If you are reading this then you must be considering buying this game. Please do not !.
X3 Albion Prelude was so good I assumed this would be fantastic, especially when I saw the YouTube videos. Whilst it looks gorgeous (imho) the game is a joke to play. In some sectors the frame rate is atrocious, even on monster PC`s . The game is buggy and the campaign is difficult to play due to random crashes. The developers have released a patch adding auto save every time you leave a station. What does that tell you ? The problem I have is that even if the game ran fast and the bugs were removed, I am not sure if I would still play this. I have had a few occasions when the game has been kind to me, for an hour or so, but I quickly get bored. Walking around stations talking to badly animated characters is no fun at all, whoever thought it was must be a lunatic. I could go on but why bother ? I do not necessarily go along with the X box theory but I can understand the cynicism. I work in Quality Control and if I allowed products out like this then I would be sacked . This was not ready for release and I feel certain that it will never be patched into something you can play ! .Avoid!
