I've been missing the space genre quite a bit, it's a good it's coming back again. The X games are ok if you like the trading aspect. Combat is ok but it feels too small being set in kilometre-sized sectors with planets and moons you can't land on, explore or make use of. They get better but I like a full-size realistic galaxy that you can explore every object within. I'm sure Frontier can find a number of ways to make all the extra space more useful - like long quests to far off systems to find special artefacts and derelict systems. Rescue operations etc.
