Threat Assessment: X2 Examined
7:40 AM | Cord Kruse | 10 comments
Applelinks recently posted a review of Enlight Software's X²: The Threat. Brought to the Mac by Virtual Programming and distributed in the U.S. by Freeverse, X² is a complex spaceflight simulator with a dash of exploration and entrepreneurism thrown in. The game's open ended style wasn't enough to conquer more than a 2 out of 5 from Applelinks, however.
From the review:
Like, well, all sim games, how much fun you'll have playing X² is dependent on how much time you're willing to put into it. Until you work with the interface so much that it becomes intuitive, you're going to feel like you're fighting the game, rather than Xur and the Ko-dan Armada.For the full review follow the link below.

Applelinks: X²: The Threat Review
I never got to that point. I felt X² could be an intriguing game, but the command system was so Baroque that I didn't care. An example: in the training mission, I suffocated in my space suit while trying to find the command to enter a ship I'd captured.
