X2 und X3, nice looking as they are, they don't worked for me as a game. Theye were more work than entertainment, with all this clunky and overly complicated interface.

Yeah, I really really wanted to love X3.

But it really felt like a little too much on the work-to-fun ratio.

I think if I had had more time to sink into it, I could have been hooked, but it needed to have just a little better balance to keep me there.

I have that problem with some games that are probably awesome (The Witcher, I'm looking at you) - if I have to make a huge up-front investment of my time to get to the point where I'm hooked, you're probably going to lose me. There are a TON of great games out there, and I just don't have the time to sink a couple weeks worth of my fun time into every one of them to find out which are diamonds in the rough.

(And I give a LOT of games that are rough around the edges their due, believe me...but those games have something that keeps me playing long enough to see their brilliance.)

X was great, but I never really got into X2 or X3.
I agree. X i played to death, hours and hours and hours summed up to weeks and months ... but X2 und X3, nice looking as they are, they don't worked for me as a game. Theye were more work than entertainment, with all this clunky and overly complicated interface.

I don't know guys, X is the best space sim i've played, and that includes freelancer and iwar. There is just so much freedom to play the way you want to, plus mods open it up even more. This has been on my hard drive for many, many years.

The X series was. . . OK. I wish someone would revive I-War.

I wouldn't call it terrible, but the combat and flight mechanics were certainly lacking. The games are definitely pretty though, and I love the music too.
