If you are not familiar with No Man’s Sky, it was one of the most anticipated games of the year. It isn’t every day where someone comes out with a game where the viewer can explore about 18 qunintillion worlds. Seriously, there is no way that you can do that in your own lifetime. Is it too good to be true? Apparently, it is.
As you can see from the Angry Joe review that I put here, the game has a powerful set-up, but is ultimately disappointing. The issue is that this game is too ambitious, and many things that were promised upon the game’s announcements were not given.
At first, the player can explore a world, see new lifeforms, and leave for other planets. However, gamers were promised that there would be large space barges and factions and the player would have to choose which faction to join, but this just isn’t happening. Also, the spaceships are not as diverse as it was thought.
Then there are issues with it crashing, like all the time. This is something that I predicted when the game was about to be released, before it was delayed. It appeared that the delays didn’t help this game.
Now it is possible that hello Games, publisher of No Man’s Sky, is working hard to fix these problems. With a little DLC updates, it could be pretty good. However, is it worth the full price for something not finished?
