Althogh they feature (nearly) the same universe map, they are actually quite different. AP has some completely new plots and some plots which provide you the same rewards as TC did (e.g. HUB, HQ, own sector), but with different missions. The HUB plot for example is much easier in AP (which you may like or not).
AP introduces some new features, too. There is a stock exchange and the races have a so called "rapid response" which means there are military ships jumping in if enemies attack a station in a race's sector. With the bonus package you can also build such a rapid response wing which is based on a satellite network.
The game is dominated by the war between Terrans and Argon meaning there are some "war sectors" around heretics end where they continously fight regardless which site you eventually support and how much effort you put into this. The only way to end the war is to finish a particular plot.

Long story short: If you liked the challenging nature of some plots in TC (like I did/do), you may find yourself a bit underchallenged in AP. If you focus entirely on trading/building an empire and so on, you'll be probably fine (your freighters should avoid the war sectors though) ;)

just got it. Looks same as TC but new plot. You do seem to get alot of free stuff in the beginning. In 30 min of game play I got M5, M3 with a jumpdrive, M6. So not sure but seems lioke a much easier start than TC.

Its more fun than Rebirth thats for sure.

Everything, its a steaming pile of s**t. This game didn't even had a Beta status when they sold it. You couldn't complete vanilla physically. Some people say it is a failed xbox360 port from egosoft. Egosoft really disappointed the community (me also). Happlily I read the forum posts and seen the videos and hat time to cancel my order. Later I had the opportunity to play it and it is really dumbed down and slow even on oveclocked core 2500K + radeon 7950. Come in a year or two, when the game is playable. It still wont be as open and interesting as previous iterations. Just see the reviews on youtube. What a disappointment.

I am sure Epic was being sarcastic :D

Sarcastic, here is sarcastic. There is IMHO only one good thing to say about X rebirth and that is it got me into X3. Now I live in space. 7 years in development ? There are over 15 people in the forums that doubt that very much.

How could it be a xbox 360 port when it was never on that platform and the 360 could never run it.

Playing Rebirth was the worst gaming experience in my life and I've been playing computer games since the early 1980's. However, it's how I discovered X3 which I really like.
