|yes I played the NEW demo and im impressed with the new graphics overhaul, and the control is alot better than before but I still cant control the ground vehicles with my joystick even though I can control the space ships and fighters , if I could gain control of the ground craft with my joystick Ide bolt to the store or send you my first born or something like that.
To sum it up im floored by that demo dsmart and im angry because thats what i expected to get when i bought into UniversalCombat the first time but its ok because you seem to keep at it no matter what you keep improving this game but you really need to fix the joystick thing on the planets so I can control my craft then also I see you have addresed every thing I have mentioned over the past with this game, I was the one who suggested the random wildlife , birds, fish, animals, floating clouds on the planets ect and I see you have addresed these things.
Yes there was a error on my part on the rateing of X3 that was a anticipated rateing based on what I have read about it but noone the less its no secret I wont be buying X3 but will be probley purchasing UniversalCombat based on that NEW demo I saw.
X3 is being touted as a X2 1/2 so I rated it a little lower then X2 based on my love for cockpit graphics and they also have mentioned the space combat still sucks so I gave it that rateing but I was still on the fence at the time of buying the damn game anyway because im a space junkiee but i have since changed my mind based on alot of what I have read today.
