No Man's Sky is a massive machine with broken and missing parts, but dig deep enough and you'll be moved in ways you never expected.
Looks like the meta score is going to average somewhere in the 60s, definitely didn't think it would be this low
Me neither. Maybe when the base building gets patched in it'll pad the content issue, one of the more common gripes among critics.
It's a massive game full of almost nothing interesting to do. A metacric in the 60 range is a blessing. It's not minecraft in space and it's not a terraria in space. It's not even a better version of starbound.
I just read the Eurogamer review and it seems spot on...review systems with numbers just don't work for games like this. That's why I usually respect Eurogamer's reviews more than other sites.
No, you are just defending this game as hard as possible.
@nathan and so what if he's defending it. ill defend the game as well and not give a rats ass what anyone else think. I like the game whtchu gonna tell me i cant like the game cause critics?
"I just read the Eurogamer review and it seems spot on...review systems with numbers just don't work for games like this." Do you not see it? Go over this a couple more times until you do.
The writing was on the wall with NMS though. I knew the ratings would be low
It very well could end in the 70's. There are still a lot of good scores coming in for it. Also YinYang why do you feel the need to bring your downer attitude to everything regarding this game.
Just as I bring my 'downer attitude' as you put it, I see you and some others bring your defensive attitude trying to shut down anyone that doesn't have the same opinion as you on this game, doesn't mean either one of us has any less right to be here commenting about the game
I'm surprised it's not lower. It's a game about shooting rocks. There is a lot of fancy window dressing on top of it, but at its core, it's a game about shooting rocks. I don't get it.
6 is optimistic and generous for a glorified tech demo. its the sort of thing that should be a freebie with each ps4. maybe in the future they will actually build a game using the technology they used to create this... generator. until then, only a fool would throw $$$ down the drain on what is essentially an experiment.
The game is not for every one
7 is a pretty good score considering Gamespot always rate games tougher than other sites. They gave Quantum Break a 6 and that game is like a consent 7 from everyone. A 7 is more like an 8 from everywhere else. IGN already gave it a 9 and these are the two few sites that matter when it comes to review.
Technically correct ign italy gave it a 9 while ign the main site is currently still reviewing but left a statement saying at that point they'd give it a 6
I found what you are speaking about. From the IGN reviewer 2 hours ago- "I still haven't quite reached the center of the galaxy, but if I had to score No Man's Sky today, I'd give it a 6.0, for Okay." Oh man, don't do this to me IGN :(
@DrakeFan1 Who respects IGN (US) these days?!
Eurogamer gave it a recommended which happens seldomly enough...it's all I need to know.
Euro gamer gives out recommended all day. Do you really need a site to tell you to play a game or not
I rather listen to ACG and Worthabuy... So far ACG said rent ore buy on a sale. I know worthabuy is going to tear this game apart.
Look no beating around the bush; it's got a very mixed reception. But if you're enjoying it as much as you claim you are then don't worry about reviewers and just enjoy it mate.
ehhhhh no biggie I enjoyed suicide squad and it's being tore apart I don't agree with any of the critics and will purchase the dvd when it releases. what's that term for things you secretly love even when it's not popular, well you get my point it's best to just enjoy it and say screw everyone who doesn't get it.
Almost every person I know, including me, LOVED Suicide Squad. The user reviews are much higher.
no reviews matter they all come down to who bribes the most sites
I think its a tough game to score, its a little rough but its also unique.
Read the Eurogamer review. It's spot on.
So does that mean that all other reviews aren't spot on in their opinion and why should Eurogamer's opinion be the only one that counts when other sites are entitled to give their opinion also unless its because you don't like what they have to say so you want to hide all other reviews because they talk about the faults etc in the game
why are you spaming Eurogamer [email protected]? we get it already.
Compared to all the other exploration/Procedurally generated games?
One game where the reviews won't tell the full story. I love the game so far in about 15 hours, but if you are looking for an ending or a set goal you are looking at the wrong game.
Almost everyone knows it doesn't have a real ending.
I get a very Destiny vibe from this.... First the hype meant it couldn't live up. Secondly the fact that there is a lot with the game that you'll technically get your money worth in terms of hours spent. More than the typical 8h. However, just like with Destiny...when the honeymoon wears off and you really start digging in, it seems hollow. So idk, it seems like a good game, just lacking that makes some regret $60. (I haven't played it yet, but I just get a destiny vibe about it. Idk, guess I'll have to wait a little longer for the dust to settle as so many things got burned this gen...watchdogs, destiny, division.)
I don't know... I couldn't get back about 10 hours of Destiny before quitting it all together whereas NMS I'm 30 hours in and can't wait for the next 30.
We all seen this coming. I didn't understand why people were excited for nms at any point
Seriously a 7 to you is this bad? NMS will I,prove overtime with patches and free dlc
It's getting alot of 5 and 6 scores and I don't know but to me, that's really bad
Oh come on Castillo, give it up.
So you'll also ignore all the 8's and 9's? It has no negative reviews on MC at the moment. Just positive or mixed. So you saw it coming that the game would be average and one of those games which would score rather wildly, but generally around the 7 mark? People were excited for it because it's something different. If you can't understand that, then I can only assume you don't like games which are different.
Bingo...something different. Also true at the same time some people don't prefer the gameplay. But I do like games to try something different.
i think its a great game only problem i have is the places like abandoned buildings, outposts, ruins,etc look the same in every world to the point where i know what to expect from the places when i explore them as thy are always the same...still great game but i give it a 7 at the most
NMS has a lot of potential hopefully with gamer feedback now the developers will update the game to make it a better experience
If they add base building and let you play with friends this game will literally add 50+ hours of gameplay.
Reviews and ratings are dumb.
Why is it that everytime that I click on a NMS article the same xbox fanboys are all over it.
theyre waiting for the holidays
They are waiting for the holidays as usual so the starving dogs can finally have something to eat.
Holidays is too far away
7/10 I figure the game would be average. Should of never been $60 to begin with...
Why do you guys look at reviews if you already made up your mind about it? What do you gain out of telling people which reviews to listen to if your just gonna point them to the one that gives it a favorable and biased score?
Well, I picked up No Mans Sky today. Already have six hours in and still am having fun. Its all about discovery and unfolding the mystery of what is going on. The game is beautiful and very cryptic. Im really enjoying it!
Sony chose the wrong game to hype up.
Sony did not hype it.
It's not even sonys game. LoL.
I would have rated it at least an 8, maybe 8.5 and if they solve the few bugs and add some more stuff for free it could turn into a 9 for me.
A vast universe with nothing to do. "But it has mining!" So does Eve online, and that game is as fun as watching water boil. This is a game that should have had co op. Mine Craft had co op for bleeding sake. It would have added it's longevity. But next game that comes out, NMS is forgotten.
So for $60 you get a game that was overhyped, has big issues that are f***ing basic aka inventory flaws, with mislead info about multiplayer, the menus look like something from Destiny, mining like a mother*** I felt like I was playing Minecraft except you can build sh*t with all the stuff you get, no home base except a spaceship, and it gets.......wait for it, the same score as Elite: Dangerous. And please don't quote the 9/10's from IGN Spain, Italy, or Zimbabwe lol, if it's not from the main site then it doesn't count these are same type of reviewers that put Just Cause 3 at the level of GTA 5 give me a f****ing break. This game shouldn't never been $60 to begin with maybe just maybe $39.99, I got this crap from gamefly put about 21hrs and is on his way on Monday. I'm not saying the game is horrible but there's enough broken things to complain about, and misleading quotes from Sean Murray in several interviews with the media that gave hope to players and followers that it would include some sort multiplayer interactivity element, of course a lie. Two people in the same planet but they can't see each other. F-U drop the price Sony and Hello Games.
Apparently some people have been trolling xbone on nms. Naming systems and planets stuff like 'notonxbone-lol', 'saltyxbfans' and xb115trash. Probably a lot worse too. Lol.
Surely us ps owners can live without playing trash like fighter within. So I'm sure xbox owners can live without playing this game. Actually with ark and we happy few, they have the better survival games.
That's gonna be funny when NMS comes to Xbox. Fanboys too blind to know this is not sonys game, nor is it exclusive to Sony, Just because it's on PS4 at the moment.
The problem with these average scores is that they are just upset the game doesn't hold their hand where in reality there is so much more to see and do than any open world game I've ever played. Gamespot/Jimquisition/Polygon/ Etc... really just wanted Assassins Creed in space, Far Cry in space, Grand Theft Auto in Space - they can't play a game that doesn't hold their hand.
This game is not all that!..but I will play & have my experience with it once it's 20 dollars.
i would had gave it 8/10 as it does not have a campaign but its a very good game. now look at the division how that games was broken from the start which cost millions and millions to be made this is a small group of programmers who made the game its a very good game for exploring this is a exploring game if your not into that type of game play dont buy it
That's a good score from Gamespot considering they use 5 as "average".
its intriguing enough to want to try out, maybe for like a budget game, 9.99 or something. I can wait 6mo-year for a sale.
Well, haters will have a field day since they were downplaying the game before it even launched
