    where are nowadays the space combat games??

    ages ago I liked very much wing commander prophecy, then I played with freelancer.

    Have you got games to suggest?

    I installed X3, felt bored after 2 hours, i want more action.


    Seem about combat flight simulators.
    I got apache air assault which is pretty nice and playable. But for planes is there something?
    I already know hawx...
    Years ago I played f15III, it was nice going on missions flying low to not get spotted and then put loads of bombs on the enemy...

    cheers

    Have you tried "Freespace 2" if not i suggest you do so. The game is old but they have some nice graphics mods for it.

    The genre is somehow dead at least for the moment. Most of the general public consider FPS to be the best for an action game.

    I don't know about X3, but X3TC has a hell of alot of combat once you know where to find it.

    When i want to blast something i reinstall Xwing Alliance. Only true space combat game if you ask me. Just be sure to update the models with those HQ ones.

    X3 - have tried it and there was an annoying graphical glitch. The planets would look distorted like an egg on the border of the screen, but only on 16:9 resolutions. So is there any fix yet?

    You might want to checkout Spacesim Central plenty of galleries with a complete list of all space games that exist.

    Haha, that isn't a bug. That happens with every single game. It's because engines project a 3d world onto a 2d plane (your screen), which in turn distorts the edges. The only fixes for it are to lower the FOV or get a wider and a curved screen ;)

    If you want something with planes, check out Wings of Prey. Great game!

    This distortion only happens in all games of the X-series though, because they never programmed some "picture correction" for users with 16:9 !
    Which is a shame, because just space-sims like these are pre-destinated to be played on a TV-screen.

    its the same in X3 reunion if not even better, i spend more time in Reunion than TC, but yea by the time x3TC got released i had enough of it, although TC has easier combat system :nerd:

    I have played a lot of X³ Reunion, now i am flat out in Terran Conflict and there is as said above, more opportunities of fighting. Meanwhile, i have to agree this isn't an easy game to handle, for sure but where other games have to face the critic of longevity, these X³ don't at all. So it is just a question of taste. I will prolly try some of the ones that are suggested in here!

    This a great topic since i am also fan of space games ;)

    Have fun
