I was about to buy X2/X3 pack but wondering if instead I should just get X3 Terran Conflict over the two.

What do you guys think?

From what I know, no point in playing the earlier parts unless you want to experience the storyline which sucks and does not really matter.

Alright and one last question I've been reading that all the games have DRM but it's not listed on Steam just want to confirm that the Steam version does not have that crap.

*edit* reading old post on here saying it uses TAGES but was it removed or something.

Wondered about this one as well. So if I get X3:TC I'd have the best X series offer without losing anything of substance?

Ok, to clarify, I haven't played X3. I just played X1 and X2.

But I did ask the same question in various places and the answer was that X3:TC is roughly equal to the original X3:Reunion + community patch. So all you really lose if you play X3:TC is the storyline which was never important in the series. And I read that the story and voice acting in X3:Reunion are especially bad.

There is another version coming out soon, it's Terran Conflict + Community Mods in an official release.

The story is indeed awful, the voice acting is very bad. The game features a story free mode, this is the best way to play. In this mode you choose from a list of characters each with different starting advantages.
