One of the most awesome game in the early days where Elite. Full 3D rendering of space ships, featuring a galaxy full of star systems for trading, space pirates to kill you.
I must admit. I never understood this game. It was simply too hard for a 8 year old to grasp. It was fun to dock to space ports, and fly around in zero gravity, but as soon as it got to fighting, my ass was owned. I never got to master the controls.
I'm still a great fan of David Braben and keep a close watch on what he produces these days. Maybe, just maybe there will be another game in the Elite series.
