After the 3.1 update, this game finaly is what it should be since the release. Egosoft fixed a lot of bugs and its finaly good enougth to play and you wont have any more problems, I promise !
I pre-ordered the collectors edition, on release date I skipped school just to play it from the first moment. After the installation I sat down with my can of redbull and chips, I was hyped to Albion and back, I was so ♥♥♥♥ing hyped, I was the hypetrain itself. BUT after the first 2 hours of gameplay I just sat infront of my PC, tears in my eyes, clinching my teath. My body was shakeing, I was angry, so angry. You had failed me Egosoft, I spend hours of my life playing your games, I played X: Reunion around 800 hours and X: Albion prelude around 500. I was so disapointed, you failed me, YOU *UCKIN FAILED ME !
I didnt touch the game, or just rarely when they released new updates...but after some time it came to my mind that you, dear Egosoft, builded a new game from scratch. You left the old X behind, you made something truely new, something unique, something fantastic... after this reaisation I wasnt mad anymore... you build a new game from scratch, with a new engine, with a new AI and with new graphics/ships/stations, it took a lot of work, a lot of willpower and a lot of blood to create the basics...but you did it. It wasnt finished, but it does not have to be. You Egosoft, you care about your games, and this is what came back in my mind. The first X3: Reunion build was buggy as hell, the skripts didnt work the halft time and ships constantly crashing in my stations and jumpgates...but you fixed a lot in the first months/years...
AND you did the same with X: Rebirth...after a year its finaly that what it should be, a masterpiece...and I know there is much more to come, because Egosoft, you CARE about your games and I just can tell every player/owner, buy/play this game, it is worth it. Its playable, dont listen to the people who are trying to badmouth it. X:Rebirth is complex, its difficult to programm and you should give it a try. Its good money and you spend, I know but its worth every penny, because Egosoft gives you free DLCs and Patches, Fixes and content for the next years.
Now to the game:
Massive changes to trade/build/fight/explore-content, you only own a single ship now, the Albions Pride/Skunk. Many people see this as a downside but I like it. You can change it to your likeing (new engines, cockpit, weapons, etc.).
Also tradeing and building got more time consuming and rewarding, because you realy feel like you have archived something. Missions realy pay out now, not the crappy 20k for fighting fregatts or whole fleets, now you can easily earn millions with one misson (it will be a difficult one, but fun) so yes...overall a little bit more difficult.
Meh, there's still room for improvement, but thats normal. You have nice fights but you mostly will get beaten because of the mass of the enemys fleet.
A.W.E.S.O.M. 'nougth said !
WAY better than "X3: XXXXXX"s Graphics. Nice improvements - still its hardwareconsuming, so watch out. Maybe Egosoft will reduce it in some more patches.
Fazit: solid 8.5/10 from the current phase, maybe a 9 for the free DLC, thx for that :D
