I recently bought this, and its a lot of fun - a couple of gripes, though.

Looking at the directory, it seems like everything is hardcoded into DLL's. Why not transfer a lot of the data over to an interpreter like Lua to make it more mod-friendly? You're ON MODDB, for goodness's sake.

Maybe I'm just terrible at combat, but it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to me for some reason. Missiles seem to be super awesome one-hit kills and the AI use a *lot* of them, whilst my guns do next to nothing on the enemy.

DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME.

Sorry, folks, The game "looks" nice...from a distance and I certainly spent hours enjoying the never-before-experienced seemless planet decent. Other games like Freelancer force you to dock at a ring and then it loads the planet in more of a UI form, not actually allowing you to fly around.

However, EL stops dead after the first hour of playing because that's about how long it will take to dock at stations and planet cities, jump around the map a little, and mine some asteroids. It doesn't matter where you go in this "go anywhere, do...ahem, """anything"""" game, once you've seen it here or there, you've seen it everywhere.

I was so ****** even for the $24.95 I spent on this. I really wish I had looked for a crack or keygen or something. The graphics are about late 90s also at best and as I just said there's really only about an hour's worth of content.

Again, don't waste your money. Just trying to help.
