X-Rebirth for $7.50. Or Complete for $12.50. Is either a no brainer?

Well, complete over just the straight up game for sure.

I'm not sure what all has changed in the past three years but I did enjoy the game when I played it. Mostly. The conversation mechanic could have been fun but there were *far* too few possible conversations. Exploring stations got old fast, too. The overall game was fun, though. I liked the new trading system quite a bit.

Reading up - it sounds like Home of Light made quite a few changes so my 3 year old view may not be very valid now.

The reviews on Steam are pretty negative. Did you have any game stopping bugs?

When the game came out, it was HORRIFIC - even by Egosoft standards. Much of it flat out didn't work. It was shameful. That's when the majority of reviews get put up. Egosoft has been working on it for years now, though, and they've gotten the game working pretty well. I'm sure there's still stuff that couldn't be fixed because it's too embedded in the gameplay but the days when trading just resulted in ships sitting around are long dead.

Then there's the X thing. I just checked the reviews and still people are buying this game expecting it to be X4. "OMG, you can only ever fly one ship! 0/10!" It is *NOT* X4.

But, to your question, definitely no game stopping bugs. Heck, I played the thing for 180 hours! Some unfortunate design decisions but those just led to having to go through the same fool conversation dozens of times and crawling through the exact same corridors early in the game.

Now I've just about talked myself into playing that Home of Light thing and updating my old guide.

Alright, thanks for your thoughts. Even recent reviews have said the game crashed and stopped them from moving forwards. I am assuming those are the few unlucky cases then.

Ya, I watched the X4 debacle back when it came out. It's supposed to be quite a bit better now days but as you've read it isn't the same game mechanics wise as the earlier X titles. I got X3 to try and fill the void when I went cold turkey from EVE Online but it never hooked me nearly as badly as EVE did. I've considered trying X4 now that it's inexpensive but never being that much of an X3 player I'm unsure it's worth my time.

I loved Terran Conflict, so I am willing to give this a chance.
