DO NOT BUY THIS GAME
Do not buy this game. It is unfinished, broken, bugged, and unplayable. It is utter trashware and will do nothing but take up space on your hard drive.
How could you?
1st off let me say how much I loved all the pervious X games, the best for me was reunion but there all true worlds where the player can do just about anything he or she can think of. Sadly rebirth is not gone are the X games of old where you have tons of ships weapons to seek out try out and enjoy. Rebirth gives you ONE ship that's right one and only one for the entire game, ohh and on that single ship you have " are you ready for this" 1 weapon that you can upgrade 4 times OMG how exciting. Now you might think the total lack of depth must have been replaced by wonderful graphics and sound and an amazing story, but you would be wrong so very wrong. The "story" is more like a trainer that once again has no depth and that is if you happen to be lucky enough to make it past the multitude of bugs and crashes. Well for me this game was a complete fail even if it worked it should never have been called X anything, no depth none, bad graphics, really bad sound and the one liners are so reparative, many bugs and crashes, if it does run and I am not saying it will unless you have a top of the line computer it will be vary slow and choppy. Most of the time even with a great high end com you will still see allot of hangs glitches its just really bad. I cant in good consensus recommend this game to anyone however if you can get past the total lack of depth and flying one ship with 1 weapon does not bother you then at least save yourself the aggravation and wait a few months for them to at least try to work out the bugs. To the makers of this game I ask HOW COULD YOU?
Great solid game
Very different from the other X games but thats not bad. You have one cool ship and you even get out of it from time to time. You can upgrade different aspects of the ship. The combat it tight and much more fast paced then the other X games. Also you finally get a cockpit view which was something always missing. Game was buggy at first but after the patches it is a much smoother game now a must buy for scifi fans.
