I believe these problems are all fixed now.
I recommend playing this game:
-One) After you have played the other X-Universe games first.
Because the earlier games set the scene, the continuing story is
brilliant and worth being part of. It will make you want more
up to this point.
-Two)Playing the earlier games will give you an appreciation of
what may become.
-Three)Rebirth is very different to the others. It is more
picturesque. It Makes the earlier games graphics seem dated
Its one of the most stunning, graphicly, space sims I have played.
I have a few.
-X-Rebirth is beautiful. (full stop) the burning sides of capital ships
as pound laser into them. The wondrous asteroid fields to drift in.
-Nice sound tracks
-Piloting in and around the space stations with little rewards for
simply exploring is refreshing and fun.
-Its a great space sim.
-You have to compare it to its predecessors and it lacks any to
all the depth of game play, variety in ships and items and freedom of
the early games. It seems a very pretty but empty shell in
the face of its foundations.
-If you had never seen the earlier games X-rebirth would make you
very satisfied but the wonderful story and history of the X-universe
is what makes it rich as a universe. You will end up playing the earlier
games and wonder what happened.
So. Again the first things first, and dont be in a hurry, its a big universe
an X-universe. I hope that helps.
I will now rant to add detail.
I must say I have in the first play of the Rebirth
experienced many bugs and issues. Freezers, crashes, lost ships...
(Thats fixed now)
I kept going, the past 'X' incarnations had bought
me far to much to joy and inspiration. I really can
not discribe how much I enjoyed all the 'X'-universe series.
The only word that comes to mind is devotion! I even have the novel
Its really good!
Even more devotion was obvious from the developers of 'X'
to innovation, originality, fun, real progression and all the detail that no other games
deared to have. My experiences of the X-Universe are breath taking.
For the memories and mutual devotion I pushed on and would not
give up on 'X' rebirth'. Playing saving and waiting for
the inevitable freeze. I had to find the fun for two main reasons.
It was worth looking for.
Firstly I trust EgoSoft and our wider community to over
time fix and improve.
It is in a lot of ways the proof of progress and courage to change.
A vision of the future.
I entrusted in the egosoft developer community with hours or near
years of my escapist time, to thier creativity and hard work.
I believe it was time well spent and many out there would be happy to play
X-Rebirth in the same way.
Secondly I started to take a lot more notice
of what was there in the game rather than
what wasn't there.
I had thought if this was my c64 and the
data set had just stop squeaking to reveal
X-rebirth on the screen, I would have wept
at the beautiful art work that is stunningly
stylized, music, physics and the collective ambiance
is like awaking from one dream in to a better one.
This is a beautiful game. But just a baby
new born, reborn.
I had been pretending that I am
traveling in a damaged ship that has lots
of issues and its system crash a bit.
Like a game freeze is life support power loss
dead in space again.
Which seemed fine because its an old ship?!
For the first time I / We are not alone. Theres the co-pilot
which for me seems awesome. To be in a
virtual way sharing the journey which will be
epic and should be shared. I really like the co-pilot feature!
So. The x-universe has been reborn, this is 'Elite' on your 64
bidding to grow up to be fronter then beyond and beyond some more. The cycle
is starting again better bigger.
We are here to help it watch and guide its growth. A bit of trust and
investment and the rewards will be there. Give X-Rebirth a chance
X-Rebirth, I like it. But cant wait for whats to come.
How about you?
