Summary: I purchased this for my husband and he loves it. I have only looked at the graphics and they are fantastic. He enjoys the game play and all of the different options the player has. It should keep him busy well into winter.
Very nice game. Works great with Wine if you use ...

Summary: Very nice game. Works great with Wine if you use Linux (Lubuntu 14.04 in my case). I've also installed several ship and cockpit mods as well as the Xtended 2.0 mod. The only problem I have is concerns the use of the right stick on my 360 controller. For some reason no matter what setting I use it seems to be ignored. I may try a different controller and see if it performs better.
Summary: Works great on XP, bit of trouble on 8.1 , doesn't recognise every button on my HOTAS but easy fixed if you get "JoyToKey" 374 or 379 off the web. X3 gold is DRM free from the maker. Few things I miss from X2 but otherwise excellent!
Summary: Could not get into it. The interface is klunky and complex. There's a lot of flying through space to get anywhere. Time shift option is helpful but a super thrust would be better (Freelancer). Being able to save only in space stations when it takes a long time to do anything is terrible.
Summary: You will not go wrong buying this. I have not played much after buying it from here.but what i have played it is very extensive and fully living space. Just try it. I do want to mention, that if you do decide to try it, the controls, without a joystick are a bit confusing at first.
Summary: The combat in this game is fairly fun and the trading is ok. Here's my main issue: the game advertises that you can build an empire where ships and stations will operate independently and give you income or you can command a squad of wingmen in combat to help you destroy enemy forces. Unfortunately, the AI is so broken that trade ships crash into each other (and stations constantly) and The combat in this game is fairly fun and the trading is ok.
