Has the Mixed Reception Worked in No Man's Sky's Favor?

No Man's Sky is an experience, and as all experiences are subjective, it should come as no surprise that the game has received wildly different receptions from different reviewers and even just other players. But, perhaps all of this controversy can work to the benefit of Hello Games and their recently released title.

Mixed? It's getting destroying on Steam right now.

I know more people that love it than people who don' mixed it is.

ALowlyRock1220d ago

Indeed. The game itself is completely broken on PC :/

kraenk121220d ago

The fact that it is broken doesn't make it a bad game though. Still sad this just happen...PC players don't deserve this.

I see people playing on twitch just fine.

kevnb1220d ago

I wouldn't worry about early steam reviews from guys that have played 2 minutes. There are 200 000 people in game right now on steam playing the game.

Mostly because of the issues that are plaguing it on pc

Crap game confirmed. Out of over 3000 reviews, only 30% are positive on Steam. People are experiencing 110 fps to 20 fps frame drops, those who are not complaining about technical issues have gripes about the lack of features that are typically found in the X-Universe games.

kraenk121220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

The bad reviews are only because of the fact it seems to have technical problems on PC! People complaining about differences to other broken games (X series) can't be taken serious, sorry.

I noticed that there was a patch that seemed to improve performance already.

assdan1220d ago

I'll probably be getting it after they fix the performance issue on PC.

it's no longer getting destroyed on steam as the mods have begun silencing negative threads and post :)

they claim they are only closing threads with trolling or personal attacks yet a thread with 200+ post titled "all you guys saying negative things about this game are idiots" apparently is okay :\

also coupled with the odd case of a surge of positive reviews(this could be due to users who've been playing now stopping and giving reviews) while the negative reviews vanish(some due to refunds)
