば全てが苦行にしかならなくなる。金ためてるうちに結果的にクリア出来るようになってた、くらいが精神的に一番良い。
  • マップ

Great game.
If you ever wanted to be Han Solo or Mal Reynolds... the X series is highly recommended.

The graphics in the first one aren't as advanced as the later games but they're still good.

Unless you're getting this for the sake of nostalgia, don't bother. It's just full of frustrations and inconveniences that you won't find in modern games. Credit is owed to the people who put this package together and I do appreciate the effort - there's even a complete guide in the game folder. It started up on Windows 10 without any problems, and I was able to get it working with my Logitech Extreme3Dpro (thrust control does not work, as with most of these older games you have to bind "A" and "Z" to the side buttons).

I played it for a little bit, but I just can't get into it. The graphics are too bad for me to tell the difference between the different types of stations. The trading system isn't too bad, and I like the system for building your own stations. I'm hoping X2 will be better.

A litte bit older but this Game is still a very Good Game to Start in the X-Series. Especially the Story is really well made and interesting. Only the Start is a littebit rough but once you get going it will be a Fun Game indeed. Get it with the X-Superbox.

As unappealing as dry toast.

It gets caught in your throat and makes you *cough* and *hack*
like and old house-cat.


However, I LOVE SPACE SIMS and this game is one.

Why not?

This is a slow game. 2 hours in you're still in the tutorial. The space physics feel like driving a submarine. It from from 1999 and looks like it and many corners feel like it.

But there is so much character, style and love put into this, and so much of the design was made specifically because it would make a better game.

If you're a patient person who can enjoy the little things, this game is for you.

Complex trade/fight/think/build space simulator. I played so many hours X2, X3 TC and X3 AP I have app 1000hrs logged on + this one several years ago. Still this very first game is amazing even today, which is end of 2015. Will buy it again. It has some charm to push you play it again, game created with love. Only true classics can pass test of the time and X: Beyond the Frontier achieve it. BTW this game does get quite bad reviews back than, because nearly non of the reviewers uncover true and complex space sim inside. Game starts slowly, but I really like how you start from zero and grow to hero. True legend /and I am saying this even after I played a lot elite on my zx spectrum back than/.

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.

This game is exactly like the Elite game: Frontier - Elite II. But more better and simplier. The only thing is if you got games like X2 and X3 then you may not adapt to the controls and how to manage those open-ended games. Start with this game and try it! If you get stuck or think you need more cash in-game, look into the Egosoft site. And use the HEX editor tool in your x-btf saves. Read more info in Egosoft or the Cheat sites.

The only thing that this game got, compared to the newer X-Series games is the afterburner turbo boost and the SETA Boost Extension that isn't featured in the newer series. I have to warn you if you play X2 The Threat onwards you maybe lost on how to interact, trade and fight -- as it is a steep learning curve. So start with X - Beyond the Frontier and maybe have a glance on my guides and video tutorials if you are interested.

X Beyond The Frontier is the first of the X series and it's funny how little has changed since this incarnation and all the way to Albion Prelude. Some things are sorely missing, such as the ability to change ships but the core of the game back then was much the same.

While the technology has gone leaps and bounds since this game was released, the quality of the graphics has exploded and features that were unthinkable back in those days have been added the core of the game, the essence of what an X game is, remains much the same to this day.

You are a pilot on a experimental spaceship in a universe, as the game starts events unfold that leave you stranded in alien space with no way home. And that's about all the direction you will get from this game. There is a plot hiding somewhere and occasionally you will come across bits and pieces of it but following it is entirely optional and most players will probably choose to ignore it for the majority of the game.

The core of the game is, quite simply, trading, fighting and exploring. You travel around the universe finding new systems, new enemies and new trade hubs. As you increase in notoriety and your financial means increase you gain access to new weapons and equipment for your ship and new avenues open up for you.

The learning curve is steep enough to make even the most doped up Tour de France rider think twice before attempting the climb. The game explains only the very basics to you, everything else you have to figure out for yourself. This is something that makes Beyond The Frontier, and in fact all X games, something of a challenge to get into. The game is extremely unforgiving to newcomers and unless you have the patience to restart a few times this probably isn't the game for you.

Despite it's age Beyond The Frontier is still a good game with some good solid core gameplay. It is also a game with it's share of faults the most prominent being the lack alternate starting points and the inability to change ships in game something which makes starting a new game rather cumbersome, even for an experienced player. The similarities between this and later incarnations is of course also a detriment to buying it nowadays because you will get much the same game if your purchase the latest installment in the series, only it will be an improved game.

It's a great game, but it unfortunately suffers from a couple of problems, some major and some minor.

The tutorial isn't really all that helpful, it gives you an idea of what you're doing--it lets you get comfortable with the X-Shuttle itself, but what you're supposed to do is not really elaborated on.

The trading system is good, but I feel like it would be better if you were able to walk around these production centers and stuff (Although, you can do some EVA in X Tension). The music is good at setting an atmosphere, it gives you a feeling that you really are flying through space--not some high-intensity, strings-heavy Hans Zimmer ♥♥♥♥, of course, the music is well-situated when you get into a fight, but even the fighting has its own problems.

The enemy AI is awful, it's just awful. I would find more challenge if the game had them fire back or at least tail you closely, but instead they turn into giant Kamikaze-units and try to ram into you, leading to cheap deaths. You usually have to try to take them out in one pass or just make sure you're ALWAYS behind them, or approaching them in a way where they can't turn and fly into you.

The graphics are really a mixed bag. The use of low lighting and lens flare make it feel like a science-fiction title, with stars' blaring light casting through your ship. Planets are also well-drawn. But the ships and centers look very...well...I would say "1990's" if this game wasn't developed in 1999. The graphics are bland, a lot of grays, greens and reds when more life could be put in.

Ship control is great! The ship handles pretty well. There isn't too much to be said since it flies wrather swell.

As an overall verdict, the game is...decent. The ship control is good, and background graphics are good, I love the trading system and it's fun to become anything from a supply merchant, to a drug supplier, to a bounty hunter and, when you amass enough credits, entrepeneur. The game is hampered by poor enemy AI and bland graphics with ships and stations in space. But, overall, I'd recommend it.

This is a great piece of CLASSIC gaming. And that makes it NOT accessible for most of the possible audience, sadly.
If you REALLY want the hardcore, old-fashioned challenge, go for it. Otherwise set course for the newer installments in the series!

A program of complexity, this game is daunting at first sight, its graphics and mechanics are not of familiarity, and learning anything is severely limited. But with a little patience, this game grows in your favour, as you learn each ship, race, station, and mechanic of this diverse X Universe. Beyond what you think it is, it's a game of occasional trial and error, however with the internet to help, you can be in command. It is the start of a new way to think of this series, to propose a new way you see retro highlights, and to really see Beyond the Frontier.

The First X Game.

For one of the early space sims this is really one of the best i have played.
Yes the graphics are dated now however if you have not played the original then maybe you should.

As this is more of a linear story driven game with some extra tading/freeplay built in it is still quite good.
I still say not up to freelancer level but still pretty damn good.
