When you consider how pubs like EA trash one dev after the next even if you think this guy is a jerk you have to respect the fact that he has stayed the course and makes one of the only fully featured true space sim left in existence.
Honestly I bet that at least 1/2 of you would like the last UC game released. And this new one pretty much puts to rest the remaining complaints about graphics. every ship has its own cockpit, the space stations look awesome, everything is to scale, you can still do trading, explore planets, destroy cities, mine for minerals and engage in massive space combat.
I hope this new game gets the credit it will probably deserves.
