As far as I've read it's just a game of flying around with not much to do currently. Better to wait a while, the game isn't finished. I think in 1-2 years with Oculus out these sorts of games will be fantastic though.

I bought it but I need to really start playing.

I've had it for three months now and have played 10 minutes tops, I'll get around to it.... some time.

Guys, wait for Infinity: Battlescape. This game will blow Elite out of the water.

I had purchased it since Premium Beta (aka closed beta) and been playing since. It's a really good game atm. Can't wait for future patches of it. I'm mostly a combat person in it.

I might get this game to tide me over until Star Citizen releases

I was a tad bit agitated when this probe wasn't nudged to change its trajectory...

I played this today at work. The sheer scale of everything in this game is a mind-blowing experience, but other than that there isn't much to do but fly around and visit stars. I look forward to seeing this more fleshed out!

It's great, but I'm finding it very difficult. The controls are hard to master for combat/dog fights. I'm still playing the tutorial and haven't even started the full game yet. However, I absolutely love the game environment, storyline etc. and was a huge fan of the original game from '84, so I'm determined to make progress on it.

I tried landing at a space dock with flight assist off, boy is that impossible... :p

 

I got the premium beta with along with my brother while I was out of the country with work but work started to impede my progress so I didn't get a lot out of it. I will be getting the full game when I have time as I did enjoy the trade journeys amassing credits to buy better ships (and of course the times when I became overconfident then accidentally boosted inside the space dock...) 

 

I think the game is free to anyone who bought the premium beta also? Not sure, if it is then there's no reason not to get the full game I guess :D

The game features an explorable, realistic 3D map of the galaxy.

 

This is simply mind-blowing. You can't imagine the vastness.

This is the hardest thing to learn about space games. I am getting the same issue with Star Citizen & Starpoint Gemini 2. I think these games are potentially better with gamepads or a stick to be honest, it just feels weird with a mouse. It's much harder than flying a plane as well - when you're flying above something you have reference points, whereas in space it's difficult to see your orientation etc. Of course in a weightless environment orientation doesn't matter, up is down, down is up etc, but it does feel disorientating.
