    If you like flight Sims you will like it. Get X3 Albion of you want a more fleshed out game. The only reason to play ED is for multiplayer, and only if you can deal with some asshat destroying your ship for shits and giggles. You will not affect local economies, it's static with artificial price limits. 

    The graphics are nice.

    I started playing this game when it was in alpha and just recently quit playing it for the second time. 

    I play pretty much all my games solo.  There are game modes for ED where you can play as the only real peep in a universe (rather galaxy) as the only non-NPC.  The space criminals, pirates, security, etc. are all AI.

    To me the game is beautiful and flying around in the ships is a lot of fun - doing missions and trading and mining for credits.  The mining mechanics are good and interesting.  However, I get hounded  very frequently by the AI controlled ships making it Elite-too-Dangerous for my liking.  While making say a 6 star hop I may get attacked maybe 1 or 2 or even 3 times and I cannot go anywhere and mine for any time without getting attacked sooner or later. Sometimes I even got attacked by pirates with an empty cargo hold. 

    Mining is not just push button and get stuff in this game.  It requires attention and getting attacked while mining is really frustrating.  In my second attempt at the game, I was never able to go anywhere and mine without getting attacked.   I don't mind some combat occasionally but it's way too frequent as I see it.

    So I quit the game again.  Gonna try maybe in  a few more months and see if they crank down the NPC AI then again the game is called Elite DANGEROUS.  Maybe I will not play again.  Maybe this game is not for me.

    I very rarely get attacked by NPCs. This is probably because I don't pirate other ships.

    Yes but then you will must wait for the expansions price to drop.
    I would suggest to wait for the at least 90% completition of the game because they are releasing payed update and if you want a complete game it's 50€ at every expansion so really don't worth the cost now.
    I have payed 50€ for an unfinished game and in order to get a chunk of update I should now pay other 50 € so it's really best to wait at least one other year.
