Anyone who doesn't already have the X Superbox is an idiot (providing they don't reject Steam entirely, in which case it is forgiven). Not that I've actually "played" them, but that's a different problem:)
I regret buying X Superbox. I tried playing Beyond and Tension and after about 20 hours, i got really bored with the games. Little or no action at all, just alot of trading over large distances, not much fun for me, so i quit. I might try 2 and 3 in the future, not sure if they are any better.
It's quite fun, further games have a steep learning curve but it's quite fun once your well established. Of course, the combat is more poor and this is pretty much the definition of "Space Empire Simulator" - It's pretty much in a genre of it's own, You build you empire up from dirt (Ok, that was a bad analogy) and watch trade markets, conquer space systems and so on.

If anyone is unaware, this is a pretty large game, in this format. I'll leave it to you to decide if it's one you'd like actually playing, but yeah, pretty big.
Its a linear-open-linear game, And it works out quite brilliantly! I'd highly recommend it to any RPG Fan in general. An absolutely stunning and amazing game that is worth far more then $6. Also, Has a great story.
