Hello Games' lush galactic odyssey is a unique work of engineering art - and an engrossing, if flawed, game.
Meh...still not enough for 60 bucks.
You get loads for 60. A lot more than most of the games released this generation.
Exactly. It isn't for everyone, but saying there isn't enough.....lol. Whatever. Why am I spending so much time in this game then?
That's like saying Borderlands is the best bang for buck because it has "87 bazillion guns". The main problem is that the game is very very shallow. There's a vast difference between depth and quantity, and No Man's Sky only has one of them.
I've easily gotten $60 of fun time out of it and look forward to a lot more. I can't get enough.
I'm thus far about 30 hours into the game and I've only traveled across 2 Star systems, I've yet to reach what my mind is an end game in regards to just randomly traveling, I'd say it's very much worth full price. Even if within the next ten hours or so I reach that end game there's still the updates that are adding new features and content that change how the game is played so if I end up getting 50 hours out of this game it Justified its price several times over, I've paid more money at launch for games that are way way shorter with less content and less new ideas. You don't know what you're missing and I find it funny that some people put a worth on an experience they've yet to have..smh
I've seen some play throughs. I know exactly what I'm missing. A bunch of empty procedurally generated sandboxes
Can't stop thinking about this game.
They liked it, and I don't really blame them :)
Hoffmann does not buy games at launch anymore. Be smart..be like Hoffmann.
Be a virgin?
..be married since almost 8 years. In other words, being a virgin would be nicer :(
"..be married since almost 8 years." So in other words your virginity has almost fully grown back :D You're right though, buying games at launch and preordering is dumb, I still do it myself sometimes but I'm not so smart, don't be like me guys, be like Hoffmann.
Well when you buy the game in 6 months or whatever enjoy spending time on all the planets people have already discovered everything on...
Engrossing, if flawed game. Yep. Sums it up. Enjoying it immensely. Worth every bit of the $60 I paid.
Now that I'm around 30 hours in I can see why it's taking a hit with a lot of reviews. It has some issues but I still can't stop playing it. Trying to scan a flying creature results in me just wanting to kill the motherf'er. Crash, crash, lock, crash, fall through the ground...still keep playing.
Lol I'm in the same situation. there's a lot that could still be fixed and updated but that could be said about lots of games considering the nature of software, I love what I'm playing thus far and can't wait till I explore the rest of the planets in my star system. I also can't wait for the future updates that add other elements into the game
This is the best and most accurate review I have read for this game.
Agreed...Eurogamer still has some of the most professional reviewers around.
I won't lie, the game is not as good as I expected, but I'm still having a blast with it, despite the awful optimization of the PC version.
I completely agree with this review but in my personal opinion the information that was given out to Consumers prior to its release should have already told them that this is what the game was going to be anyway , the creators of the game of never expressed that it's anything other than what we've actually played. I believe the game also needs a photo mode if not a mode you can alter the ui because I want to be able to get rid of the HUD or I want to be able to have other information openly listed like what planet am I staring at? When you're on a planet and you're looking at another planet or a moon I'd like to be able to know what I'm staring at in the night sky. I have lots of small things but these seem to be things that will be updated in the future and if they're not they still don't really change that much of the game for me I enjoyed what I played.
I kinda like it but I understand the disses. Particularly on the performance. My game lags ridiculously at times.. Specifically dogfights. And it is infuriating trying to scan all the animals on a single planet.. Multiple plants do I have only 1 left to find and can't find it.. I do, however, wish there were more enemies (I did just hyerjump, though, so may be more..)
