I own the game and it is fun. It has unlimited freedom. It actually does have good FPS if you have a powerful system. Recent patches has made the game alot more smoother!
The plot is just an afterthought. The economy and doing what you want is what counts. Some players make cash by capturing ships, some mine for minerals, while others build factories and trade.
It's not exactly microsoft simulator realism, it just has the step learning curve, I still recommend to give it a shot.

I have this "dream" of having incredibly big army (fleet) and than going after the enemy Any other games I could do the same? (not mission based like RTS but persistent world stuff)

I am just starting it and the tutorial alone is very complicated. Very steep learing curve. Also the tutorial had problems not recognizing my actions until I updated to version 1.4
I think I will skip the manufacturing and go with pirating. Too much to learn. Supposedly its a really big Universe and I can just tell it will be pretty cool game.
Play's fine on my mid level vid card at about 35fps with A/A enabled. Puts a fairly big hit on your system while running.CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 925
