Under development for two years, X²: The Threat has received numerous praise for its stunning in game graphics and open-ended gameplay. GameSpy said in their preview, "Overall, though, X2 could turn out to be one of the truly great space sims, ready to take its place among the Wing Commanders, Freelancers, and Independence Wars of the genre. The visuals alone may well carry this game to greatness."

In addition to the featuring graphics and in depth gameplay, X²: The Threat exhibits an amazingly open-ended X-universe that is twice the size featured in its predecessor, X: Beyond the Frontier.

X2 makes you feel like you're a part of a living, breathing cosmos," said Avault's Dustin Arient in his first look at the epic space simulation.

"Fans of Elite and Privateer have long been awaiting a follow-up title and we are excited to bring them X2: The Threat," said Paul Lombardi, CEO of Enlight Interactive.

I've also heard complaints about gameplay, performance, joystick issues, and tons of other things. I wasn't sure I wanted a Elite-clone, but after hearing all the negativity I'm not going to get this. I'm going to pick up DXIW instead. Seriously.
