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: I enjoy it and the vast open space it offers. Kind of like Freelancer in that aspect but, more difficult to learn. Many mod upgrades for it and lots of hours of just flying but, the graphics are good and the game is alright.
Summary: If you like to fight/build/trade your way in a futuristic universe check this game out. The campaign is so-so, the world is much better. Of course like any other sandbox game, it gets boring (or you burn out) after a while. Still, while it lasts it's very good. One thing to note is the exceptional support from the developers (I think only Witcher and CD Projekt come close).
Summary: This game is complex and difficult to survive in - not for the fainthearted or those looking for cheap thrills. However, the possibilities are endless and total galactic domination is one of those possibilities!
Summary: I've owned X3 Reunion for at least five years, and I've started playing it a dozen times without getting past that confused first look. I've even read the manual. I left it installed for the simple reason that I've always liked this style of open game, but this one took some mental effort to get started. Now that I made the initial push to get rolling in the X universe, I get it. Yes, it's hard to start.
The game is exactly like EVE....only just you alone.

Summary: Love: Mission, graphics, being on your own, no rules to follow. A true adventure game. Dislike: The sound track can get boring fast. Each galaxy have their own theme song. It gets lame after awhile. Hard to start off.
Summary: One of the first things this game's manual tells you is, "Say goodbye to a social life and/or sleep." This couldn't be truer! After I started playing this game, some of my friends thought I died because I became so engrossed in it. This game is very much like a solo version of EVE Online, which has its merits and its drawbacks.
Summary: To be blunt, this game shows what can be accomplished in the video game industry. This feels like a labor of love. It isn't a quick sit down and shoot up some bad guys for a few minutes type of game. This is more for people who want to sit down and totally immerse themselves in a massive universe. This one is a rarity. This one you don't play; you experience. Across the top of the box it reads "Trade Fight Build Think". It delivers on those promises in spades.
