x3

Post by Nothingbetter2do » Thu May 18, 2006 4:43 pm

i have both x2 the threat & x3 the reunion and basically the game is very like the old dos game elite... but with better graphics... there is a story line to follow in both games.....x2 set sometime in the future earth has been cut off from the rest of the x2 universe following the destruction of the jump gate back to earth... you start off getting arrested for trying to steal a prototype miliary ship and are released due to your father's intervention (he owns a very powerful corparation) but he gets kidnapped and you have to find your father who has discovered the jump co-ordinates back to earth... you face up against an enemy called the kaaak... who as you discover later in the game have your father held captive. you have to rescue him but when you do your father is already in a deep coma... in order to do the main game role you need to buy better ships & weapons as you progress.... to get the money you must trade wares, and build factories that produce these wares... you can also hunt down pirates to earn money or shoot enemies of the empire whose space your currently in... you can even be a pirate if you want to...
x3 is just a continuation of the story really just better graphics and harder enemies... also you need to have your skill go up a good bit in order to buy capital ships.... they both are good games but i prefered x2 as it was easy to buy the capital ship cos all you needed was money...x3 you need to have your skills high and trusted by race rating high along with the money before you can buy good ships and weapons. :D

also to add... both games are worth buying... but unfortuneatly there is no multiplayer mode on either version...a pity... also i recommend you buy a good joystick... i broke mine playing x2 and x3 is impossible to play without one :(

it is modable but only in the form of scripts as far as i know... the scripts can either be used to cheat or enhance the games trading system or even enhance the ships ai, weapons or shields.

there are 8 races in the X2 universe & 9 in the x3 universe. 1. Argon (decendents of earth that got cut off from earth after the gate was destroyed. 2. Boron - a peaceful aquatic race 3. Split - War hungry reptilians 4. Parinid - Paranoid reptilian race 5. Teladi - X universe's answer to the ferengi 6. - Xenon - Artificial Intelligence created by the Terrans but turned on em (like the cylons from battlestar galactica) 7. Kaak - Little is known about them but they are nasty hairy animal like creatures 8. Terrans (X3 only) - The humans from earth 9. Goner - A group of peaceful monks. Each race has their ups and downs in terms of technology but the argon are sort of all rounders. Pirates are made up of all races but the Kaaak, Xenon, Terran, & Goner.

This is removed when u install the patches... due to starforce being responsible destroying many a dvd drive
