Review Clearly crafted by a design team on a mission and with a vision, X3: Terran Conflict is a pretty and impressively ambitious voyage into the heavens that should satiate the thirst of anyone who pines for life away from earthly confines. It isn't so lightweight that hardcore space jocks will write it off as a piece of fluff, nor is it as convoluted and complex as 3000AD's competing extraterrestrial sim Galactic Command. X3 is hard on the hardware unless you detune it a bit first and it isn't completely free of rough edges, but hey, German developer EgoSoft and publisher Deep Silver don't exactly have the pockets of Electronic Arts...What you'll first notice when you begin the game is a nifty little pre-launch utility that allows you to look for updates, set up your control device, and adjust the graphic detail. Our advice: Pay very careful attention to the latter. X3 demands a ton from your system and will either slow to an unplayable speed or crash to the desktop if you don't act accordingly. We were ultimately forced to reduce virtually every important parameter -- including antialiasing, texture filtering, texture quality, and shader quality -- just to reach a satisfactory frame rate. A shame really, because as good as the game looks even with diminished detail, it looks positively brilliant when cranked to the max...We, as gamers, generally want the same things from developers as professional sports teams want from athletes -- effort and desire. In X3: Terran Conflict, EgoSoft has clearly given us both. Lovingly concocted, generally well executed, and hampered only by a few niggles, this is a game that not only achieves its goal -- plunking us into another time and place to live the life of an entrepreneurial spaceman -- but shows us that some titles can truly take us places.
