X3 - Reunion (PC) ... addictive storyline and intense combat/trading action. Utilising the 'X³ Reality' engine, X³ pushes the graphical boundary to movie quality in-game graphics. TRADE in a new economy, dynamically reactive in pricing relative to supply and demand. FIGHT individual dog fights or command full-scale fleets against massive enemy armadas. Budding trade entrepreneurs can BUILD interconnecting factories to create huge space borne complexes, to truly mass produce commodities. THINK through a professional screen-written story line, to unravel the destiny of the galaxy. The X³: REUNION engine utilizes the very latest DirectX 9 graphical technology; pixel-shader technology is used to create realistic reflections across a variety of surface types, while bump maps and specula maps add detail to the geometry of objects. A freshly developed economy system allows for more imaginative ways to conquer your foes via commerce. Functions using established business models of 'Elasticity of demand', 'Economies of scale' and 'Return on investment'. Factories are constructed by non player characters, which can freely trade; wars in sectors affect the universal economy, while opportunities bring challenges to both novice and experienced players."

It's commonly thought that space is infinite, being that it has no beginning and no end, it simply goes on forever. Space simulation X3- Reunion comes closer than any other game before it not just in the sense of accurately depicting and what the future might holds, but the also in capturing it's endlessness in what seems to be an endless game! X3 is an open world (or open universe?) space simulator in which you can play a number of roles depending on how you want to approach the game. For instance you could become a trader, going between galaxies buying produce for cheap in one sector and selling it for a profit in another. Or you could become a pirate, ...

X3 is a game that I bought based on some high praise by a friend. Having bought it I can't see what all the fuss was about. Yes the game is reasonably good and will keep you engaged but only for about 30 minutes.

The choice is yours... or you can, of course, do both! Gameplay: This game is one of the most open-ended games I know. Similar to the GTA series in that respect, ... Read the complete review
