Summary: I bought and installed this and happened to pick the one with Tages DRM. I can't play the game and it's proving to be a major chore uninstalling the DRM. Every time I restart my computer I get a warning that Tages is incompatible with Windows 7 64bit and has been disabled.
Summary: Game is completely unplayable on (at least certain systems running) Windows 7. This includes both X3 Reunion and X3 Terran Conflict. Both games crash to desktop within a few minutes of playing -- this has been verified on TWO different systems that I own.
Summary: I'm not sure what everyone else is smoking, but this game is horrible. Boring and worthless. I don't care how cool the graphics are, if the game isn't fun to play, then it goes in the trash, which is where this game is heading unless I can find someone who wants it, which may be difficult.
Summary: I never received this game from the seller. I contacted them after a month and they gave me a refund immediately. I highly recommend buying this game from a different source as it is a great game to play.
Summary: bought this game recently and tried various configurations to get it working, and unfortunately unable to get it going. Have quad core system unlocked with 16 GB ram and decent graphics card. Read somewehere it may have issues with creative soundcards, which might cause the issue.
What a waste of 30 hours of my life (not to mention my money)

Summary: Ok, I know this type of game gets its niche followers who'll love it nomatter what its flaws are but I'm not one of them. I hate giving bad reviews but this one screams out to me to help anyone thinking of buying this game to avoid the mistake.
Summary: This game is 1 all most impossible for newbies to get started (need at least 24 hours game time) 2 very poor interface 3 glitchy 4 patches introduce new faults (patch 2.1 introduces vista compatibility issues that weren't present in earlier patches) 5 Runs badly on my highend alienware machine 6...
Summary: Loving this game. The graphics are great, combat is challenging and the economic model that underpins the gamne is a thing of beauty. Not for the impatient, but one of the most engrossing and engaging games I have ever played.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game but it is the single dullest one I have ever played. You go from gate to gate to gate to gate dock undock, go speak to commander this or Lt this ... sigh...its very difficult to get into.
