I have now, at least for now, finished with the first planet (Goldin), recieved my fathers spaceship and left for new frontiers.
There´s a lot of side-quests although most are of the variety drive to the other end of the desert and kill/fetch/find something. Some are also at least for me quite morally dubious ex. a very misogynic quest to kill an adulterous wife and her lover that had no other out and was required to finish a longer quest-line and also upon completion raised your standing with the civilian faction.
A lot of this ambiguity might be blamed on the translation which as said is very rudimentary but not all I doubt very much that I misunderstood the one above.
Anyway there are a lot of the side-quests and many of deal with adult matters like sex and drugs.
There are a lot of npc:s and most will talk with you unless you´re an enemy of their faction. The dialog are like a tree (can´t remember the correct term please help) and quite limited in all the cases I´ve seen so far although every npc seem to have some unique line even if it´s just a few cursewords.
The first world is big (perhaps San Fierro with badlans big from GTA San Andreas) and it has a lot of strange sites to explore a lot of which expect I won´t be able to unravel until much later in the game.
I will return to the space part later since I´ve just started on it but some initial impressions.
The Galactic map holds as of now about ten other star systems I can travel too. Each system holds a lot of spacestations, planets and moons that can be visited (Ar-Ferra where I´m now 3 planets, 7 moons, and 4 spacestations so far I´ve visited planet Goldin and station Nerra).
Judging from some clues it also seems that I will unlock a lot of more systems.
So even if the first planet is the one that got the most attention and most content it would seem like there´s a lot to discover as the game unfolds.
Some other things:
At it´s heart it´s a fps game which I suck at but since I lowered the setting to easy I´m able to muddle through
I wished you could zoom the map It would really have helped sometimes
Also I would have liked to be able to set different controls for different vehicles meaning fps/car/"thopter"/spaceship
I´m not used to writing this kind of texts but I hope you´re able to glean something from it.
And also it would be easier if you gave some questions so I know what you want to know
