X: Rebirth review

  • Conclusion: X misses the spot. The occasional bit of spectacle can’t save this boring, broken and charmless space simulation.

Expert Review

20 December 2013
  • Summary: Einstein taught us that space is both homogeneous and isotropic--that is, on a large scale, the universe is smooth and uniform in all directions. It's empty out there. Like many space games before it, X Rebirth depicts an unrealistically vibrant universe bursting with color and texture, and that's as it should be. A near-vacuum makes a dreary backdrop for a video game, at least for a human observer.
  • Pros: Some impressive visual details
  • Cons: Frustratingly broken, Nonsensical dialogue, excruciatingly delivered, Monotonous buying and selling, Putrid interface, Irritating icon hunting

X Rebirth

15 December 2013
  • Summary: The X series is known for being a little rough out of the gate, so when X Rebirth came out with some major bugs, no one was really surprised. Egosoft has been releasing a lot of patches, but the game is still borderline unplayable. It's more than just a few weird glitches or flaws -- nothing in X Rebirth feels ready to be played. Beyond just being glitchy, the core gameplay mechanics are flawed.

X Rebirth

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: X: Rebirth will get better over time, and anyone who’s open-minded enough to look past the ‘X’ branding and see the ‘game’, may even find many hours of entertainment. That’s not to say those of us who wanted a newer, better Albion Prelude or whatever are in the wrong, but Egosoft made the game they wanted to make.

X Rebirth

2 December 2013
  • Conclusion: No matter what happens with stability and bug-fixing patches, its poor controls, awful interface, and dull pacing ensure that X Rebirth will remain unpleasant for all but the most forgiving, die-hard space jockeys. X Rebirth doesn’t give players the power to navigate the inherent complexities of the genre, and instead forces them to crawl at a snail's pace around the galaxy, hunting for vendors and grinding out fetch-quests.
  • Pros: A universe of options
  • Cons: Tedious, pointless travel, Performance and stability, Terrible interface, Cliched campaign

Some things X Rebirth thinks about me that aren’t true

Quarter to Three
18 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Egosoft’s X games are the last word in open-world space sims by virtue of being the only word in open-world space sims. At least in terms of ones that are still in development. X Rebirth, the latest X game, is a mess. This is no surprise given Egosoft’s penchant for releasing messes and then tidying them up after the fact.

X Rebirth Collector

1 week ago
  • Excerpt: La célèbre série de jeux d’exploration spatiale X a fini en apothéose avec X3. Mais force est de constater que, ajout après ajout, extension après extension, la saga devenait bien touffue. Egosoft, le développeur, remet les bases à plat… Comme son nom l’indique, X Rebirth (Renaissance) est un "reboot" de la fameuse saga X qui a pris fin avec X3 Reunion. Un "reboot", si vous ne le savez pas, est une remise à plat plus ou moins complète d’une franchise.

X: Rebirth im Test

23 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Ein Jahr nach dem Release ist Egosofts Weltraumspiel X: Rebirth in der Version 3.0 angekommen, die Patch-Listen sind endlos. Das erste DLC-Addon »The Teladi Outpost« gibt's auch schon. Bleibt die Frage: Ist das jetzt ein gutes Spiel?

Test : X Rebirth

12 October 2014
  • Summary: Le moins que l'on puisse dire, c'est que les aficionados de simulateurs spatiaux n'ont pas grand chose à se mettre sous la dent depuis quelques années. Mis à part un Strike Suit Zero fort sympathique en ce début d'année, aucun titre méritant notre attention n'est sorti ces derniers temps. Alors quand X Rebirth se pointe, avec son monde ouvert et ses promesses de liberté, forcément, on se jette dessus.
  • Pros: La liberté d'action, L'espace, c'est bô, Les nombreuses possibilités, Le suivi d'Egosoft
  • Cons: Visuellement daté, Les stations spatiales franchement moches et qui se ressemblent toutes, Une interface austère et pas toujours très lisible, Certaines mécaniques un peu vieillottes

Handel und K(r)ampf

15 June 2014
  • Summary: Wie sehr wir uns auf den neuesten Teil der X -Reihe gefreut haben. X Rebirth ist aber einfach unfertig und hätte so niemals auf den Markt kommen dürfen. Test beim Käufer? Bitte nicht! Natürlich gehen wir davon aus, dass Egosoft wie gewohnt immer weiter am Spiel arbeitet und nach einiger Zeit ein vollständiges Produkt dabei herauskommt – auch durch diverse Mods der Spieler.
  • Pros: beeindruckende Stationen, gute Ideen, spielerische Freiheit, Fraktionssystem, ständige Updates durch Entwickler, Grafik im Weltraum stimmungsvoll
  • Cons: Logikfehler, Bugs, die Missionen unmöglich zu beenden machen, NPCs lieblos animiert, Crashs, Menüführung zu kompliziert, Performance-Einbrüche auch bei sehr schnellen Computern sowie Freezes
