I purchased this game waiting for X3 to come out; I thought that is would be a nice warm up to the new game. The advertisement on the box and even the opening movie promised an exciting game. What was delivered was a very poorly designed game. The game started with a tutorial that essentially provided nothing but aggrevation. The controls were exceptionally poor... let's be honest they are the worse that I have ever come across. After 30 minutes struggling I removed the game and stuck it on my shelf as a reminder what a true waste of money.
I cannot bring myself to buy the sequel. It is a shame, I really do love the premise of the game.
