Fantastic for Elite Fans

Would you consider the audio edition of Elite: Reclamation to be better than the print version?

I have read this in print and it was fantastic. The audio book a radio style dramatization so there is music and sound effect much like the old time radio show before the modern TV. Kind of enjoyed that as I played the game.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Elite: Reclamation?

I enjoyed some of the spaced battles and the details quite nicely and the details to the ships and planet descriptions, I would go in to more detail but I feel it would give away a lot of the plot and story since these tend to be at key parts of the story.

What about Toby Longworth’s performance did you like?

His male voices where spot on, hard for deeper tone voice to actually do a woman's voice but once your sense disbelief kicks in and your immersed in the story you don't notice as much

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I would, However I did in three long jaunts because of time constraints

Any additional comments?

It amused that you already know a good deal of the Elite lore so a lot of back story maybe lost for those who have never played any of the Elite games or read the original novelas. With out that back details it would be hard to grow attachments or understand how ruthless the Elite universe can get. However Wagner's details of the games beloved ships is spot on. The effects of this story did effect the in game story, and the game also effect the hero story enough that a second book is getting written. This is a must have for any hard core Elite fan to have playing as you are doing those long Solthis trade runs or exploring

Some royals problems I can't relate to

The story is really dissatisfying: Some wild hunt for a unbearable princess in the stars, complete with a Han Solo stand-in. Kind of Hidden Fortress in space. This could have been entertaining, but right to the postscript there is no relatable character out here, except the Han Solo stand-in. Maybe that's the E:D theme ("cut-throat galaxy"), but it really annoyed me. Worse, nobody ever challenged the hideous moral decisions taken by the protagonists. Except the Han Solo stand-in, but just briefly and in a superficial way.

The reading is actually ok. Unfortunately it was decided to jam in lots of (original game) sound effects and tons of background music. The first was really distracting, and made it hard to follow (I really would have preferred the reader to deliver the lines over distorted com-lines in his clear voice), and the latter makes me feel manipulated, which throws me out of the mood immediately.

So if you want some E:D stories and can bear the para-dramatization, all you need to endure is a story about some people without morals trying to become the rightful masters over the slaves of a mining colony, and you can listen to this. (Actually this sounded less terrible before I wrote it, but that's basically the gist of it.)

Love that old trader guy, though.
