    "If you are looking for a flight simulator game for windows, look no further than Elite Dangerous. Elite Dangerous is an awesome game available on steam that allows you to fly spaceships. I have been playing the game for a couple months now and it does not disappoint. I really love the graphics and the ability to upgrade my ship. I also love being able to connect with people from all over the world while playing this game. "

    "I love Simulation games. When I got my hands on Elite Dangerous I knew I would have a blast. The game is full of action, its probably the best space adventure game I've ever played. Flying around is so fun, missions, and exploring around the galaxy."

    "Elite: Dangerous gave me the opportunity to take control of my own ship and make my way through space. It was exhilarating to head off away from Earth and take control of my own ship through the awesomely graphic Milky Way!"

    "I enjoyed being able to play this game and feel as though I was actually in the game flying around. I liked the premise of the game and the settings as well. "

    "Elite Dangerous has terrible controls. We are in the year and yet the graphics look absolutely terrible. Absolutely do not play this awful excuse for a game."

    "A true Space Sandbox game. Do anything you want. Talk to anything you want. Blow up anyone you want, if you've got the superior firepower, of course. Be prepared to be blown up yourself, if not. A good alternative to EvE: Online if you don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars a year in monthly fees and ship upgrades. I know I got sick of that."

    "I like the unpredictability of Elite's gameplay. I'm a fan of space exploration games. I've played this for about 50 hours yet I couldn't completely master the game. There are plenty of surprises in the game which keep me on playing this game."

    "The actual game play is outstanding and the visuals unlike anything else. It can be a very immersive game with the detail in the sounds and environment. Definitely, one of a king at this point."

    "IMHO Elite Dangerous is the best space MMORPG! Yeah it has been around for a while already but i never get tired of playing this game. BUt i would gladly like it more if this has the same music with Guardians of Galaxy. That would be effin amazing. "

    "Indeed Elite Dangerous is still my primary game almost a year after it was launched...i never get tired of it because i can basically play the game how i want to and w/o the constraints of being forced down the tunnels...Definitely an immersive game although i admit there is a steep learning curve to get used to the game.

    "hat has compelled you to come down to the reviews anyway. Maybe it's morbid curiosity, or maybe the game still intrigues you in some way. Hopefully you're not the type to take a single score as the entire basis for a decision. Either way you're expecting the reviews to clear things up a little. Not really happening, is it? There's a lot of vitriol spewed over this game. A lot of it is entirely valid opinion highlighting genuine flaws. A large amount though is vicious, disproportionate, entitled whining, much of which comes from players with many hundreds of hours in the game. The retort there is they love the game so much and would hate to see it die. The reality is the continuous negativity is damaging Elite more than any perceived missteps by the developers. Let's state the obvious: Elite:Dangerous is not for everyone. It is slow paced, it features repetetive game loops and it can be inaccessible without relying on third-party tools. All that's true. It's also true the game is hugely immersive, massive in scale and at times jaw-droppingly beautiful. The flight mechanics are also some of the best I've ever experienced in any comparable game. Elite is not a game where you are meant to cram in the hours to reach an end goal. There is no end goal, and if you try to do anything intensively you'll get burned out real quick. The game can get grindy, yes, but it is almost always a self-imposed grind, when it's also fine to take things slowly. I've been playing this game for a good couple of years now and I still haven't reached the 'top' of any metric - no Elite ranks, no maxed military ranks, no big ships (lots of smaller ones though) and barely a couple-hundred-million in the bank. I'm totally fine with that. Many others wouldn't be. The game will be appreciated most by those who are happy to set their own goals and take it at their own pace. It's the kind of game you can just get lost in. REA"

    "I think Elite: Dangerous is a very cool game. I've played it and it has a very wide open feel, with the ability to explore many different star systems. I'm not sure if it's the best space opera out there. Mass Effect seems a little better on the story side."

    "This game let's you pilot a space-ship across the galaxy. You can choose your allies and fight enemies. "Supports Oculus Rift", which, I assume, means it doesn't support Vive."

    "Games about spaceship has never been this fun and realistic through virtual reality. This is a mmo but you can also play singleplayer if you desire to. It supports vr esp during the oculus devkit days. Controls are pretty tricky tho bec there are a lot of them. "

    "For my money, Elite Dangerous is the best VR game on Steam. I don't care to use VR for things I can see in everyday life or to receate the same situations over and over again. Space, spaceships, and even more space does it for me."

    "This website was immediately engaging. The combination of the colors, the video and the range of information was great. There combination of videos/software/hardware and games all in one site was compelling. There really is nothing I can complain about this site. It truly was well thought out and executed to meet the all the needs of the gamer and, specifically, for Elite Dangerous."

    "A good game for those who like space / starships / galaxy games and themes. I like that there are up to 8 people and you can play individually, building up your own places, and skills. Easy to get creative. "

    "While there's not an amazing narrative to follow or set goals that offer much satisfaction, I'm someone that just likes exploring space and traversing across planets. It's a great sandbox game and I went in with the knowledge that this game was that, so I was perfectly fine with much of the game being about landing on planet after planet and just exploring them with my own goals."

    "This is not good. I love space adventures. Trust me, I've played them all. From galaga to space invaders, but this is just cheap, mass=produced junk that maybe could sustain the attention of a toddler. But I doubt it. Everything about this is just bad. No. I don't recommend. "

    "This is an immersive gaming experience. It is an immersive space flying experience. I spent hours and hours in this game. It's a lot of grinding, but that also adds to the realism of this game. I like it, I think you might too."

    "I needed the best games to play with a steam controller and I found Elite: Dangerous. I really think this is the kind of game that has the advantage of being played with a controller since it requires a lot of accuracy. With a little bit of configuration, I was powering through ED like nothing with the steam controller."
