    Easilly Misunderstood.

    First things first, in many ways X3: Albion Prelude is a DLC/Expansion to X3: Terran Conflict, but in other ways, it is entirely its own game. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this history, X3: Terran Conflict... Read Full Review

    Addictive Space game with Tons of things to do and a great number of detail.

    If you are a Space simulator fan, look no further. The X series is here to reveal this Space merchant, dogfighter, miner, explorer, bountyhunter, pirate that was suppressed inside you for so long. A little bit diffic... Read Full Review

    It is only an addon of X3: Terran Conflict with limited New ships and so call "Stock Market".....

    I was a big EVE ONLINE fan for a few years and always wished a similar single player were available. No idea how all these years I missed the fact that there was the X series by Egosoft going on. I stumbled on this and E... Read Full Review

    Such a great waste of time :)

    Those X3 games are relly timewasters.One can just fly around listen to the music and almost imagine to be in real space. The trading part is quite interesting but mining and building factories is just pure fun. "My facto... Read Full Review
