12 Months wait for this turkey!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X Rebirth (PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
I preordered this game on 25th April 2012 and did so on the basis that I've played all the series from X Beyond The Frontier through to Terran Conflict and have spent the best part of this afternoon wondering why Egosoft took a successful series and spent god knows how long to come up with this turkey.
With previous games you had a sense that you were actually flying around and exploring, but with this, you seem to spend endless minutes travelling within space lanes to get to somewhere, where you fly to yet another space lane without ever having a sense that you know what your are doing or what is going on.
It only arrived today, and it has already been patched. This is truly unacceptable in this day and age. Companies should release a game when it's finished, and I wonder if this a beta version because it's so bad.
The voice acting is amateurish and ponderous, the graphics look dated and the gameplay, well, sadly non existent.
Awful, truly awful. Egosoft should be ashamed and embarassed by this release.
