    Almost great; instead...empty

    This could have been a great game. Unfortunately, the content is extremely lacking, and the player's ability to interact with the universe is barely noticeable at best. Frontier released an incomplete game, with promises... Read Full Review

    Elite: Tedious

    Look, I'll keep it short.Was really looking forward to this, but after the nice graphics and the novelty of flying spaceships about wears off (about 2 weeks if you're lucky), the whole boring fakery of the game will driv... Read Full Review

    Best scifi game I have played.

    I have hoping for this game since I played Elite 2 when I was 13 years old. Exploring and landing on planets and taking in some of the amazing views was so awesome back then, that I still dream about them today. And whe... Read Full Review

    Just what I was looking for - "Immersion"

    This game is the real deal. The feel of immersion in space is incredible. Great soundtrack, great graphics. Awesome gameplay. The sense of discovery is phenomenal. It has all real life planets that exist in the milky wa... Read Full Review

    A breath of fresh air

    I play a lot of games and I've played them since the eighties. I don't write too much reviews and some games really deserved a review. I should have written one for those games but I didn't because I'm simply too lazy.Bu... Read Full Review

    One of the best space sims of 2014/2015

    First. Lets get the negative out of the way. The game or rather the vast universe is a bit dry. Any and all goings on will be shown in the common news updates in the station's UI. The news itself isn't very dramatic eit... Read Full Review

    Its got some great elements, but it could use many more features

    First things first - I only found out about this game a couple months back. I did not back it, I bought it outright on launch day and played for about 7-8 hours so far. The news about the lack of off-line mode didn't ph... Read Full Review
