Critic Reviews for X4: Foundations

Foundations is more of the same niche-scratching space exploration from previous iterations with a more immersive feel and I can't wait to dive back into my personal galaxy. For those that have been watching the X series from the outside, Foundations is a great entry point, provided you meet the beefy system requirements.

X4 Foundations is a game where you choose your fate, and if you’re willing to self-motivate and put in the time, you’ll find an incredible experience waiting for you.

X4: Foundations is a far superior game to the last outing and is already on the right path to success, thanks to Egosofts diligent work in fixing issue s and enhancing the game. However, in its current state, it's still lacking core elements that help to make the game what it could be.

Fans of the X series will love the new X4 Foundations, but the new players will find it incredibly hard to get into.

An ambitious, complex sandbox space game that allows you to do almost anything from spacewalking to commanding a carrier with a fleet of ships onboard. A steep learning curve and an inconsistent interface mar an excellent return for Egosoft's flagship series.

A difficult game, slow and complex, but in which we can do practically everything to build our galactic empire. A must for veterans of the saga.
