This is a great price, but it's worth noting that it may not be a wise investment to buy anything other than the complete edition.

Does this game use the hand controls or do you still need a controller? I bought EVE Valkiery not knowing it was headset only.

Edit: Read on the game webpage that it requires a controller or keyboard and mouse.

This is the base (bare bones) version of the game which is fine if you just want to try it out and see if this floats your (space) boat

It's a big space sandbox that is an incredibly accurate model of our galaxy
Beautiful graphics and production value in this game

The aliens have arrived and started causing some havoc, but it'll take you a while to see any of them in person if you are just getting started

It ultimately boils down to being "Space Trucker Simulator" as you pick up missions to move cargo or passengers around different star systems...which can be fun and quite relaxing depending on what you're up for.

This game is NOT X-wing or Freespace...there is no campaign or through story.
There is an ongoing fiction to the galaxy that you can read about and kind of participate in as you rank up for different factions but it's on you to make your own story

You can dive into combat with Piracy or BountyHunting as well but you will need to invest a lot of time to grind missions in order to afford the good ships and equipment (it's all in game currency)

There are microtransactions for fun cosmetic things like paint jobs, in cockpit decorations and flight suits

If you have a Vive or Rift VR setup, this is kind of a must as a showpiece

The Horizons expansion opens the game up more with newer places to visit, you can land on planets (although there isn't a ton to do on them yet) and do special quests for the mysterious "Engineers" who will help you outfit your ships with improved tech

I'm a casual player of this game and I routinely come back to fly around, run some missions and see what's new and then I shelve it for a while
