X misses the spot. The occasional bit of spectacle can't save this boring, broken and charmless space simulation.

4.3 / 10.0

X Rebirth may be a space sim beyond saving, even after patches address stability and performance issues.

X Rebirth's endless deficiencies make it an inferior husk of the X games that came before it.

X Rebirth might be worth grabbing in a Steam sale in a couple of years, after 100 patches and with a dozens of mods that create an entirely different game. That game could be fun if you are into modding. As it is right now at launch, X Rebirth is simply a broken, flawed, and almost unplayable mess. It's a shell that has potential, but it's not a working game on its own. Stay far away from it for now, and maybe in a few years it could be worth the time of dedicated fans.
