Sobre este jogo

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.

Eu literalmente não consegui jogar este jogo. Primeiro que ele apresenta grandes incompatibilidades com o meu sistema, algumas que não atrapalham, como por exemplo não poder rodar no modo janela em sistemas acima de 16bits (...), mas outras que matam de raiva. Só para ilustrar a situação, existe conflito entre os controles (o jogo fica trocando entre controle e teclado), e alguns comandos precisam ser usados pelo teclado (girar a nave por exemplo) e outros no controle (acelerar, por exemplo) e absurdamente não é possivel trocar, já que se o fizer, o jogo reinicia e volta aos comandos antigos!!!

A primeira missão não consegui passar - mesmo após cumprir o que o narrador manda, nada acontece - então pulei, pois se tratava de um tutorial. Ocorre que logo na segunda é possível se perceber erros nos diálogos, já que a mesma fala é repetida mais de uma vez, e isso acontece com várias falas... Os objetivos durante as missões são ditos em inglês e sem legendas, o que complicaria mais ainda se eu não entendesse inglês, e se há algum lugar em que eles podem ser vistos eu não achei... Talvez por causa da bagunça causada pela mistura entre o controle e o teclado.

Os gráficos e audio ruins são aceitáveis considerando a idade do jogo, mas o que não se pode engolir são os vários poblemas acima citados, e mesmo se não fosse a bagunça das teclas, a jogabilidade é porca e o enredo também. Enfim isto é o contrário daquilo que se espera de um jogo, precisa melhorar para ser ruim, e supera barreiras de negatividade que não achei que existiam. LIXO (1/10)

O jogo é bem antigo, mas tem uma mecânica interessante.Você ficará muuuito tempo apenas por conta do comércio até poder entrar na parte da história com ação de verdade. E a í o jogo acaba, simplesmente. Se você gosta de simuladores e acabou comprando esse, prepare-se para "voar" muito mesmo. No começo é muito chato, mas no final, os últimos setores são até um tanto difíceis de vencer.

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.
