  • Such an amazing game, well worth the money.
  • I've got too much on my playlist (pile of shame) already... I'll pick it up in the next Steam sales though! 
  • Using it in beta on Xbox one for a while. Its awesome! The guys who still remeber it from C64. It resambles so much from the original but with state of the art gfx and sound. A MUST BUY.
  • i remember it from the ORIGINAL BBC Micro version.
  • Yes me too! BBC was so amazing.
  • Yep, I had the BBC version. Getting to the rank of Elite was a highlight of my teen years :)
  • Yep. I was one of those who played the original - utterly fantastic for its time.  Also got this version many months ago (first release) ..... Hmmmmm.  Far too complex and difficult IMHO. Haven't played it in ages and doubt I ever will again.
  • Looks good
  • It's such a great game and they keep adding cool features! Definitely worth it if you enjoy space sims.
  • Waiting for sub $20
  • It's an amazing value under $30. Just wait in the parking lot and rob the developers as they walk out if you want it under $20. :)
  • Yeah, that's a good idea... or you could just wait for the Steam sales and pick it up for $10 ;)
  • The image reminds me about Transformer 3, when Ark Ship tried to escape from Cybertron :v
  • Waiting for the xb1 version, can't wait to play it, looks amazing.
  • As soon as I read this I rushed to Steam and bought the game - in this price, it's a d*mn steal. Also with it, I bought the Might and Magic Franchise Pack (2015) for 24.99$ - what a great day for me, and a bad one for my bank account :D
  • Playing the preview version on XB1, really digging it just patiently waiting for the 6th.
