Yo this is sort of an X3 review aswell, as I am a die-hard fan of both, but cant get access to writing a review for X3. X3/2 (lets just call them X) are 2 extremely interesting games. While X3 needs to be a bit more patched up, it will soon be better than X2. The manual, however, is confusing. While playing the game, you will constantly have your fingers on ALT+TAB, swapping back and forth between the game and its fan-based forums. This game should, for a fan of the series, leave you playing in excess of 300 Hours, which is quite an achievment.
