Game Misconduct: No Man's Sky review

"No Man’s Sky has been compared to Minecraft, but as it sits that’s not a very apt comparison. The game is, as a friend called it, a mile wide and an inch deep. It's a sandbox without the bucket and shovel. They have big plans for future updates, so perhaps it’ll be a game to check out at that point." ~ Rod Oracheski, Star News

Ridiculous... I've put in over 30 hours and haven't even scratched the surface yet. To say it's a mile wide and an inch deep is rather disingenuous.

I haven't played the game yet, just waiting to see if the PC port is good but since it's procedural generation it's definitely possible he got the short end of the stick in the area he started out in.

Mixed reviews man. Only 71 on metacritic now. Still good.

Another one of your alternate sad.

I don't think most people will get far enough into the game to even warrant a review. Rushing through a game this size can't possibly be fun since you would miss out on lots of fun things and experiences.

I'm curious, I mean what else is there to really do after the initial steps taken? I mean you explore planets, which are basically in a sense the same in terms of what you can do, so it's just cosmetic changes. If you follow atlas it's just rinse and repeat till the end.

I've put a ton of hours already into this, play daily and usually till 1 to 2 am. I've seen all kinds of planets, but at the end of the day they are the same in terms of what kind of objectives you can do (which are, reach save points, collect reaources, name animals, occasional distress calls) You'll never r3ally see unique ones.

I'm enjoying the game a lot, but I won't deny that after the first 5 to 10 hours, it's the same thing over and over. (I have way many more hours than that, I'm not the reviewer or associated with said site, but I got a review copy on monday).

You don't need a huge amount of hours to be able to review this. After the first ten and warping through a few times, a player can already get the feel how the rest of the game. Regardless of the size of it, that doesn't change i

Patches will def add more to this game though, which is why I'm holding off on my review. Any game I review I always give it a month, I've yet to even publish my Uncharted 4 multiplayer review because the latest patch change so much about it.

My goal is to have fun and I reach that goal every time I play. I agree with patches though. I really want to build stuff.

Even though I see what you're saying about the actual objectives, every system is still like a brand new thing to me. Exploration and how much a player enjoys it are a huge in this game. If you explore and think "but what am I getting out of this?" then the game probably isn't for you. I get something out of it just wandering around and taking in the sights. The game is simply fascinating to me and I don't see any indication of that fascination fading. I have to go see family for a few days next week and I'm very bummed out to not be able to play. It's not often that I sit down at 8pm, plan to play until 10pm or so, and next thing I know it's 3am.
