Link: X2 - The Threat for Mac OS X

Sounds like a jumped-up Escape Velocity (Ambrosia Software)... Could be very interesting if handled correctly.
Whew! Don't scare me like that
From the headline, I thought X2 was some new, unheard-of OS that was expecting to challenge Mac OS X. It's not. It's just a game called "X2 - The Threat" written for Mac OS X. Maybe the headline should've read "X2 - The Threat, for Mac OS X"
as did I.
i'd like to try the demo, maybe it will be free with .mac, i hope so.
if it's as good as EV i will be ecstatic.
Reviews online indicate that it doesn't even come close... Very pretty, though.
This has been out of PC for years.
I played 'X' which was the first version - an Elite like game. Unfortunately it was flawed (unlike Elite), it took to much time to get in the game. Hopefully this one is better.
I'd buy more Freeverse games if Jen got naked ...iPuppet Strip, anyone? :-D
/needs to go back to FYAD
There was a PC game like this called Freelancer (i think) that had the exact mechanics of EV from Ambrosia. Every spaceport had a bar, a jobs board, a shipyard and a place to buy stuff. Oh, and you got to go on quests and meet people and the story would adapt. It was EV, except with immersive 3D.
Me too! but and to add to it I clicked the link then switched to mail, so that when I came back to Safari, I was like, what's this game doing here?
Hence the 'Games' tag
I'll be the first to plead guilty for not noticing that.
Noticed it after the fact...
Still, for a non-gamer, that's a very deceptive headline.
Scared me there for a second. Should've noticed the sub-heading.
Wow, when I submitted the link I didn't realize that it would get so many hits just from the fact that I didn't use a comma...
well yes , but i think people saw "OSX" and "threat" first and clicked in somewhat slight panic and alarm.
