This edition takes an already good game, and added polish and smoothened the rough edges to make it a GREAT game.
If you have 2nd Edition, this is still a great edition to get as the additions and editing make it a wrothwhile buy. As an indication of how smoothly Modiphius and NWG managed the updating, I was able to transition my on-going 2nd Edition campign into the 3rd Edition without any difficulty.
If solo, RPG-lite sci0fi tabletop wargaming is your thing, you can't go wrong with this!
(Rating would be 4.5 as the game play aids provided are actually not as good as the fan-made ones done for 2nd Ed.)
[5 of 5 Stars!]
