The biggest problem with the game I have seen is the manual/documentation, or lack there of. Maybe there is some doc I haven't found yet that will explain the nuances, if so point me too it PLEASE. It lead to a few wasted purchases before I figured out all the requirements for items.

Graphically - this game is a beautifully done, if not a little monotonous. I probably haven't been playing long enough yet to fully qualify that statement.

Interface - I'm figuring out what everything means, a good manual would have been a benefit.

Ships - Showing a newbie how to outfit a ship would be nice, still havent't found anything that will fit in the (-) slot on my particular ship.

Brokers - Haven't found one, don't know what good they are.

Repackaging - Found the explaination for this right before posting this. Now I can get rid of some of those things I bought not knowing I couldn't use them.

Corps - Haven't formed or joined one. Thinking of just forming one with my 3 Charactors to share the wealth. I assume a lot of people may do this. Is there any other advantage in this or is it just a waste of time?

My little review turned into more of a mini rant/Q&A, sorry about that. I'm giving this the 30 day free period to decide if it is worth the monthly fee. Right now I am leaning towards continuing, but I haven't really interacted with others yet. I will probably wait to see what kind on in game community there is. I tend to judge online games by the people who play as much as by the games themselves. (a longtime subspace player, for those who know the game)

Well, I'm leaning in the opposite direction. Maybe working for 5 years as a software tester is why...this game is in a shambles. It is not fit for release. As far as i'm concerned it isnt even fit to be called a Beta.

Starting off, The first time i get the game it has no code, ok this probably the shops fault, so i take it back get it replaced, i install the game, and find it take 50mins to download a 20 meg patch. The patch fails. I download the manual patch in about 9 minutes, it fails. I rince and repeat it continues to fail. I try to download the 450 1077 full version. Link is broken..

12 hours after buying the game, link to full download is fixed. It takes 4 hours to download.

It is now the next morning. I install, login and within 2-3 minutes of playing through tutorial the game crashes to desktop. Now i'm here..replying..

I see from other posts and ingame News that this crashing is a known problem. All the games companies i have worked for do not allow a game to go to beta if it has 1 fatal bug.

Personally, i not only want my money back, but at the very least my 30 free days extended to when this crash to desktop bug is resolved.

My opinion of the game.. i dont have one. Looks, Sounds and Gameplay meams nothing if i can expect to crash without warning or error message every 3 mins. Anyone played AO? EVE remind me of it...same *********! Q/A.

It should be a crminal act to release a game to market as messed up as this.
