Ok i bought this game during the summer sale and so far I like it!
Open world.. You can do what you want to do if you have some imagination!
A large mapped out universe with safe systems.. Not so safe systems.. And just down right Angry systems!
Even more systems that arn't mapped out... Not sure how many so far, I have only found a few of them and their hard to find which is a good thing! Remember Space is a big place so it shouldn't be to easy to find everything!
You can Generate space stations in locations you chose that arn't to close to other stations.. Gives you a tactical advantige or a trading benifit, howerver you wish to use it! Thats kinda up to you to figure out!
You can Mine, Trade, Do Missions from a mission board, or just Pirate cargo from NPC ships to make credit's
Guessing 30 plus spacecraft frames to chose from..Or upgrade to with in game credits if you can find a station that has them!
Upgradeable engins, cargo bays, wings, fuel tanks and Sheilds if you can afford them!
A really Neat wepons lab where you can craft your own version of the perfect Beam or Partical wepons!
A hanger in most stations where you can store a frame for later use..... For a price of course!
Good flight model with inerta or thrust driven modes and even an in atmosphere mode.
Custimazable enough controlls without being just way to much and confusing!
Can land on planets and planet base Locations.
Can fly inside some very large astroids and find some lootable stuff!
Can get a Mech Walker and walk planetside or even fight planetside if you can find something to fight!
Good bit of tech to buy in the stations and with limited space it make's you think and make desisions on how you want your ship to performe, Not enough room for everything so you have to decide whats important for the way you want to play.. The largest ships in the game cant carry everything even! and thats a good thing, makes you think!
I have read some reviews about a hard learning curve.... This is my first space sim since Tie Fighter and it took a while to learn but it wasn't bad and that was part of the fun in my opinion!
Theirs more good stuff but just cant remember it all!
Making credits is to easy once you figure out where to buy low and sell high... Some players think you have to find the lost city but you can make credits really easy just paying attition to prices... On my second Pilot I made 50 Million in just a few hours of game play because I had figured it out on my first pilot.. Needs to be a bit harder to make credits so you can't just get the best gear so quick!
TO HARD TO FIND OTHER REAL PLAYERS TO PLAY WITH.... I have managed to log onto a multiplayer server but I was the only player on it :( Would be nice if you could find others to play with! Seems like not to many people play multiplayer sadly..It might be fun!
Not enough Places to store loot in the hangers...Yes you can use multiable hangers in multible Space Ports but Dang their expensive and a pain being so spread out... Would like to see them let you chose a hanger locaion or build a Space Port to use as your home base and let you store multable ships and alot of looted and Pillaged goodies!
Can't figure out how to create my own Guild? Would be neat if you could start your own guild then search out an uncharted galaxy... then build it up with Ports and stuff and have your own guild Galaxy, If you could name it that would be even cooler but some peeps would do some real silly names I relize sadly!
If you lack Imagination... You will probably get bored after a while... Persionally I keep trying to find new stuff and tinkering around to see what i can do.... I'm still learning the deepth of the game!
Anyway all in all it has been fun even if I havent got to play multiplayer yet! But maybe someone will see this review and we can find a server and start building a universe!
