So I bought the demo of Earth and Beyond
for 1 cent at Electronics Boutique.
Would I say it's better than EQ? Eh, 2 very different genres, 2 very different interfaces. However, at level 10, I have been to 4 different star systems, when in EQ, I had hit 2 zones at the most by that level. The graphics are breathtaking. I flew an orbit around Saturn just because it was so pretty. My new goal is to find Neptune. The control is a bit weird to get used to, but what isn't?
All in all, Something new to distract myself with when EQ gets dull.
